I've been catching up w/ Game of Thrones and I'm a Fan even though Ned is still gone! This has become a popular video that was shown at Comic con over the weekend. The show is so dramatic that sometimes it's forgotten the actors are human too. I love to see bloopers, which is especially entertaining w/ GoTs. Enjoy!
Hey, if you are looking for an AWESOME weekend getaway that is perfect for just about everyone. You've got a family, you want to go somewhere w/ friends or even a getaway w/ your honey, Corpus Christi has Good Times for all! Ted, Huey and I have had lots of 'Good Times' when we've hit the road to Corpus Christi. It's easy to hop in the car on a late Friday afternoon/evening and head to the beach. The area is very family friendly and pet friendly.We stay at the Omni Bayfront Hotel, and since they allow smaller dogs, our Shih Tzu Huey comes too. There is a dog free, but way cheaper and easier than having to worry about having someone watch him/board him in ATX!
There are so many things to do. If you hit up this website- www.visitcorpuschristitx.org you will find all the Good Times that are waiting for you. Of course the more you explore, and chat w/ the locals, you will find even more Good Times. I highly suggest the Texas Aquarium. They have awesome, safe and friendly for animal shows, plus new exhibits each time we've been there. The USS Lexington Battleship is a must see to explore. Hurricane Alley Waterpark is one of the newest Good Time editions. Perfect waterpark to enjoy a day w/ your family/ friends while you're in CC!
I suggest going to the Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi that is right along the shore. Besides some really cool, unusual pieces of art, they have a Fantabulous cafe in the museum that I highly suggest grabbing breakfast or lunch. You can even sit outside and take in the 'AMAZING' scenary of the shore. Many locals go to this cafe, so you know it Rocks! I've found most of the best places to eat, when you are out of town, is where the locals are.
The Omni Baywalk Hotel has an AWESOME breakfast buffet! You'll also find the Republic of Texas Steakhouse that is on top of the Omni Baywalk that is pricey, but yummy. Save room for dessert.. Chocolate Torte... YUM!
Here are some of the many 'Good Times' my family has had in Corpus Christi the past few years, and we look forward to more!!!
Have a Happy Summer filled w/ Good Times! Heather R.

Come celebrate a successful 100 mile walk at The Park at the Domain from 4-7pm. A journey that hopefully will open the doors of communication and help the HEROES who deserve and need it.
THANK YOU for your donations! To the local Austin businesses like SockWorkand its founder Mario for your sock and fiscal donations....
To Dustin owner of NorthSide Fitness in Cedar Park for his time and pationets in training me for the walk! From the bottom of my heart.... THANK YOU!!!
The "Courage Walk" is quickly approaching... I cannot believe my "passion" will come to fruition in just 4 days! While clearly my passion for the Military and my own personal battle with depression are the foundation behind the “Courage Walk.” I firmly believe… in our lives we MUST step outside of our comfort zone and test the limits of our mental, physical, and soul within. The following passage has meant a great deal to me in bringing clearity to my life. I hope it helps you just the same!
“Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”
- Jon Krakauer
Big talk this morning was the steamy trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson (Don Johnson's & Melanie Griffith's daughter) who play leads Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Coming out Valentine's Day Weekend Friday, February 13th. Click here for the trailer.
The trailer is extra steamy thanks to the new sexy version of Beyonce's 'Crazy In Love'. I haven't had a cigarette since '99, but after watching the trailer, I was almost tempted. From the trailer, it reminds me of a ...dare I say 'Throw Back' movie that came out in 1986 starring Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger.... I couldn't look at a refrigerate the same after watching this movie... Here's one for #TBT.. If you have never seen this, check it on your Netflix list. Mickey R was a Hottie in this one...
When you hear Weird Al Yankovic, seems like a #TBT name. W-Al was huge in the'80s w/ his numerous parodies of popular songs. Well, it took him 30 years, but he made it to #1 on the Billboard 200 Album charts w/ his new album 'Mandatory'. W-Al sticks w/ the parodies and does what he does best... POKE FUN at the hits. Here's a taste of what to expect if you add Mandatory in your Ear Candy collection. I'm thinking some teachers/ fun teatchers might think about playing it during class.
Blurred Lines getting poked at by W-Al w/ his song 'Word Crimes'... Something new from a #TBT artist who still has his give on..
The $1000 Cash Code Contest is happening w/ 4 chances to win each weekday... 7am-11am-2pm & 5pm. Get 72881 in your phone so you're ready when the new 'Code Word' is revealed at these times. All the details are here. What would you do with $1,000?
