Sweater:  McKinley {very similar}
Pants:  Lululemon Studio Pant II {with liner}
Hat:  Club Monaco Colleen {tired of seeing it yet?  It’s definitely a favorite!}

Gloves:  Under Armour {I normally wear these while winter running…that being said, my tolerance for cold weather running is terrible & and I only go if the temp is -5C or warmer…}

We had a few mild days recently and we were able to go for a walk without putting on an extra 5 lbs of winter gear.  However, even though this sweater is meant for cold weather, I am also wearing thermal long underwear to stay warm.

Scooter generally wears a backpack on our walks.  Normally we have him carry a couple bottles of water {for himself, since he often gets thirsty on long hikes}, however in the winter he is more apt to eat snow than wait for water, so he carries extra gear instead {light coats, extra mitts, etc}.

…baby, it’s cold outside…

Sorry for the lack of recent updates – we are in the middle of an unseasonably low cold-snap & I have been trying to avoid going outside whenever possible.  Normally the average for this time of year is about -5C.  At that temperature I can still be outside with the dogs – take them running or snowshoeing.  However, with our recent temperatures in the -20’s, they want to be outside even less than I do.

Sorry about the blog-silence.  It’s been a crazy week.  Kevin and I are seriously contemplating buying a new house (plus over 300 acres of land!).  We have been talking mortgages and crunching numbers for the last five days.  We keep flip-flopping & still haven’t come to a decision.  It is literally our dream property, but it costs a pretty penny…  We have a lot more thinking to do…
