American Idol - Season 7

Is it just me, or is anyone else a little dissapointed in AI this year so far? I guess I don't usually watch until the top 12, so maybe once everyone has been on the stage a few times, they will be better. But my aerobics instructor told us this morning that she was watching an interview with Simon Cowell, and he said that all but about 5 of them this year are "rubbish".

Regardless, here are my top 2 favorite guys and girls, and the 4 that I think should go home today.

Favorite Guys

David Archuleta

Of course I have to go with the home town boy. Not only that, but he blew everyone else away this week. And I think he definitely has a chance to go all the way. Did you hear the audience when he was up??

David Hernandez

This is just based on Tuesday's show. I really liked Michael Johns in the preliminaries, but I haven't loved him the last 2 weeks. But I thought David did a really good job on Tuesday, and he seems like he is taking the criticism and actually trying to be better.

Guys That Need To Go

Jason Yeager

Does anyone else find this guy really annoying and arrogant? I don't even think he sings well at all.

Luke Menard

Ehh. I'll fast forward through him. I don't hate him, but I don't think he's very great, either.

Favorite Girls

Brooke White

I think she was the best girl last night. I thought the song really fit her, and she did a great job. I was worried, because I didn't think she did that great last week.

Carly Smithson

I've liked Carly since the beginning, although I really don't think she has done really well the last two weeks. I hope she gets it together!

Girls That Need To Go

Kady Malloy

I really like Kady, I really do. But she has not done so well the last 2 weeks, and I think she will be a goner tonight.

Amanda Overmyer

Maybe it's because it's just not my type of music, but I don't really feel her. I think she sings ok, but everything kind of sounds the same to me.

So who are your favorites, and who do you think will be leaving?

Not So Boring

So, on Wednesday mornings, I go to a step class at the gym. This morning, in the middle of class, I fell. Yep, right on my butt. I wasn't being klutzy or anything (which is usually the case), but my ankle gave out at an inopportune time. Besides being a little embarrassing, (I was in the front row), my butt really hurts where I landed.

I guess my life is not so boring after all...

Boring Life?

I was talking to a sister the other day about blogging. I was saying that I don't really keep this blog up, mainly because I really don't have a whole lot going on in my life. We don't have any kids yet, so no cute kid pictures or kid stories to tell. My job is not interesting - you certainly don't want to hear about it on here! I could tell about my day, but that would be the same thing every day - wake up, go to the gym, go to work, come home, make dinner, do some work, watch some tv, go to bed. Not exactly exciting.

So since I don't think anyone really reads this anyway, I might just start posting about the random thoughts I have and the random things that go through my head. This might be just as boring, or maybe just embarrassing!

Max's Second Birthday

It seems like just yesterday that I was posting about Max's first birthday. Granted, it's not too many posts back - because I am so bad about keeping up on this blog!

We didn't do anything special for Max's birthday, but I did make him some pup-cakes. He gobbled it down and wanted more!! The recipe can be found on my food blog.

We sang "Happy Birthday" to him, and he couldn't help but sing along. I sure do love this pup!! I'm a little embarrassed to put this on because my singing voice is not the best, but Max steals the show anyway!

I took the video on my camera, so at the end it has me trying to snap some pictures as well - if you are wondering why it is clicking and freezing!
