Do you like him too?
Are you obsessing over U.S. men's swimmer Ryan Lochte too?

LOVE. HIM. I'm kind of bummed that he didn't win gold in every event he's been in, but he's still adorable.

But did you hear that he wanted to wear is patriotic diamond-encrusted grill when he was on the winner podium receiving his gold medal? A U-S Olympic officaly said that if he wore the grill, he wasn't getting his medal. He chose to accept the medal instead, but it's pretty funny.

Do you golf?
Are you good at golf? I'm not that great, but I try. Yesterday was our company golf outing and Kidd and I usually drive around in the golf carts to say "hi" to people.

One guy was nice enough to use his club and take a swing.Of course I was nervous, everyone was watching and...I totally biffed the shot. It went only 20 yards in front of me. But hey, like my husband always says, at least it went straight.

Maybe I'll just stick to driving the golf cart :)

VIDEO: Packer Shareholders meeting
I was able to go to my first Packer Shareholders meeting on Tuesday at Lambeau in Green Bay! It was awesome. I had goosebumps when the suites came walking and below is the video of everyone cheering when they stepped onto the field.

And check out the new scoreboard in HD, awesome! The construction going on in the south endzone will also add 7,000 new seats. They are calling it the Sound Wall to hopefully give us more of an advantage when the other team is trying to score.

Have you seen this movie yet?
Wow, what a movie! I LOVED "Magic Mike!" Besides the hot guys, it was actually really funny at times.

The biggest surprise for me was how funny Matthew McConaughey's character was in the movie! He played the role of club owner perfectly.

My only complaint, was how it ended. It kind of made me feel like there should have been more to see.  But then I read from actor Channing Tatum that a sequel is in the works...can't wait for it!

LOVE these songs!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these two songs we play on The Mix, "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen and "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Gotye and when I saw that an Indy group did a mash-up between them, I was SO EXCITED!!!

Take a listen, let me know what you think?

Coolest view of Milwaukee
Have you visited Lakeshore State Park yet? If you're like me, you're probably thinking, "where?"

It's one of the newest state parks in Wisconsin and it's on the other side of the Summerfest grounds. My husband Aaron and I walked there for the first time this week and it really is so beautiful and a gorgeous view of the city's skyline.

Just park behind the Marcus Ampitheater and head north, you'll love it! It really is a great way to showcase our awesome city!

Better than '50 Shades' of Grey'???
Now that I'm done with Fifty Shades of Grey my sister (a librarian) suggested I read this book Bared To You by Sylvia Day.

I'm not done with it yet, but it's pretty HOT and just like Christian Grey, the guy has it going on!!!

A brand new color!
What color nail polish do you put on your toes when you get a pedicure?

I went in for mine and I picked a brand new shade. I was tired of all the purples, pinks and reds so I opted for this bronze shade - and I really like it.

Sometimes, change is fun!

A new visitor
Every now and then we have kids that call up and want to visit the studio. Jessica, a 7th grader from East Troy has been trying to schedule a visit to see the radio station for months!

Finally, after weeks of trying to put this on the calendar, she was able to come in and visit with her family and best friend Heather.

She's been listening to The Mix for years and she wants to be on the radio when she grows up. It was a pleasure meeting her and maybe one day we'll be working together.

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?

Drones Dance of Beauty

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...
