So…yesterday, one of my kids sent a freaked out text to the entire family. She thought she got banned from Facebook and wanted us to help her figure out which one of her posts was “offensive.” Okay, I just gotta tell you that this particular kid is Ms. Positivity, so unless FB just got sick of all of her upbeat posts, her chances of getting banned are ZERO. (On the other hand, I’m surprised one of her sisters hasn’t been put in time out! 😂 KIDDING!) Since my FB seemed to be working properly, I suggested that she reboot her phone, reinstall the app, send a problem report to FB…blah, blah, blah.
Later, I was surprised to learn that there was INDEED a HUGE FB & IG outage BUT it DIDN’T happen to everybody! REALLY? Hmmmm…interesting. I wonder who could be responsible for THAT?!!!
So, if you experienced the outage yesterday, sorry. – KW
Yeah, thanks. Thanks a LOT!
Because if it does, 2.5 hours is clearly not enough! I mean, that’s only 3.33 episodes of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, right? Anyway, with streaming off the table, how much free time is good for you? Personally, I take about three hours.** – KW

If you watched the video of Jimmie Allen & Abby Anderson’s beautiful rendition of Bradley Cooper & Lady Gaga’s “Shallow”, you may not have noticed one missing element…as Abby jokingly points out.
Ummmmmmmm well I thought I did. 🤷🏽♂️. My bad. https://t.co/W3g89jryvM

HAHA! But seriously…how can you recreate perfection, right?

Yoga, like Peeps, seems to be popping up everywhere and in every way. There’s hot yoga, goat yoga, aerial yoga, dog yoga…and now RAGE YOGA! Yes, you can now enjoy yoga with beer, swearing and some LOUD heavy metal. The purpose of Rage Yoga? To help you feel empowered. Does it work? Well, depends on whether you’re okay with practicing a lot of pretzel poses with your beer and potty mouth. Who knows? It might help you finally master that Mayurasana pose.
Not counting the revamped diet fare, it’s been over 10 years since Coca-Cola introduced a new flavor. Get ready! Starting February 25th, look for Orange Vanilla Coke & Orange Vanilla Coke Zero! Those who have already tried it says it tastes like an orange creamsicle. Mmmmmm!
Little Baylor Mooney of Reno NV may be only two years old, but she’s already channeling her inner Beyonce complete with the wind in her hair and some pretty awesome moves!
I wanna be like Baylor!
Just think. Before Valentine’s Day, we didn’t even know this guy existed! We didn’t know Miranda was even dating anyone! But leave it to the internet to find a little gem like this!
Miranda’s new husband Brendan McLaughlin is not afraid to dance in public, so he’ll have no problem being in the spotlight now.
Did your favorites make the list?

I knew that would get your attention. It sure got mine!
Trending on Twitter right now: #TakeATuneToBreakfast
Users are changing the titles and lyrics of popular songs and adding breakfast fare.
Some hilarious examples:
* I would do anything for love, but I won’t do decaf
* Don’t go bacon my heart
* Count on Chocula
* Pour some syrup on me
* Omlettes go crazy
* Hash brown eyed girl
All this breakfast stuff is making me hungry. Gotta go!
So, this viral thing has lasted longer than “what color is the dress”, it seems. A publication released a list of favorites in order of best to worst and social media users are not having it!
Personally, I never thought about who had the best fries. I usually don’t order any, but when I do, it’s because I’m so hangry that I need something to take the edge off before the next meal. But if I had to choose…hmmm….
Taco Bell’s Nacho Fries! Don’t @ me. Or do. Twitter/IG/FB @karenwest973
There’s nothing worse than getting a loaded salad with the lettuce falling off the plate every time you take a bite. Makes your eating space look like a toddler just played with his lunch. IMO, Michael Ray is 5000 percent CORRECT. What do YOU say? Does your salad belong in a bowl? Tweet your response! @karenwest973 @973TheEagle – Karen
Yeah, like we really need help with doing that, right? HAHA! But…have you ever wanted to pretend to be an authentic wine snob? Even for just a day? Well, here’s your chance! This blog post contains all kinds of great ideas to celebrate the day like a boss! Enjoy some 3 buck Chuck in a fancy glass! Impress your friends! Just do so responsibly, okay?
Chris Stapleton’s wife posted this flashback pic for Valentine’s Day! Wow!!!!
FRIDAY!!!!! I think Kelsea Ballerini has inspired my weekend plans. Add a few rom-coms from Netflix and some comfy sweat pants and I’m set! So…what’s up for the weekend? Shoutout on Twitter @karenwest973 – Karen

I haven’t celebrated Valentine’s Day in it’s traditional manner for many years. When I do celebrate, it’s usually about a week after the big day. The sales are fabulous and the restaurants are less crowded. That’s a win-win as far as I’m concerned. The main reason I wait? My daughter Allison was born on Valentine’s Day, so I’ve always set aside that day specifically for her. Her birthday. For me, it’s all about her.
I brought up this example because there are many reasons some people do not take part in the big day. I believe EVERYDAY is the opportunity to show love whether we do so with gifts or not. And celebrating Valentine’s Day at a later date definitely has it’s perks, that’s for sure! But here is something that’s heartbreaking. According to this survey, 53% of women would dump their significant other if they didn’t receive a gift on Valentine’s Day.
So, what do you say? How important is receiving a gift on Valentine’s Day for you? And would you take into consideration your significant other’s reason for not celebrating the day? Tweet your response to @karenwest973
And…Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!
Don’t ya just hate it when people write something really nice about you but then post the worst pic they can find of you? ME TOO!!!! Chris “Captain America” Evans had the best reaction!
But Netflix Canada came to the rescue and fixed everything. HAHA!
We’ve all heard about naming a cockroach after your ex on Valentine’s Day, but I’ve never heard of this one…until now.
You can name a salmon after your ex and it will be fed to a thousand pound bear! And think about it! You’ll be helping out wildlife rehabilitation in the meantime! So, chin up! Wipe away those tears! You’ll be doing something good for the animal kingdom and the bears will be very grateful. Want to know more? Here ya go!
I’ve never had chicken and waffles before. Well, not together anyway. I’m not sure I would have it since fried foods, bread and sugar don’t fit into my diet. However, not saying I don’t like chicken and waffles. I think they’re fabulous. But I don’t think everything belongs in a cereal. And that’s what’s going to happen very soon. Post is releasing “Chicken and Waffle Honey Brunches of Oats” sometime in March and exclusively at Walmart. I hear that there’s NO actual meat in it, but there are fun drumstick shaped crunchies.
I am curious to find out if this DOES taste like chicken. So, if any of you try it, would you please enlighten me if it has even a hint of poultry flavor? I’ll take your word for it. #IAintEatingItYOUEatIt

But…of course…these are not the kind that Grandma would get you for Christmas, so you’ll have to go get ‘em yourself. I’ll take TWO please! 🙂
Believe it or not, I asked that very question to my friend yesterday. I mean, really! They’re cheesy and we know it. They have virtually the same plot and we know it. But for some reason, we can’t seem to drag ourselves away from them at this time of year. Amirite? Or am I the only one?
Maybe the bigger question should be what kind of chocolate goes with Hallmark Christmas Movies? Oh I knowwwwwww the answer to that one.
All of it.
The Deranged Easter Bunny pajamas are for sale just before the holidays. Stay warm and toasty in this pink nightmare while celebrating good tidings and joy with the family. They may want to have a couple of egg nogs first, tho.
BTW, saw a guy walking around the store wearing his. Guess he couldn’t wait. Haha!
I watched the original last year on Netflix. Yes, I know it’s cheesy. Yeah, the acting is kinda bad. Yeah, same plot as every other romantic Christmas movie, but gosh darn it! I LOVE them! It gets me in the Chriss-massy mood!
TOMORROW, November 20th…Christmas Prince, The Royal Wedding! Gotta get my snacks and wash my fuzzy pajamas!
I know I’m not the only one.
I wouldn’t be opposed to having these! I mean…THANKSGIVING…and chips! Woooo!!!!!
So my daughter says, “it’s too early for pumpkin spice lattes in August but it’s not too early for Christmas movies in October?”
And I said to her…”priorities.”
I think this will do the trick. If I can find them!
Only in my case, the tag was from Walmart.
We’ve all done it: Today, Duchess Meghan stepped off a plane and onto the red carpet in Nuku’alofa, Tonga, sporting a dress with the tag still attached. https://t.co/jcwfPZGxn4 (Photo: WireImage) pic.twitter.com/ONhkzM4Toy

HAHAHAHAHAHA! So true, right?
You know? They’re really not that bad!
Ever had one of those days when nothing went right and you just didn’t care? You were just meh right were you were? Haha! Yeah, me too. What do I do? Reach for the remote and watch romantic comedies and call it a day. And there might be wine & chocolate. #Winning
So, what are YOUR plans this holiday weekend? Mine will be completely lazy, I promise you with absolutely no regrets. Haha! Have a safe and wonderful weekend!
But at least I brushed my hair and put on makeup.
Nicole Kidman catches and releases giant hairy spider and releases him! Such bravery!
It’s like…it just doesn’t matter whether you love or hate the song…it makes you want to move! Right? Do you have those songs that will just make you break out in dance anywhere?
I think the world knows I hate to cook, but I love seafood. This lady gets my utmost respect for her efforts at steaming crabs for the first time. She definitely deserves that beer!
I’m not that girl who can’t wait for pumpkin spice season. As a matter of fact, I’m not really a fan unless it’s in pie and even then, I only want it during the Thanksgiving/Christmas season.
But this? Is a game changer. I’d try it. I mean, I don’t even think I’d have to wait until turkey day. And if I don’t like it, I’ll never have it again. Simple as that. Problem is, I may not get to try it any time soon. I have friends all over Hampton Roads looking for it or something similar to it close to home. No luck. So, if you happen to run across any, let us know where to get it!
Anybody lose a house?
Poor little prince!
Not today, Satan. Not today.
Gotta get one of these mats! Haha!!!!!
This one looks easy.
Yeah, yeah. It’s that whole Yanny vs Laurel thing again. But this time, let’s hear it from the source. Is it Yanny or Laurel?
Yeah, me neither.
Our Hogwarts acceptance letter finally arrived too?
Hahahahaha! C’mon Harry & Meghan!!!!!
Squirrel takes us on a hysterical tour!
Sigh…maybe someday, I’ll be a Jedi
