Would you pay $400 plus for this?

Happy Friday Eve! I ran across this beauty item that is coming out in September available at Sephora and Dyson's website.

"The Dyson Supersonic, which will retail for $399, has been four years, $71 million, and 600 prototypes in the making. It features four heat settings, a cool shot, and three airflow settings. It claims to be able to stabilize the dryer temperature so it doesn't get too hot, which can cause hair damage, and to control airflow to ensure a fast, controlled drying and styling session."


Yes, Dyson is a vacuum cleaner company, who are jumping into the beauty biz w/ the title in September as being the most EXPENSIVE BLOW DRYER! Of course I'm curious, I'm going to have to find a way to try it out. Click here . You can reserve one too! HR

Officially out on Friday!!!

Blue October's new album 'HOME' is out Friday (4/22)! Besides their SOLD OUT STUBB's show they are doing a FREE in-store performance at Waterloo Records on N. Lamar. It starts at 5pm! But I imagine as LOVED AS BLUE OCTOBER is.. IT WILL BE PACKED! Be prepared! Click here you can check out their performance Mix's 2016WOTF! They of course ROCKED IT!

My new favorite Jam is the title track 'HOME' it reminds me of my Mama Betty & Daddy Maurice growing up. I can imagine them dancing in the kitchen while we were cooking dinner. Kitchen dancing was a holiday cooking tradition in my home, and sometimes it wasn't even a holiday! Actually, Today would have been their wedding anniversary. They made it to 40 years together before my Mama Betty passed away in 2003, and my Daddy Maurice passed away in 2013. R.I.P. to both of them. I Love them both so very much, and my heart hurts when I think about how they aren't with me. (wiping tears) Anyway, I imagine they are celebrating their day today somewhere in a wonderful place where kitchen dancing happens 24/7 if that's what they want.

I think of my parents when I hear Blue October's new single 'HOME'. I want to thank them for creating the song and sharing it with us! I'm a fan for sure! I know my Mama Betty & Daddy Maurice would have kitchen danced to this. You should try it...

Did you know this?

Okay, I just thought.. Hey today is Tax Day.. APRIL 15th! Did you have that same thought? Then you look for the freebies, while you're deciding when to start your taxes (or you could have them done) and discover.. NO TODAY ISN'T TAX DAY! It's Monday, April 18th this year (2016)! It's like a wonderful dream, if you don't have your taxes ready (which I'm sure you do).Why Monday? Click here!

Then I thought, why not scope out the Freebies for Monday, which I found here. Well, this had me discover that April 16- 24 is National Park Week and w/ a special 100th Anniverary happening this year, you can get into any National Park FREE this week! Something (not Free) Fun at the Bullock Texas State History Museum IMAX- 3D ...National Parks Adventure IMAX 3-D goes nicely w/ this week. Click here for more and find your 1Thing at the same time! AWESOME! Who knew moving Tax Day to Monday could create SO MUCH HAPPINESS!

A Letter from Haruka Weiser's Family..

BREAKING: Many news outlets are saying APD have arrested a person they believe is connected to Haruka's death... http://kxan.com/2016/04/08/suspect-in-ut-homicide-arrested/

Haruka Weiser's family
released this letter and it's posted on the UT news site. May their daughter's killer be found soon and may she rest in peace.

As posted on UT News site:

Haruka Juliana Tsunemine Weiser, our beloved daughter, sister and friend was taken from us too soon. We will forever miss her; the pain of our sudden and tragic loss is unfathomable. We are grateful for all the support, kindness and prayers that have been offered to us. Words cannot express the outpouring of love we have received.
Haruka was a passionate and dedicated dancer and student. She was so happy to be a student at UT and was looking forward to the chance to perform again as a Dance Major and she was declaring a second major in pre-med studies, too. She had plans to explore the world of medicine this summer and to travel to visit family in Japan.

Although Haruka loved to perform on stage she never sought the spotlight in her daily life. Perhaps the last thing she would want is to be the poster child for any cause. And yet, as we struggle to understand why she was killed, if her death can somehow make it safer for a young woman to walk home, if it will prevent another assault or murder, then at least we could find some meaning behind an otherwise senseless and tragic death. To her friends, the many of students at UT and at her high school in all the dance programs in which she participated we are united in prayer for Haruka and for each other. No parent, brother, sister or friend should have to face this kind of sadness, this kind of loss.

Yet, many do. And now we have joined that family. At UT, Haruka did make many friends and received so much support from this community. We know Haruka would not wish for us be stuck in sadness but to keep living life to the fullest; that is what we will try to do in the coming days. And we offer prayers and encouragement for you to do the same.

Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time.

This is the video link of the person of interest. There is a $15,000 reward for anyone who has information that leads to Haruka Weiser's killer.

Happy National Walking Day!

This is Great for you and Mama Earth (1Thing)! Here are the tips I ran into so you get the full walking benefits! Huey's a big supporter for walks when he feels like it depends on the day. Sometimes, it may just be standing around looking for people. He switches it up for us. Never a boring moment w/ Huey, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Happy Walking! Heather, honey Ted & Huey!

The first Wednesday in April is National Walking Day. The American Heart Association sponsors this day to remind people about the health benefits of taking a walk. Wear your sneakers (or take them with you) to work and at some point in the day, you are encouraged to take a 30-minute walk.
Here are some great ways to make that 30-minutes more enjoyable:
  • Wear comfortable clothes.
  • Take a friend to pass the time.
  • Make sure to stretch those muscles.
  • Dring plenty of water.
  • Move your arms, too.
  • Make sure you have good posture

You can keep the Walking Rockin' w/ Jay Styles as he kicks off the 100 Mile Courage Walk next Wednesday (4/13) to raise awareness and $$$ for Veterans with Post Traumic Stress w/ the help of Austin Dog Alliance & the Hounds for Heroes program. The money raised will go towards the training and care of service dogs who help Veterans suffering from PTS. On Saturday (4/16) you can help Jay Walk the Last 5K at Old Settler's Park in Round Rock. Donate any amount you would like and walk w/ Jay and Mix 94.7 to help our Veterans. Click here!

Have you seen ATX like this?

This is a 6 month labor of love that was shot in 2015 using the latest in consumer drone technology.
It's cool!
