Mother Nature Is Confused
I think Mother Nature is confused? We've had wind chills as low as -25, tomorow the high is going to be 56 and right now it's raining and it's JANUARY!

Instead of snow boots, I had to wear my rain boots this morning. I can't remember when I've ever had to wear the polka-dotted boots during winter...very strange.

Happy Birthday Dad!
Have you ever thrown a surprise birthday party for someone? Let me tell you, it's fun, but stressful at the same time!

Today my Dad turns 60 and we had a surprise birthday party for him on Saturday. I almost had a heart attack when my sister called to say that my Dad was on his way to the house already - which meant he'd be there a half hour early!!!! Thankfully we were able to stall him and we pulled off the surprise!

Happy birthday Dad, thank you for teaching me to follow my dreams and for being my biggest cheerleader! xoxoxo

Rumchata Cupcakes!
My boss brought in the most amazing cupcakes this week at work that his wife, Katie, made!

And they were made with Rumchata, yummy! A lot of people have asked for the recipe and here's what Katie gave me:

Start with 1 box Pillsbury Dark Chocolate cake mix. Instead of 3 eggs, use 4. Instead of water, use RUMCHATA, then add the 1/3 cup oil AND throw in a cup of sour cream and a cup of dark chocolate chips. Mix it all up. Put it in a gallon ziplock bag and cut of a corner for squeezing it into the cupcake tray. (cut the hole big enough to let the chips through!) Bake for approx 18 min. at 350*.

Boo-Hoo I'm Bummed
The Packers season is over and I'm bumming. We had a great run despite some injuries and the mishap in Seattle with the replacement refs earlier in the season.
 
And as a Packers shareholder, win or lose I still love my team. Below is my buddy Sarah doing our "missing man" photo because our boy Donald Driver barely played in the playoff game against San Francisco. Not sure if he'll be back, but it was so much fun cheering for you these past few years Double D that's for sure!

Getting my Butt Kicked
Are you headed to the gym, especially with a new year getting started!

I can't say enough good things about my trainer, Lottie at The WAC downtown! She kicks my butt, that's for sure, but she's motivated me to add elements to my workout...like suspension training with TRX.

It absolutely kills, but I can tell you the payoff is well worth it!
Check out the plank I'm doing here, so hard...but you'll see great results! Good luck with those new year's resolutions! Remember, summer bodies are earned during winter :)

Pee Wee's Back
Pee Wee Herman's coming back. Actor Paul Reubens was on The Tonight Show the other night, and let it "leak" that there's a new Pee Wee movie on the way.

Peter Pan's Clock is Ticking
NBC's live production of Peter Pan is just over a month away - premiering on December 4 - so the PR machine is starting to rev up. Yesterday, The Today Show played host to the new Peter - Alison Williams - and a couple of former Peters - Sandy Duncan and Cathy Rigby. It's always nice when the future meets the past. And this meeting was pretty cool.     Peter Pans Past and Present! Can't believe I got to spend my morning with Cathy Rigby and Sandy Duncan on the Today Show. I asked them as many questions as we had time for. These women (and Mary Martin) inspire me to no end. What an unbelievable honor. #PeterPanLive #OurShadow A photo posted by Allison Williams (@aw) on Oct 10, 2014 at 6:46am PDT And the first promo has been released too - check it out. Does Christopher Walken fit the bill as Captain Hook?

Earning a Black Bear Belt
A video posted to YouTube a couple of weeks ago is going viral these days. Two black bears, taking to the streets of Rockaway, New Jersey and duking it out. The fight starts in someone's front yard, then rolls into the street. Check out the video - but if you're prone to motion-sickness, you might want to pop a dramamine first. See if you agree that the bears sound a little bit like the Three Stooges when they're actually fighting...

Whatcha Up to These Days, Jerry?
Jerry Seinfeld is probably one of the best-known comedians on the planet these days. Certainly in the Top Ten. So what's he been up to lately? From the looks of this promo, he's been busy taping his web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. He picks up a comedian in a classic car, and they zoom off to have coffee and chat. Fun concept, fun results. And the new season starts November 6.     (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/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Jerry Seinfeld.

Hey, Nice Gourds!
It's Halloween, and that means it's pumpkin-carving time. Some people just cut triangles out of the pumpkin, scoop out the seeds, toss in a candle, and boom! It's jack o'lantern time. Not this young lady. Not sure who she is, but it looks like she submitted her photo to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Take a large pumpkin. Cut it in half. Cut out holes for your legs in the bottom half.. Carve out the top, and put it aside. Cut a couple of holes out of the top half of the pumpkin. String those pieces together with candy corn. Put the whole thing on, and you've got a pumpkini     (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/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Too Much Wine on Your Hands?
The wine critic for The New York Times clearly has too much time on his hands. In his column this week, Eric Asimov took the time to point out that Kerry Washington - who plays Olivia Pope on Scandal - is drinking her wine all wrong. His critique: "She habitually grabs goblets by the bulb rather than the stem, as a wine lover would. She never swirls and sniffs, the ritual that non-wine drinkers alternately find amusing, affected, or annoying. She guzzles rather than sips." Someone needs to tell this guy... (1) Olivia's a fictional character. (2) It's probably cranberry or pomegranate juice she's sipping. (3) He should get a life.

Baby Makes Three
Jessica Biel is pregnant. At least, that's what the folks at RadarOnline.com are reporting. Jessica and her hubby, Justin Timberlake, are expecting a child in another seven months or so - the first for both of them. Like any good reporter, I had to find another source before reporting this news. And looky here - HipHollywood.com had the story six days earlier. So it's got to be true, right? I mean, if HipHollywood.com says so, and then RadarOnline.com says so without saying that HipHollywood.com said, so, then it's got to be true. That's the fourth law of journalism, I believe.

What Wine, What Candy?
It's an annual adult dilemma: what wine goes best with which candy? Fret no more - the folks at vivino.com have come up with the Ultimate Guide to Pairing Wine with Halloween Candy. Your prayers are now officially answered. Skittles, for instance, go with a dry white or a sweet white. Kit Kats go with sparkling wines or a medium red. A dessert wine goes with just about any sort of candy - which you'd expect. And poor little Sour Patch Kids - they pretty much go with nothing. Now we know what makes them sour...
