Tango & James and Milkshakes & Free Willy

My absolutely favorite thing about blogging is that it has introduced me to a group of people (including you!) who are so smart and talented and awesome that if I were to hit the lottery tomorrow my first order of business would be to fly them all to Portland and take them out for Burgerville pumpkin milkshakes. Then we would braid each other's hair and watch Free Willy, and all my smart, talented, awesome new friends would be like, "Ummm...why did we come here, again?"

So anyway, one of these awesome blogging friends is the lovely Lisa from Ninaribena Makes... I've been slightly obsessed with her since she perfectly recreated an iconic Carrie Bradshaw shirt, and now I'm lucky enough to have her fabulous Etsy shop, Tango & James, as a Daddy Likey sponsor.

I just adore her selection of funky handmade accessories and housewares:



I'd wear these to our upcoming pumpkin milkshake party. Delicious.

p.s. I wanted to apologize ahead of time if posting is a bit light around here for the next week or so: Besides Halloween and a friend's birthday festivities, I'm prepping for my book launch party next Thursday, which you should totally come to if you can! Feel free to email me for more info!

Just thought you should know that I ordered your book from Amazon Monday, got it yesterday evening, and am now about 5/7 done with it. I was trying to explain to my boyfriend, who also reads a lot of blogs, except not fashiony ones, that it was like reading a book one of my friends had written. Thankfully, he understood what I meant. I love your blog and I love your book!

I am such a good french braider, but not as good as my mom...she was my Girl Scout troop leader back in the day when that was all the rage, and one time on a camping trip, she french braided 36 girls' hair. That was one of her most impressive hair feats, and she's had many. 13 years later, she still tells that story, and so do I.

I swear, I'm going to come visit you in Portland.

Christina said...

Wow, she really is talented! That SATC shirt looks perfect.

Lady Smaggle said...

Oh cool! I LOVE Nina... we're old Canberra buddies! Interwebs be so small these days...

Kindrew said...

I know what Imma do tonight. Pray that you win the lottery so I can get a free vacation to Portland, a milkshake and my hair tickled... as promised by you!

Love yer blog!
