“I think Colleen should start dating Jay from the Jay & Jack Show.”

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!  I hope everyone had a lovely, relaxing day.  I was able to lay out this morning to get some real color for the wedding.  It was 88 degrees today, so although I was only out for about an hour and a half, I got way more color than I was planning on, […]
