Beth LOVES the Detroit Lions. (Lisa mostly watches football for the players...Hello, Tom Brady!)

Beth & Lisa are way too involved with Teen Book Series… Both have the complete Twilight & The Hunger Games series.

We're headed to the MACUL conference in Grand Rapids this March!! Are you?

Lisa's favorite children’s book is Strega Nona (Her Great Grandma is from Calabria, Italy).
