January 2015

This post is sponsored by HP and Intel. I was so excited to experience working on-the-go with the HP and Intel Stream, a new kind of tablet with Intel Inside ®!  You see, I thought I was not a “tablet person.”  For a really long time, I resisted tablets because I thought they were redundant.  [...]


Old Wives Tales–Boy Or Girl?

Here’s a just for fun post.  With both of our kiddos, we didn’t find out whether we were having a boy or a girl until birth (here are all the reasons why!).  But I thought it would be fun to look back on my pregnancies with Henry and Claire and see if there was any [...]
