Sans Sucre Baking Mixes {Sugar Free/No Sugar Added Desserts} Review & #Giveaway (Closed)

Sugar and carbs – the thing dreamy desserts are often full of. I’ve always had a sweet tooth which was not a good thing while I was pregnant. Gestational diabetes limited the sugar and carbs I could eat and drink each day until after Rissa was born.  I didn’t really try to

Sweat.  It may be summer, but that doesn’t mean you need to suffer from excessive perspiration.  This can be embarrassing for many people, but it is a very real thing.  Brian actually has this issue of excessive perspiration.  We knew it wasn’t normal because his armpits would get really sweaty while sitting


Thank You for Breastfeeding Me, Mom

My mother breastfed me for about 6 weeks.  I knew I’d been breastfed because my parents had told me that a few times throughout my life.  When I was younger, that embarrassed me for some reason.  It wasn’t until having my own daughter did I know any specifics of my nursing relationship
