    Mother’s Day 2018 Gift Guide

    Pretty sure this is my first Mother’s Day as a full-time blogger. Aside from that being completely awesome and a huge accomplishment in itself, it’s also probably why I waited till Mother’s Day in Mexico to write my Mother’s Day Gift Guide.

    There’s this really weird look I get when I tell people I’m still friends with my ex, or as I like to call him, My Baby Daddy (side note: he calls me Baby Momma). It’s a bit like a deer in headlights or that I’m about to say “JUST KIDDING” and walk away. But it’s actually the truth. We are…
