Favorite TV Shows That Ended Before Their Time

I don’t watch many tv shows but the ones that I watch, I really love. My favorites over the years have been across the board but the one thing that’s consistent is that I always hate when they come to an end. I realize they all have to end (unless it’s the Simpsons… I don’t thing that show will ever…

Let me just say that if Chef Tim Grandinetti were to start flipping burgers at McDonald’s, I’d eat there every day. The dude is an AMAZING chef and quite possibly one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met.

Crazy weeks are not uncommon in this house but this week ranked pretty high up on the “insane” scale. Between the Rooster having sales kick off meetings all week (I don’t miss those, FYI), me having a planning meeting for the upcoming Hope in Heels event (do you have your tickets yet?!) and my heading out of town Thursday to…

I love Dewey's.. I'm the Foursquare mayor of at least 2 locations and probably would take over a few more if they were on my beaten path.  As I was scrolling thru my twitter feed tonight, I found out that they have a special promotion going on to benefit the local Ronald McDonald house!! I've officially decided to skip buying…

We discovered a yummy little secret last year here in Winston. Every Father's Day weekend they have a big Rib Fest in downtown.  Twin City Rib Fest is a great way to try some mighty fine ribs and be entertained as well.  Last year, it was just Steve, Cassie and myself, but this year, we all went.  Believe me.. no one…
