Many of you know Girl Ninja and I honeymooned in Aruba. We delighted in 8 days of pure epic awesomeness. As great as the week was, there was one major thing that kept our week abroad from being perfect…. ME. Well, maybe it wasn’t so much me as it was my frugality. In my defense, […]

If I came home expecting to see Girl Ninja, but instead saw this guy, I’d probably be more freaked out… …but not by much. I’ve never liked the idea of giving another company permission to access […]
