The Joys of Cooking for a Baby…

Matthew and I both love and live to eat and it is our hope to raise our children to enjoy food as much as we do.  With the combination of Bianca vomiting after every single meal, weighing in at only 20th percentile for her age group, and my inability to produce breast milk after the […]

Skin Care in Sunny Vegas

When it comes to skincare, I’m definitely on the lazier side.  Besides cleansing, moisturizing, and applying SPF in the morning, I really don’t do anything else.    I have had facials and microdermabrasions but I never see or feel any difference on my skin afterwards.
