So Many Reasons To Be Thankful

November 16th, 2012 Amy diVittorio

Why AO Rafting is (way) Cooler than Congress

July 27th, 2012 Malina

Nothing is better than coffee.  Ask this pregnant lady who went cold-turkey because she doesn’t want to get the baby all hopped up or encourage more kicking of the bladder than is strictly necessary: nothing is better than coffee!  It smells so good…..it’s another way to eat high-fat dairy products.  It sets you up for […]

There’s […]
