Im taking all my classes this semester online
its kinda a mind fuck because all my friends are graduated and not having to physically GO to school makes me feel like Im done. 
Until I have 3 essays due on saturday before midnight. 

Since I was in Phoenix for a long weekend 
I realized last night I had to go on a "field trip"
so today I went to the desert museum. 

took these pictures there today

sometimes I get so distracted by the unbearable heat,
that I forget how beautiful Tucson is.

I love minnetonka!

My Minnetonka Story: Ellegra Davis
What was your first pair of Minnetonka boots?
My 5 layer fringe boots were my first and are still my favorite pair of Minnetonkas, they are my go-to shoes. When in doubt, I go to the 5 layer fringe boots.

Where were your first pair of Minnetonka boots purchased?
My first pair were a gift from my lovely best friend for my 21st birthday.  Her dad owns this awesome boot store in Austin TX called Allens Boots and she got them for me from there. If you are ever in Austin be sure to poke your head in that store, its mostly cowboy boots but they have a nice little selection of Minnetonkas!

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonka boots?
I wore my 5 layer fringe boots to an event in downtown Tucson for dia de los muertos. That night at least 5 different people came up up to me and wanted to pet my boots, as if they were shaggy dogs. This one guy was even speaking to them in the voice that you would talk to the cutest puppy in, ” hi little booties!” It was bizarre but it happens all the time to me!

How far have you and your Minnetonka mocs traveled?
My 8 (almost 9 waiting on the 3 layer fringe boots in wine currently in the mail) pairs of mocs have traveled with me everywhere! Every road trip, every overnight, I always have a pair with me. My mocs have gone everywhere with me from Tucson, to LA, to Chicago, to Austin. They have braved the craziness of Lollapalooza, and walked the streets of 6th in Austin TX for South by Southwest.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
Minnetonkas are definitely my go-to shoes, the Kilty mocs when its in the high 90′s outside and I’m going to be exploring the city of Chicago running from train to train. I’ve even covered my brown Kilty’s with rhinestones to make them a little more ME. The extra shine goes a long way. I wear my mocs with everything from short dresses in the summer, to tights and layers in the winter.  They go with everything, you can never go wrong.  I am a devoted Minnetonka fan and they will always be my favorite go-to shoes.

Tell us your Minnetonka story!
Do you remember your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins? Are you a lifelong Minnetonka fan? Tell us your Minnetonka story!
We would love to hear your Minnetonka memories.  Please answer the following questions, sharing your Minnetonka story with us.
send them your story 
and maybe they will send you a free pair of moccs!
im getting these babies from them!

I had a little debate with a friend about tattoos, she kept saying to me its gonna look shitty when you're 60, what about when you're 60?
maybe I wont want a bow garder on my thigh when Im 60 but when Im sixty my skin is gonna be old and gross anyway. do you think I'm gonna be wearing short dresses that show off my leg tattoos when Im 60 anyway? probably not. 

to me half of the tattoo is the story, the time period I got it. I remember everything about the day I got my bow tattoo and for me its a memory of a time in my life..
 I like to think I have stories for all my tattoos. 
when I got my ring finger heart tattoo I was in Chicago for the summer. 
In a new city no friends, no love life I didnt know anyone there and I had this job that I hated 
and all I really wanted was someone to spend the warm summer nights with. 
right before I got my tattoo I got fired from my job because they said I didnt come in even though I wasn't on the schedule.
I was in a bad mood and I wanted that feeling of getting a tattoo.
 I had the idea for a while but I acted on impulse and went and got this heart tattoo. 

but what Im trying to say is every tattoo has a memory, a story, and I remember the places and moods surrounding all my tattoos. so when Im sixty I may not love all the choices I made but who does?
