    I thought the cake in the back seat was a wedding card collector thingy like the old school wishing wells from the 70s, 80s, and my aunt's basement . Or maybe a cupcake stand if they didn't do a wedding cake.

    Good Girls

    I've kinda filled in the Ruby/Stan backstory for myself. No idea if I'm right but I'm from the rust belt and know lots of folks like them. Basically they worked good blue collar jobs at one of the big factories and were solidly middle class. With ruby's mom leaving her the house they even had a leg up (good school district, hopefully paid off, etc.) On their neighbors. And then the recessions hit. And the political maneuvering which seemed to put money in shareholders hands and left workers behind. The plants closed, the wars ramped up, and the housing market imploded. Likely Stan lost his good paying job with excellent medical insurance and couldn't find a comparable position. Maybe he always wanted to be a cop but stuck with his safe job because that's what folks in his family did and he had a kid with medical problems. (Seriously auto company provided health insurance used to be really good) . The bottom fell out for them like so many people in fly over country. And now we're here.

    THIS! Also why has no one lawyered up? I know lots of cops and they're the first ones to tell friends and family you say nothing and call a lawyer - usually with 3+ recommendations on who they consider to be good criminal defense lawyers. Sure if it's their case they don't want people to lawyer up but when it comes to the folks in their life it's a lawyer palooza. And no mention of the usual tension between the feds and local law enforcement? Puh-leaze. With a lawyer and a union rep Stan could easily become the poster child for federal agents running roughshod over "good" local cops and disregarding chain of custody/evidentiary protections just to get a bust.

    Raises hand.... perfect gift for the pull my finger type dad 😉 . Also helps if you live three states away and mail the dispenser and stuff.

    I so hope next week will be the end of delusional bad girl bride's story. I'm not sure I can take another week of her clueless I'm a celebrity nonsense. The dueling cousins also seem like spoiled brats and I felt like we weren't getting the whole story. I hope the hairdresser/wedding planner/bride's grandma's bff has recovered. With no budget info and such apathy from the bride it's hard to judge the wedding. I thought it looked like a nice casual wedding on a budget. Nothing wrong with that.

    Say Yes To The Dress

    I actually gasped when I saw that. It was gorgeous as is but I could see it in an ivory color way as a bridal gown. Just stunning. Hope the student creator designer continues to design such lovely pieces.

    Windy City Rehab

    It's possible the house is under contract and still hasn't closed for whatever reason (the buyer's stipulated X months until they take possession or sell their existing home, modifications they want made to the property, or issues that popped up during a thorough inspection that need to be addressed by Allison and Donovan, etc). Or it could be the usual real estate sites haven't gotten updated deed transfer info from the city/county clerk's office. I do appreciate that the show is pretty straight forward about overages, sale/no sale, and the like. I think they'll break even on this one or walk away with a very small profit.

    QVC

    It's a new and improved rayon like fiber that is made from wood pulp. It plays well with other fibers and allows manufacturers to create various blends easier than regular rayon. also depending on the fabrication (knit, woven, mechanical stretch, filament type, etc.) a Lyocell/Tencel garment can be machine washed without fear of funky rayon shrinkage and holds dyes very well. It's more expensive than regular rayon fabrics so the cost is higher but not Q level pricing. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyocell

    Shopping Channel Hosts: Sales Prevention Team

    Can't believe I'm saying this but I like Kerstink's top. Of course I'd wear it with a black tank underneath and tailored black pants as a casual Friday type outfit.

    About a month or so ago I saw Leah on with Isaac. She mentioned about his pants being designed to take into account different shapes and not just a oh this size is twice as large so we'll make everything twice as big and end up with 30" ankle openings. She said when she was larger she appreciated that . Anywhooo, Isaac asked what size she wears now and she said a 12. I was surprised because I thought she was smaller than that but it seemed like an honest without thinking about it type of reply.

    At least it doesn't have a cold shoulder...

    Say Yes To The Dress

    I adored Jamelha's attitude on the Canadian version (she was the first bride shown) . I'm paraphrasing here but it went something like, " I'm going to wear this dress to my wedding, birthday party, your kids' parties, Christmas, my kid's party .... if we get divorced I'll wear it to court." I found my soul sister!

    Evine: Be Good

    Evine is broadcasting from their new LA digs. Set is okay but a bit smaller than what they have in Minnesota. Every time I flipped through Heather Hall (I think it's her) keeps popping into the frame when the camera isn't on her. Very odd and annoying especially since Jennifer and the esthetician have it handled and Heather isn't adding anything useful to the presentation (no this just sold out or down to the last quantities or Betty Sue Lulu is calling in from the back office with a testimonial)
