ten [I am NOT okay with winter] things...

Some people get really excited about winter. They love snow, and being cold, and sledding, and being cold...

I am not one of those people. I'm one of those people who actually runs more in the winter because it gets me into the heat faster. One of those people who thinks it's perfectly acceptable to wear a beanie inside, no matter what the occasion. One of those people who has blankets stashed in secret spots in every room of the house, and has a heater that follows them from room to room like a well loved pet.

If you're one of those people, too, then this list is for you.




I don't like snow, but I love the snowmen created in the comic Calvin and Hobbes. I thought I was in a pickle until I saw these cupcakes on A Baked Creation. Now I can have my snowmen and eat them, too!

I really enjoy knitting when it gets cold. The bigger the project (aka the more it covers my lap), the better. So when I came across this "Giant Super Chunky Knit Blanket" it was love at first sight. Chunky AND a full sized bed cover? Yes please!

Something about lighting a fire, however small it may be, makes me instantly feel warmer. So candles in the winter are a must. I'm particularly fond of this Hermione one from Fandlemonium, and this Jane Austen one from Paddywax.

What's the winter season without hot chocolate? Cold. That's what. This red velvet hot chocolate from Une-deux Senses is a recipe I've been dying to try.

After all your efforts, people are still telling you you need to go outside? I feel your pain. But have no fear! You can take your favorite blanket with you and still look stylish with the help of this No-Sew Sweater Wrap tutorial from A Beautiful Mess!
