Deep freeze



I've finally gotten over my holiday blues and ready to move forward onto a great 2014 but the weather is not cooperating at all. Through the holidays we had rainstorms and flooding followed by snow (along with a few really nice days which spoil you) and the last couple of days we have had wind chill factors somewhere between 35 and 45 below zero. Now that's cold! I don't see how people in the northern parts of the world survive this every winter. A girl can't even dress for an outfit post! lol I've been living in jeans with leggings underneath, tons of sweaters and, of course, my UGG boots. My hair is a mess with static cling and my poor car looks like it's been driven through an ocean of salt. I have to carry Fadra in and out of the house to go potty! It's getting ridiculous! I just thought I would share my misery in case you are going through the same thing. 

On another note, some new tv is back on! My personal favorite guilty pleasure is Teen Wolf which came back on Monday night and tonight American Horror Story is back on with an appearance by Stevie Nicks. A new Justified last night and Sleepy Hollow is back on next Monday. I'm also looking forward to seeing the premiere of Intelligence which is waiting on my dvr and The Following will be back on soon. As far as tv I'm all set. If I can just get a break in the weather I have some fab outfits to share :o)

Speaking of Justified reminded me of a funny story about a fellow in Kentucky who on Monday night escaped from a minimum security prison. When the windshield temperatures reached -45 he walked into a hotel and told the clerk to call the police. He was ready to turn himself in. I don't know about you but if I were planning an escape I'd check the weather report first in the dead of winter. Sounded like a scene from Justified! I love that show! It's set not too far from where my family is from. Next time I head down there I think I'll drive down to the town it's filmed in and get some pictures. See if I can locate that bridge where all the bad deals go down. That would be a fun time. I can guarantee it will absolutely be a summer trip!

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season

UGG.com
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
