Surviving the Cold

I hate winter. I was amused by the snow last week for a couple days, but the cold! Ahh...the cold! I can't remember the last time it was above freezing!

But I'm trying to keep my spirits up and focus on the positives:
coffee with my cream
Another excuse to drink coffee other than not being able to function without it. (Yes, I like coffee with my peppermint mocha creamer.) (Actually, I tend to drink tea because it's cold and coffee because I'm sleepy but I just have the picture of the coffee.)

The cold kills bugs and the one thing I hate more than winter (Other than war, rapists, child molesters, murder, drugs (like cocaine. Valium and Tylenol, etc., are cool.), poverty, hunger, and Nascar.) is bugs.


Wednesday the temperatures will be back above freezing and starting Thursday it's in the 40s for the rest of the 10-day forecast! I can deal with the 40s. (I say that now...)

On a side note, I couldn't think of a non-serious hate to include in my list of things that I hate more than winter, so I asked Jenn, and this was the conversation that followed, shared to show how it takes me awhile to catch on to the latest fashion trends.

me: I'm working on a blog post and need to think of something silly I hate. My hate level on Uggs is dropping at an alarming rate, which has me very concerned.
Jenn: Belts around the waist? Boots over jeans?
me: I love those now.
Jenn: Oh wait, you caved.
me: I'm wearing my boots over my jeans right now.

Hehe, I used to hate boots over my jeans too. Not so much anymore.

Jeans tucked into boots = awesome. And for that matter, belts are also awesome. Jenn likes Michelle Obama's style, how can she hate belts? She and I will need to discuss this.

Carry on :)

Jenn doesn't hate belts, she just knows that I hated them. She had to wear them when she worked at Express 3 years ago and I made fun of her for it daily.

Ahh I used to be VERY anti-Uggs. I don't know how it happened but I suddenly had to have them and now I wear them almost daily!! Boots over jeans just keep my feet so toasty warm in the winter!

It's interesting how tastes change. I used to hate jeans in boots as well. Now I love them. Belts around the waist? I don't think I can pull it off but it looks fantastic on others.

Oh, I also used to hate skinny jeans. About 5 years ago I said to myself that if this fashion trend ever comes back, I won't follow it. Guess what I am wearing on a daily basis now? Yes, SKINNY JEANS!

Yeah...reading this post made me laugh. I used to be anti-boots over jeans, skinny jeans, leggings and uggs-I just didn't really like the look...and now, my wardrobe consists of mostly skinny jeans and leggings. In fact, I caved this year and bought uggs (which I have fallen in love with-who knew you could have warm feet in 0 degree weather! this is a new phenomenon to me!). What am I wearing right now? Skinny jeans and uggs and boy am I comfortable!

Haha...I'm glad to see we're all on the same page with the belts, Uggs, and skinny jeans! ;)
