Toyota RAV4

Toyota RAV4

Disclosure: I was given a Toyota RAV4 to drive around town, in order to do this review. No other compensation was received.  A few years ago I decided that I didn't really need an SUV anymore, and we moved down to a small car. I didn't regret that decision at all, until I needed to fit 3 car-seats in the backseat. It just won't work, I tried every single configuration to get the 2 booster seats, and a rear-facing car seat back there... nope. Enter my hero, Toyota, and their offer to let … [Read more...]

Dog DNA test- Wisdom Panel

Wisdom panel logo

  Two years ago we got the most adorable little puppy from a puppy rescue, and all that we knew about her was that they thought she was a "lab mix," and she was from New Mexico. I didn't think I would ever really care what different breeds made her who she is, but now, I really do care for some reason! I think it would be nice to know why she nips at my kids when they run, why she tries to grab me by the arm when she wants something, etc. and maybe those are things that are natural for … [Read more...]
