Stay Warm in Style This Winter With The North Face

Sunday, December 26, 2010

My girls love to play in the snow, and I don't want them to have to come inside and warm up every few minutes because their hands are wet and freezing. We're going to be prepared this winter. I found a pair of pretty North Face kids gloves that are waterproof and will keep their hands warm and dry. They're a pretty pink color, so my girls will actually wear them!

For myself, I found a pair of North Face winter shoes. The style is called snow betty, and they're really cute. I like to be stylish while I'm staying warm! I haven't ordered them yet, but from what I've read in the reviews, you might want to order them in one size larger than your normal size. These shoes are exactly what I've been looking for, because I don't understand why so many boots are made with slippery soles. These boots provide better traction on slick surfaces.

My oldest daughter is more concerned with looking cool than staying warm, so I found a fleece vest that we both like. I must admit that I don't quite understand the concept of a winter vest, but they're extremely popular, so they must be doing something right! My philosophy is that if it's cold enough to wear a thick vest, than your arms are going to get cold, but she insists she's fine as long as she's wearing long sleeves. I had my own favorite styles as a teenager, so I guess this is one of those battles that isn't worth fighting! Plus, it does look cute!

So You Think You Can Dance Is My Favorite Reality TV Show

My favorite reality TV show is So You Think You Can Dance; this show allows viewers to watch professional dancing. Each year the show begins with try outs in several different cities. The dancers are given one minute to show three judges, all professional dancers themselves, what their skill level is. The dancing is very diverse and includes contemporary, ballroom, tap, hip hop, jazz, and even ballet. Those that convince the judges of their ability are given a ticket to Las Vegas.

Las Vegas is where the choreographers give the dancers difficult routines to master including styles that are not the dancer's specialty. The judges are then able to narrow the group down. They usually keep 20 dancers and pair the men with the women. Last season they narrowed down to 10 and brought back previous dancers who they considered to be all stars.

Once the dancers have been paired, each week the pairs randomly draw dance styles to perform and the audience votes for their favorites. The styles vary from ballroom to hip hop; the dancers are amazing and often master these difficult styles. I try not to have a favorite dancer; they always seem to get voted off.

I watch So You Think You Can Dan on DirecTV TV, that way I can DVR the show and I never miss an episode.
