Friday Thoughts on Staying Cozy

Happy Friday friends! I know most of you have been hit with cold and terrible weather. With our first snowstorm of the season hitting New England yesterday and the polar vortex (yes that nasty thing is back) hitting this weekend, I'm all about figuring out how to stay cozy and not go stir crazy at home!  I miss fresh air without feeling like the wind is being knocked out of me and I honestly never thought I'd be excited for thirty degree weather next week #balmy!
What you need to stay warm, cozy night inside, what to do on a snow day

  • I'm always in my UGG slippers in the winter, actually all the time because we don't have carpet. My sister bought them for me a couple years ago and they've held up so well. For sizing they do fit snuggly at first, but the the "fluff" goes down. I'm normally a 7.5, but the 8's fit perfectly!
  • I'm almost ashamed to admit that I didn't make it out of my jogger's yesterday, but the truth is being comfortable on the couch makes me happy - that and no makeup days that go along with cozy days! I did put on a really fuzzy cardigan and wrapped myself on the couch while I was working! 
  • Gary laughs at me because I buy a blanket for the couch what feels like every month, but the bright side is that we don't have to share and each of us can be warm! 
  • An absolute must for a snow day, cold day or just cozy day in the winter is something good to watch on TV with a hot drink. Last year I shared some of my favorite shows that were binge-worthy. 
  • Currently reading this book which is great after I can't take any more TV. Did you know there's a Netflix "movie" that you can play to replicate the look of a fire burning in a fireplace! 
There is a lot of everything I just mentioned in my future this weekend! What are some of your cozy essentials?

  5. Seriously, I can't wait for 30 degrees too! Is it weird that I consider a humidifier a cozy must have? lol I listed that as one of my essentials today. I didn't know Netflix had a mock fireplace! Stay warm girlfriend!

  19. Enjoy your cozy weekend! While I know you must be dying for some fresh air, I love how big storms force people to slow down and enjoy the stillness. And let's face it, lounging with a book or show is one of life's top joys!

  20. Love these ideas! It's been so cold here and will be this weekend, too. Look forward to cozying up with a good book and a hot toddy! And I buy new blankets all the time too. They're much needed!

  21. You know it's bad when low 30s sounds like it will be a heatwave! I don't think you can never have enough blankets for the couch and at least the super cold weather is a good excuse to drink lots of hot chocolate!

  22. I definitely curled up yesterday in front of the fire to read yesterday. I will have to check this book out next! xx, I'm Fixin' To

  23. Stay safe and warm. I was talking to one of my Harvard kiddos yesterday (who has to go back on Tuesday for tennis), and I was like, "As soon as you get into law school, I'm flying up to celebrate... but can we try and make it... when it's not SO cold because this girl is totally not ready for that?!" He lol'ed, but not really because he's mad that he's not accepted anywhere yet, lol.

  39. It's so cold here. It's crazy. I'm in NH. I'm all about being cozy & comfy when it's cold like this. I've stayed in the past 2 days. I'm like you & have been buying a lot of blankets. I got 2 sherpa blankets in the past month. I love blankets, cozy socks, scarves, hats etc...
