Yay! I'm so excited about the top four people on American Idol. I had all of them in my Top 4 when they announced them as the Top 13. And I had Adam and Danny picked from the moment I heard them auditioned.

Please take the 5 minutes to watch this video. Our church showed this video today and I think it speaks volumes.
I follow My Charming Kids blog and she wrote this awesome post called "the truth about Easter." Take another 5 minutes to go read her post. It is really good.

We had so much fun at Preston's birthday party. He loved our remote control tractor we gave him, but the guitar was the hit of the party. He was Rockin' and Rollin' and even singing some original songs.

I love taking pictures. And I love my digital point and shoot camera. But I'm about to enter into a whole new world. The world of digital SLRs. (or what I call....real cameras)
My sweet husband is letting me buy a new Canon Rebel. I know absolutely nothing about them except that my sister in law said that it would be a great camera to start out with. So I bought "Digital Photography for Dummies". It's all about using digital SLRs, taking great pictures, editing images, and using Photoshop Elements. I'm super excited to dive into the world of photography. I know I will be never be a professional or anything, but when there are little Links running around the house I want to know how to take good pictures of them. So I better get started now while I have time!!

I've been reading up and studying up a lot lately on couponing. I have lots of friends/co-workers that are really getting into it, and I am determined to be good at it, too. I love finding a good deal on clothes, shoes, purses, etc. So why shouldn't I be able to get a good deal on groceries.

I just recently decorated our mantle. I've been wanting to do this since we moved in, but I was waiting until I could find some good deals. I got the vase, candle, and candle stick at Hobby Lobby all for 50% off. I pulled the stuff in the vase from another vase I have in our house. I didn't use it all. I left just enough in the other vase so that they both looked good. (My mom actually bought the at Hobby Lobby for 90%, and made the vase for me for Christmas.) The books are ones that we already had in our bookcase. I just took the sleeves off of them. And the lanterns are actually outdoor lanterns that my grandma got for me for Christmas from Sam's. We were really excited to hang them outside on our arbor, but I just thought they looked too cute on my mantle.

Last night I was complaining to him about the recent pounds that have been creeping up on me these days. Basically I was throwing a pity party for myself, and nothing he said was going to make me feel better. He gets so annoyed when I do this.
I woke up this morning and thought it was time to get on the scale and see if I really did have a reason to be throwing a pity party. I hadn't weighed in about 2 weeks, so I was dreading getting on the scale this morning, for fear it would tell me the ugly truth.
So I closed my eyes.
Stood there for a second.
Waited for the dreaded number.
So I looked at the last two numbers.
And looked at them again.
I really didn't think I had gained that much weight.
I didn't have my contacts in, so I had to squat down to see if that number was correct.
And it was. Matt had changed the scale to kilograms.
So then I didn't feel so bad, because I didn't really know what that number meant. All I knew was that was way smaller than what I was used to seeing. I might keep my scale on kilograms. We'll see.
Or invest in one of these....
