Flood = Rain Boots!

I spoke to soon when I was saying the weather was amazing and warm here earlier in the week. We have been having tons and tons of rain and cold temperatures ever since!!! That's just my luck! Haha! My city is known for it's terribly tragic floods. You might have seen it on the news this year or last year or in 2007 when we had the biggest flood of all in Findlay. Thankfully, my neighborhood is in the highest part of Findlay, so no damage. We had a two hour delay yesterday because so many roads were shut down due to flooding. It's still raining! I needed to get out my rain boots! I am not a big fan of rain boots even though they have some really cute ones. I got a pair in college because I can't stand it when the bottom of my pants get wet and walking around campus when it was raining was awful without these boots!!! I wasn't going to spend a lot on them either because I knew they would go through lots of rain and mud. Many teachers this week had their rain boots on too! You can dress them up and you can dress them down! They really are worth every penny when the bottom of your pants are still dry after you walked through massive puddles and pouring rain.


Classy
 Cheetah Umbrella from Kohls (old) similar to this for $11.14! By the way I love this one because it's so small I can just put it in my teach bag and keep it there for the days I have to walk kids out to their cars or buses!
Cheetah Scarf from Forever 21 (old) similar to this for $18.
Blue Peplum Sweater from TJ Maxx (last year) similar to this for $19.99!
Gray Skinny Pants from H&M (last year) similar to these for $27.99.

Please keep the flood victims of Findlay, OH in your prayers.
