See you next week!

And from there, FOUR will win a $500 gift card to Target. If I win, a percentage of my winnings will go to the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida. So what do ya say?

You can vote for me once a day until May 17th. Tell your friends, family, dogs and cats. Let’s get Clumps of Mascara to the White Hou–errr, next round. Hit the image below to vote. Thanks for the support!
