My Tire Blew Out On the Highway, This Man Helped Me [PHOTOS]

Just a normal, beautiful Thursday afternoon...during rush hour.

I was going about my regular day. Actually, it was a rare event that I was simply heading home after work without having something to get to last night. Alas, I still take the same route: Central Avenue to I-87 to Alternate Rt 7 to 787 and beyond.

My commute came to a rough, smokey halt by the Boght Rd overpass on alternate Rt7.

This is Why I Missed Florida-Georgia Line Last Night… [PHOTOS]

While you were gettin' your drink on and partying with friends listening to the musical stylings of the one and only Florida-Georgia Line, I wasn't singing along with you this time. I wasn't backstage or out by the GNA booth, I wasn't in a dressing room or up close to the stage taking pictures. I instead was out of breath and sweating my butt off!

I Met April the Giraffe and It Was Everything! [VIDEO]

My parents were like, "Marissa, what do you want to do for your birthday?"

I'm not a very materialistic person, I don't need much and I always get them experiences. Of course, I tend to surprise them and with the way my schedule is while they'd like to surprise me that's a bit difficult to do. So, when they asked, I picked the exact thing any 30-something would pick - "I want to see April the Giraffe!"

Movie Filming Fun At Albany International Airport [PHOTOS]

I had posted a couple of days ago that there would be some filming fun happening at the Albany International Airport and sure enough it's in progress right now!

The film, entitled "Departure" stars a couple familiar faces including Maisie Williams from "Game of Thrones" fame. Not everyone can get themselves over to the airport to see what's going on, so I thought I would bring it to you! Seeing behind the scenes stuff is always cool, so check out some of the stuff that's been popping up on social media!

Inside the Castle For Sale in Ballston Lake [PHOTOS]

Last week I posted about a castle that went up for sale in Ballston Lake. Yes, a castle.

It's actually been on the market for a bit, but I figured if I didn't know there was an actual castle in the Capital Region, you probably didn't either. Which, I was right - the post was shared hundreds of times!

Stores & Restaurants We Want In the Capital Region [PHOTOS]

There seem to be so many stores and restaurants closing around here lately. I mean, what gives?! It's not like we don't go out, right? I go out all of the time. So what has gone wrong with some of these places?

For them, it's too late. But, honestly, maybe they just weren't what we wanted. There are plenty of businesses, whether chains or locals from other areas

Protests Take Place At Albany International Airport on Sunday

Since the votes were counted and Donald Trump was labeled "President Elect," protests have become the new norm. No, listen, I am well aware protesting happens all of the time, but it seems like everyone is getting involved these days.

Naming a Pet Can Be Tricky, But The Capital Region is Creative! [PHOTOS]

I was missing my "kids," as I call them, the other day at work. I have three fur-babies; Lyric is a cat, he's my oldest, Penny is my shorkie dog and Graham is my little boy bunny. They are my world and I love them.

Like anyone else, there are special stories behind each name

My Family Christmas Tradition Typically Involves a Surprise

My family Christmas tradition usually involves a surprise.

See, my Nana is 84-years old and she lives on her own. She's able to get herself around and do most of the normal stuff, just a little slower than she used to. When my cousin and I noticed that she was starting to put less and less out for Christmas, we knew that was a little out of character.
