Five on Friday

      Honestly, it does not feel like Friday at all today. We are still snowed and iced in here in central Raleigh. School has been closed since Wednesday and we will not be going back until Monday. Besides the Olympics the polar vortex has been all that is on the news it seems.  I am thankful that this time the south was more prepared but still heartbroken for the many who have lost property or lives due to the horrible ice, wind and cold. I am thankful that we have only lost power for a few hours Thursday night while we were sleeping. I am also very grateful that we live in an apartment complex that shovels the walkways and parking lots.  There has been a lot of cleaning, napping and playing games at our apartment over the past few days. I've made it out of the apartment to head to the gym each day and take Charlie on short walks. Thankfully our gym at the apartment has a good treadmill and is not too crowded so I have still been able to get my running in. 
     For today's Five on Friday I'm sharing my favorite winter accessories that have kept me warm and helped me stay dry while trudging through the slush. A pop of pink also makes it Valentine's Day appropriate. 

Snow Day

Snow Day by sweetcarolinabelle 

Cable Knit Hat and Infinity Scarf- I am loving all things cable knit right now. This hat and scarf are perfect over my winter coat and keep me extra warm. Gloves- I love that the gloves have the touch pads on their fingers which enables you not to have to take off your gloves when texting or snapping a photo.  Salted Caramel Chai Tea Latte- Trader Joe can do no wrong in my book. This Chai Latte mix is amazing. It can also be added to make into Chai cookies as well! Hunter Boots- After sludging in the snow in tennis shoes these past few days I finally made the leap and purchased a real pair of rain boots. I know I will be getting a lot of use of these in the next few weeks. The boot socks are just the cherry on top of these beautiful boots and tie in well with my cable knit obsession. 

What are your go to snow day items? How is the weather where you are?

Hope you all have an amazing Valentine's Day!

  3. We've been snowed in here in Charlotte, too but thankfully didn't get much ice. Kudos to you for working out everyday, that is true dedication! I need to check out those gloves, I desperately need a pair with touch pads bc I'm constantly taking mine off to use my phone when walking the dog...annoying. Happy Valentine's Day!
