    Bates 26: Do Not Attempt This at Home

    I remember Kelly being pretty open about her weight struggles in their old blog. Which I think is good I guess. However I imagine fundieland puts even more pressure on women to stay thin. There’s already enough pressure in mainstream US culture. It’s too bad more of us can’t accept our bodies more. I’m including myself in that statement.

    M is for Mama 3: B is for Baby Boy Born

    Are Bontragers a nice brand for anybody? They are awful and not exactly hiding it. Their sexism is worse than in many other families, they act with superiority and reinforce weird relationships and jerarchy between siblings. I think it's impossible that someone reads their blogs and hold a good opinion of them. And thank you for giving more awful information about them!
  4. Congratulations @CarrotCake! Have you picked a date?

    Maxwell 30: Buying a Vest Debt Free

    @daisyjane1234, which Camino do you want to hike? The Camino de Santiago or the Camino Real? Or another one? I first learned about the Camino Real in either geography or history class at school and the Camino de Santiago in my reading about the Basque region of Spain. Santiago de Compostela is not in the Basque Region, of course, but in Galicia. The camino does go through Basque country though.

    M is for Mama 3: B is for Baby Boy Born

    Why does she have a hate-on for Target? And, do we think she'll change her tune now that she knows she can scam them out of $5 tights?
  8. Hey!! Look!!! I learned to use the same filter Jill uses. I think I look a lot better in the second photo! Makes me look much younger, huh?
  9. I can only count three times we've seen Jill's face -- post-shower in the makeup video, in a beach pic and a pool pic. Little or no makeup, and a fairly natural expression. Other than that, what we've seen is hundreds of pictures of the various masks of glop she applies, and exaggerated pouts, eye-pops, grins and other bizarre mugging. I'm tired of those too -- I bet everyone other than Jill is tired of seeing those.

    John David and Abbie 7: Happiness Continues

    Ahhhhh Pixi books. We have them in Germany too. We had at least a hundred of them. My mum kept almost all of our old books and now we already have them- the babe isn’t even one. She seemed exceptionally happy to hand over two boxes full of Pixi books.

  12. Since I cannot tell anyone I know yet (we want to tell our parents first over Easter) and there are some wedding enthousiasts over here, I decided to start telling people I don’t know: I got engaged yesterday

    It would be a beautiful day if the pollen wasn't killing me by inches...worst pollen season in almost a decade!

      Where are you at?  I'm in the Atlanta area and pollen season is regularly a nightmare here.

    In some patriarchal circles, it would be seen as extra sooper dooper Godly for the wife to call her husband "sir" as a sign of respect for his leadership status. Perhaps Black Sheep can speak more specifically to Peter and Kelly's motivation, but my first guess would be that it's a way of showing off how Godly Kelly was. That poor woman was always being "shown off" to the less-holy Christians, IMO.

    Bates 26: Do Not Attempt This at Home

    I just saw Kelly as a model and I think it's great. There are so many things I hate about the Bates, but I give them props for including a larger-size model, and using their mom for it is pretty sweet. And I'm glad Kelly is comfortable admitting her size publicly. If these girls have to pop out baby after baby and least they have a role model saying it's okay if they don't also stay super thin.

    Jeezuz. Reading that again just put everything fluttering around back into one neat package. Zoo is a selfish, horrible, immature, nasty, nasty woman.

    Raquel Strikes Again

    Her many lists of things she demands out of boyfriends reveals how difficult it must be to be around her. Don't expect her to talk to you when she doesn't want to, but don't dare not answer the phone when she calls or not be able to drop everything the second she wants you. You must like all the things she likes and you can't like things she doesn't like. She can rant and rave at you but you can never express negative emotions around her. Having Raquel cut you out of her life probably means you are doing something right.

    Lori 65: The Demonic Agenda regarding Women

    The backlash from Lori's social media vaccine post must have really gotten under her skin because it's been quite awhile since she's written a blog post on a Saturday. Typical Lori. People were assalting her with the truth so she runs to her echo chamber where she can control the comments.

    Dillards 75: Keep the Food Out of the Bathroom

    I don't get it either. Now, if I hear "Citrus and Lemon," my impression of the brand is of wrinkle-prone fast-fashion designed for a very specific type - mommies on a budget who like boho hippie clothes but also want their clothes to be oversized for modesty purposes. It's not just because I dislike Jill as a person, either. I find Jinger pretty irritating lately, but she has great style (even though way different than my own). Jessa, Jinger and Jana seem like natural choices for paid influencer posts. Jill... for Campbell's soup, maybe, but not for fashion.

    I’ve commented in recent Botkin threads that they really seem to be flirting with the off grid prepper scene. From this story it sounds like they’ve always been invested in that stuff. eta: See this completely bananas lecture from the Botkinettes
  23. I don't have kids, but I work in early intervention. I caught myself calling my cat by one of the kids' names! Luckily, they opposite hasn't happened...yet... That would be mortifying!
