My Winter Weather Necessities

Happy Monday friends!

I’m afraid to say that we have a case of the Mondays here in the Ravelli house.


The weather in Durham is just plain yucky, and we didn’t get quite enough beauty sleep last night. So that means extra milk for Mason Modesto and naps for everyone. 

But while I’m enjoying my salad for lunch (can I say how EXCITED I am to NOT be pregnant and have my appetite for salads back!?!?!) I thought I would share a few Winter Weather necessities that I’ve been loving lately.


Oh my lord – these bars. THESE BARS! I love them. I love them so so much! They’re sweet for sure but oh so good. I keep my breastfeeding station stocked and I always have a few in my purse.


Fresh fruit! Parrish and I have been loving fresh fruit this month. We were lucky enough to have several friends and family members bring us fruit, and then Parrish stocked the fridge again yesterday. He even rinsed it all and assembled quick grab-and-go jars. Best Husband Ever!


Chocolate. ‘Nuff Said.

Super easy Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette.

I love this dressing! It’s crazy easy to throw together. Just put all the ingredients listed above in a small ball jar and shake! So yummy on salads. Plus, when you use most of it but still have leftover minced garlic in the bottom of the jar, you can add more olive oil and lemon juice instead of starting from scratch.

What about you? What are your Winter Weather necessities?
