It’s Taco Bell And A Baby, There’s A Reason You Get More Wedding Invites This Month, And Taking A Cruise Without Kids

La Crosse, WI, United States / KICKS 106.3

It’s common for mamas-to-be to share updates via social media on all things pregnancy-related, but here’s a new one: Kentucky resident Kelsey McKain has decided to document the growth of her baby using a measurement system that will surely resonate with many, pregnant or not — food from Taco Bell. Kelsey perused the Taco Bell menu and created a week-by-week spreadsheet, which included how big the baby would be and a corresponding T-Bell menu item. Kelsey started documenting on Twitter when she was 13 weeks pregnant, at which point Baby McKain was the size of a hot sauce packet. At 17 weeks, Baby McKain was the size of four Cinnabon Delights from Taco Bell. Cinnabon even tweeted at Kelsey, “Congrats on the bon in the oven!” The mom-to-be’s most recent update was week 38 — with a baby in her tummy the size of a #4 combo at the Bell. Kelsey and husband Ben McKain expect their baby girl to arrive any day now. If it’s a girl. Do you think they might name her “Bella?” Source:

Remember when June was thought to be the most popular wedding month? Not anymore! September really is the most popular month to get married, according to The Knot. The Knot’s 2017 wedding statistics say 16 percent of couples got hitched in September. June and October are the next most popular, playing host to 15 and 14 percent of weddings, respectively. Can’t blame a bride or groom for wanting to avoid the dog days of summer. And according to the wedding site Zola, 40 percent of all 2018 weddings will take place during September and October.

Want to take a cruise, but don’t want to put up with kids aboard? Viking Cruises says it has listened to its customers and given them what they asked for: no children. The Switzerland-based company, which restricted its ocean voyages to people over 18 when it launched the service in 2015, says it will no longer accept bookings for children on its river cruises, which had previously allowed those 12 and over. This gives the company one of the strictest age policies in the industry. Viking previously had allowed a degree of flexibility in the minimum age for travel, but increasingly their guests have told them how much they appreciate an environment where they can travel without children.
