Birthday: May 18 (George Strait and David Nail are my birthday twins!)
Things I like: bacon, live music, shoes, cheese, summer, NY pizza, shopping (hey, I’m a girl, don’t judge), road trips,
Things I don’t like: pickles (on anything or touching my food in any way), winter, mean people, exercise (but I’m doing it anyway), people who don’t use turn signals
I don't mean to brag, but my job ROCKS (in a country way). The evidence is in this photo album.
Ok, spill it: what was the best Black Friday deal you got, whether it was in store or online? Share it in the comments!
Until now, my favorite Thanksgiving food has always been the chocolate pecan pie I make. Or the pumpkin cheesecake. Don't get me wrong, I love the turkey, the stuffing, all of the goodies that come with Thanksgiving, but the pies are by far my favorite thing.
This year, my fiance is making me what he calls "party potatoes". I don't know what's in the party, but I'm very much looking forward to finding out! Who knows? Party potatoes may replace pies in my favorites list.
What's your favorite Thanksgiving food? Leave it in the comments!
I've never been one of those people who wants to be a part of the chaos on Black Friday. There is no stuff I want badly enough to risk being trampled for. But I realize maybe you thrive on that stuff, and that's cool with me, I'll just stay out of your way.
There's no evidence that the pictures you are about to see are from now, but it's from SOME pre-Black Friday and it's people camping out at Best Buy WAY early, like by a week.
Seriously. See it here: http://www.buzzfeed.com/atmccann/41-people-already-camping-out-at-best-buy
What's the earliest you've camped out to get the big Black Friday deals? Leave it in the comments!
The best part of this video happens about 5 and a half minutes in. Watch the whole thing and have tissues ready!
Life and Style magazine put "Exlcusive Baby News" and "Blake & Miranda: We're having a baby" on their cover. See it here: http://www.lifeandstylemag.com/in-this-issue
Apparently they've taken some liberties with the truth. Here's Miranda's tweet from last night: "Don't believe everything you read! I'm having a big 'Randarita' right now in honor of the baby we are not yet having!"
I've done it myself: I see a man or woman in uniform from any branch of our military, and I try to take the time to tell them I'm grateful for their service. And I mean it sincerely. They sacrifice time with their families and sometimes they sacrifice their lives to keep us free. I'm grateful too for their families and the time they have to spend keeping things going at home while their loved one is off fighting for and protecting our way of life. Of course, those family members are usually tougher to spot and don't get nearly enough thanks.
But did you ever stop to think about how the person you're thanking for his or her military service feels about accepting that thank you?
Of course, this isn't to make you stop saying thank you. It's just a way for all of us to rethink HOW we offer our thanks, and how we can be sure they know it's sincere. And asking "how can I help?" is even better. We all have a part to do.
I'd love your thoughts on this. And if you're a current member of our military or a veteran, I'd love your take on this, too. Please leave your comments below!
Although I've never heard of this book about a homeless street performer (that's what a "busker" is, FYI) and his cat, Bob, but apparently it was a best seller, which is now going to be made into a movie.
I'm not opposed to a street cat getting a movie, and I'm really impressed with the guy who cleaned his life up for the love of a cat, but really -- where's my movie?!
Anyway, would you go see this movie? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
I am a HUGE fan of Randy Houser! He's been to the area a few times and I'm always blown away by how great he is. Dude can just WAIL, right?! Well, if you haven't seen his Video for How Country Feels yet, you've gotta watch it!
This is taken from a Washington Post article during Irene, may help explain what to expect. "At 20 mph, trees will sway and leaves may strip off.
At 30 mph, dead branches can fall. If you’re daring — or dumb — enough to walk outside, prepare to grab one of those swaying trees to keep upright. Lawn furniture will blow around unless it’s heavy or well-secured.
But stuff doesn’t really start to fly until the wind blows even harder.
