What’s Sexy: Part Two


In just a couple of days, on May 22, you’ll see The Outside Lane featured on theNickelodeon Parents Connect Sexy Mama Boot Camp.  Leading up to that, I’d like to introduce you (and any new readers) to some things I think are sexy.

1.  My cousin, LynDee Walker, the award-winning journalist is sexy

LynDee Walker

LynDee is a fantastic writer, who is currently contributing articles on parenting to The Examiner.  You should read her work because she is smart, she is sincere, she is loving, and she is a lovely, lovely human being.  LynDee asked, specifically, that I link to her column about Mike and Laura Canahuati, and their baby Avery, who suffered from Spinal Muscular Atrophy.  Check it out, but grab a tissue first.

2.  Turning your hobby into a booming business is sexy

If you were a baby, you would want to wear fashions from Too Too Fabulous.

My friend, Cameron Stutzman, turned her crafty hobby into the too, too fabulous TOO TOO FABULOUS.  Shop her store for adorable baby and toddler clothes, mega hairbows, and exactly the kinds of shoes you’ll need to train up your favorite little future-shoe-diva.  Custom items at great prices.  You’ll love it!

3.  Sharing your knowledge is sexy

Julie Anne Rhodes is sexy.

I can’t say enough about Julie Anne Rhodes.  She is one of my feminine role models.  She is as comfortable in Versace as she is in her chef’s apron, and as willing to share tips about both.  Julie Anne’s Personal Chef Approach to cooking has made my kitchen life a cinch, and made me feel like a success at the same time.  You will definitely want to check out her site, and definitely want to join as a premium member.

She custom creates whole outfits like this Minnie Mouse number that would look adorable under any tree.

And her bows, beanies, and baby-fascinators are just too, too, too sweet to pass up.
