January 67th

Thursday, January 31, 2019 5:40 AM

Happy Thursday and last day of January!!

Can you believe we have made it through all 67 days of January?  Well at least it has felt like 67 days! Today in the Northeast we are feeling the effects of the polar vortex that completely paralyzed the Midwest. In some parts of the Midwest it was way below zero, with the windchill it felt -70.  What the What? Here in the Boston area it is cold AF, but definitely not as bad. We are expecting single digits with the wind chill -25.  I actually just heard that these temps are worse than Antarctica, Siberia and Everest!!  I hope you are all safe, and warm. 

On a sad note, my son is getting his braces on today which is totally bumming me out. No longer will I look at his baby mouth, but he will have the brace face of a tween (insert crying emoji).   I do however have a fabulous and fun weekend planned to get my mind off the fact we are steadily aging (insert bawling emoji). Hopefully the weekend will be culminated by a Superbowl win by the Pats!! 

I have always had to really stretch to find something I like about winter.  One of the redeeming qualities of winter for me, is sweaters.  I especially love sweaters with fun detailing like the back of this one & the fact it falls off the shoulder is an added bonus. Offered in cream, brick, navy and red, I opted for this neon pink.  I need to be bright and fun in this dreary, cold weather.  

What do you love / hate about winter?

  2. I'm in Chicago and it is pretty rough. At least today is a little, better. It's now -20 hahah. Stay warm girl!


  3. Just LOVE the back of that colorful bright hot pink sweater and the beading detail on your belt! My son should be getting braces this summer and I am so not ready for it!


  4. I love the color of your sweater and the knot detail in the back. It's stylish yet so cozy! I can relate to our kids growing up too fast. In less than two months, my little one will be 5! I am in denial. Don't get me wrong, I still sort of pull my hair out at times with him but still 5? I hope you are having a great week so far and wishing you a fabulous weekend ahead!

  5. Your pink knit looks so fun and cosy for the cold! I find January has gone by really quickly, but it has been a busy month for us and we haven't had the snow to contend with, haha!

    Hope that you are having a great week! We finally have someone coming over to fix the aircon today, yey! Has been no fun in the heatwave without it!

  18. Your hot pink sweater is just gorgeous! I love the back of it. Hope it starts warming up over there as I cannot imagine what that kind of temp would even feel like.


  19. Love the twist style of your pretty pink sweater, it looks wonderful on you with your teddy coat. I am not a winter girl at all either! My consolation is sitting in the great room with the fireplace on while I work, but I need sun!
