I’m not one for gossip BUT OH MY GOSH THIS T SWIZZ/KIM K DRAMA GOT ME LIKE *faints*

Can I just say a quick thank you to the Kim K team for concocting this epic distraction from the real problems in our world?? My heart and soul NEEDED this.

Recent world events have reminded me that I don’t belong here. I belong somewhere with less hate and more love. Preferably with Jesus or in outer space or anywhere but here really.

Though, if I weren’t here, I’d be missing out on all of this celebrity drama & I’m not sure I could live with myself! This is what America needed right now – a good ole fashioned celeb feud to unite us all & remind us that there are still super rich and famous people in the world who are oblivious to real issues. Personally, I can’t wait to be a celebrity worth bahoodles of dinero and have my biggest problem be when Justin Bieber or a One Directioner sings about me. That sounds pretty darn dreamy if you ask me.

Though a song about me would most likely be about how I smell like onion at all times.

I’m happiest when I’m dining at sketchy restaurants.

I’ve explained my love & devotion to mediocre chain restaurants before. It’s just in my DNA.

Garr & I tried a new church yesterday & the first thing that has to happen after spending time with Jesus is FOOOOOOOD. I typically cry so much I’m just exhausted & need fuel.

What is right down the street from this church? YOU GUESSED IT – a Red Robin. Imagine like screeching tires & curb jumping as I force him to turn into the parking lot. No, I don’t eat burgers. Not the point. The POINT is a little something I like to call bottomless french fries. Did we partake? Absolutely. Did I look pregnant the rest of the day? Definitely. WORTH IT.

So I couldn’t prepare the potatoes I had planned to make with dinner because I literally would have exploded into 1,000 Rachel pieces.
