Guess who went to the frozen tundra of New York for Christmas and forgot a proper winter coat? That's right - this chick!  I also forgot my favorite wigwam socks and the hubs wouldn't even let me steal his pair. Double fail. The temperatures didn't break over 30 degrees for the entire trip. 

Thankfully, my mother-in-law gave me a very thick hoodie for Christmas which layered perfectly over my endless supply of long sleeve tees and knit hats (seriously, I brought 4 hats, but zero pairs of wool socks).  Let's just say it's a good thing I'm a fan of multiple layers and anti-heavy coats

I had a great time making snow angels, practicing my sliding skills, and even throwing a few snowballs at my dad. All in all, a very good time indeed. Jax, Jewels, and the hubs ditched me because it was too cold outside! It's cool because I got to hang out with this guy: 

And what better way to spend a few minutes alone with my dad than freezing in the snow.  

Oh, spending a few minutes on a frozen retreat admiring Mother Nature's handiwork wasn't bad either. 

See you on the flip side 2013! Ending the year with snow is always ideal for me. Who's coming with me for the next snowball fight? 


  1. I had a thinner black coat for church services, but forgot my heavy snow coat. It wasn't going in my bag and I didn't plan on wearing it while driving. When we came home it was just sitting right by the door - I just forgot to grab it as I locked the door!

    1. Well, at least you had a hat. My in-laws always forget hats when they come visit if I don't remind them. That's what happens, I guess, when you move south from Upstate NY.

  2. ahh it looks so cold but beautiful!

    Happy New Year!
