A few weeks ago I received an e-mail from David Rock, a rep for a product called Nandos Peri Peri Sauces. He was wondering if he could send me some of their products to try and then review. I took a look at their website and found out that Nandos is a company that manufacturers […]

Ella Meets Oreo

  We spent the entire afternoon outside yesterday enjoying the gorgeous warm weather. All of our neighbors came over to play, including my friend Kathy with her dog Oreo. Ella was so fascinated with Oreo. Every time they would get close to each other she would just squeal and giggle. It was really precious!
