Since April is Earth Month, it's a good time to try out a '1 Thing' and make it part of your living routine. Here are some '1 Things' from the Entercom ATX crew! What is your 1 Thing?
Here's my very first '1 Thing', which I still do after several years... added turning off water while brushing my teeth, recycling and re-using things... just a few little things can make a BIG 1 THING DIFFERENCE!
Traffic was FUN this morning.. NOT! Janet Jackson got me through this morning. This thought did pop in my head.. 'What has JJ been up too?". When I got to the station, it was funny to see a 'Mock Missing Person's Report that has been going around twitter to get JJ to surface. The word is she tweeted.. "LOL... Too Funny, too sweet." I'd like to hear some new ear candy from JJ. Wouldn't you?
#TBT here's one of JJ's tunes that got me through the rough drive in on Mopac & 360 this morning... Thank You JJ!
Okay.. I'm one of the few women I know that has not seen the movie 50 Shades of Grey, as well as reading the book. I keep thinking I really need to read the book, but I haven't attempted yet. I'll catch the movie when Netflix grabs it at this point. I do think the soundtrack is Awesome! I'm really loving this song. I caught ''The Weekend' for the first time on the Jimmy Kimmel Show via TV when it was here in ATX during SXSW Fest! You can hear 'Earned It by The Weekend' on Mix 94.7! Here's the video.. I love the GROOVE TO IT!
I just realized my parents got married on a 4/20 Day in 1963. It's got all kinds of celebration qualities to it. I personally pay more attention to my parents wedding anniversary. Today would have been their 52nd wedding anniversary. In dog years, that's 364 years. They were married 40 years, before my Mama Betty passed away, and my Daddy Maurice passed about 1 1/2 years ago. So when this popped in my head this morning, it made me smile and tear up at the same time.
What makes a couple stay together for so long? When I asked them on their 40th, my Daddy Maurice smiled and said that my Mama Betty is always right, and that seemed to work. She smiled and said, " It's LOVE'...We get in arguments/fights. We've gone through many Bad Times, but the Good Times Out Shine those... " The main part of their relationship is THEY TRULY LOVED EACH OTHER, AND THEY LIKE HANGING OUT WITH EACH OTHER AND DOING THINGS TOGETHER. It's what worked for them.
I like to think that they are together today celebrating their 52nd. My Mama Betty driving my Daddy nuts. My Daddy Maurice trying to keep his patience, but when it comes down to it..
THE LOVE THEY HAD/HAVE FOR EACH OTHER WILL LAST AN ETERNITY!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MAMA & DADDY! I LOVE & MISS YOU!
Here's one of their wedding songs. My Mama Betty LOVED Elvis and watched his movies and listened to his music all the time. Blue Hawaii was one of her favorite movies, so it was no surprise this song made it in their wedding. Okay, I'm getting teary eyed, so I'll let Elvis take it away.
If I had $1,000, I think I'd use it for a long weekend at the beach w/ my honey Ted. Bills popped in my head too, but the beach is way more FUN. What would you do w/ $1,000? Think about it, and make sure you listen starting Monday (4/20) for these 'Lucky Numbers'. Click here!
These are my honey Ted's car keys. Why would I have his keys? Well, I misplaced mine when I went shopping yesterday. I was at a store that sells mostly shoes, and was also looking at purses. Have you ever taken some stuff out of your purse and put it in the potential new one to see if it will hold all your stuff? Okay, I do that from time to time, but yesterday I forgot to somehow take my keys out of the one in the store, that I didn't buy. When I went to change out purses at home w/ a different one I got, my keys were MIA.
Of course, I freaked out, and felt really stupid. My honey Ted came to me and was so sweet and said, "Calm down... give me your phone." He found exactly where my keys were... In the, locked up for the night, store. He discovered this for sure w/ the GPS keychain finder he got me when I got my new phone. I didn't like it at all, because I felt like a little girl who needed mitten holders to keep them with her coat so she wouldn't lose them, which I had those growing up too!
Well, it did locate my keys, which even Ted knew I would misplace eventually. So I eat crow and say he's right about getting the keychain locater, and Thank You for getting my keys this morning. I was so mad at myself last night and upset. Again my honey Ted said," Honey we know where they are, I'll get them tomorrow. Use my keys to get to work. It will all work out!" Thank goodness for my honey Ted. I am so Lucky to have this man in my life. He says he's Lucky too, but I'm sure times like this would make one re-think that statement. :) I suppose I keep things exciting.. :)
To my honey Ted,, "I Love You Just The Way You are.... and I'm Thankful You Love Me Just The Way I Am Too!" ... Heather
Taylor Swift posted a letter on Tumblr to her fans titled 'Just So You Know' sharing news about her mom's cancer diagnosis. My thoughts and prayers go out to Taylor, her mom Andrea and the rest of her family. May Andrea's fight lead to victory in the very near future. I like the way Taylor signed off...
"Thank you for caring about my family so much that she would want me to share this information with you. I hope and pray that you never get news like this. Love you. Taylor " Click here to see the entire letter.
I made it through April Fool's Day w/out getting pranked. I did pull one on my honey Ted, but it was done out of Love. You'll understand whenyou watch it! April is Earth Month, with Earth Day happening on Wednesday, April 22nd. I was sent this fantastic video created by Ryan Castle, who is part of the Entercom Radio family in Seattle. It's a way different take on a what to do recycling video. It borders Epic for sure when it comes to recycling videos.. Check it out!
Today is also PB & J Day! Celebrate w/ your favorite combo! I treated my co-buds w/ a treat in the kitchen today. A sandwich that is yummy, and Mama Earth Friendly too! Good Yummy Times! Click here!
