Baby Carrier For Tall Women?

I’m looking for a baby carrier that fits me. I’ve tried a front backpack and rear one in the past, but found they don’t fit right on my tall frame. With my upcoming adoption of a baby girl next month, I need some recommendations quickly. Our adoption agency highly recommends we purchase one, as it will help faciliate bonding. I’d even consider a sling. Please help! Leave your comments below.

Are you a Tall Chef?

One of my tall friends Jheri, told me about a new product invented by her friend Colleen, a 6’6″ tall woman. It’s a butcher block cutting board on legs. You place it on your counter and it helps you be more comfortable when cooking. If interested you can purchase this product here. Mention “colleenification” for a special.

Tall Women’s Used Tall Clothes Boutique

Today I can across a unique website called “No Heels Required“. This tall boutique was started by Kim, a 6″2” tall woman. She sells used tall clothes for women as well as shoes. If you would like to sell items you are not using, you can even upload a picture and sell your used tall clothing. There is a $3 fee, but I think it’s a brilliant idea!

Julie & Julia

Tonight was Friday night date night. We watched the movie “Julie & Julia”. I must say that I think my husband may have been a tad bit more excited to see this movie than I. He is the chef in the family and I am …. well, you could say that I tolerate cooking. I find it a necessary task for the survival of our family, but it doesn’t thrill me.
This movie was fantastic. I loved everything about it – minus them saying the “F” word one time. (I really hate when producers stoop that low!)
Did you know that Julia Childs was 6’2″ tall? I didn’t. I can’t imagine the struggle she must have had to find clothing. Anyway, the movie shows us how Julia Childs turns to learning how to cook French cuisine after she moves there with her husband – who works in the American Embassy. In the process she finds new meaning to her life and an incredible passion.
Julie, a modern day woman, decides to recreate all of Julia Child’s French recipes in a one year time frame and blog about them. In the process, she learns valuable life lessons and there are many parallels in their lives.
I recommend this movie. As a tall woman, there were many things she said that I identify with and love the way Julia Childs presented herself with grace and filled her life with happiness. I am even inspired to try French cooking.
And of course, we can home and ordered Julia Child’s cookbook “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” from Amazon.
