Tumbleweed Southwest Grill Fundraiser Tuesday Night

Our friends at Tumbleweed are always very generous when we need their help with anything! They have provided several lunches for my Big O Party's here at the station and next week they are helping out The Help Office.

Tumbleweed, 5257 Frederica Street,  is hosting  a fundraiser Tuesday, August 7th, with 10% of all proceeds benefiting The Help Office.

This will be a really fun night! For some crazy reason, they've asked me to be a celebrity server, so prepare yourself for that trainwreck! I was never a server for a reason...terrible balance! Ha! It is a Hawaiian Luau theme,  what shall I wear?!! Joe Lowe will also be serving as well, in his coconut bra!!

United States Gymnast’s Parents Reaction To Her Performance [VIDEO]

There are few things in sports that I love more than women's gymnastics in the Olympics. So, you can imagine how excited I am for the next two weeks! USA! USA!

Last night one of my favorite moments from the Olympic coverage was the footage NBC got of Aly Rasiman's parents watching one of her events. Now, I know how nervous my Mom used to get for me during a regular regional talent competition, I can't imagine how she would have been at this level!

Take a look for yourself and try to imagine how excited/nervous/proud you would be at a moment like this!
