Snow Day

What a difference a week makes!  One week ago, we were in sunny, warm Florida and fast forward to now when it is snowing and freezing!  UGH!  It was so nice to have a snow day on Saturday and I took full advantage.  I did not get out of my pajamas until about 5pm and only then it was just to put on jeans to wear under my Parka (love this longer version).  I had a little cabin fever from packing up Christmas and cleaning up the house from the Holidays, so I put on a parka to run around in the snow with the dogs.  It was fun to play in the snow, get some fresh air and then go back inside to warm up!  This is me…no makeup, housebound and happy!  Looking for items to keep you warm in these frigid temps?  Then check out this post for some favorites and so many options on sale here.

I found the Best Quality Parkas for your Budget

I have wanted to buy a Canada Goose Parka for the last few years and still have not taken the plunge.  I think they have the best quality and everyone swears that they are the warmest jackets on the market. As much as I want one, I found another great quality jacket from Penfield and the price is a little more budget friendly.  I can’t say they are the warmest parkas around, but I think they have an amazing rating and it is an established New England brand.  Either way, I don’t think you can’t go wrong, but I am still holding out for the Canada Goose
