I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore! Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City, USA!)   Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

A  study by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) says maybe not:

How To Tell If The Queen Is So Over You

Ever go into a party with a "Ok, if I cough 3 times, get me out of there!" to a friend? My friends and I employ a "If I throw out a righteous hair wall, I'm done with that guy'" policy. (For those that don't know, a hair wall is casually letting all of your hair fall over the side of your face on which the guy is.  Sends a pretty clear "I'd rather stare into my own luscious locks than speak to you" vibe. Works every time.) Well, it shouldn't surprise us then that royalty have similar "signals".

10 Holiday Gifts Parents HATE When You Give Their Kids

Family Christmas just this past weekend. My uncle was explaining that his adult kids were attending a Christmas party at one of their friend's homes, who has a 2 year old. "I gave her the best present," he boasted. Something he referred to as "big popper" and sounded like every mother's worst nightmare, but made the little girl crazy with glee. So what are the presents parents really would rather you didn't give their kids? The bump.com has the scoop:
