Rainy Day Essentials

Oh blessed beautiful rain! I love love love the rain especially when I can just hang out at home all day. As I am writing this I just got home from school where it was raining all day, which is a whole other ball game lol. The kids were cooped up inside so they can get a little crazy. Yesterday however was the perfect rainy day. I got to wear my favorite rain jacket from North Face, watch movies on the couch with a cozy blanket, and cooked delicious soup. Here are my rainy day essentials...

1. Something warm like soup is a must for cold and rainy days. I made Giada's house soup and it was soooo delicious! I even liked the kale in it which is usually a no- go for me.

2. A waterproof light-weight jacket like this North Face one is perfect. You can layer warmer things underneath it if you need to but it's also lightweight enough to just wear by itself for those not so cold days. 

3. I love a good girly movie especially when my hubby is out of town. Sixteen Candles is a classic in my mind and I loved watching it again on Sunday.

4. I tried out the Crockpot Pumpkin Spiced Latte recipe on Sunday and it was super yummy. I cut the sugar in half because I didn't want it to be too sweet. Perfect for a rainy day!

5. I am an avid reader and a rainy day gives me an excuse to curl up on the couch and read. I am currently reading this book and I really like it so far.

6. Rain boots are a fun addition to your wardrobe on a rainy day. I don't have any right now but I'm eyeing these from Target

I would love to hear your rainy day essentials!

*Disclaimer: This is meant to be a fun post but I do realize there are many people on the East coast who have been faced with tragedy because of the recent flooding. My thoughts and prayers are with the families who have lost their homes and businesses.
