Exploring The Wilds

{by alicia} We're huge animal lovers here at Wander & Whine, so when I finagled some tickets to The Wilds, it was like Christmas and our birthdays rolled into one. I mean, an open-air safari tour to see rhinos, giraffes, big cats, and more? COUNT US IN. (Ignore the fact Alexis is petrified of jungle cats. More on that later.) (more…)

The BIA Parade of Homes

{by alexis} Since we moved into our house a year ago (a year!), I've been working hard to transform it from a house rented by lazy college students to a house lived in by adults.

So when Latherology, a local hair care company, approached us about trying their products, we were thrilled because their business[...]
