Breast Cancer Awareness Products

October is breast cancer awareness month. We all know someone that has been affected by breast cancer. My aunt Faye died of breast cancer at the age of 50 and as a young girl watching her struggle, left a big impression on my life! She fought a courageous fight with a positive attitude.

We can make a difference this month by purchasing products that donate a portion of their proceeds back to breast cancer research.

Funny Halloween Costumes for Tall People

It’s time to start thinking about what you are going to wear for Halloween. Do you dress up? I do some years, but this year my four-year old daughter informed me rather forcefully that we are both going to be Princesses, so I am still working on that one.

I started thinking about how Halloween is the perfect time for us to have a little fun with our height. So today I present you some Funny Halloween Costumes for Tall People:

Tall Skeleton Leggings

where's waldo halloween costume

Where’s Waldo? – perfect for a tall guy.

Jolly Green Giant – I’ve been called this in the past. 🙂 or 🙁

As you can see, it was easier to come up with costumes for the tall guys. However, over at  ‘Love my Long Legs Blog’, Sheri has listed more ideas for Tall Women’s Halloween Costumes.

Which idea is your favorite? Also share with us in a comment below any other ideas you have.

EXPIRED: Exclusive 30% Discounts for Backpacks and Lunch Boxes

My kids start school  in about a month. The Summer has flown by and we have so much to do! Help me! I dread shopping for school supplies – with 5 kids it takes a lot of money!

Rewind! On the day that school let out for the Summer my 7 year old boy got in the car and loudly, yet seriously pronounced, “Mom, I’m not the kind of kid I was when I went to 1st grade. I know that I liked Rug Rats, but for next year I need a new back pack. I’m much more grown up now.”

Well, I wasn’t expecting that as the first words to come out of his mouth on the last day of school. More like “Wahoo, yippie, schools out, scream and shout.”  It appears he is growing up! I also noticed that the weight of everything they bring home on the last day was just too much for his cheap backpack and the straps and zipper were breaking. My son was frustrated trying to carry half of his stuff in his arms.

So, I can’t tell you how overjoyed I was when Lands’ End contacted me about giving my readers an exclusive discount on backpacks and lunch boxes. In the past, my older boys have used Lands’ End backpacks and they held up for several years.

Knowing that this exclusive sale was coming up, I have held off on purchasing new backpacks until now. But, I want to share this offer with you! You must click through this link to activate the discount. But the deal is only valid for 2 days and expires on 7/25. Plus, score free shipping on orders of $50 or more.

Here’s the lineup of the backpacks we will be purchasing for my 3 youngest kids. We will also be monogramming their names on them because it only costs around $6 more and will make sure that no one can steal their backpacks (especially if I decide to print their silly nicknames on them). Would I do that? Well maybe! {wink}

backpacks on sale

I know this post isn’t really related to tall clothing, but what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t share this deal with you? If you need to buy some backpacks, today’s the day!  Again, be sure and click here to activate the discount. Hurry, ends 7/25. Happy shopping!

Sleeping Bags for Tall People

It’s Summer and it’s time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. We love camping – but I’m not a rough-it kind of girl. Thankfully our Winnebago keeps me comfy enough and safe. I grew up as a farm girl and I feel like I’ve earned my right to camp in style.  Okay, I admit it I’m a wimp!

The only thing worse than rainy camping weather is climbing into a short sleeping bag. You have the struggle between straightening your legs and having half of your shoulders exposed, or bending your legs (if they all fit in the sides) to keep your neck and face warm.  So, I’m hear to offer you solutions so your feet don’t poke a hole out of the end of your sleeping bag.

 

Sleeping Bags in Longer Lengths:




Enjoy the outdoors! I hope you get to go somewhere fabulous. I would love to hear about your adventures.

Extra Long Twin Bedding

I’m sure there’s some tall people out there needing extra long mattresses. I don’t require one, but I do enjoy the extra space that our California King provides.  After all Mr. Tall tends to dream he is punching people. It’s quite frightening to get slugged in the middle of the night.

My 13 year old is growing like a weed and may need an extra long twin mattress soon. We don’t have the space for anything bigger than a twin.  I’ve been looking at options and thought I’d share them with you.
