Keep these coming. This was an age when one didn't count ones units or carbs. Great!

My kind of fierce fairy! Of course, I'd rather slip into a cosmo, diving for the, ummm... vodka!

Another great, Nancy!

Love it!

Oh....and what a FIERCE rivalry we have here in Chi-town these past 2 weekends with the White Sox and "the other team". : ) 2 crosstown classics in a row! I was a little afraid your team had shown the Sox a thng or 2 last weekend, until this weekend when the Sox smeared 'em. Revenge is SWEET.
