Stereotypes: 1. everyone will be wearing cowboy boots, 2. warm fall weather, 3. southern accents….. all proven WRONG!

This wouldn’t have even become a blog post if Netflix wasn’t so considerate…They created a … Continue reading Netflix Originals Addict
Who doesn’t love dinner?!! I do, and that’s why I decided to share with y’all my dinner menu for the week! I mapped out my four nights of cooking (if we’re being honest here, who cooks on Friday, Saturday and some Sunday nights??) I like variety, and making the same things all the time can get BORING! I’m such an amateur when it comes to … Continue reading What’s For Dinner?
