This is the Inspiration for Lorde's Royals song

Every wonder what inspired Lorde to pen Royals? It's not about the Royal Family as I thought. Actually it's because of a photo in National Geographic of Kansas City Royals third baseman George Brett. Lorde said the word "Royals" on his jersey struck a chord with her and inspired her to write the song.

What happens when you go to the store hungry...

So we're having a potluck here today in the building and decided to do a "Bacon" theme. Works for me!! I have an incredible recipe for homemade mac/cheese (I'd tell you what's in it but you'd have a heart attack just reading the ingredients) and upgraded it with bacon. Turned out amazing-there will be NO leftovers.

But, of course, I needed to go grocery shopping for the ingredients before I cooked last night. And I was hungry. Yeah...going to the store when you're hungry, well, EVERYTHING started sounding good. Including chocolate chip cookies. Wait...chocolate chip cookies AND BACON!! Yep, I made them and they turned out GREAT. You've got the sweet of the cookie and then the salt of the bacon...good gracious!! And yes, I cooked the bacon first and then mixed it in the cookie dough before baking. Will definitely make this again. It was also suggested for the bacon potluck that people just make bacon, strips of bacon, cut into 3 or 4 inch pieces and then we could have dipping sauces for the bacon. Don't get me started!!

On a separate note, I will be going back to the gym. Next week:) Have a great one-Jennifer

Princess Elsa Dress Is The Must Have Item

Remember when "Tickle Me Elmo" prompted people to trample each other? The newest "hot toy" is here-- and parents are forking over thousands of dollars for it. It all stems from Disney's Frozen, which is now officially the top-grossing animated film in box office history. Little girls are all asking for Princess Elsa's blue gown, and parents are scrambling to find it. This has led to people sewing their own versions of the dress and selling them on Etsy and eBay for a thousand dollars or more. One mom told TODAY, "I didn't realize this movie was going to be such an obsession. We saw this film and then out of nowhere, she wanted all this stuff and it was unavailable." One toy retail expert says, "You just can't get it. It's really sold out and it's probably the hottest thing out there right now."

New Hurricane Storm Surge Risk Maps

National forecasters will be introducing new maps for the Atlantic hurricane season this year that show not only the potential winds, but the potential for flooding from storm surges. The maps are being introduced because it was found that most Americans living on hurricane-vulnerable coastlines were paying too much attention to the wind strength predictions and not enough to storm surge in deciding whether to evacuate. Storm surge specialist Jamie Rhome of the National Hurricane Center said, "We are not a storm surge savvy nation. Yet storm surge is responsible for over half the deaths in hurricanes." The new maps, which will be issued 48 hours before landfall and updated every six hours, will enable people to see whether their property is likely to flood.
