Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. However, all views and opions are my own. My hair can drive me crazy! I've grown it long or cut it short.

Yes, I Sleep With A Ratty Old Elephant

This may not look like an elephant to you. However, I assure you it is. Perhaps it's a little worn out, but Portia still loves it. We bought this for Portia shortly after we brought her home.

Banana Bread With Chocolate Chips And Walnuts #Recipe

How often do you find a banana or two, browning on the kitchen counter. If your house is anything like mine, it happens on a regular basis. I'll buy a bunch when I'm out grocery shopping.
