Lake Michigan Jane Doe is identified as Yarianna G Wheeler, she's 19 years old and six months pregnant. A fisherman found her body in the water on August 15th, after she was floating for seven or twelve days....she wasn't identified until Saturday August 28th.
Yarianna Wheeler was from Bellwood, Indiana but lived in Chicago. An autopsy revealed she had sharp injuries to her body, the official cause of death is still pending. Her death is ruled as a homicide.
The Lake County Coroner's Office Forensic Odontologist using her dental records.
The strange thing about this case is no one reported her missing.
I would like to know if she had any family?
Who is the child's father?
Why did this happen to her?
I hope they find the person responsible for this.

The season is here for hot drinks during those cold months.
Hot chocolate is the number one drink around this time of year, but why not switch it up a bit and try white hot chocolate. It's a simple recipe and it's fun to make with the kids.
Here are the items you need to get started.....
3. white chocolate bits
4. vanilla extract
5. whip cream
You decide how much you want to make and go from there, but if you're making enough for 2 here's what you do...
You'll need a sauce pot, fill it half way with milk.
Let your milk get hot and pour a bag of chocolate bits in the sauce pot and stir until all the white chocolate has melted. (Low fire is suggested)
Add a drop of vanilla extract and keep stirring for a minute or two.
Remove your pot from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
Now it's time to pour your white hot chocolate into the mugs...don't fill it to the top. Squeeze your whip cream into the mug and top it off with marshmallows and enjoy!
You can also add a peppermint stick but that's optional.
I hope you and your family enjoy making this recipe.
If you need a visual on how to do it...the video is down below.

If you're thinking about traveling to NYC, here are some hot spots that are must see!
I'm a New Yorker, been there all my life.
As the times changed, so did NYC, at one point it wasn't the hottest city to visit.
Back in the day it was horrible, the crime was high, in some areas it was dull and full of abandoned buildings. With all of that going on, it's my home and I wouldn't want to be from anywhere else. I grew with NYC, I've seen the changes over years, the fashion, the food is like no other place. As we move forward, NYC is that city that everyone wants to visit.
Brooklyn Hot Spots
Dumbo (Brooklyn Bridge)
Cobble Hill Park
Gantry Plaza State Park
Alley Pond Park
Empire State Building
The Statue Of Liberty
The High Line
Fort Tryon Park
Pier 15 South Street Seaport
Stone Street NYC (Restaurant Alley)
One World Trade Center & Memorial
New York City is full of excitement and so many things to do, you'll never get bored vacationing in NYC.
This list is just to get you started on your journey in NYC.
Enjoy your trip and be safe.

Now that Fall is here, that's usually the time a lot of baking goes down.
I can just smell the cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract and all kinds of spices in the air.
I remember a time when my grandma and mother would get together around the holidays and bake up a fierce storm, the aroma spices filled the house, fighting over who's going to lick the spoon or get the cake bowl. Wonderful memories, that was such an amazing time during my childhood. Speaking of memories, a friend of mine named Kim aka This Housewife shared a recipe with me and one of her memories of eating good food that the church ladies cooked and served from the trunk of their cars.
About a week or two ago Kim uploaded a video on her YouTube channel (This Housewife) of a Buttermilk Pie. The recipe is very simple to make, before we get into that let me share how she came across this recipe.
Me: What's the story behind this Old School Buttermilk recipe?
Kim (This Housewife): I got the recipe in one of those old school church cookbooks, I was cleaning up and saw the cookbook and started looking through it and saw the buttermilk recipe. It instantly reminded me of my days growing up in the church, in the south we would have tent revivals and the mother of the church would be serving food out of the trunks of their cars in the church yard. The food would be amazing!
So I got in my kitchen and made it and after it cooled in the fridge for a few hours my folks dived on it like they just got out of prison it was gone that same day.
I told someone in the comments on the video that it tasted like an old fashioned, sin killing, devil chasing , Holy Ghost filled tent revival 😍.
Well there you have it, the history behind that delicious Old School Buttermilk Pie.
Head over to her channel and snatch up that recipe and since the weather is cooling off, make a few pies for your family and friends.
Make sure to follow her on IG:(This_Housewife) and tell her PhoneJones sent you.

Let's get right to the point, if you constantly worry about family/friends that don't support you, you're going to drive yourself crazy and you need to stop!
We live in a time where social media is booming, everything is on the internet and you may want to start a business or blog..etc. Go ahead start whatever business or blog you want, put it out there and see what happens. Tell your family/friends, your biggest support system will come from strangers, you would think people you've know for years would support you...it doesn't always happen that way.
Don't get discouraged, keep moving forward, build your brand.
I know from personal experiences how it feels to not have the most important people in your life show lack of support. It sucks but there's nothing you could but move on and take notes on who was there for you as your business progress.
Being a entrepreneur or blogger is hard work but if that's what you want to do, go for it and make a name for yourself. Somebody will notice you and spread the word!
I hope this helped someone out there.

Mariah Carey has a new book coming out and right behind that her new album Rarities will be out October 2, 2020. In her memoir she spills all the tea about her family and what it was like growing up in such a violent home.
Let's start with family:
Her estranged sister mistreated her at a young age.
Her sister Alison wasn't loving towards Mariah, she offered her drugs. Mariah states that her sister gave her a Valium pill when she was 12 years old. Mariah claims that her sister tried to sell her to a pimp. As we go further, Mariah also claims that her sister threw hot tea on her when she tried to give the phone to her. That's no way for a child to live at all!
Mariah Carey marriage to Tommy Mottola was far from being a fairytale. Mariah talked about how he would argue with her in front of colleagues. Mariah describes her home in Bedford, NY as Sing Sing....yes like the prison. Tommy Mottola threatened her in front people in the industry. Mariah claims he held a butter knife to her face. She went through hell in her marriage.
In Mariah's memoir she opens up about her life, and from what I can see it started out ugly but her life blossomed into a beautiful butterfly.
Celebrities have a life we know nothing about and some will never tell you about the past, because of the pain or maybe they don't want to be reminded of whatever happened at the time.
Make sure to pick up your copy of Mariah Carey memoir.

Today I'm going to give you some suggestions on what to cook and how to stretch your meals.
Right now we're all living this new quarantine life, and for some people it can be challenging.
Let's talk food!
Are you tired of cooking the same meals?
If so, now is the time to get creative!
Depending on the size of your family, you can make meals that can last at least 2 days.
Pasta: It doesn't matter if it's spaghetti, baked ziti, lasagna, etc. These meals can be made in large pans and will last a few days, all you need as sides are salad and garlic bread.
Stews: You could never go wrong with a nice pot of beef/chicken stew, with potatoes, carrots, celery, sweet peppers over some yellow or white rice.
Tacos: Who doesn't love tacos?! All you need is some ground meat, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, cheese and if you want it to really be hearty add corn or beans.
What about the days you don't feel like cooking?
You could always go to the supermarket and get a few frozen pizzas and some wings.
During these times, you have to get creative and search for recipes online, you'll definitely find some that you might want to try.
I hope this helps some of you and if you have any questions, comment below.
