Party Favors? Balloons? Who needs them? Who forgot them? #thismom #awkward

I realize I’m late to the Game of Thrones game but I need a roadmap or a family tree or color-coded post it notes…

There’s no way that ya’ll completely understand what’s going on, right? Am I dumb? There are just so many costumes and snow storms and beheadings. Are we in the north? South? Is winter coming? Or going? I already spend most of my life in a […]

And as for me, I think I’m going to turn into one of those lunch brushers. You know the ones at your office. It’s always a tad awkward walking into the bathroom only to find a coworker flossing her back teeth.
Yep, that’s me. Judging you lunch brusher.

And just so you know, I’m also picking up some new pajamas from Layla Grayce.  Hey, they’re offering 15% off site wide through 11/8 with promo code HAPPYDAY.
