One of the things that most excites about having a little girl, is that I will soon have a legit reason to go into Crewcuts (other than trying to squeeze myself into a girls XXL).

Movie review: Julie & Julia was wonderful! I don't want to tell you much, because I don't want to ruin it... but I did not want the movie to come to an end! It was good folks!
