It's not a name I would have picked for my kid, but than there is alot of stuff that Kim has done I would never do. Welcome to the world baby North West (insert eyes roll, head shake and comments here) rumor has it the middle name will be Donda. Go ahead say it 3 times without laughing and if you can good for you because I can't!
Have a great weekend!
I read this and laughed because I actually know people who pack like this:
A new British Travel Agency survey has found that men bring an average of 3 pairs of underwear for a week-long vacation, while women tend to bring at least 10. In the survey men say the reason they bring so less is they plan on doing laundry on vacation (That's Funny!) I know guys like this..they don't do laundry and on the flip side I also have friends who overpack and just throw them away so they don't have to bring them back..So I thought I'd ask..how many do you pack for your getaway and do you do the "throw away?"... Happy Summer Vacation everyone! --Allison
Just when you thought it was hard to find a good book? I guess Japan doesn't know about the Kindle or Nook. Crazy--Warning don't take the toddlers into these stores!--Have a Great Friday
Anybody else have days like this where you climb and climb and never get anywhere..On a side note, this would be hilarious to take those friends on who have had a few to many!
OMG..Charles Ramsey--A true American Class Act? Or Idiot? The idiot comment comes from the fact he has been offered news interviews, book deals, tabloid deals all for money which he has refused. There is no doubt he did a great thing a regular American citizen helping out where help was needed. Critics are calling him a idiot for not taking money for his good deed, they say the guy has been given the chance to "better his life" and he refuses. My thoughts...maybe he is happy with the life he has and for that the guy gets nothing but my respect!
Anyone else making summer plans or trying to get in the right mindset? I have my summer booked, now just waiting for summer or spring to actually get here, as we watched the snow fall this weekend thinking whoo hoo only got 9 inches, yesterday the country once again stopped no more facebooking snow pics and amounts, nope social media became the outlet for information on Boston.. I wonder how many more times and I wonder not IF but when tragedy will strike another event, another community and hoping it's not ours. It was a double dose of sadness yesterday for the community of New Town Conn. as the race was dedicated to them.
