'Chewbacca Mom' Tells The AWESOME Side Of The Story You Haven't Heard

If laughter is the best medicine, than the internet got a serious overdose last week. Texas stay-at-home mom Candace Payne donned her new Chewbacca mask in a Kohl's parking lot and sent herself and millions upon millions of Facebook users into hysterics.
