Gives me the Gooseybumps..

Stole a J-Lo term.. Gooseybumps.. This New MIX Music John Legend tune 'All Of Me' hits right on when it comes to my Honey Ted. We've been together over 2 decades and through ALOT. From moving around for work, a lifesaver when I got Meningitis, Hurricane Katrina/losing just about everything, and recently losing my Daddy Maurice... Ted's support, hard work, understanding, Love and just being my Best Friend through everything... HE ROCKS!  This song describes things perfectly, which of course gives me Gooseybumps.  We've had ALOT Of Good Times too, many of them just being together and enjoying each other's company.  I'll stop w/ the mushy stuff, but I do appreciate this song, and it means a lot to me when I think of the Man in my life!  TED ROCKS!

Driving on the wet/icey roads...
Driving on the wet icey roads.. well okay..  I was riding. My Honey Ted drove me into work today.  While we were stuck on 360 for a while due to a  broken down truck and an earlier accident, this song suddenly popped in my head. 


Let's hope for no more icey roads, because some peeps in ATX just don't seem to get the whole take it slow & easy cruising on the roads... especially over bridges and overpasses.  Look foward to a warm up coming, and by the weekend in the 70s. I'll take that.. how about you? Maybe bust out a Safety Dance sometime today...  ENJOY!

My Weekend Favs...

A few of 'My Favs' from the Grammy Awards:
-Taylor Swift Rocked the Red Carpet. She looked marvelous even though she didn't win a Grammy!

- Pink & Imagine Dragons were my Favorite performances.  Pink shows how to sing live while spinning around many feet in the air, and holding up a dude.  How to reach those high notes even after the workout w/ Nate. She can do it all!  Imagine Dragons (Grammy Winners) worked it w/ Lamar Kendrick. LOVED THEM BOTH!

- Cute Grammy Couple.. Bruno w/ his model GF Jessica... He even sent her out Love during his Grammy Thanks speech for 'Best Pop Album- Unorthodox Jukebox'. 

Another FAV comes from the grocery store. I found it at Central Market. Blue Bell's New flavor in time for Valentine's Day.. ' I ♥ Chocolate' OMG.. I do, but it was confirmed when I took a bite of BB's new Ode to Chocolate.  Okay, it was more like a few bites. YUMMY!!!

I ♥ Chocolate is a smooth Milk Chocolate Ice Cream combined with luscious dark chocolate-filled chocolate hearts, chocolate-coated cake pieces and a chocolate icing swirl.  It went great w/ the Dark Chocolate Java Cake I made.  It definitely was a Chocolate/Chocolate Cake Weekend.

Cold Wake up today..

Mid 20's this morning an icey dip could wake you up, but I passed on that.  Can you believe by Sunday it will be in the mid 70's?!   I'll take that over cold and ice anytime! Looking forward to the thaw out this weekend!  Aren't you? Or do you like 'Cold Dips' in the morning?

Song that got stuck in my head this morning...

Great Date Night...

Coming in this morning, I was smiling and feeling good coming off a Great Date Night w/ my Honey Ted.  We went to see American Idiot- The Musical (based on the multi-Grammy winning Green Day album) at Bass Concert Hall.  Here is my first thought about the show last night from my Facebook post to my friend Tracy shortly after the show.

I Loved the way Green Day's album 'American Idiot' came alive on stage last night. It actually gave me an even better appreciation for the album and the songs that are on it. There were little gliches for opening night, but little things that smoothed out quickly.  The leads: Johnny/ Jared Nepute,  Will/ Casey O'Farrell, Tunny/ Dan Tracy, Heather (GREAT NAME)/ Mariah MacFarlane, Whatsername/ Olivia Puckett, St. Jimmy/ Daniel C. Jackson and The Extraordinary Girl/ Taylor Jones.. these parts were cast perfect. The Ensemble did a Good job... the BAND ROCKED IT TOO!  I believed each character these folks portrayed. Many of them are graduates and this is a first touring tour!  You wouldn't have guessed that, especially 1/2 way through the production, they all OWNED the stage!
American Idiot was 90 minutes of 'Sweet Chaotic Harmony...' There are so many things going on, you could see this production several times and catch something new and different each time.  You seem to pick a favorite character  by the end of the production.  Or Ted and I did.  His favorite was 'St. Jimmy'..  I liked 'Whatsername'! 

This is a Great Date Night show to catch... out w/ friends...!  There were a group of ladies behind us, that were having a blast!  There is harsh language and sexual overtones, so if this offends you.. DON'T GO! It's not a show for young kiddos either. If you are looking for a high energy ride through the ups and downs of life as they happen on stage w/ 3 stories going at the same time... YOU'LL LOVE IT!  Of course if you're a Green Day fan.. DEFINITELY GO! American Idiot runs through Sunday 1/19 at Bass Concert Hall!

If  I were to get on this it would be 'SCARY', for me and everyone I would run into.  Take a segway + skateboard+ unicycle.. add a plug in to charge  You've got the 'Onewheel'.. supposedly it's a much smoother ride than a skateboard.. much like a snowboarding/surfing.  Future X Games addition?   Don't forget the Summer X Games are in ATX this June 5-8! Because We Rock!

Golden Globes 'CHEERS'!

Sunday Night/ NBC @ 7pm- you can catch the 'Golden Globes' by return from last year hosts Tina Fey & Amy Poehler.  You might have heard/ or even played their  Golden Globes Drinking Game.  They have some more rules they added to last year's list. 

Added rules for the 2014 GGs:

-Any time you see a gown with sleeves... DRINK
"Any time they cut to Tom Hanks for a reaction shot, do five push-ups
-Every time I drink, everybody at home should drink," said Poehler.

Add those tips into last year's rules:

-Drink any time an actress cries in a speech.
-Drink any time you see a person actively not listening to someone onstage.
-Drink any time someone says, "I didn't prepare anything!"
-Eat a meatball sub any time someone thanks Harvey Weinstein.
-Take off an article of clothing any time they show Judi Dench.
-Take off an article of clothing any time Maggie Smith wins.

Looking foward to tonight!

I've got a date night w/ my Honey Ted going to the screening of 'The Legend of Hercules'. The movie pieces and parts I've seen look good. But even if it's just okay, it's all good since Kellan Lutz is 'HERCULES'.  What would you name his pecks? Click here to you'll understand the weird ?  What pick up line would Hercules use?

The Legend of Hercules is in 2D & 3D.. a shirtless Kellan will Rock both! Good News.. Kellun is not hooked up w/ Miley!

I wouldn't want to imagine what was going on in this woman's head when she slide off a bridge in Minnesota! The word is she landed on a fully frozen pond, and only got minor scrapes and scratches.

Not Ron Paul....
Happy 1st Monday of 2014! I hope it's a Happy one.  A neighbor over the weekend asked if I was going to watch The Bachelor w/ Ron Paul starting up tonight.  I was like Ron Paul?  When I checked it out, I see that it's Juan Pablo... BIG DIFFERENCE from Ron Paul, which would be interesting/different.  Will you watch Juan find his true love tonight?
