The main idea was just picking names we liked. 😃
John found the name Axton and we both loved it. We had never heard of anyone with that name before.
With Elliot, my brother Denver's middle name is Elliot. We also greatly admire the faith of the missionary Jim Elliot. Ultimately, John and I both loved the name, so Elliot it was. =)"

 No, no really it’s an SUV not a name right?

I like Denver as a name. Two of his brothers have a brother-in-law named Carver Bowers. Carver is in honor some Christian guy, but it's unfortunate name imo. 

George Washington Carver? Because they’re into science? They like peanut butter? They’re into black dudes that had a lot of gay sex?

So, they're probably having the rehearsal dinner right about now. I'd love to know where they ended up having it? That coffee shop that has the back room where Nurie had her shower? The local Cracker Barrel? The GOOD Olive Garden? 

Wherever Dingus are paying for the meal. Or Nathan is paying.

Since the family of the groom usually hosts the rehearsal dinner, I’m thinking that it could be a potluck at the church, unless the Keller’s opted for a restaurant. 
Either way, the Rods are getting FREE FOOD!

I suspected that it would be after lunch since we all know that the Rods will be hard pressed to even serve cake and punch.

In that case I wouldn't be surprised if the rehearsal dinner is relatively more elaborate than the reception after the wedding (unless Jill managed to grift that).

As I've said I've heard of other boys named Denver including one I went to school with. 

Carver is apparently after William Owen Carver, Christian missionary.

Nurie's last night squished in the tacky, fire-trap girls' dorm. So much unoccupied space is going to freak her out. 

I wish her and Nathan well. I hope they don't get sick and Jill doesn't manage to make the whole day about her favorite person in the world, Jill.

Happy wedding day Nurie! Can't wait to see what your PimpMomma has planned. I'm sure it's truly fabulous aka tacky as hell!

And happy intimate touching day to Nathan. Don't screw it up!  

 ** Edited to say I really hope that Nurie gets the wedding SHE wanted not what her famewhore mother cooked up for her. These poor kids have suffered enough. May she go on to set up her own life and prosper.

David Rodrigues also has an eponymous YouTube channel. It has not been updated in a year or so, but another place to check for a wedding livestream. 

There is also a 3-part video series "The Amy Foster Story" and a fourth video about Amy and Kevin's courtship made in honor of their 11th anniversary.

Guys, I'm not prepared. Although I do have a casual summer dress and can throw a sweater on to be more modest, I don't have any punch or mints in the house. And what about birdseed or bubbles? I have nothing to celebrate the newlyweds as they walk to their car. 

I guess I could drink a beer and eat grapes and cheese and then yell woohoo, woohoo, as they leave.

Lads! The Nurptials are finally here! I'm far more invested in this than I should be. I blame corona. And being at home for 4 months now (I think).

I did think if I should dress up in honour of it, seeing as I don't own green eyeliner or cheap mascara, but I could dress up in layers, although I only own sluttish trousers and no dress or skirts. (I KNOW!!)

There is no hummingbird juice in my fridge (what IS that even?), but I have some wee creamy cakes that I could snaffe instead.

Google says the time in Ohio is 6 hours behind me, I'm imagening the nurptials to be around early afternoon, no? I.can't.wait.

It's for putting into hummingbird feeders.

Though experts recommend just using sugar and water without the red coloring.

Because mixing a cup of sugar with 4 cups of water and a couple of drops of red food coloring is too much math for the Rods.*

*I know the red food coloring is not recommending but I can't see the Rods omitting it.

Nuire is busy losing the last two ounces of fat before she gets into her dress.

The Kellers are trying to keep horny Nathan as distracted as possible.

Jill is busy filling outside tables with tiny frosted cupcakes so they can sit in the sun as long as possible.

David is fixing a leak in the barndominium plumbing.

SEVERELY QUADRIPLEGIC Amy is stuck trying to turn her wheelchair around among the intrusive decorations in the the barndo entry way. 

The Dingii are looking at their bank account nervously wondering how many cows they're going to have to sell to finance this wedding. 

Anna Duggar is still trying to decide if she can really go through with this.

"singing" is being extremely generous.

Can we take bets on what we think the nurptials will look like?

Seriously though, I hope that child will have a nice day, HER day, without the narcisstic bitch that is her Mother buggering it up for her.

Well isn't Dollar General a step up from Dollar Tree?  These store often do have some fairly nice basic decor items.  But with Jill, no matter where she shops it's most definitely going to wind up looking tacky.

While we wait for wedding news - evidently Carlin messed up her new car while they drove it home.  She was getting gas and hit the door on a metal barrier.  

I am sympathetic- she was not used to driving a large vehicle.  I can relate- I always pick smaller cars.  My depth perception is not great.  I tend to overcompensate, so I am constantly  backing up after I pull into parking spots because I am not centered, or the back end of the car is sticking out into the lane.  My car's backup camera has been a real help to me. Never had an accident in a parking lot, although I have scrapes on my wheel covers from turning too close to curbs. 🤦‍♀️

But C & E  are so determined to push their brand as the "lovable wacky couple" that they have to post this stuff.  I would have kept it to myself.

If there is to be a livestream, a placeholder for the video would show up first probably a little before the video starts. Usually when a video premieres there is a slight delay and youtube waiting music.

My experience with live streams is limited to true crime press conferences. And they usually announce ahead of time and provide a link you can have pulled up while you wait for it to start. But I wouldn't expect Jill to be that organized or low key about anything. 

Just realized I cross posted with Temperance. 😁

I have a feeling Jill is hoping that by not livestreaming or posting pictures, she'll have a chance to make some money from People or Us Weekly. If she doesn't post anything by tonight, that would be why. And when she posts a flood of videos and images on, say, Monday evening, we'll know that the inevitable happened and every tabloid turned her down.

All I want to see is a picture of Anna trying not to look as embarrassed as she feels.
