"Hello! Nice to meet you (going in to shake hands) Oh, sorry, my hands are freezing...just came in from outside and I was just holding a cold drink." Yeah, like a blue freezer pack? These words come out of my mouth often and I am total lying! MY HANDS ARE ALWAYS COLD. And when I shake someone hands, I always feel the need to justify their iciness. Which is why, I am a huge fan of shirts with thumb holes! It's like wearing half a glove and I'll take it. Maybe when I shake your hand, it will only be my pinky and ring finger that startle the north pole out of you.
My favorite designer from renegade, Jo Handmade Clothing, has been incorporating arm warmers and thumb holes in a lot of her winter line.
At some point, my sweet two year old and I started calling each other besties. She has other besties too, like her wa-wa's (aka grandmas), her favorite sitters, sometimes her brother, and other "friends" that live in her crib. One day she received a pair of pink leopard print rain boots and that night she insisted on sleeping with her new goodies....they were brand new, of course, and hadn't been worn. She snuggled those boots like a worn out loved teddy bear. This blog is to keep track of all my besties and pink leopard print wellies. xo
