Deck the halls... with office supplies? Why not! As someone who works at home, Staples has become one of my regular haunts.

The teenage years can be pretty interesting. Communication is always a thing. Like, could it be possible that adults and teens speak completely different languages?  It seems like it, I tell ya!

True story.  So many fun memories involving the sweet icy treat growing up.  We'd fight over who got the biggest bowl quite frequently. Now, mind you, I don't have any siblings.
