Hi Jaclyn! I loved your recent maxi dress post for tall women (I'm 5'10" and struggle with this and other hem issues a ton). I'm wondering if you have any recommendations for colorful maxi dresses or skirts. I'm going wine tasting in Napa for my birthday and am looking for something appropriate, fun, affordable (under $100) and most importantly long.
Hi Jaclyn! I love your blog and have been following you for a while but have never asked you a question. Anyway, I was wondering if you had any advice for one-piece swimsuits that don't look frumpy and also don't have ridiculous cut outs. I have very fair skin so I'm looking for something that is practical, cute, and reasonably priced (under $100). Thanks!
Last time I told you about Isobel’s love for Dips. We had some roast chicken the other night and Isobel was not really feeling it. She normally loves chicken. I was getting irritated (I knew she was hungry) so I finally reached a point of desperation. Dip Desperation. I went into the fridge and got the ranch dressing. I put a bit into the corner of her plate.
She smiled and looked up at me and in the creepiest, softest little voice said:
I want to talk a little more about Creepy Iz Voice. She will use it at the most random times and it’s always funny (and also weird, BUT! more funny). She lowers her voice about 5 octaves and lands somewhere in between Darth Vader and Christian Bale’s Batman voice.
Examples of where this has been used:
- "Hi Isobel!" "HI.”
- [Doc Mcstuffins Theme Song] “The doc is…IN.”
- "See ya! BYE.”
I don’t know where this came from, but I like it. I hope it sticks around for a while.
Iz has started saying “I love you” unprompted more often. She says it back to Brandon more though. I’m bitter about it.
The other night we were getting her ready for bed and I was going to put her down. I had her in jammies with her blanket and her book ready. Brandon says, “I love you Isobel!” to her. She says, “I love you. Dada.” He looks gleeful. I try to capitalize on this sweet moment by making it all about me.
"I love you!" I say to her. I kiss her cheek.
She looks up at me.
So cold. So, so cold.
