|And I feel...like a crystal ball.|

My jingle bells have jangled their last jolt, and now it's January.
This morning we woke up to a stunning pink sunrise, melting its way across the scudding grey sky. Lightening looked out the window and said, "Is it gonna be like that all day, Mama?"
Not really. Not outside, at least--but here at Speed Chic you can count on the strength of a hot cup of coffee to chase those icicles off your eyebrows! I'm on cup #3, and things are just beginning to get toasty...
For starters, I finally found the perfect winter coats for Thunder and Lightening:
"Perito" and "Moondoggy" reversible down jackets
(on sale right now at Nordstrom.com)
As for me, I have a theory that perusing swimwear in the wintertime is the perfect antidote to seasonal mood disorder...
Forget about actually trying them on yet (back to Barre Method, anyone?), but simply scoping out the prettiest suits and organizing my dream for summer takes me away from the unwelcome play date Frosty has foisted upon us.
Let's start with the letter Z, for a change, and a bit of zig-zag zeitgeist (cue sound of crashing waves now!)

Gotta have something to look forward to during these stuck-indoors days, no?
As Thunder recently shouted to Lightening over the din of their electric toothbrushes,
"Happy almost-Valentine's Day!"
