Louie Is Going To Be a Daddy!




One Direction member, Louis Tomlinson and ex-girlfriend, a stylist, Briana Jungwirth are expecting a baby. Even though they aren't a couple anymore, they're still friends and are both very excited. Any other normal person would be saying, "Congrats, that's great" but I've noticed that the media, even some Directioners are being negative and freaking out. Come on now! It's a baby!! People are supposed to celebrate about having children. Sure, it was unplanned and Louie and Briana are young but they are both adults. We should respect their privacy and just be happy for them. 

Congrats Louie and Briana!!!

Happy 4th of July!



I hope that everyone had a fun 4th of July. I had a blast with my family. Even though I'm not a fan of the loud fireworks, I do know that it's a celebration of independence for this awesome country, to remember those who helped make this country a free one. Before the Declaration of Independence was even signed, John Adams envisioned fireworks as a part of the festivities. He wrote in a letter to his wife on July 3rd, 1776, 

"I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."
