Getting sucked into American Idol

Yeah, I'm procrastinating from getting a jump on my Monday morning...I know, I know. 

OK, I normally really don't watch American Idol.  I admit, I have been known to veg out with television after some long days: House, Amazing Race, Biggest Loser.  I can get sucked in.  But American Idol, while a favorite with my girls, is something that I find almost painful to watch, at least in the beginning of the season when they are doing first cuts.  It's hard for me to watch the really really bad performances; I feel SO bad for the contestant as they are performing and then as they stand there being shredded by the judges.  It's almost a physical "ow" watching.  So I don't.

But my Chris tipped me off about this girl.  Said I would be interested in her and she was good and I would want to see how she did.  He was right.  See for yourself.  I love this and will root for her; not only a family I can get behind, but her head and heart are in the right place and she has a great voice.  And she picked a great song.  I hope she goes far.

She is one of our favorites too. We watch it every year as a family. This year Bella is watching part (until her bedtime).

Did you watch Oprah this afternoon? Although not normally a show viewer, I'm so happy I watched today. There was an INCREDIBLE story about nuns- it made me happy and joyful and glad and intensified my desire to get to Church this coming Sunday....

Courtney no. I wanted to as I saw on a blog that she was featuring the sisters. I'm glad it was good! Those sisters are so full of joy I always find them uplifting and compelling!

YAY!!!!!!!!!! We know that Curtis family! They are from our little town and they used to go to our church! They are as precious in real life.
Many blessings, Kristy
