The Mom Vivant / Debbie Baldwin of Ladue News

October 27, 2012  |  No Comments  |  Share

By Debbie Baldwin It has been a strange week. Normally I write this column on a Thursday, a nice, relaxing day—no pressure.

The Mom Vivant / Debate watching parties

October 22, 2012  |  No Comments  |  Share

So, I was thinking I should write a column with a debate themed recipe for tonight's foreign policy debate when I hit google search to find some good ones. Then I thought the suggestions on there were so funny that I had to write a Mom Vivant about it instead. First of all, Barack Obama.com suggests a marshmallow throwing event...
