I Tried To Get Off The Floor While Wearing The OPD’s 90lb Bomb Squad Suit… It Didn’t Go Well [VIDEO]

Last night, at the Citizens Academy with the Owensboro Police Department, was Hazardous Devices Unit night.... aka,The Bomb Squad. Officer Flory and Officer Alsip spoke with our class about all of their training, job duties and even showed off different types of (non-active) explosives and gear. Being the closet nerd that I am, I found it really fascinating.

The amount of knowledge that they must acquire is crazy impressive. And that suit... y'all, that beast weighs 90 pounds! So, naturally, I put the suit on and tried to get up from laying on the floor. How did it go? Not great, haha! Take a look...

My Car Got Broken Into… In Nashville [PHOTOS]

Monday was supposed to be zoo day. Carsyn and I had gone to Nashville Sunday for her first ever Titans game and Monday was a continuation of our Mommy/Daughter get-away.

While leaving the hotel early Monday morning to head to the zoo, I noticed some broken glass outside Carsyn's seat. Turns out, the glass was from my car window.
