  1. Love it! I may stow away in your baggage for all those fancy, swanky vacays and trips you want to go on, just to warn you. 🙂 Also, I’ll go to the Kentucky Derby with you! I’ve always wanted to go and wear a shmancy sundress and big hat, because really, what does anyone else care about at that thing? The horse race?! HA! 😛
