show podcasts! crazy people, awkward families, and more!

My favorite part of my job has always been talking to people. Not just celebrities, but people who call in with ridiculous stories. It's like my private reality TV that I end up sharing with the world. If you ever wanna share something, DO IT! The show's direct number is 877-995-4681!

Some of my favorite story-producing topics are now podcasts in case you missed them [effing rude of you].

My MOST favorite: Awkward family stories. No intro needed, really. Everyone has at least one.




Then there are the moments when you're ridiculously heartbroken so you do something silly. A couple years later you look back and realize how nuts you were.



TINDER! My new obsession to talk about, duh. These stories should probably scare me away, though.



And finally, the moment you realized someone was crazy. If you've never had such an epiphany- you're a lucky human being.


I AM lucky I've never had anything close to as terrible as those stories, though. I'm so thankful for you all sometimes for coming up/calling with great stories.

I'm still working on getting that iHeart channel going for you to always catch up on the show, but for now, enjoy this page if you've missed anything.

elizabethanytv: another dance dare attempt for the ellen show

Ellen is doing another Dance Dare challenge and just like everything else she asks people to do, I'm jumping in to try and make dreams come true!

It didn't work last time, but they're doing it differently now. You upload a video to her ellentube site and they approve it to go public, then you get views, and... well, I actually have no idea how it eventually gets picked for the show.

In order to switch it up a bit, I had Nico and Vinz who were visiting to help me out around the office! They're the most chill guys, and even their dancing is chill... but we definitely got caught a couple of awkward times.


And for double the chances, I re-uploaded my original video. [Sorry if these auto-play.]


Now I shall watch every day as usual hoping my Christmas wish comes true. C'mon Ellen. Don't let me down. I'm starting to wonder if we're actually the best friends I thought we were.

love,

exclusive interview: b.o.b is my new favorite

When people ask me my favorite interview of all time, it's always been Trey Songz. Hands down. Duh.

There have been some solid interviews and games of Truth or Dare since then, but Trey Songz did something special to me.

Now... he may have been outdone. B.o.B came in last week. I've always liked his music and wish there was more... and after stalking his social media I knew we could be great friends if he let it happen.

All it took was a mention about bitches being crazy and I knew it was going to be a good time. [When he sits down at the :40 mark]

It was just a good time. It was like two immediate friends. I was really into it.


Then my favorite part of every interview: Truth or Dare. I've been waiting to dare a rapper to suck helium and spit something, and I knew he'd be down. Enter Spongebob and his "juices". [And enter my underwear that sluttily hangs out and looks gross.]


Honestly, I keep watching them because I think he's so funny. Hopefully I'm not just little schoolgirl giddy.

We talked even more about Thanksgiving, Black Friday and other random fun nonsense, so it's all down here if it's easier for you to download/listen in the car!

wearing: winter reds and blues

After talking to Danni from the Kane Show, I realized I'm going through what most people who just had a baby go through: A need for change. Or maybe it's the fact that I'm single now... or the fact that I feel like my fun purple hair doesn't match my wardrobe, but I'm in need of an all new closet. Something with edge. Something with sex. What?

All that being said, Black Friday is still a week away so I'm left with the basics. At least scarves make getting dressed easy. Take a scarf, match the outfit to the colors. That's what I did yesterday while reminding myself how pretty a bright red and light blue are together in the winter.




-scarf from Charlotte Russe [they're typically $5 on Black Friday so jump on that!]
-tank from my clothing swap
-Express jeans from TJ Maxx
-cardigan also from Charlotte Russe
-booties from Target
-earrings from BlueLans


 I have a love/hate relationship with fall/winter weather. I'm glad I can bundle up/cover up the football season gut I've gained, but it really is not flattering for any figure. Do you ever feel like it just makes you look even bigger? Sigh. Is it summer again yet?

recipe: baked salmon with avocado salsa

It's not often I get to make a solid dinner. 75% of the time, I'm making dinner at 1pm to eat in the studio at 8. Last night I decided to actually make something delicious. 

Some salmon, spices, and a simple salsa... the flavor only got better in the hours I impatiently waited to eat it. 


For the salmon: 
Mix equal parts of salt, coriander, cumin, paprika, onion powder, and black pepper. Rub it into the salmon with olive oil and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. 


Avocado salsa: 
Cut small slices of avocado, red pepper, red onion, and a spicier pepper if you'd like. [I used a potato peeler to make all the slices super thin and easy to soak in the flavors of the "sauce." Mix in juice from two limes, 3 tbs of olive oil, 2 tbs of chopped fresh cilantro, and salt to taste. 



Voila! It was light and healthy-ish and the spices on the salmon were perfect.
