Can you believe it's been 25 years?

One of my favorite movies, 'Pretty Woman', celebrates it's 25th Anniversary next Monday, March 23rd. Amazing how time flies since the movie... I graduated college, got married to my Honey Ted, expanded the family w/ Shih Tzu Huey, on a radio tour that has taken me to several cities, experienced loss through Hurricane Katrina, lost both of my parents, been having fun on Mix 94.7 in ATX for close to 9 years... this is just a few of the many things...Wow.. lots have happened in 25 years! Think about what you've done and been through in the past 25 years.... Now go enjoy making even more memories, which I hope has way more happy ones.

This is one of my favorite scenes in the movie. I have run across this type of treatment in stores before, and this scene nails it! LOVE IT!

Are you in a 'Green Mood'?


I think if you have Green eyes you are covered for today. Although I didn't leave that to chance and went full on 'GREEN MODE'. No pinchers in my direction. I'm 1/2 Irish, so that should cancel out not wearing green too, but again, no chances. I hope your St. Pattty's Day is a Happy & Safe one!
Here's some Irish ear candy that can stick w/ you! Sláinte!

It's that time...

SXSW Festival time. A time where ATX will be filled with lots more people. Downtown will be even more of a challenge to find parking. Traffic around that area will be jam packed with roads closed. A time where celebs can just pop up out of nowhere. If you enjoy the idea of SXSW Fest, but want to see what's up from a far, this link might be just what you're looking for. Never know what may pop up, especially since it's Friday the 13th!

I've heard watching the 1st Friday the 13th movie can be lucky because of the start of the Kevin Bacon chain...

Watch out this weekend in ATX!

SXSW Film Festival kicks off this weekend. There's a big possibility if you are downtown, you could run into STAR POWER. I feel phones getting prepped for ' Rouge Selfies' ,and I'm sure a few stellar photobombs will pop up too. Celebs of all types will be around. Foodie Fans will have to keep a watch out for Anthony Bourdain.

Anthy Bourdain's first novel Bone in the Throat premieres as a movie adaptation at the SXSW festival this weekend. According to Deadline Hollywood, the "culinary mystery" is dark and dramatic. Bone in the Throat follows an ambitious young chef — played by Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick (he'd be cool to run into too) — who is a "witness to a murder in his own kitchen" by his uncle, who is part of the East End London Mob. Westwick becomes embroiled in his uncle's business while trying to undo his mess and stay out of jail himself, all while cooking up some seriously stellar looking dishes. The film — which has been many years in the making — also stars( more Star Power you might run into) Selma's Tom Wilkinson and Kick-Ass 2's Andy Nyman and Bourdain serves as an executive producer.

Check out the trailer. Watch out this weekend!!

'How could they miss that answer?' or 'Why would they buy another vowel?'.... See how you do the last weekend in March, when the 'Wheelmobile' rolls into ATX!

Here's some basic 411 (KXAN):

Would you ride this?

This could be worth a road trip for a roller coaster lover. Fury 325 is 1 of 5 Giga Coasters, which is taller, faster, scarier than what the norm is. This one opening the end of March is the tallest so far... Would you ride it!
