    I think one of these T-Shirts are the answer to my Christmas prayers of, “What do I buy my 22 year old possible soon to be sister in law?” Thanks to you and your sister!


  2. Oh I saw this on your sister's blog and I tagged it to come back to when I do my Christmas shopping! What great ideas.

    Thanks for the comment on my gratitude post! You ROCK (with all caps) too! And your blog and your comments ALWAYS make me smile and feel better, no matter what I have going on! My “A” day should have been for “Anna.” = )
