HGotW: David Cook

It's Thursday and HGotW is back! I'm sorry I haven't been around as much as I used to be. However, I do have to say that the pressure if OFF and now I can just post when I feel the urge. I like it this way.

This weeks Hot Guy is awesome! This guy can sing! I mean, he has got a massively fantastic voice! I like to listen to the words of songs when I'm listening to musuc but there are certain singers that just have voices that captivate me. When the song is over I find that I've concentrated so hard on the voice that I missed what the song was about. (A good excuse to go back and listen again.) Today's HGotW falls into that catergory.

I fell in love with him when he was on American Idol (the last real season I watched) and I'm still loving him. I have his CD and I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for another one!

I give you, this weeks HGotW . . .

David Cook

It must be music week on my blog because the girl I've chosen for today is also part of the music industry.

I'm a fan of this girl for a few reasons. I really enjoy her voice and her music. (Even though country is rarely my thing.) I also think (though I don't know her personally) that she might be a better choice of a role model for young girls today than say . . . Miley Cyrus?

It just seems to me that I've never seen this girl do half naked photo shoots or pole dance. So, right there, she already gets points from me. If I had a daughter I would much rather my daugther be a fan of this young lady than of Miley Cyrus. (But, that's just me.)

The young lady I've chosen for today is . . .

Taylor Swift

And she's beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed yourself! Have a wonderful day! Go listen to some David Cook or Taylor Swift.

Casino Chips? Really?

I came across this piece of information and thought I would pass it on.

This may come as a surprise, but there are more Catholic churches in Vegas than Casinos.

Not suprisingly, some worshippers at Sunday services will give Casino chips rather than cash when the basket is passed.

Since they get chips from many different Casinos, the churches have combined to devise a way to collect the offerings.

The different churches send all their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan Monastery for sorting and then the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and cashed in.

This is done by CHIP MONKS!!!!

You didn't even see it coming, did you!?
Have a great day!

Don't Obsess

I just realized that for the past two weeks there has been nothing posted here for Thursday's weekly Hot Guy post.

Check next week. I'll try to do better.

While I'm kind of unhappy with myself for the lack of blogging. I also feel kind of liberated (That's not the right word but I can't think of a different way to put it right now) from the pressure of having to post everyday.

I was feeling OCDish about the daily posts and then when I totally forgot a couple days that OCD feeling went away. I suppose I figured I'd already ruined it so why obsess? I still love my blog and I still write things I'm just not obbsessing about it anymore. This I like.

So, I'm still around. Hope you all have a great day!

My Pink Towel

I have a favorite towel. It's HUGE and hot pink and it's well used but it's soft. I got it from my Mommy a Bunch of years ago well before I was ever married.

There's no sentimental value or anything like that. It's just a very large, soft, comfy towel.

When I take a shower I like to have my towel. Then I wash it and put it back in the closet for next time. I love my pink towel.

I love my husband. Sometimes he drives me nuts, of course, but isn't that normal? But, sometimes there are those little things that just make me smile.

Yesterday J got up and took a shower and later he and the Kiddo went to the movies. While they were gone I decided to take a shower.

I opened the closet to get a towel and there was my pink towel, sort of disheveled on the top of the stack of folded towels.

Do you know why it was disheveled? Because when J took his shower he saw that my pink towel was on top of the stack and he grabbed the one underneath it, causing my towel to end up in a ball on top.

I know it's a silly little thing but the fact that he thought about me when he grabbed his towel puts a smile on my face. He knew that the pink one was my favorite and instead of grabbing the towel on top he left it there for me and grabbed the next one.

Love him!

Six Word Saturday!

It's Saturday! Time for Six Word Saturday! If you would like to play along clicky the little box and Cate will tell you how it's done! Have fun!

Having some blog related memory problems.

While I was away I had a bunch of posts scheduled to publish automatically. Now that I'm back I'm forgetting to blog because I didn't have to for so long. *Sigh* Bad me. I'll try to get back on track.
