It's the holiday season and undoubtedly, you've got a zillion parties to attend. You have yours, hour spouse or significant other's party, the church party, the neighbors party and that means a lot of cooking and appetizers. I just happened to be surfing the web (what I do best), and I came across this blog of delish appetizers.
I'm thinking it's better to make some good homemade foods and know whats in it, than buying. But, if you're in a hurry and don't have time to make things, a good bet is always hummus and pita. It's easy and you don't have to do much to prepare it.
Also, veggie and fruit trays go over really well because people like to graze at parties...you know what I'm talking about (I'm usually the one with the artichoke/spinach dip dribbling down my chin.). People stand around the food table chatting.
Here are a few appetizers which look great and easy.(but have a lot of calories, you can probably substitute some of the ingredients to lighten the calorie load.) Check them out here!
Is anyone else a fan of Celebrity Stylist Rachel Zoe? I love her style and her crazy lingo (like: "I die!", or "That dress is Bananas"). So anyway, while she is a stylist for rich folk, she has some gift ideas for giving back with the gift you give for Christmas this year.
I like the idea of giving a gift and the proceeds going to a good cause. Read here for some of her ideas. Some of the items are pricey but, you may know someone who would appreciate such a gift.
Marc Richards is a total tech geek (he is self proclaimed so I'm not bashing him here). He would probably salivate over this list. The Top 10 Holiday gadgets from the Editors of Inc., Magazine! See them here.
It's Free Movie Monday and in honor of the fact that we are giving away "The Muppet Movie" tickets, I thought I'd take a quiz to see which Muppet I am. I found out that I'm Elmo! That works for me. He's so cute.

If you're like me, you'll be cooking for Thanksgiving. Have you taken your turkey out to thaw it? I hope so because if you do it any later than early today, you might be in big trouble. There are so many things to remember when it comes to Thanksgiving--especially if you are entertaining. I can't keep all that stuff in my mind. I normally go to Butterball.com. I came across this site for the National Turkey Federation and I just fell in love with the tips, timelines and checklists. I need that kind of organization in my life!
Sometimes when you are running around for the holidays, you tend to overeat. I found a great group of recipes from Weight Watchers. The ideas is that if you are prepping for Thanksgiving, take some of those foods and make foods that will help you stay on track before the holiday gets here. Read on here.
So I found this video of a Linebacker Coach on the sidelines of the Washington Redskins vs Dallas Cowboys game on Sunday. What he's doing remains a mystery...but it appears he's delivering some secret message to the players...I think. Check it out here.
Here are some pictures of what our studio looks like...Marc came in early this morning to decorate...he's into the spirit already. I like to wait till after my Turkey Day to start with the holiday cheer. Does that make me a scrooge? I hope not!
You may wonder what I'm doing when I'm sitting in the studio some mornings. Am I thinking up what Lite favorites to play? No. Am I slugging back coffee like it's my job? Yes. But some days, I get a wild hair and decide to clean out my purse. Today was one of thsoe days. I'm a very messy girl. I tend to carry around everything except the kitchen sink in my purse. This picture shows you just how small my purse is and all the JUNK I'm carrying in it. Ugh. Just thought I'd share. Thank you for listening! :)
Have you ever looked at other people's Facebook pages and gotten a little bummed out because of it? I know I've done that. I call it "The Facebook Effect". Loosely described it's the feeling you get after looking at other's Facebook pages (good or bad). So I headed over to Urban Dictionary to see if there was a definition of it. There were different definitions. Check them out here.
What if every time you opened your laptop, you smelled bacon. I'd be happy! Enter "Olly"... is a "web connected smell robot" that converts tweets, Facebook notifications, RSS feeds -- whatever you want -- into smells. How cool is that? I think I'd like one smell to be chocolate, another to be vanilla and of course bacon. Apparently "Olly" has a removable section in the back (kind of like a secret hatch on a doll, I guess) that you can fill with any smell you want. What would you want your computer to smell like? essential oils? a slice of fruit? or maybe your main squeeze's perfume? Want more? Read here!
Hi There! Howz it going? Sometimes it really awkward to be on the radio. It's because you are talking in a room and you don't have anyone to react to you. It's like having a conversation with a wall. That's why I always ask questions of you guys. If you hear me ask you a question and it resonates with you, go ahead and give me a shout! I'd love that. I'd love for you to respond and we can have an interactive morning show. Does that sound good to you? (see? I just did it. Did you get that?)
Hope to hear from you. Drop me a line or even comment on something else at email@example.com!
