Friday Five

Having grown up in Seattle, I pride myself on being able to handle the rainy, cold weather like a champ. However, my time in Vegas has really impacted my take on temperature. I felt so pathetic when I was leaving the gym last week and thought 70 degrees was cold. We finally got a taste of winter with 50-degree weather and rain, which I LOVED (although I’ve become such a wimp). Hello, coats, boots and sweaters! Rob and I are also taking a weekend trip to Big Bear Lake this month to get a little mountain air. It’s finally starting to feel like the holidays are near and I am not mad about it!

  • Thanks so much, Jamie! I can’t wait to check out Minted. I was so happy this week when I got my first red cup from Starbucks, and I love your throwback Halloween pic. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Oh I wish I had your problem. Daydreaming of West Coast life…. Unfortunately, I will be stuck in piles of snow and slippery ice. Looks pretty from afar but terrible in the midst of it. I already wrote a whole post about it that will be out next month. lol Hope you enjoy Big Bear Lake!

    • Haha I’m sure it would be fun for like a day and then I’d be over it. Hope you have some cute, cozy clothes to make it through the winter :)
