Let's be real here: Valentine's Day isn't exactly topping anyone's favorite holiday list. The phrase "man-friendly Valentine's Day" may seem like an oxymoron. Some of you are probably thinking Valentine's Day isn't even a real holiday. Well, Halloween isn't...
If you’re like my husband and me, you know how tricky it is to manage a household budget with kids. We are very organized when it comes to planning and shopping for groceries, maintaining a stock of household items,...
Valentine’s Day. It’s a day for love and romance. A day for kisses and hugs, and wearing your heart on your sleeve. It’s a day when people to give big bouquets of flowers and giant boxes of chocolates to...
