Flip Flop Saturday

It's that time of year again. Old Navy will be having another one day wonder doorbuster sale on solid colored flip flops for only $1.00 while they last. This Saturday 5/22 be there when the door's open or don't go at all, unless you're lucky. At the Old Navy near me, they be gone with the snap of a finger, as if they were free. I would be more interested in going if it was a weekday sale, but a Saturday I'll have to pass. Tried before and the racks were completely empty and I went like 30 minutes after opening. I like Old Navy flip flops. In fact they were the first flip flops I've ever worn in comfort. Happy shopping if you can grab them. I know there is a limit and I believe that is five.

Congratulations Lee DeWyze

I really think he will be the next American Idol winner. After watching the three finalists tonight I think he is the best. I didn't have a favorite this season.. I didn't vote this season.. I loved Big Myke when he sang Maxwell, then my ear was taking a liking to Crystal Bowersox for awhile. Nothing much more to say. If next week is anything like this weeks, Lee DeWyze will be the winner. That's my prediction! :)

Ready for another vacation

Vacations can be really nice and we always take at least one every year. It doesn't matter if it's near or far from home, just being away from home is such enjoyment. Not that I hate home, but it just feels so good to get away. Anything from a short weekend getaway to so far our longest has been a week. I may get homesick for anything longer than two weeks, but we will give that a try one day hopefully.

We enjoyed our first cruise so much and I just can't wait to take another one. Just so much on the daily schedule to see and do, fun filled day's. It gives me something to look forward to throughout the year. Taking classes full-time is really starting to become strainious, especially with majority of my classes being online. Not to mention juggling family life. I have so many day's of running around, doctor appointments, play day's, team sports, and threapy with my oldest son. My family has truly been such a motivation for me. My husband is very supportive and I appreciate everything that he does from cooking meals, to getting the boys up for school in the morning all while getting ready for his busy work day. I spend many late nights up doing homework and he just lets me sleep late most of the mornings. My middle son really made my day one day when he told me how proud he was of me for going back to college. I had to hold back my tears because he truly touched me. We all spend time together at the kitchen table working on our homework together some days, then we end up pulling out monopoly or the uno cards!!! So why am I so ready to escape on a vacation?? I don't know.

Maybe it's the housekeeping service. Having someone clean your hotel suite or room everyday or maybe not having to cook breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Could it be all the keeping busy with fun activities all day long then exhaustion by night, just to get up and do it all over again?? Lol!!

We still haven't stayed at an all inclusive resort before, but I hope to one day soon. They would surely have to have some type of camp program for the children, because we have never gone on a vacation without the boys before. This may change soon hopefully if this complimentary cruise with airfare that we received from an entry goes through. It's only for a weekend, so we are going to try for it now and hopefully get a babysitter when the time comes. I'm just so ready to pull out the luggage, gas up the car, and just drive down the highway to somewhere sunny with warm beaches and great food!! So many places that still I want to visit. I'm so ready!!

American Idol is going down

American Idol has been my favorite show to watch on t.v. since it was in season two. I used to hate to miss an episode... Since we've had our DVR I found it to be the best thing since Dove's chocolate bars ;) I miss Idol, no big deal I'll tune in to it later at my discretion, cool!! I know I've been slowly complaining and fussing since like the last three seasons including this one. But, this time it's serious, no small talk jive.

What has gone wrong?? Too many changes maybe?? Paula Abdul gone & replaced by Ellen Degeneres. Not to mention Kara DioGuardi is still new and fresh on the scene. Plus Simon Cowell will be leaving the judging arena. I will miss his brutal honesty.

Season 9 has been a blah.. The four finalists are great singers, but I don't get any enthusiasm from them.. This whole season has been boring and die hard fans like myself are trying to continue tuning in for the sake of it getting better. I think my favorite reality show needs to say goodbye and come up with something new because it is continuing to go downhill. I'm no coach potato and don't watch much t.v but Idol was once upon a time my favorite reality show.

As for tonight, I thought the duets were nice, especially with the guitar team up of Casey and Myke being my favorite of the two. I haven't even called in to vote, nor have I rooted for anyone this season. Come on idol pick it up..
