Wild

WILD is out in theaters today!!!

WILD

A true story about a woman who overcame tragedy by putting on her hiking boots...and hiking alone for over 1,000 miles.

Expectations going in:

LOVED the book. LOVE Reese Witherspoon. This book meant so much to me. I grew up hiking the mountains and know their healing power.

My Take:

A great story is a great story. This movie is a great story. I think it is a story that relates to everyone.

Would I see it with my mom:

Yes. My mom would love this film. Great mom/daughter bonding film.

Good date movie?

I think this is a great date movie!!! This is a chick flick that guys will like. I promise.

Bottom Line

If you want a nice movie to see with the family this holiday season...go see WILD

Sara's Single Girl Diary: Online Dating Pictures

Sara's Single Girl Diary: Online Dating Pictures

Full disclosure. I am an online dater. You can currently check me out on Tinder and Eharmony. #ShoutOut

Guys. Picking the right pictures for online dating is hard. So let me give you some help.

If you want to meet a girl. Stop posting the following pictures.

If it isn’t your kid…don’t hold the kid. Holding a random kid doesn’t make us go….ooo he will be a good father one day. It confuses us.

Don’t post pics with gaggles of boobalicious girls.

Don’t pose with your ex girlfriend

Don’t post a pic giving your ex girlfriend a piggy back ride.

Don’t throw me the middle finger

Don’t post a blurry picture of your feet

I don’t want to see the one time you got drunk and dressed up in a chicken costume.

I don’t what your golf swing looks like from behind.

I find all the wakeboarding pics highly suspect. I challenge you that you do not wakeboard every weekend, but instead went once 5 years ago.

Finally. It is 2014. I don’t need to explain to you why shirtless selfies are dumb. Automatic NOPE.

So men. If you want a lady. Stop posting these pictures. Thank you.

Single Austinite Diary 13

Because I am single I have been sleeping on an air mattress for the past 3 weeks.
 
I am currently in the middle of a move and in the meantine…because I don’t have a boyfriend…I am sleeping on my friend's air mattress. Don’t get me wrong. It is a lovely air mattress. The best Walmart has, BUT if I had a boyfriend I would be sleeping comfortably in his bed.
 
Instead I am on a bed that sounds like I am letting out a big fart everytime I flip over.
 
A bed that even my dog gets on and them immediately goes, "oh hell no, I choose the floor."
 
A bed that tells me I need to loose weight as it slowly deflates a little each night.  I started  at 8 inches from the floor…now I am at about 2.
 
I need to find a man to save me from the air mattress.

Dog Spooning!!????

Booker, Alex & Sara/ MIX Morning Show found out there are A LOT of MIX Friends who 'Spoon' w/ their dogs, just like Sara & Jet.  Booker didn't believed it until the photos came pouring in on the MIX Facebook page.  Sara created a 'Dog Spooning' masterpiece w/ lots of cute cuddly help from many MIX Facebook Friends. Booker won't be able to listen to John Legend's 'All Of Me' the same again... Not without thinking about all this cuteness!
 



Inspired by John Legend's "All Of Me"

5 Bands I am still listening to after SXSW

St Paul and the Broken Bones

​You don't have to know a single song from the album to have fun watching this band. I immediately bought their album after I saw them live. I love the lead singers voice. 

PS...They are coming back in April for the Old Settlers Music Festival. 

​



Birds of Tokyo

AThis group sells out stadiums in Australia. I had listened to their song 'Lanterns' prior to seeing them at SXSW...but seeing them live made all the difference. â€‹Listen to the song a few times...it becomes addicting. 



Bleachers

Jack Antonoff of Fun has a new project called Bleachers. Maybe it is because I love the band Fun...or maybe it is because I love Jack's girlfriend (Girls creator Lena Dunham) but I dig this band.



Mandolin Orange

I read about this band from Peter Blackstock at the Statesman. This particular video is from 2012, but oh so good. 



Vance Joy

A nice, cute boy sent me this video last spring and I kind of fell in love with Vance Joy. Great summer song and super cool music video. 




A few other bands I didn't get to see, but heard a lot about. 

Jamestown Revival
Boy and Bear
