The wedding was great. The bride was gorgeous and I thought I looked lovely in my Igigi dress. No photos yet. I have one photo of my head (I know, I couldn't believe it either). I had asked someone to take a picture of Jeff and I but somehow that didn't happen in the rush to get pictures of the family and the kids.

It ends June 24 and the winner gets to pick from their selection of moisture wicking sleepwear. And of course it is easy to enter. Check the blog for details.

Their plus size section is easy to find and easy to shop. Everything is divided into categories or you can use their search feature to look for something specific -- and it actually works...
