Mighty Girl Finds Mighty Man

Maggie Mason, still around, has apparently been using her Camp Mighty-less summer wisely. It seems she went on a nice vacation and upon her return, felt it was finally time to break some news to the internets.

We’re just back from a family road trip. I say family, because a few months back Brad and I got engaged.

That’s pretty much it. She also said she and her son “like this guy” and posted it under her “mighty life list” whatever that is. I mean, at least she didn’t give us a 30 scroll snore fest with every detail of the proposal, but if you’re going to share the news at least give us more than one sentence. Oh well. So I guess…congrats?

CecilyK Is Now An Accountability Coach

Cecily Kellogg, doesn’t even need that Babble money, is adding a new “um…sure” listing to her resume – “accountability coach”.

For just $14.99 a week you can hire the stunningly successful at everything Ms. Kellogg to keep you accountable and teach you how to be productive.

This is so ludicrous the only thing I can even say about it is an eyeroll.

Cary Randolph Can Be A Founder

trackwut

Cary Randolph, classy Superstorm Sandy survivor, is now taking on her seventh or eighth persona in the last five years – she’s now a founder. It seems everyone’s favorite former fashion week reporter turned Brooklyn skate rat turned marathon runner turned Newport WASP turned Hamptons party girl turned New York socialite/Ralph Lauren editor has bought a domain for – excuse me, founded – something called “Track & Feel”.

The twitter bio for the newly founded website thing urges you to “sweat often & elegantly”, and its stream seems to be nothing but mentions of sports equipment, workout clothes, and informing the world they are doing yoga and running marathons. The website itself appears as if it’s attempting to be some knock off Into The Gloss lifestyle blog thing, but for exercise.

I don’t understand how people can call themselves a “founder” when all they’ve done is set up a tumblr and some social media accounts. Everyone is now a “founder” the same way everyone was an “editor” 5 years ago. You don’t have to actually accomplish anything; just buy a domain, slap a title on yourself, and boom, you’re important. I’m at the point where if I meet someone who says they are a “founder” or “editor” I just mentally roll my eyes and think “sure you are, sweetie, what’s your blogspot address?”

Sparkling Adventures Sets Off To Deliver Her Gayby

how not to sit on a plane

Sparkling Adventures, “nomadic mama”, has set off on her “big trip to the other side of the globe” where she is supposed to birth and hand off her “gayby”.

She and her children have emptied out their house bus and tossed everything not essential for a winter trip to Iceland.

When thinking about our trip to Europe, it’s hard to predict everything that we’ll need for life, learning and adventures…Essential items for the girls include their sleeping blankets, one favourite toy, swimming things, a few drawing/writing/reading materials and their kipis.

Saying her children are able to “sleep anywhere”, Sparkles anticipates “an excellent adventure overseas with very few emotional challenges”. Because giving up the baby you just gave birth to is neither emotional nor a challenge.

“Mormon In Manhattan” Rebrands, Internet Continues Not To Care

Natalie Hill, the “Broadway star” behind the yawn farm Mormon In Manhattan, is no longer in Manhattan. She has moved to Utah – though like Jessica Quirk all those years ago, she is claiming she will keep a pied-à-terre in NYC – and in a few weeks she will be marrying that guy she met 6 months ago.

Yes kids, after 10 years of husband hunting ole Natalie has finally bagged herself a man. She has spent the last few months bragging about moving to some swanky part of Salt Lake City and having multiple engagement and bridal showers and filling up her registry.

Of course nothing is real until a blogger makes their new life official on the internet with a rebrand.

lolnow

Mormon in Manhattan is becoming “Natalie Now“. Sure to be as fascinating as every other Mormon housewife blog, it is currently under “Rennovation”. So save the day, folks!

What’s that? You don’t care? Hey, slow news day, sorry.

Mommy Wants Vodka Back In Court And Nothing Really Happened

auntscheky

Aunt Becky, was going to try and do some kind of play on “Aunt Trainwrecky” here but can’t seem to make it work, was back in court today to deal with the charges claiming she filed false reports. After being charged with two felony counts, she continued to claim she was in physical danger as her fans poured money into a “protection fund”.

But it seems all that happened at court today was a “Pretrial Diversion Application“, with a new date set for October 15th.

In the majority of cases, offenders are diverted at the pre-charge stage. Participants who successfully complete the program will not be charged or, if charged, will have the charges against them dismissed; unsuccessful participants are returned for prosecution.

So basically it sounds like nothing is going to come of this. Womp.
