I want this dress for summertime. The fact that it's the "Gidget Dress" makes me want it more.
Mad Men is back and Peggy is still my favorite character. Joan's evolution as a mother surprises me. I knew they'd jump ahead in time with the first episode of the season, so much about the show's writing is satisfying. And Megan? Could grow on me...

Mr. G had playdates galore this weekend. He has also cleverly hidden his school pants in an act of protest. If he has nothing to wear, then he can return to Happyland Elementary or be home schooled, right? Right.
