Bring Something Fancy… like Jello!

You know you’ll be attending a very kid friendly event when the hostess asks you to bring something fancy, and by fancy she means jello. My college roommate, Mikki, invited us over to their house in Lee’s Summit to watch the K-State/Rutgers bowl game last night. When I spoke with her earlier in the week, […]

She’s […]
