I'm really in denial over this cold weather. No, winter is not here. No, it is not 25 degrees outside. NO!!! *stomps feet like a preschooler*

I absolutely hate being cold, and once I get cold, it is almost impossible to warm me up. Especially my feet. I have a space heater at work directed at my feet and they still remain icicles. I have no explanation.

What I do love about this time of year is all the comfy, cozy accoutrement (yeah...big word for me) that go along with it.

I love dressing up in tights and boots for work.

I love wearing scarves.

Not a big fan of gloves but I can handle them as long as I have a cute pair.

I love having even more of a reason to get a vanilla latte from Starbucks or fix a ginormous mug of hot chocolate in my Anthro mug. It has a W on it...found it on ebay for $1.99 so I figured the W could just stand for some secret word only I know.

I love sweaters. I have a ton of them but usually pull out the same two or three staples most days of the week.

I love fires and candles lit in the fireplace.

I love soup, and dearly miss getting a steaming cup of tomato basil and a grilled cheese from our now closed Sacred Grounds coffee shop.

{stand-ins for the real thing}

That soup was altering. Seriously. The hubs has tried a few times to duplicate it and is getting closer. I have faith in him. And he makes a mean grilled cheese with sourdough and havarti.

So I guess what I'm saying is that I can put up with the cold temperatures as long as I have all of the above. And of course this year I have the extra warmth of snuggling with these two cuties.

Thinking warm thoughts...

Here, here on the cold weather. I have already purchased my "crazy warm boots" and worn them. New to die for though - the almighty sweater sock.
