My husband's alter ego: Clinton Kelly

"Did you see what that lady was wearing?"

Now, I've heard that question come out of my daughters' mouths or even my own mouth many times, but yesterday afternoon, I heard it from the most unlikely source: my husband. I don't remember Jeff ever saying anything like that before.

So I asked him exactly what she was wearing that made him notice and make such an unusual comment. "She was wearing Ugg boots (I didn't know he even knew what Ugg boots were) and sweat pants rolled up above her knees." Then he said, "Just call me Clinton." I think Jeff's been around a house full of girls for too long.

Even though they can be rather inconsistent, I love watching Clinton and Stacy on "What Not to Wear." They really do have some great advice regarding looking age appropriate and wearing clothes that are flattering rather than revealing.

Locally, Rebecca Mielke looks at fashion at her website I'm glad she's interested and gifted in the area of clothes and fashion because I'm not! Check out her website so that one day you're not walking out of Walmart and causing the heads of normally fashion-dead husbands to turn and say, "Did you see what she was wearing?"


  1. Too funny! I just came from Walmart...the whole time I was there I kept hoping no one I knew would see me. It wasn't that I had on Uggs and sweatpants, It was that I didn't have my hair and makeup done! =] Poor Jeff. The girls and I love that show much to David's dismay. Thanks for the link!

  2. he hee. My hero has picked up alot of stuff from me too. The funniest thing, though, was when we were over at a relative's house - like last year! - and he excitedly pointed out to me that Clinton and Stacy were on TV. Somehow, while he obviously knew who they were, he had missed the fact that they had a TV show! lol
