First comment? lol Thats a first for me I think.....Anyways just wanted to say I hope everybody has a good week end. We have about a foot of snow and more on the way so we will probably be indoors most of the time. Yeah, snow in April lol I shouldn't be shocked but I am, it actually broke our gazebo roof two nights ago, the whole thing collapsed into our hot tub, thank heavens nobody was around. But anyways have a great week end ladies!

I am so sorry ya'll have snow, Jacelynn!! We are supposed to have 80 degree weather today and I am thrilled. I love having the windows open, shades up, just listening to the birds as I work (since I work from home). Hopefully I can sit outside for awhile if work is slow and just take it all in. Michigan does not get as much nice weather as most places so we try to make the most of what we get :).

Are any of you following American Idol? I am a huge Kris Allen fan-- I bought his studio single of "Falling Slowly" on iTunes and I have to say it was 20 times better recorded than live (though he is great live as well). At first I didn't think he would go that far but he has done well for himself. I think Adam is going to win, though-- he's not my cup of tea but he can definitely sing (and I caught a clip on youtube of him in Wicked as Fiyero which was impressive). Just wondering who others are rooting for!

Jacelynn,

What part of Canada are you from? How late in the spring does it usually snow? I know there are still parts of the United States that are still getting snow also. Hope you have a great weekend also.

SamanthaNC said...

Its going to be 80 here as well- sorry Jacelynn!

Lizabeth- I love Kris and Danny.... but I think Adam will win as well.

Have any of you seen "Pitch Men" on discovery?

Also just wondering if there are any Deadliest Catch fans here? My husband and I are hooked.

Jacelynn said...

Thanks Liza Beth. I wish I lived somewhere with decent spring weather. lol!

Nina Bell Im from southern Alberta and we have actually had snow in June. Thats not common but a late April snow is. :( I was just hoping we wouldn't get it because it wasn't in the forecast until the day before and it was much worse than expected. Plus to make matters worse we were actually having really nice spring weather! It was shorts and sandals the day before the snow and now its winter coats and boots.

I watch American Idol occasionally but not really following any of it. And Pitch Men looks interesting but I haven't seen it yet. And I haven't seen Deadliest Catch either lol! Am I out of the loop or what?

Saint said...

Ugh! Jacelynn...snow in April! We're supposed to have sun and temps near 80 degrees here in eastern PA. The Gosselin solar panels should get a work out this weekend.

Liza Beth, I just love Adam and Danny on AI. This group has fabulous voices though. Any of them are as good as the previous year's winners.

This is just a cute video of Kate with the kids, there is also a cute one of Kate with the puppies if you just scroll down a bit. :)

Jacelynn said...

lol Saint yup snow....it sucks!! I should be used to it but it seems every year there is more snow for longer.

Eileen said...

Jacelynn, sorry about your gazebo. And sorry you're still having snow! I won't depress you by going into detail about the nice weather I'm enjoying today.

Jacelynn said...

lol, thanks Eileen but honestly its not depressing Im glad somebody is having nice weather. :)

indianprincess said...

I'm not to fond of Kris on American Idol. I wasn't surprised lil Rounds got booted. She really disappointed me. I'm sure someone will give her an offer because she can sing.

I wish I could enjoy nice weather but it doesn't matter what temp it is I'm always cold. It's just one of those things.

This is the second season I haven't watched American idol...It was just annoying.

I can only allow myself to get invested in one reality show competition at at time. This year for the first time I watched The Biggest Loser. Its coming to an end and Im already starting to go through withdraw.

I am disappointed that Project Runway Season 6 is still tied up in court. Does anyone know the latest on this?

nomoredrama said...

Nevermind, just after I posted this I saw a popwatch article from April.

I'm still concerned with the new director of the show and how it is going to look. We'll see.

Theresa said...

On American Idol, I like Adam and Allison. I think both will make it to the finals with Adam winning it.

I'm not too fond of Matt. I really think he's going to be voted off next (and hoped he was voted off last week)LOL. I like the nickname Jimmy Kimmel gave him...Justin Timberfake! Too funny and so true!

Anya said...

Nomo -

I was glad to see "Project Runway" is finally being aired too. I need me some Tim Gunn.

Make it work!

My son went in for surgery yesterday for a g-tube. He wound up having an infection in his esophagus so they stopped everything. Now they are going to have to wait 2 to 3 weeks until the infection is gone. I was frustrated but thankful all at the same time. It was a strange place to be in. But I am glad he did not get sick from a septic infection.

Nina Bell said...

Three Amazing Kids

Welcome,

I hope your son is doing well today and you are enjoying the day together.

Three Amazing Kids said...

thanks! :)

we are all having a great weekend!

Saint said...

Three Amazing Kids,
My best wishes to you, your family, and especially your little one. I hope that he is strong enough soon, and has a successful recovery.

Eileen said...

Three Amazing Kids, I've been reading your blog (I came upon it awhile ago through another blog), and your family is in my prayers.
I'm glad you came here because I wanted to tell you that I think your three amazing kids have an amazing parent!
I was not able to post on your blog.
All the best to you and your family.

Three Amazing Kids said...

Saint,

Thanks! :) We are looking at it as his second chance to heal and grow. We are very optomistic about it.

Eileen,

Thanks so much. It is really appreciated. There are a lot of crazies on the internet, so I chose to prevent trolling by not allowing comments.

Jacelynn said...

All the best to you and your family Three Amazing Kids!

merryway said...

Jacelyn that's a bummer about your gazebo.
Hi Three Amazing Kids. Hope you're doing okay and wishing the best for your son.

I saw the The Soup clip. I can't remember how many times J&K have been on now. I was disappointed. The J&K clip by itself was funnier than Joel's response. They should have worked a little harder on the joke. It was focused on Jon while Kate talked and talked some more about how she was handling the project w/Going Green. I'm wondering if they're going to be more of a regular like The Hills or The Girls Next Door.

Hope everyone's having fun!

Jacelynn said...

While making breakfast I switched the TV on and Jon and Kate's (either first or second) special is on! Its refreshing to see her so nice. She truly is nicer and calmer then, but a lot has changed for them so....... Even the way Kate talks has changed.....

Anyways just wanted to say I am definitely reminded of why I loved the show so much, the babies were so cute!

Eileen said...

I used to enjoy watching the show at first too, Jacelynn, but my interest waned a long, long time ago.

Even though the show holds no interest for me anymore, I still don't get the whole 'hate' thing. Nor do I get the 'fan' interest (I'm not talking about interest in the show, I can see how people would still have an interest in the show, and in following the lives of the family on TV, I just don't get the 'adoration' factor of some fans), but to each his own, everyone is entitled to their feelings of love and hate even though I can't fathom them.

Liza Beth, my grandson just pointed to your avatar and said, "I know who he is! That's Dead Pool! (at least that sounded like what he said!)

Jacelynn said...

I agree Eileen, I still watch occasionally but I don't understand the extremes some people feel for Kate and the family.
