LO Fruit Beverage

So, sometimes as a blogger, I receive requests from companies to send me products with the expectation that if I like them, I will include them in a blog post I am working on. Most of the time I just delete those emails because let’s face it, I get offered a lot of junk. Other [...]

10 Reasons I Secretly Wish I had a Daughter by @Mommys_Busy

My husband, Chris, isn’t a very communicative person. While I am a total chatty Cathy, Chris is more quiet and reserved – even with me after 12 years of being together.

I have my Facebook set up to notify me when someone wants to tag me in a photo or status, mostly avoid those embarrassing family photos or incredibly inappropriate party pics. So nothing ever appears on my Facebook wall unless I approve it and it’s pretty awesome. Last night, I received a notification that a friend tagged [...]
