When Darcy and I met I had a goatee. As a wedding gift to her I went clean shaven. In the 5 years since I have gone back and forth. It’s a pain to grow it back out because I have to look scruffy for several days before it looks decent to
You know I love peanut butter, right? Some of you know this. I love it so much I ate more than 15lbs of it while pregnant! Can you believe that? It’s seriously one food I couldn’t live without. Previously when I reviewed the coconut oil from Tropical Traditions, I shared the breakfast
