1.31 Two local guys pulled off a HILARIOUS prank! VIDEO!
 In studio today we had two local guys in. They were featured in the #1 video on TruTV's Top 20 Most Shocking Practical Jokers Gone Wild! Jason's buddy Mark loves kids, but is deathly afraid of a poopy diaper. Jason filled a diaper with pudding ... just wait until you see how Mark reacts!

1.30

Ohhh hey! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! Boyfriend and I went to visit his parents in NJ ... which is why I made these! Valentine cake pops! Actually, making these, I used the cake pop maker I got for Christmas for the first time and it works incredibly ... and saves me 2 days of PREP! A few months ago I wrote out step by step directions how I make and molded the cake pops on my own, but this little maker thing I got for Christmas saves SO MUCH time and turns out a perfectly round cake pop every time!


Have you seen this video?!? This teen girl can repeat any word BACK TO YOU, BACKWARDS! It's incredible. She's freaking amazing.

1.27 Check out this local band!
If you're into supporting the local music scene ... The Sunset Villains just released a video for their song "The Sky is Falling" and well ... Jeff and I have been watching on repeat all morning. The video was even shot here in Drums!

I know this is old news ... but wow
I know this old news ... but i've never NEEDED the magic this stick can perform ever ... until THIS MORNING! On my way to PA LIVE this morning, I stopped at Starbucks. I just couldn't wait to get a sip of the piping hot deliciousness ... so I took the little green stopper out of the lid, took a sip, looked down, and realized I dripped coffee all over my white t-shirt. Not just one little spot ... multiple spots. This happens to me more often than I like to admit, but this time was brutal ... I was on my way to our weekly TV taping! I pulled into Rite Aid and bought a TIDE TO GO stick. I've heard they work wonders, but i've never been in a pinch and needed to use one before. OH MY GOSH. A few blots and 10 minutes to dry ... my shirt was white again! 

I dedicate today to Tide. Rocking my world ... and helping me to not look like a total slob. :)

1.25 Old Navy Outfit of the Week
It's Wednesday ... don't forget to check out Email Wednseday on PA LIVE with Jeff and I today at 4 on BRE ... and the OLD NAVY Outfit of the Week! I went bright with a rustic orange blazer and everyone is obsessed with Jeff's shirt ... it's NEW at Old Navy in Wilkes Barre this week! By the way, my accessories are from Old Navy too ... they are BRINGING IT in the accessory department lately! See bracelets below! On Email Wednesday, what would you do if you bought a house and while renovating, found over $20,000 in cash in the attic ... would you tell the previous owner?


Since these weren't pictured, I had to show you! Cute, right? I'm not usually an orange person, but i'm stepping out of my comfort zone!


Tomorrow is the big day ... Jeff and I are cutting 2 seemingly willing women's hair in the studio. I think i've got this in the bag and will totally do a better job than Jeff ... UNLESS I get stuck with someone with unruly curly/frizzy hair, then we're in trouble. Products, products, products! Pics and video will follow. XO

Did all of my fellow Lifetimer's watch Drew Peterson Untouchable this weekend??? It was amazing ... until it hits you that it's a true story ... which then makes you sick. If you missed it, set the DVR. They are sure to replay it 1,000 times this month, in true Lifetime style.

The Patriots/Ravens game was enough to make a girl stop breathing. Right up to the last minute. I feel really bad for the Ravens kicker though, that poor guy is NEVER going to live that bad kick down.

Boyfriend and I hit Camelback for some fun in the snow on Saturday. While I really want to learn how to snowboard, we went for tubing instead. Boyfriend is a much better snowboarder than I am and it's just not as much fun when you're the one with your butt on the ground every 30 seconds. I'll get there, but we opted to big-kid-sledding at the tubing park.  They have photographers up on the mountain with you (doesn't that sound like an awesome job??!) Of course, I wanted to buy the photo for our scrapbook. :)

1.20 PANERA has a DRIVE THRU!
How awesome is this? Panera in Dickson City now has a drive thru! I was up visiting our friends at The Ski Corner this morning and saw the signs! I was a bit skeptical at first, thinking the drive thru would be a trick and not offer the full menu ... but no ... you can order everything outside that you can order inside! Got my asian sesame salad - through the window! Woooo! I had to share. Fellow panera lovers ... REJOICE! When you're in a rush, they'll toss you a panini while you sit in your car!


By the way, The Ski Corner is still fully stocked with all winter outwear and ski/snowboard accessories and equiptment ... their selection is incredible! Boyfriend and I are heading to Camelback tomorrow ... so as Scott at The Ski Corner would say, "Get your STEEZE on." Steeze is style in snowboarder talk. I'm learning. Slowly. :) Have a great weekend! xo

1.17 These surprise wedding dances are my favorite!
Although it seems like every week or so a new video like this pops up ... I can't get enough. How freaking sweet is this guy? He surprised his bride with a whole routine at the wedding! I don't even care that it's Justin Bieber ... guy has moves!

1.17
While I had really good intentions of using yesterday to do some crafting ... LIFETIME sucked me in, yet again. There was a movie on called "Dawn Anna" about a single mom who ends up having brain surgery. There's a love story mixed into the storyline and just when you think the family has gone through all they can take ... another huge OUT OF NOWHERE twist comes at the end. If you haven't seen it, I won't ruin the emotional twist at the end. There must be something wrong with me ... I always choose to watch the movie or show that's going to stir up emotions and eventually lead me to cry. I always go for the emotion-packed film. Good thing I don't see a psychiatrist, they'd probably tell me to quit putting myself on an emotional rollercoast via tv watching every day.

I did do a little scrapbooking though. Boyfriend's parents gave me Christmas themed scrapbooking stuff on Christmas, so I did 2 pages of Christmas and a New Year's page. To be honest, I don't really even know if i'm doing it right ... or if there's a right or wrong way. I love the concept of scrapbooking, but i've never seen anyone else's finished product. I do know that it takes A LOT of time to do a single page the way i'm doing it.

Overall it was a pretty uneventful weekend .... althought I did go to a really nice baby shower on Sunday for a girl here at work. Can I just say ... all baby showers should serve alcohol. A nice glass of wine or punch over a game of baby bingo is just totally delightful. That's exactly what she had at her shower and it was perfect. Knowing me, I might even service baby pink or baby blue jello shots when it comes time for me to have a little person. :) Ok, maybe that's going a little too far.

1.12 Bitch and Brag
Is it just me, or does it seem like the weeks are FLYING by lately? I woke up completely unsure of what day it was ... and was then totally delighted that it's Thursday! Friday night is girls night and I can't wait to see some friends I haven't seen in a couple months. If you missed PA LIVE or Email Wednesday yesterday, you can check it out here. Big thanks to Old Navy for dressing us as always! :) In this week's WEEKENDER column, Bitch & Brag, I bragged about my favorite new website, Pinterest. You can read Bitch & Brag at TheWeekender.com or by clicking here! 

I've blocked out some craft time for myself this weekend and i've been trying to pick something out on Pinterest to attempt to do. I'm torn between ATTEMPTING these.

Either LOVE letters covered in cute buttons ...


OR ... a jewelry organizer with decorative drawer pulls ...


Have any of you attempted to make something you saw on Pinterest? How did it come out?

Happy Monday! How are those New Year's resolutions holding up? I made one ... to be more mindful of money and avoid places like Target if I don't "need" anything there. Target is my trap. So far, so good. Get those student loans paid off and move forward with life, that'd be good. :)

I spent Saturday morning hanging with the Girl Scouts at their big COOKIE RALLY at Split Rock! That's right, it's cookie time! Monica from PA LIVE and I were on the same team competing against another team to stack cookies, blind folded taste them, and answer cookie trivia. Let me just tell you ... the new Savannah Smiles girl scout cookie is NOT easy to stack and I failed miserably. Thankfully Monica was a girl scout for 9 years and identified those cookies by taste like a pro! Support your local girl scouts and order some thin mints! :)


Boyfriend and I planned on having a date night on Saturday and went out for dinner and a movie ... but the movie never happened. What are the odds of this ... all of the movies were SOLD OUT ... with like 20 minutes before they were scheduled to start. So yeah, we went to dinner ... and then rented Contagion, which was really good ... but left me with terrible nightmares of men breaking in and stealing EVERYTHING while we just stood by and watched. Friday night I had nightmares of dragons chasing me through a hotel. (I think I need to stop watching tv before bed, like a child, it effects my sleep) If anyone saw The Devil Inside i'd love to know how it was!

1.6 I'm cheating on Facebook.
I've been cheating on Facebook with another equally addicting website. If you're female and you're not on Pinterest yet ... get on board! I've been trying to convince my best friend to join the site for weeks ... and she finally went on to join ... and they put her on a waiting list! There's THAT many people loving Pinterest ... ahhhh that means more users to enjoy their pins! If you've never been on, it's basically this website where people post pictures ("pin") to different categories for people to see. Then if you really like it, you can "repin" it to your categories and wall or "like" it. I'm OBSESSED with party ideas, decorations, do-it-yourself projects, and hair ideas. Pinterest is basically where women go to decorate home they'll never be able to afford, plan parties and weddings they aren't having, and dream of projects for days off that never come.

If you're not on, JOIN!!! It's free, so much fun, and so addicting. Pinterest has become my go-to site for a mental escape. Goodbye facebook!

1.5 Bitch & Brag
Have you gotten a look at the new Weekender this week? I bitch about celebs are their lame attempts at marriage. I mean really, don't you think this is getting a little ridiculous? Kim K's 72 day marriage, Sinead O'Conner and her 16 days of wedded bliss, and now Katy Perry calling it quits? They CAN'T be trying to make it work, so why bother getting married and committing in the first place? If a party is what you're looking to have in a wedding, throw a kegger. Read Bitch & Brags weekly in The Weekender ... or here! http://www.theweekender.com/bonus/bitchbrag/BITCH__BRAG_010412.html

1.3 Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! I found a new appreciation of wishes of good health and happiness this year ...and I wish you all the best in 2012! That being said, having a day off is such a tease. You finally unwind and then bam - it's time to wake up and get back to the grind! New Year's Eve was awesome ... Boyfriend and I went to The Woodlands for their big party and friends came to town.


It's probably about time you get a good look at Boyfriend. :) Here we are on NYE at The Woods! :)



Cheers! To a year of love, laughs, and hopefully LITTLE pain on the Jeff Walker Show! Happy New Year!
