Goodies up for grabs

Have a handful of scrumptious Farmers’ Market kettle corn and answer a quick question for me, ok? [poll=2] Thanks! And now on to other things… Like toes!

D is for Dr. Pepper

In the Encyclopedia of Me, D is for Dr. Pepper – the only Doctor I’d willingly visit every day…  And that’s really all I need to say about that, isn’t it?  Mmmmmm. I have been a walking ball of stress all day.  I slept poorly last night, which I’m sure didn’t help, and when I […]
