They primarily get the hot lunch, because it's the "cool" thing to do, but they've figured out which items they like, which they can tolerate, and which they'd rather not eat. If it's something they don't want to eat, they've been struggling to come up with ideas for things that…

Save BIG on the Microsoft Surface Pro

This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

Canvas Factory

Canvas Factory If you are looking for a unique, meaningful holiday gift, I encourage you to visit Canvas Factory.

We enjoy visiting the White Mountains here in New Hampshire, and we took this picture a couple of years ago at one of the scenic overlooks. It's one of my favorite views, and with my three favorite kids…
