why can’t they fix her hair? a text from my sister sent last night summed it up nicely: 'i will kill her just so i don't have to look at the wasp's nest of her hair'
it looks terrible. every single day of her life.
and justin’s girlfriends’ hair looked like snookie from jersey shore styled it for her.
what was with the phone ringing eight times before she answered? almost too much suspense for me, chris harrison.
justin’s reaction was priceless. hobbling down steps, thru the bushes, and over the mountains. she should have called him out in iceland, on top of that lava mountain. then what would he have done?
i really liked his ed hardy sweatpants. can’t believe no one commented on them in any of the recaps i read! such douchebaggery. and the voicemails playing in the background were pure genius. rhyan asked if they were walking behind him playing the voicemails. ahhh rhy, that would have been a great idea. good riddance rated r, i really hope your wrestling career skyrockets.
ali commented about there being only a handful of guys left, and her being that much closer to finding out who her husband was. rhyan immediately said 'well, not crutch dude!!'
once again ali brought up the 'i have given up everything to be here' card. we are all aware and don’t really give a shit.
olive oil wrestling in the freezing cold? i think they should have had her wrestle those professional dudes and see how she liked it.
'they're oiled up like hulk hogan!' - kirk
oh, kirk. that body of his was like whoa. not gonna lie.
craig. i liked him so, and he made that competition his bitch! all heart, which proved heart can win over muslces sometimes. [rare, but it happens] it’s a shame there wasn’t any chemistry, because he really was a stellar guy.
frank. what was with the rug? i’m all about buying souveniers and such, but a rug?! i thought it was pretty sexy the way he had it slung over his shoulder as they walked thru the dark pathway to dinner. rhyan and i both said at the same time, 'they're eating in the water?!'
i don’t like his thumb ring. and i don’t like the fact that he almost cried while sharing his emotions with ali. that wine must be very strong. or they drank a ton of it.
that about wraps it up for this week. i didn’t watch the 'coming up this season on the bachelorette' recap because my sis had warned me it contained spoilers.
can’t wait to see what next week has to offer.
more romance, more traveling to amazing destinations, and hopefully more drama.
while helping mom move her house this weekend, my brother showed us the mom/baby mice that he’s raising to feed his snakes. yes. snakes.
we just couldn’t help but fawn over them and how darn cute they were, and rhyan talked me into taking not one, but two babies home, along with their mama. they’re only a couple weeks old, so they’re still nursing.
we happened to have rhyan’s old hamster cage and all the bedding, food, accessories to house these baby mice and their mom …
i made sure to bathe them before bringing them home, and gosh, i just can’t get over how darn cute they are. [more pictures to come, i’m sure] they are so fun to watch, and rhy and i just sit and watch them constantly.
Just wanted to let you know that my thoughts are with you and your family. I hope your sister finds peace. My sister-in-law had a miscarriage last summer, just a week after she let everyone know she was pregnant. It was a horrible time for her and my family but she (thankfully) got pregnant again, and is due with a girl in November. I always try and find the positive side of things, so hopefully things will look up for your sister and family soon.
Thank you so much for your kind words, it truly means the world.
She’s had troubles in the past, but never was she this far along.
It just came as such a shock to all of us, and thinking of her and her husband having to go thru this [again] pains me so.
I know there’s always something good to take from situations, but this one just has me baffled.
We’ll get through this, and again, I appreciate you reaching out and sharing a story so close to your heart with me … thank you.
These are my footprints, so perfect and so small. These tiny footprints never touched the ground at all. Not one tiny footprint, for now I have wings. These tiny footprints were meant for other things. You will hear my tiny footprints, in the patter of the rain. Gentle drops like angel’s tears, of joy and not from pain. You will see my tiny footprints, in each butterflies’ lazy dance. I’ll let you know I’m with you, if you just give me the chance. You will see my tiny footprints, in the rustle of the leaves. I will whisper names into the wind, and call each one that grieves. Most of all, these tiny footprints, are found on Mommy and Daddy’s hearts. 'Cause even though I'm gone now, We’ll never truly part.
I found out this morning that my oldest sister lost her baby. A baby boy.
She was 18 weeks along, and everything was seemingly normal until a routine check up on Thursday found he had no heartbeat.
She already has two gorgeous little girls, this would have been her first boy.
I’m heartbroken for her and her husband. For our families. For the two girls who were so excited about having a little brother.
I just ask for your thoughts and prayers … for all of us. It’s never easy going through such a thing, and I just can’t help but think of what he would have looked like. What his name would have been. How he would have fit into our ever-growing family.
I can’t help but ask why. Why things like this happen.
And all I can ever come up with is …. heaven only knows.
it was this past saturday, and with all my running around and rhyan’s baseball game … i missed it! i’m so sad. i didn’t even realize it was going on.
growing up in this area, my family has been going to hog day every year for probably the past twenty. it’s a tradition like no other. i mean, it’s named after pig for goodness sake.
it’s a day full of activities, great food, great music … great times. there’s an old antique car show that attracts people from all over the state. my grandfather actually used to show his old ‘56 tarheel blue cadillac, which we thought was pretty darn special.
and bbq? ohhhhhh do they have some awesome bbq. this photo sums it up.
so sad i missed out. and now i’m craving bbq like nobody’s business.
