Will You Be a Frump Fighter? (and All About Meal Plans for Clothes)

I confess. I’ve spent far too much time in my closet lately. And I may have made one (or three) trips to Ross in the last few days. And I did invest in some new fancy-schmancy velvet hangers, too.

Empty Tomb Cake – An Easter Tradition
