today my mountain hardware down parka came in the mail! woohoo!! apparently this piece of gear/clothing will keep me super warm over my three other layers when we have to stop and sit in the snow. never thought i would be this excited about a down jacket, but man, this thing is WARM!

that’s me being a total nerd, you can tell i wasn’t a cheerleader! question: why do i get nerdier (is that a word?) and nerdier as i get older?? hmmm….
