Ready To Explore This Winter Season?

Thank you to Sierra Trading Post for sponsoring this post. 

One of the best things about the changing seasons is the changing of adventures.  Now that the signs of winter have shown it's face around Colorado we are really ready to enjoy some family time out in the snowy weather.  This weekend we met up with our favorite family photographer for our yearly holiday pictures and lucky for us we had just had a fresh blanket of snow fall the evening before.  It was beautiful but super cold.  With the beauty of the snow out in the park the kids learned a big lesson while exploring.

Lesson Learned - Do not play with the snow when it is freezing cold and you are not dressed for the season.

Jude and Teagan were both tempted through out photo shoot to pick up the snow with their bare hands and sit in the snow banks with no snow pants! Sure it was fun for a while but then the pain of the bitter cold set in. Poor Teagan even learned that sometimes when your hands are "thawing" out it is even worse than when you were holding the snow!

I must say - Krista got the cutest picture of the four of us though. So worth it and once we all thawed out, we decided it was time to start thinking about the kids' winter weather exploring wardrobe!

When I started searching online I came across Sierra Trading Post and I was hooked. I wouldn't be lying if I said that winter clothing is very pricey so finding ways to cut the bill is always important to us, especially when we are buying for growing bodies!

Sierra Trading Post develops long-term partnerships with the best brand names in the business and negotiates super low prices on their very best closeouts, overstock items, and 2nds — then they pass the savings on to you! And as you can see, the savings is clearly marked! These awesome ski pants that will allow Jude to have some crazy fun in the cold snow are close to 50% off! Hello savings!!

Sierra Trading Post Facts:

  • Closeouts are always first quality. When brands make design tweaks to products the previous product is offered at a lower price!
  • Overstock items are always first quality. Overstock simply means that the manufacturer’s inventory is too large and they need to sell these extras.
  • 2nds have minor cosmetic flaws or slight irregularities that don’t affect the fit, performance, or longevity of the item. The labels for these products may be clipped or marked. 

Once we found Jude's ski pants the challenge was now set for Teagan. I knew that I had to find PINK! This girl is all about pink and guess what? Challenge met! I found these amazingly priced bib overalls that will keep her nice and warm and dry while having fun exploring the snow outside this winter.

This winter wardrobe shopping trip was made even better when I saw the great offer that is good from 11/23/2015 - 12/07/2015. 15% off + half off shipping with code ASAVENOW5!! YES!! Clearance items are excluded from the 15% off, but you’ll still save with 50% off shipping!  So not only will Teagan love her new pink bib overalls but I love saving so much money and still finding great quality products for our winter fun!
