The Weekly Ten: Reasons I HATE Snow

As a December baby (December 28th to be exact, yes I do now expect you to send me lots of presents) you would think I would be a fan of snow, or at least of winter. But I am not, and I will tell you why.

25 Reasons To Love Winter [Photos]

Winter gets a bad rap. Granted it does have its flaws: blizzards, Uggs, perpetual runny noses, and pale skin complexions. These negatives aside, there are so many wonderful wonders to winter: pets in sweaters, hot chocolate, Christmas trees, Hanukah bushes, and many, many other holiday treats!

9 Cool Places I'd Rather be than Sweating Here

I know it's only June and the dog days of summer have just barely started, but it was 99 degrees here yesterday and after lugging my million-pound air conditioner up 3 flights of stairs, there is nothing I wanted more than the 10 feet of snow that seemed to pile up every other day this past winter.

Friday Faves: Snow Days Then and Now

Remember when you were a little kid, and you’d actually wake up on time for school… just so you could huddle next to the radio and listen for your school to be called on the list of snow days?

Skiing Green

Winter: A Love/ Hate Relationship

About mid-July, after a month and a half of sweating my makeup off and having my thighs chafe in my shorts, I am begging Mother Nature to let winter come. When winter finally arrives, I'm happy as a clam. I’m looking forward to a solid three months of bundling up, celebrating holidays and the crisp winter air that comes with the drop in temperature.

The Green Girl’s Guide to Winter Produce

If you ask any environmentalist what you should eat to go green, they almost always will mention in-season produce. I, like most of us, love the idea of eating fresh vegetables that haven’t been genetically modified to grow year round.

Coupled. Cozy Up When It Gets Cold.

Ok, so maybe it doesn't snow here in Texas, but it's finally gotten to the point where I have to turn the heater on in my apartment! And while I'm really not a fan of snotsicles, I am a huge fan of staying indoors in the winter-time and cuddling up with the boyfriend.

Earth: Polar Bear Butts and Rainforests

Did you do your part to celebrate Earth Day this year? Maybe you showered with your man to conserve water or skipped the cardboard sleeve on your Starbucks to reduce paper waste. As for me, I went to a showing of DisneyNature's new documentary film, Earth.
