Rotisserie Chicken Tostada

Happy Taco Tuesday!! Or should I say Tostada Tuesday for the sake of this post? If you know me, you know Taco Bell is my ride or die. It’s one of the only fast food restaurants I need in my life (cough, I hate Mcdonald’s cough). I don’t think I could ever give it up. […]

Entertaining the Kids Inside & Outside the Home

These wintry days are killing me! I thought I had it bad when it was just me to worry about, but now I have two little people to keep warm and occupied all the live long day and it’s through this I know the true meaning of stir crazy. I am craving spring and summer weather […]
