Winter blah blah's....

Unfortunately Mama has been suffering from my annual bout with "The Winter Blah Blah's", also know as "I hate you January" and "winter can suck it."  I certainly don't have Seasonal Affective Disorder but the combo of super cold weather, minimal sunny days and months before spring arrives makes me want to act like a grizzly bear and hibernate. No jokes. I'd like to fast forward through this bunk time of the year and jump directly into spring.  I've upped my vitamin D intake, increased my workouts at the gym and tried to stay active. But all I really want to do is not much of anything. I went to the mall for the first time in weeks (which is total craziness) because normally it's my home away from home. 
 I really haven't had much desire to shop lately. Shock and horror.

{Though on Friday I did manage to grab these cute nude Nine West pumps. Someday when I can pry the snow covered UGGS off of my feet I'll be able to wear them. Someday...}

 I go to bed at a decent hour and I'm still tired when I wake up which is super annoying. Where has my energy gone? It's obviously time to start drinking double Red-bulls in the morning because coffee is no longer cutting it.
This time last year we were packing our bags for Hawaii but sadly it's not in the cards this winter. Boo.
 I seriously think that winter vay-cays to sunny destinations should be MANDATORY for people living this far north. Mandatory and Government subsidized.  Sounds like a brilliant idea to me.

January, I'm sooo over you.

I am feeling the winter blues too...I'm also suffering from guilt, I feel like all this time indoors should be spent organizing & cleaning but all I want to do is nap! Hope the shoes cheer you up, love them :)

Adrienne said...

Pretty pumps! Sorry about your winter blues...hopefully, the sun will come out up north soon.

I feel the exact same way about Winter, especially January. January in Alberta is so freakin' depressing. I've been in my pajama's for two days! Just don't feel like doing anything and it's too cold outside. Thank Goodness January will be over in a couple of days!

Those nude pumps are awesome! You need to do an outfit post wearing them!

We got a dose of spring this weekend here in TX but I hear it's short lived, le sigh.

Katie said...

Ugh, I hear ya sister! I was just online this weekend looking up the temps in the Bahamas and Puerto Rico. Then I tried looking into booking a trip. But unfortunately I don't have an extra $1500 lying around just to cure my seasonal depression. :( Winter sucks.

Same here, I hate winter. Right now it´s 21° outside and I have to leave for work. I have to wear a hat and I hate it because it makes my hair look wild (but not in a good way wild).I can´t let the kids play outside because after 15 min they´re back because it´s too cold.Clothes on, clothes off, wipe floors, mess. I hate layering. I hate the dry skin on my hands. Wearing scarfs all the time made my hair break off on the back of my head.I hate you January, there you have it. I also hate February and sometimes March. Oh I´m so into it right now ;)
Love the shoes Mama!

Miss*Kimmy said...

Oh My God, I totally know what you mean. Every year around this time we are planning our winter escape, but since we're getting married this year, we've had to put it on hold til our honeymoon after the wedding ... NO!!!! Its so bad here, I'm with you for having mandatory vacations away from this!
Love the shoes by the way =)

Yes, January has sucked BIG TIME! I hate it. At least February is a short month, and then March always brightens things up a bit. But for the moment, it's so very dull and boring!
Oh, and to answer your question, they're gypsies, not just 'unique' people that live in a trailer... you crack me up! xo

Megan said...

January was no fun, but NOW IT IS FEBRUARY...and we're all on to better things :-) And if you're thinking about double-fistin Red Bulls in the a.m., i would suggest NOT too, or you'll end up like me...ready to crash in my office everyday at around 11am
