I was so happy to see Sugarland win at the CMA's last night!!! YEAH!! Is Jennifer pregnant? I've heard rumors! Maybe it happened while we were all in Punta Cana!! HA HA

I also was really happy to see Sara Evans finally win Female Vocalist of the Year. She is one of my favorites and has deserved this award for a very long time!!

Weekend PAR-TAY!!!
Well this Saturday is our official kick-off to summer party. I will post some pictures next week. I have been busy this week with getting the house and yard ready to go. Looks like we have about 30 people coming on Saturday, so it should be a great time. Weather is supposed to be georgous!!

Tonight my neighbor Kathy and I are going to plant our flowers together. I hope they come out nice! I went to the nursery yesterday and got lots of pretty flowers and pots to plant them in. I only spent $100 and that includes 4 pots and 2 hanging pots that I plan to re-use each year. I think I might go get one more hanging pot for the third hook in the back, but we'll see!!!

Casey is officially moved into her apartment here in Madison. She started her new job yesterday at CUNA. She said it involved mostly meetings, but hopefully today she will get to see a bit more of the facility! Sounds like the place is huge!!

I don't have too much else exciting to write about. The Country Music Awards are on tonight, so I hope I can be done planting before those start. Then tomorrow I have to watch the finale of American Idol. I like both Taylor and Catherine, so it really doesn't matter to me which one wins! They are both great.

Okay...I should get to work. Will write more next week after the long weekend.

Well I have not blogged in a while, no excuses other than it's just been busy around here. The last blog I did was about Lisa's birthday. We went out that Friday night and had a fabulous evening!! Her husband had a whole spa day planned for her as a surprise and he pulled it off! It was awesome. Then we all met for dinner and drinks. Had a great time.

Let's see...last weekend we took 1/2 day off thursday and all day off friday and had what is known as our 'concert weekend'!! Me, Kacey (my sis in law) and Beth (a friend from work) drove down to Casey's (my sister) place and picked up her and her friend Amy and we headed down to Moline, IL to see Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley and Sugarland. We had an awesome time. Then we spent the night at a hotel in Moline--Kacey got shot at, and then we came home Friday morning extremely hung over!! It was a LONG DRIVE!!

Here we are in Moline after the show:

Then Friday night the five of us, along with Kelly Doyle, drove down to Chicago to see Keith Anderson at Joe's Bar.

Here we are at Joe's Bar:

Now...for those of you who have never seen Keith Anderson--here he is---

Now you can see why we went to go see him...HOLY SMOKES HE'S HOT!!! It was a great show. We also got to see Rodney Atkins who is an up and comer and he isn't so bad looking himself. Well anyways, after the show we drove back to Madison and got home at 4am!!! I am way too old to do that. It's now a week later and I am still recovering!!!
