one thing you did not know about Barbara Kingsolver

I've been meaning to blog about Thursday night, when I met Barbara Kingsolver(!), but have been too lazy, etc. I'm going to, but for now I thought I would share that she had on the cutest outfit, white shirt, black jacket, short black skirt, sassy scarf, and black tights with the above boots made by Frye.

First she read from her book. We were in the front row on the right side, so I divided my time between watching her boots as she read, shifting weight, standing on one foot, and watching her. When she finished she then allowed the audience to ask questions. The second question, obviously one of many in my mind, was where did she get her fabulous boots? Barbara shyly answered I decided then and there I would go buy me some Barbara Kingsolver boots.

Upon going to their website tonight, I discovered if I was going to buy some Barbara Kingsolver boots, I would need Barbara Kingsolver money. $517.50 on sale.

Now may be a good time to mention my birthday is in 10 days, and I'm a size 10.
