Fearless Females Friday I met Tanya Rivera probably 4 years ago but I know she doesn’t remember that because I was just a fan girl bugging her at some event she was doing an appearance at.

Triad Bloggers and Camp Hanes When my friend Kelly over at Southern Fried Children gets a good idea, it’s usually worth taking note. And every now and then, it also includes me.
