Re: Is it common now to have a baby shower with every child?

haha yeah, there are people like that. I've gotten invitations where I've had to ask around to figure out who the person was and how I knew them. Relatives I've never met too. Which..I guess I understand in a way, I mean, we're related and all but..you're however old and we've *never* met, and I sho...

Re: Opposition to same sex marriage ruling

It's hard for someone brought up to believe X, and everyone around you tells you X is right and Y is wrong and God is only happy if X and if Y then you spend eternity in hell, to then turn around and say "hey, you know what, X can be right, but so can Y." I was brought up to believe X and ...

You know what... I'm 36 and with each passing day, it's less and less likely that I will have a child.

Re: Is it common now to have a baby shower with every child?

Nah. I guess I feel like we don't live back in the day where you got married really young and you had a trousseau of pillow cases and quilts that you'd been working on since you were old enough to hold a needle and thimble, when you got married and literally had nothing. I still have things of my Gr...

Re: 10 year high school reunion - how do I handle this?

I am of two minds on this. In the end, being *that* far away, I doubt I would go, even if I had a stellar relationship w/everyone in my class. That's a long way to go and sit and hang out w/people for a day. If I'm going that far I better get something out of it. Cool museum, amusement park, fishing...

Re: Opposition to same sex marriage ruling

Ugh, dangit, I'm going to thread jack and I'm sorry, but I have a question about Hobby Lobby. Does that mean they can pry into your personal life?

Re: Is it common now to have a baby shower with every child?

I think I'm just a bitch. I feel like weddings are seen as "eh, well, if it doesn't work out, a divorce is no big deal, just remarry", so then there's this free pass on it. Making a "mistake" doesn't, to *me*, qualify as requiring another shower. Just like w/kids, it's not really...

Re: Beauty Products You Are Loving...

This is really low-brow, but I'm loving Clumpcrusher by lashblast mascara, by Cover Girl. Easy on, easy off, and it stays on all day with no smudging. (I get the regular formula, which is advertised as being "water resistant," rather than the waterproof formula). It's a very basic mascara...

Re: Gays and Lesbians and wedding traditions ...

It's funny, the whole "don't see each other before the wedding thing"--around here, *everyone* sees their soon-to-be before the wedding b/c that's when pictures are done. If there's a "cocktail hour" (which there was at one of the weddings we went to Saturday), it's b/c the brida...

Re: Is it common now to have a baby shower with every child?

I don't have a lot of friends. More male than female, and they're mostly my age or older, so baby showers are pretty much done. One sort of family member had a baby last year and that's the extent of it other than two PS friends who had babies a few years ago. My lead teacher is due next week and I'...

Re: Beauty Products You Are Loving...

If you guys decide to try the cleansing water, buy it from Sephora (online or in store)... that way, you can return it if you don't care for it. :)) I'm glad I signed up for the flash shipping when I was looking for foundation a few months ago at Sephora. I want to get one of the little clarisonics...

Re: Beauty Products You Are Loving...

This looks interesting! Does it easily remove stubborn mascara? I have some brands of mascara (none of them are waterproof) that you have to scrub to remove, which is hard on lashes. I'm always looking for ways to easily remove eye makeup without potentially damaging my lashes. This is my HG eye ma...

I dunno, there's things we didn't do w/our wedding that were considered traditional. We didn't have "side" seating, for instance, the ushers-who were also my "man of honor" and "bridesman" just sat people wherever. I can see things turning into "oh well that's a st...

Monarda's pretty darn neat. We've got a super tall bright fuschia kind and then a shorter pinky purple. There's a more lavender color that we're going to add. Gaillardia/blanket flower is nice too. https://www.google.com/search?q=monarda&biw=1600&bih=900&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=...
