Butt chappin' cold

It was about 89 degrees this weekend.

Tomorrow, low of 17. A change of more than 70 degrees!!!!

Welcome to Texas. Don't like the weather? Wait a few minutes.

We're supposed to get snow. 1-3 inches. Maybe freezing rain.

This sucks. I'm glad I work from home.

It was like that here, too. I live in Memphis. It was 80 this weekend and the low last night was like .. 25 or something. I'm going to get sick!! Blah!!

But I have penguin socks so it's cool. :)

I have what my husband calls my 'bunny suit'. Several years back, I got a bug up my ass that I wanted footed pajamas. Because I'm 6'2", it's REALLY hard to find things like that :) I found a Canadian company, Nights in White Flannel that would custom make footed flannel pajamas for me.

Here's a picture of what they look like (on their site, not on ME)

Now I'm about to go crawl into them. :)

Wow, that's cool! I never knew you were tall. I, myself, am 6'3". I hate it, but I would love to have some footed pajamas .. lol. If I had the money to have them custom made.
Where do you buy your pants? And shoes? Lol.

Shoes are only at Nordstom's, Nordstom's rack and Payless. They are the only places I've found that carry 12s.

Pants, I've been lucky in finding some places. Gap can order all of their jeans in tall and extra tall. There are some jeans at Nordstrom's called Jag Jeans, and they are also available in tall and extra tall. Outside of that, for things other than jeans, I order online from Long Elegant Legs or Tall Etc.. Tall Etc. has a store here in Dallas, so I go down there ever few months to try on clothes. They have REALLY long pants, and their shirts are all longer in the sleeves and torso. Expensive, but worth it to have clothes that aren't 2 sizes too big for you just to be long enough.

Other than that, I keep my eye open for tall pants when I shop. :)

Oh, when I went down to Tall Etc. on Saturday, I actually felt short! There were two girls in there that had to be at LEAST 6'5".

What part of the country are you in?

I'm in Memphis .. I've ordered stuff from LEL before and they're absolutely fabulous. I just thought I would ask to see if you knew of any places I wasn't familiar with.
Most of the time I love going clothes shopping .. but whenever I do, I always manage to feel like a freak because I'm so tall and nothing ever looks right on me. Ever. It's so frustrating! But thank you for telling me about those places, I'll try to look some stuff up when I have the money to look. :)

I rescued Jill-Bob from DFW today, and handed her the WINTER STORM WATCH paperwork, courtesy of a weather service. It was 55F at the time.

Having lived in Texas for 12 years, I understand that the first order of business when I hear that snowflakes are possible is : GO TO THE GROCERY STORE. Once there, I should buy anything remaining on the shelf (doesn't matter what it is). Hundreds of thousands of my neighbors will be there, doing likewise. There is no reason for this; IT IS SIMPLY WHAT WE DO.

I'm thinking of moving to Minot, North Dakota. Think I'd like it there?

If you never left the house.

I had to call Scott, who is out in the middle of the desert in Arizona at some mining site, to let him know that even though he left it very warm here, it won't be that when he returns on Friday.

Alright, I'm going out tomorrow to get fruit coctail in a can, bottled water and batteries for when everything ices, the pipes burst, power goes out and the world stops. ;)

We woke up today to weather in the 20s..highs in the 40s for the rest of the week. I have to say that although the weather has been a bit wacky..I'm always much happier on the east coast than I was in Texas. It feels like we have more real seasons here and I do love that.

I am jealous of you guys getting snow though!

Yup, welcome to Alabama, too! :-) Last month I took pictures of the beautiful fall colors in my neighborhood...and it was 80 degrees outside as I was doing that!

It's so funny how we run immediately to the grocery store when the weather man mentions snow flurries! Everyone buys bread and milk. I guess that's what we'll survive on...bread and milk.

Personally, I stock up on chocolate!

How the heck is it that you are all getting the wintery stuff and we've not had one inch of snow yet? In indiana we usually get a lot by now. Guess I ought to count my blessings. Hang in there and try to stay warm!

Later,
Kim

What part of Indiana do you live in? We've got family (my in-laws) that moved up to the Fort Wayne area.

Yeah, we're pretty much completely iced in now. It's not going to get over 32 tomorrow, and will be all of 11 degrees tomorrow night.
