holy crap it's cold!

i spent the entire weekend sitting outside at a baseball tournament. it was 35 degrees (give or take). i was stressing out before we left about how the hell i was possibly going to stay warm. i was thinking over all my warm weather clothes *insert fits of laughter here*.... how was ONE SWEATSHIRT going to keep me warm all day and night long?!?!?!

listen, i like to do things like ice skate and snowboard in the snow and cold. but otherwise, i don't sit outside for hours on end in the freezing flipping cold doing absolutely nothing. at least not on purpose. so i'm not prepared for stuff like this.

thank the goddess i have a boyfriend who is insane. and believes in warm weather gear. and actually owns things like.. jackets! and gloves! because without him.. and this amazing jacket he let me wear all weekend, i probably would have died. just like i said in my twitter.

twitter cold

then the wind kicked in. and while i was super happy to have that amazing coat thing.. i was still freezing my ass off. everywhere that coat wasn't, was cold. i don't like being cold. at.all.

i also had a brilliant realization while at these games
winter fugly

see?
this is what a cold ster looks like. thank god for boyfriends jacket

ster was not made to be all covered up and in layers. ster was made to be free.. in tank tops and happy clothes. winter clothes are not happy clothes!

so um.. is it cold where you are?

I love that you think 35 is cold! But I guess it is cold in California, right?
It's about 14 degrees here.

Two words: Long Johns. Make the cold a lot more bearable. Even if they make your ass look a little wrinkly - then again, they usually fit tight enough that they don't.

35 degress this morning and snow on the east bay hills. Yesterday I was sitting in a gym watching my 6 year old cheer. I had on sweats but after 45 min of sitting, I was getting cold. No heat in the gym and doors open. WFT?

I'm like you, Jennster....I HATE the cold!!!! :p I hate wearing layer upon layer of clothes to be warm outside, only to go inside and swelter! I hate the bulky feeling of layers of clothes. I just plain don't like to be cold!
I'll take the warm weather anyday! :)

Mid-40s here and I'm liking it. I wish it would stay in the 40s-50s all winter ... but I have a feeling we'll be seeing the 20s and 30s soon.

The weather outside is frightful. (But the fire is so delightful.) :) It's freaking COLD here too, and windy, and I enjoyed the first 30 minutes of it this morning (oh look! rain!) and then I was over it. Bah humbug.

Ster, you look hot in whatever you put on. No way in hell I would stay outside in that weather!

Ster, it is so cold where I am, that my husband bought me an ELECTRIC jacket for Christmas. With coils in it like an electric blanket. I am serious.

Go buy yourself a Coleman ProCat portable heater ASAP!! I never, ever, could have survived all my baseball years without it. (Still using it for HS games!) I also bought a "baseball jacket" a huge warm-as-hell thing I didn't mind getting dirty and I keep GLOVES in the pocket always. Scarves are good too and a thermos of baileys and coffee.

I also hate to be cold ... and it is warmer in the OC than in northern cal.

omg that was at the games? lol me and The Man thought you were hunting! LOL

They are predicting 8-14 inches of snow, with blowing winds, whiteout conditions and wind chill in the teens and lower.

Um, yeah its cold here.

Annie said...

ugh, i don't like the cold either! i live in the wrong state, it was 15 degrees this morning and the snow is falling now. boo hoo!

hope you are having a good day hun!!

It's freezing here too - my 'pretend' cute and stylish but not warm 'jacket' isn't cutting it. I might have to bust out the camo too, coveralls anyone?

Parp said...

um yeah hi.... I live in VERMONT!

I do agree 35 is a tad cold to be out playing baseball in.....but really winter clothes are sad?!? there are heaps of pretty sweaters and leggings and fun winter gear....maybe they don't sell it out in Cali...but what is wrong with wearing a tank top UNDER a cute sweater??? or wearing scarves? floopy hats are also very stylish now....i even think ive seen pictures of hollywood people wearing floopy hats.....so don't think winter gear is sad ~ love PARP
