Surviving the Cold!

We wanted to share with you a few of our Favorite Things for surviving this arctic cold many of us are experiencing!  It didn’t take long for us to come up with these four favorites!  (This post may contain affiliate links.  This means that if you purchase a product through a link we have here in the post, we may be compensated at no cost to you.) 

Cuddl Duds

Cuddle Duds Pajamas

Wow!  Angie got me hooked on these!  They are warm underwear and they are soft, they are warm and they are comfy!  They also make great P.J.’s! What more could you want?  They even have the little thumb slit in the cuffs so you can pull them over part of your hands.  Love that!  I have to confess that when I work from home, I sometimes wear them all day!  (Shhh, don’t tell!)

Soft Blanket

Soft Blanket

Who can resist an incredibly soft blanket?  We all ended up with a new soft blanket this year!  This is the perfect blanket to snuggle under on these cold winter nights! There are so many brands out there, this one we found at Sam’s Club and love it.  In fact, you can see it on my bed in the Cuddl Duds picture above – it is lightweight yet very warm!

Heated Car Seat Cushion

Heated Seat Cushion

If you don’t have a car with built in heated seats, then this is the next best thing!  Heated Seat Cushions are wonderful this time of year!  I walk across a cold parking lot to get to my van and feel like a popsicle when I get there!  I can have heat in this seat in 1-2 minutes and my van takes about 10 minutes to heat up! This is a picture of the one I use in my van.  Love, love, love it! You can find some here if you want to find one of your own!

DIY:  Microwaveable and Reusable Hand Warmers

Hand Warmers

These are my microwavable hand warmers that I sewed together a few years back.  They are easy to make if you know a little about sewing.  I can throw them in the microwave for 1 minute, put them in my pockets and they keep my hands warm for about 30 minutes or more.  What I like about these is I used an inexpensive fabric for the actual warmer part – that is filled with field corn from the local farm supply and sewn shut.  Then I created a cover for them – kind of a fabric bag, that can be washed easily for sanitary reasons.  I will be posting about how to make these and a larger microwavable heat pack later!  Stay tuned!
