(Newser) – You might have been wearing dark glasses, Michelle, but we saw you shopping at Target. What were you after? One of the two-for-one bikini bargains?

"It is not uncommon for the first lady to slip out to run an errand, eat at a local restaurant or otherwise enjoy the city outside the White House gates," said her spokeswoman.
