Rodrigo eventually became the sole producer of the KOST Morning Show in February of 2000. From celebrity interviews in Beverly Hills to exploring Mayan ruins, he has been through every adventure the morning show has thrown at him! Rodrigo loves to go to the movies and travel. His guilty pleasure is to watch professional wrestling: "I think that's why I'm single.

Our Producer Rodrigo asked me if I wouldn't mind continuing to post for Facebook, and Twitter, and our Blog since our assistant is out still.. So of course I'm shamelessly plugging my ballet debut!!!!!! Wouldn't you? ;) ;)

TOP 3 HOLIDAY APPS!
1! You need a personal assistant. So here it is. And, it' all in the form of an itty bitty app on your phone. Making a BIG difference in my life, the KUYAM app has helped me manage & schedule all of my appointments. Set up your routine & discover new places for your needs, local & rated by your neighbors. Genius.
2! You need someon to wrap you gifts! What if I told you a famous New York fashion designer will do it for you? The lifestyle icon Tory Burch has hands-down the prettiest boxes & presentation of any gifts I've been e-shopping this year. Get her app & all of her best shopping, entertinament, & style tips. LOVE!
3! You need to shop on a budget! They don't call it "Easy Pay" for nothin! It's how I purchased our fancy new Keurig at home. It was from QVC! And you don;t have to sign up for a membership that costs money, or has minimums, or any element of hassle at all. They just want to help- like LIVE customer service on the phone and super-extended return time on gifts. The QVC app is one of my top 5 on my iphone right now ;) "All the joy..None of the stress"
P.S> Bonus App. Get it now, use it later. I shed those last 10 lbs of babyweight by tracking every morsel of food I consumed in the MyFitnessPal App. It started out as a "Yeah, right. Like I'll ever have time fro this nonsense." into an addictive video-game type of enjoyment I got out of pluggin in my food & finding ways to cut calorie- an online challenge that pays in pounds. Maybe this is a New Year app ;)
When we got the sad news yesterday of Nelson Mandela's passing our hearts were heavy, but the many inspirational quotes he left us with gave us strength. Here are some of our favorites:
“Social equality is the only basis of human happiness.”
“Difficulties break some men but make others.”
“I came to accept that I have no right whatsoever to judge others in terms of my own customs.”
“When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace.”
“When people are determined they can overcome anything.”
