I grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, MN. I love music but being that I have zero musical abilities making music was not an option. Thankfully I stumbled upon radio.
A few things you should probably know about me: I love vodka and wine (sometimes in the same glass), I have my own bowling ball that smells like grapes, my car is my longest relationship and I'm terrified of mascots/clowns.
I am thrilled my radio career has brought me to the Tri-state and excited to join the Bob Rocks family.
I wash swim suits, underwear, bras but typically I don't wash shirts, pants, hoodies, dresses and or whatever. Apparently, you should be! The Today talked about why you should wash your new clothes before you wear them. According to a professor of dermatology at Colombia University Medical Center, your clean looking new clothes can be covered in formaldehyde resin, dyes, infectious diseases, lice and even scabies! I didn't even know what scabies was, whatever you do, don't google it! Click here for the Today show link.
I'm a total wino, I love spending time outside and fail hard at Pinterest projects, a lot. Over the weekend I made these sweet wine bottle tiki torches and they actually work! I'm so excited about them, they cost me $3.42! Well, not including the cost of the wine I already drank. haha
Here is what you'll need to make your own:
1/2 Teflon Tape (I had some but it's about $1.25)
1/2 x 3/8 copper coupling, I paid $0.99 each.
1/2 copper cap, I paid $0.69 each.
Tiki wick, two pack $3.48.
Tiki torch citronella 128 oz bottle $10.48. I had some, so I didn't have to buy anymore.
Empty wine bottle
Pour your citronella into the empty wine bottle, wrap teflon tape around the side of the coupling that is going into the wine bottle, insert the wick (make sure the end of the wick is in the citronella) and light your tiki torch! When you're done enjoying a nice evening outside, blow out your torch and place the cap over the wick. It's that simple!
A shift manager at a NYC Starbucks lost her mind on a customer and, according to Starbucks, "quit" after videos of her went viral over the weekend. Apparently the shift manager accused the girl in the black dress of trying to steal a cookie straw. The girl in the black dress tries to pay for the straw and the worker just keeps screaming at her, when other customers step in to defend the girl, the worker screams at them too. Starbucks released a statement more or less stating the shift manager is a good person who was having a bad day. They also offered the customer a hundred dollar gift card. Here are the two videos: (Warning: profanity)
Lauren Wiggins was given detention for a dress she wore to school that showed her back, she was later suspended for one day after she wrote the vice president this letter.
It seems that these stories keep popping up more and more frequently. Girls are being sexualized by society younger and younger these days, it's terrifying. Do you really think her back showing is more of a distraction than making a scene by pulling her from class? Here is a picture of the dress.
Who doesn't love those garlicky, buttery breadsticks from Olive Garden?! Just when you thought they couldn't get anymore heavenly Olive Garden steps up their game and drops the Breadstick Sandwich! Look at this thing and try and tell me you wouldn't eat it.

A 14-year old was suspended for the answers she wrote on a sex-ed assignment. I'm sure she was suspended for swearing but I enjoyed her brutally honest answers. This is totally something I would have done in high school, which may have been why the teachers loved me so much. And by "loved me so much" I mean, I spend a lot of time in the principal's office.
