Good morning and Happy Monday!

Here is the latest news in my world. My father in law was here last week and we went to the Fagan WWII Fighter Museum and Air Show.  Wonderful show.

I recommend all Minnesotans make the trip to Granite Falls to take in this show once per year.

www.FaganFighterswwiimuseum.org

The show included fighters, war re-enactments and wonderful aerostunts.

Check it out next year and also go to the museum anytime to see their displays.

For news that doesn’t matter..Kim Kardashian is having a boy in December and Jake Lloyd was arrested after a high speed chance in South Carolina.  He is the boy who played Anakin Skywalter.

Radio Show

June 11th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Hi all,

Today  is my first step to possibly getting my own radio show.  I’m doing a demo in Northfield for a program called Metro Live!

I’m going to have fun with my guests and we will talk about food, books, news and anything else that strikes our fancy.

I’ve always wanted to either be a columnist or a radio show host.  I love to discuss current events from movies to books to celebrity gossip to food.  That is what this should will be all about.

To check out the radio station go to www.kymnradio.net.

Also, as a follow up to my trapeze experience last week, the Twin Cities Trapeze Center is having a show this Saturday at 8 pm.

Tickets are $5 per person.

Flying Through the Air…

June 9th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Many times people will talk about their bucket lists.  I want to travel to Australia.  I want to go bungee jumping.  I want to see Paris.   However many times people do not just do it.  I recommend just doing it.  It can be very stressful and the control is not your own but the payoff is unreal.

Last weekend I participated in a trapeze lesson in St. Paul.  I’m bruised sore and have a sprained ankle but I did it!

I highly recommend trying new things.  Get out of your comfort zone and try!

Here is the proof. I’m climbing the 22 foot ladder to the trapeze platform!

We aren’t afraid to take risks here at Lien PR.

I’m a little nervous and a lot excited.  This Saturday morning I will be flying on the trapeze.  Last Christmas I made a remark about wanting to run away to the circus.  My husband listened and bought me a gift card to a trapeze class.  Yeah!  I think!

I go Friday morning to try my hand at running away to the circus.

Here is the link for anyone wanting to do the same.

I’ll send pictures. http://www.twincitiestrapeze.com/

Why is failure a good thing?  That is the topic Mehdi Toozhy tackled in his blog featured on the Changing Behavior Network.

http://www.thechangingbehaviornetwork.com/

Mehdi’s book, Keys to Success at School and Beyond is a manual for helping your child or anyone through the tough times in school and life.  Toozhy was born in Iran but left home at age 13 to attend school in Europe.  He had to learn many life lessons very quickly.

Go to www.MehdiToozhy.com for more information.

Also, this week USA put out a great article all about publicist.  They focused on publicist in LA with the stars but it drove home the point that the life is not glamorous.

Check it out!

A Before and After Look

May 28th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Happy Throwback Thursday!

I can’t believe it’s been three years since I started getting healthy. I started my journey in the winter of 2015 by buying a treadmill and doing Weight Watchers.  I did not have a focused goal but I wanted to fit into my clothes and have my weight start with a 1 instead of a 2.

So I began my journey at 225.  I used the treadmill every night for 30 minutes with arm weights.  I also drank a ton of water.  I drank 32 ounces in the morning, and then another 32 during they day and another during my work out.

It was a struggle but the weight started to fall off.

I kept to a strict 1600 to 1800 calories per day.  I began to care about what went into my body.

I’m not going to tell you I never fall off the wagon.  Holidays are a struggle and I love sugar!  I feel bad but the next day I begin again.

Today I’m posting a before and after photo.

What a difference three years make!

New books

May 20th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

There are so many celebrity authored books out there.  It takes a lot of work to write a book and it seems there are so few celebrities who do it well.  There are celebrities who write children’s books, cookbooks and memoirs. I often wonder how many of the celebrity books would get rejected if they were presented under different names.

It was just announced today that Julianna Margulies is going to publish a children’s book called Three Magic Balloons.  It will be published by Random House Books for Young Readers.  The book is based on her father Paul’s unpublished work.  Paul Margulies was an advertising executive who came out with the Alka-Selzer ad – Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz.

Another book was announced today.  Viking announced that it would publish Barbra Streisand’s memoir in 2017.  I’m a huge Streisand fan and I can’t wait to read this book!  She has experienced so much in life and in entertainment. I’m sure she will be honest about her experiences and will have many lessons to each us!

Here are some other celebrity memoirs worth a second look.

Prime Time by Jane Fonda

Knock Wood by Candiace Bergan

Moving Pictures by Ali MacGraw
