There are a few things I’ve learned in my 40-plus years on this planet, including that it’s hard to feel motivated to exercise when you’re wearing an oversized Cookie Monster T-shirt and dreaming about pancakes.
While many people around the world will celebrate May Day today, for others among us the real holiday happens three days from today. Sunday is Star Wars Day. Never heard of it? Neither had I until a handful of years ago, when I worked with former WDAY-TV meteor-ologist Daryl Ritchison – a self-proclaimed Star Wars Geek.
He’s as synonymous with April as Santa is with December.
Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker is on the news in April as often as John Wheeler. Wearing his trademark baseball cap, windbreaker and face full of stubble, he talks crest predictions and emergency preparedness.
I always cringe just a little around dance recital time.
I love watching my daughters perform, but I get the nervous sweats thinking about styling their hair for the big event. Curls, I can do (I still have hot rollers from the ’80’s). But if it’s a bun that’s required, I’m toast.
Here are a few things you probably don’t know about WDAY-TV anchor Kerstin Kealy: Her nickname is “Sheriff,” she coaches girls’ basketball in her free time and she has the most wicked of all golf swings.
If you’ve ever had “Go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras” on your bucket list, better get a move on. This is the weekend to do it. Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday” which is next Tuesday. It’s a day to indulge prior to Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Lenten season. New Orleans marks Mardi Gras with parades, parties and photos you wouldn’t want to share on Facebook.
I find any excuse I can to bake a cake: birthdays, new babies, going away parties, boredom, you name it and I bake it. I even baked a cake after watching Season 3 of “Downton Abbey.” I think I figured buttercream frosting would help me forget the depressing turn of events in the Crawley family.
If you’re like a lot of Americans (except maybe those living in Seattle) the highlight of the recent blowout Super Bowl wasn’t the game play or even the less than groundbreaking commercials, it was the food. We pig out that day and we like it! Well, now you have another chance. It might not be the Super Bowl, but why not throw a Winter Olympics party?
The Winter Olympics are just two weeks away and I’m as excited as Al Michaels calling the Russian game. When it comes to Olympics, make mine winter, please. The summer games are great, but there’s something about the winter sports. I remember being so inspired by Dorothy Hamill’s figure skating gold in the 1976 Winter Olympics that my sister and I set our alarms to start training the very next morning. We lasted about 20 minutes at the nearby outdoor rink before home and hot chocolate called. Would-be fame and glory shattered by Swiss Miss.
They are those nasty little food surprises that can wreck your day. You think you’re being healthy by choosing granola for breakfast over a plate of bacon only to find out, calorically speaking, that the bacon can be the better choice.
