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.

If you'd like to donate to this wondeful organiztion who helps families dealing with domestic violence, please click here.

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 has the best shirtless body?

Who do you think has the best body, shirtless? Ryan Lochte, Justin Timberlake, Seal???

There is a new, fun online study being done by popsugar.com asking you to pick who has the "Best Shirtless Body." No surprise, mine came down to U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte.

Click here to take the study.

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.
