Johnson and Johnson Party

We just wanted to thank our friend Dana of Frugal in Virginia. She hosted a wonderful party sponsored by Johnson's body care. The party was to gather a group of gals and to fight hunger at the same time. We all brought food for a shelter and had fun socializing. We really love that Johnson and Johnson cares about the community and the people who live in it. It was a very nice evening and we appreciate the invite. Thank you again, Amee and Renae Here is a link so you too can try their new product ...
