Snow falling thick and fast, wind blowing my hair everywhere, temperature completely freezing me . . . yes, these really are the best we got.

Notice my husband getting distracted . . .
Yup. Completely lost him. (This is Sasha running along with a neighbor dog.)
Anyway, I just have to make a note about (read: plug for) these boots I'm wearing here. I got them on a trip to Colorado this Christmas, and while I don't like to talk about things I don't really know about, (what am I saying? I do that all the time!) I would like to highly recommend them. I tried on maybe two dozen shoes while in Estes - my hubby wanted to do lots of hiking, and I knew my cute Ralph Lauren boots weren't going to cut it. So after trying on tons of shoes, these were the most comfortable (by FAR), least unattractive (I don't find any hiking boots to be in any way cute. But these are not so offensive!), and very easy to put on (elastic string so you just pull on the toggle and secure, then one velcro strap. Easy peasy!). I did plenty of hiking on that trip, and I never slipped. In fact, the hubs just decided to wear his combat boots, but quickly discovered that they were running out of traction. Several times, I actually had to steady him because I always had sure footing! These are great, and their waterproof-ness is no joke - no moisture ever even began to seep through, and even when snow got above the top, the seal around my ankle was nice and snug and didn't let anything down. Anyway, I completely recommend them, if you're looking.
That's it! Now let's all be glad, at least, that it doesn't look like these pictures outside. Unless you live in the midwest, and it does. Then let's all just feel sorry for you. : P
