I actually love rainy days. It's the perfect excuse to cuddle up on the couch with some tea and listen to Bright Eyes (even though every day is a Bright Eyes kinda day). Actually, how about you play this song as you read this post to set the mood.
Now that we've got the mood set, here are some of my favorite rainy day things.
If you know me then you know I have quite a fondness for mugs. This started when I got jealous of my friend Julia's mug collection and decided I needed to collect as well (basically how all of my obsessions start- hello Candy Crush!) This is the starbucks mug that started it all- which happened when Julia bought it and I immediately grabbed one too- and it has become my favorite mug.
I get my tea from all over the place but my favorite of all time is the Earl Grey Creme from Teavana. It basically tastes like Earl Grey with frosting mixed in. 'nuff said.
I'm currently working on a puzzle, which is my favorite rainy day activity. This one is a bit difficult and I haven't given it the attention is deserves but today is the perfect day to work on it. It's just so calming and the perfect time to sit down and listen to some music or a podcast. Me time, it's the best.
The final touch is the perfect blanket to cuddle up in. Now, I have plenty of blankets that I love but my dream is own a Pendleton Blanket. So I don't exactly own this but I dream I'm wrapped up in it every night.
Just thinking about these things is making me sad since I'm stuck in work. Luckily I have a half day at work today so I'll have plenty of time to laze around the house with Penelope (we're babysitting while Rachel is working in South Jersey).
Let us know what your favorite rainy day things are!
