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 https://wimpygirl.com/holiday-wardrobe-malfunction

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: https://wimpygirl.com/wimpy-girl-barbie
It will be an exciting trip down memory lane.
