This is what Kristin brings to work

Do all your husbands hate GSG?

Matthew texts me: Look, I’m drinking St. Patty’s Day Beer again! [Robyn aside: Hmm. Genius. Tell your husband that his green smoothie is a St. Patrick's Day beer.] Me: Niiiiice! Matthew: Does it ever crack you up that there are guys out there who used to eat bacon and eggs for breakfast, who now hold […]
