So...WAY TO GO DANNY! All I can say is WOW he really nailed it! But, hey, I really wouldn't have expected less since I have been a fan since the beginning! Brent Keith really surprised me! We haven't seen him really in any of the prior shows this season but I thought he did really good. Unlike the judges, I am a country fan so I liked his song choice and he was right "Country fans won't forget it!" Also unlike the judges, I thought that Casey Carlson's preformance was cute. She really showed her personality and I thought she did well. I am a big Ann Marie fan but she could have done better last night. I agreed with the judges, for once, when they said she just didn't show off her voice enough! But of course, I still voted for her because I know she can do better! Michael really showed off his personality and I just continue to love how down to earth he is! I thought he did awesome! So those were my favorites! After the show I ran hot bath water and took a nice bubble bath while I voted for an hour!
Maybe you are wondering what I might say about my least favorite contestant...Tatiana. Well, she was much less annoying last night as she was very subdued and I unlike the judges liked that much better but I still don't like her! She was all over the place on her song and as far as I am concerned she just isn't good! If she makes it through I will know the show is rigged and I will cry!
As you can see it was just a really good Valentine's! I really learned this year that Valentine's isn't just about romantic love but celebrating every kind of love that we have in our lives! Experiencing this Valentines Day with Audrey opened my eyes to that, so what I used to think was just a lovers holiday has turned into a holiday to share my love with all those that are special to me! Don't get me wrong...the romantic part was wonderful...now I just have more reasons to celebrate!

It started as a regular Wednesday night for me...snuggled up on the love sac pretending that i'm the judge on American Idol, but it ended with me wanting to shake the judges! What were they thinking?! I seriously can't believe that they would put Tatiana through! It makes me so mad! She can't sing and she is the most annoying person ever! And what about Jamar! He is amazing and they sent him home! I thought that this competition was supposed to be about talent!
Oh well, I guess since I can't change it I will just keep cheering for my favorites that are still there...and sending in lots of votes next week! Go Danny, Ann Marie, Michael, and Lil! If any of you vote for Tatiana I will really have to hurt you, she better be the first one voted off!

The dancing water at the Belagio is one of my favorites so we stopped and watched a couple shows there.
All the lights looking out over the Strip is pretty amazing!
At the Silverton there is an amazing salt water fish tank with sting rays and all kinds of huge fish!
We got some free slot play credits to the Riviera so we went and tried our luck but came up with nothin'! I really don't see how people get addicted to playing slots, it really wasn't that entertaining!
I know...wierd that I put the pic of the temple right after the gambling pic but that's just how it happened! While we were there we went and saw the Las Vegas Temple, it was beautiful and a nice break from the rest of Vegas. We did some sealings and the Temple was absolutely georgous inside.
The Freemont Street Experience was amazing! There is a canopy over the street that they show a laser light show on every hour and it was incredible. It was like visiting Vegas the way that it used to be! They had some really fun street vendors and lots of free entertainment!
While we were on Freemont Street we visited another amazing aquarium with sharks in it at the Golden Nugget. It had a waterslide that took you right down through the middle of the aquarium that was so cool!
We also spent some time shopping of course...at the outlets for me and Bass Pro for Drew! We ate at lots of great buffets, relaxed by the pool, and in the evenings enjoyed the hot tub. It was beautiful weather...in the 70's the whole time! All in all it was just a really nice getaway but there was nothing better then getting home to our little darling and having her be so excited to see us!

We went Ice Skating the other week for FHE and Lil' Audrey is a pro! She had a blast laughing and chatting the whole time!
Fun for the whole family!
