It’s raining, it’s pouring!

rainy.jpgMaybe it’s time I actually invest money into an umbrella and pair of rain boots after all the wet weather we’ve been having. It’s been wonderful! Besides the fun it brings to our otherwise boring sun everyday, the reservoirs are filling (after being dangerously low), the ski slopes up north can finally open (after many low snow years), and the ground is soaked (here’s hoping that makes next year’s fire season wimpy!) Back to the story, yeah, I don’t own an umbrella (or rain boots or gloves or a winter hat or earmuffs, wait- do people still use those?) Anyway, last week I had to run into Nordstrom with a Target bag over my head. And then yesterday, Adrian picked up takeout on his way home from work because I wouldn’t run into the grocery store when it was pouring outside. Did I mention I’m a wuss too? Since I have absolutely no idea what to look for in rainy day accessories anymore, I figure if they sell them at reputable merchants then they must work. I love the classic Hunter wellies in merlot. They look sturdy, comfortable and a dark red would be a nice change from basic black. As for umbrellas, I like this J.Crew printed umbrella, on sale for only $19.99. Time to pick that one up when I finally do some Christmas shopping this week! Have a good day!

    The second you buy an umbrella in Arizona is the second it will stop raining.

    Please don’t do it!

    Mike, I didn’t buy an umbrella yet, don’t worry! They were all out of the cute ones at J.Crew so I think I’m going to order it online. And I did hear we are supposed to get another storm this week, so yay!
