May I call you Pumpkin, Honey, Baby, Doll, Love, Precious, Sweetie, Suga…? I just got home from North Carolina where I attended a little show. Those sweet nothings above – those were my petnames for the duration of my trip in NC. The women there were sooo warm and friendly. Gotta love that oh-so-sweet southern twang. The accent makes it [Read more >>]

My dad and grandparents [Read more >>]

The contest was named the “Make Our Ad” Contest. The Grand Prize Winner is receiving free CANDIQUIK for a year – yes, FREE (I need that deal)!

“What do all these things have in common!?” I’m about to tell you. But first, I didn’t really expect to be posting this kind of blog post, for… I dunno, a long time. A reallyyy long time. Anyway, what I mean to say is – my brother is still like… 12 years old in my head. It was just [Read more >>]
Warning, do not feed these to: small children, your dog, or yourself… if you are wishing to sleep soon. ESPRESSO CAKE BITES ohhh – mee – ohhh – myy I almost didn’t share these.
