We woke up this morning very disappointed.  The forecast for the weather last night was an 80% chance of 4-6 inches of snow last night with an additional 5-8 inches today.  We were guaranteed at least a 2 hour delay, but were pretty confident we would have a snow day.  When we looked outside this morning there was NOTHING.  That meant no delays and definitely no closures.  How could they be so wrong? 
 The thing they weren't wrong about was the temperature.  
 When I dropped the kids off at school the temperature was 5 degrees with a windchill making it feel like -12 degrees!!  I am wearing my cuddle duds today and even wore a winter coat with gloves, something I never do! (I just don't like to wear winter gear.  It is bulky and when you get inside you have to carry it around everywhere with you.  I would just rather get inside quickly and avoid it all together.)

It is no secret that I am not a fan of snow.  I am even less a fan of cold.  I feel like I can't catch my breath and my teeth hurt.  I would have preferred a snow day so we could stay inside all day and avoid the chill that I cannot get to leave my body!!

Of course this morning called for some warm drinks
(hot chocolate for some and chai lattes for others)
Then, the snow started.  Who knows what it will accumulate to.  I am just wondering if it is going to get bad out just in time to pick up the kids from school.  
 The bummer is that these frigid temperatures are supposed to last until at least Monday.   The highs each day are only in the teens!!!  The bright side is that Cody's 6:00AM bball practice was cancelled.

I have been working hard getting ready to set up my Swazi Sales table at church this weekend.  I came back with so many great items in so many beautiful fabrics.  I get so excited every time I get to sell this stuff because I have seen with my own eyes the difference it makes in the lives of these women.  This is all about sustainability and empowerment.  I am amazed at their talent and creativity.  I cannot think of a better Christmas gift to give than one that literally brings life and hope to a family.  We get really cool products from Swaziland and they get the opportunity to live BEYOND SURVIVAL!!!  Now that is something to be excited about.
Just as my own form of rebellion, I got this hand soap out today for us to use!  
I also listened to my favorite Christmas song as I drove through the snow,
 "All I Want For Christmas Is A Really Good Tan"
On the outside, I am in CO, but on the inside, I am at the beach!!
