First lady Michelle Obama was spotted recently shopping at the Target in Alexandria, Va. Turns out that wasn't the first undercover trip Mrs. Obama has made during her time in the White House.

In a recent interview with the Today Show's Al Roker, she described some of her other secret outings - including a trip to Petco with first dog Bo. The First Lady says she's hardly ever recognized when she goes out on these kinds of trips.
