Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Top Five reasons I know it’s the holiday season:

  1. I had my first Peppermint Mocha today. In a red holiday cup, no less. (I also tasted an Egg Nog latte for the first time and hated it.)
  2. My coworker from Colorado has already started talking to me about how happy she is NOT to be living in a snowy place (and scraping her windshield and wearing long underwear and..)
  3. I went to Ikea and they already are selling holiday decorations. I didn’t even know Ikea SOLD holiday decorations.
  4. I pulled out my box of winter clothes because I wanted to wear my puffy vests and boots with the fur.
  5. Burgerville has cranberries. (Fun fact: If it weren’t for Burgerville, I wouldn’t know when most fruits and vegetables are in season. Please don’t tell Michael Pollan).

  1. This leads to a question I’ve been wanting to pose for some time – but which didn’t necessary lead to an entire post.

    Sweaters.

    Where do you buy them? How do you store them?

    About this time every year, I realize that my sweater collection is lacking. But they are either cheap (Target, Old Navy) and, unlike lots of other kinds of clothes from those places, don’t last and get all weird and pilly or stretched out, or they cost 70 or 100 dollars (!) at department stores. Ugh.

    Once I get them, I have no where to put them. So begins the next 4 months of my room being a sweater-littered mess. This has got to stop.

    Tips?

    well meg – this really does say it all. sure your brother ate nothing but chocolate milk and meat for the first 21 years of his life, but you are surging into first place in the food specialty arena.
    nice job!!
