I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore. Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Graduated from Calvin College in '06. Started at Townsquare Media as intern several years ago and have loved serving in Production, Promotions, and currently, on-air.  Big fan of crime TV, my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching , and my dear dear family.

Fashion Dilemma: What the Heck is ‘Dressy Casual’?

With our office holiday party approaching this Saturday, I was excited about doing some shopping. I have this disease where I really like to get all stressed out about getting a totally new outfit for each different social engagement. It's maddening, but it's also sort of thrilling to go to every single store in Grand Rapids looking for the perfect dress and accessories-- yes, I know I'm slightly nuts, but it's just something I do. So, imagine my extreme delight when I found "it": a gorgeous purple dress on sale for-- get this!-- $20! Amazing find. And then. I get an email. Subject line: "Dress for Saturday Night". Contents: disturbing. --"For those of you wondering what to wear Saturday... dressy casual. No need for a ball gown or tuxedo." Followed by a smiley face. Smiley face!? I just lost my mind looking all over for this dress that isn't at all casual, mostly dressy, and bordering on formal-- and now you're telling me "dressy casual"? What even is that?

Facebooking and Driving: Quit it!

Visiting my parents for Christmas, I saw church sign in my small town that hit home: "Honk if you love Jesus... Text while driving if you want to meet him." Texting and driving is dangerous... I know that, but even I will admit to the occasional quick text at a red light, or while stuck in traffic. But really, I should quit it-- what is so that important that I can't wait until I get to my destination? It's a terrible habit I need to break.

Another thing I think is not  OK while driving? Posting on facebook!

Fans Shelling Out Big Bucks for Kate Gosselin Cruise

The last I'd heard about Kate Gosselin, since the cancelling of "Kate Plus 8", was that she'd gotten a job blogging about coupons. Looks like now she's got another gig: hosting a "celebrity cruise" on the high seas. Now, because I would actually pay not to be stuck on a boat with Kate Gosselin, it surprised me how much people were willing to spend to hang out with the reality TV star who once completely lost it over a slice of pizza...

Beyonce Gives Birth to a Baby Girl! And Names Her a Color…

There must be a rule that if you're rich and famous you have to name your child something bizarre. Nick Cage has "Kal-El", Stallone's got "Sage Moonblood", Gywenth has "Apple"-- and my favorite: Frank Zappa's daughter "Diva Thin Muffin".   Honestly, what ever happened to "Thomas" or "Jessica"? Though, yeah, I guess if your parents are named "Jay-Z" and "Beyonce" you can bet your name probably won't be too traditional.

E! News reports that Beyonce gave birth late Saturday night via scheduled C-Section, to a baby girl. And the little pop and hip hop princess' name is...

WARNING: If You Work Downtown Grand Rapids, Watch Out For This Guy!

As a woman working downtown, I'll admit to getting freaked out leaving work late at night. Hey, there are some crazy folk in this world and I have been approached by some weirdos.  Usually it's fairly harmless-- they want a ride, some change, a cigarette. But it could just as easily turn dangerous, which is really scary. Our office building managers released a warning yesterday about a specific person to watch out for. His name is Denver Gunn, and he wants to scam you. Seriously.

Locking Lips at Midnight– What His New Year’s Kiss Means

Traditions abound on New Years Eve. There's the ball drop, the countdown, that weird Auld Lang Syne song (yes, I had to look up how to spell it), and of course, the kiss at midnight. If you're hanging out with someone new or looking to hook up with a stranger (not judging, totally for it, hey it's a celebration!) you might be wondering exactly what his smooch means.

As usual, Glamour comes to our aid, breaking it down for us in "Anatomy of a New Year's Eve Kiss".

Proposing on Facebook– Totally OK or Soooo Wrong?

With the recent marriage proposal fail on Ellen last week, Wendy and I were chatting about terrible ways to propose. We think the whole public proposal thing is a bad idea-- just generally awkward and really puts someone on the spot. Another awful method-- facebook. We were sure someone out there had actually done it, and we were right. Check out what we found after the break and let us know what you think.
