22 Ways You Know You've Lost To Winter

Thursday, February 12, 2015


At any given time there are at least 4-5 different coffee mugs around the house. (And our house is tiny.)

When I put on jeans in the morning Chris asks me "why are you getting so fancy today?"

I found my Uggs from college and I actually wear them. And I loathe Uggs.

Sometimes I sit down in the shower. You know, to think and stuff. And cry.

I have to set three alarms in the morning. And I still wake up at least an hour after the last one.

I won't burn a "summer candle" because it just hurts too much.

I've seen my internet friends more than I have real-life friends. And by internet friends I mean fashion bloggers on Instagram I don't know but secretly hate anyway.

I wear snow boots everywhere.

If Chris comes home from work and I have makeup on he asks "are you going somewhere?"

I frequently wear a blanket around my waist like a sarong.

Nine times out of ten I'll cancel any plans I have mistakenly made because I just can't wrap my head around leaving my house. Especially after dusk! Can you imagine?!

I drink around 67 cups of coffee per day.

Then I drink about 20 cups of hot tea.

Vaseline is my go-to "beauty product."

Going out means wearing the "fancy chunky sweater." i.e. any chunky sweater I haven't worn all week.

I carry my space heater around like it's a baby. Sometimes I even talk to it and say things like,"C'mon, space heater let's venture into the living room today."

On the rare occasion I get dressed and ready for a day I think to myself, "this feels nice, I should do it more often."

I've been known to wear my robe under my coat when I go outside. But it's like a really nice robe that's meant to be worn outside I think.

Everything always starts tomorrow. (Eating healthy, working out, doing better at life in general, ext.)

A fun outing for me is a trip to Tj Maxx.

A treat for me is a new candle and new socks from Tj Maxx.

I remember summer like it was a beautiful hallucination that never truly happened. It wasn't right? Tell me it's coming back.

  1. I agree with all of these! And summer, winter, fall, spring no matter what the season is I ALWAYS take one day out of the week and sit in my shower for about 45 minutes and just relax! However it usually comes on a Saturday or Sunday morning when it is all I can do to get rid of my hangover.

  3. During the winter the kettle is constantly running. Drinking hot beverages is my go-to way of keeping warm while working. Love this post!

  7. If I put on jeans I'm being very fancy. The amount of hot tea and coffee i've had lately is out of control.

  8. Hahaha. Love this. It's dropping down to the high 30s tomorrow in Florida and I'm already shaking in my boots. I'm sure you love to hear that ;) But hey, wearing a blanket as a sarong sounds like a fashion statement to me. Work it.

  9. How about: you'd rather stay bundled under the blanket on the couch than get up and turn up the heater because it's just too cold to walk those 6 feet.

  14. Haha yep, I put on makeup and a clean shirt the other day and my boyfriend said the same thing: "Why are you so fancy today?" I only want to leave the house if I'm out of wine or cookies.

  16. I agree with you on this!! Yesterday it was in the 40s here so I actually ventured out to meet some girlfriends for a late lunch and when my husband came home from work he said to me "What did you get all cuted up for today?" and by "cuted up" he meant that I was in jeans, had makeup on, and actually did something with my hair... so sad lol Can't wait til Spring is here!!

  19. I just can't deal with winter anymore. I can't! I don't even want to do anything for Valentine's this weekend--it's supposed to get into the negative!!! NEGATIVE! I don't know how you lived in Chicago. I am never moving further north than Northern Virginia.

  22. I'm so over winter! I'm just dreaming of spring and summer. And constantly telling myself that I should move somewhere where it doesn't get below 32 degrees. Haha, loved this post!

  23. This just described my entire life for the last three months, haha! I live in Canada so we're all supposed to pretend we love the cold, but I can't keep living the lie... good to know I'm not alone!

  28. This is the funniest post about I've ever read about winter. I think about wearing my robe outside. It's like a long hoodie so I think it is ok to wear out. This is my favorite >> "This is the funniest post about I've ever read. I think about wearing my robe outside. It's like a long hoodie so I think it is ok to wear out.
