3 Big Reasons to Rethink Wearing Flip Flops

Last month while shopping in Target, I witnessed a lady totally eat it. I helped her stand up and she said she had "slipped" on the floor. I saw the whole thing. Unless, she meant tripped when she said slipped and her flip flop when she said the floor, she lied like a rug. After I witnessed that little incident, I decided I would write a post on flip flops. ...more

Banana Blueberry bread (Gluten-free)

Now that I’m back home in Winston, I suddenly feel like myself again. I’ve started running again (although, now I feel a bit incomplete without so much CrossFit in my life!) and I’ve suddently got the itch to bake on the weekends again.

It doesn't matter what type of diaper bag, high-tech stroller or lifestyle you still try to maintain: You have oatmeal in your hair and you are carrying around the tools needed to clean up someone else's poop. (Please stop deluding yourself - you just aren't cool now.) ...more

Daily Dot killed their comment section. I’ve read their post about it twice, and I still don’t really have a clear picture of why.
