Quest Post // The Winter loves of Coconut Robot

Winter in Pittsburgh is cold. Not quite as cold as winters in Wisconsin, but usually more dreary.

But there are a few things that tend to brighten the winter days: game nights, fresh baked bread, and soup. I know. It's a bit random, but these three things really boost my winter spirit.  Especially when February and March snow storms come around! {Now I know Blair resides in the sweet city of Nashville, but I think these three loves are great all year 'round!}

Ready? ready.

My sister and brother-in-law always give us the best games at Christmas--this year they didn't let us down.

My Top Three Games

I've totally gotten hooked on overnight lazy bread. It's just too easy not to be!

I could eat soup every day in the winter. If it wasn't for my husband giving me the "I think we've had enough soup for the week" look.

But I can't take too long of a break. There is just something about a piping hot bowl of soup or chowder or stew that makes my Norwegian stomach happy.

So there you have it. Just a few things that bring a smile to my face in the dead of winter--along with a wood stove, coffee brewing, movie nights, sweat pants and a myriad of other loves.
What puts a smile on your face during these winter months?
Thanks so much to Blair for letting me invade her beautiful space today!
