I love my husband, but I absolutely hate buying gifts for him. Whether it be for his birthday, Christmas, our anniversary, or Valentine's Day, I always struggle with a gift that he'll enjoy. He's the type of man that when he needs or wants something, he'll just go get it, so it makes it really tough for his wife to find him something as a gift! 

Luckily for me and all of the other wives and girlfriends out there who struggle with what to buy for their man, Personalization Mall has a super fun Valentine's Day gift guide to help you get through the "what do I buy?!" woes!

Rich & Chocolatey Granola Bars

One of my favorite snacks to grab while I'm getting ready to leave the house, about to sit down and feed the baby, or even to eat just because, is a granola bar. Little Mister and I eat them up like crazy, but I always have such a hard time buying them. Not only is a box of granola bars a little on the pricey side, but they're packed full of ingredients that I can't read the name of. Shouldn't a granola bar be simple? Yep, and that's why I decided to try my hand at making them and we loved them so much, I couldn't wait to share the recipe with you!

3 Kid Things That I Cannot Stand

Being a parent for over 3 years now, I've come to realize that there are a handful of things that I really just can't stand, some of which my son absolutely loves. Ironic right? Aren't they supposed to be little mini you's who like and dislike everything the same as you? Evidently not. So what can't I stand? Read on my friend because one or all of these may be on your list too!

Paying It Forward and Why You Should Do It

When I first heard the term "Pay It Forward", I immediately fell in love with it. By nature, I am a pretty giving person - I truly feel joy at giving people gifts, being generous, and passing along things that I may not want or need anymore, to someone who can use it more. Although I have never been that person who has paid for the person behind me's Starbucks, I do always try to think of ways that I can give back or brighten someones day.

Paying It Forward is essential to the worlds well being. And I say that wholeheartedly. There's a lot of danger in the world these days and the media thrives on that.

13 Smut Books We Highly Recommend

One thing you may not know about me is that I am an avid reader. I have always loved to read but the passion really flourished over the course of the last five years or so. One little confession that I have is that my favorite genre of books are smut. Never heard of the term smut?! According to Urban Dictionary, smut is "yummy erotic fiction or art", but I really am not a fan of that definition. So I came up with my own that's closer to what I look for in a book.

Since it's a new year I figured it would be a good time to reintroduce myself and share my plans with the blog for 2015 with you!

Hi. I'm Alex.
