I have to tell you, I am so glad to be back in East Texas! My family tree runs all through it, from Gilmer to Jacksonville to Troup.  I know the difference between a Jacksonville "mater," a Noonday onion and a Gilmer yam! I also eat, breathe, and sleep pop culture and the “at work” lifestyle. Outside of radio, I’m a busy working mom -- proud of my two little ones, ages 10 and 4. They keep me grounded. Time management -- what’s that? I’m just as guilty as the next working mom and I try to get it all done in a day! Calm, cool, and together? That's NOT ME! Bad hair days, lollipop stuck to my bottom, plastic Spider-Man in my purse … THAT’S more like it. I’m also active in Girl Scouting where I lead a troop. I'm also an avid runner, a Sunday School teacher and a Crock Pot aficionado (let's swap recipes). Thanks for having me back and I look forward to hearing from you!

In defense of the scaredy cats, that's a pretty impressive movie-quality dinosaur suit they are being confronted with.

Read on to hear the high-pitched squeals of childhood.

You can watch all 7 of them after the jump.

Kirstie Alley’s Shoe Falls Off on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ [VIDEO]

Poor Kirstie Alley. Just one week after she fell on the 'Dancing With the Stars' ballroom floor, the Emmy-winning actress suffered another unfortunate mishap.

In this case, it was her shoe that fell (off). Midway through her routine last night, a noticeably embarrassed Alley remained seated on the floor for a few moments while she put herself back together again.

Luckily, the performance hiccup didn't deter her too much. As was the case last week, Alley got right back on her feet and finished her performance with grace and style -- not to mention a solid score of 22.
