Take Off Your Shirt and Do 120 Push Ups!


The story continues: after I gave my 30 second pitch to Stacey, the casting director for Oprah’s Get your OWN Show audition last Saturday at 9:00 a.m., I had to wait the entire day for a call back. I hate to wait, so  my new BFF I met in line and I went to Laguna […]

Patricia’s Story: “I gained 100 pounds after the divorce.”

Why I Heart Firemen


I headed down to the FootZone store today to pick up my race packet for tomorrow’s Heaven Can Wait Race, and boom – there were big pink fire trucks in front.
