Three words, 19 letters, say it and I’m yours: fleece. lined. leggings.
After being cooped up inside for nearly 48 hours, I was able to get out yesterday and walk around a bit. Because the Virginia Department of Transportation was still urging motorists to stay put, and because I drive a Civic, I didn’t make it too far. But the Vitamin D, fresh air, and opportunity to re-stock on wine was good for my soul.
In all seriousness, I’m pretty sure there is no way I can over-emphasize how lucky I am that I not only have a roof over my head, money to pay my heating bill, and a covered garage and full maintenance staff on-hand. I was able to avoid any and all shoveling, and while its a workout better than PX90, I’ll take a treadmill and the Kardashians any day of the week.
My snow-weekend started off on the right foot. I went into work for a few hours on Friday and then spent the rest of the afternoon imbibing Budweiser’s finest products with my coworkers.
The real brunt of the storm set in on Saturday, as did my hangover. My roommate and I pretty much hung out inside all day, talking how we couldn’t believe it was still snowing, burning our multitude of candles, and reading. I actually finished two books—A Summer Affair and Primates of Park Avenue—and did absolutely nothing for my blog, work, or school. It was basically a mini-vacation that would have only been improved if I had the foresight to buy guacamole.
(Note to self—always buy the guacamole.)
Ask my mom or my best friends, but I usually like to dress up no matter where I’m going. But there’s just something about snow that makes me revert to clothing that could almost pass as pajamas.
For the past three days, I’ve lived in these fleece lined leggings and oversized sweater. I mean, if no one sees you in the outfit, it’s fair game to repeat it, right? (Roommates don’t count.) And you can bet your bottom dollar it’s what I’m wearing today as I work from home.
So for those of you still digging yourselves out, I salute you and empathize with you. (Why not treat yourself to some fleece lined leggings? Too pushy? Sorry, but they’re life-changing.)
For those of you in a tropical climate, I envy you and one day, hopefully before I’m 65, I will be among your kind.
For those of you also working from home today, let’s drink later! ;]
