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.

"Not to Be Sexist, But..."
Star Wars has a Facebook page. If you knew that already, you could be a Star Wars geek. But that's not important right now. One of the characters in the much-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens is Captain Phasma, played by Gwendolyn Christie who also plays Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones. The Star Wars folks are having an art contest, inviting people to submit drawings of characters from the upcoming film. (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=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Feeling inspired by Phasma? Your Star Wars: The Force Awakens-inspired art could land you a spot in a professional art... Posted by Star Wars on Thursday, August 27, 2015 That's one artist's conception of Captain Phasma, and the reaction to it was pretty good. Until one guy - probably one of those internet trolls - posted a comment: "Not to be sexist, but it's really hard to tell that's female armor for me." First off, nothing good is ever followed by the phrase "not to be sexist, but..." Second, it's armor. Not designed to be curve-hugging. As the Star Wars pagemaster pointed out: "It's armor. On a woman. It doesn't have to look feminine." In order words, back off, Jack. Don't make me flick on my lightsaber!

Whale Watch Play-by-Play
This is some incredible footage taken from a show called Big Blue Live on BBC One's BBC Earth in England. Steve Backshall was interviewing a whale expert while on a whale watch when his helicopter camera crew let him know that a blue whale - the biggest animal on the planet - had been spotted nearby. This all happened live, and Steve got absolutely breathless with his play-by-play as the giant mammal sucked in lungsful of air prior to diving below the surface to feed for a bit. Amazing, really, in so many ways. Check it out... (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=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); The moment we spotted a blue whale - LIVE! GROUNDBREAKING TV MOMENT! Steve Backshall is interrupted by a blue whale live on BBC One for BBC Big Blue Live. During an interview with whale expert Dorris Welch, Steve has to intervene and cut live to a BLUE WHALE! Posted by BBC Earth on Monday, August 31, 2015

Breakfast All McDay
McDonald's announced yesterday that it will be serving breakfast all day long. That's a nationwide move starting on October 6, following what must have been a successful test run in San Diego that started in the spring. McDonald's see the all-day breakfast as a way to goose slumping sales. Time will tell. Back when the test program began in San Diego, it was greeted with a bit of skepticism. Like from The Late Late Show's James Corden, who had this to say about it on April Fools Day...

The Name is Street... Too Street
Talk about poor choice of words. Anthony Horowitz, the guy currently in charge of writing new James Bond books, was on a promotional tour for his latest work, and the subject of Idris Elba came up. Idris, who's got a string of movie and TV credits, is thought to be a frontrunner to replace Daniel Craig as the next 007. Horowitz had this to say: “For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond.” Wow. For a writer, you'd think he'd choose his words a bit more carefully. The good news is, he did apologize, so there's that...

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained
A Marine named Jarrod Haschett posted a video to all sorts of social media a little over a year ago, hoping to get a date for the Marine Corps Ball in December. An even though it's the Air Force's motto, this Marine aimed high. He wanted to escort UFC fighter Ronda Rousey to the ball. The video got close to 5 million hits. And guess what? Ronda saw it, and said yes. All Jarrod has to do is find dates for Ronda's three girlfriends. I think Jarrod's "hoo-ahh!" could be heard around the country.

Ah, the White Knight After All
So Donald Trump took to Twitter yesterday to whine. Well, sort of. He wanted to let the world know that he felt "totally stupid" for "turning down millions of dollars" in campaign contributions. Really? That's what it takes to make him feel totally stupid? Good to know the bar's been set, anyway. I’m turning down millions of dollars of campaign contributions—feel totally stupid doing so, but hope it is appreciated by the voters. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 1, 2015

Say It Ain't So - Please Say It Ain't So
A day after the Video Music Awards, during which Kanye West ran about ten minutes past his alloted two minutes, the folks at TMZ are reporting that MTV wants Kanye to host the show next year. Seriously? I mean, what did we do to deserve that, MTV? We've been good, haven't we? It's bad enough you wouldn't let the guys in the control room cut him off when he went over. It's bad enough one of your execs followed him to his dressing room to tell him how terrific he was. Now you want to put him in as host? Are you prepared for a weekend-long event, MTV? Cuz that's how this is shaping up!

Just a Little Harsh, Wouldn't You Say?
So it looks like Demi Lovato's performance at MTV's Video Music Awards on Sunday wasn't all that well received. She performed outside the theater on a stage set up on there, and the people inside the auditorium watched on monitors. Demi was wearing what's been described as "dominatrix-style" boots and a bedazzled dress. And when Iggy Azalea joined her on stage - well, things didn't get much better. One viewer at home had a pretty harsh tweet about it. Check it out...   loving the demi and iggy performance! pic.twitter.com/0qWitxoxkC — nick. (@XXIPilots) August 31, 2015

Downton Abbey Wrapping Up
Are you ready for it, Downton Abbeyites? Your favorite series is wrapping up this season, which starts September 20. The folks at ITV released this trailer over the weekend. It feels a little sad, but a little uplifting too. Sort of like a rite of passage. What do you think?

Hotel California, Sin Musica
This video's several months old, but I just stumbled on it, and it's worth sharing. An a capella group called Cubanos Acapella performed the Eagles' classic, "Hotel California." No music, except the music created by the performers. Percussion, guitars and more, all created vocally. And it's perfection. Check it out.

"Like That Little Cage is Gonna Help Ya"
Those sharks keep on coming. Check out this video of a monster shark leaping out of the water. You can get a sense of its size from the shark cage's pontoons in the foreground. The best part is the look on the face of the Australian Today Show's anchor and his co-host. They're both completely dumbfounded, and vow never to go in the water again. Check it out.   (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=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); "I'm never going into the ocean again" - KarlWhat. was. that.#Today9 Posted by TODAY on Sunday, August 30, 2015

Hello Again, Denali
Just before leaving for a trip to Alaska, President Obama righted what many Native Americans see as a century old wrong. The name of America's highest peak, Mount McKinley in Alaska, has been changed back to its original name, Denali. In the native tongue, the word means "the high one." The story of how it became known as Mount McKinley - named after President William McKinley, who was only a candidate for the presidency at the time - is pretty funny. A gold prospector came ouf of the Alaskan wilderness, telling stories about the sights he'd seen, including this very high mountain. He decided that it should be named for McKinley, a Republican from Ohio who had never been and never would end up going to Alaska. Makes perfect sense, right? And that's it? Native American groups in Alaska have been fighting for the name change since Alaska became a state in 1959.  Who says bureaucracies move slowly?
