Baby, It's Cold Outside


these pictures were from Saturday when the snow storm started. i ran outside regardless of my outfit and ran around in the snow. (that's not actually a dress, it's a tank top that pulled down to wear as a skirt because i was in love with the color). my photographer patiently waited as i frolicked and then took a few pictures before we both froze to death.
speaking of freezing, in an older post i mentioned how some of my tights would rip easily, especially the ones of poorer quality. the ever so lovely Jo from Sweet, Mysterious Feast gave me the tip to freeze my tights in the freezer to make them stronger and help them last longer. feeling a little strange, i made some room in my freezer, popped my tights into a ziploc bag, and let them chill over night. I took them out in the morning and lo and behold they felt a little stronger (and a lot colder)! You can't really feel the difference but they haven't ripped yet! :)

p.s.
my photographer, who was sick and still stood out in the falling snow, reluctantly posed for a few shots. all he wanted to do was go into the dining hall and get food.

  6. Yay! Glad to hear that the tight-freezing has been a success so far! I'm jealous of that beautiful snow--we got nothing but rain here in TN.

  7. It looks so cold that you could have worn the tights right away, no freezing needed! The flowers look so pretty in the snow- so do you!
