We’re traveling today.  I’m so ready to be home with my pups.  Not so much my bar prep books, but definitely my pups.  Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays.

    I picked up a Penfield Hoosac parka at the Nordstrom half-yearly sale, 25% off! I may have to go to South Dakota in February for work, and while it’s fun to joke about a SoCal girl having nothing to wear in the (real) winter, I don’t actually want to freeze. When someone starts talking about -20 I know I’m not prepared. Also, the last time I bought a winter coat was a decade ago, so thought it was time to get a nice grown up version.

      Don’t forget to buy good socks and good gloves. Out of staters always show up in MT with great coats and then skimp on the socks. Smartwool.

    Absolutely agree on the socks. Smartwool is a fantastic product. Once your feet and hands get cold it is difficult to get warm again. Case in point: If you an find them, I recommend you get a couple of pair of thin liners for your gloves. Get the ones that are tech friendly so you can use your phone/tablet without having to expose your hands to the cold.

    • Monica T says:

      Thanks for the tips ladies! Luckily, I am a camper and have a good selection of smartwool socks, but I will probably need to get some other base layers, and glove liners sound like a great idea! What constitutes good gloves for that kind of weather I wonder, leather or wool?

Too Many Tabs: April 19, 2024

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]
