Kale Creeper

Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday! Here’s hoping today is a thousand times better than yesterday 🙂 It was so fun to hear your money-saving food tips and comforting to know that many of you spend a ton of money on food, too. The way I feel about it is that food is an investment in your […]

When it’s too much

Hey guys! Happy almost-Friday! Hope your day is off to a great start <3 Last night, after getting back to Vtown, the pilot had to head to work (laaaaaame, haha) and I went and got some groceries, as our fridge was looking a little sad. Snackage: After chilling around the casa and starting the laundry […]
