Note from Becca and Cori Sue: Merry Christmas to us! We got a Baby Bitch! Introducing Amanda Jean, our fabulous intern who will be contributing to the Bitching throughout her final semester at Longwood University. She’ll be brunching with us and bopping around to various events, so if you see her, say hello. Here, she gives us the top Christmas Day brunches (just in case your turkey gets ruined in the oven).
