Holiday Wardrobe Malfunction

My sweatpants (bless them) are my go-to “uniform” for this time of year. After all, ’tis the season to be comfortable, right? There is nothing like the holidays for coziness and comfort, comfortable settings, comfortable clothing, and comfort food. So, this week, in the spirit of the season, I’ve gotten comfortable. I’ve taken the week off and let my sweatpants be the guest blogger. You won’t want to miss my sweatpants Guide to Holiday Eating at

Eggs-Clusively Yours

I know how precious your time is. That’s why I’m so grateful that you choose to spend some of your time reading Wimpy Girl. I wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you.

As a small symbol of my appreciation, I’m sharing a BlabberTales story with you that I actually wrote over 20 years ago.  I hope it provides you with some inspiration for the season, from now through the new year. Enjoy, and thank you for reading Wimpy Girl.

Sucked In

For the month of August, I read only romance novels. It was Read a Romance Month, and I’m always up for a challenge, even if it gags me. I promised a report on how I survived the month, so here it is.

Heads up, I didn’t die of boredom. My toes aren’t permanently curled and I’m not pregnant.

Read how a month of listening to only steamy romance books went for me at:

Wimpy Girl Barbie

Barbie-mania is worldwide and everyone has an opinion about the new Barbie movie. I figured I needed to put my two cents worth into the mix because I was one of the very first Barbie doll owners. Barbie was created just for little Wimpy Girl, or so I thought back then. Don’t try to figure up how many years ago that was, just read:
It will be an exciting trip down memory lane.

Red Shoes

There is nothing that bespeaks independence and sassiness like a pair of red shoes, and every woman should own at least one pair.

My mother always had several, and when she gave me my first pair of sylish red silk high heels, I became a beliver in the power of red shoes. But, according to Mama, there are rules that accompany the wearing of red shoes. To this day, I’ve never broken one of them. Find out my mom’s red shoe regs at:

Shark Week

I shudder every time I think about swimming in ocean water where there might be a shark. So Shark Week is not something I celebrate.

My fear of sharks all started when I was 8 years old and on vacation in Freeport, Texas, with my grandparents. I’m gonna tell you all about it at:

And, if you are not as wimpy as me, enjoy Shark Week.

Make Some Waves

Are you a bikini beach babe?

I once was, sorta. Right now I’m stuck in beach babe purgatory as I pack for our upcoming trip to Vieques, Puerto Rico. Beach babe purgatory involves being stuck somewhere between a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model and a moo-moo mama that calls folks to dinner by blowing tinto a conch shell. If you can relate, check out my plan to bring back beach babe-ness no matter how old you are at:

Gogh, Wimpy Girl, Gogh

I’ve always had an art crush on Vincent Van Gogh. I like the weird ones, the more eccentric the better.

Talk Like Shakespeare

Did you know that Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564? Did you also know that he died on April 23, 1616? At least he was consistent.

Thus, April 23rd is Talk Like Shakespeare Day, and in his honor, that infamous bard Wimpy Girls has written an ode to everything Shakespearian and talking “purdy” like ole Will. It’s called “I Wanna Talk Like Shakespeare.” You won’t want to miss this one:

We Are Women

In the 1960s, which doesn’t really seem that long ago to me, women weren’t permitted to open a bank account, get a credit card, or serve on a jury. Wow! We have come a long way.
