Friday Favorites: Cold & Rainy Edition
Happy Fri-Yay!! This week has flown by but it has been raining for days so I’ve been stuck inside most of the time. So I’m doing a special edition of Friday Favorites and sharing all my favorite things to help me enjoy the cold and rainy weather!
Give me my sweats or some yoga pants and a tshirt and I’m good to go. When it’s raining all day and I’m stuck in my work clothes at my desk I cannot wait to get home and change into comfy clothes. I change the second I get home and I practically live in my PINK Boyfriend Pants or yoga leggings. I don’t care how basic it is, comfort is key!
Fuzzy Socks & Slippers
Another thing I can’t wait to do at the end of the day is kick off my heels and throw on some fuzzy socks or slippers. I actually don’t think I own a pair of “regular” socks – I only need them for my tennis shoes when I’m working out and in that case, I steal Jeff’s 🙂 – bright and fuzzy socks (the sillyer the better) make me so happy!
Who doesn’t want a warm mug of anything on a cold day? Coffee, hot chocolate, hot apple cider – I love them all, but my go-to on a cold night is hot tea. I want a giant collection of teas, and I’m slowly getting there! Right now, I’m still obsessed with the Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Green Tea and I’m loving the Gingerbread tea I got in my Christmas stocking! And TAZO Passion Fruit tea is always a favorite. They’re all caffeine free so it won’t keep me up at night after all the coffee I drink all day.
When it’s cold and raining out, all I want to do is curl up under a blanket and watch movies. I’ve been all about movie nights lately. Jeff and I watching the entire Harry Potter series because I never saw the last few movies and he has never seen any! *gasp* We’re currently on the fourth movie and I forgot how much I loved Harry Potter! I’ve also had some fun Netflix chick flick nights with the girls. I finally watched Serena, even with the bad reviews I couldn’t miss a J Law/Bradley Cooper movie but I see where the bad reviews came from…and I watched Peace, Love & Misunderstanding which was a little weird but pretty funny.
Soup and more Soup!
I love all the soups, I don’t discriminate! I don’t think I’ve ever had a soup or chili I didn’t like, it’s definitely a comfort food for me (especially Tomato Soup). I hardly make my own though, I usually order it at a restaurant or go through the Panera drive through. So, I’ve found some Pinterest soup recipes I want to try:
I think I’ll try the baked potato soup this weekend! I haven’t broke out the crockpot in a while!
What are your favorite things to make you feel cozy in the Winter?
Have a great weekend! Stay warm!
