It happened again. Somebody mistook me for being “outdoorsy.” I know, I can hear my sister laughing from here. It happens earlier every year, apparently my distaste for cold weather and need to wear twenty-five layers of clothes in said weather, gives the impression that I’m the outdoors type of girl. Don’t get me wrong, I love skiing (spring skiing, that is), walking my dog, and playing in the yard with the kids. As long as it’s sunny…and above 45 degrees. Below that, the hat is on, usually a thermal layer too. So, when I showed up at school conferences with my hat on and my Vapur water bottle (told you I’m never without it), the teacher assumed I was enjoying the cold, damp, ridiculously awful Chicago weather. I guess the “sophisticated woman” look eluded me again.
Although I hear we’re at least supposed to see the sun this weekend, our special today focuses on my three favorite things to keep me warm….
- Recycled hockey hat/mitts: These are crazy warm. Both are lined with recycled fleece for cozy comfort- if only I could figure out how to type while wearing the mitts. Love that the hats are designed to cover ears perfectly. (http://www.favortheearth.com/cgi-bin/productDetails.cgi?pid=245&cid=2)
- Organic hand-crocheted blanket: I know our site calls it a ‘baby’ blanket, but it’s the perfect size for covering my legs while at my desk or draping over my shoulders while having my morning coffee. And…since they’re made by me, if you ask nice I’ll make any color combination or size you’d like! (http://www.favortheearth.com/cgi-bin/productDetails.cgi?pid=192&cid=4)
- Baby Buddha Bowl: Ok, so you’re thinking, “seriously? a bowl keeps you warm?” Why, yes it does! Filled with my grandma’s homemade soup, the bowl nestles right in my hands- no spoon required! (http://www.favortheearth.com/cgi-bin/productDetails.cgi?pid=240&cid=11)
