Last month when I was home in Indiana for my best friends wedding I was actually really dreading the weather situation. See I had told everybody that I vowed not to become one of those people who came home when it was 40 degrees and had on a parka and gloves. When you grow up in a place where 40 is the norm – even warm for winter time – then 40 degrees barely is good enough to break out a coat. But here I was living in Florida where it’s still in the 70’s and even 80’s regularly. I was real worried, and had the come back of ” shut up, at least I live in Florida” all ready for the several people I knew would let me have it. And then while I was packing I remembered something that comes with cold weather that would make it all better . . . a blanket. specifically blanket scarves. There really is nothing like curling up with a cuppa and a warm blanket.

There are so may new cute blanket scarves out there right now, and I can’t justify buying any of them so here I am rocking the old stand by. It’s lucky it’s so dang awesome. Which new ones have you picked up this season? let me live vicariously through you

I am a child of the 90’s, and for 2 years I was a teenager of the 90’s. You guys, the 90’s were amazing. I just recently found out that college freshmen don’t have memories of a world without Jack Dawson or Harry Potter. This was life changing entertainment for me, guys! Life changing. So many life lessons learned from these two men, and the women in their lives. COLLEGE . . . COLLEGE freshmen. 3 things I hope from this . . . 1.I hope I’m not really as old as this makes me feel 2.They don’t know how good they have it. 3.I hope they went back and watched these movies or filled the holes in their heart with similar entertainment from the 2000’s. But, you guys, they don’t do it like they did it in the 90’s.

Also, thanks to my brother – a young adult of the 90’s – I know the wonders of grunge. Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, the pilots, the pumpkins, did I mention Pearl Jam because they were his favorites.  My mother still had a heavy hand in what I wore so the closest I got to wearing grunge back then was a plaid shirt. So you can imagine my excitement when grunge got a little updated and brought into this year.

What’s your favorite decade?
