So like forever now I've been eyeing those Woodland Boot Brown shoes from Livie and Luca. Okay, maybe not forever, but for about 20 months or so and when your wee one is 22 months, that's like forever. Anyway, while I've been eyeing these most adorable shoes, I'm also a cheap (with a very big, heh) ass. So I never gave in to my urges to purchase said shoes... though I did constantly keep an eye out for sales and whatnot.
I was determined that there would be a day when I'd be able to slap on a pair of Livie and Luca shoes onto Lovie's little tootsies.
And then one day, I saw that Life with my Littles was doing a giveaway for ANY pair of Livie and Luca shoes! Be still my beating heart, I clicked onto her blog and followed the instructions and entered the giveaway every single way she offered (there were AMPLE ways to enter, too). But there were over 400 entries into the contest; no way would I win.
|i really need to get this girl some new socks- her feet have grown overnight i swear!|
And then when the contest was over and she announced the winners and I saw that "Christina" had won, my heart skipped a beat. Could it be? Did she mean me?
After checking all my email messages and folders I discovered she did mean me! Hot damn, I emailed her back, gave her my choices, and waited. (And let me just saying that narrowing down my choices to my top three was not an easy task! Livie and Luca shoes are simply all so freaking cute! But the ones I won... the ones that arrived in my mailbox just a few days ago... were my favorite from day one.)
When they arrived the other day and I took them out of the box? I may or may not have done a little dance. They're soooo soft and silky and just farking CUTE! Even my skeptical-of-me-blogging-about-my-Lovie-and-leery-of-me-*entering-give-aways husband was impressed with the quality of these shoes. Honestly, had I forked over the 45 or so bucks these beauties run, it would be worth it. The quality is just sincerely that good.
*normally i do not enter giveaways; this was one of maybe three i've ever entered!!
I just want to state that I was not coerced or anything to blog about my win; this is not one of the entries into the contest. Also, Livie and Luca have no clue who I am. I sincerely am just so happy with my win, with the shoes themselves, that I wanted to share with everyone out there.
