Win 2 Tickets to See Kellie Pickler at The Plaza Live

We’re not necessarily huge fans of Kelly Pickler, per say, but she’s done pretty well for herself since her days on American Idol, plus The Plaza LIVE is a fantastic venue to see any artist you like perform in. (We also hear Kelly’s a pretty decent person and that’s always a big plus in our book!). So…if you’re a fan, head over to The Plaza Live’s Facebook Page for a chance to win two (2) free tickets to watch Kelly perform this coming Friday.

Here’s more info (via The Plaza’s FB Page):

Similar to some other races we’ve seen pop-up in the past few years, but each one definitely has its own personality, and this one is no exception.

“Color Me Rad is a 5K that fires off in a blaze of color bombs, color cannons, color mortars, and multi-toned courses that guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your boss will finally remember your name, the hair on your head will grow back and the hair on your back will fall out, and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning.”

And these guys ain’t messin’ around. Check out all of the cities throughout the country where the Color Me Rad event is being hosted:

Central Florida Life on Instagram

More of Central Florida seen through the Instagram lens. Enjoy (and if you know where any of these places are, chime in)!



Central Florida Life on Instagram

Central Florida has many great “photo opps.” Sometimes ya gotta look for them, often they find you (you just have to be ready). And when we are ready we try to capture them on Instagram. While some of these great photos make their way into our posts, they mostly don’t warrant a full blog post, so we Instashare them.

For these, we thought it’d be fun to start a little series called “Central Florida Life on Instagram,” where from time-to-time we’ll feature various photos caught over a week or two. Here’s the first…we hope you enjoy!


Know where any of this were snapped? We’d love to hear it – let’s make this interactive. And if you’re on Instagram yourself and aren’t yet following us, and would like to, feel free at (handle @PulseofCFL on the App).
