Lost my mind yesterday, you guys. Snow finally got to me. The proof.....
My saving grace was the wonderful group of KRZ winners I got to chill with at Salon You in Taylor for our Monday night SPARTY! Check out our purdy painted piggies & digits.....
And BIG THANKS to The Dress Lounge/Bratty Natty's in Kingston for dressing me for the Valentine's Party at River Grille on Friday! I was the hostess, and I had nothing to wear. Nothing. Well, unless you count gym shorts and a Quiet Riot t-shirt but that's more a Christmas outfit....(?).... LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL DRESS!!!
Thank you for all the "welcome back" messages in our text club this week! I was hosting Shiprocked Cruise last week with my rock radio show (The Tour Bus in NYC). Went all over the Bahamas with some of my favorite bands, emceeing shows, hosting meet & greets, even got to perform a little bit! Awesome fun!!! A few pics to share...

last night of the cruise, that's me singing in front - what an honor to jam with all these AMAZING MUSICIANS!!!
Here’s the thing about New Years resolutions: you're NOT capable of making massive life changes just because it's a new year. You're capable because you're awesome. You were AWESOME LAST YEAR, and you're AWESOME THIS YEAR! So realize it!!!! Be you. You're the youiest you that ever you'd. Own it. Love it. You can always improve yourself if you want it bad enough.
That being said, here's how you know you're NOT quitting smoking in 2014: if you trundle outside ANYTIME in the next two days to suckle at your cancery teet, when it's colder than a polar bear's nutsack - you're screwed. I'm sorry. Focus on learning to crochet or something.
Best of luck in this new year! Here’s a pic of me and my dear friend ringing in 2014 in NYC. I’m the one in the stupid hat. I know – you figured.
First time in my life forgot to shut my phone off during church on Sunday! MORTIFIED!! My "Super Freak" Rick James ringtone went off during the sermon ...Coincidentally the lesson was about a bible chick who married seven dudes. A very kinky girl. The kind you don't take home to mother...
We sang the Star Spangled Banner before the service in honor of Veterans Day. Teared up thinking of my Grandpa, my favorite WW2 vet. Miss him so much!!! (He's back in Michigan, not gone for good. Didn't mean to make that sound morbid). Did you see on the news yesterday where President Obama visited that 107 yr old WW2 veteran? VERY cool. Things only got a little awkward when he made the guy purchase maternity healthcare coverage.
This just in... no longer snowing in Scranton. I'm gonna make a grass angel. Cuz my Grandpa fought for my right to flail on the lawn. God Bless the USA!
Never in my life have I felt more like an athlete. And never in my life have I had more than a hundred people yell "Run Forrest" as I pass them on the street.... Haaa. The NYC marathon was an unbelievable experience! Next to skydiving, the biggest rush of my life! Our Ryan's Run 4 team raised over $296,000 (not a typo) for Allied Health Services to help kids and adults with disabilities. I couldn't be more proud. Only got a few pics. But wanted to share....

my MEDAL!!! ............(yes, every runner gets one... but still)
Our FUNDRAISING totals! Go Northeast PA!!!!! Your donations made this possible - THANK YOU so very much! xo
So Friday was my birthday. Turned 87 years old (Oil of Olay - endorsement opportunity hellooooo).... had the best birthday weekend since I was eight and got a Janet Jackson album from my aunt (played it til it broke). Something I've realized in my old age: great friends are even better than Janet Jackson albums. No, really, I know Design Of A Decade was good, but check out what was waiting for me first thing Friday morning from my friend Shannon....
haaaaaaaaa sexy, no?
THEN I got to see Jeffrey Ross's comedy show at the Kirby with my friends Nicole & Jenis Friday night, and SAMMY HAGAR on Saturday!! Yeah, we were front row - I'm not ashamed to say I totally lost my mind!!!!! Check this view....
ROCK CANDY BABY!!!
Jenis, Desiree, and Me :) goofballs. LOVE these chickas. What a perfect birthday weekend!! Now on to NYC marathon (Sunday). New year = new reasons to smile!
Thanks to the Kirby Center for an amazing Alice Cooper show the other night, and for letting me hang out with my idol backstage for a bit. He met me two other times, and even remembered me! Wowsa. AND remembered when we interviewed him on my rock radio show last year. Blew my mind!!!
Forget no more mister nice guy! He is the NICEST celebrity I've ever met!
Thank you EVERYBODY who made it to Bras Across The Bridge last night!! Raised a few thousand dollars for breast cancer (we'll have the final tally Monday) and enjoyed a wonderfully heartwarming evening of fellowship in our "pink" community! I'm sorry in advance there are so many pics, but I didn't wanna leave anybody out! This group = SO amazing :)
I think we did some good here, folks! Smile to yourself knowing you made a difference!!
Just wanted to show love to some BEAUTIFUL local celebs I met over the weekend - the kids at Keystone Extreme Allstars (cheer team) and United Sports Academy (athletic acrobatic team). They were with me at our block party at the Viewmont Mall and they absolutely BLEW ME AWAY with their performances!
And the kids were so kind to each other - the Keystone Extreme team watched while United Sports Academy was doing their demonstration and vice versa. VERY nice to see such good sportsmanship in young people! Check out their awesome pics! And if you can, join me for United Sports Academy's 5K Run/Walk for the Kids! Here's the info:
