Deer photo-bombs wedding pictures, eats bride’s bouquet

Oh deer.

While they posed for their wedding photos, a couple in Michigan were interrupted by an uninvited but hungry guest. Shockingly, the intruder decided to snack on the bride’s bouquet, which is normally considered bad wedding etiquette. However, since the hungry intruder was actually just a curious deer, the couple was actually pretty amused by the whole situation.

The moment was caught by the wedding photographer and uploaded to Laurenda Marie Photography’s Facebook page. It was captioned, “Deer: 1, Bouquet: 2.”

The post continues, “When the field you want to take bride & groom portraits in has an overtly friendly deer…you roll with it until the deer decides the bouquet is lookin’ like a good snack. Morgan & Luke, you rock. Much more from your beautiful day to come!”

The photos show the couple happily posing near Saugatuck Dunes State Park, FOX 47 reports. As they stand near an old wooden fence, a curious deer suddenly appears and quickly takes notice of Morgan’s bouquet, which had been created by Melissa Anne Floral Co.

The animal eventually climbs over the fence and starts munching on the flowers, much to the couple’s amusement. Based on the photos, the deer apparently got to finish off its bouquet-meal.

At weddings, it’s tradition for the bride to throw the bouquet and whoever catches it will be the next to get married. It’s not clear what happens to the guest that eats the bouquet, but maybe this deer has a love connection coming its way.

In a serendipitous moment, a Florida sheriff’s deputy came across a bottle discovered on a Walton County beach with a special note inside.

“This bottle contains the ashes of my son, Brian, who suddenly and unexpectedly passed on March 9, 2019. I’m sending him on one last adventure,” the note read.

Sgt. Paula Pendleton was on duty when someone reported finding the glass bottle to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office. The bottle, which was cast into the waters on Aug. 1 from Destin, Fla., held notes, a small bag containing human ashes and four $1 bills, the Walton County Sheriff’s Office shared on Facebook.

Pendleton, who lost her husband suddenly in April 2018 at age 50, was touched by the unexpected find.

In another note found in the bottle, a girl identifying herself as Brian’s daughter shared the heartbreak her family went through, and why they decided to include some of his ashes.

“Hi, my name is Peyton,” the note read. “I am Brian’s daughter. When my father passed, I was 14 years old. It has struck our whole family pretty hard and, so far, it has been a very hard road. But, like my granny said, he loved to be free. So, that’s exactly what we are doing.”

In addition to the messages, there was a list of email addresses and phone numbers for the finder of the bottle to use in order to contact to let the family know where Brian’s journey had taken him.

“If you find it, please call or text me and let me know, then kindly set him free once again,” the note read.

H&M stops buying Brazilian leather over Amazon rainforest fires

Low-cost fashion retailer H&M said Friday it is suspending leather purchases from Brazil to make sure it is not supporting cattle farming that may be contributing to the fires in the Amazon rainforest.

The move by the Stockholm-based company follows a similar decision by the maker of Vans and Timberland shoes. Some international investors are also trying to put pressure on the Brazilian government, which has been seen as too lax in its approach to protecting the rainforest.

Hennes & Mauritz AB said its temporary ban on leather from Brazil will remain in place “until there are credible assurances … that the leather does not contribute to environmental harm in the Amazon.”

The move may be more about the message than the business impact, as H&M sources the vast majority of its leather from Europe’s from the meat industry, with only a small part from Brazil. The company declined to provide figures.

In 2017, less than 1% of H&M’s range of clothes was made of leather and it used synthetic leather products five times as much as real leather. The group has already been moving away from using materials derived from animals.

Last week, VF Corp., the owner of Timberland, Vans and several other shoe and clothing brands said it also stopped buying leather from Brazil because of the rainforest fires.

Based in Greensboro, North Carolina, VF Corp. said it won’t purchase leather and hide from Brazilian suppliers until it’s assured that the materials “do not contribute to environmental harm in the country.” VF said 5% of the leather it purchases for its products comes from Brazil.

The current fires in the Amazon are largely attributed to people clearing the forest for cattle ranching and crops. About 60% of the Amazon rainforest is in Brazil.

Maryland grandma who gave birth to daughter’s triplets inspired foundation that funded $800,000-worth of infertility procedures

Westlake Legal Group 5f0d3795-ivf-istock-large Maryland grandma who gave birth to daughter's triplets inspired foundation that funded $800,000-worth of infertility procedures fox-news/lifestyle/parenting fox-news/health/reproductive-health/pregnancy fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc e9fc0966-8151-5d00-8aa5-2c8366d0f0ea Danielle Wallace article

A Maryland woman who at the age of 55 carried triplets for her daughter inspired a foundation that helps couples who are struggling to get pregnant afford fertility procedures, according to a report.

Camille and Jason Hammond tried for years to get pregnant and went through six rounds of vitro fertilization (IVF) before finally asking Camille’s mother to help them give her a grandchild.

ILLINOIS BABY HAS 5-INCH GROWTH REMOVED FROM NECK HOURS AFTER BIRTH

The couple launched the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation, named after Camille’s mom, in 2005, a year after their children’s birth. This year the fund announced it has given out more than $800,000 in grants to 113 families struggling to get pregnant since its inception, according to a report by Atlanta’s WXIA-TV.

“Even despite all that we had, we still struggled with infertility. It almost broke us as a family,” Camille said. “It’s great that we overcame, but there are so many that don’t have all these advantages that we have.”

Camille has endometriosis, a condition that causes the uterine lining to grow outside the uterus, which makes it difficult to become pregnant. After years of trying naturally and undergoing six rounds of in vitro fertilization, doctors told the couple their best chances of having a child were either adoption or asking a surrogate to carry the couple’s child for them.

“We were devastated,” Camille said. “The prospect of another woman that you don’t know carrying that baby, that’s really an awful thought.”

Camille’s mother, Tinina Cade, eventually came forward and agreed to receive IVF at the age of 55, so that her daughter and son-in-law would be able to trust their surrogate would stay healthy throughout the pregnancy.

“I saw my beautiful daughter, who was always a happy spirit, become sad,” Cade said. She said the day she told her daughter she was pregnant was “one of the best days, highly emotional.”

Even though she was post-menopausal, doctors determined she could still carry a fertilized egg. On the second round of the fertilization procedure, she found out all three embryos survived and she was carrying triplets. Cade carried the triplets for seven months before doctors delivered her grandchildren via Caesarean section in December 2004, Atlanta’s WXIA-TV reported.

“I saw these beautiful little people and they were ours, we had overcome,” Camille said.

Instagrammers have ruined California’s super-bloom

Leave it to Instagrammers to ruin something else.

The owners of tourist attraction Daffodil Hill have taken to Facebook to announce that they are closing the California super bloom hot spot indefinitely, noting a lack of infrastructure to handle the hordes of people who flocked to see the flowers.

“This decision is the most difficult that we, as a family, have ever made,” the Ryan family, who owns the space, wrote in the lengthy post. They added that the “crush of visitors that descended upon our Hill this year” forced them to realize that the lack of parking areas and local road infrastructure was too much to overcome and became a “liability” and caused “safety concerns for everyone involved.”

“We have carefully examined numerous potential remedies to reduce traffic and visitors to try and keep the Hill open, including shuttles and reservations for attendance,” they continued. “However, in the end, we reached the same conclusion that the narrows roads and the Hill property infrastructure cannot be changed.”

The Ryan family added that cars were parked illegally and obstructed pedestrians, as well as emergency vehicles. They said they will not make any further statements regarding the closure.

News of the closing was first reported by the New York Post.

Man swears off Tinder after friends mock him for using same pickup line

A student has revealed he was “tripped out” after two women he was messaging on Tinder gave the exact same response to a cheesy pickup line.

A bachelor named Trenton from Kansas recently shared his story in a Twitter post explaining he was given the shock of his life when he realized the women he had been messaging were not just friends, but roommates too.

“I’m deleting Tinder,” he wrote online alongside screen grabs of the message exchanges between the two women.

In both, Trenton starts the conversation with the same corny line: “Imagine this. We are both strangers in a grocery store but we will somehow make eye contact in the produce section. My hands are full of limes, I am unable to hold all of them. Limes are falling all over the ground.”

BRIDE-TO-BE PULLS ‘FIRST LOOK’ PRANK ON GROOM WITH BEST MAN’S HELP: ‘I WAS COMPLETELY SHOCKED’

“Rolling left, right and just all over. You rush over in an effort to help and I look deeply in to your eyes and say, ‘sorry, I’m bad at pickup limes,’” he offered.

The two women, named Angie and Niki, must have realized that they had both received the exact same line after they hatched a plan to respond with an identical message of their own.

“Okay, that was really good,” their respective replies read. “I think you deserve my snap or phone number for that one.”

Explaining that he was “tripped out” that both women had responded with identical messages, Trenton replied to Angie, explaining: “Okay not gonna lie the weirdest thing just happened.”

“I haven’t been on Tinder for a few days so I sent that out to a couple of girls and you gave the literal exact response as another girl. Not trying to sound like a player or whatever but I’m tripped out,” he explained.

But all became suddenly clear after Angie simply replied with a YouTube link to a meme video titled: “And they were roommates”.

Trenton’s tweet has since gone viral, racking up over 75,000 shares and 422,000 likes to date.

Twitter users found the turn of events hilarious, with hundreds commenting on the post.

“I feel like we all have one solid line that just works,” one wrote.

“It’s fine I’ve matched with two different sets of roommates in the past week,” another said.

Trenton later added in the comments: “I’m just gonna let the ladies message me first @Bumble please sponsor me.”

Vacationing girl, 3, orders milk from pool bar in hilarious viral video: ‘My daughter is actually something else’

If you want something done right, sometimes you have to do it yourself.

A video of a confident little girl ordering herself a glass of milk from an outdoor, poolside bar while on vacation with her family has gone massively viral on Twitter, racking up over 1.3 million views to date.

Ben and Sophie Anderson were recently vacationing with their daughter Myla, 3, in Dubrovnik, Croatia, when they had to inform their thirsty child they had forgotten to pack milk for her during an excursion to a swanky pool, Metro reports.

Unfazed, Myla headed to the bar alone to get what she wanted.

FRAZZLED GIRL’S ADORABLE BACK-TO-SCHOOL PHOTO GOES VIRAL

“My daughter is actually something else,” Ben, from London, wrote on Twitter on Aug. 26, sharing the must-see video. “We told her there was no milk in the baby bag so she got out the pool and took herself to the bar to go and ask for some and the bar staff actually served her a glass.”

In the nine-second clip, the frustrated-looking tot waits on a barstool while a server prepares her chilled drink. Surrounded by adults, a wine-drinking woman can be seen chuckling at the fearless little lady.

In the days since, social media users have also gotten a kick out of Myla’s audacity, praising her independent spirit as a miniature “boss” and “queen,” while Ben joked it looked like she had had “a hard day at the office.”

As for more details, the youngster’s father revealed that Myla’s two sisters were too shy to escort her to the bar in her quest for milk – though that didn’t slow her down for a moment.

“We said we didn’t have any [milk] so she stormed out of the pool and over to the bar,’” the dad told Metro. “She climbed up onto the barstool and, according to one of the ladies at the bar, asked the bartender for a bottle of milk very politely.”

“According to one of the ladies in the video she went over and first asked for a bottle of milk but the lady said they only had glasses and Myla said ‘a glass is fine,’” he later laughed on Twitter.

Ben thanked the bartender for being “so good” with his young daughter in kindly offering her the special drink on the house, and admitted that he “can’t stop laughing at her facial expressions” the more he re-watches the clip.

Influencer slammed for mourning dead relatives while promoting swim brand

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6050843124001_6050849862001-vs Influencer slammed for mourning dead relatives while promoting swim brand The Sun Lauren Clark fox-news/style-and-beauty fox-news/lifestyle fnc/lifestyle fnc article 35fe04f4-0cdf-5ed5-8f8d-5b6c708530dc

An Instagram star has been slammed for tagging a swimsuit brand in a recent post paying tribute to deceased relatives and friends.

Marissa Casey Grossman, 30, from New York, defended herself from the backlash by claiming that “they’d all want to know” where her two-piece was from if they were still alive.

In her original post, the influencer – whose account @fashionambitionist has 178,000 followers – shared a picture of her enjoying a vacation to the Italian island of Capri with her husband Gabriel, 30. Captioning the snap, she wrote: “To the moon and back!!!!!”

“Living our best lives for Meme, Michelle Blumenthal, Sam Allen, Aunt Sue, Gabe’s Grandparents, Lauren Marcus…. and all those that shine on us everyday,” Grossman began.

“Because of you that left us way to soon— we try our very hardest to never take any day for granted and to always be grateful,” she continued. “Everyday counts and…. because they’d all want to know too, swimsuit is @montce_swim.”

The post has received more than 4,000 likes with many followers commenting that her ensemble was “cute” and “beautiful.” However, the social media starlet was soon blasted on Twitter for plugging the swimwear brand in her tribute.

In a tweet that has received over 1,800 likes, one person wrote: “Influencing is lamenting the death of your loved ones in the first sentence, and then making sure everyone knows where you got your swimming costume from in the next sentence.”

Another social media user replied: “I hate but love people like this just to make myself feel better for not being so vacuous.”

And a third added: “I hate influencers. I really do. So much self-entitlement.”

However, Grossman quickly responded to the criticism on her Instagram Story with a comment defending her decision.

“While I do appreciate your concern and comment about my five best friends who passed away and my grandmother and my aunt – I am pretty certain if they are looking down on me, they want to know what I am wearing,” she said.

“I know that sounds weird but my grandmother got so much joy in life through me pursuing clothes with my friends Lauren, Michelle and Samantha – I was friends with them all since I was 5 – 25,” she elaborated. “Just because someone passes away doesn’t mean we need to focus on the ‘sadness’. I am confident that they would appreciate this message.”

“So please think before you speak about my best friends that all passed away from cancer, getting hit by a f—— garbage truck, tumors, diabetes and so many other terrible complications,” Grossman argued. “Please think before you post and comment. One of my best friend actually passed away in front of me from an aneurysm when I was 13 – I don’t think you know anything about her or our relationship.”

“Enough is enough. Stop bullying me. My friends would be texting me if they were alive saying ‘Can I borrow that?’ and probably never give it back,’” she concluded.

It isn’t the first time that the influencer – who works for Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand Goop – has come under fire.

Earlier this year, it was claimed she staged partner Gabriel’s marriage proposal by making it appear on Instagram as though he had organized her a luxurious global scavenger hunt.

It later transpired she had invited brands to “align” with her social media platform in paid partnerships or gifts, and provided them with a full itinerary for her upcoming engagement.

The Daily Spike: Spike’s first report card

It’s been a hard couple of weeks, not having my buddy by my side. I think about Spike every day. What’s he’s up to? Does he like his roommate? Is he making new friends? Is he working hard and studying? I sure hope so!

THE DAILY SPIKE: SPIKE’S FIRST WEEK AT DOGGY COLLEGE

One of the many things I like about Canine Companions is that they send you a report card once a month.  They don’t “grade” him with As, Bs and Cs, but give you a general idea of how he’s doing. The dogs are being evaluated to determine suitability for placement with a person with a disability. Therefore standards of behaviors are very specific and stringent.

Spike’s only been at doggy college for a couple of weeks so it’s too early to tell how he’s truly doing. But I like to think Spike is a superstar and a straight-A student. (Jennifer Williams)

I just got Spike’s first report card and immediately opened it up, of course.

Spike’s trainer Kim Furino took him and several of her other trainees to Lowe’s home improvement store to assess how he handles himself in pubic. It also helps Kim determine what he needs to work on. They test how he handles surprises and whether he will walk on different surfaces — which they talked about in his report card.

“Spike has settled well into the kennels. We have started with an assessment of basic commands and have been working on nose targeting which will progress to the push command. We went on our first field trip this month to Lowes. Spike was stable with sudden sounds and unfamiliar surfaces. However, he consistently forged (walks ahead of me) throughout the field trip despite redirection and corrections. During the field trip, Spike tried to scavenge cardboard and weeds from the floor during a greeting. We will work on appropriate behavior. Spike is appropriate during community play.”

Oh boy. I’m not surprised to hear that he was “forging” on the field trip to Lowe’s. He did that a bit towards the end, but cardboard and weeds? Who the heck wants to eat cardboard? Stop it, Spike!

His trainer Kim specifically walked him by the Halloween display in the store to see how he reacted to the costumes and sounds. He took an extra-long look at the scary-looking giant werewolf, but wouldn’t you if you were a dog? She said that was pretty normal, though.

I was so happy to hear he is “appropriate” during community play, as he had a humping phase after getting mercilessly humped by a friend’s French Bulldog. I’m glad he’s stopped that.

And he’s doing “nose targeting,” which is cool. Eventually, he will learn the “push” command, which he will use to push a button that may open a door that his person would be unable to do on their own.
