Glad You Asked: Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, This weekend is by far my favorite part of the year. I'm not talking about Easter, I'm talking gonna Peeps, baby. You know. those slightly stale, gritty, sugary marshmallow globs? They're delicious. More than likely I'm gonna slam my weight in Peeps all weekend. That's right, I'm gonna Peep so damn hard. Anything going on this weekend besides extreme Peepin'?
