Pumpkin, lobster chowder sounds very good. I have an evening coat and a "proper" coat, so I think I will go for something fairly casual as well.

I have a great recipe. I'm about to head out the door, but if I remember when I get home, I'll take a pic of it and post here.

1. Are you planning to go skiing this winter?

Nooooooo. I was invited once (plans fell through though) to go skiing and my plan was to sit in the hot tub and drink while everyone was out in the cold skiing. lolololol.

2. When is the last time you ice-skated? (Did you fall?)

Never did and really have no interest. I never could stop on roller skates so I can't see myself ice skating lol. 

3. Any new winter coat this year, if so please describe?

I don't think so. Unless I find a really great deal, I don't need another one and am concentrating on clothes and shoes for Christmas presents. 

4. Favorite winter footwear?

Boots. My new ones are on their way Laughing

5. Favorite winter soup? (Recipe?)

I don't have one, I love them all. Laughing

The warmest boots I own are fake uggs that I got from Costco. lol. They are sheep-skined lined and I wear them to anything that I will be outside for hours.

My son has an invite to spend Spring break in Colorado with friends, snowboarding, which he prefers to skiing. He wants to go but I am a little sad because it's the "last" Spring break.

These will be my newest boots. I usually get 1-2 pairs every year. My dh thinks I have too many boots. I said NO ONE can have TOO many boots (or shoes for that) lololol.

I also want to get a pair of (short with heels) booties to go with leggings and skinny jeans and pants.

1. Are you planning to go skiing this winter?

Nope.

2. When is the last time you ice-skated? (Did you fall?)

Never tried it.  I still have knee problems from when I fell roller-skating in 1978.  I think I should leave skating alone.  

3. Any new winter coat this year, if so please describe?

No...I so rarely wear a coat that whatever one I have usually lives out most of the winter in the back seat of my car.  

4. Favorite winter footwear?

Don't really have any.

5. Favorite winter soup? (Recipe?)

I have a corn chowder recipe that I like.  I also have a pretty good one for ham and potato soup but I really have to be in the mood for that one.  I make soup all year round, though.  Ice cream, too.  Someone here (I think it may have been faduckeggs...yeah, it's been a while) once flipped out about that.  The temperature inside is always the same so if I want something, I have it, regardless of the season.

1. Are you planning to go skiing this winter?

No, I'm staying put this winter, and the Gulf is too cold to water-ski. ;p

2. When is the last time you ice-skated? (Did you fall?)

A few years ago when I went up north for my 25th HS reunion.  No, I didn't fall, but I had friends around to catch me when I wobbled.

3. Any new winter coat this year, if so please describe?

I haven't bought a "winter" coat for a long time, as it rarely dips below 40 here, and when it does even get that cold it's only for a few days. My last coat was bought by my mother; it's a grey mid-length lined jacket of suede-like material (probably a poly blend).

4. Favorite winter footwear?

Ugg. J/K, I am so not into brand name anything. I see a pair of boots I like, they seem reasonably priced and fit well, I buy them.

5. Favorite winter soup? (Recipe?)

Tastefully Simple's Creamy Wild Rice soup. Add water and simmer. ;)

Also great on planes.
