Thinking Out Loud Thursday - January 25, 2018

Welcome to Thinking Out Loud Thursday!  Glad you popped in and hope you share what's on your mind by linking up below.

We got a touch of warm weather last weekend and today I'm thinking out loud about how much I'm looking forward to Spring.  Fifty-four days from today we can officially usher in the next season.

One of the things I miss in the winter is long days of sunlight.  This time of year by the time I leave work, it's dark.  We've turned the corner on that though-- each day after January 7 gains one minute in the morning and one minute in the evening of day light.  I know the progress is slow, but it's still progress.  

I have a couple of winter favorites that makes the cold weather a bit more bearable.  The first of these things is my fleece pj's.  Eric got me the below pair from Kohl's for Christmas and I'm not kidding, they are the softest, warmest things EVER!  And even better - they are on sale right now for $15.99! I'm so tempted to grab another pair while they still have my size.  Want some?  Click HERE to check them out.  Trust me -- you want a pair of these.


Another thing I wouldn't be able to make it through the winter without is my space heater in the bathroom.  I love to keep the house pretty cool when we sleep, but I don't like to get out of the shower when the bathroom is freezing.  This little space heater solves that problem!  We just turn it on before I get in the shower and by the time I get out, the room is much warmer.  This one is only $15.35 and is worth every penny.  Available HERE if you want to keep your bathroom warm too.

What are some things you do to keep warm in the long, cold days of winter?  

So that's what I'm thinking out loud about today.  What's on your mind?  Link up and let us know!

Enjoy more Thoughts for Thursday at:


  1. I always miss the light too. It's amazing to me that the hours in the day haven't changed yet the days SEEM so much shorter!!

  2. Sorry, but I'm a winter person. My husband, though? Not so much. He complains in the winter of going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark, so I get it. I love my little heater in my office at work! It runs even in the summer! Happy Thursday!

  3. That is so true about daylight. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a wonderful Thursday.

  4. After getting socked with almost 12 inches of snow earlier this week I'm thinking about spring too! I am tired of being cold! Those PJs look so warm! And I should really look into a space heater for the basement, it's always so cold down there!

  5. Oh, those PJs sound amazing! I'm always always cold so fuzzy socks or warm slippers are almost always a must...along with cozy blankets!


  6. That craxks me up about the heater in the bathroom. I think Keith would give me weird looks if I did that, ha!

  7. I have a bathroom heater! It's one of my prized possessions :)

  8. Those PJs sound awesome! I bought some decently priced PJs and they are so comfortable. I would wear them everywhere if I could lol. I really don't like that it gets so dark in the winter. I am so ready for more sunshine.
