Tune in - Our Favorite 90s TV

Must See TV (and Movies!): We Love the ’90s

I recently came across the tail-end of a documentary titled The ’90s: The Last Great Decade and I found myself reminiscing about all the amazing things that I couldn’t live without almost (cough, cough) years ago.

Kids Say The Darndest Things

Who else agrees that one of the best parts of parenting is listening to the crazy things our kids say? We’ve had our share of adorable mispronunciations when they were both little, but nowadays I’m obsessed with the little witty quips they contribute from the back seat.
