Thanks for reading my blog. Both of you. I hope you find some points of humor or entertainment in them, and if you don't, well...email me some! I am always looking for more. By the way, my boss just told me that I'm not sharing enough information about myself. He wants a bio. So, in the interest of any of your curiosity and for a little more job security, here I go:
Hobbies: Radio. Although I am seeking another to supplement.
What I Do In My Free Time: WHAT?
Favorite Foods: Pretty much anything that doesn't make the kitchen stink after it's cooked.
Favorite Singers/Bands: Coldplay, Jars of Clay, Hillsong, Train, Colbie Caillat, Sting, Eagles, Chicago.
Favorite Women: My two girls.
Favorite Men: My two boys.
Favorite TV shows: American Idol, Fringe, Burn Notice, Swamp People, Fox News, The NEW Two and a Half Men.
Favorite Movies: Romance, Sci-fi and comedy. The trifecta. (Yep, I like CHICK FLICKS...don't judge me.) Favs include Star Trek, You've Got Mail, While You Were Sleeping, Dumb and Dumber, Caddyshack, Rat Race, Blazing Saddles, Animal House, Airplane!
Political View: He said WHAT?
Religious View: If Jesus can save me, He can save anybody.
Favorite interview: It's a three way tie. Billy Preston, Kenny Loggins and James Taylor. Three of the nicest guys you could ever meet. The late Billy was the best in making me feel comfortable when I was a little nervous.
Favorite concerts: Billy Joel and Elton John. Maroon 5 and Train. Chicago's still got it, but I think the late Dan Fogelberg wins out in the "older school" category.
Favorite Quote: Phillipians 4:19: "But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Favorite job: This one! Love playing your favorite songs.
Someone once told me that working out is FUN!
Here's elyptical candid photo from my 14-year-old daughter.
So, what's a sweaty DJ to do?? Go to Jared and ask him...He just told me "eat fresh." What a company guy.
Hey, shouldn't we be judging a gumbo cook off or something??
There's a lot of June weddings left to attend and/or crash!
DO: Decode the invitation. Before you can decide what to wear, you have to know what all the invitation lingo means. "Casual" daytime wedding? Sundress or skirt. "Semiformal?" Cocktail dress. "Formal?" A floor-length or dark-shade cocktail dress. "Black tie?" An evening gown or an ultra-luxe cocktail dress. "White tie?" All out: Gowns only, accessorized to the nines.
DON'T: Wear brand new shoes. It's tempting to buy heels specifically for a special occasion like a wedding, but never wear your shiny new kicks without breaking them in first. At a wedding, there's absolutely no escape from your pretty-yet-painful pumps. It would be a real downer to miss all the dancing because you can't walk! Or miss the bouquet in case you need to jump for it!
DO: Wear prints or rich brights. Muted prints, like summery watercolor or soft floral, are OK for a wedding, as are rich brights like magenta or cerulean. Both are acceptable and on-trend. Happy colors for the happy occasion.
DON'T: Never wear white or red. You never want to take attention away from the bride. White is her color, as is ivory, eggshell, cream and absolutely any other shade that might remotely resemble white. Just say no, friends. Also, avoid red -- you are not to halt people in their tracks like a glowing stop light. There are many other colors you can wear that are minimal but gorgeous.
DO: Layer or utilize separates. An A-line skirt with a pretty lace tank or a sheer blouse is a great option, and one you can probably assemble from pieces you already own (huge bonus!). If you're wearing a daytime sundress, choose a pastel cardigan, or you're rocking an evening cocktail dress, choose a feminine shawl.
DON'T: Wear anything revealing or flashy. Sequins? No. Lots of cleavage? Also no. If you look in the mirror and think, Hmm. . . is this really OK to wear? If you're hesitating, the answer is: No.
DO: Choose bold accessories. Since a muted palette is necessary to be a respectable wedding guest, add color and intrigue with a few gorgeous accessories. Choose a bright turquoise necklace to compliment a strapless dress or work some bold bangles into your skirt-and-shirt look.
DON'T: Forget the details. Pamper yourself pre-wedding! Paint fingernails and toenails a complementary shade. Pick up a tanning lotion for a subtle glow and some skin hydration. Get those locks a healthy trim... the little details go a long way to looking great. You never know who you'll see at a wedding (exes, frenemies.) or who you'll meet (um, the hot, single groomsmen, maybe?), so may as well look your best. (yourtango.com)
