when I find something worth spreading the word about I do!! I love finding great deals and amazing products. And, this time I found a doozy (as in a good doozy, like one you wanna do cartwheels about, not a bad doozy, like a poopy diaper that's squashed up and out the back)!!!
Make sure you read all the way to the end because you don't wanna miss this. It's not only about my sweet kids this time. It's all about you!!
Back in October I showcased some fun shoes that I'd found for Dane. One turned out to be sweet and nostalgic, but for whatever reason, didn't "perform". He crawled right out of them, every time. The others were useful, easy, and fit good. BUT, they were made of cotton and he crawled holes right into the toes (we do some hard core crawling over here).
So, when I did further research, I found these on etsy.
At first glance, I loved them. The colors. The squishy, comfy look of the fleece. I thought about them. I stalked them. I considered and reconsidered. I took Dane outside to crawl on the concrete to wear those holes in the others (they were already thin and thread bare). And, it was then I could justify the purchase of a pair of these most handsome of creatures!
I chose black and brown. Yeah, I know I looove all the fun, bright colors, but I'm utilitarian at heart (my own shoe collection is equally exciting :). And, he's been wearing them since the first week of December! So, that's over a month of every day use AND washing in the machine, and they're still kicking and looking great!
So, you know how I feel. I thought I'd let you hear it from the mouth of the babe....
"I have more fun swinging in my comfy shoes!"
"I can leap pots and pans in a single bound with my sturdy shoes!"
"I can pull out all of mama's baskets while gnawing on an earphone and not skip a beat (get it, earphone, music, beat :) in my shoes from Hilda!!"
AND, I loved them so much for the little munchkin, I got some for the big boys too!! I am waiting for Hilda to start making them for big people cause I'm all in!!
I know I told you it's all about you, so you're probably asking, "What's in it for me?" Well, I was visiting Hilda at Scire 4 this morning to order a gift and get a pair to match Dane's first birthday shirt and I had a stroke of genius (and bravery).
Some of my friends have long been giving away things to their readers, some of my friends have recently begun to give away, and even little ole me has won TWO blog contests!!! So, I held my breath and asked Hilda if she'd like to give away a pair of her shoes to one of you. Guess what she said.........YES!!!!!!!
So, here's the deal. YOU CAN WIN A PAIR OF THESE SHOES!!! Your choice of size and color!! She makes them all the way up to fit a 7 year old, so this isn't just for those of us with little bitties. And, you could always give them away as a gift. Or, you could dress your animal in them. I'm convinced anyone you put them on would l.o.v.e. them!
Here's how it works:
1 entry for telling me about YOUR favorite pair of shoes
1 entry for posting the contest on YOUR facebook status
1 entry for mentioning and linking to this post on YOUR blog
Oh, AND, 1 last entry for becoming a follower (or already being) on the left sidebar
Comment and tell me what you've done. Be nice and honest because a little birdie told me where liars go.
I will close the contest on Friday 7 PM and will post the winner (chosen by random.org, bright and early Saturday morning. Nothing like finding out you're a winner to start the weekend off right!
You want these, I promise. And, if you don't, enter, win, and give them to me! :)
