Easy Guacamole Recipe

Easy Guacamole

I have been wanting salsa and guacamole all the time lately!  I easily go through a jar and a half every week just on my own (that sounds really gross, I know).  I love the idea of it being already made and just buying and eating it, but it is over $4 for a small package of it at the grocery store! This recipe is so much cheaper, fresh and [...]

Giant Kids Growth Chart Ruler

She started telling me about her family's new dinner tradition . . . while they are eating, they go around the table and each person shares something about their day that made them happy and something about their day that made them sad. Her little girl in elementary [...]
