Some people live their whole lives never meeting their soul mate. But for those of us who love country music, that will never be the case, because on July 17, 1976, Luke Bryan and his cute tushie entered the world. The universe will never be the same.
For those of you who don’t know much about my future husband Luke, he’s famous for hits like “That’s My Kind Of Night,” “Crash My Party,” “All My Friends Say,” and the list goes on. Sure, his voice is one reason to love him, but there’s so much more to him than his catchy songs. Like his ass. And his dancing. And his wit. Anyway, I’ll let the GIFs do the talking. Keep reading »
These days, people seem impressed when they hear that someone has three kids: “Oh, wow, three!” If you come from an actually big family, this is nothing. Three is how many kids were in the house when a couple of your older siblings went off to college. Five, eight, even 10 kids? That’s a big family. >We both come from big families — Winona the oldest, Jess the youngest — so we know what we’re talking about. It wasn’t exactly like “Keeping Up The The Kardashians” or “The Brady Bunch,” but sometimes … it kind of was. After the jump, 11 things that we know to be true about big families.

This summer, I’ll have the pleasure of standing by my good girlfriend’s side as a trusty bridesmaid while she says “I do” to the man of her dreams. This isn’t my first time at the rodeo, though. I’ve been a bridesmaid several times before, responsible for holding the bride’s bouquet, helping to plan the bachelorette party, looking for lots of really lacy shit on Etsy, etc. I’m a pro. But along with your run-of-the-mill bridesmaid duties comes the waves of emotion that go hand-in-hand with the roller coaster of being a wedding wing woman.
If you’ve ever been a bridesmaid, this may seem familiar. If you haven’t, prepare yourself. Keep reading »
We might be a bit biased, but we think hyphenated last names are awesome. They’re more unique and egalitarian than a single last name, and trust us, they’re great conversation starters. The only problem? Some of the conversations they start are not particularly enjoyable. Yes, it is “a lot of letters.” Yes, our moms were feminists, WHAT OF IT?! And oh lord, don’t even get us started on trying to spell them out for people over the phone. Here are 14 signs your hyphenated last name — no matter how much you love it — is giving you a headache.

You don’t need to sell me on the idea that drag is deeply inspiring (see: my obsession with “RuPaul’s Drag Race”). It’s not just about the WOW effect of all the sequins on the catwalk, it’s about making gender performance, which falls outside of the traditional binary, palatable to a wider audience. Artist Saint Hoax attended his first drag show and was stuck by the sequins, yes, but also by how it takes the “exact effort to make a leader” that it does to make an iconic drag queen: a flamboyant name, a fierce persona, defining outfits, a personalized hairdo, a trademark feature and one hell of a PR team. In his piece, “War Drags You Out,” Saint Hoax went to work transforming the most controversial political leaders into iconic queens. In a statement on his website, Saint Hoax writes:
“A rush of images containing Hitler’s mustache, Bin laden’s headgear, Obama’s campaigns, Saddam’s narcism crossed through my mind. It got me thinking that behind every ‘great’ man, there’s a queen. Like drag queens, political/religious leaders are expected to entertain, perform and occasionally lip-sync a public speech. But unlike drag queens, the fame hungry leaders don’t know when to take their costumes off. ”
