We’re Expecting Snow!

Posted on: January 21, 2014

We are bracing for another round of Cold Temperatures and an expected accumulation of 1-3 inches of Snow!

To us here in Virginia Beach, it’s not a yearly thing, so we look forward to ANY and the kids are desperately hoping for a SNOW DAY! 


I am so excited to wear my Cognac jacket that I picked up at Steinmart rigth before Christmas….This has been on my wish list since last year as I made the decision to try to get jackets to match each of my boot colors…This will go with both the riding boots pictured above and my cowboy styled ones, pictured here.


I love cognac with black and have seen that alot on Pinterest, but loving patterns in my outfits, I opted for my houndstooth skinny corduroys.   It definitely added that interest that I was hoping for in this look.  I also did a little trick here as my top is a v-neck t-shirt with a scarf to cover up the exposed decolletage.  


This jacket completes my desire to have one for every boot color!  I look forward to other ways to style this jacket. I love this color with green and navy, so those are certain to be one of my next options…

Dear Readers,  I am heading back to Weight Watchers after not going since right before Christmas… It’s time for me to face the music and be accountable for my holiday weight gain and lack of exercisze.  That is why I chose Weight Watachers as my tool for weight loss.  Accountability is the cornerstone of my success and I look forward to going and getting back on track with the wonderful, non judgemental support of those who face this same struggle. 


I am grateful that my daughter has made a decision to get herself out of a toxic work environment! 

I am grateful that I made plans today for a girls lunch on Saturday, with my best friend and our friend who moved to Florida last month….

I am grateful that my son was interested in trying a new homeschooling method of choosing one subject each day instead of doing a little of each. 

I am grateful that my oldesst’s choice to become a Pescatarian ( eats only fish as meat) and how it inspires me to come up with vegetarian dinners for us to try together.

I am grateful for the possiblity of snow accumulation and the excitement among my children!

How pretty that your jacket and boots matches so well! Stay warm :)

Great jacket and I love those pants!

I can’t believe it is supposed to be so cold. I don’t think we’ll end up with snow, but I’m hopeful!

haha! When I just glanced at this title all I saw was “We’re expecting…” I was like what? A ababy??!! Awesome! Then I read on. Snow is exciting too, of course :-)

Now that would not be funny!!!! I would so not want to start over again as my oldest is 27 and youngest 13!!!!!! Thanks for the laugh!!!!!

I like the black and brown together and I really like the jacket. If I could, I would gladly send you some snow and cold. I am getting tired of it and this crazy cold weather. We have another snow day today and have only 1 calamity day left to use-we get 5 every year. Bitter cold temps again this week.

I know for those who’ve had so much already this winter it is a different story… the first snow each year may be nice, but then it just drags on…

I like the color combination of your outfit. I looks really well on you too. You can have some of my cold and snow too… Since Dec 1 we’ve had snow falling 36 of 51 days. Something like 70%. Today is bright and sunny with a temp now (mid-morning) of -2.

Wow and there’s still February which is usually our coldest month…. aaaagh! Time for a Caribean Vacation, LOL!!!!

Love the hounds tooth pants
I was in VA Beach this past weekend
It was freezing on the beach!!
Had my first Orange Crush at Waterman’s

The winds coming from the ocean makes temperatures much colder than inland a little!!!! i so would have joined you for the Orange Crush!!!!

Cognac (or any brown/tan tone) and black is one of my favorite color combinations. The cognac shade is an especially rich one that appeals to me. This looks great and I love the jacket.

Love the cognac and black. One of my favorite color combos. Great jacket too.
