Best Places for a Kid’s Birthday Party in Victoria – Melissa’s Top Five

If you have a little one, you will definitely want to read this.

I believe birthday parties are more important than holidays because it's that one day out of the year to celebrate just them and make them feel extra-special. I have a seven year old boy so we have had many birthday parties at different places over the years. Every year I look for somewhere better than last year. The best part about having the party away from the house is there is no clean up. Here are a few places below you could host your child's birthday party.

Easter Eggs and Easter Traditions

Easter is almost here. I can’t wait to have all the kids over hunting for eggs and my favorite part the confetti eggs. When I was a little girl, we used to always find the perfect batch of wildflowers and take pictures in them with our baskets and Easter Bunnies. My twin sister Kelly enjoys when our grandma fills Easter Eggs with money which sometimes are dollar bills in them to hunt. It’s quite a scene to see us big grandkids hunt eggs but boy, is it fun. Families all have different traditions for Easter. Here are a few traditions people have.

Facebook – What You Can Learn

Facebook is the largest social network. I mean, is there really any others out there? And we all wonder what we did before it. Some of us update our status, some people pretend not to look at Facebook and won’t admit that they really do, all the time... stalking. And some us are actually using it as a tool to keep up to date with folks we wouldn’t otherwise have time to chat with on the phone as often as we’d like.

We will all admit we learn things about others. Sometimes, it's things we didn’t really want to know.

‘Secret Millionaire’ Doesn’t Fail To Inspire

I just got done watching 'Secret Millionaire' and all I can say is WOW.

My dear friend Monica Lassmann had told me about the show and how touching it was so I decided to watch it. This week's show was about Gary and Diane Heavin who are the co-owners of 'Curves'.

Gary and Diane left their wealthy lifestyles behind to spend a week in Houston's poverty-stricken Third Ward. They were given $6.50 per day to use for food while they were on their journey.

A Bet, a BBQ, a Bunch of Bald Heads

A bet is a bet, right?

The Nasty Cookers BBQ Team entered a BBQ cook off at Colet Inn this past weekend. The cook off benefited LJ Chumchal, who is battling Hodgkins Lymphoma. The bet was that if the Nasty Cookers won, they would allow LJ to shave their heads.

Brad Paisley at the Houston Livestock Show

Last week, many people headed to Houston to see the rodeo and see their favorite artist play live. One of our listeners, Vanessa Cantu, went to see Brad Paisley on Saturday with her husband, Oliver. Her favorite song is "Then" because it is their wedding song. Vanessa sees Brad as an artist who gets involved with the audeince and is a great live performer. She said, “He’s such a great person period!” They have seen him every year for the last 4 years and will continue to do so as long as he's there. I think Vanessa might be one of the biggest Brad Paisley fans.

Spring Break, A Lake, And A Bike [VIDEO]

Spring Break isn’t just for kids its for adults, too. Matt Apodackis is a guy who can pull off some crazy stuff... he rode a bike off a fishing pier into the lake this past Sunday. I think the funniest part was his first try when he didn’t make it to the lake and fell over. I felt bad for laughing because he was a little injured but he was a good sport and got back up and tried one more time. When he did finally did ride into the lake it was pretty funny. Here watch it for yourself.

How Are You Spending Spring Break?

It’s Spring Break and I know many of you are taking the time off from the daily chaos to just relax and spend time with your families. Many people go camping or take a trip somewhere to celebrate their spring break while others are taking a “staycation” and keeping close to home

Springtime is Here!

I am so happy it's almost spring time. You know what that means! Time to get outdoors and soak up the sunshine. I have to agree with my cousin Sarah in that I love driving by and seeing all these kids playing baseball. It's so rewarding to watch the kids advance from the first practice to the last game; from the kid who picked flowers in the outfield to catching the pop fly at the final game.

One of my girlfriends, Monica, enjoys the wildflowers, sunshine, time spent at the Riverwalk, rodeo, and just generally being outdoors. When she mentioned wildflowers, it reminded me of Easter time and how my mom would put my twin sister and me in matching dresses with our Easter baskets and then go find the prettiest wildflowers to take a photo by.

Why Is It So Hard To Get A Guy A Valentine?

I am usually a person who is ahead of the game on holidays and making sure our gifts are bought in advance of the actual holiday. But for some reason Valentine's Day just stumps me.

A guy can show up with flowers and a sweet card and a girl is happy as can be. Guys, on the other hand, are difficult to buy for and you have to be creative. Valentine's is a day to show your loved one how much you love and appreciate them so you don't want to just not get them anything.

Storage Wars

I don’t watch much TV but when I do it's usually reality TV. I found the show called Storage Wars on A&E last night. The show is about four different buyers who go to different storage units in search of hitting it big on others people’s stuff.

They get a peek of what's inside the storage unit and then an auctioneer auctions off the unit. It’s a gamble you could hit it big or go home empty handed.
