Another quickie because Cheryl and I spent the day having fun -- we woke up and watched the Geoffrey Rush episode of Who Do You Think You Are?, then we went out for what was supposed to be a quick run to Torrid to check out the Star Wars leggings, but we ended up shopping at Target (which has Star Wars Halloween candy holders) and Kohl's (which has Avengers leggings and glitter Terp shirts) too! I forgot a shirt I had intended to exchange, but I have new fall shirts plus Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Steve Rogers, et al on my thighs.
