Idol and Other NEWs

Did you know that the word, NEWS, comes from the acronym for North, East, West, and South?  I learned that from a bathroom book... ha!  

Well, I've got some Idol news first for ya and this time, it has nothing to do with the contestants.  THIS time, I will be on stage with Jordin Sparks singing background vocals on her new single "Battlefield"... such a good song!  While I am continuing to set my record up just right, I will be joining Jordin along with other artists TBA =)  on the road for a little bit.  It will be a bit of a new adventure and a different role for me to play, but I am excited about a change of pace and am open to what God wants to do with me in the midst of it.  In the meantime, I will be continuing to write, record, and really connect with you all and keep you in the mix of things.  It has been a very trying time for me personally, just with having this project be delayed, and more delayed, and more delayed, but I believe that it will release when it's ready to be released and all I can do is be prepared.  SO, I hope that I can see some of your smiling faces on the road and don't forget to watch Idol on Wednesday night (and Tues, of course).... it's gonna be a blast!

Spring Wardrobe Makeover!

Hey guys!  I wanted to let you all in on a little secret of mine.  I recently wiped out my closet and replaced it with a fresh looking collection of fun and different ideas and options.  Everything I got rid of was either donated or consigned to go toward my new look and I am loving the change.  Change is good =).  I am not exactly the most creative when it comes to fashion, some might say I'm a little plain, but my stylist, Annie, helped me to make some of my old accessories new and fun and helped me find new little gems that add so much to my usual jeans/t-shirt look.  We spent a lot of time at cool second hand stores and boutiques where we found stuff that no one else has.  Not only was it a blast but it made me realize how much unnecessary clutter I've lived in for so long. 

Anyways, you're probably wondering why I am telling you all this... Well, it just so happens that she is making her services available to YOU!  Feel free to email her for all of the details and ideas and any questions.  I promise you will be so happy you did it!

Hey guys!  Sorry I dipped out for a second, it has been quite of time of decision-making and forward moving and I had to sort of turn down the volume of the world to hear the truth.  Have you ever felt like that?  It's good for ya, I highly recommend it!  Thanks again for your patience.

On another note, I have apparently underestimated the powerful storm that is the American Idol rumor mill!  Ha... I don't know if anyone followed it, but it was pretty entertaining to see how far a few words can travel.  All that to say, I'll be doing my best to stay out of that, but the funny thing is that now I go on one of those blog sites to keep up with Idol.  Oh this internet is a wonderful thing.  

So, I have nothing juicy for you this time, but I do want to pass on to you one of my favorite records right now.  I know I'm a little late on the train, but I can't stop listening to Adele.  You must check it out!  Love you guys...
