Brrrr. It FREEZING here in Ohio! There is no way we are venturing out in this sub zero arctic air, but we are stocking up on the cold weather duds. After realizing last week that we don’t have adequate winter-wear I’ve been looking online for some good deals. The thing is, we DID have all the ski gloves but somehow over time one would get lost (just like the dozens of socks in our home). There are so many things in our “missing mate” bin…add the ski gloves to the pile! Ugh. It’s frustrating because they are so expensive. Well, not at REI! They are having a great sale right now. This hat for example was something like $24.00 and is now about $7.
The only catch is the items are going fast! Many of the sizes are picked over already. Click here for Rei.com
Also, I received a fun recipe idea from my friend Dr. Allison Brindle at Cleveland Clinic Children’s hospital. Check it out:
Blend: 1 cup sugar, 1 T vanilla, 2 cups of milk.
Add fresh snow (but don’t blend it because it will melt) in until it’s a consistency you like ( I make it like a frosty or milk shake)
Also yummy if you add in Hershey’s syrup or maple syrup
Yes, anything covered in chocolate I am all for!:)
Finally, I am going to post a website per Mitzy’s comment to my last entry. The 2009March for Life is taking place January 22 in D.C. If you would like to get involved in your community, many churches are having prayer vigils and activities. Also, the website www.neversilencelife.com is coordinating a national prayer initiative.
Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!:)
