One year News-aversary and the Rockets game
Last year on the 2nd of January I was interviewed for a little news segment about Shoe of the Month clubs. I mostly did the spot because being on TV was on my bucket list, so when they put the word out they were looking for someone who was a Shoe Dazzle member, I jumped on it! KHOU reporter Tiffany Craig came to the house with one camera man, and talked to me about shoes and my feelings on the clubs. We actually spoke on camera for quite awhile, and they took a couple lines from it for the show. But I suppose that's how it always goes. When it was posted on their website after airing on the local channel 11 news, a very mean woman posted hateful comments about my appearance in reply, so I didn't show the video to anyone who hadn't seen it live. But to heck with her. One of the comments she made was that I needed a bra of the month club, but if you look you will see my belt is askew and rising higher in the middle so it looks like my chest is down to my waist. Stupid lady. I'm still self conscious about that. But whatever. Here is the video, or at least my part in it (another lady was interviewed first, so you'll see some shots of her mixed in too).

Also last night I got to go to my first Houston Rockets basketball game! A really amazing organization called LifeGift held a contest on their Facebook and Twitter pages asking when national donate life month was. I was the first to reply that it was April, so I got two tickets. It was FREEEEEZING cold outside, and security made my husband throw away his teeny tiny pocket knife that is attached to his keys (it was the size of small nail clippers) but it was definitely still worth it. We got to sit in the press box, which was really nice. Comfy seats, a nice atmosphere, and not as crowded as regular seating. There was a Chinese couple sitting next to us who kept screaming in Mandarin the entire time, but I didn't mind it too much. They seemed like they were having a great time, too. We ended up winning, so that was a bonus.
Have you registered to be an organ donor yet? If not, you should. My best friend's husband had a life saving heart transplant in 2012, so I am extremely grateful for everyone who says YES to donate for life. What are you waiting for? GO REGISTER!!
