Do you have a 'BroWomance'?

You've heard the term 'Bromance' !? A good example of a 'Celebrity Bromance' is Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on The Voice... 'Classic Bromance'. Now Hollywood is looking at the 'Womance' with a good example being Courtney Cox & Jennifer Aniston being 'Besties' for over a decade and still working it in Hollywood without their relationship failing... a strong 'Womance' there w/ the 'Bestie' relationship still going strong...

I was thinking about who my 'Bestie' has been for many years... It's my Honey/HubbyTed, which would make him a 'Romance' since we are together/married smiley, but as far as a term for a 'Bestie Friendship'??? What would it be called? A' BroWomance'? wink Whatever it is... w/ Thanksgiving being a week & 2 days away, I'm Thankful everyday I can wake up and be a part of Ted's life and he's a part of mine. Thank you Ted for the 'BroWomance'.... not sure if this word is working?? !!! I really don't have a word if I add my Furry Kiddo Huey in the mix... wait a 'Fam-mance'? Okay this really needs some work, but the Love and thought is totally there. heart

Cheers for Dogs and Drinks!

You Rocks to the crew at Tito's! I Love the 'Holiday Spirit Pack'. I can't wait to make some 'Holiday Adult Beverages'. I was also Happy to see a 2015 calendar. The Dogs and Drinks caught my eye. When I opened it, I saw the adorable 'Casey' ringing in the new year w/ ULTIMATE CUTENESS! This made me investigate more on 'Dogs and Drinks' w/ Titos. http://www.vodkafordogpeople.com/ told the story:

Here at home, we are fortunate enough to share our East Austin neighborhood with Emancipet's original spay/neuter clinic. We deeply appreciate the compassionate care they have provided to the many animals rescued by our Tito's Handmade Vodka family over the years.

Emancipet's unique approach to providing compassionate, high quality care to all animals, regardless of their owners' ability to pay, has played a critical part in making Austin one of the safest and healthiest cities for pets in the U.S.

Emancipet's mission is to make spay/neuter and preventive veterinary care affordable and accessible to all pet owners. They achieve this by opening high-quality, high-volume clinics in communities that lack affordable vet care; supporting and training humane organizations to start or grow their own spay/neuter programs; and advocating for progressive spay/neuter public policy.

Just as Tito's Handmade Vodka has grown to become available all over the country, we are taking action to help Emancipet grow and make an impact in communities outside Austin.

Heads up for the Long Thanksgiving Weekend...

I got a heads up from Neil about UrbanScoot having a great deal available to you for the long Thanksgiving Weekend if you will be enjoying some 'Holiday Spirits'. Here's another option you could use...

UrbanScoot is providing 50% OFF of service from 11-26-14 to close of business on 11-30-14.
With the festivities of the holiday season upon us, UrbanScoot wants to make an effort to keep Austin streets safe from driving under the influence. UrbanScoot will do this by offering 50% OFF of service over Thanksgiving weekend. This offer will begin on Wednesday, November-26-14 until 4a.m. on Monday, 12-01-14. To receive this generous discount, customers can use the promo code: TurkeyScoot.

By using a foldable scooter, UrbanScoot will drive to your location, place the scooter in the trunk, and use it to leave once you and, your vehicle are home. Founded in Austin, UrbanScoot was created by owners, Matt Weber and Justin Recktenwald. "Our goal is to provide a safe option home during a time when celebrations are at an all time high," said Recktenwald. "We just want to do our part in helping people stay safe, so offering a generous discount in the effort of good will might just do that," added Matt Weber.

Nothing dampens the holiday spirit like a car break-in, a DUI arrest, or worst of all, a death that could have been avoided. This service allows customers to enjoy a night out without having to worry about driving under the influence, or leaving their vehicle parked overnight. Customers will wake up alive and well, with their cars conveniently parked at home.

Anyone can easily request service through the UrbanScoot website, calling direct (512-394-7320), or using their mobile app. UrbanScoot is also available for corporate events and private parties. UrbanScoot strives to provide a safe alternative to driving under the influence in hopes of reducing accidents and, fatalities all year around.

Service hours include Monday through Friday 8p.m. - 4a.m. and Saturday through Sunday 1p.m. - 4a.m. UrbanScoot does not have a limit on their service area. UrbanScoot is enthusiastic about recently joining the transportation industry, and is now fully operational.

Happy Veterans Day! Thank You!

HAPPY VETERANS DAY! THANK YOU to the Veterans who dedicated their lives serving their country. YOU ROCK! I know my Daddy Maurice would feel the same way if he was here. R.I.P. He would tell stories about his time in the service ,and the men & women he served with, having his chest out with pride. He was proud of serving in the United States Army as a First Lieutenant. After he served, he continued his life's path as a successful Human Resourse manager for over 30 years, being married to his childhood sweetheart Betty for 40 years and being a wonderful Daddy. His time served helped shape him into the man he became. THANK YOU to my Daddy and all the Veterans who are w/ us and those who have passed, they are still w/ us in spirit.

Please take some time today to remember our Veterans. They are responsible for the FREEDOMS we have. THANK YOU to our men & women who are still serving. Y'ALL ROCK! I know my Daddy Maurice would SALUTE YOU!

Enjoying this 'Ear Candy'...

Taylor Swift's 'Blank Space' has been added to the Mix Music New Ear Candy mix. It's from her new 'pop' album '1989'. It has a very Katy Perry vibe to it (drama about liking each other a while back. Dancers being stolen from tours.. ) with the TS flair. The video is fun too! It pokes fun of all the things some have said about TS's boyfriends, and dating in general. It's good to see she has a sense of humor about these types of things. She certainly gets a lot of hits from her dramas, so they are good for something. :) She might be able to write another hit for her next album about this video being released to early by 'accident' by Yahoo. She didn't breakup w/ them like Spotify with the whole album release drama.

Check the video out. It's fun!!
