If you live in the Northeast then you know how cold it’s been around here. I know it’s the winter and all, so cooler temps are to be expected, but it has been beyond what I’m used to for a typical season. The good thing is, it’s supposed to warm up a bit this week and at this point even if it gets into the 40’s I’ll probably be ready to break out my swimsuit. Not really, but a girl can dream can’t she. Ahh those beach days can’t come fast enough.
We had so much fun outside with the boys catching snowflakes, throwing snowballs, and even did a relay race to see who could make it to our fence first. That didn’t go over so well when A threw a huge tantrum because Coaty actually beat us all. We’re still working on how not to be a sore loser over here.
One of the things we love doing after playing out in the snow is starting a fire. Our fireplace seems like it has been going non-stop lately, but I love having it feel toasty in the house. Our firewood is stacked up out back so it’s a bit of a trek to go out and collect it. I offered to help Eric grab some but told him if I’m going to be out there collecting wood I might as well look cute doing it 😉 Of course the real cute ones were my two little helpers that came to lend a hand.
My go-to this winter hands down has been sweaters. I just can’t seem to get enough of them and they are one of the only things that have been keeping me warm. I think I mentioned it before, that yellow was a color I never used to wear. I don’t exactly know why, but it’s one of those colors that I think in my head I thought would never look good on me. I think your taste changes as the years go on so what I might have liked five years ago is probably very different from what I would wear now.
When I came across this ruffle trim sweater, the ruffles on it drew me in right away. I love a good knit sweater to lounge around in, but I also love when a sweater has a fun element to it that also makes it easy to wear in the office and have a bit of a dresser feel. I am happy to say that yellow has been a color I have welcomed into my wardrobe and I really think that brighter colors can help change your mood and make these cooler days feel less dreary. Did I mention it’s been cold around here?
