Salad Bar!

Weird- I just started setting up my own salad bar at home. I fill all of my small Tupperwares with salad fix-in’s and fill up a huge bowl of chopped lettuce. Then I line them out along my counter and have at it. Sat down in front of my salad bar salad and almost didn’t eat it because I didn’t have the sunflower seeds. I’m not alone in this world.

True Love

Even though I’ve never met either one of them, Alison and David are my two best friends who married each other 😍

Just Terrible

I've been listening for eleven years and hated every minute of it. Does anyone know if there are other podcasts out there or is this it?
