    Think back to your wedding presents. Which are the ones you remember best? Still glowing from her 30th anniversary, Michelle Duggar remembers one special wedding gift that made a lasting impression on her family. It was a surprise from their neighbors, an elderly couple. "They were like our adopted grandparents," Duggar writes in a recent blog post. "And they lived three doors down from our first honeymoon cottage." This present is something the Duggars still use to this day.

    Most new moms resign themselves to the fact that the weeks and maybe even months after giving birth are not going to be among the most stylish they've ever had. Or the sexiest. But Dita Von Teese is on a mission to change that way of thinking once and for all. The fashion star has paired up with Destination Maternity to launch a limited edition "capsule" maternity collection called Von Follies by Dita Von Teese.

    Dita's motivation for the line: “Elegant underpinnings are a simple way to create everyday moments of luxury and beauty, and why wouldn’t a new mother enjoy beautiful lingerie, too?” Right on! But elegance and beauty isn't all the undies are supposed to offer mamas!

    Damn. Chelsea Houska is looking slimmer than ever these days, and apparently she needed a dramatic hair change to complement her bangin' new bod.

    And due to the camera angle and/or lighting in recent photos of her, we totally missed her big makeover. It's such a huge shift from her brown hair with subtle red highlights, I'm not even sure where to begin.

    The picture she shared on Twitter speaks for itself, people.

    Has this ever happened to you? You have all the ingredients (and the best intentions) for preparing a delicious dinner in your Crock-Pot when, all of a sudden, you realize you were supposed to get cookin' three hours ago? If you're like me, you've probably wondered, "Instead of eight hours on low, can I just set it for four on high? Is there a difference?" 

    Crock-Pot guru and author of the soon-to-be released OATrageous Oatmeals Kathy Hester shares her insight into the mysteries of the slow cooker's high versus low settings.

    "In a modern slow cooker, if a general recipe says to cook for eight hours on low, you can usually cook it four hours on high instead if the timing works better for you," she explains.

    Good to know, but is that really all there is to it? Not so fast, Hester says.

    OMG! The finale of The Bachelorette may have been a little bit blah, considering we've known for weeks that Andi Dorfman picked Josh Murray to be the last man standing. But holy MOLY -- how amazeballs was the "After the Final Rose" special, when Nick Viall called Andi out for making love to him in the fantasy suite?

    I can't lie, I almost got up off the couch and cheered when the words came out of his mouth. Dude is my new hero. For reals.

    Oh come on, don't even try and act like Nick was out of line, because Andi had more than enough opportunities to talk to him privately off camera, and she refused.

    She hasn't exactly come out and verbally admitted that she's pregnant, but after seeing Zoe Saldana's growing baby bump, it's pretty clear that she's not carrying around a food baby.

    For an appearance on Good Morning America to promote her new movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, Zoe showed up in a fitted maroon dress. It basically screams, "Yes, I'm pregnant, ok? But it's nobody's business but mine, so I don't feel the need to talk about it."

    Have a look at her bump and see if it looks like she could possibly be anything other than pregnant.

    Does the idea of stealing a few romantic moments with your husband while vacationing with the kids seem as unlikely as not hearing the dreaded "Are we there yet?" when embarking on an eight-hour road trip

    But making sure you and your spouse have a little downtime can be the key to a truly relaxing and enjoyable getaway. Licensed professional counselor Terri DiMatteo of the award-winning Open Door Therapy agrees. 

    "Child-centered family vacations can result in parents returning home tired, fatigued, and resentful -- in need of a separate vacation just for them," says DiMatteo. "It’s all too easy for parents to overlook their own needs when planning a 'family vacation.'"

    If the closest you'll get to achieving intimacy on a family vacation this summer is holding hands while waiting in line for the log flume ride, don't despair. We've got some suggestions for making the magic happen, even with the whole brood on board.

    Seems like it was just yesterday Chelsea Clinton announced her pregnancy, but time must be flying, because Hillary Clinton reportedly threw her daughter a memorable baby shower at a popular upscale restaurant in Westchester, New York earlier this month. The event reportedly went longer than expected (they left around 10 p.m., two hours after the party was set to wrap up!) and was marked by guest appearances from President Bill Clinton and Chelsea's husband Marc Mezvinsky.

    And aside from the fact that the cast of characters here include a former POTUS and Secretary of State, it sounds like it really was your run-of-the-mill feting of a mom-to-be. Except Chelsea didn't adhere to one time-honored baby shower tradition: Gift-opening!

    After all the dramatic news about Kourtney Kardashian and her longtime love Scott Disick recently, it's nice to see the two of them out and about, together, and looking happy. The adorable couple, who are expecting their third child together, stepped out on Saturday night to attend the 2014 Baby Buggy Summer Dinner at a private residence in the Hamptons.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that it was the Seinfeld's since the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star posted a picture to Instagram on Sunday about the "amazing host" Jessica Seinfeld. And speaking of that photo -- is a picture worth a thousand words or what?
