Congrats to Iowa State!
Congrats to Iowa State for beating the #7 Michigan Wolverines yesterday. I think we can all agree, whenever Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, or Wisconsin loses…it’s always a good thing.

Shawn Johnson

Have you seen Shawn Johnson lately (like in the ESPN Body Issue)? She’s ripped…always been ripped…but she looks incredible.

Her tweets though are making me feel very lazy!

Rise and shine tweeters!!! Up early to get my two-a-day session started!!! You better be headed to the gym 😉 -#justdoit #teamnike #nikefuel

Shawn…it’s 6:00 in the morning…Special Agent Oso just started…I’m tired. Much props to you Shawn Johnson, you are on fire. Well done!

Pearl Jam

So, after 2 months of debating, I did not go to Pearl Jam in Oklahoma City…and I tormented myself on Sunday morning by looking at their setlist. Holy cow…it looked AWESOME

I’ve waited my whole life to see Pearl Jam. But when your 2 yr old starts crying at dinner, nose running…” Please don’t leave me mama”…

P!nk (@Pink) tweeted at 10:39 PM on Fri, Nov 15, 2013:
2 yr old wins. Hands down. Every time.

Yep…agreed…P!nk, you and I will hang out…and go see Pearl Jam together next time. I’ll pay for dinner.

An A+
To the man with black & gray coat in the Costco parking lot, thank you for taking my shopping cart back for me. I had both kids with me, and the shopping cart return was a bit of a walk away. I appreciate that kindness, and I say thank you sir…an A+ for you.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
