Adam should be glad he is 2nd, it gives him a lot more options....
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Kris Allen - “Ain’t No Sunshine” - I loved this performance Kris is on Fire. I agree with Simon first round goes to Kris
Adam Lambert - “Change Is Gonna Come” - Adam impressed me with this song. Great song choice Simon Fuller
Kris Allen - “What’s Goin’ On” - I still loved Kris, He sang the song well.
Adam Lambert - “No Boundaries” - I hated this song Adam sounded awful.
Kris Allen - “No Boundaries” - Kris won this round hands-down. Still I am not a fan of this song and think it was terrible that Kara said we probably arranged it a little high for you. I think she was trying to sabbatoge Kris since we all know she Loves Adam. Of course this is my personal opinion.
Can't wait until tonight I hope Kris wins....

Before I even get to the Contestants, who let Paula wear the lavender lipstick that she wears every single week with that red dress.
Kris Allen - “The Way You Look Tonight” - I loved Kris. He is adorable. He is mesmerizing when he sings. I think he will be safe.
Allison Iraheta - “Someone To Watch Over Me” - I really did not like her this week, I was wondering if I heard the same performance as everyone else. It was hard to understand her this week, she did not pronunciate her words, at least not on my TV. LOL
Matt Giraud - “My Funny Valentine” - I thought he was OK, nothing spectacular. He will more than likely be in the bottom 3.
Danny Gokey - “Come Rain or Come Shine” - Awesome... He looked great, sounded amazing, very proud of him.
Adam Lambert - “It’s A New Day” - Well he was not Mr. Buble by any means. But I think he did well. I will admit Adam is extremely dramatic and although his taste is not mine, he is one of the most talented singers in the competition this year.
So I think tonight the bottom 2 will more than likely be Matt and Allison.
My top three still remain as Kris, Danny and Adam. Can't wait until tonight...

This years theme was "The STARS come out". I have loved hearing about all the plans for what seems like many moons, now. LOL The day she mentioned building our on balloon archs, I knew I had to be there.
So on Friday I arrived at the school 9:30ish in the morning, with breakfast in hand. (Aren't I a great big sister). We (Heather and I) and an occasional helper here and there transformed the gym into a STARRY night in Charlotte, in about 6 hours. I never knew how much fun building a star balloon arch for all the little girls and their daddies to walk through, or the 6, 9 ft (at least) tall balloon arches that created the dance floor could be. It was a lot of hard work but so much fun. So enough talking here are pictures of our fun day and the three little princesses I did it for.
Aren't they precious....

Please lift up this sweet Charlotte family in prayer.
Their baby Kayleigh was born in June weighing in at 1lb 1oz.
She is now 10 months old and is a little fighter but she is still in need our prayers now.
Please click on the link above for her story.
Last night with no saves left Lil Rounds was the first one to go.
My daughter was very sad is Lil was her favorite.
Anoop Desai also saw his fate last night.
Also in the bottom 3 was Allison Iraheta.
We will have to wait until next week to see how she does with the Standards.
I thought that David Archuleta's performance of "Touch My Hand" was really cheesy. He has never been my favorite, and last night he did not impress me in the least.

Kris Allen - “She Works Hard For The Money” - "Brilliant" enough said...
Danny Gokey - “September” - I thought he did well. I agree with Simon he needs to work the stage more. He will be safe.
Allison Iraheta - “Hot Stuff” - I did not like it. She is 16 and I would like to see her act it. She is probably safe but not in my top 3 so I would not be heart broken if she was in the bottom 2.
Adam Lambert - “If I Can’t Have You” - I loved seeing I dare say the softer side of Adam. He was great. He will be safe.
Matt Giraud - “Stayin’ Alive” - I did not like the performance and I felt last week that they wasted the save, tonight I still feel that way. He should have gone home last week.
Anoop Desai - “Dim All The Lights” - Started out good, but went down hill. He may be in the bottom 3.
It is a toss up for me in the bottom 3, I think Matt and Lil will more than likely go home.
My top 3 are Kris, Adam and Danny.
The men are on fire this week and all 3 are different.
Can't wait to see what happens tonight.

Here are my thoughts:
Alison Iraheta - “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” - I think she sounded like she was screaming. I didn’t love it.
Anoop Desai - “Everything I Do I Do For You” - I have never really liked Anoop and I have to say he was really good last night.
Adam Lambert - “Born To Be Wild” - It was very rock. I still like Adam and think he will be in the top 3. I was not crazy about the performance but it was Adam all the way.
Matt Giraud - “Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman” - He is in trouble. I will be surprised if he is still in the competition after this performance. It started off OK, but in the middle he lost control and never really got it back. I think he is going home tonight.
Danny Gokey - “Endless Love” - I love Danny I thought he was very heartfelt last night.
Kris Allen - “Falling Slowly” - LOVED IT.
Lil Rounds - “The Rose” - This song takes me back to my childhood days in TX. I love this song. I thought she did well, though it was not her best performance.
All in all I enjoyed this week. I think that Matt is the one going home.

Only in the south can it snow a couple of inches, the roads are 100% clear and our schools close. On a positive note, I made it to work in record time. It is pretty and don't get me wrong, I love SNOW, but if I was a teacher who just lost a teacher workday due to snow or the lack there of it would be slightly aggravating. Personally I would love for it to snow like a foot or 2 or 3, LOL just once in my life here in Charlotte, NC. I know the whole city would shut down but I think it would be great. The kids can make snowman and angels galore.....

This week has been a roller coaster, started out great and went drastically down hill. On the weight loss front, I have worked out 4 times this week. (Yeah me) I forgot to weigh before I left work but I will on Tuesday and will update everyone then. Those who don't know I work for LPL/UVEST, we are a third party broker dealer. So I work with stock brokers all day. It is no secret that right now the market stinks, so it is a barrel of fun. Anyway we are playing a game at work where we all started out this month with a portfolio of $500,000 (Pretend money of course) and whoever has the most money on March 31st will win a day off. Sounds like fun right... well it is, but I have made some risky choices, for example I decided to buy alot (like almost 20,000 shares) of Circuit City stock last week since it was at .47 and still going up. Well today I have lost on that particular position around $90,000 since they announced they are out of business so it closed at .03, all I can say is thank goodness it is not real money. One of the guys at work (Mike) said that based on my recent decisions that I should do the opposite of what I think I should.
But the worst was yesterday when some of my dear friends at work were laid off. It was so sad. I wanted to cry all day. I would have taken a pay cut if it meant my friends could have kept their jobs. I pray that everyone across the country who is unemployed find employment, I also pray that they know that if they trust God he will supply all your needs.
