Colder than cold
I admit that -40 windchill is not comfortable and it felt like a heat wave at 15 degrees today after experiencing the -40...but I still enjoyed my visit to MN. However, considering the only pair of maternity pants I could find are completely flimsy I am glad I live in a warmer climate for this pregnancy!
(PS. I heard when I got home today that they cancelled school here for temps around 3 degrees....it made me laugh because when I was in MN a few of the schools delayed start times when it was -20 and even colder with the windchill...ironic.)
Here is the forward I borrowed from another of my friends blogs (Michelle, I wish I could have seen you and your darling baby's while I was in town! at least I get to see their cute faces on your blog)
