I have so many layers

running

With the temperatures seasonally cold I found myself faced with a whole new challenge: 

How to dress for succesfully staying warm? 

In previous years I addressed this issue by staying on the couch, but this year I no longer will be deterred by a bit of frostbite. 

I'm a runner hear me roar! 

It's all about layering


Looking around the internet the answer was obvious: layering. To keep warm during wintry temperatures you gotta layer yourself. So that's what I did. 

First I put on a little vest, followed by a t-shirt, followed by a long sleeved top, followed by a sweater. And I finished the look with my windbreaker that I bought at the Aldi for only 2 dollars. 

Just thinking about all the money I saved there made me feel all warm and fuzzy. And to top it off I put a hat on top of me. I looked like I'd gained several ounces. 

But I wasn't cold! 

I'm actually feeling kind of hot. And not in a good way


To be honest, after about half a mile I felt decidedly hot. So I hiked my sweater up around my bosom finally looking like the buxom woman I would have been if only my breasts were bigger. After a succesful, quite heated run, I came home telling my husband: 'I have soo many layers!' to which he replied: 'Yes you do honey. You're really deep.'

I keep trying to convince my kids to layer for the bus. So far, no luck, but I will keep working at it.

LOL
Yeah, I grew up in Arizona but my husband and I moved to Michigan so this is my first "real" winter and there are so many times I overdress or underdress for the temp.

I love your husband's response to your comment! On a serious note, I too have over-layered before a cold winter walk and it can be a decidedly uncomfortable feeling! Thank you for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party Community. Wishing you a happy, healthy New Year!
