These Boots

Ricki Boots Found at ShoeMint. Read on for a chance to win your own Ricki Boots!

All of the sudden this week is turning out to be a little crazier than I originally thought it would be. Like I mentioned in my previous post, I'm had to head back to Nebraska a little sooner than planned because I picked up a last minute stand-up show and because I have to go back and mail about 300 Talk Herbie To Me shirts before the big Miami game on Saturday.

Speaking of that Miami game... I am beyond excited to get back to my old stomping grounds in Lincoln for the weekend. I haven't been back in more than a year and I can just feel it's going to be a great weekend. Other than the comedy show I just mentioned above that I picked up, I'm also doing stand-up for the first time in Lincoln at Duffy's Bar at 7 p.m. on Friday. Doing stand-up is kinda scary, doing stand-up in front of people you know is really scary. I haven't been this nervous for a show in a long time. And it doesn't help my nerves that I'm opening for this guy.


His name is Chris Reid and he's a really established comedian, made famous for his work in Kid N' Play back in the 90s. So what I'm saying is Friday is going to be a great night. If you're in the Lincoln area you should probably make your way to Duffys at 7 p.m. The best part is the show is free, no tickets necessary.

And to top it all off fall arrived with a vengeance in Chicago last week. I wasted no time in putting on my brand spanking new Ricki Riding Boots I just got from ShoeMint. I may love summer but I live for boot season. I love the way a good pair of boots can totally make an outfit.


I am over the moon with these boots and how comfortable they are. I also love the details in the buckles and the heel. Living in Chicago I need boots that aren't just cute, they have to be able to take some miles as well. I usually wear my boots down to the bone and I know these won't be any different.


ShoeMint is a seriously awesome members-only (but free) website. They add new styles every month and shipping/returns are always free. I've ordered a few pairs of shoes from ShoeMint and they're always really high quality, but very affordable. If you're a new user you can actually receive $40 off your first pair by clicking here.  Just a forewarning, they have more than thirty styles to choose from it might take you a while to pick out your first pair.

ShoeMint is actually giving one lucky reader a FREE pair of shoes! Just click here and sign up for ShoeMint (it's completely free, no obligation to buy), and then comment back here what your favorite pair of shoes is.

Good luck! Tis the season for shoe shopping!
