    Complete ridiculous and hilarious! I hope I get some input when my sister send her birth announcements and I’ll be borrowing one of these ideas.

    Mine would be #7… My baby is adorable, but couldn’t he have looked at least a *little* like my side of the family????

    Number 6 is ours for sure. That was actually our conversation on the way home from the hospital and following the massive meltdown the kid had after walking in the front door. Apparently he didn’t like our house at first?

    Please do not assume that a person with acne is “dirty”.
    If you choose to use acne home-made treatments you’ll be taking the first step
    towards being in charge of your diet. Let’s face it, acne products aren’t cheap and they
    aren’t something you use one time either.
