guess how many?

November 24, 2008

today, i am counting my shoes.

yes. right after i count my blessings. which could take me all. day. long.

but honestly, i have no idea how many pairs of shoes i have.

this is where you come in…

guess how many pairs of shoes i own?

think of it as a game. ooo…i know! it’s so thrilling! 😕

anyway…there will be a prize for the person closest to the amount i have. if more than one of you happens to guess right, or close, i will randomly choose one winner.

what will you get? i’ll let you know later on today.

so come on…let’s get guessing!

    33 if you count the water shoes and that old pair of flip-flops that really should be thrown away.

  7. November 24, 2008 4:43 am

    50

    Counting the pair on your feet.

  8. November 24, 2008 4:52 am

    You counted them already Papa? No fair! lol

    Ok based on what Papa says…. I’ll say 42 lol just for the heck of it :mrgreen:

    I’m gonna say 30!?!?

  11. November 24, 2008 5:33 am

    38 – same as your age…

  12. November 24, 2008 5:45 am

    26 – the age you LOOK 🙂

  13. November 24, 2008 5:46 am

    17

  14. November 24, 2008 5:51 am

    36… I think you are more disciplined than my 51, however I believe you know a good deal and a great shoe when you see it. 🙂 (I’m counting every shoe, yard shoes, flip flops, shoes from the 90s that are still in the back of my closet, etc) Can’t wait to hear your number!

  15. November 24, 2008 5:52 am

    18 pairs not including any slippers you may have been wearing while counting shoes.

    If you’re not going by pairs, that’s 36 individual shoes.

    7 !!

    yeah whatever happened with the other contest? Are you keeping secrets??

  17. November 24, 2008 6:44 am

    i WAS going to enter this contest till i saw Cindy Beall’s answer – i hate not being able to win!

    Who’s gonna top that answer?

    My invisible friend says 7 pairs ! (assuming flip-flops and slippers with bunnies on them count as ‘shoes’?)

    <B

  18. November 24, 2008 7:18 am

    Including season shoes (flip flops & snow boots) I think I have 25 pairs. if only the flip flops outnumbered the boots….dare to dream.

  19. November 24, 2008 7:46 am

    I’m guessing 32…and this is a great idea for the 50×50 drive. I thought that was where you were headed with this.

  20. November 24, 2008 7:51 am

    42…..just pulled a random number out of the air…..although I think that is probably about how many I have!

  21. November 24, 2008 8:14 am

    30 pairs…not counting Kassies.. 😉 and counting flipflops

  22. November 24, 2008 8:31 am

  23. November 24, 2008 8:32 am

    72 pairs!

  24. November 24, 2008 8:41 am

    Hmmm…25 pairs.

  25. November 24, 2008 8:44 am

    mandyT – yes, we had a winner for the 20,000. i’ll be posting that this week too.

    darla – shoes are the one thing kass and i dont share. her feet are smaller than mine. and its too bad, cus she has some slammin shoes in her closet!

  26. November 24, 2008 8:45 am

    I don’t know you well enough to know if you are a “shoe” woman or not, so I will have to take a wild guess.

    48 pairs!

    Now I am curious how many I have, gonna go count.

    BTW I never gave you my blog address, will it work here? hope it’s ok, it’s nothing fancy just a bunch of mumbling of sorts…www.calmbutler.wordpress.com.

    I hope I win! 🙂

    Well I counted my shoes and since were so much alike I’ll say 34 Pairs!

    Wouldnt that be weird if had the same amount?

  32. November 24, 2008 9:47 am

    I am going with 20 pairs.

    That is how many I got rid of this weekend. 🙂

  33. November 24, 2008 9:53 am

    I gotta say 28…it was my first thought 🙂

  34. November 24, 2008 10:05 am

    27 was the first number to pop into my head, so I’m going with it.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    I don’t want to know how many… I want to know what kinds?

    Are you a flipflop girl, (since SoCAL is in your roots) or are a UGboot girl, long leatherboots, 6 inch stillettoes, athletic shoes, slippers??

    They say you can tell a girl by her shoes!!!!

  36. November 24, 2008 10:18 am

    32… final answer.

  37. November 24, 2008 10:35 am

    theresa – you got rid of 20 pairs of shoes this weekend?? wow! how many do you have left?

    jonsquared – seriously.

    i LOVE heels – but my joints dont. so i cant wear real high shoes. and plus i would tower over my man. so i limit the heel to 2″. i love flip flops and casual flats that can still be dressy. when im home, i lounge in my slippers 🙂

  38. November 24, 2008 10:49 am

    I’m going to say 73, cause that is how many I have. (my friend just did a poll on her blog about this, that is why I know) I usually don’t count my shoes…..

    Just what I imagined.. 🙂

  40. November 24, 2008 10:52 am

    Eleventy-two!

  41. November 24, 2008 10:53 am

    Seriously. Do we get more than one guess?

    Are you the prize? Or just one of your old pairs? That’s probably the prize.

  54. November 24, 2008 10:55 am

    Does the fact that I vaguely remember you telling me this once disqualify me from playing? I don’t remember the number, but I remember being surprised…

  55. November 24, 2008 11:00 am

    On second thought, I might’ve just disqualified myself for cheating.
    Or insider trading.

  56. November 24, 2008 11:07 am

    MANDY THOMPSON!!!!

    step away from the caffeine!

  57. November 24, 2008 11:07 am

    elaine – haha! i might be surprised by my total too 😯

  58. November 24, 2008 11:50 am

    haha! Okay, I read the comments … and I think Papa knows his stuff. But assuming that you may possibly have bought a couple pairs (and or found the lost ones) since he visited, and because this number hasn’t been guessed yet ….

    43

    58….probably half not being used, right, maybe??

  60. November 24, 2008 12:00 pm

    68….I love me some flip flops too…and they make up over half of my total…

  61. November 24, 2008 12:43 pm

    you guys are awesome!

    and we have a winner!!!

  62. Jim2 permalink
    November 24, 2008 1:36 pm

    My first thought this morning was 84 – of course counting flip flops, slippers etc. Glad I didn’t put that guess down – how embarassing!

  63. November 24, 2008 1:38 pm

    dang, jim. thats crazy! how many shoes do you own???
