I'm so confused

I love these short work weeks, but I get confused! Three times today I thought it was Tuesday and it's throwing me off. Hopefully you were able to get back into the swing of things faster than I could. One thing I do know is that Friday is right around the corner and this weekend it's free to use the Fox River Trail in honor of National Trails Day!

Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Hopefully we'll get to see you this weekend at Celebrate De Pere. Don't forget, Buddy Jewell's in concert Saturday night. And Sunday, look for De Pere Mayor Mike Walsh and myself in the De Pere Kiwanis Memorial Day parade on Monday.

Mayor Walsh lost our "Honks for Holly" challenge and he'll be walking the KICKS 104.9 Weiner Dog in the parade with the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile.

I also wanted to send a big "thanks" to all the men and women in uniform. It's easy to get caught up in the fun of the holiday, but I try to never forget what it's really about. See you at Voyager Park!

Signature Side Dish

If you're like Aaron and I, this Memorial Day you'll be popping into a few cookouts. I don't know about you, but I always feel the need to bring something. It used to be the typical pasta salad or dip, but here's a recipe for a dessert that will make your friends go crazy! They're called "Oreo Truffles" and here's the recipe:

1 large package regular Oreos
1 8oz. package of cream cheese, softened
approximately 1lb. of Almond bark (white Chocolate)

1) Crush Oreos as fine as possible
2) Mix cream cheese with Oreos--using your hands
3) Roll into balls, insert toothpicks, place on a cookie sheet
4) Freeze approximately 20 minutes
5) Melt Almond bark
6) Dip the frozen balls in the Almond bark
7) Decorate if desired
8) Enjoy!

Who's Walking the Wiener Dog

Celebrate De Pere is this weekend and Monday is the Memorial Day parade. So this Friday, De Pere Mayor Mike Walsh and myself will be on a corner on Main Street in De Pere part of the "Honk's For Holly" contest. Whoever gets the least amount of car honks will have to walk the KICKS 104.9 wiener dog in Monday's parade behind the Oscar Meyer Wiener Mobile. So please come out Friday morning from 7:30 - 9 and show some love with your honks.

Britney got hair extensions. It looks like her natural hair is already an inch long. You be the judge.

No way are they "just friends"!

I love awards shows! I love seeing what the nominees are wearing, who they're seating with, and how they act when they win. I especially love seeing who they brought as their date! And speaking of dates, did you catch Carrie Underwood and her date Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo making eyes at each other last night at the ACM Awards? Carrie says they're "just friends", but she also KISSED him on the lips when she won ACM Top Female Vocalist! I say, good for you Carrie, he's a hottie!

I am a bad person?

Today I was at Target on Lime Kiln trying on a pair of shorts. Turns out I needed another size and that Target didn't have it. I went up to 'Jo' working the fitting rooms and I asked her if she could call Target West.

She went ahead and made the call and was put on hold. After 5 minutes of waiting the line got disconnected and Jo offered to call the store again. This time she was put on ahold for a second time and again she got disconnected. Jo told me it wasn't a big deal and she called them back.

In the meantime, a woman was standing at the fitting room counter waiting to get the number for her fitting room. While Jo continued to call Target west, this woman was shifting her weight while huffing and puffing in frustration.

Still on hold, Jo finally got this woman her room number and as she walks by me she said "That's very rude of you to make her call, why not just drive over their yourself!" and she walked into the fitting rooms.

I didn't even have time to say anything to the woman! Instead I thanked Jo for helping me and I left. It was just another reminder of how hard it must be to work in customer service!

Are you kidding me?

Now that Rosie O'Donnell has announced she's leaving 'The View' the search is on for her replacement. You won't believe some of the names they're throwing around, like Kathi Lee Gifford, Whoopi Goldberg and Joan Rivers. The frontrunner is actually Roseanne Bar! In my opinion, if they cast Roseanne they're only getting a combination of Joy and Rosie mixed into the same body! With such a popular show I have a hard time believing they're that desperate for Rosie's replacement.
