Two of my favorite shows, Dancing with the Stars and American Idol had their season finales!! What an exciting week! And bless Adam's heart, he endured both nights of both shows with me. Tuesday night was 3 full hours of Dancing with the Stars. The 3 hours were even a little much for me. They dragged it out too long, really, and by the 2nd hour Adam said "Amber, why do they have to drag it out so long? It's not like its the Super Bowl or anything!" And I said, "Adam, it is the Super Bowl for girls!!" And he laughed and said, "ok, I'll watch the 'Super Bowl for girls' with you!" :) It was cute!! But really, girls like that stuff and get into it just as much as guys enjoy sports! I was really shocked that Shawn Johnson won! I really wanted Melissa to win, but though it would be Gilles. But I am glad that Shawn won! She did really well!! And then last night...Amercican Idol!!! American Idol was awesome! To me, it was the best finale ever! It was like a concert! And it ended the way possible with Kris as the new American Idol!!! I was so excited!!! He is just a cutie and good guy, and he is very well-rounded!! Adam Lambert was not my favorite from the beginning. He was just a little too over the top and already a seasoned performer (not what Idol is about). I'm sorry, I'm just not crazy about guys that wear black eyeliner and glitter! But regardless, they both will have a career. Gossip Girl also had it's season finale this week! Megan has gotten me hooked on Gossip Girl! So now that the season ened, I can catch up on the season 1 and 2...thanks Megan :)

Our battle wounds...
Our battle wounds...
Every Wednesday night is "family night" at Memere and Pepere Levesque's house. The whole family comes together for supper, and it is just a nice time to enjoy one another's company and talk about what is going on in our life at the moment. Lately, we have been playing kickball after supper. Usually, I am the only girl, but last night Megan (Nicholas' girlfriend) didn't have to work so she played too! Us girls dressed out and everything! We were really pumped...at first...then the injuries came! Megan got hit in the leg and had a bulging vein in her leg and several scratches, and I had got hit in the head by the ball, tripped to the ground over Nicholas leaving cuts and scrapes and a huge knot on my knee. So needless to say, us girls have called it quits for a while! But my team did win, which consisted on Adam, Uncle Mac, Pep, and myself! We did play well, despite all the injuries! And Pep is known for getting hurt, but thank goodness, he hasn't :) What can I say, there is never a dull moment on Wednesday night! It is something to always look forward to!

It feels like it is summer already! I'm wondering what the weather is going to be like in July or August if it is already 90 degrees!! I've concluded that we really don't have a Spring in the south. It just jumps from 60 degrees to 90 degrees in a weeks time...what the heck?!! But I have to say I kind of love it though! The weather really makes me what to go to the beach! There is just something about the beach in the summer, to me, there is nothing like it! I can't go often enough or stay long enough! Hopefully, Adam and I will a day off together soon and we can sneak up to HHI for atleast the day! How nice would that be?!!

Adam proposed! And it was the sweetest proposal ever! I will remember that day the rest of my life! I was taking a Maymester class and had met Adam for lunch earlier that day. He said he had a surprise for me but would bring it when he came over for dinner that night. I made chicken parmesan for him, and we had a nice dinner together. After eating I remembered my suprise (ofcourse I did, I LOVE surprises)! I said "can I have my surprise now?" He said it was in his truck so we would have to go outside to get it. As we walked outside, I said completely jokingly, "are you going to ask me to marry you?" When we got outside he sat me on a bench and told me to close my eyes. He placed a big green scrapbook in my lap. We was knelt down beside me as I flipped through the pages, it was story of our relationship. I did not expect a proposal at all and had no idea what was on that last page, and almost didn't even flip to it because it was on the backside, but when I did, it sai "Will you marry me?" in really big crayon colored letters! When I turned to him, he had the box sitting on his knee, and said "will you be my wife?" I ofcourse said yes!!! Awww...I love my husband!
