We're finally back up to double digits here (10° counts!), but with a wind chill that's still below zero, I'm finding it hard to take comfort in that. Add to that the snow that's been falling for the past few hours and I'm more than happy to stay in my nice, warm house, thank you very much.
At least it's warmer than yesterday, which was, as Hubby confirmed, booger-freezin' cold. The only reason I left the house was to venture to Chipotle for dinner with some friends. If not for the idea of tasty foodstuffs, I would've hidden under the covers and refused to show my face again until spring. (Oh, if only that were an option...)
Instead, I must be content with the knowledge that we are 44 days away from a week of warmer weather in beautiful Florida. Until then, I'll use music as a distraction/escape from the weather.
1) The Beach Boys - "Kokomo" Who doesn't want to go to Bermuda or Bahama (come on, pretty mama!)? It's easy to get lost in this song and imagine yourself on a beach, relaxing and listening to the waves rolling in, and that's definitely where I wanna go. (Of course, The Muppets do a super fun version of this song, too! Though, I find myself giggling more than relaxing during their version.)
2) David Lee Roth - "California Girls" OK, so, it's sort of a terrible song (and yeah, I could've gone with the Beach Boys version, but this video is just too hilariously horrible), but it does make me think about warm Cali beaches and bikini-clad women. Whatever you gotta do to keep warm, right?
3) Bowling For Soup - "Ohio (Come Back to Texas)" I can appreciate the sentiment. Like Ohio, there's nothing wrong with Wisconsin... Except the snow and the rain. And the cold. And crazy political shit. But I digress...
Sorry, kids, but I only have time for 3 songs today. Go ahead and tell me what songs help keep you warm when it's cold out so I can add them for extra warmth! I just may need it...
