Puppy vs. Mirror Puppy. A battle of cuteness
What do you like in your coffee?
Does Pumpkin Pie Spice sound good to you? Yeah, it did to me too. But I guess on a Monday morning, the boxes look really similar. (And for the record...not a good taste)
The thing about cooking Turkeys is, you do it only once a year so Its easy to forget the finer points. This woman has worked at the Butterball Turkey Hotline for years and has pretty much heard it all.
Ariana Grande. Superstar. I'm glad she is finally getting a chance to shine! Her voice used to get hidden on Victorius. Her performance at the AMA's was defining. She's on peoples radar for sure now if she wasn't already.
TLC w/Lil Mama
Animals love music too. A joyful duet
