Favorite Cleaning Product: Y'all. Whoever tiled our bathroom before we moved in didn't bother to seal the grout, so it was an actual health hazard. I've tried everything to get the mold off, and nothing worked until we brought the big guns out. This stuff may be it's own special kind of health hazard, but it worked WITHOUT ANY SCRUBBING. I'm a believer: RMR-86 Instant Mold Stain and Mildew Stain Remover

Subscription Box: FabFitFun
Tech: I bought an Apple Watch in the middle of a panic attack to see if I was in AFib (I was not), but I kept it because I really love it. And I love trying to close my rings every day because it's a goal and I love goals.
Lil Gadget: I am obsessed with my magnetic car mount.
