Fit Friday: Athleta Hyper Focused sports bra review.

One of the toughest things to do when you’re active as a female is: finding a sports bra that not only does the job it’s been bought to do, but is comfortable too. If it’s not too tight, in the day and age of the 500-strap sports bra, it’s damn near impossible to get on, […]

Tasty Tuesday: Cinnamon Raisin muffins, uh, I mean bread.

I don’t even know who I am anymore. There. I said it. I baked. AGAIN. Like I said, I don’t know who I am. It all started with about a hundred of those little tiny raisin boxes floating around my son’s snack basket (he’s been a raisin fiend for the past month), and shifted one […]
