Before I turn over the site to AUTONOMOUS author, Andy Marino, I have to give you all a little bit of my opinion on this book. First, I don’t typically read YA books but, considering we’re a little backed up with some amazing titles, I took one for the team and *I* actually read this one! Of course, I was…

I love history. It’s like an escape from reality except it’s… real.Or it was real. Now it’s.. history. When my girls come home from school and talk about what they’re learning in history (or memorizing…), it’s fun to engage with them and discuss the time eras that they’re learning about. Well, it’s fun for me… not so much for them. But,…

I honestly think it stems from my birthday being 8 days before Christmas and always getting the shaft. From “combined” birthday/Christmas gifts (if you have someone in your life with a December birthday, don’t do that to them. Ever.) to…

When my girls were little, it seemed I was always getting sucked into watching shows with them. Whether it was Blues Clues when the oldest was little, or Dora when the middle was little, or Wonder Pets when the youngest was little, every day brought some new wonderful moment of sugary sweet saccharine viewing. I’d never admit it to them,…

Reviewing Cave Tools Pigtail Food Flippers… Plus One!

Food and Drink, Latest, Reviews and Giveaways By July 4, 2017 Tags: , , , , 1 Comment

I love working with Cave Tools on product reviews because their grilling tools and accessories are great – they’re affordable and built to last and let’s be honest… I’m not the only person who forgets to bring their tools in when they’re done grilling. Who else pulls the food off the grill, shuts down the gas, goes inside to eat and completely…

13 Reasons Why… Not. According to a 20-Year-Old

Entertainment, Latest By April 23, 2017 Tags: , , , , 3 Comments

A note from Kristen:  I had the opportunity to get a sneak preview of the now insanely popular Netflix show, 13 Reasons Why and while I found it to be a great show with a lot of talking points for parents to have with their teens, the show has not been without criticism. Some parents feel that it sensationalizes suicide, while…
