The Rundown – Just Stop It

Road Tested Reviews – Olympic Edition
  I absolutely love the Olympics! I don’t discriminate between summer or winter, I love it all. I especially love the background stories in the Olympic coverage, the unexpected winners, unexpected live feeds and all the humor.

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Barlean’s.  All opinions are my own. Happy Valentine’s Day! I kind of have mixed feelings about this “holiday”.  I love all the love things but it’s kind of overkill. I mean, chocolates, flowers, jewelry, and stuffed animals that say ‘Be Mine’ are cool if you are into […]
