Scotty McCreery Wins American Idol!!

Our hometown hero, Scotty McCreery wins Season 10 of American Idol! Wahooo! I’m not even a huge fan of country music, BUT… this kid is/was very talented & very deserving! Congrats, Scotty!

Here's a video of his "hometown visit" a couple of weeks ago - Garner is just a stones throw from Raleigh and I must say, we are all so proud of him!

Scotty performing with Tim McGraw was genius. As I said, I'm not a big country fan, but this was already a beautiful song and now I love it even more.

 What do you think? Do you think the right contestant won?

What did you think of the finale? *I LOVED it!*

Completely Random...

Sometimes you just have nothing to say. You may think you do, but you don't. It's at the tip of your tongue.. but nothing. Do you just not know how to say it? Do you not know how it will perceived?

So much stress.. so much to consider. Why? Why the stress? Why the undue strain of turmoil? Is it necessary? It it absolutely necessary?

Could it have been different? Could it have been clearer? Why? Do you ever stop to think of why? Do you ever wonder what could be? Do you? Is it too much to bear? Is it more than you wanted? I don't know.

I think there are, at times, moments of grandeur. I think. Then again...

Is this for real? Is this the way. Do you see?

Did you think this was that calling? Did you think this was a tell?


I do.

Could it?

Be... completely random...

Rob Pattinson's "Songs From A Room" Performance {AUDIO & VIDEO}

I have melted and my knees are wobbly. I'm affectionately enchanted, and there's only one reason for this... it's Rob Pattinson's earthy, intoxicating voice in his "Songs From A Room" performance from last summer. Oh my.

I'm not sure what this song is called but I sure want to find out!

And to add to the euphoria, here is a snippet (video) of his actual performance...

Here is an excerpt from the Examiner article written about this very rare, very unaffected performance:

An impromptu performance by Robert Pattinson at a past London 'Songs From a Room' secret living room gig. One of the many 'Sofarsounds' events that showcase new artists and give musicians a chance to be heard in an intimate setting. Sofarsounds have recently launched their 'Kickstarter' donations appeal to give fans a unique way of supporting new artists and become part of their international movement. You can donate to the movement here with a great reward scheme! Be sure to check out some of the other artists on here and our page!

You may remember Rob singing on the Twilight soundtrack? 'Let Me Sign' & 'Never Think' I long for the day that he sings more and more. He's extremely gifted. (and not just in the looks department!)

Have you heard 'Let Me Sign' & 'Never Think'? Check them out below and then let me know that you've fallen in love!

LivingSocial's Water For Elephants Premiere!

You may remember that I posted about my excitement to attend a special advanced screening of 'Water For Elephants' a few weeks ago? If not, READ ABOUT IT HERE! Up to speed?

I know, I know... it was 3 weeks ago. I get it. Sorry! I've been busy! I couldn't completely neglect my post about it though, and thus the reason I'm here right now. :)

I went with some ladies from work and we all had a blast... well, once we got through the long lines! They had the lines separated by your last name.

Once we cleared the line, with our drink tickets in hand... I'll give you one guess where I went first? Yup. You guessed it... the BAR!

Don't I look excited?! LOL!
OK... let me be serious. For once. 

After seeing how crazy the line was, there was no way I'd venture my way through again, so I did the only thing I could think of. I ordered BOTH of allotted two drinks at once. Yes, I'm a lush... with wine anyway. ESPECIALLY when it's free! :)

Two fisting it...because that's how I roll!
The theater was packed. There were people everywhere. People excited to see Rob & Reese onscreen. People who wanted to see Rob play a role that seemed perfect for him. Maybe I'm talking about how I felt? Of course I am! I thought the movie was wonderful! Absolutely beautiful. It should be noted that I have not read the book so I had nothing to compare it to. So, judging it, or I should say, reviewing it as I did was strictly based on how I thought it was a movie. It was brilliant. The chemistry between Reese Witherspoon & Rob Pattinson was electric. Majestic. I honestly didn't really know the storyline beforehand... or the plot. At all. I was what you could call a 'Water For Elephants' virgin. I was taken aback. A couple of times. And yes, I clapped during a very integral scene between August, Marlena, & Jacob... and most importantly, Rosie.

If you have not yet seen Water For Elephants yet, do yourself, and your heart, a favor and see it. Maybe see it twice. It's that good.

We fit in one shot!
Thanks to the ladies from the office in sharing this experience with me. Not that any of you really needed convincing! :) Rob kinda speaks for himself, right? lol!

I had a great time and hope to do it again sometime!
