June 9, 2017

It’s been one week since my fitness update. And I feel amazing! Don’t get me wrong — things have not been perfect. Nope. In fact, I’ve barely been home to make dinner; I’ve been slacking on things around the house; and I’ve generally been a crazy person. But I feel amazing. In fact, I had […]

Plan The Perfect Birthday Party // Minions !

May 9, 2017
