Yes, I know, I have spent a good number of posts taking jabs at the frigid Canadian winter. Glad I’m doing my part to perpetuate the Canadian stereotype that we live with abnormal cold year round, and snow storms that only Eskimos know how to deal with.
As I fought my way through my closet last night, with admittedly a few tears in my eyes cause my shorts don’t fit quite like they used too, I realized, there are a few things I am going to miss about the cold winter weather.
Now that spring is in the air, gone are my excuses to wear big chucky sweaters with their fabulous bump errr roll covering properties.
Since the sun is shining I am forced to find something lighter to wear then jeans! Lets face it the right piece of cleverly crafted denim squeezes the bod in all the right places, providing a fantastic illusion of a perfectly fit body. A frilly little sundress can’t do this! You can’t hide your cottage cheese thighs in a sundress!
Even if I don’t spot shorts any more, the Capri’s I do favor still force me to shave my legs on semi regular basis. This means even more time must be added to the ever increasing plucking, picking and grooming schedule. And don’t get me started on the maintenance required for bikini season!
Long sleeve shirts must be traded in for cute little blousey tanks. (this could also read: Must shave underarms and lift some weights so when I wave you don’t see gross amounts of Survivor style armpit hair, and to ensure my arms stops waving when my hand does)
I no longer have an excuse to wear my precious Uggs. I know some people think they look ridiculous, but seriously, have you ever tried a pair of these babies on. They are like walking on a cloud. I must shelve them for the winter and dig out my sandals. Sandals mean pedicure. Not a bad thing, but when you have gone 6 months ignoring your tootsies you are going to need some professional help before you can take those feet out in public. Oh, and in Canada, the weather can turn from Ugg to Sandal overnight. FYI. I was ill prepared.
Signs of summer also means I must quickly start trading in the pop for water, and the chips for veggies. Eating all healthy? Sigh.
Yes, I do adore the spring and summer, but I have realized this having four seasons stuff has it’s advantages too. I’m already looking forward to the fall when I can pull out the chucky sweaters, eighty six the sandals, and indulge myself back up to my winter weight.
Yeah for Canada!
