I have been on a search for knit shorts. I was & still am a little unsure about them on my 5-foot frame, but i have to say their comfort factor is undeniable! A little note to self: brush your hair! It was probably from the bitterly blowing winds, but still... If you don't have any plans of tonight go & see 'Blue Valentine.' I love movies that you can laugh really hard & cry even harder in.
