***gift idea. After a long trip it is a great gift idea to write up snipits of your trip or memories and print them and give in a small frame to the person you visited.

Mindy, no kidding. my 60 year visiting teacher in nashville told me to buy it, she said i needed it. I loved her so she could say stuff like that to me.
it is from target, $12.00 and it is the best. but everytime i wear it I always thing everyone must be thinking , "Ya Right, you don't look like that"
who knows maybe I will take adavatage of all these medical miliatary benefits...

HANG ON! You found the best bra at Target for $12.00?! Please share!!!! I need one.

It sounds like you had a great trip. I love being at my parents' house. Loved the image of you doing your hair in your mom's bathroom. I do that too.

Sounds so fun!!! Post a picture of that frame--I would love to see it--so I can steal your ideas of course!!!!

I love it that you took pictures of all that historically significant stuff at your parents' house. Very cool.

I need a miracle bra to strap me down. I sometimes wonder if I should wrap myself up in an Ace bandage or something.
