Or is that the content synopsis of most female bloggers?
Well, it must have been obvious to my friends at Influenster, because they really toyed with me and I can justifiably blame my January struggles on the January VoxBox.

In review fun though, the kids got creative and had me share some ideas with the interworld.
Kiddo's (10yr old) created a few combos, but primarily used his spread for his lunches.

Everyone's vote for the best pairing was something I forgot to photograph or recreate for fear of my waivering resistance. So I will just let your imagine drool with these notes:
