Jessica Simpson Plans to Get Married Soon After Second Baby’s Birth

2013 promises to be doubly momentous for Jessica Simpson: The imminent birth of baby number two (a boy to join big sister Maxwell, nearly 13 months) — and a wedding! More than two years after Eric Johnson’s fall 2010 proposal, the Fashion Star mentor, 32, is at long last ready to wed, a source tells Us Weekly.

During her April 14 baby shower, Simpson “was telling friends she wanted to get married a few months after the baby is born,” the source reveals. Simpson and former NFL pro Johnson, 33, have had to cancel nuptials twice thanks to surprise pregnancy news. Thus, the source reveals, “Jessica said, ‘Let’s have this wedding already before I get pregnant with another one!’” (It will be the second marriage for both.)

Towards that end, the Weight Watchers spokeswoman — who packed on about 70 pounds with Maxwell — is already mindful about dropping post-baby pounds for the wedding. During pregnancy number two, the singer is getting help from a personal chef who cooks up calorie-conscious food at her new $11.5 million home in Hidden Hills, Calif.

“The chef is there all day,” a second insider says. “Jessica eats things like egg whites and sausage. It’s healthier.”


Blake Shelton to Miranda Lambert: ‘I Have Nothing to Hide From You’

Country power couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert aren’t daunted in their marriage, even when the peskiest of divorce rumors surface in the tabloids. You see, the couple has an open book policy in their marriage, and that honesty leaves no room for doubt or distrust.

Shelton opens up in his new cover issue of People, explaining that there are no secrets between him and his wife. ”[I tell Miranda], ‘I have nothing to hide from you,’” he admits. In fact, the ‘Sure Be Cool if You Did’ hitmaker spills that his key to making their marriage work is access to his telephone.

“That’s always been our policy,” he shares, adding that he tells her, “‘Here’s my phone. Go through it.’”

“That’s really the kind of trust we have,” Shelton continues. “There are no secrets. [I'll say,] ‘Go dig through my drawers or my computer if you feel like you need to.’ And that’s been a really good thing, because I don’t want her to ever have any doubts.”

The couple’s emotional performance of ‘Over You’ on ‘The Voice’ recently was a clear sign that the Shelton-Lambert household is built on solid ground — they have a mutual respect and love for each other.
Shelton, an Oklahoma native, teamed up with his wife on Wednesday for the ‘Healing in the Heartland’ special. The show, which was his brainchild, raised money for victims of the recent Moore, Okla. tornado.

review of the book Sherlock Holmes and The Needles Eye by Len Bailey

 **This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

I really enjoyed this book. I was skeptical at first but it got better as the book went on. This book answers 7 bible based questions people may be wondering and at the end tells you the answers and in a clear, concise answer so that it makes sense to people. And some of the questions I enjoyed and I am a bible reader and know alot about the bible so this book is for everyone and anyone. And the one main point that I enjoyed from the book is do not wage war against GOD. It makes a good point that GOD will always win and you can see that from many stories in the bible.

I enjoyed the question about why the woman who was supposed to be stoned for committing adultery and why Jesus let her go. Right before the woman was supposed to be stoned Jesus asked the pharisees this statement, "You without sin can cast the first stone." Yet the pharisees realized they had all at some point sinned so they walked away. The pharisees and scribes were actively sinning at the moment they were confronting Christ with the woman.  And when Jesus was saving the woman from being stoned, he wrote something on the ground with his finger.While the pharisees and teachers of the life were correct, that the woman was guilty of adultery and according to the law must be stoned but the scriptures show that it takes two. Her partner should be stoned as well. So Jesus had written the words, where's the man?.( most of this can be found on the pages 33-40).

I also enjoyed the story of David and Goliath and why David had gathered 5 stones to kill Goliath and why the 5 stones are important. I learned that four other giants stood in the Philistine ranks the day David slew Goliath.(You can read more about on page 133-134)Goliath had 4 brothers. He was more than willing to confront all 5 giants at once.

I also enjoyed the part on the wall of Jericho and why on the seventh day the Israelites changed what they had been doing. It made the troops of Jericho alarmed, you climb to the top of the walls to see what the Israelites are doing, expecting an attack from the other side, at the top the Israelites had climbed ontop with their spears to take the troops of Jericho out. And then after the sound of the trumpet, the walls crash down killing the troops of Jericho.

All in all I enjoyed this book because it kept me guessing on some of the answers and I learned alot and I also liked how the author kept all the details of the bible correct and didn't misconstrue any of the scriptures, like many other people do. I would recommend this anyone.

Jessica Simpson, Beyonce, and Jennifer Lopez Named on Most Powerful Working Moms List

Note to Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton: Better start lobbying now! Working Mother magazine announced its annual list of the 50 Most Powerful Working Moms on Monday, May 6, and not suprisingly, there are business execs and politicians galore on the impressive roster. But household names Jessica Simpson, Beyonce, and Jennifer Lopez also made the list, even cracking the top 10!

 “[This] group of American working moms screams power,” says Working Mother Media Editorial Director Jennifer Owens. “They absolutely have talent, influence, status, money and smarts, but they’ve also shown the strength to overcome great obstacles, the insight to innovate and inspire, and the passion to help better the lives of others.”

The soon-to-be-mom-of-two Simpson was cited for her lucrative fashion line and her role on Fashion Star. Lopez, mom to 5-year-old twins Emme and Max, was recognized for her musical achievements as well as her philanthropic side: The singer is co-chair of the Global Mom Relay, which helps bring greater medical access to mothers in the developing world. And Beyonce, “arguably the hardest working mom in show biz,” says the magazine, was honored for her non-stop work ethic; since the birth of Blue Ivy last year, she’s sung at President Obama’s second inauguration, performed a half-time show at the Super Bowl, embarked on a world tour, and…the list of achievements goes on and on.

Other entertainers who made the cut are Gwen Stefani, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tina Fey, Melissa McCarthy, and Angelina Jolie. Click here for the complete list.

Review of the book Duchess by Susan May Warren

I got to get this book for free to write my reviews on it. I am a team member of Susan May Warren on facebook. This is my review of the book.

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**
 I really enjoyed this book because of all the twists and turns and how I fell in love with the characters and couldn't figure how what was going to happen next. 

This story is about an actress who thought she was in love with this one guy she married but turns out she is really in love with a different guy. And this second guy was in love with her all this time too. They end up getting together in the end. The first guy ends up dying and before he does, she finds out he was in love with someone else too and had a baby with her. And the first guy ends up dying because he kills himself from all the stresses of life, I never saw that coming, that shocked me. The book is also dealing with the time period of the Nazi's and concentration camps and such. That hits home to me because of my religion as a Jehovah's witness. We dealt with similar situations. At concentration camps during that time people who were Jehovah's witnesses were given a purple triangle to wear on their chests. Some witnesses were even beaten for not saluting the flag at the camps since we do not salute the flag even then, even today. The only way the witnesses could get out of the camps was to renounce their faith, but they stayed strong and make Jehovah the only priority. Many witnesses during that time went without food and water and freezing temperatures in hopes of losing their faith, but they stayed strong. In 1948 more witnesses were being persecuted because of a communist regime in Poland. Because witnesses were determined to stay neutral and not fight, they were put into jail for a few years. (I got my most of my information for our Watchtower CD published by Jehovah's witnesses).

What I liked about the book was the use of bible scriptures and my favorite one about the meek inheriting the earth. I cannot wait until all the evil is taken off the earth and we can all peaceful and security and play with all the animals without worrying about the animals hurting us. That bible scripture even talks about that how kids can play with snakes and cannot get hurt, etc.“‘The wolf and the lamb themselves will feed as one, and the lion will eat straw just like the bull; and as for the serpent, his food will be dust. They will do no harm nor cause any ruin in all my holy mountain,’ Jehovah has said.” (Isaiah 65:25)

MiCHI Mall Nails

I am very much interested in trying these nails. And apparently they are having a facebook promotion where if you write an article about them on an active blog and give a link of your blog to them, you get a free thing of nails so lets get started.

I have never heard of this nail company before but they have some pretty cool nails. I like the sponge-bob ones and some of the other character ones. What I like about them is the different designs and colors. For example this pretty blue color I see in front of me is really pretty. Its like a spring color. I also really like the princess ones. They are a white background color with flowers on them.

I also think the water coloring nails are pretty too.

I think it looks fancier then other nails you put on. I think also their Disney nails are great as well, you can see them: you  can get like Donald duck on your nails.

I also like the ones with flowers and butterflies on them, I found a post with these nails back in January on there facebook page.

This is apparently a Japanese company that makes fake nails. You remove the double sided tape from the nail, place the nail on your finger, press down on nail to attach, and that's it. Looks easy and nice and I cannot wait to try them.

Lil Wayne suffers another seizure, says he's 'fine'

LOS ANGELES, May 1 (UPI) -- U.S. hip-hop recording artist Lil Wayne says he's "fine" after suffering another epileptic seizure and being briefly hospitalized in Los Angeles.

"I'm fine. Thank u," the "Lollipop" singer, who passed Elvis Presley in September as the male with the most entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

The performer was taken by his bodyguards to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Tuesday night and discharged Wednesday morning following treatment, the TMZ celebrity news website reported.

Tuesday's incident was the fourth health scare since October for Wayne, born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.

He suffered a reported seizure on his private jet bound for Los Angeles Oct. 25 and the jet made an unscheduled landing at an undisclosed Texas location. He was treated at a hospital and released.

The plane made another unscheduled landing the next day while flying from Texas to Los Angeles -- this time it stopped in Louisiana -- after Wayne suffered a second seizure and required further hospitalization.

He was reported by TMZ to have suffered several serious seizures in March and was treated at Cedars-Sinai's intensive care unit.

In a March 28 interview with radio station KPWR, Los Angeles, Wayne said he suffers from epilepsy, a chronic neurological disorder characterized by seizures.

"This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures," he said. "Y'all just never hear about them. But this time, it got real bad because I had three of them in a row."


A great blog
