by Tara Jones December 11, 2013

I feel so guilty already! My family doesn’t exactly have set holiday plans for Winter break like everybody else. Rather, we’re spending time bonding with each other because I feel like that’s something we can certainly improve on! The Christmas season isn’t about gifts and gluttony, food and folly. It’s about love. Thus, that’s what [...]

It’s Thanksgiving Not Christmas.

by Corie December 2, 2013

Thanksgiving break was much needed. I needed time with my family, time away from Clayton and time away from school. I did not go home for break, but I went to North County to spend time with all my extended family. My parents are the odd balls that are still in Illinois. I love Thanksgiving. [...]

Happy Thanks-Black Friday Shopping!!

by Jennie December 2, 2013

Each bringing around 3 if not more dishes too share. We all ate, talked, and the guys watched football. That is my traditional Thanksgiving. I have never been Black Friday [...]

Food With Love

by Holly November 25, 2013

So several months ago, I joined this program with Goodies.co and Food With Love. Every month, for about $7, they send you a box of snacks. These are usually new products that are not yet sold in stores and they ask that you taste and review them. It’s fun! And honestly, the more I think [...]

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

by Tara Jones November 12, 2013

Hello, hello, hello! I hope all of you are doing well as you fight against catching the flu virus (or if you may have already gotten sick). I’ve been getting a bit busier with the school workload, as I’m sure all of us are! So, where do I do it? I personally like to go [...]

Remember Who You Are

by Isabella November 6, 2013

On my Facebook page, my cover photograph is a still shot of Simba looking at the sky after Mufasa’s starry figure has just left him. The last words he said to him were, “Remember Who You Are.” I think that recently, I have personally forgotten a lot of things that are important for me. In [...]
