Jordan Reid, still waiting for that second book to come out, has apparently hooked up with another blogger to start some kind of store. It’s called “glam | camp” and on their rambling, wtf filled About page, they say it’s “the kind of place that you go into hoping to find something for your best friend or your co-worker’s new baby, and then end up kind of wanting to buy everything for yourself”.
You’ve met us before: we’re the proprietors of that store down the alley who talk way too much, telling you stories about how those candles were hand-dipped by a guy who lives in the mountains and sustains himself on nothing but aloe leaves and whiskey, and then ask you to come hang at the cafe down the street and drink some coffee with us because really, we should probably be friends.
Because we all love THAT kind of store, where the owner won’t stfu and just let you pay for your artisan soaps and go home where there are people you actually do want to talk to. Delightful. Anyway the shop is apparently selling cactus stuff and overpriced etsy-esque home stuff and jewelry, including a necklace to repel internet trolls. It’s all very eh merchandise but at least she’s branching out from affiliate linked flooded posts about lip balm and purses. So there’s that.
Aunt Becky, of Mommy Wants Vodka and Band Back Together fame, is back with a new personal tragedy. After her claims of being attacked by phantom stalkers resulted in her being charged with filing false reports she continued to say she was in danger. Then she went sort of quiet for a while.
Now she’s back with new physical injuries.
A friend then updated all of Aunt Becky’s “pranksters” on The Facebook.
Becky is out of surgery, hasn’t spoken to the doctor yet but is doing ok other than being in agonizing pain. Keep her in your thoughts–she’s got a long road to recovery!
As of now there is no explanation as to how or why this happened.
Here’s a few meh news bits while the internets is being boring.
Camp Patton has set her blog private. It looks like her instagram is still up, and she says she has “shut it down for the time being” and is “just taking some safety precautions, hope to maybe be back one day”.
Fashion blahg fanpoodles are flipping out over Jane Aldridge’s new hair. Since the flaming mop was sort of her signature it will be interesting to see if she remains the recognizable Sea of Shoes icon that shot to pseudofame after going from dirty blonde to red all those years ago.
I assume everyone is out getting PSLs and curating photos of sweater wearing while throwing leaves in the air, because this is all I could dig up for now. Sort of a womp womp start to the week, eh?
oh my gosh i love them already. so much that the guy at the tack + feed store already knows me by name. I’ve been in there at least three times since i brought my girls home, asking the silliest questions.
The chickens apparently spent their first night running around in the yard because they tried to “wait for the chickens to figure out how to get back into their coop, because #chickennoobs”. She claims the “tack + feed” guy “told me i was a good chicken mom! that was cute”, even though she goes on to teehee:
newbie stupidity not cooping them from the get-go, and i know i’m making a mess of this, but having these ladies out back + worrying over them, bringing them bits of vegetables that the books say they should like + telling them how lovely i think they are… it feels nice.
There are no pics of these alleged chickens or their coop on her gram feed, though hams have reported she is posted them on her snapchat. Considering their record of pet ownership I wish these chickens luck.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this collection with you, and I am over-the-moon thrilled that Walmart will be launching it. The quality of the pieces is amazing, the prices are fantastic, and every single item is a reflection of the things I love in life.
The collection seems to be a lot of enamelware style stuff, mason jar glasses, and “rustic” wood handled kitchen tools which are all very trendy on The Pinterest Machine. The flatware and dinnerware is not really all that distinctive – I’ve seen similar stuff at Dollar Tree for years – but will probably sell like crazy with her rabid fanbase.
So, not really interesting news. But she’s still a blogger and it’s really slow this week, and since Marlboro Woman seems dead I figured some of you out there might want a chance to discuss ole Ree.
Veronica Partridge, the blogger who refuses to inspire lust in men with her yoga pants, is apparently being sued for cutting down some trees. Evidently she bought some property in Oregon, and according to the lawsuit proceeded to chop down six “ancient” juniper trees on someone else’s property in order to get “unobstructed views” of some mountains.
Nash kept about 20 acres of undeveloped land to the west of the property that she sold the Partridges. Some months after closing the sale, however, Nash was visiting her property when she discovered at least six large juniper trees had been cut…The Partridges didn’t ask Nash for permission — and the trees are clearly on Nash’s property, McGean said.
Her blog has now gone private. There is no word on what she was wearing while the trees were cut down.
Other conference goers were less than sympathetic.
This drama comes on the heels of Sam admitting he created an account on the hook up site Ashley Madison. His smugfaced admission video blames “fleshly desires” and “simple curiosity” while insisting that his wife and his Lord have forgiven him for his transgression because everyone is “sinful by nature”.
Natalie Holbrook, is what, celebrated her wedding anniversary yesterday by posting a moving love letter to the man who makes her lifestyle possible. Oh wait, no she didn’t – she posted a weird seal clapping statement about how much fun she’s going to have with the college boys.
The good news is that Brandon, Professor The Holbs at WSU, officially a cougar again (go cougs!), will training the brightest young minds this fall in the ways of the Excel spreadsheets, making me the official MILF of the accounting department. (Yes it does.) This means I get to practice my flirting skills on the youth of America again.
Which makes me a cougar, too! (Get it?)
Saying she’s “done been married twelve years” she goes on to tell the world that being a cougar and flirting with “the youth” is “[s]uch a bright spot on my horizon”. She concludes by wishing her husband a “Happy ambliversary!”
Well it’s finally Friday and I don’t know about you but it’s been a long, sweat and work filled week over here at Casa Fiestabritches. I actually planned on doing a different book this week; but to be honest, by the time I got home at noon I was just over all the braining I did the past 5 days. I mean my attention span is at nothing right now, hams. So I decided to do a lightweight old classic instead. So get out your eyeliner and coochie cutter denim shorts, because it’s time to read ‘Ramshackle Glam – The New Mom’s Haphazard Guide To (Almost) Having It All’ by Jordan Reid.
I felt my skin warming and the waves spraying and the wind kissing in a way I had never felt before, and it wasn’t long before I turned my back up to the sun so I could bury my face in my towel and cry…And then my new nudist friend Robert (who is somewhere around sixty years old and has an incredible ability to have a twenty minute conversation with a naked woman and not let his eyes wander once) photographed me using my iPhone…
Jenna ended her weekend of nudity by slamming drinks and writing code.
Hello again, pork people! It’s time for Friday Book Club, and have I got a snoozer for you. This week we are going to learn how to be photographers! Or at least the kind of photographer A Beautiful Mess thinks we should be. Get out your VSCO Cam and prepare to be amazed at the incredible knowledge contained within ‘A Beautiful Mess: Photo Idea Book’.
Not only is she “1/16 Jewish”, but she claimed her great-grandfather was “murdered for trying to save the Torah”. This is after she claimed during a 2008 during a trip to Auschwitz:
My mother’s side of the family has Jewish ancestors, and it is quite possible that many of them died in places like Auschwitz….We saw the names of people displayed on the wall who could possibly be related to us, and I got really excited about the opportunity to do some genealogy in Poland someday!
Since she was on the trip with her mother you’d think her mother would have told her, as they stood at the gate, all about this supposed great-grandfather. But whatever. Apparently “part Jewish” is the new “part Cherokee” because it seems like bloggers keep coming out to appropriate and/or align themselves with Jewish heritage.
…the Holbrooks are moving. Real fast like. Because that is my Brandon’s way. Advance notice is not something redheads seem to excel at much.
She now says she’s known for like ever but didn’t say anything so her husband could, I guess, quit his job on his own timeline.
Brandon’s had this offer in his back pocket for just over two months. As in, who knew I could keep a secret this long?!
Their apartment was put back on the market a week ago so I guess the big move is happening before August. But who cares about any of this??!! I want to see which fangirl moves into her omgloft and starts squeeing all over instagram about it, and what persona HNJ settles on once she’s out west. Maybe she’ll swap Anne Shirley for Caddie Woodlawn? Maybe she’ll go Katie Granju chicken farmer? What is she going to do with all those stress inducing rugs?
Am I really the only person who thinks this is the only interesting thing she has done in forever? It should at least be as fun to watch as Jordan Reid’s big move and new persona.
