Soccer is a Way of Life #PassTheLove

passthelove

I was paid by Mondelēz International for this post. All love for soccer is my own and my family’s(I’m pretty sure soccer was mentioned in my wedding vows).  Soccer is more than just a sport- it’s a way of life. It’s my family’s way of life. I’m not kidding about that whole soccer being in […]

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Brummel & Brown. If I take our family’s favorite carrot cake recipe, which is full of fruits and veggies, bake it in muffin tins and leave off the frosting… that’s breakfast, right?

Red has to be Liz’s father even though he says he’s not: you think this too, right? And I can’t be the only one who sort of wants to punch Fitz. Or watches a show as much for the music as the drama. (“The Blacklist,” “Scandal,” and “Nashville” in case you didn’t know) I’ll admit […]
