Can I Make You A Drink?
Would you trust Kidd O'Shea and I to make you a drink?

Well...we were put to the test this week to help raise money for the Sojourner Family Peace Center.

He and I were guest bartenders at Rustico on Water Street and let's just say there was a reason why I started to pour only wine and Kidd made the "real drinks" - which were pretty strong I might add.

Please help...
Every year, myself and Alley Faith from 103.7 Kiss FM co-chair teams for Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

And last night we were at the VIP kickoff event for Susan G. Komen. What a night! It was so uplifting to hear stories from women whose lives have been affected by breast cancer and how Komen has helped them. They even had a Pink candy station (photo).

Will you please find it in your heart to join The Mix team and help us fight breast cancer and find a cure as we walk on Milwaukee's lakefront on September 23rd?

Just click here.

He wants attention
Does your dog do this? Right when I sit down and get comfortable on the couch to watch my favorite show ("Bachelor Pad") my dog Gus will park his little butt right in front of me and stare.

He's so darn cute I can't ignore him, but it's like he knows my favorite show is on TV and that triggers something in his little head to come and stare at me until I play with him.

So here's a photo of who was staring at me last night :)

Which curtain?
Aaaaah, help, please! I want to change the bathroom and I can't decided which shower curtain I want to use. Both are shades of grey (get it...)

Which one do you like? Thanks!

Zip Line FUN!
Have you seen this at the Milwaukee County Zoo yet? It's the zip line and ropes course that you see right when you walk in. Well yesterday at Zoo a la carte, I tried it and it was FUN! (My husband, Aaron shot the video)

My Grandma
My Grandma passed away last year in July and one of the things my Mom gave my sisters and I were some of her old handkerchiefs.

She would always have one folded up in her purse and they were all so colorful. One of the handkerchiefs looked so cool and unique. My sister had the idea of getting it matted and framed.

Finally, after a year of having this on my "to do" list, I made it into the framing store and here is the final product!

I love it and it really adds a personal touch to my home. Miss you Grandma!

Navy Week!
Navy Week just wrapped up in Milwaukee and my husband Aaron and I were able to go on a tour of the USS Dewert.

This ship was incredible. It was so fast and extremely large. The weapons on the ship were insane. The majority of the missions that this ship goes on are to prevent drug trafficking and to stop pirates.

These men and women of our military make so many sacrifices to keep us safe to help make this world a better place. I am in awe of their courage and their ability to put their life on the line for me and my family!

Allergies BLOW!
Are your allergies bothering you? Mine were killing me. I finally went to the doctor and I had to have a breathing treatment.

I'm finally feeling better, but wow...this dry summer has been killing me!

Oak Creek
Like many of you, I was shocked and saddened when I heard about the horrific shooting in Oak Creek at the Sikh Temple. But not just as a member of the southside community, but also because I'm a wife of an Oak Creek Firefighter/Paramedic.

My husband Aaron was off that day, but one of his closest friends, Jim (also an Oak Creek Firefighter), was not off and the Temple is near Station 3 where Jim works.

Aaron received a text at 11:11am to report into the station for backup. When he left the house, I was sick to my stomach. Because at that time all of the rumors were spreading on Twitter, Facebook and the Internet that there could be hostages and even the possibility of multiple shooters.

I sat on my couch talking on my phone to family and friends who were asking about Aaron while I was glued to my TV. It was so surreal to see so many familiar places, streets and even seeing OCFD on CNN. How could this have happened in my community? Who would do this? Will the first responders be safe? What is this world coming to?

These are all questions I was aksing myself as my heart was breaking for the people directly involved in this horrible situation.

The Oak Creek police department who responded to that shooting on Sunday are heroes. Even though they probably don't want to be called that because in their eyes they were only doing their jobs, it takes a unique type of person to put their own life in danger to help save the life of someone else.

I'm proud of the men and women who were the first responders on that scene and I'm proud to be a wife of an Oak Creek firefighter.

To help the victims of the Sikh Temple shooting visit WeAreSikhs.com or call Tri City National Bank in Oak Creek at 414-761-1610.

Who is this guy?
Look what I found yesterday in my front lawn before I cut the grass - it's a naked man, well a naked doll.

I was cracking up when I saw this. He even has a drawn on "butt chin."

So what do I do with him?? Ask every neighbor kid if he belongs to them or just sit on back patio and offer him a drink?

I think I'll offer him the drink, he's kind of cute.

They're Stripes and You've Earned Them
Rachel Hollis is a 32-year-old mom of three, and she's not afraid to wear a bikini to the beach. She writes a lifestyle blog called The Chic Site, and used it to share an Instagram picture of herself on the beach in a two-piece, and she's inspiring women around the world to celebrate their mom-bods. "I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini," she wrote. "I have a belly that's permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy... (which is something I didn't even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I'm proud of this body and every mark on it." Check out the picture, and the rest of what she has to say.     I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that's permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy... (which is something I didn't even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I'm proud of this body and every mark on it. Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could. I wear a bikini because the only man who's opinion matters knows what I went through to look this way. That same man says he's never seen anything sexier than my body, marks and all. They aren't scars ladies, they're stripes and you've earned them. Flaunt that body with pride! #HollisHoliday A photo posted by Rachel Hollis (@msrachelhollis) on Mar 21, 2015 at 9:21am PDT

Thanks, Obama!
This could be one of the most bizarre stories ever. A woman is suing the City of New York after she was locked up unnecessarily in a psychiatric ward for eight days following the confiscation of her car by the authorities. She admits she got a little high-strung while trying to get her BMW back from the police, but when she tried to prove what an upstanding citizen she was by showing that Barack Obama followed her on Twitter, she got locked up. Here's the kicker - turns out that @BarackObama does follow her on Twitter - except it's not POTUS, it's one of his campaign non-profit organizations. Still, eight days in the psych ward and a bill for $13,000 for the stay seems a bit much, don't you think?

Pranking for Lenovo
Ashton Kutcher's roots are in pranks. You of course remember his Punk'd on MTV. And he's also the pitchman for Lenovo computers. So why not take the two and put them together Down Under? Great idea. And that's exactly what he did. Watch what happens when Ashton goes undercover in an Australian department store, pitching the new Lenovo tablets to unsuspecting customers...

Got a Drone and a Lot of Spare Time?
It's amazing how inventive some folks can be. Take Oliver C... He's a YouTuber, probably from France, who designs flying objects with the help of drones. His latest creation is an imperial star destroyer from Star Wars. All you need is some foam, some aluminum and a remote-control drone, and you too could be the king of the geeks in your neighborhood...

Son of Coach?
NBC announced that it has ordered 13 episodes of Coach, starring Craig T. Nelson. You might remember that Coach, starring Craig T. Nelson, ran on ABC for nine seasons, ending in 1997. Yes, it's the same show, 18 years later. It picks up sort of where the original ended. Coach's adopted son is now a coach, and Coach has to deal with that. No word yet on whether other original cast members will return, since nothing's been written yet. The whole thing was settled in a pitch meeting... Seems almost too easy, doesn't it? Here's a fun little clip of Craig T. Nelson meeting the Coach from the Toyota ads a couple of years ago, talking about that show they both loved so much...

Now Playing, Sauce Castillo!
The people who do closed captioning for sporting events have a rough job. Hear it and type it, hear it and type it. They do their best to get it right, but sometimes, they're blunders are epic. Take this one. Nik Stauskas is a guard for the Sacramento Kings in the NBA. Except according to the closed-caption operator the other night, his name is actually SAUCE CASTILLO. It could easily have been one of those things no one noticed, but someone did, and now it's Nik's new name. Check out the video on the Kings' website. And check out what Nik had to say about it on Twitter, where the name has gone a little viral...   Wait what does "Sauce Castillo" mean? Since when was that my nickname lol!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ — Nik Stauskas (@NStauskas11) March 26, 2015

That Knot is Tied
Country star Jason Aldean tied the knot last Saturday with Brittany Kerr. Yesterday, Brittany made it official by posting a picture of herself wearing a "Wifey" shirt to Instagram.     โค๏ธ A photo posted by @brittanylkerr on Mar 25, 2015 at 12:45pm PDT The wedding was held in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. And in the You-Can't-Make-This-Stuff-Up Department, the nuptials were officiated by Willie Robertson. Yes, that Willie Robertson - the one from Duck Dynasty.

Nice to Meet You - You Are Dismissed
I guess everyone has a breaking point. It's got to be rough when you're on a publicity junket halfway around the world and reporters start asking silly questions. Take for instance Cate Blanchett. She was in Australia on a show called The Project to promote her new film, Cinderella. The report kept asking off-topic questions, and Cate had to keep steering him back to the purpose of her visit. And then he asked how she got a cat in the movie to do what she wanted it to do. And that's when she snapped. Check it out.

Defect & Head for the Border
Taco Bell launched a new ad campaign yesterday to promote its breakfast menu. And it's taking aim right between the eyes of a certain clown who routinely provides the "same same same" breakfast. The long-form ad looks as gray as anything George Orwell ever envisioned, and it has a feel like the Divergent films. Check it out. Unless you're afraid of clowns. Then you might want to think twice...

And Now, It's Two Direction
You can thank One Direction for the high-pitched wailing coming from your local high school yesterday afternoon. That's when they made it official: Zayn Malik is leaving the group, and it's permanent. A week ago, Zayn stopped touring, saying he was stressed. Now, he wants to be a "normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight." I'm sure that will happen... Meanwhile, One Direction will continue to tour and record without Zayn. Which is a pretty normal reaction for a bunch of 22-year-olds, don't you think?

A for Effort, But We'll Call This a Fail
You've got to give this guy credit. A motorist traveling on Interstate 5 outside Tacoma, Washington was using the car-pool lane. To legally do that, you have to actually have at least one passenger. This guy did - except it wasn't a real passenger. It was a cardboard cutout of the Most Interesting Man in the World. You know, the white-bearded guy from the Dos Equis ads? A state trooper noticed, and pulled the guy over. The punishment: $124 fine. The reward: this very cool tweet from the Washington State Patrol. I don't always violate the HOV lane law...but when I do, I get a $124 ticket! We'll give him an A for creativity! ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿ‘ pic.twitter.com/hNbQDuBWfc — Trooper Guy Gill (@wspd1pio) March 24, 2015

How Do You Get a Late Night Talk Show, Anyway?
James Corden debuted his new late night talk show Monday on CBS. He's the guy who took over Craig Ferguson's spot on The Late Late Show. You might know him as the Baker from the recent theatrical release, Into The Woods. And now he's hosting a late night talk show. How does that happen? Here's how. A rare behind-the-scenes look at how a new kid on the block gets a network TV slot.

Crying Piccolo Girl Goes Viral
Roxanne Chalifoux got national attention over the weekend at the Villanova/ North Carolina State game in the first round of the NCAA basketball tournament. A piccolo player in the Villanova band, she was caught on TV, playing through her pain at the end of the game, which Villanova lost by 3 points. All of a sudden, she was a star. So it's only natural that Jimmy Fallon would have her on The Tonight Show, and even better, she sat in with the show's house band, The Roots. Check it out...

Patti LaBelle Dishes Up Some Salsa
Dancing with the Stars is back, and once again, its mix of stars is eclectic. Take, for instance, 70-year-old Patti LaBelle. The singer's spent 50 years in the music industry, and now she's on TV, strutting her stuff with her partner, Artem Chigvintsev. You'd expect to see her dance to something a little slower, maybe one of her own songs. No, she chose 50 Cent's "In Da Club," salsa-style. And this after injuring her knee while rehearsing a day earlier. Nicely done, Patti, nicely done...

Mulder & Scully, I Presume?
The folks at Fox delighted a whole lot of people yesterday, with confirmation that The X-Files will be returning. The show about a couple of FBI agents investigating the paranormal went off the air 13 years ago, and fans have been clamoring for a rebirth ever since. Now it's official. A six-episode "event" is on the way, starring David Duchovny as Agent Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson as Agent Dana Scully. The show's creator, Chris Carter thinks of the time off as "a 13-year commercial break,” according to the Fox.com website. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.” Production begins this summer...

Superhero Soccer, Anyone?
Ever wonder what would happen if you put Superman and Spiderman and Iron Man and some X-Men on the same soccer field? Not to worry - it's been done. La Casa de El posted this video last week, showing how teams are preparing for the next World Cup. Interesting teammates, to be sure.   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.0"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Preparaciones para el próximo Mundial, con "Superhero Soccer" y la canción "My turn" de Shaun Canon y Chief Wakil.

Uptown Funk, Hogwarts Style
"Uptown Funk" is fast becoming the year's most parodized song. Next up, a parody that would make JK Rowling proud. Well, maybe. Say hello to "Dark Lord Funk," performed by none other than Lord Valdemort. Pretty nicely done, even managing to loop the Harry Potter theme into the mix in spots...

Pretty Woman + 25
It's the movie that made Julia Roberts a household name. It's hard to believe that Pretty Woman was released in 1980, but there you have it. And to hear the story told, it almost didn't happen. Matt Lauer interviewed four of the cast members - Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Hector Elizondo and Laura San Giacomo - plus director Garry Marshall on yesterday's Today Show. Julia and Richard did most of the talking, and it's fun to see that their chemistry still works.   Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Worst Movie Promo Ever
Have you been caught up in the Sharknado frenzy? For some reason, the first two Sharknado TV movies broke all sorts of viewership records. So naturally, Sharknado 3 is coming to our small screens this July. This time, David Hasselhoff - a guy used to spending some time on the beach in a Speedo, not that beaches make a difference in these movies - will be a featured player. And he took some time recently to talk to the folks at HuffPost.com about the experience. He says it's "the worst movie you have ever seen." It's hard to tell if he's the advance man for a brilliant marketing effort, or the worst promo guy ever. I'm leaning toward the latter. How about you?

TaylorSwift.porn?
That's right. You read it correctly. Taylor Swift now owns a pornography site. No, not for that reason. On June 1, ICANN - the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers - will be expanding the number of Top Level Domain names - which currently include the old familiars like .com and .net - to also include .porn, .sucks, .adult and more. But before June 1, brands have the opportunity to tie up those internet suffixes that might be associated with the brand name. Enter Taylor Swift - among others. She bought up TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult. Think of it as a preemptive strike against people who would likely do some nasty stuff with those addresses...

The Pizza for the Pope on the Run
When the Pope visited Naples over the weekend, he got a nice little surprise. As his Popemobile traveled along a coastal road lined with spectators, an enterprising pizzaman ran up to the car and delivered Francis a nice pie. One for the road, you could say. The yellow cherry tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella pizza came from Pizzeria Don Ernesto. Yellow and white are the colors of the Vatican, so the toppings makes sense. The best part of the video is watching the security guys on the back of the Popemobile do nothing...

Tom Cruise Goes #RogueNation
You've got to wait until the middle of summer - July 31, to be precise - but Tom Cruise and the Impossible Mission Force are coming back to a theater near you. This one is called Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation, and an official trailer was released yesterday. Ving Rhames is back, and the rest of the IMF crew is new. As usual, it's hard to tell who's the good guy and who's the bad guy - but that's half the fun.

Good Marketing? That Depends...
You've got to check out this Facebook ad campaign. The folks at Depends want you to "Drop Your Pants for Underwareness." Yeah, that's what they want you to do. So they posted a picture of what appears to be a youngish tattooed guy wearing a Depends undergarment, and let the world of social media drink it in. Half the fun is reading the responses by the Depends people to the posts people are putting up. This is going viral... Oh, and if you really feel like it, you can sign up for a free sample.   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.0"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Depend.

Mom & Pole & Baby Make 3
Ashley Wright is an attaching parent. I guess that means she attaches her child to herself as she goes about her daily business. She even blogs about it, using the pen name Ms. Wright. Earlier this month, she posted a video, showing herself pole-dancing with her two-year-old daughter strapped securely to her back. We're not talking about stripper pole dancing, but the kind that a lot of women are using for core training. And not the kind of thing you should be doing, I'm thinking, with a baby strapped to your back. Check out the video, see what you think...
