Happy Weekend!

I know I haven’t been on Tumblr much this week (it’s been crazy; work has decided to extend my schedule at 8 months pregnant - because why not), but I’ll probably be out the rest of the weekend.

The Contrary clan is in town and we’re throwing a huge party (it’s been a year since we lost Grandma!Contrary, and since it was her tradition to throw a birthday party, we’ve decided to honor her memory with a 100th birthday party for her), so I’ll be occupied with that, and the general craziness that is the Contrary’s.

Everyone have a safe, happy, and awesome weekend!

Conversations with my mom:

Texts from mother Contrary:

Mom: "What time is the baby shower? And what day again?"

Me: ……………..

Me: "You mean the baby shower we’re throwing at your house?"

Me: ………………

Mom: "Yeah, that one. So when is it again?"

You will feel much better if you just give into your feelings… Especially when pregnant! It’s okay to hate someone!

Ugh. She is so mean. I’d never actually met a truly cruel mother before; I’d only read about them in books. Me and hubby are not sure if we want to let her around baby!Contrary at this point. She’s so volatile.

This is just disappointing on so many levels.

I know. What a wasted opportunity. Plus she was super duper rude.

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

Amy P. was recently on The Approval Matrix, and was asked about the difficulties the “modern man” face. 

Her response was perfect.

Pregnancy 101:

Regular Lazy: Realizing your underwear are on backwards because you got dressed in the dark, while still halfway lying in bed.

Pregnant Lazy: Saying, “f*** it, too late now,” and wearing them like that the rest of the day.

Yes!!!! You cannot have a get-together, in October, in cajun country and NOT serve gumbo. And my dad makes the best ever.

*Hugs* I’m so sorry you have to deal with that.

Thanks. :-( She actually called me from a different number (because she figured out that I call-blocked her) so that she could leave me a hateful message. I mean, seriously!? Who does that?

Apparently not even the power of call-block can stop my mother-in-law from ruining my night.

I feel sorry for her and not just because her name is Mahogany lol

Lol I know right? She acted like there was something wrong with me. As if no one has ever commented on her name before, I’m sure.

So today…

…I met a girl named “mahogany” and she didn’t get my Hunger Games reference.
