  1. Mountain Goats

    My Stepdad has a tattoo of Tweety bird, which may not sound all that funny, but knowing the type of guy he is makes it very humorous.

  2. White Denim

    I’m excited for the comeback of the 1920s women’s bathing suit (which hopefully will spring back to life after being worn by the Duggar family in ’18 Kids and Counting’).

    Also, frosted tips.

  3. When we were children, my sister and I used to regularly “run away from home.” In practice, this meant we grabbed the canoe, paddled across the tiny pond to our grandma’s house, and had a picnic in the woods for the afternoon.

    Also, we often took our dad along as we “ran away.”

    Now that I’ve grown up and moved away from home, my ideal place to run away to would still probably be the woods by grandma’s house.

  4. White Denim

    Acid-washed jeans or zooba pants…either one would be awesome for the end of the year.

  5. I’m totally digging the ’20’s bathing suit trend…though not so much on the Duggars.

    And Jenny, what a sweet story! Grandma’s house is the best, isn’t it?

    OK guys, contest is closed for this week. Check your e-mail to see if you’re a winner.
