LOVE this!!!

Jamie said...

So, I feel like I just read about myself here. :) I too take fitting room pictures of everything. I too believe strongly in savings and own a giant Vera Bradley duffle in Java Blue. I always wait until the last minute to pack (case in point - I'm flying in less than 48 hours and haven't even thought about what to pack let alone started). I wash my hair entirely too often. I love teen tv, too - 90210 is a fave but so is Gossip Girl (so sad it's ending!). The 90s were awesome, so is chocolate, so is leopard print.

Nice to meet you! :) Have a wonderful vacation.

I would like to reply to all of these. These posts have been so fun today. I love the changing room pictures. Vera Bradley is one of my favorites for accessory and travel bags. I love the one about the bond between mothers and daughters. So true. And I of course believe in leopard print everything. I love my loafers, cardigan, and belt!

Amanda C. said...
