This post was sponsored by Starbucks in conjunction with Yummly. I have a confession. I love Starbucks iced coffee drinks. Not that this is particularly a bad thing. I mean, they are pretty darn delicious. However, with a new baby in tow, it’s not so easy to just hop around the corner every time I […]

Like many bloggers, I have been super annoyed with Facebook lately. As you may have heard, they changed their algorithm transforming the system into a “pay to play” network. This means whenever you like a page you won’t necessarily see all of that page’s posts show up in your news feed. I don’t know about […]
