A few things of little importance that I thought I'd blog about....

This is my first year really getting into American Idol. I, as my cousin Cory, used to pride myself in the fact that I didn't have time or desire to watch it. Sadly, I've watched it pretty religiously this season. It's pretty clear from seeing most of my cousin's blogs, that David Cook is not a favorite. I'll have to disagree! I LOVE this guy. I used to think he was pretty nasty..., something about his hair. But now, I think he's great! Not only does he have a fabulous voice, he's a great performer. David Archuletta has a nice voice, but that's about it. He's really quite the cheesy performer (poor dancing, weird hand movements, etc.). Even though we all know the 17 yr. old will win, David Cook WILL sell more records. Enough said. I know.
I bought this swimsuit last week from Gap.com. 16.99. I got it yesterday in the mail and it really is a very cute swimsuit. I had one very similar to this when I was 2. I wish I had a pic of it because it would be very funny to see the comparison. And, not that I'm trying to look like the model, but come on...close? I tried it on and was pretty irritated with my mid section. So....

....I got out my favorite DVD, and went to work with my Tae-bo. Thank you Thomson fam for introducing me to Billy Blanks. I've done other work outs and nothing compares. I'm so sore today! I still think my mini trampoline is the best for your body (in terms of not hurting it), but tae-bo really works.
I'm pretty embarrassed that I just posted about such trivial things, especially when there's so many other things I could be doing and worrying about. Oh well. Also, on a side note, Geof. passed his Captain upgrade. This is HUGE! We're so excited and feel so blessed since his company stopped upgrading first officers for a time. His class was the last class to upgrade. Geof. has worked so hard to be here and we're very proud of him. What a relief that he's done (at least for a few years)!

Yeah, I've also noticed the Cook-hating trend among cousin blogs, but I think he's really good. Although he does make creepy faces and I'm kind of over the hands-in-prayer-position-bowing-his-head every time he receives a compliment.

Really cute swimsuit, and I would trade bodies with you in a heartbeat and I haven't even had kids... so enough of that!

Finally, congrats to Geof. You guys are awesome and I miss you!

not trivial! I'm impressed with your motivation to exercise, you are my example! You look too freaking good to have three children. are you sure you HAD them and didn't just take them from the hospital?

I like David Cook, Darla. His hair used to freak me out a little, but he fixes it better now. When he sang "the first time" this week, I seriously started crying. It's one of my favorite songs and he was AMAZING! I think both of the Davids are super good, and I'm glad it ended up being those two. PS. I agree with Julie, these things are important.PSS. GO GEOF! I'll tell Craig!
