RIP Jonathan Crombie (aka Gilbert Blythe)

Guys, I'm sad.

Gilbert Blythe has died.

Well. Jonathan Crombie, the man who played him, has died. (You can read about it here.)

Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite movies. I watched it all the time as a kid. It always put a smile on my face.

When girls were flipping out over the pale, sparkling Edward Cullen, I'd be like, "No. Gilbert Blythe is the one I want."

Yes, I watched all the Anne movies. I was glad when Anne and Gilbert finally got together. Of course I knew they would: I read all the books. But watching it unfold on screen was wonderful. I'm so glad Anne forgave him.

I still watch the movies to this day. I hope one day my daughter will love them just as much as I do.

Thank you, Jonathan, for bringing the character of Gilbert alive. You played him so well. You made my heart swoon.

You will be missed.

Things That Annoy Me Thursday: The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge

"Tommy," I said. "You're a teenager. Please tell me you aren't going to do the Kylie Jenner lip challenge."

Tommy was like:

I continued: "I know you're into video games, but I didn't want to go up to your room and be surprised. Mommy's nerves couldn't take it."

Tommy blinked. "What's going on?"

I showed him this article and I showed him this picture:

He was like, "Why would anyone do that?"

I went, "Exactly. We've had the discussion to NEVER do anything those Kardashians do. Don't be a sheep. Don't follow along. Unless meeting John Krasinski at the end is promised."

Tommy went:

I decided to continue the lesson and showed Natalie. She laughed. "That looks funny!"

"No. It doesn't. Don't ever try it or your lips will fall off forever."

She answered, "No they won't."

Basically? I'm going to have to keep an eye on her when she goes online.

But don't do the challenge. Make sure your offspring aren't doing it either.

Unless you want them to look like this:

What Natalie Wore At Disney World

Some people have asked where I got the outfits that Natalie wore in the Disney World photos I shared.

Some asked if I made them. I laughed, because I cannot sew. I can barely craft, guys.

I got them all from Etsy! It's a site where I can easily drop $100 and not know what happened.  It's sort of like the Target of the Internet.

To help folks out, I decided to do a post where I share the exact link where you can purchase the dresses. Now, some of these dresses weren't exactly cheap--but I would sell stuff on eBay and turn around and buy an outfit. I did not buy everything at once. If I had, my husband would have given me this look:

(But to be fair, it's the same look I give HIM when he spends $79 on a new computer game.)

We hope to go to Disney World in 2017. I don't know if Natalie will wear special dresses then. I hope! But it might be her last time doing it.

Why must kids grow up?

1. Day One: Cinderella's Sundress by Theresafeller.

Day Two: Belle Top and Skirt by LexiPagesBowtique

Day Three: Chewbacca Dress by A Posh Pumpkin with matching headband (I requested it be made with sleeves because I wasn't sure about the weather.)

Day Four: Deluxe Anna Dress from The Disney Store

Last Day: Lilo Dress from A Posh Pumpkin (I don't see it listed, but if you message her she might be able to help out!)

Also on the last day, Natalie wore the "young Anna" dress by BITSnSCRAPS

When we left, she wore a Frozen outfit. If you are interested in the skirt, I can pass on an e-mail address. The person who makes it doesn't have a website. The shirt was from Kohls.

And for fun, Natalie got the Elsa and Anna dresses from the new Frozen Forever movie from The Disney Store and tried them on.

Happy shopping!
