The Blended Blog Asks: How Do You Cozy?

September is here and while we had a Good summer, I do find Joy in the upcoming cooler weather. Today I am linking up with The Blended Blog to talk all things cozy as we head into fall.

1) Slippers--Yes or No?

Big yes. I love slippers because some of my health challenges mean that I my hands and feet get really cold. I am totally into slippers and slipper socks when it is not quite cold enough to wear actual slippers.

The two slippers that are currently in my rotation are Uggs and Land's End. I really think that Uggs in general are the Best in winter foot wear when it comes to warmth. I was able to pick up the Ugg bootie style on sale about two years ago and they are doing a really Good job holding up. I also really love the pink slippers from Land's End that I was gifted last year at a blogger conference. We all had the choice of light or hot pink and of course I chose the hot pink. The Land's End slippers do a really Good job of keeping the toes warm if your your budget needs something at a lower price point. Both make really Good gifts too, so remember that if you are already starting your holiday shopping.  Yes---I just said holiday shopping in early September, don't hate me.

2) What is Your Favorite Blanket?

I wrote about this throw from Nordstrom in this popular post  from last year. Much to my surprise Dancing Granny bought it for me for Christmas. It is now my favorite blanket and I am currently wrapped up in it as I write this post, despite the fact that it is about 90 degrees out...because you know, air conditioning!

3) Thin or Thick Pillow?

I like a thick, fluffy pillow. Well I actually like three of them because I like to sleep with three pillows under my head.

4) Favorite Warm Beverage?

Must I pick just one? Because I can't! I am a coffee drinker but I do like a hot apple cider, with or without rum in it. Hot cider with rum is so Good when you don't feel well. I also do like a PSL and a peppermint mocha. I try to only have about two a season due to the fact that they have a lot of sugar in them. I also ask for only for one and a half or two pumps of syrup maximum or else it is way too sweet.

One time when Hockey Guy was little we were leaving a birthday party and it was really cold out. We ran to Starbucks for a warm cider for him and a peppermint mocha for me. One the way out Hockey Guy said to me "Mom, some times we just need a hot drink." So true, and we still say this to each other when we go for hot beverages.

5) Robe: Yes or No?

I really only wear a robe post showering. Too much information?

6) Comfort Snack Foods?

I love really Good chips and guac. Is there such thing as bad guac? I do so love our Friday pizza nights especially on a cold Friday night when we have a had a long week.

7) Movies or TV Series Binge

We all love the Vacation movies and at least once per day someone in this house quotes a Vacation movie. I am not kidding. 

Running Daddy and I like to get caught up on our Bravo shows too.

8) Actual PJ's or Leggings

Both! I will totally put on leggings or sweats when I get home which Running Daddy and I refer to as "house pants." When it is time for bed, I am pajamas all the way.

9) Do you cozy up on the couch or chair?

We have two couches in the family room so I am usually on one of those. The boys really enjoy the floor pillows that I purchased earlier this year and line them up so that they can cuddle with our dog. He is so not allowed on the new furniture.

10) Hoodie, t-shirt or sweater

A version of all of the above. I don't always really like a hoodie but I do like a sweatshirt or zip up. I love long sleeve t-shirts and have some really cute ones for this season. I am all about sweaters as soon as we can put them on.

These are my cozy thoughts on this warm Labor Day weekend. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to share how you do cozy in the comments below.


  1. Peppermint Mocha sounds delish!


    1. They are so Good! I am not quite ready for one yet, but I will be soon. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I agree the seasonal drinks at sixbucks are too sugary. However, last season they came out with a holiday flat white that was perfection! Bravo for the win! xo

  3. I have never tried a flat white but I think I will try that holiday one if they have it again this year. Thanks for stopping by and have a safe Labor Day weekend!

  4. Love your slippers! We are a 'Vacation' family too - nothing signifies Christmas like Chevy on his ladder with his nail gun. Joanne x

    1. I so agree. All three of us quote one of the Vacation movies at least once per day. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you had a great long weekend!

  5. I like your line about cozy thoughts on a warm Labor Day. It seems early to think about slippers and blankets, but I definitely enjoy extending the fall season. Hope you have a wonderful week! Love that throw blanket!

    1. It's the Best throw blanket! I cannot wait for fall weather even though it was a Good summer! Thanks for reading and commenting!
