While I 100% realize that most of my blog readers will have no clue who this is, I felt the need to share.
Tonight, mom and I drove down to Panama City to have dinner at Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville. We have been in Watercolor for a few days, getting in some relaxation before I start back to school. Anywho, right as we sat down to dinner I looked over to the table next to us and spotted Caitlin Lynn.
Now, the obvious question is..."Who the heck is that?!?." Being a huge geek, I religiously watched CMT's "Can you duet." It is a show similar to American Idol in that people from across the country audition in front of 3 judges (Naomi Judd being one of them) in hopes of landing a record deal. However, this shows objective was to find a duet, versus a solo artist. Caitlin actually auditioned with a friend, but the judges only allowed her to continue on in the competition. They then paired her up with a guy named Will Snyder (who happens to be from London, Ky). The match ended up being a perfect one and they went on to win the show.
I increased my level on the geek scale when I went over and introduced myself and let her know how happy I was that they won the competition. She was so sweet and just a genuinely nice person. She even walked over to meet mom, who was the one who convinced me to go over.
She really does have an incredible voice. I included this video for your viewing pleasure :)
While I am not going to discuss my personal political opinions on my blog, I did want to post about this...
I sat down tonight and watched the political forum with Obama and McCain. If you have not chosen a candidate, or even if you have, I would STRONGLY advise taking the time to watch the forum. It was hosted by Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California. Warren started with Obama and asked him a set of questions, then brought out McCain and asked him the exact same questions (McCain was in a green room and could not hear any on the questions or Obama's responses). I loved the format. The topics ranged from taxes to abortion. No topic was off limits. Both candidates had a very different approach to the questions, I thought it was so interesting!
Here is an article about it, along with some video. I am sure they will be re-airing it, check your local times and tune in. You have 79 days to make an informed decision about who you want to vote for. It's too important not to care. Be educated!
Maria's birthday is August 1st and mine is August 7th. We started a new tradition last year to celebrate together! This years celebration worked out to be on August 9th. We all had dinner at Atomic Cafe and then went outside to the patio to dance to a local band. I swiped these pictures from Markey's facebook, but I'm sure she wouldn't mind if I shared them on here :)
