#latergram #Thanksgiving We had the BEST experience hosting 3 young Navy sailors for dinner. These ladies were so wonderful and it was our privilege to serve them for a change. Best wishes to them all, as they prepare to ship out for their first times.
Edit: I should note that I have no idea if the above link is accurate, but I am mostly reacting to the manipulative use of advertising for vaccinations and drugs. Information regarding them should be educational and not emotional. That’s all.
I'm not anti-vaccine, but I'm definitely not giving Remy all of them that are available to her. Before you go thinking, “bad mom” or worse, “alternative health freak!” (haha), read the link. Then, reflect on all the “Have you suffered ______ while on _____ drug? If so, you might be entitled to a settlement…” advertisements from local lawyers.
Just because you can try and prevent something with a shot doesn’t always mean you should get the shot. If you read the link I’ve posted, you’ll see the risks for HPV and the side effects aren’t necessarily equally yoked.
This should go without saying, but you should weigh the risks of getting the issue/disease with the risks of the actual vaccine. This takes research on your part; by looking at data. Note: data is not necessarily present on the pamphlet your doctor gives you. You have to look up studies and seek out third party reports on these things.
What frustrated me so much (when they were coming out) was that these ads were targeted to young girls, and of course to their terrified mothers who would insist on them having the shots. And now, the truth comes out. Death, paralysis??? Simply because a mere 2% of all HPV cases don’t self-resolve, the company twists the data in an ad to sell their drug to little girls who don’t need it. Wake up. Medicine is about money these days. Yes, it can do miraculous things and has extended our life spans, but only when it is really needed.

So, my Rob Pattinson posts have dwindled despicably over the last 12 months. Not only have the posts gone down, but I have not the slightest idea as to what he’s been up to. Sam knows that I don’t love Robert, I love Sam. Sam also knows that despite finding Mr. Pattinson to be one of the most beautiful creatures to ever walk the earth, I am not attracted to him. Even if I was single, I know we wouldn’t be compatible and thus, it negates any would-be attraction. What we, er, I have for Robert is more of a simple interest to keep tabs on him. To which end I have failed miserably.
While Googling Mr. Pattinson this morning, imagine my utter shock to learn that he was possibly dating Sean Penn’s daughter, Dylan…and has also been linked to a few others, including Michelle Rodriguez??? Confusing, to say the least. And now he’s circling back to Kristen for a third time?! This. Is. Not. Good. I’ve got to do better.
Here is some recent photographic evidence that Rob forgives us all.
My friend Haleigh is engaged to Brandon Taft, the front man for this seriously talented group. They are touring in Europe right now with Imagine Dragons. Good things are coming their way; for reals! Good stuff. Watch and listen!!
My @sonnetjames dress came today! Ahhhh….I don’t know how you designed something to fit so many body types. Seriously, the Marni dress is amazing! Thank you Whitney! About to throw on a fur vest and hit up the playground. #playdress
