• We are ENGAGED!!

      I am a little behind on this post, but we are officially ENGAGED as of October 13, 2018, and I could not be more excited!! Carson did an amazing job surprising me and planning the entire thing. Below are pictures from the secret photographer and all of the details from the surprise!     Carson told me sometime in September that he had a surprise for me and “accidentally” slipped and told me that we had reservations. When he said that my initial thought was we were going to eat at the Disney Castle with the princesses because we had to cancel it back in June. Little did I…

  • Why I Started The Blonde in Boots

      Over the last couple of years, I have contemplated many many times about starting my own blog. I have read SO many other women’s blogs and I always found them fascinating. I loved the idea of starting my own to document my life and have it as something to look back on. This idea has been such a long time coming and I’m proud of myself for finally taking the leap to start it!   Why the name “The Blonde in Boots”? Since I am active duty in the Air Force I wear boots every day with my uniform and thought the name would be the perfect fit to help…
