This popped in my head....

For some reason driving into work, this song popped in my head.  Made me smile/laugh a bit. I wanted to share, especially if you've had one of those mornings... maybe this will make the day better. :)

They're Human too..

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!

Corpus Christi Good Times!!

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!

Things to do     
  

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. cool

Before Fifty Shades....

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...

It finally happened...

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..

Pretty Cool...

I'm getting in deep w/ catch up on Game Of Thrones.  I'm into season 3, and last night I watch Kalisi showing some major Girlpower getting a huge army and working her dragon. I thought this was pretty cool. Queen's guard does the GOT theme song.
How about in honor of Kalisi today...

My Surprise...

I opened our snack cabinet and discovered this...


Lava Balls.... one of my all time favorite candies that I first discovered in a few stores in Austin when I moved here over 8 years ago. The past 3-4 years,  I haven't been able to find them here in ATX.  Every once in a while I'll order them online, for something special, but I haven't done that in a while.


My honey Ted surprised ordered them and I found them in the cabinet  It's been a very busy week, so I've had some late evenings getting home from work.  This is like surprise flowers your sweetie might give you. Since my allergies flare up w/ flowers, he got me one of my favorite sweet treats.  I'm so blessed to have Ted in my life. He's definitely a Keeper! 
Love him to pieces!  He Rocks!!  Huey does too! :)

Look what I ran into...

Remember  these.... #TBT  :)

I ran into this a bit ago, so there are some still around. 
But it's a throw back for me as far as using one. How about you? How did we live without our smart phone, because I don't think that's possible now.  Ever get that lost feeling when you some how forgot your phone or it needs a good charging, so you are without it.
This song popped in my head:
