Seeing U2 in concert is a chance of a lifetime and it comes with a lot of buzz including what not to bring and what happens after the show.
About 70,000 Michiganders flooded Spartan Stadium last night to hear the likes of Bono's smooth voice fill the air! U2 was originally scheduled to perform last June before Bono had to have emergency back surgery.
Getting back to the do's and dont's of last night's soiree
I missed you while I was away for a week of vacation along the lovelyLake Michigan shoreline!
My sister and nephew have been in town to celebrate the first week of summer with me and we decided to go camping at P.J. Hoffmaster State Park in Muskegon.
We had such a blast and I personally want to thank the park rangers (Karen and up-and-coming ranger, Jake) for helping us put up our tent and for kindly advising us when to take shelter during a tornado watch
ArtPrize Grand Rapids is world-renowned and has drawn 1,996 artists to the competition's upcoming third annual event this fall!
Yesterday was the official deadline for artists to submit their work and space requirements. So far, 600 applicants have been placed. Others have until the end of the month to find a home for their artwork.
Don't forget that Father's Day is this Sunday! Apparently some dad's are already feeling a little left out this year.
According to Sacramento Bee, 40% of men and nearly the same amount of women (36%) feel that this special occassion to honor our dad's doesn't quite get the attention it deserves!
I'm not sure if the following wish list has anything to do with it, but in the same survey, 41% of dads said that they'd like to get a new car on Father's Day and another 15% opted for a boat or yacht!
Thankfully, both my mom and dad are happy when I send a card and pick up the phone and call them on their respective special day!
You often ask me if I love my job because of the artists I get to meet and all of the concerts I get to attend, and the answer is usually a 'yeah' or 'it depends on the artist!' Well today, the answer is hands down (with heads high!) the former!
Up and coming artist, Andy Grammer, spent the afternoon in the studio before heading to the House of Blues for a concert in Chicago tonight! First of all, he is adorable, 27 and single -- for any of you who are looking for Mr. Right! Second, Andy seems to have his act together and not only knows how to work hard, but he does it with passion and a positive attitude!
There's something that happens inside of me when I'm out walking my dogs and I get a whiff of someone's steak grilling or smell a bonfire and hear it crackling! I love it and thoughts of family reunions and plans for the Fourth-Of-July start racing through my mind. But, has it ever crossed your mind that you'd kind of like to smell like a bar-b-que?? Me neither!
Rain or rain ... the 7th annual Easter Seals Walk With Me Grand Rapids event reigned at the John Ball Zoo!
I can't remember the last time I've had so much fun with a group of genuine, loving people who came from all parts of the state of Michigan to walk and raise money for the Easter Seals.
Last night, $63,000 was raised to help kids and families meet some of their financial needs as they continue to receive necessary treatment for autism, Down Syndrome and/or cerebral palsy.
Walk With Me at John Ball Zoo tonight to help raise funds for the Easter Seals!
I'll be co-leading the annual two mile walk that runs up, down, through and around John Ball Zoo with Michelle DeSelms of WXMI Fox 17 starting at 5 o'clock when registration begins!
What does the Easter Seals do for the community, you ask? Your heart is going to melt a little when I share just how wonderful an organization this is and those who have volunteered through the years to keep it afloat. Easter Seals serves kids and families who are walking through life with autism, Down's Syndrome or cerebral palsy.
