Years ago, weddings tended to me more traditional. Couples typically had the same style of wedding that their parents had along with something old, something new, and something blue. Weddings have evolved quite a bit since the beginning, and these da

I believe I wrote a post about this same subject awhile
ago.. but I'm feeling the need to do it again. People annoy the ever loving
crap out of me on a daily basis. Ignorance just seems to flow from the mouths
of the majority of the human race and I find myself rolling my eyes numerous
times throughout the day because of it. Here are a few more examples.
Calling your significant other or your child your 'boo'.
Where did this come from? Are you pretending that you are a ghost and tryin [..]

My kids are 8 and 7 years old. They like to watch a variety
of movies including horror movies. As I was looking through our DVD collection,
I realized that we have plenty of movies that our kids would probably enjoy but
we can't/won't let them watch them because of the sex scenes in the movies.
There have been a few times that we attempted to watch a movie with the kids in
the room but have had to quickly turn it off because of a sex scene. It really
gets irritating. I mean, come on people, if a [..]

I'm the type of person that feels the need to make sure that someone knows when they are being an asshat. If I am treated rudely at a store or restaurant by an employee, I will either say something to them or talk to their manager about it. I've gotten in a few shouting matches with people in public because they were just being total twat waffles and they needed to know it! I can't stand people who are rude or out of line and I feel the need to tell them so!
I really hate it when I have to zip [..]

I'm sure the majority of my readers have already seen the newest cover of Time magazine that is causing so much controversy. I refuse to post it in my blog and if you have not seen it yet, it shows a mother with her 3 yr old son sucking on her nipple. I found the photo absolutely disgusting.
I don't care if mothers choose to breastfeed or bottle feed. I think it is everyone's own personal choice and no one should judge anyone else for their own personal parenting decisions. This magazine cover [..]

I recently heard that during job interviews, employers have been known to ask the interviewee to log into the Facebook account and let the employer view their private page. This has caused quite a debate on Facebook and most people agree with me that it is just plain wrong.
Yes, Facebook is a public social networking website but that is why there is the option of posting things as public or private. I have a sarcastic and crazy sense of humor. I post a lot of funny shit on Facebook. If I think [..]

I'm sure you all know one.. or maybe you ARE one? I'm talking about a text addict. Don't get me wrong, I love my cell phone and texting but after awhile, I get bored with texting. I can not sit for hours and hours texting. If I'm doing something important and my phone goes off, that text message can wait until I'm finished. When I'm driving, I don't text unless it's important.. but then I will call because it's easier to talk and drive than text and drive. It is not possible to have your eyes on [..]

I heard on the news the other day that there is a big trend going on right now with new mothers naming their kids after characters from The Hunger Games and Beyonce's brat Ivy Bleu (blue?). God you people make me sick!!
I'm all for kids having unique names. I mean, come on, when I was in college, I knew like 10 people who all had a kid named Aiden or Ayden or whatever other version they could come up with for the name. Why would you want your kid to have the same name as 10 other kids in his cl [..]

In the mornings, while the kids are getting ready for school, I usually watch Good Morning America. I don't watch much news during the day so this is kind of my way of catching up on things going on in the world. I remember a few months ago hearing about a model named Lauren Scruggs who was taking a ride on a small airplane and when she got out of the plane she turned around right into the blades of the propeller and lost a hand and an eye. Of course, at first I thought it was a horrible thing t [..]

Over achieving moms have been the subject of quite a few blog posts lately. What are over achieving moms? Well, these are the parents who spend thousands of dollars on their kids' first birthday party (which I always thought was stupid anyway.. the kid is 1 and has no idea wtf is going on!... save it til they are older and can enjoy it!). The ones that truly do treat their children as if they are a real Prince or Princess by spoiling them to the point of being sickening and disgusting. Some of t [..]

I love to shop, especially when I can find a good bargain on name brands that I am really wanting. I really enjoy being able to shop from the comfort of my home instead of going out and dealing with people in stores. I'm really a little anti-social and much prefer to spend time with myself than with strangers!
I was looking for some football cleats cheap for my son and searched online for the best price. An online friend suggested become.com. They have all sorts of name brand items for cheaper [..]

Ok, so if you are on Facebook, you can't really miss all of the bitching about the new timeline layout. Some people love it, others hate it. I personally like it. It's different and you can personalize it a little more than you could with the old layout. Come on though people, shut the fuck up! I'm sooo sick and tired of hearing people bitch and moan about how Facebook better not make them switch to the timeline or [..]

I'm sure by now, most of you have heard about the most recent school shooting in Ohio. Ohio is my home state so it hit close this time. I know that all of these school shootings are sad and a horrible thing, but part of me understands.
I understand what it's like to be teased and taunted. I know what it's like to hear the jokes being said behind my back as if I were deaf and couldn't hear them. I know what it's like to hear people laughing knowing that they are laughing at me. School was Hell f [..]

I roll my eyes every time someone posts on Facebook saying, "I hate being sick!". I always want to comment with, "does anyone ever LIKE being sick?". It's flu and cold season right now and there seems to be a lot of miserable souls these days including myself. I have a sinus infection that has been keeping me down for the last few days.
I have decided to make a list of exactly WHY being sick sucks ass and the worst things about being sick?

Guest post written by my buddy Brian WorkmanMy favorite thing to do, that I don't get to do very often, is spend a day at the beach. I love the smell of the salty air and the feeling of the breeze blowing my hair. It brings back memories of when I was a child and my parents used to take us there. We would all pile in dad's old trusty station wagon and head down to the public beach for a nice say trip. Now that life has become so busy, I rarely get time just to visit the beach anymore. My father [..]

Saturday night, my mom texted me asking if Whitney Houston was dead? I had been gone all day and didn't know anything about it. Then she texted back to tell me it was true and that she read it on one of the news websites. A little bit later, I logged onto Facebook and had literally 15 statuses on my news feed about her death, and it has been non stop ever since (it's now Monday night). Do people really care so much about a stranger???
Yes, Whitney was stunningly beautiful back in her day along [..]

I think most states have a leash law don't they? This means that if your dog is out of the house, it needs to either be in a secured fence or on a leash. Sooo, why is it that so many people just let their dogs run all over BFE?
I understand that some dogs like to escape and take off running. I had a dog when I was a kid that would sneak out and would be gone for hours. When that happens, it's an accident. I'm talking about people who deliberately let their dogs out free to roam wherever they wa [..]

We all love our kids (well, most of us anyway) and like to brag about them. We all think our children are the cutest, smartest, best kids in the whole entire world, don't we? One reason I don't really blog about my children very often is that I get tired of reading about everyone else's kids that I don't know, why would I expect anyone to care about MINE when they don't even know me in person or my kids??
When someone is talking about their baby, the thing I always hear the most is, "oh, li [..]

The internet has been abuzz about the government wanting to pretty much censor what we say or do on the internet. If they do this, they will be taking away our freedom of speech and the freedom to be who we really are and say what we really feel!!
Why do I hate censorship so much? Well, I don't like to be told what I can and cannot say, what I can and can not read, or what I can and can not listen to. Why should just one person or even a few people have the right to choose what is right and wro [..]

As some of you may know by now, I get annoyed very easily. No, I don't think I'm perfect, but I know that there are a lot of fucking idiots in this world that don't even deserve to share the same air as I breathe! There are certain sayings or words that just make me roll my eyes and think, "you f'n dumbass, just don't talk any more!" Here are a few examples:

Here we go with another marriage down the tubes after only a couple of weeks. Sinead O'Conner just ended her 18 day marriage. What the fuck? Is it all of the sudden cool to just marry anyone and then get divorced a few days later? Is it funny? Or are people just that fucking stupid?? If your marriage ends within a few days or even a few weeks, obviously shit was wrong BEFORE you got married and if you still got married, you are a dumbass and get what you deserve!

I absolutely despise the word "diva". I hate it when women call themselves a Diva, and I really hate it when people call their daughters a diva. The simple word "diva" annoys the shit out of me, and why do so many women choose to call themselves a diva? To me, a diva is someone who thinks she needs to wear 10 lbs of make up every day, has to have her hair "did" (that annoys me, too, btw) every week, her eyebrows have to be perfect, her clothing has to be perfect, her shoes have to be perfect, sh [..]
