Seasons greetings Iggle Mass! The holiday season (pretty much October until the New Year) is a busy time indeed for the majority of us! Between work, school, a social life and preparing for the holidays, it can get a bit crazy! But I am back again (albeit a little bit later than usual) with the next dose of Iggle Idols! Two girls equals out to two posts, so be prepared for the first Iggle Idol whom other members are thankful for, Christina!
And P.S. I’m super duper over-the-top proud and excited that it didn’t even take two days to get two girls nominated! You Iggles rock!
