Suburbanette is Newsworthy!

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

The last time I was quoted in the newspaper, I was being interviewed by the Centre View (Centreville’s finest publication) for being a part of a test group of kids who were trying out new healthy lunch options for Fairfax County Public Schools.  Remember those awesome teriyaki chicken nugget lunches?  You can thank me for […]

Salsa Bar Date Night

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

Feeling a bit saucy, Rob and I decided to go to a salsa bar for our random Thursday night date. From the mild tomatillo to the hot-and-spicy chiltomate, these condiments did not disappoint!
