TONIGHT!!! #iHeartFestival2021 🌟

08/19/2021

Kudos to the Cobb County Police Department, the Atlanta Braves and Better Baseball. They put a lot of smiles on little faces tonight.

Super proud of what the Cobb Police Athletic League (PAL) did tonight. Over a hundred kids and PAL volunteers gathered at Clarkdale Park in Austell for baseball ⚾️ camp!

PAL’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of young people ages 4-18. They focus on juvenile crime prevention through mentorships, and recreational activities for our youth in Cobb County.

Many of these kids don’t have the opportunity to participate in league sports due to the inability to pay the costs often associated with organized sports. But tonight…they had their own field of dreams. And I bet a few crawled into bed with the hope of playing for the Braves one day. 🙌🏻❤️🤍💙

Hap-Hap-Happy Birthday to my favorite (only) sister! You’ve heard me say it a million times, but I’ll shout it again…SHE’S AMAZING!

And it’s so funny…because we are so completely different. She drinks wine. I like beer. She avoids the sun. I could spend the day on a beach. She eats healthy. I just…well…EAT! 🤪

But she’s my favorite phone call. She still protects me. She’s the best aunt to my boys. And hands down…one of the funniest humans on this planet. She’s tough as nails, but has the most giving heart. And I will NEVER understand how she juggles everything in her life. When I grow up, I want to be just like her! 💗

Okay…now it’s time for some real-talk…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Kim Brown! Thank you for setting the bar with our parents and showing them they needed to try again to have the perfect daughter. If not…I wouldn’t be here. Love you! 💗😂💗

We have a truck winner! Swipe ➡️ to see Donna sitting in her Jason Aldean customized Toyota Tundra. She was so shocked and said she was giving it to her hubby because he deserved it. 💗

I drove home really REALLY happy. I got to spend the day with so many people I’ve gotten to know over the years working at 94.9 The Bull. I got to make so many new friends. Great conversations and so many laughs. And I got to hang with coworkers that are more like family.

I also drove home thinking about how very grateful I am for the day. Everybody was in such great spirits. It was a gorgeous day. So many smiles. Dozens of really great conversations. My heart needed a day like yesterday.

I also drank 5 bottles of water out there! So healthy! 💧😂💧

Everybody needs that friend that will literally get in the trenches with you. That friend who will have your back even when you are really showing your backSIDE.

That friend that will be late to a concert because you’re starving and you want a plain cheeseburger happy meal from McDonald’s. And doesn’t complain when you need to swing through another McDonald’s on the way home for an iced coffee. 🤣🍔🧋

That friend who will stuff all of your crap in her shirt pockets because your purse doesn’t pass the clear bag policy at a venue. And the kind of friend who can recite every line to any rap or hip hop song from the 90’s - because she is iconic and a savage beast.

Lisa, I adore our friendship. We have packed a ton of laughs, tears, Botox, alcohol, selfies and truth into this friendship. No where near the amount of stuff we packed into your two shirt pockets last night…but still…A LOT!

Lisa Worley…Thank you so much for being my friend! 👯‍♀️💗

I never considered that maybe one day I’d be hanging with my grown son and his friends at a concert. But I’m here to say…it’s pretty fantastic.

They always say you can tell a lot about a person by the friends they keep. And it occurred to me last night that I couldn’t have picked a better squad for Connor. I’ve watched these boys grow up over the last 10 years into good-hearted and incredibly decent men. I’ve spent hours with their families at football games. AND (most important) THEY ALL love their mommas!!! 💗😂🙌🏻

I’m a BAG LADY!!!! Does this give old lady vibes? Or does it scream brilliance???

Women have to carry so much crud. So I figured I would put different things in designated pouches. And then when I swap from work tote to purse…I just pull the smaller bags I need. AND…I’m not constantly digging around for stuff anymore. I know exactly where to find what I need.

So am I old or am I really on to something here? 🤷🏼‍♀️😬

Got to eat dinner with my BFF and her fam last night!

Jenny wants to be accountability partners as we train for a half marathon. But here’s the kicker…she doesn’t want to actually run 13.1 miles. She just wants to TRAIN for it and get the T-shirt. ➡️ 😂😂

She’s a @zyiaactive wear fanatic. So I gifted her with some training leggings. I’m not quite sure how this whole training process is going to work. The only thing Jenny and I usually run to is Walmart, Waffle House and the beach sooooo…🤷🏼‍♀️

Not gonna lie…13.1 miles of running does ABSOLUTELY nothing for me. I’ve RUN/walked a ton of 5K’s and NEVER got that runner’s high…EVER. Remember that mile we had to run at the beginning of the school year and then had to run it again at the end of the school year? I dreaded those days worse than test days! 😂

I think maybe I’ll just try to walk a mile today. Maybe a little over a mile tomorrow. Maybe not. We’ll seeeee… 🏃🏼‍♀️😲🚫

Anybody out there feel like you have to apologize or justify EVERY freaking thing? I bet some of you are nodding your head. I’m definitely nodding mine. Exhausting, right?

Not one to normally make bold statements using memes…but I am with this one.

Seriously.

Game Over…or Game On…depending on who’s reading this.

You ever have a broken heart, but you slap a smile on your face because that’s what you have to do? Yeah…me too.

Our family had to say goodbye to our sweet Buck last week. I know Steve and the boys are just as devastated because nobody has said a single word about it since it happened.

I’ve never internalized loss of life. I may privately reflect, but I’ve always been able to talk about it. But I just can’t with the loss of this little guy. It just hurts so much.

We’re actually about to discuss it on the air and I’ve asked to push it a few more minutes. Maybe by putting it out there, the pain will ease. Or maybe somebody else is hurting and they will relate. I don’t know. I’m just sad. Paralyzed with sadness, actually.

I hope he crossed the 🌈 Bridge knowing that he was so loved. I don’t know that I can ever have another dog. Everybody says that time will change my mind. I’m just not sure.

So please know that if I haven’t returned your call or text…I’m just sad. I’ll continue to go through the motions of looking for humor or something positive to keep my mind busy…but as so many of you know…it’s tough.

My job has been a blessing and a curse. How do you make people smile when you feel like your heart has been ripped out of your chest? Then again…thank God for this job that gives me an opportunity to turn off the pain for a few hours each morning.

I’ll just appreciate the blessing for now.

I miss my Buck.

There’s no telling how long these bird butts have had toilet paper on them. God knows how many guests have used this bathroom and noticed. Go ahead. Swipe to get closeups.

Did the attorney who handled my re-fi closing see this back in May? Any of my friends? What about my exterminator two weeks ago? There’s no telling.

Bird Butt Toilet Paper Art.

Unbelievable. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Bailey, we’re so proud of you! We may even run one with you before the end of the year.

Probably not, but maybe. 😂

We’ve been going through SO MUCH STUFF as Steve prepares to move out of the house we shared. Over the weekend, my job was to go through all of the storage containers I made for the boys’ school work. 😳

I had a tote for each child from every year of preschool through elementary school.

I kept EVERY piece of paper that came home with them. Sweet Lawwwwd. What was I thinking?!? 🤦🏼‍♀️

The preschool stuff was the most fun to go through with all of the crafts and pictures. That’s the majority of the stuff I kept. I’ll never be able to thank those teachers enough for the sweet keepsakes. My all-time favorites were the Mother’s Day questionnaires they filled out with the kids’ answers.

Here is part of Connor’s from 2004. He was four years-old and pretty much had me figured out. I guess I was a crazy cleaning lady back then too! At least I’ve been consistent!😂

And he signed it CoMMor. Hadn’t quite figured out those N’s yet. 💗💗💗
