3. Which FRIENDS duo are you and your BFF?  Take this quiz and find out.

4. Another Hallmark Holiday is right around the corner.  Check out these cute cards you can send your friends and loved ones.

5. Love your curls. Having grown up with crazy, curly hair, and struggled to know how to tame/manage it, I wish I would have seen this great campaign as a kid.

6. Don’t judge. A great reminder that judging other parenting styles is absurd.

7. Love these winter, pregnancy layers.

8. Tater tots, tater tots, tater tots!!! Make your own with this recipe.
