  1. Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    Come on, you know we're all thinking the same thing. Who wants to nominate Jilly Bean?
  2. Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    One of my bizarre past careers was that I worked for a funeral home. We transported bodies all the time - auto, train and airplane. Pretty much if the person was taken care of at a funeral home, you just need the proper papers - not hard to have and then off you go. As bizarre as it seems it's pretty much like transporting a cat or dog across state lines - these days most vets will tell you to have a health certificate and a copy of their records when you do so. Also just an FYI on the humor side, caskets are transported on planes with the luggage, but they don't come down the luggage carosel - a vehicle will meet them at the plane after the luggage unload.

    Thank you all for info on the Instant Pots - definitely helped my decision on which one to get!!!! @HAPPYFATCHICK I'm laughing on this end - feeling a little guilty but I understand that you just can't make this stuff up.
  4. Michelle and JimBob aka J'Chelle and Boob

    Ah, thanks. I didn't realize there was an age for mission trips with these folks. I'm sure Jana is probably thrilled to stay home with only 2 kids, now if she can just keep Jill away, she should be able to sleep in and have some fun
  5. The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Wasn't that Smugger's excuse for Ashley Madison??? LOL. And yes, I now need brain bleach for thinking that Jeremy and Smugger could have anything in common. And Jeremy was in Laredo, far away from Jinger's family and his own family. So no tattletails if he did decide to "take the edge off" during his courtship.
  6. Michelle and JimBob aka J'Chelle and Boob

    Is Jana not in front of MOTY or is that someone else? When I try and zoom in the quality is so bad I can't tell
  7. Michelle and JimBob aka J'Chelle and Boob

    Cue Jilly Bean's breakdown. Derick is hitting finals and having to study all the time, TTH just emptied out and went to Honduras, Jessa isn't going to put up with her everyday, all day. She might want to invite Joy over, but she's probably helping Austin out, I don't see her going over to Smuggars and hanging out with Anna, Abbie and JD are newlyweds. What is she going to do for like the next 2 weeks or so with just her alone with her 2 kids????
  8. Trust me, between the depression and the anxiety issues, I would love to have a personal therapy dog - my cats would not. LOL. That being said I've seriously considered for a few years about learning and training in order to train service dogs for projects like Wounded Warriors and the like
  9. Maddie Brown: Seeking a One-Woman Man

    I recently stumbled upon a netflix show - just starting it's 6th season. It's called The Ranch and it stars Sam Elliot, along with a big chunk of the cast from that 70's show and occasionally appearances by Jim Beaver - aka Bobby Singer from Supernatural. If you like Sam Elliott - definitely watch it - the first few episodes were meh, but it definitely gets a lot better and the man is still super sexy.
  10. Ok first off, I am so outraged at their attempt to use their dogs as service animals. Yea, the dog that you fostered off on your mom while you were at school? Grrrr. I am livid. Where I live this has become a large problem with folks trying to bring all sorts of animals, not just dogs, into restaurants and grocery stores and such, so many of our local places have had to post signs about what constitutes a service animal and they'll make you leave if you puppy or ferret is on a leash and in your purse or what not without even a vest. Yes, I know you can buy the vest online but these folks don't even bother with that. 2nd - thank you all for your service. Both of my parents were Air Force. 3rd - yes I have mental health issues, but these girls post EVERYTHING about themselves #wearespecialsnowflakes that I can't imagine them not having posted about they have a therapy dog. And the fact that both of them now need one for a flight home at the same time? - yea right. But they don't seem to need one at coffee shops, yoga studios, soul cycle, brunch places? 4 - photos in Flagstaff with the fam - um, where are the dogs you insisted on bringing? 5 - I went down the rabbit hole of Mariah's blog. She states that she grew up on the West Coast. Um, wtf?? What coastline was there in Las Vegas and Utah??? She also uses that horrid, I haven't brushed my hair in a month, photo of her with the avocado toast as well as the armpit/plant yoga photo. I wonder if any of her siblings are laughing hysterically while texting her with, awesome photos of you! 6 - you are flying across the country for Thanksgiving. I get the fact that this is the first time you've been far away from home, but perhaps use that as a you and Aud's first thanksgiving at home and skype or facetime with your family and save the money on tickets and travel and then maybe try to fly home for Christmas. Do they spend anytime with Aud's family??? I learned that when I went to college, which was a 6.5 -7 hour drive in good traffic, never mind holiday traffic and it was brutal, and that was only 2 quick stops for gas and bathroom breaks. I had 1/2 day on Wednesday - arrive like 9 pm or later at my parents, be pulled out of bed super early to help set the table and help cook after being up past midnight helping with the ham and turkey, collapse thursday evening exhausted and then try to study on friday and saturday in between all the projects my dad wanted my help with. And then fight traffic all the way back. No, just no. 7 - does Aud work besides shilling LuLaNo? They are in Chicago, Heck I'd be waiting tables or seeing if I could get a barrista job and free coffee if that's all I could find. And when the hell does Mariah go to school??? With all of her postings, not one seems to be of at the library, or in front of one of the school buildings or such. She must be doing as well in class as Derick Dullard is at law school Ahem, Ranting is therapy.
  11. Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I'm curious what the company thought when they saw her photos. Hey bare feet! Sippy cup on the floor and dented pots behind her. Boxes and suitcases stacked behind her. Mustard cardigan over the shirt she's suppose to be selling! I bet their impressed. sarcasm font Plus she's shilling products from 2 different companies in the same post. No Jill, just no.
  12. The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Ok, I just really don't get that little church in the coffee shop pulling Jeremy up to preach to them. In the photo is looks like there's maybe 20-25 folks in the church. From the "preachers" I know, I'm guessing the church paid for Jeremy's travel expenses and from that kitchen perhaps one of the parishoners put them up while they were there. But I googled air fare from Laredo to Dallas and it was $366 per ticket on American. So that's $732. Add in, most likely a checked suitcase for the 3 of them and that's like what another $25 or so? So let's just say $750 just for travel and then if someone took them out to dinner or something? $750/25 means that everyone would need to pony up at least $30 for them to come. Wouldn't that money have been better spent in the community? Take the $750 and buy food for a local food bank or use it to buy toys for tots or buy gifts for seniors in nursing homes that don't have family or donate it to a local animal shelter???? It's one thing that bugs me about many of the churches my mom or my childhood friends were involved in. They didn't do anything for the community that they lived in.
  13. Mykelti

    As much as I was not a fan of hers as we went that wedding, I will give her props for losing weight, wish I could, and taking a photo that's set in a clean room. Hey Jill and Jessa Duggar - take note - made bed, vacuumed floor, etc, etc.
  14. Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I was 9 when we went to Oahu for a few weeks, stayed at the Air Force base while my dad did a medical/AF thing. It was amazing.
  15. Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    @Kbo LOVE Hawaii. I've been to Oahu, Kauhi, Maui, and the Big Island. I started doing air b and b there and saved tons of money. We get a place with a w/d so I can do laundry and wash out the swimsuits and such, plus a kitchen so we don't have to eat out for all the meals. That's been a life saver. If you go I had the weirdest advice before I went the first time, which was to go to Walmart. I can get gifts for the family there - like macadamia nuts and lots of stuff for 1/2 the price of the "touristy" shops. Ok folks - Instant Pots?? I'm considering putting one of my wish list. I have a slow cooker and an electric pressure cooker, but it looks like the instant pot also is a rice steamer and a yogurt maker - which I like. I was looking at one of the smaller ones since it's just two of us and then I could sell my pressure cooker possibly. Love it? Hate it? How fast is it really? What things do you make with it?
