just when i was feeling all sassy mother nature goes and slaps me in the face. bitter cold-i don't like it but bring it...snow not so much!! i have a confession a few winters ago we had a terrible ice and snowstorm during which i took i really bad fall that left me with a mild concussion. that incident has left me with a fear of snow and ice. i hate coming out in the elements! there wasn't that much snow(maybe 3 inches) but that combined with the threat of black ice and freezing temperatures certainly dialed my sass level down a notch.
this is what i look like when i'm trying not to kill myself by slipping on a patch of black ice. these boots are the closest thing i have to snow boots. i love the plaid flannel and the rubber bottoms mean no slips:) the jeans are comfy and of course cuffed to show off the plaid. my office is freezing so i put on this black sweater for extra warmth. as soon as i finish my paperwork i'm rushing home to a cup of peppermint tea and some magazines(at least until it's time for me to get dinner ready). happy tuesday!
