So as the title obviously states, I just got my first pair of Hunter rainboots ever!
I really needed them for the upcoming weather I would be experiencing up in Seattle, as Fall and Winter are quickly approaching. I am honestly super happy with my purchase of one pair of rainboots and one pair of gorgeous white, crocheted inserts.
I am now officially ready to move to Seattle!
I think the best part is that my feet are small enough to fit into the kid’s size shoes, which means…. CHEAPER SHOES!
If you didn’t know already, adult women’s rain boots from Hunter at a minimum price of $148.00, without tax. With my kid’s size ones, however, ALONG WITH the $45.00 inserts, we payed a total of $120.00(!!!!!). Both of those combined added up to less than one pair of the regular adult ones. Also, the funnier part is that the children’s boots fit better on me, length-wise. These rain boots also last much longer than the average rubber shoe, as the rubber does not dry up and crack, making these super durable. So overall, I am so so thrilled!
However, I can’t help but feel absolutely horrible about this splurging on a pair of shoes and socks because just yesterday, my family was shocked with some terrible news (that I’d rather not share at the moment). We are experiencing some hard times financially, and although I had been looking to buy rain boots for some time, I still feel really bad about today’s purchase… *Please keep us in your thoughts and/or prayers, even though you don’t know me on a personal level. I can’t thank you enough!*
It was really crazy. My mom came home for a few minutes during work (because she’s the owner, my mom can leave the coffee stand and take little breaks while my dad looks after it solo, and vice versa!) before we were hit with the bad news, and she was so happy and we laughed and had a lot of fun together just within those 15 minutes. The next time I saw her, about an hour and a half later, she had a blank face, looked so incredibly exhausted both mentally and physically, and I almost couldn’t believe that we had laughed earlier that day. It absolutely broke my heart. Lesson learned; anything and everything can change in a matter of minutes, so be thankful every second of your life.
