Picture Day? Nooooooo!!!

Last night my husband and I had a “business” cocktail party we needed to attend.  You know, the kind of cocktail party where you need a few drinks just to make it through.  I had a few more than a few drinks last night.  I think I crawled into bed around 1ish.  I looked at…
