Samoa Girl Scout Cookies

As you probably (or should) already know it is Girl Scout cookie season!! Jeff and I bought our first ones of the season a few weeks ago at a grocery story near my parent's house.

Valentine's Day Confessions of a Non-Chocoholic

"Freak." "That's unnatural." "Are you sure you're really a woman?" I've had all of these things said to me because of one simple fact -- I don't like chocolate. I know, you are shocked. I'm a woman. All women must love chocolate. It's written into our DNA or something, right? Wrong....more
