attitude check!

Nothing like the Winter X Games to make you feel lazy! If you read my previous post, you know I'm digging deep to embrace the Fa-Reeee-Zing temps. After watching awesome snowboarding and skiing events in the Winter X Games my husband and I decide we need to stop whining about the cold and get out for the day.

♥Here are some awesome finds to help me embrace the season♥


Snow is in the Air by Red Bird Ink




So, do we rent some snowmobiles or going skiing. What to do with this cold snow!? With a 4 and 6yr old, we decide cross-country skiing on trails with small hills would be a great start. We had a blast! I think my four year old, Frankie did the best.




this vintage pocket mirror has to be in your pocket when skiing!
"Snow Bunny" by McYarnpants




what a great shot of a Cedar Waxwing. the iced-over berries look yummy!
Winter Bird by Erica Takes Pictures



Erica says: "I was at my great-grandma's house on a very cold, snowy Sunday morning and decided to get out my camera and take some pictures."



Seriously, If Erica can get outside on a cold day with her camera, sit, and wait for the shot.... we have no excuse!
