John and I decided we are going to be people who send out Christmas cards. Since we just got married, we sent out "Married & Bright" cards with our wedding photo in it this year. After watching this awesome Christmas CARD VIDEO, I'm thinking we're going to need to step up our game next year. Even though this video is really just for self promotion for their new business, I'm still obsessed with this adorable family and this awesome video... not gonna lie, I've already watched it 6 times today.
Yesterday I heard from my buddy Brian Coe at the WBS Penguins. He wants to give Pens fans a chance to help give back to the community.
Here's how it works:
Want tickets for the Friday November 29th game at the Arena? Call the Pens at 570-970-3607 and mention 98.5 KRZ, Rocky & Lissa, Thanks 4 Giving or the Soup Kitchen. $4 from every ticket purchased will go directly to help feeding the hungry at the St. Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen in Wilkes-Barre.
It's an easy way to help during this holiday season.
Again, call 570-970-3607 and ask for the Soup Kitchen deal.
Or, CLICK HERE to order your tickets online from The Penguins.
I wanted to send out a quick reminder to all our KITCHEN CREW volunteers. Next Tuesday, November 26 is the day. We'll provide aprons & gloves. Please bring any kitchen utensil you might have to do the slicing & dicing. And don't forget to set your alarm!!!
If you missed the deadline to volunteer, here's how you can still help:
This year the ST. VINCENT DEPAUL SOUP KITCHEN in Wilkes-Barre will be serving Thanksgiving to over 250. And nearly 1000 meals will be delivered to the homebound.
We would LOVE to have you stop by while we broadcast live next Tuesday 5:30-10a with a non-perishable food or cash donation. Pies are also needed for the Thanksgiving meal.
And if you'd like to volunteer Thanksgiving day to deliver meals, call the kitchen at 570.829.7796.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!
St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen
39 East Jackson Street
Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701

Check out the winner's of our SANTA'S LITTLE HELPER contest at the Mall at Steamtown Friday night! These 3 lucky kids get to help Santa in the Downtown Scranton Santa Parade this Saturday, November 23rd.
All was going well until I decided to get into the picture.
The Mall at Steamtown was all ready for Santa's arrival. This year's tree looks amazing!!! And we had an awesome crowd too!
Volunteers are also needed for the day of the parade. You can actually walk with one of the giant balloons in the parade. Contact the parade committee at 570.483.8757 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oh yeah. Since I am the Grand Marshall in the parade this year, I've got special access to the Jolly Fatman. Let me know if you want me to put in a good word for you. Fishboy is still working Santa for a Red Ryder BB gun.
This morning my Twitter feed (@AmandaOnAir) BLEW UP with tweets about the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly. For months we've been speculating who will play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie and many fans of the book were disappointed with the annoucement of the actors who were cast. I just kept saying ... "let's wait and see what they look like together and on camera." I feel like we have to have SOME faith in the casting directors because a lot of riding on this film after the success of the books.
Ok, so "let's wait and see" has finally COME. A little bit. Today we get to see them in print, which is a fun first step. Follow this link to see the first look at Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in character as the S&M couple Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
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!
