OK, I have had a couple of good chuckles now. Kelly, you can't win as you WROTE the stuff! Abby- you get something because I love Rolos. Jazzymamma, you get something because you like to save money, especially on discount candy. And Shanna, you made me laugh. Write to our email address and tell me what you want. I am feeling the love tonight and want you to smile. Who knows, I may feel generous all weekend. Thanks girls for getting this going!
