    We just moved from Alabama,where we had 1/4″ of snow every 5 years, to Colorado and everyone warned me that we were going to get SO MUCH SNOW. And guess what. We’ve had basically no snow and I’m so disappointed!

    I don’t want a ton of snow but every once in awhile would be nice. The ear warmer would come in handy though because the wind is awful here!

  2. says

    1. I used to live in the mountains, and I would dream of a winter with no snow. Now I live in the South, and miss the snow! (go figure!) so I think my answer is I would like a little of both. I would love to experience a white Christmas, and then the snow can go away and be mild again. A girl can dream, right? Love this ear warmer!!!

  3. Mandi A. says

    I would love to have tons of snow!!! i am originally from louisiana so it doesn’t snow much there!!! Fortunately, we are military so we get to travel a lot and see lots of snow!!!

  4. Melody says

    I live in Kentucky, and we usually have snow. However, this year we have had warm temperatures and tornados! So, while I never thought I’d say this, I want SNOW!!!

  5. says

    I like my snow but the ice can just move on over Oklahoma. It has been a mild winter so only a little dusting so far. Bought my girls some cute ear warmers for Christmas but not for myself. So would just love to win one of my very own.

  6. Breanna says

    I don’t mind the snow, I just hate the ice! I live in Kentucky, and there are so many drivers (like myself!) that are just so uncomfortable driving on the stuff. Love that ear warmer, and my favorite & most-worn color is gray, also!

  7. says

    definitely a mild winter with no snow… i’m a southern girl to the core. although my little ones loved to play in the snow (that one time it actually really came down and stuck) so a guess some snow wouldn’t be all that bad… but i loathe the cold… hmmm… (lol)

    I live in Iowa and I would MUCH prefer a winter with little to no snow! We didn’t get snow until January this year and it was wonderful! Now winter is back with a vengeance and I’m not too happy about it.


  9. says

    I am from fl and now I live in north Carolina , big difference is winter weather! So to answer the question I would say a big nice winter with snow! I love snow! I can take my 18 month out and make snow balls and drink coffee or hot choclate !

  10. Sara Brownlee says

    I am from Arkansas, and we have barely had winter at all this year. The jonquils are even starting to bloom on the roadsides! I prefer at least one good snow (specifically on a school day so we can get out of school!). I hope it snows at least once this year…

  11. angela blaylock says

    We are having a VERY mild winter here in Oklahoma. and Im loving every minute of it. Nothing like cleaning the house with the windows wide open in January!

    I think I would rather have winter with tons of snow…that’s the point of winter right! Especially since I live in Michigan and we are known for snow!!!

    I also just “liked” Three Bird Nest on facebook, I’m excited to see what else they have to offer!!!! :)

    Tons and tons of snow! I Live in MN and we haven’t really had any snow at all and it seems really strange! I want to snowboard, sled and play in the snow!!

    Thanks for the giveaway! Obsessed with the ear warmer!

  14. says

    I’ve seen this headband(linked to her etsy page)on Pinterest. I love it and wish I could make one.

    I also live in central NC and while it has been cold, there has been no snow. I prefer mild winters with no snow. My skin is super sensitive and this cold air is wrecking my skin!!

    I’d rather have a mild winter with barely any snow. I live in Oregon and we don’t usually get much snow. When we do, even if it’s only a bit, everything shuts down, and I don’t like being trapped at home!

  17. says

    I would love love love to have a cold winter with tons of snow! Although cleaning my car off, and trudging through the snowy city of Pittsburgh can be a hassle sometimes, I think this city is at its finest when it’s covered in snow! :) Pittsburgh has a lot of gloomy and rainy weather throughout the year – we’ve even had some days like that in December and January this winter – and when the snow covers the ground it not only gives everyone a new perspective of their day, but a new perspective on the city also. It’s simply stunning.

  18. says

    I am not a winter gal AT ALL! I live in S. Dak. And winters are usually miserable. This year has been great…just got our first snow last week. :). So my answer….mild all the way!

  19. says

    I live in Ohio and our winter has been strangely mild this year I don’t like it! I miss stomping around in several inches of snow. Hoping for a good snow storm here soon.

    I live in Wisconsin so lots of snow is a must, although I could do without the below zero temperatures sometimes. Bring on winter, we are still waiting this year.

    I have lived in Arizona for the majority of my life but have spent a few years in Oklahoma and Utah. After experiencing many different seasons I really think I would love a heavy winter with the opportunity to escape to somewhere warm when I get the winter blues. But I have to say I love my AZ winters it keeps me pretty happy and I do enjoy going to the cabin when we want to be chilly.

  23. says

    Being a southern girl, I would rather have a mild winter with barely any snow. One snow fall is ok, then let’s go straight to warmer weather!

    It doesn’t feel like winter unless there is tons of snow! Snow is beautiful. I love how it sparkles in the sun!

    Well I’d rather have a mild winter, we live in Washington (state) and just had our one, and hopefully only, big freeze. Lost power, cars were stuck and we had a week of no work. As fun as it was, I like mild temperatures and no snow.. I’ll deal with the rain.

  26. says

    I would prefer a mild winter with no snow (like what we’re having in NC this year, yay!) I used to love snow when school was canceled/work was canceled. But now it’s just a big mess!

    I would rather have a mild winter with snow on Christmas and New Years and then light flurries throughout the rest of the season. Snow over the holidays is essential, but then chilly temperatures are all you need to wear cute winter clothing. (

  28. says

    I LOVE both mild and snowy winters. I don’t think the Holidays are complete without snow, but on other days I like milder weather so I can still take the kids out of the house and do things.

    If I had to pick, I would pick the snow – perfect for cuddling with my husband in front of the fireplace and baking and making hot chocolate with the kids :)

  29. says

    Became a fan… would love to win one of these! I’ve been eye-ing the style since I’ve seen it around and have been afraid to invest in one since I didn’t know how to really wear it. Thanks for the tutorial! Hope I win :)

    Living in ND we usually have lots of snow and it is always cold. This year we have had a very mild winter and I miss the beautiful snow. So I vote cold winter, lots of snow. My kids haven’t even been able to go sledding this year! Libby

  31. Angela May says

    I would much rather have a mild winter! I live in Indiana and at times we have lots of snow…when we do, I wish I was somewhere tropical :) Here where I live, we always say “ya never know Indiana weather…one day it can be 55 and sunny and the next day there may be a foot of snow!” Very unpredictable!!

  32. says

    I’m not sure about which winter I’d like! It’s been weirdly warm for January in Ohio, but I’m not complaining! I do like some snow though– just not ice!


  33. Anonymous says

    I love cold Winters due to the fact that I live in Atlanta! We do t get to enjoy the snow very often and when we are lucky enough we get way too excited about it! Cold winters ate fun because you get to bundle up in scarves, leggings & hats !!!!

    Def a COLD winter with a whole heap of snow!
    I guess because in south carolina, you don’t get a big snow. It would be fabulous for it to snow here. =)


  35. says

    I am actually loving the mild winter here in New England this year. Although snow is fun for a bit, I’ll take an early Spring any day.


  36. says

    We’re having a very mild winter here in western Oklahoma so I really MISS the snow and c-c-c-cold! I’m a high school counselor and I have to admit that I LOVE having snow days with my kids! Not sure that we’re going to get to have any this year! So, bring on the snow! :)

  37. says

    I have been looking for a headband for winter and when I saw this one I decided that I had to have it. Even better if I could win it!

    I am from Canada and we usually have very cold winter’s but this year is milder and I’m loving it. I’ll take mild with not much snow. We are only about 3 or 4 hours away from the mountains so we can always drive there if we want lots of snow.

    I was born and raised in california, so needless to say I am a sun, sand and ocean kind of girl. I moved to a small town outside of reno where it snows. We dont get alot of snow but we do get it. My kids and my husbadnd love love love the snow and are snowboarding addicts. I didnt realize I loved and needed the snow until this year when we didnt have a white christmas and this last weekend was our first snow fall and today it is all gone. I have been sad and kind of depressed and when i woke up to see the snow it was so pretty and it gave me a huge smile. Last year we had our first snow storm that actually closed down the schools and I am hoping for more snow storms like that this year. I am going to call in sick to work and cuddle in a blanket on the couch and watch a movie or read a good book while its snowing. All while my husband and kids chomp at the bit to go snowboarding. Up until this past weekend we havent had snow or rain and I think if im going to freeze my you know what off there needs to be a reason- bring on the snow!!

  39. says

    I would LOVE to win this! I live in Minne-SNOW-ta, but this season we’ve had barely a week of snowy days and I love it…although I did miss it at Christmas!

    Hey Kate,

    first can I tell you that I am so jealous of your name, when I was little and me and my friends would play house I would pretened my name was Kate..haha! But, I also live in North Carolina, near Charlotte!! But, since we don’t always get that much snow I would rather have a cold winter with a lot of snow just because I think it is so beautiful, it really accents everything that God has created when it is covered in white! :)
    I also just became a fan, and I love all of your hair videos!!

    xoxo, Alaina

    I would rather have a mild winter with barely any snow! I have many reasons that I am not a huge fan of winter but my top three are, 1. I strongly dislike driving in the snow, 2. Ice is not good for the uncoordinated…and that’s me haha and 3. I feel like I can’t wear any cute shoes in the snow!

    I just became a fan of Three Birds Nest on Facebook!

    I would much rather have a mild winter with barely any snow since I can’t stand being cold! But since I live in the midwest this typically doesn’t happen :)

    I’m from VA where usually we get a good amount of snow.. I hate everything about snow except for how pretty it is.. I was born in the summer so I love the heat, and the beach and everything that comes along with summer..

    Love, Amber

    OMGosh… I became a fan (liked) AND ordered from Three Bird Nest yesterday! Their pieces are amazing. I live in Alaska where we have had LOTS of snow this year. I am ready for a mild winter.

    Ordered from them yesterday, got notice it was shipped last night. Great service!!!

    Love the blog! Thanks for sharing! I’m from North Dakota and we just got our first big snowfall, but our winter has been really mild so far. I’m for a mild, but snowy winter. Maybe it’s because my 4 year old girl LOVES the snow :)

  46. Tiffany says

    We live way down in South Texas where it never snows. It’s hot and humid all the time. So anytime it drops below 45 degrees, we think we’re going to freeze to death. I would love to visit somewhere that it snows. I think these ear warmer would be so cute and warm for the times it does get cold here.
    If I had to choose, it would be a mild winter.

  47. says

    I have been loving our winter this year… mild with bits and pieces of cold. We still haven’t had much of a snow, and I’m ok with that! I’m originally from the San Francisco bay area, so I’m loving my Cali-like weather!

    Although everyone thinks I’m crazy, I love a cold winter with lots of snow. I love any excuse to bust out my favorite winter accessories – cute hats, detailed gloves, fluffy scarves, etc.

    I like a snowy winter, but I haven’t minded the mild one we are having this year.

    Honestly, at this point we have had a very abnormally mild winter. Basically what that means for us is it’s very MUDDY. We’re getting the same amount of precipitation, but instead of it being snow it’s been rain, creating mud like we usually just have in the spring. I probably would have used to say I’d rather have a mild winter, but right now, I keep finding myself wanting the temps to drop so that we’ll have snow instead of mud.

  53. says

    Being from Tennessee, we truly never get a lot of snow but we get ICE! As a school teacher and enjoying “snow days”I would MUCH rather have a BAD winter with lots and lots of snow. I absolutely adore spending my snow days with a hot pot of soup in the crock pot and my puppies cuddled up close by! :)

  54. says

    I would prefer mild snow. I live in utah so, it’s very random. Now that I have 2 little ones, I realize what a pain it is to even go to the grocery store with sopping wet clothes, coats, shoes, etc. My Isabelle loves to play in the snow, however, but just a little bit of it is just fine.

  55. says

    Bring on the snow! I have lived in places, for the last 4 years, that are very mild to super sunny and hot during winter. And it’s not just the snow I love…it’s the super cute sweaters and boots that also come with winter! :) elizabethharrison07 at gmail dot com

  56. says

    I live in Arkansas and we always say “If you don’t like the weather right now, just wait 5 minutes and it will change again!” Which is SO true! However, when it comes to winter time, I prefer a mild winter with one good stay-home-for-a-day (or two) snow storm. We are due for our snow, which usually comes in late January, early February. The super cute knitted ear warmer would be perfect for when the snow does come! Even better will be when it’s football season again and the wind is making my ears chilly, just pull out the ear warmer and voila!

    I’ve lived in Southern California for my entire life, so I think a cold winter with lots of snow would be fantastic!

    A mild winter with barely any snow!! I live in Utah; I’ve had enough snow in my day. Except the past few years it just postpones the snow….so it starts around Feb and ends in June…NOT COOL :)

    I have a mustard color i wear when its get cold here in Texas. Which is rarely :( I would take either or or. mild or cold with snow. I love both :)I love to read your daily blog. Great site :)

    I would love to have a cold winter and lots of snow. We don’t get a lot of snow in Alabama so to get it and a few days off with my kiddos to play would be great.

    I also Liked Three Bird Nest.

    I LOVE the snow. I live in Utah so I better huh? I absolutely love really winter-y days. With tons of snow. It doesn’t matter if I’m snuggled up at home watching it or at work watching it through the window’s. I love major snow storms!! So I need to keep my ears warm!!

    I would rather have a snow filled winter, but I have enjoyed the mild one this year.

    I’m a much bigger fan of having a full blown winter. This year just hasn’t felt wintery enough, I mean seriously since when does Indiana have 60+* days in January!

    I would normally want a cold winter with lots of snow… I’m such a kid at heart. BUT this winter my husband and I are expecting our first baby and I really am enjoying this mild winter. I definitely do not need a big snow storm close to my due date!! Love your blog and hair! xo

    I absolutely LOVE snow! buuuut I prefer a little warmer weather. I live in Canada and we’ve had a pretty warm winter so far, with only one bitterly cold week (40 below all week long!)

    I live in Oklahoma – the only winters I’m used to are the ones with no snow. :( I wouldn’t mind a change! Especially if I can bundle up and look as cute as you in that ear warmer!

  71. Kathryn West says

    I would rather have a cold winter with tons of snow. We had a great winter last year and the year before when my daughter was a baby, but now that she’s old enough to enjoy it, it has only snowed once and maybe an inch or two. Plus, I think the snow makes things look pretty and quiet. Driving is the only problem, but it’s a good reason to stay in and have family time. E-mail:

    Would you rather have a mild winter with barely any snow, or a cold winter with tons of snow?

    A cold winter with tons of snow for sure! I love the Winter!

    I would much rather have a mild winter. I’m a North Carolina girl born and raised, and I would be fine if it was between about 60 and 80 degrees all year. Cold enough for cute scarves and jackets in the winter and warm enough for flirty dresses in the summer. I’m totally fine with having to travel somewhere for snow and hot heat!

    I would much rather have a mild winter. I’m a North Carolina girl born and raised, and I would be completely content if the high temperature was between about 60 and 80 degrees all year — cold enough for cute scarves and coats in the summer and warm enough for flirty dresses in the winter. I’m fine with having to travel to see snow or hot heat — built in vacays!

    Since I live in Kansas and we had a pretty bad winter the past 2 years I’d rather have a mild winter with only I enjoy the snow though, as long as it doesn’t get out of hand.

  76. says

    A cold winter with major snow!!! :) Maybe it’s because I live in the South, and we don’t get much snow. But when we do, roads and work close. :)

  77. says

    I’d rather have 85 degrees and sunny BUT if I had to choose, I’d like a very cold day with lots of snow. Now, this is of course only if it’s a Saturday or Sunday and I dont have to drive my 33 miles to work because in Memphis when it snows, people become real dumb on the roads. :)

  78. says

    Love this giveaway, that earwarmer is adorable!! I would prefer to have just a little snow, mostly because of traffic issues trying to get to work each day.
