My husband feels like he's coming down with the flu. I made a tray last night & forced some of these remedies on him this morning as well. Fingers crossed all of these preventative measures will fight it off! Headed to my 36 week check up! I took a picture of how much cheaper gas … Continue reading My Day Via iPhone Pictures
