American Idol

So from the very beginnging, American Idol has been my favorite! I get so excited when it premieres, I even write it in my planner so I don't forget (right along with the Bachelor)! Our whole family watches it and gets really pumped. We'll call one another when we like or dislike a song or when one of our favorites gets sent home. You'd think that as much as I enjoy the show and singing that I would actually be able to sing well, but unfortunately, that's not the case!! I like to pretend though, so I just sing right along, out of tune and all!! Dad and I have this thing now where we say that I ruined my vocal cords and that I could sing well if it wasn't for that...haha!! Anyways, so I have a couple favorites this season! I really like Danny and Kris and Allison! And I LOVED Megan, but she got sent home :( But I am hoping she comes back with a wild card! I really think she would have gotten through had they not created this weird group system where only 3 people get in from each group. The group this past week was really really good!

In 3 more weeks...

In 3 more weeks weeks, Adam and I will be taking a vacation to Hilton Head Island. We are so excited and cannot wait! Bless his heart, Adam needs a vacation! We have many exciting activities planned, more like I have the activities planned. I am such a planner and Adam is very "go with the flow!" We thought about going some place we had never been like Washington D.C., Adam even mentioned Colorado, but we just decided to go some place we love and know really well. We can really relax at HH and not get stressed about directions or what to visit. We have made many memories in HH, and I look forward to making many more there together. I have been going there with his family since we started dated. I had really never vacationed there. I had been there a few times, but my family and I always spent time at Beaufort because my grandmother had a place there, which isn't very far away, but we never really went there much. But I love it! It is not very commercial and there are not any high rises, but there are still things to do and much fun to be had. I especially love the outlets right before you get on the island! We have traditions there now, too, and I can't wait to share them with our children someday. We always eat at this little italian place called Guiseppe's (usually more than once if we are with Dad), we have to eat frozen custard (with colored sprinkles...yumm) and shop at Coligny, eat at The Wreck and listen to the guy sing and play the guitar at Sea Pines. We have always wanted to take our bikes and ride along the island, so hopefully we will do that when we go in a few weeks! I also want to go crabbing (something I always did spending summers in beaufort), visit Daufuskie Island, rent a sail boat, and spend a day in Savannah! I have wanted to go to Savannah and eat at Paula Deen's restuarant for about 2 years now, and I am so excited about it!! Adam's Aunt Florence and Uncle Eddie recently went, and they brought be back a menu! Wasn't that sweet? They are so cute! I can't wait for visit to HH! I know we are going to have a great relaxing fun time!

Our Valentine's

Adam and I had a real sweet Valentine's this year! Friday night we went out to dinner with mom and dad because every where is so crowded on Valentine's. We went to Rhinehart's, a seafood resturant, and we had a really fun time. We were there forever it seemed but we all enjoyed one another's company. I also totally and completely fell in love with a little boy named Beckham. He had blond hair and blue eyes, just the cutest little thing ever! We played pick-a-boo and I wanted to just take him home with me...hee hee! On Saturday, I had to work but Adam had the day off, so when I got up I found a card, a dozen pink roses, and my favorite candy (dove dark chocolate with almonds) on the breakfast bar! I was so excited, and I have to admit that I have the sweetest most thoughtful VALENTINE!! So I also layed his gifts on the breakfast bar so when he woke up, he would find his gifts, too! I got him a Wii!! He called me at work when he found it and was so happy! He played all morning...haha! When I got home from work, I had yet another gift from my sweet Valentine, a 75 minute massage at a Spa...ahhh...I can't wait for that! That night Adam's cousin, Erica, and I cooked for her boyfriend, Phillip, and Adam. We had such a fun time together! The girls cooked while the guys played the Wii, and we wouldn't have wanted it any other way. The boys did offer their services which was sweet but Erica and I enjoyed our girl time! We had a nice romanic dinner together and all played the Wii afterwards. I will have to post pictures later!
