It must be winter around here because all I want to do is lay on the couch in front of the fireplace in sweatpants drinking red wine. Or coffee. Or winter beer. Really, anything will do as long as I am in something cozy and warm.
Last week I was at Target and bought a few pairs of really warm socks. Best idea ever! I usually wear my slippers around the house but it’s nice to have another option to keep my feet really warm in the winter.
Last weekend when it snowed I spent most of the day like this.

And a few weeks ago there was some of this.
Do you guys remember how I have talked about Great Lakes Christmas Ale before? Rob’s family introduced me to it and whenever we see them for the holidays they bring us some. We try to make it last as long as possible!
My new Garmin likes to tell me to “move” a few times a day.
This is fine and probably a good idea after what I just said about laying on the couch as much as possible, but what about when it tells me to move 20 minutes after I finished a 7 mile run? That doesn’t seem right. Or while I am doing strength training. Just because I am not walking around doesn’t mean I’m not moving!
It’s been way too long since I have gone to Starbucks.
2 weeks to be exact. When I looked back at my app to figure that out I realized I have a free drink! Now I need to go ASAP.
Usually I try to make my own coffee at home. For years we have used a Keurig, but this Christmas I said I wanted to try a French Press. We got this one which seemed simple enough. However, I am really struggling to make the perfect brew! It’s either too weak or too strong and all the grinds make a mess when I clean it out. I’ve been experimenting with this on the weekends because it’s too much to handle before work in the mornings.
My typically weekend morning this winter looks like this:
Wake up early, make a cup of coffee in Keurig. Lay on couch under blanket doing blog stuff. Go for run in the cold. Come back and shower, eat, attempt to make coffee in French Press. Fail. Make Keurig coffee instead. Do some meal prep. Back to couch. Start drinking wine.
My life is so exciting.
How have you been staying warm this winter?
