Well, in the spirit of my birthday, I'm writing about another great b-day present. (There will be more of these to come.) A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I was on the look out for a rain coat. Well, I finally made a decision and when my b-day rolled around I crossed my fingers and suggested it as a b-day gift from the in-laws. I found the hooded coat to be quite expensive, so since I'm frugal (do I mention this in every post?) I did my research until I found the same coat on sale. The sale wasn't great but it was still less than buying it direct from Happy Rainy Days. After suggesting it as a present I didn't really hear anymore about it, so when my b-day celebration rolled around I was ecstatic to see the box sitting in the eat-in kitchen. I patiently waited until they handed it over, but once they did I ripped the box open, yanked the coat out, and immediately put it on. (Despite breaking out into a sweat). It's awesome... it fits great, it looks great, and I can't wait to use it. Now I fully understand my b-day falls in the summer and a rain coat isn't actually practical until the weather cools off again, but at least I have it. As of now it's hanging on the coat rack waiting for the first cool rain of autumn. Since I live in a country known for rain and cool weather I should get a lot of use out of it. As always I snapped a pic (don't usually take reflection pics).
I didn't ask for the coat I showed you in a previous post, Happy Rainy Days has so many patterns and designs I searched until I found one that suited me. It was hard to choose between the pink & white or black & white, but you see which one I obviously went with. I'll be sure to write a post once I actually use it! Thanks in-laws, you're great!!!
