Why is Ikea Trending?

Ikea's Halloween spot is making the rounds. It's not trying to put something together which I wish I had video of my Honey Ted years ago putting an entertainment center together. After a few hours it was up w/ a few less screws and a hole in the back from a fist going through it. That would have been a Scary video.. This Rocks!

Like this especially since it's a Shining Reference, which I love that movie too... then we have something in common

Watch out for this!

If you're a Blue Bell Ice Cream LOVER than we have something in common. Might be worth a vote!!!

Go for it!

Sometimes you just have to whip out a 'Happy Dance!' It's 1/2 way through the work week!
GO FOR IT! It seems logical that I'd whip out PW's 'Happy', but I logical is not always a 'me word'.
I was feeling this.... Do your 'Happy Dance' to whatever makes you Happy!!!

I tagged Alex on FB.. Think he'll do it? Maybe pass it along to Booker?

I had a GOOD Cry last night...

I finally got this movie. 'No Fault In Our Stars' via Netflix and watched last night. It's a good thing I didn't see it in the theater. I teared up which turned into crying. I haven't cryed from a movie in a long time. One of the Best Love story movies I've seen in a while. I highly suggest watching it if you haven't, but be prepared with tissues. I've heard the book is better than the movie, so I'll be getting that soon. If that is the case, I better have a box of tissues ready.

The soundtrack includes Charlie XCX 'Boom Clap', which is a huge hit for her. She talks about that w/ Jay Styles when she was in the Mix Lounge for a Q&A last Friday. Click here to check it out!

This goes perfect w/ today...

#TBT I thought I'd share a Big Time Ear Worms I've had the past week for Whitesnake. I was a huge fan of theirs in the '80s early '90s. I had a thing for David Coverdale, and not a fan of Tawny Kitaen.

Anyway, I thought this photo of hair that defies gravity goes perfect w/ some Whitesnake, who I've been listening too a bunch lately on my off time. Here's one of my favs.... Might make your hair feel a bit bigger after you Rock out to it! You could even attempt a windmill...

Cute & Disturbing...

Taylor's new Diet Coke commercial album promo has me torn w/ cute and/ or disturbing.

Do you think...?

Do you think folks have forgotten their manners?

I say yes just from experiences just this morning...

-Driving into work letting people in and not getting a wave from even 1 out of the 12 I let cut, It's basically cutting because they obviously thought they didn't need to wait in the lane that goes up on Mopac. It's easier to drive up closer, cut and not acknowledge anyone who let them in.

- Coming in the building and the person in front of your going into the buidling doesn't even try to hold the door open enough for you to grab it. Of course the elevator w/ this person isn't any better, They don't ask what floor, so you have to press it after they press their floor and hover near the panel, so you can't press your number until they get off the elevator. Or how about coming out of the elevator to someone else immediately pushing their way in before you can get completely out!

Okay.. I won't continue, because the list goes on. I appreciate the little things when they happen.. the wave on the road.. holding a door open..telling someone to have a nice day, can go a long way.
I'm not perfect by any means, and I know there have been times my manners were lacking too, so I don't condone it. But I do try to make my attitude better, which makes manners better too. Also face to face interaction is a big help. It's too easy at times to let them go w/ all the social networking going on.

I have a sign at home that says 'Be Nice or Leave!' It's pretty fitting for most circumstances. There is nothing wrong w/ being nice so we use our manners more often than not. Give it a try on the drive home today. It could even curb the road rage!

Over 60 years...

This is how long a guy named Bob was w/ his wife Kath before she passed away 3 years ago. True Love reigns in this case. He recently wrote and shared a poem for Kath that is trending! I wanted to share this.. something that came from a True Love Heart. It's not the easiest thing to come by these days, but if you do have it, get it or had it during your lifetime, you are a better person for it. (Love You Always& Forever Ted.. my honey for over 21 years, married 13 of them) ..

Here's Bob's poem:

I am alone, now I know it's true

There was a time when we were two

Those were the days when we would chat

Doing little jobs of this and that

We'd go to the shops and select our meals

But now I'm one I know how it feels

To try and cook or have meals on wheels

The rooms are empty there's not a sound

Sometimes I'm lost and wander round

To look for jobs that I can do

To bring back the days when we were two

When darkness falls and curtains drawn

That's when I feel most forlorn

But I must be honest and tell the truth

I'm not quite alone and here's the proof

Because beside me in her chair

She quietly waits our time to share

Kath said to me some time ago

Darling when the time comes for us to go

Let's mix our ashes and be together

So we can snuggle up for ever and ever.

One of my Favorite months...

October is a nice month w/ football, cooler temps (finally) and I just found out it's also National Pretzel Month. I'm in. I'm a Big Pretzel fan especially soft pretzels. I can't resist not getting an Auntie Anne's pretzel when I hit Barton Creek Square Mall. It's part of the shopping experience. If you've never tried pretzel crust pizza, well you are missing out! It's easy to make too. Get the Auntie Anne's kit and follow the dough directions, then make it how you like it! MMMM... I'm think'n this weekend I will celebrate the Big P-Month making some Pretzel Pizza. It will go great w/ the football games! Hook'em Horns!!! Go Cornhuskers!
Have a Happy & Safe Weekend!

Awkward & Funny

Getting married soon, have a few of these in your bridal photos or just looking to see what not to do when it comes to photo opps...

I think this is more funny than awkward, although it could have been awkward for Ted since he's the one being pulled. :)

Crossed this off my Bucketlist...

Hi there.. I was away for a bit doing an estate sale of my childhood home in Omaha, NE. Every time I drive home with Ted (yes.. at least a 13 hour drive), we see a sign in Hebron ,NE. We have never stopped until yesterday on the way back to ATX. Click here to find out what 'World's Largest' Hebron has!
