Back to School with Target, A Bullseye View

August 14, 2017

The Targetstyle team recently asked me a couple questions about their new Cat & Jack line for back to school. Read on!

And since cookies should be enjoyed by one and all, I’m including a GF option. You’re welcome. COWBOY COOKIES* This cookie is unbeatable and unstoppable.

Micro Scootering in Venice

July 11, 2017

Thankfully, I just joined the squad with my very own white Micro-Scooter. The kids actually love that I can finally keep up with them on our way to ice cream or the park. On the 4th of July morning, our scooter outing took us down to one…
