Friday Favorites: Hurricane Edition

We are battening down the hatches this weekend in preparation for Hurricane Irene coming our way!

Charles and I had big plans with both my parents and his parents to head down to Bethany Beach, Delaware for a weekend away – it had been planned for months but sadly we had to cancel because of the inclement weather. Major Bummer!

Last year we headed down to the beach in September and faced Hurricane Earl head on!

We definitely got Earl’d!


This year, we are staying home because traveling is supposed to get pretty bad. I wanted to hit the beach with the ‘rents but its better to be safe than sorry and the word on the street is they are evacuating all the beaches!

In honor of the incoming Hurricane today’s Friday Favorites feature some of my must have’s for the rain (or in this case, the hurricane!)!


I recently purchased a pair of Hunter Rain boots and they are freakin’ fabulous! If you don’t own a pair, but these bad boys on your Christmas list! They are so comfortable and fun to wear!


And if you get the boots, you obviously need the socks that go with the boots! I love the cable cuff welly socks in white.


I may be a bit biased but lululemon’s Right as Rain Jacket is AHHHHmazing! It might be one of the best things I own from lulu – I got it two weeks ago and it has pretty much rained every since and it has worn so amazingly. I am in love!


I asked Lauren for her input on our long run this morning and she told me she wanted to stock up on hurricane beverages to enjoy this weekend, which I thought was silly but fun and awesome at the same time! I bet a lot of people will be stocking up on the adult beverages to enjoy during the storm this weekend, and to that I say “Cheers!”

    I can totally relate on vacation being cancelled. Last night my boyfriend and I decided to spend the night in Atlantic city. Literally right as we were pouring some pre-dinner drinks they slid a notice under the door that we had to evacuate by 6 am Saturday morning. We decided to enjoy a delicious dinner and just head out before all the traffic started. Today it’s supposed to be nice on the beach, I’m bummed out we had to miss it! Hopefully we can all make up for missing vacations with some hurricane celebrating this weekend! 🙂

    Love the boots. My “wellies” are Pucci with pink and black and purple swirls. They make me smile every single time I wear them. 😀

    My favorite rain gear is my North Face knee length rain coat [looks awfully similar to your lululemon one]! And my favorite rainy day activity is curling up and watching a movie 🙂 Stay dry!

    Love your Hunter Boots and Raincoat! We also stocked up on the basics, the stores were madhouses on Friday! Being prepared is the best you can do! I plan to make a fresh blueberry pie sometime this weekend – yummy!

    I have a blog on blogger and I want to add a background image. How do I do that? And the image is from the internet on my flickr account. So how?.
