Back to School Snacks #DarePeanutFree {Giveaway}

Both my boys are in elementary school (or they will be, once the strike ends!) and my daughter is in daycare full-time, so that means there are three lunches to pack every weekday.

Sometimes You Just Need a Tummy Rub {Giveaway}

Usually after dinner I crave a little something sweet.

Confessions of a 1st Time Blood Donor

This is a little hard for me to admit, but I’ve never donated blood before and I don’t even have a good reason for not donating.  It was one of those things that I kept intending to do, but never got around to actually booking an appointment and doing it.  I’ve always been a generally anxious person, […]
