      Hi Faye,

      Sounds like I need a few of those wrinkle-free shirts in my life, STAT! The iron is my sworn enemy.

      Anywho, where will you be heading for vacay in November?

      • Faye says:

        Those shirts are a lifesaver. I’m so lazy I won’t buy any other kind. We have a housekeeper but I hate to waste her time with ironing too. Foxcroft is also a great brand for wrinkle-free — you can buy them onlien or at Nordstrom’s, and they go on sale there sometimes.

        I’m going to China and Hong Kong in November — very excited! I haven’t been there in years :).

        • Karen says:

          Thanks for the rec! I swear my number one requirement for clothes (besides hiding my muffin top) is that I don’t have to iron them.

          How so VERY COOL that you’re heading out to China and Hong Kong! Do you speak the language?

      Hi Kelly Jo,

      I’ve heard Denver is a great place to live. Have you lived there for long?

        Hey Karen,
        I’ve been out here 6+ years. Decided after a college spring break that I wanted to live in Denver someday, then got my chance and haven’t looked back. They have a fun saying here – “Move for the winters, stay for the summers.” Come visit and see what they mean :)

          I’d love to visit someday. I met a lady a few weeks ago who lives there who loves it! I’m not a big snow person though, LOL, but who knows… maybe someday I’ll fall in love with snowboarding!

          • kelly jo says:

            Luckily, snow in Denver isn’t that often (minus this past winter tho!) and melts within a day or two since we’re so sunny and fairly temperate (for January at least). And snowboarding, on a powder day, sure can feel like surfing!!
