They Brought Their New Babies To Meet Their Grandma…Her Reaction? Priceless!

I’m the youngest of three and after my mom’s second boy, she was so determined to have a girl that my parents kept on trying.

Back in 2013, this couple had twin baby girls. While very exciting for them, it was an especially important announcement to the rest of their family. You see, all of the relatives of the family had been having boy babies…FOR 54 YEARS.

So when Mom and Dad flew for 17 hours to surprise the girls’ grandmother with the two little tykes, you can understand why this is her reaction!

For a while, I thought she wasn’t going to let go of those little ones. She just wants to hold and hug them forever. Eventually, grandpa gets a chance though!

Congrats to the happy family.

Mail Carrier Is Greeted By A Furry Friend Every Time He Stops At This House

Typically, you hear of the ongoing battle between dogs and mail carriers…

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

But, it’s not just dogs who dislike the men and women who deliver our packages…

Cats tend to get a bad rap for not being particularly affectionate. But mail carrier Levi Davis knows that’s not entirely true.

You see, every day when he delivers to one house in particular, he gets to visit with his biggest fan.

Rain or shine, the cutie always comes to say hey.

What a sweet treat — I bet his little friend is often the highlight of his route.

Awesome Ways To Make A Boring Fence Beautiful — Your Neighbors Will Be Jealous

When it comes to keeping neighbors’ prying eyes off of your backyard or first floor, erecting a fence is generally the easiest thing to do.

But if your neighborhood is tight-knit, putting up a fence can seem a bit offensive (pun intended). If you still want to maintain a sense of privacy without the ugly side effects, here are just a few things you can do to spruce up an otherwise offputting fence.

1. Turn your fence into a wall that your kids are allowed to write on!

2. Glue marbles to it and they’ll beautifully catch the light every afternoon.

3. Hanging old trays you’ll never use indoors is an elegant way to recycle them.

4. You can do the same with vintage china.

5. Old frames with fresh coats of paint perfectly complement small planters.

6. Mirrors not only make your backyard seem bigger, they’re also a beautiful touch.

7. Add an old window for an adorable effect.

8. Express your style by painting a fun mural on your fence.

9. Not only are these tin can planters adorable, they’re also super inexpensive!

10. These mason jar lights add just the right amount of ambience to your backyard.

11. You can also cover your fence with hanging planters.

12. Opt for a more modern fence idea with recycled shutters.

13. Live near the beach? This surf fence is perfect!

Find other fun fence ideas here!

These fences are so beautiful and functional! Just remember, if you have a dog, these tall barriers are just asking to be broken out of (or into).

15 Uses For Plastic Wrap You Never Even Considered — These Are Genius!

Plastic wrap has become a household necessity for packaging up leftovers or transporting dishes to a cookout…

But the clingy film — invented in 1949 — has many more uses you’ve probably never even considered.

From helping you travel without any toiletry messes to making a painting job easier to clean up, you may want to start stocking up on plastic wrap. You’re about to start using way more than just a box every few months!

1. De-cork a bottle of wine by swirling it around with some Saran Wrap. Remove the film and it’ll taste just fine!

2. Make a makeshift travel cup for the kids with some Press’n Seal wrap.

3. Never worry about your ice cream falling victim to frostbite again — just cover it with plastic wrap after every use.

4. Get even more life out of your bananas by separating each stem and covering them with cling wrap.

5. Forget about cleaning your fridge shelves — just put some Press’n Seal on them and peel it off whenever there’s a mess.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56f4a3b9b6f86”, auid: “537251602” });

6. Speaking of the magical sticky material — make paint cleanup a snap by lining your trays with it.

7. Don’t wash your brushes more than you have to — just cover them with plastic wrap if you’re interrupted and finish the job with a still-wet brush later.

8. Save space and ensure your jewelry never gets tangled by separating it out with Press’n Seal when you travel. Just press, fold, and go!

9. Stop finding your liquids all over your other toiletries when you arrive at your vacation destination. Wrap the bottles and then put their tops back on.

10. Get perfectly rounded corners in clay crafts when you place plastic wrap on top before using your cutter. (This also works with cookie dough!)

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56f4a3b9b710b”, auid: “537251604” });

11. Create fun, kid-friendly art projects with some plastic wrap and watercolor paints.

12. The same concept can be applied to your walls — the effect is called frottage. Cover wet walls with plastic wrap and peel it away once everything’s dry.

13. Make a perfectly poached egg every time by cooking them in plastic wrap pockets.

14. Get a better grip when you shovel or rake by wrapping the handle with a few layers of the clear film. This will also help prevent blisters.

15. Start an indoor veggie garden by creating a mini greenhouse with plastic wrap.

Finally, if you’re still just using your wrap to package up those leftovers, store it in the freezer. When you take it out, the stuff won’t stick to itself and will thaw out quickly when you apply it to your dish!

These Doughy Biscuits Are Hiding A Meaty And Cheesy Secret — Oh. My. God.

Personally, I don’t understand why people would choose not to eat gluten.

I mean, me? I can’t get enough of it! For starters, tons of foods that I love have gluten in them. And then there’s the whole thing — science — that says gluten isn’t actually bad for you (unless, of course, you have Celiac disease). If anything, you’re just causing yourself annoyance by having to pay for special gluten-free foods.

But back to the good stuff…this recipe!

When you combine biscuits (in all their gluten-y goodness), ground beef, cheese, and bacon, you’re bound to have a mouth party by the end. Just watch — and try not to drool all over yourself.

First you’re going to need mini biscuit dough. These geniuses used 24 biscuits.

Roll out some ground beef and then cut it into one-inch squares.

Cook it up!

Cook a pound of bacon too, because…well, bacon.

Flatten the biscuits out…these guys are about to get stuffed!

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56eb95db1a193”, auid: “537251602” });

Add little chunks of mozzarella and cheddar cheese.

On goes little hamburger pieces.

And the bacon!

Repeat, finishing off with a squirt of ketchup.

Fold in the edges to make little balls…

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56eb95db1a303”, auid: “537251604” });

And load them into a cast-iron skillet — bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

Grind up the extra bacon and beef in a food processor.

When they look like this, take ’em out of the oven.

Top with cheese, beef, bacon, and cheese — in that order.

Put the delicious dish back in at 400 for ten more minutes.

Serve with ketchup, mustard, mayo, or whatever your heart desires.

If your reaction is something like this, we don’t blame you.

It’s totally warranted.

This 8-Year-Old Boy Picked Up A Banjo And Absolutely BLEW Me Away!

These days, you’re more likely to find an eight-year-old boy playing video games than you are to witness them shredding it on an instrument…no less, an old-timey banjo. But that’s just what Jonny Mizzone does.

Accompanied by his two older brothers, on the fiddle and guitar, when you hear their practice session of Earl Scruggs’s “Flint Hill Special,” you may just be inspired to take up a new instrument yourself!

I know what you’re thinking:

Yeah…if you haven’t banned video games from your home yet, it’s time to do it! Get those kids on the banjo.

This Little Girl Hasn’t Seen Her Mom Clearly Until This Very Heartwarming Moment

While I can’t remember the first time I saw my mother’s face, I imagine that it was a pretty beautiful moment. She is my light, the one who brought me into this world, and so much more.

Three-month-old Tilly has had a hard time seeing since she was born. So when her parents finally got her glasses, you can imagine just how happy she was to see her mother and father clearly for the first time.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

Thankfully, we don’t have to picture it in our heads…her dad caught the heartwarming interaction on camera. Watch as her little face lights up when she sees her parents. Someone get me some tissues!

Want more? Watch as baby Leo sees his mom clearly…

I could watch these cuties all day. What an amazing difference a pair of glasses can make!

12 Water Detoxes That Burn Fat And Boost Your Immune System

It seems counterintuitive, but drinking water can actually help get rid of water weight.

I know, it’s 100% confusing, but it’s also true! But we’re not talking regular tap water. While it’s commonly recommended that you drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day, chugging cup after cup can be boring for your taste buds.

We all know that keeping hydrated has the health benefit of maintaining your energy level, but when you add a few key ingredients to your H2O, not only will you stay on point all day, you’ll also burn fat and boost your immune system!

1. The green apple in this detox water boasts appetite-suppressing effects so you’ll feel full and curb cravings at the same time.

2. Add basil to any water detox and you’ll get benefits like a curbed appetite and lowered fluid retention (read: water weight!).

3. When you put lemons in, peel and all, you give your liver enzymes a boost. This helps flush toxins from your body and even gives your metabolism a kick.

4. If you haven’t heard, blueberries are a sort of superfood. Not only do they block fat cells from forming, but they’ve also been know to prevent cancer, diabetes, and memory loss due to old age.

5. Feeling a little constipated? Throw a kiwi in with your coconut water and you’ll feel better in no time!

6. Not only does this mango, lemon, and pineapple water taste great, the spiky fruit also has bromelain. The enzyme reduces swelling and can even speed up your post-exercise recovery.

7. The grapefruit in this drink helps stabilize blood sugar and even helps burn fat. Combine that with the appetite-suppressing qualities of mint and you’re set for the day!

8. Fresh ginger quells indigestion, detoxes your body, and even contains gingerol which has been known to prevent cancer!

9. Summery watermelon contains lycopene which has anti-inflammatory properties. The fruit is also packed with amino acids to aid cardiovascular health!

10. We’ve already gone over how awesome blueberries are, but the lavender in this helps soothe your mind and body.

11. While the strawberries get rid of bad toxins in your body and speed up digestion, the lime helps purify your intestines and fortify your colon.

12. Both berries and citrus fruits contain belly fat-fighting compounds.

Who knew drinking water had so many health benefits?

With these fruity additives, it’ll be like sipping a tropical drink! Water for the win.

The Cops Pulled This Woman Over For The Most Bizarre Reason…What?

Nowadays, it seems so stupid to drink and drive. Cabs are on call at all hours, Uber is everywhere, and messaging about the dangers is impossible to ignore.

And yet some people still get behind the wheel after a few too many.

Sometimes it ends with a funeral, while other times, it’s just a close call. Luckily, 54-year-old Maryann Christy’s experience fell into the latter category.

When the Roselle Police Department got word of the Illinois local’s odd hood ornament, they pulled her over and questioned what happened.

You’re not going to believe this.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Since we are new to Facebook, we were not quite sure what to expect from our post. We have received requests to post the video from this call. Some just didn’t believe it was true, so we have attached a short video of this call.The first portion of the video is in slow-motion and shows the car traveling in the opposite direction; the second portion shows the officer trying to stop the car and then as he approaches the driver. Yes, it is true and it happened! DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!

Posted by Roselle Police Department on Monday, March 7, 2016

(via Huffington Post)

The woman’s air bags had been deployed, she failed a sobriety test, and apparently couldn’t remember where the accident had occurred. While the video is amusing to watch, the truly scary part is just how much damage the drunk driver could have done had she not been stopped.
