So why not add on to how behind I am by creating a Fall wish list of activities for me to do :).   Here it is:

Josie Fall 2012 Favorites

I will be the first to admit that I am not that cute when I come home from work and put on my lounge wear for the evening. This is what I look like:

So Josie lounge wear to the rescue!
