My week was turned upside down by the weather. So last week, on Thursday I went to Costco and got half of what I needed on my grocery list with plans to get everything else on Monday because we were headed to Great Wolf Lodge to participate in the Great Wolf Lodge Eco Moms Conference. Because of the weather, yes I’m going to blame the weather, I haven’t had time to post much. I haven’t even really had time to sit down and think about what I learned last week. I barely even made it out and back on Monday, because I’m TERRIFIED of driving in the snow. So here is how it went…
Monday, my kids had their flu shots and it started snowing. It looked like it was starting to stick but then it decided to stop snowing. Of course, as soon as I get everyone in the van and out the door, the snow returns. I’m freaking out while driving, and my kids are asking me questions, all I can say to them is that Mommy needs to concentrate on driving right now ok!
We made it just fine, and the weather really wasn’t that bad. But I did not make it to the store.
Then it got cold!
The snow turned to ice on the streets
It got colder!
I was glad I had a new coat!
We had two different arctic fronts come down. The wind chill was negative at night
Thursday we had snow, enough snow to make this snow man:
Friday is the first day we left the house since I picked my husband up on Monday. I can’t get much blogging done with my husband, it’s not his fault, I just can’t concentrate when he’s home. I get too distracted.
Oh, Did I mention I was glad I had a coat from Land’s End, the Women’s Quilted Down Parka in purple to be exact. Land’s End sent me the Women’s Quilted Down Parka in the color of my choice just in time. Well, it was actually even earlier than the snow started that I received my new warm coat. I needed a new coat because my older coat did not have a hood, and everyone knows that it rains in Washington State, so how I ever thought I could survive with a coat without a hood I will never know.
Now I have a warm coat with a hood and I survived the frigid temperatures, looked stylish, stayed warm, and dry!
Here are some other great coat options from Land’s End
Land’s End sent me the coat mentioned above free to me, in exchange for this unbiased review.
