Summer Girl In A Winter World

 I don't know about you but I'm over winter.  The dark colors and being cold.  I feel like every January-April I whine about Wisconsin's winters.  I would say I'm going to be less whiny this year, but let's face it - I probably will epically fail.  So.  To beat the gloom and doom of this season, my solution is to wear winter brights.  Or straight up neon.  It somehow just makes life easier when I feel like a bolt of sunshine and blind people.  Or I'm just a summer girl that can't give up her neon?

TGIF.  Seriously.  It's only been a three day week for me, yet somehow it feels like a 10 day week.  And sometimes, I think the cold actually drains me more as well.  It's like I'm fighting to stay warm.  Added to that is a potential mega caffeine crash from drinking so much hot coffee to toasty up my bones.  I don't know about you, but I'm beyond excited to just sit on my couch this weekend.  To be fabulously lazy and drink gallons of hot chocolate.  By the way, did you know Crate and Barrel has the most amazing hot chocolate!?  My sister gave me some for Christmas and I CAN'T. STOP. 
Thanks sis.
