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!

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.

Chris Pratt Crushed by a Noahsaurus
Chris Pratt visited the Ellen show this week and agreed to play a game of "Dino Right, Dino Wrong" against Ellen's little buddy, Noah Ritter. It was a trivia game about dinosaurs, and given that Chris just wrapped up Jurassic World, you'd expect him to have the edge. Think again. This kid Noah is good. Check out the competition.

How Do You Write "Uh Oh" in Arabic?
On Tuesday, Lindsay Lohan posted an inspirational message to Instagram. On the bottom line, it read "You're beautiful." Above it were some Arabic characters, which everyone took to mean the same thing as the English phrase. Not so much, according to experts. Lindsay had actually written, "You're an ass" in Arabic. Yesterday, she posted this picture of a pocketbook, and referenced the now-deleted message, saying it was an inside joke with a friend. "So, was already known what it was." I'm not buying it. How about you?     FYI- The funny thing is-the Arabic photo I posted was an inside joke w/friend to test my Arabic w/out Google translation. So, was already known what it was. Other than this- I love @maisonvalentino A photo posted by Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) on Apr 23, 2015 at 9:42am PDT

Making FLOTUS's Day
How's this for a nice way for Michelle Obama to start her day? The First Lady was entertaining some children of White House Staffers as part of Bring Your Daughters & Sons to Work Day. One young lady asked Mrs. O who old she was, and when she answered, "51," the girl made a face. Turns out she thought Mrs. O was "too young" to be 51. Guess who got a big hug?

Have Blacks Abandoned Baseball?
Chris Rock did a guest spot on HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, part of the show's 20th anniversary celebration. His topic: why blacks have abandoned baseball. He talks about growing up a baseball fan, when 20% of the players in Major League Baseball were black. Now, that number has dwindled, according to Chris, to about 8%. But it's not about being black, it's about being a baseball fan. Check out the promo, and if you like what you see, you can watch the whole episode here - it's uncensored, so be careful where you watch it or how loud the audio is...

Don't Push Iron Man!
Robert Downey Jr. was sitting down for a series of interviews about Avengers: Age of Ultron. Things are okay for the first four minutes, and then they start to go off the track when the reporter starts asking about RDJ's personal life. You can tell he's very uncomfortable talking about his time in prison and struggling with addiction - "Are we promoting a movie?" RDJ asked. The reporter refused to pick up on that cue and kept dwelling on the personal aspects. Finally, RDJ got upset enough to walk out. And watch the reporter. He doesn't get why...

It's Dropping Trou Coming Around the Post...
Things got a little cheeky in the first rate at the Canterbury race track in Sydney, Australia yesterday when jockey Blake Shinn's trouser elastic snapped as he rode Miss Royale toward the finish line. Even with his backside on full display, he managed to finish second, right in front of a horse named Modesty. This stuff you can't make up. And while it was embarrassing, it didn't affect him much. He won the last race of the day on a horse named Eisenhower. This time, his pants stayed fully on.

Chewing with Chewie
For some reason, people are taking the #TwizzlerChallenge to help raise autism awareness. I don't see the correlation, but if it helps, who am I to question it. You take a Twizzler in your mouth, and place the other end of the Twizzler in your partner's mouth, and chew on it like the two dogs chewing on a strand of spaghetti in Lady & the Tramp. Jimmy Kimmel kicked off Autism Awareness Month at the beginning of April by taking the challenge with Rihanna. And then he challenged Star Wars: A Force Awakens director JJ Abrams to take the challenge - with the biggest hairiest hero of them all, Chewbacca. The other night, the pair stepped up. Check out the video - and who they passed the challenge to...

Kanye Don't Play That
The thought that both Kanye West and Kim Kardashian made the list of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2015 is hard to swallow. Maybe it's because we're only four months in to 2015, and other more influential people won't be stepping up their game until the summer or fall. Whatever. The other night, Time held its 100 Gala in New York, and on the red carpet, comedian Amy Schumer - in my eyes, a deserving recipient of the recognition - threw herself to the ground in front of Kimye. Payback, in some respect, for Kanye's pranks at the Grammys with Taylor Swift a few years ago and Beck a few months ago. And guess what? Kanye didn't like it one bit. He and Kim both frowned at Amy and moved along, not even bothering to help her up.

Dancing with the Crutches
Derek Hough, one of the professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars, got hurt on Monday night, and probably won't be on DWTS for a while. Details are vague, but the injury involved stairs and a light according to his Instagram post. He broke a toe in one foot, and badly sprained the ankle on the opposite leg. He says he'll do what he can to recuperate quickly, but for now, he'll be off his feet.     Performing 10 shows a week at Radio City while rehearsing with Nastia for DWTS, I've never felt more healthy,strong and fit. But then a fluke accident happened that involved a light and some stairs. Can't believe it, wish I had a cooler story to tell. All that dancing , flipping , jumping and the thing that stops me in my tracks is something as simple as a light and some stairs . I'm doing everything I possibly can to have a quick recovery and I'm determined to come back stronger than ever. I appreciate all the love and support, you guys are the best. And thank you to Mark, BC Jean and Corky Ballas for staying with me at the hospital until 2am. Love you . This is new territory for me , I'm usually able to work through injury but this one has literally floored me. But like I said before I'm determined to come back all guns blazing ... soon!!! #setbackisasetupforacomeback A photo posted by Derek Hough (@derekhough) on Apr 22, 2015 at 12:21pm PDT

Full House Coming Back
John Stamos made it official this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Netflix has sealed the deal on the return of Full House to television. So far, according to John, all the original players have signed on - except for the Olsen Twins. But they said in an interview yesterday they'd just heard about it, which means they of course don't have Facebook. There will be 13 episodes in the original run - a one-hour reunion show, spinning off into Fuller House. This one will focus on DJ, a recently-widowed mother of three with a fourth on the way. Sounds fall-down funny already, doesn't it? But, if you recall the original, Danny Tanner's wife passed away young, leaving Danny and his brother-in-law and wacky comic friend to raise three daughters. So who knows? It seems like the world is excited about it, so why not us, right?

Popeye Bye Bye
A shift supervisor at a Popeye's in Texas claims she was fired for refusing to pay back money robbed from the store at gunpoint while she was in charge. Popeye's says that's not 100% true - she was fired for having too much money in the cash register. That would be $400 - according to the woman, about an hour's worth of chicken and biscuits on that particular evening. So let that be a lesson to you: even if you've got 14 customers in line, you tell them all they have to wait, because you've got too darned much money in the register. Y'all come back now, y'hear? I'm surprised they didn't get mad at her for letting the guy jump on the counter.

New Instagram Standards?
Over the weekend, a woman in Scotland posted pictures of herself to Instagram, showing what her belly looked like after delivering twins. Her account was deactivated by Instagram within two minutes, according to most sources, for violating Instagram's decency rules. She's wearing a fairly modest bra and sweat pants. Her belly is fully exposed, showing her stretch marks. This is indecent, according to Instagram. Mostly naked pictures of the Kardashians, on the other hand, are completely okay.

Reds Coach Goes Blue
Bryan Price, manager of the Cincinnati Reds baseball team, is getting a little fed-up with the reporters who cover his team. On Monday, he let loose on them - unleashing 77 F-bombs in the 5-minute or so process. I didn't count them - a reporter for The Cincinnati Enquirer did. He was particularly miffed about a story in The Enquirer that reported a new catcher was on the way to the team that was published - actually, tweeted out - before the old catcher had been informed he was headed for the minors. Feel free to count the number of beeps - because here's the edited version of the tirade, from SoundCloud.

Traveling Through Time to the Top
The new World Trade Center in New York City has created a very interesting journey on its 102-floor elevator ride to the top. It shows a three-dimensional time-lapse history of the tip of Manhattan, starting 515 years ago in 1500 and going right up through today on the 47-second ride. It's a pretty amazing ride.

Do Not Take the Kylie Jenner Challenge
Tweens and teens are doing it with alarming regularity, and they really need to stop. Taking the Kylie Jenner Challenge, that is. Using whatever means possible to try to achieve lips similar to Kylie Jenner's. No one knows for sure if Kylie's lips are naturally the way they look, but if they're not, she's got plenty of money to get them that way. Kids, on the other hand, usually don't, so they're relying on other methods - jars, bottles, cups, et cetera - to try to mimic the look. And it's not going well, causing all sorts of issues, some of which end up with hospital visits. Don't let this happen to you!

Obi Wan Candelabra
Insiders are reporting that Ewan McGregor is in final negotiations to play Lumiere - the candelabra who sings "Be Our Guest" - in the live action version of Beauty & the Beast. He'll be joining Emma Watson as Belle and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, among others. That means B&B will be uniting actors from the Star Wars, Harry Potter and X-Men franchises. Could this mean a Beauty & the Beast franchise is about to be born?

Miley Pastes Two on for Joan Jett
People wondered why Miley Cyrus was asked to induct Joan Jett into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Sunday night. Afterwards, they were just wondering what happened to the rest of her top. In typical outlandish Miley fashion, she wore a top with the breast areas removed - maybe designed to be missing, who knows. And to cover up her sensitive areas, a pair of pink heart-shaped pasties with a J on them. J J - for Joan Jett, get it? Here's a full recap of the Miley Joan moments.

Tidal Wave?
Jay Z's new streaming music service Tidal launched about a month ago. Last week, they threw the company's chief executive officer overboard - one of 25 people laid off. After a month. The official word is that the company is "streamlining resources to ensure talent is maximized to enhance the customer experience." A "handful of positions" were eliminated, allowing the company to refocus on departments that need support and to "cut redundancies." Word is that Jay Z and other of the service's top names have been personally calling subscribers to thank them. That doesn't sound desperate at all...

Tony Romo Continues to Struggle at Home
Bad enough that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo struggles year after year under center for America's Team. On Sunday, he showed up at the Academy of Country Music Awards show to introduce Dierks Bentley. But before he got to that, he had to do a little schtick with hosts Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan. Watch the video, and tell me you wish you hadn't. The crowd loved the ball jokes, deflated and otherwise, which just proves that the beer was flowing in Dallas Sunday night...

Holy Parody, Batman!
You knew it would happen. Following the less-than-impressive drop of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer over the weekend, you knew that folks would start having their fun with it. This one happened sooner than I thought it would though. An enterprising YouTuber took the audio of the real trailer, and mashed it up with video from the original Superman movie starring Christopher Reeve and the old Batman TV series starring Adam West. And it is funny. Super funny.

Kermit's Cousin?
Scientists have found a new species of frog in Costa Rica: the Glass Frog. It's an amazing little amphibian, with a translucent belly that allows one to see its internal organs. Of course, folks in the mainstream media have to dumb it down, so what does this new frog resemble. Why Kermit, the Muppet frog, of course. And leave it to Matt Lauer to put the icing on the dumb-down cake: "How convenient to be able to see all your organs, you know what's missing..."
