but then when it actually gets REALLY cold outside, and you're more like
That second one was me this week. The Yeti and I spent the week on the other side of the country, where it actually SNOWS and your daily routine can be thrown off kilter because it isn't safe enough to take your car out.
Me, being the genius I am, went without a proper coat, or footwear. I know, I KNOW. But I live in California, I don't have those things! And I decided to tough it out for a week rather than buy new things that I wouldn't need as soon as I came home.
WRONG. First off, snow is no joke. I've been in snow plenty of times (when I was young, and with a coat), but it didn't click in my head that a week is a REALLY LONG TIME to be cold. The lovely people we were staying with loaned me a coat, which was a godsend.
But anyway, what I really wanted to talk about was footwear. Tootsies need to be warm, too. Another item of warmness I acquired while gone was a pair of boots. You know the kind. Ugg-type things, that do no favors for the shape of your legs, but they are SO COZY and you're damn right I'm gonna wear them all winter. But wait, there's more!
These won't work for all of your shoes, but they are AMAZING for boots. I'm thinking of getting another pair for my non-Ugg-type boots, too. They're so soft, and they still provide support for all day Winter Wonderland adventures (that is what you're doing, right?) All while keeping you warm and dry! It's like running around in slippers, but, you know....better. Yay!
So that was my week in cold weather education, and it's a good thing, because I came home to California and it was JUST AS COLD...minus the snow. This never happens here, but perfect timing, I guess?
