From Yahoo:

1. Travel.

Traveling is the one of the most exciting things you can do … and something that becomes nearly impossible once you have a kid. Sure, you can schlep your kid from Morocco to Thailand, staying in hostels, but do you really want to? Probably not. Traveling is best when it's done solo or with your partner-in-crime.

2. Sleep late.

Take advantage of those lazy Saturdays and Sundays. Sleep until 3pm if you want to, and then take a nap after dinner just because you can. You're not only indulging in something you can virtually kiss goodbye once you have a kid; you're also building up on sleep in preparation for when you don't have any at all.

3. Have sex on the kitchen floor.

Actually, have sex all over your home. Do it now, everywhere. Do it before you have to worry about a toddler wandering in, giving you and your partner 30 questions about why you're naked on the floor, moaning wildly.

4. Be spontaneous.

From sex on the floor to booking a last minute flight to Paris, just do it. Relish in the fact that you don't have to plan things months in advance, and you don't have to feel guilty about wanting to do things sans your little bundle of joy.

5. Enjoy alone time as a couple.

Before you have a baby, you really want to take advantage of it just being you and your husband or partner. You really want to explore your relationship, sexually and otherwise, and really focus on your love for each other. You want make sure you have one hell of an unbreakable bond before you bring someone else into the picture.

6. Enjoy your "me" time.

Not only do you want to focus on your love for each other, but your love for yourself. Go away for a weekend alone, spend time with your friends, or just cuddle up in bed with a book, completely undisturbed from the outside world. This is your moment to commit to yourself and the relationship you have with yourself before your days and nights are full of interruptions.

7. Spoil yourselves.

Spoil yourselves rotten. Get the expensive bottle of wine. Go to the fancy restaurants with the month long wait. Buy the designer clothes now; eventually, you'll only want to wear stuff from the Gap because it will be covered in spit-up 90 percent of the time.

8. Spend time with other people's kids.

Even if you know for a fact that you absolutely, positively, want to have a kid, you might want to spend some time with the kids of your friends and family first.

This isn't to suggest that watching your nephew throwing a fit over having to share his light saber with his brother will dissuade you in any way from having a little monster of your own, but it's a good idea to give yourself a heads up as to what to expect. Even the most angelic babies can have their jerky moments.

9. Open a savings account specifically for your child.

In between all that traveling and spoiling yourself, it's also important to financially prepare for your baby. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, it will cost a middle-income couple just over $245,000 to raise a child to the age of 18.

And that's before they get into Harvard, which is projected to cost an undergrad student $64,000 to $69,000 for this upcoming school year. Yes, that's per year. Although, maybe you'll get lucky and have a super smart kid who gets a full ride.

10. Enjoy being a kid.

Once you have a kid, you no longer get to be a kid yourself. So, before you hand over the reigns to someone else in your family, as far as the kid thing goes, live it up while you can.

Enjoy that your responsibilities are minimal, that you don't need to be home at a certain time, and that you can drink the milk directly out of the bottle without your partner freaking out about "germs that will kill the baby." Hold onto your childlike ways as long as you can … and then grow the eff up.

I feel a little terrified when I look at these things, what about you? Any interest in buying or wearing a 'Facekini'? It looks like a SKI MASK, only it's for the beach.

It's made out of a bathing suit material, and you wear it over your head to protect yourself from the sun . . . and from any jellyfish stings you might get when you swim.

It's been popular in China since it was invented in 2012.

And now . . . it looks like the Facekini is coming to America. Help us all.

Some fashion designers in New York have been working on a line of Facekinis to try and break them into the American market.

There's no word on when they could come out . . . or if any of us would even want them once they do.

I think we've all been on the road trip with a kid or was that kid that said "Are we there yet?" It's become a joke now that we are older to sometimes say it as soon as we hit the road. But how soon during a roadtrip are kids saying it?

A new survey found has found the answer for us: the average kid starts asking "Are we there yet?" exactly two hours and 23 minutes into a road trip.

And if the answer is "No" . . . look out. Because 14 minutes later, they'll start fighting and arguing with you, or their brothers and sisters. Here are the other two things they found . . .

The average summer road trip is three hours and 49 minutes.

Showering at night AND in the morning can be overkill, because it dries your skin out. It also washes away the good bacteria that protects it. Here are three times it's better to shower at night . . .

1. When you wore sunblock, or had a lot of make-up on. Washing your face is okay, but the steam from a shower does a better job of cleaning off residue.

2. When you work in a place that isn't very sterile, like a hospital or a daycare. In that case, shower at night so you don't get into bed covered in germs.

3. When you went to the gym that day, or did anything that made you sweat a lot.

Now here are three times you should shower in the MORNING instead . . .

1. When you need to shave before work. Showering softens the hair up, so shaving is easier and you don't get razor burn.

2. If you're a night sweater. Obviously if you sweat all night and don't shower, you'll feel gross all day.

3. If you have really oily skin. Oil starts building up while you sleep, and if you have REALLY oily skin, it's probably okay to shower twice a day. You definitely don't want to shower more than once if you have DRY skin though.

Do you sleep on your back, your side, or your stomach? Whichever one it is, there are specific consequences you might not know about. Here are four side effects that have to do with the way you sleep . . .

1. Sleeping on your stomach can cause back pain, because your spine isn't supported. And it makes you sleep with your head turned to one side, which is hard on your neck.

2. If you sleep on your back, you're more likely to snore. But as long as you don't prop your head up with too many pillows, it's better for your spine than sleeping on your side or your stomach.

3. Sleeping on your left side puts more strain on your internal organs, including your liver, lungs, and stomach. Doctors usually tell pregnant women to sleep on their left side though, because it increases circulation to the baby.

4. Sleeping on your right side can cause heartburn. It's not clear why, but several studies have found you're more likely to wake up with heartburn if you fall asleep on your right side, opposed to your left.

Regardless of how you sleep, using an extra pillow for support can help. If you sleep on your back, put it under the arch of your spine . . . if you're a side sleeper, put it between your knees . . . and if you're on your stomach, put it right under your hips.

And if you want to learn about more positions...check out the article below!

It's official: There is nothing left to invent. I mean . . . that's the only explanation for how someone thought of THIS.

Someone just created a cat accessory called Twinkle Tush. It's a jewel that covers up your cat's rear end.

It's perfect for anyone who hates staring right into their cat's butt when it walks around with its tail up. Just buy the Twinkle Tush and you can see a little blue sparkle instead.

The jewel has a cord attached that you slip around your cat's tail, so the jewel dangles down . . . and when the cat actually needs to poop, the jewel will naturally hang just out of the way.

There's something that just feels right about this. In spite of the craft beer movement, scotch snobs, and bubblegum flavored vodka, America's most popular beer is Bud Light . . . and America's most popular liquor is Jack Daniel's.

An app called BARTRENDr managed to overcome its horrible name to do something interesting. They looked at data from more than 700,000 people to find the most popular beer and liquor in every state.

Bud Light was the most popular beer in 33 states and Jack Daniel's was the most popular liquor in 16. Fireball whiskey was a very close second . . . it's the most popular liquor in 15 states.

While most states made fairly traditional picks, there are a few crazy ones. Two states have a craft beer as their favorite: Nebraska went with Founders Brewing Curmudgeon Old Ale, and Utah went with Polygamy Nitro Porter.

For liquor, Arkansas and Idaho went with Evan Williams bourbon . . . South Carolina went with George Dickel whiskey . . . and Maryland went with Svedka vodka.

This is one of those fast food creations in another country that HAS to make its way to America.

KFC in Hong Kong is now selling fried chicken covered in PIZZA. It's a pizza-chicken hybrid called Napoli Crispy Pizza Chicken.

Basically, it's a piece of fried chicken that has marinara sauce, mozzarella, and cheddar cheese melted on top of the breading.

And because it's KFC, one of the ads shows the pizza chicken being offered with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy.

There's no word if they're thinking about bringing it to the U.S. But since Pizza Hut DID finally import that pizza with the little hot dogs in the crust, there's always a chance.

Everything is slimming down these days. Oreo Cookies are no exception. Earlier today, Oreo's owners announced that "Oreo Thins" would soon be hitting the store shelves. The "Spohisticated" design is meant to appeal to grown-ups and will still boast the same cookie-to-creme ratio that a real Oreo has. The difference? Well, where 3 regular Oreo cookies meant 160 calories, you can now eat 4 Oreo thins and take in only 140 calories.

Now keep in mind that the new cookies are meant for ADULTS- so that means that these Oreos are not meant to be pulled apart or dunked. They will sell for the same price as real Oreos and a disclaimer provided by the company- Oreo Thins are NOT a diet food (really?)

I think I'm gonna stick to the original Oreo cookie. How bout you?

Okay. For most of us, our first video game console was either a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) or a Sony Play Station. The thought of being able to only ask for ONE of them from Santa for Christmas (I flipped a coin and asked for the Nintendo) but what if there was a hybrid game machine in the early 1990's with the design and controllers of a Super Nintendo and the CD-ROM concept of a Play Station?

Some 25 years ago, a Nintendo/Sony hybrid wasn't so strange of a concept as last week, the "holy grail of gaming" was uncovered. Behold, the "Nintendo Play Station" that was first introduced in 1991. only some 200 prototypes were made before a firey falling out between the companies (Google it for the history). Over the weekend, close up pictures emerged of one of the prototypes. Able to play both Nintendo Game Cartridges AND Sony's CD-ROMS, and featuring those familiar Nintendo controllers. As a 90's kid, I can't help but think of what could have been if this partnership had worked out (As I have a Sony Playstation3 on my entertainment center today).

(Associated Press) PANCEVO, Serbia — Normally, Leo would run away at the sight of a bigger dog. The small dachshund liked most to cuddle with his owners or ride in the back seat of the family car. But, one day Leo showed that true bravery knows no limits.

When a raging bull-mastiff cross-breed last year attacked a 10-year-old girl, Leo fearlessly jumped to her rescue, barking and biting at the dog way above his size and strength. Leo paid with his life, but the citizens of this northern Serbian town have not forgotten.

Two weeks ago, a life-size bronze statue of Leo was put up next to a children's playground in Pancevo's city park, honoring the dog and teaching kids about animal friendship and sacrifice. An alert-looking Leo, his head raised above his stretched paws, now rests proudly on a white base surrounded by flowers.

Nikolina Vucetic, the girl Leo defended, often comes by.

"I am so glad Leo has a monument. He turned out to be a real hero," Vucetic told The Associated Press. "He helped me."

The initiative to honor Leo was pushed through by an animal rights group after it gained widespread citizens' support through social networks and local media. The "Pets" group says Leo's is the first dog monument in Serbia, which has huge problems with stray dogs and notoriously low standards in animal welfare and protection.

"The idea was to raise awareness about how important animals are to us and how they are always there for us when we need them," activist Ivan Kurajov explained.

Vucetic, now a skinny 12-year-old, recalled returning home from a friend's house when the neighbor's guard dog came down the street, jumped at her from behind and grabbed her arm. The dog nailed the girl to the ground, pulling her left and right with his jaws.

"I screamed and Leo rushed out barked and ran around, biting him on the leg," Vucetic said, showing the scars from the attack. "When the dog let go of me, he looked around and then stormed at Leo."

Leo didn't stand a chance. Despite efforts by veterinarians, his injuries were too severe and Leo died two days later.

Owner Biljana Ilic said Leo was a "funny, happy dog," who liked most to jump straight into the lap of whoever came into the house, happily licking the guest.

"That dog was just too big and Leo was so small," the 23-year-old added, her eyes filling with tears. The family has a new dachshund named Djole, a gift from local breeders touched by Leo's heroism.

In the Pancevo park, children have been flocking around Leo's monument, patting the dog's head and his big ears. Some have taken pictures next to Leo, laid flowers or left dog treats by the statue.

The inscription on the monument reads: "To all the small heroes with big hearts."

detox.net analyzed America's alcohol consumption from 2011 to 2013. The made lists based on what people reported drinking from more than 400,000 interviews. The result? WISCONSIN is the drunkest state in America.

On the self-reports, 65.33% of Wisconsin residents admitted to having one ore more drinks withing the last 30 days before recieving the survey. rounding out the top five were Washington D.C., Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

The soberest states? Utah, West Verginia, Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama.

A new survey found that 75% of people argue in the car...
The top three things we argue about are backseat driving, frustration over traffic and disagreeing about how to handle other drivers.

You don't have to spend a fortune to show your love...A recent survey on the Psychology of love of over 4,000 adults found that simple acts of kindness are often appreciated the most!

Tell them something that you love about them, no matter how minor or seemingly insignificant it is.
Let them have the last slice of pizza
Clean for them, especially things you know that they hate doing, like vacuuming or changing the sheets.

Ah... The Red River Valley Fair is next week already! The concerts, the food, the rides, and those carnival games that I JUST CAN'T WIN!!!!!!!!

Almost as if they read my mind (and felt my frustration) the latest edition of Men's Health appeared in my mailbox with a guide on how to win carnival games. Naturally, as a host, I can't not share this information with my friends who have felt the struggle of trying to win that ring toss game for an oversized Minion, which like a dog catching its' tail, we have no idea what we would do with it if we ever won it.

Here is the Men's Health How-To Win 8 Carnival Games.
1. Balloon Darts
Aim for the SHINY balloons. They are shiny and reflecting light because they are too overinflated and hence, ready to burst anyways. By the way, throw hard and arch your dart so it is more likely to hit the top of the balloon where the latex is stretched the tightest.

2. Skee-Ball
Men's Health suggests not even trying for those 100-point holes (tempting, I know.) Instead, aim for that 40-point hole right in the middle. If you miss that, chances are you'll land in either the 30-point hole below or (better yet) the 50-point hole above.

3. Water Gun Races
The trick is to watch before playing. Study to see which gun is the most accurate. Then, step right up and bay for two games on the spot. Two? Yes, two. The first game is to callibrate your aim then you are fine-tuned for the second game.

4. Cat Rack Target Throw
Okay... I guess I don't even remember this game, but whatever! Don't throw straight at the cat. Instead, Mens Health suggests throwing at an angle diazonally across the booth. THrow hard enough and the ball should defect off the first cat onto another boosting your score. Batter up?

5. Basketball Shooting
Yes... It's winnable. No secret taht the rim is squeezed tight meaning anything less than a swish will bounce back. Furthermore, the hoop is closer than a free throw so DON'T SHOOT IT AS A FREE THROW! Modify your throw with a higher than normal trajectory to make it in. And 1...

6. Basket Toss
Much like basketball shooting, the baskets are designed to work against you. Plus, the ball is bouncier. To avoid any bounce-outs, Mens Health says use a soft, underhanded lob to get the ball jst inside the front lip of the basket. Pro Tip... Add a little spin for good meaure!

7. Milk Bottles
Mens Health says to think "Angry Birds" when going for that milk bottle pyramid. Aim for the bottom middle bottle. When you knock out the tower's support system, the chances are higher that the rest of the bottles will come crashing down.

8. Ring Toss
Trying to get that ring hooked around the old pop bottles... Frustrating! Of course, the throw needs to land PERFECTLY to avoid being deflected by the surrounding bottles. Mens Health says to couch down and flip the ring like a frisbee twords a FRONT ROW bottle. Why? Well, at least one side is free of bottle blockers!

Should any of these cheets work, please let me know the success story- I'll probably be right there with you on game row of he Red River Vallyey Fair; and maybe someday I'll win that oversized Minion.

I am betting this looks quite cool but at the end of the day is your health really worth it? See the latest fad in body art and sunburning all at the same time.

Sunburn Art Is Such a Bad, Bad Idea (But Still Impressive!)
