Time For Some Tunes!

Phillip Phillips "Gone, Gone, Gone"



I have 3 favorite American Idols;  Kelly Clarkson, David Cook and Phillip Phillips.  (I don't know why David Cook didn't catch on after his win.  He really tried on the touring circuit but it just didn't click.  His cover of Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby" is fantastic!)  Do you still stick around for American Idol?  Or, have you left and moved toward The Voice?  


Time For A Cocktail!

Our bartenders tonight are Carri Brown and Jessica Torres, famously known as the creators of the terrific blog "One Martini At A Time".  The stars shined brightly when these two connected.  Their enthusiasm for a well crafted cocktail is obvious when see their delicious recipes and beautiful photos.  (I happen to think a well-lit martini is quite lovely.)  Enjoy!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic.

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
