During the winter it gets cold here in Kansas, and what does that mean? Ice, snow, wind and having to chop ice for the animals; all while staying somewhat warm yourself. Here is my list of what you need to embark on winter chores:
My lovely pink-striped boots finally got a tear in the side and started letting water in. I found this out after I had plunged my boot into a tank of water...it was not a pleasant experience...cold water, cold socks, bah! So the hubs and I went to Cabela's and I found these Bogs...and they are fantastic! They are comfortable, keep my feet warm, and are cute :-) What more could a girl ask for? And they have oh sh*t handles...like oh sh*t my boots are stuck in the mud and need a pull out or oh sh*t I'm bundled up in coveralls, hat, gloves and can't quite get my feet into the boots. Oh sh*t handles are the bomb!
Coveralls are a must, for warmth and for keeping cow poop, hay, dirt, etc off regular clothes. Mine are Berne and they are pink (of course)
Now I personally thought these were a little dorky...however trying to search for eggs in a dark barn or walking around at night doing chores is kind of freaky and light is needed. So my lovely in-laws got me one for Christmas! It is the bomb! I'm sure I look like a pink overweight cyclops, but I can see and the animals still come running when they see me, so it can't be that bad :-)
There is nothing like facing a cold north wind or getting splattered in the face with freezing water when you're chopping ice, and since I don't have the facial hair the hubs does, a ski mask completes the farm-girl hottie look.
I was talking to some guys and they said there was nothing like a farm-girl in coveralls as a "sexy look"....hmmm I think they must be mistaken with some music video with a girl in a bikini sitting on a tractor. There is nothing sexy about the look above...I really do look like a bloated pink cyclops...oh well keeps me warm :-)
