Cruising Scottsdale's Streets in a 2013 KIA Soul

This past weekend, while attending Bloggy Boot Camp - Business Edition, I zipped along Scottsdale's streets in a brand new 2013 KIA Soul.

Our almost-8-month-old generally eats everything we do (in teeny, tiny bites). She's tried roasted bell peppers, lamb, salmon, smoothies, mangoes, cheeses, carrots, sweet potatoes, beans, enchiladas, spaghetti, and bananas. She enjoys these new foods perched in her table seat, looking around the table and swinging her feet. She even tries to join the conversation from […]

What We're Listening To [with Soundfreaq Sound Kick]
