Dianna clued me in on this, so I take no credit.  I have to admit, I actually watched American Idol this week for maybe the second time in my life.  After watching this video clip I realized there wasn’t really much of any talent on our American version… if we must search for “idols” then this guy’s story wins my vote.   To see his semi-finalist, winning performance, copy and paste this link:

I thought I’d be all cute-sie and start blogging on my favorite little things in life… aside from the obvious ones, being my hubby and kids, of course!  Not that you necessarily even care, but maybe you’ll even discover a few favorites to add to your own list :).  So I have this thing for Starbucks… and I absolutely love to check out their latest and greatest mug additions.  The designs are always unique and very creative (which would naturally be appealing to me).   Kelly (my hubby) and I actually have our very own Starbucks now that just opened a few weeks ago and went there to hang out just last night.  Meet my newest additions to the collection:starbucks013_v1_web.jpg Not like you need to see them AGAIN!  but I liked this angle too….starbucks004_v1_web.jpgAnd finally, hats off to my grande decaf mocha (and YES, I want the “whipped” on top!).starbucks009_v1_web.jpgWhat’s your favorite “Starbie’s” drink?

We’re still in “vacation” mode around here… so Monopoly was our time killer of choice this afternoon.  When we gave up for bowls of ice cream and blogging, Jonathan (the other goofy one in front) and Mommy were neck and neck.  monopoly01_blog.jpg monopoly02_blog.jpgmonopoly03_blog.jpgmonopoly04_blog.jpgAh, yes…. the dreaded “monopoly”!  My power cards :)…monopoly06_blog.jpg Navigating through the waters of Death row…monopoly05_blog.jpg Pay up buddy!monopoly07_blog.jpgEasy come, easy go!  monopoly08_blog.jpgWish every day was a holiday…
