    OK, I just have to share my excitement. I just ordered a brand new Brahmin bag and I can’t wait for it to arrive. It’s the one the woman is holding here: http://www.brahmin.com/handbags?collection=1515

    Happy Friday!

  2. My major take-away from the WSJ article is that, since wearing all of my clothing appears to carry the same risk level as bathing in a vat of flesh-eating microbes, I should become a nudist.

    • Salit-a-gator :

      Ha! Your comment made me smile. That article was fodder for the thought – who wears pants so tight that it interferes with their digestion? Craziness.

    • Tired Squared :

      Haha–I also read that one with a bit of a snicker… if you’re unable to breathe in your shapewear/belt, wouldn’t you realize it mid-breathe and then go up a size/belt loop?

      That said, nothing is going to make me give up my flip-flops!

      • Agreed on the flip-flops. I will wear my Rainbows until the day they cause my feet to literally fall off my ankles.
