A few things...

Since I have this small soap box to stand on, I thought I would share a few of my observations/thoughts/opinions from the last few days.

1.  I wish I had watched Grey's Anatomy on mute this week.  A musical episode?  Really????  Who thought that was a good idea?  The episode would have been really good if it weren't for all of the singing.  They had nice voices, but it was just so silly.  If you didn't see it and feel like torturing yourself, have a look.

2.  American Idol got it right this week.  I was a little worried that this season was going to be a bust when Casey got voted off...thank goodness the judges saved him...but America redeemed themselves.  Although I liked Thia, she was turning into a one trick pony and really didn't have a shot at winning the whole thing; there's just too many good ones this year.  I could not be happier that Naima is gone though.  I never cared for her voice and then she started dancing....really!??!!  The reggae this past week was really the end for if I wasn't already over her.  Good work America.  Go to 1:35 to see the dance heard round the world:

3.  I'm a pretty amazing fisherwoman.  Steve, his friend Gary, and I went to Gary's property in Galveston Friday night and I slayed them!  We caught 18 speckled trout and 1 flounder.  I caught at least 8 of the trout and the flounder.  Because I was making the guys look so bad, I sat and read a book for a little bit so they could catch up...can you imagine how bad it would have been if I hadn't taken my little break?  We went back to Gary's house and he and his wife threw a little fish fry for us.  Delish!  Here's our catch:

Please excuse their blurriness.  Reason number 3,485 I need an iPhone.

4.  I'm really excited for my parents to come to town on Thursday!  I haven't seen them since my wedding and I really miss them.  They were supposed to come a month ago, but my dad had some complications from his latest surgery, so it had to be postponed.  We are going to the ranch because, although my dad has never been there, he is a tad obsessed with it and is already planning to have a house on it when he retires.  Hopefully my dad will be able to kill a hog or something and my mom and I will go sit in the tree house and watch the deer as they come in to the feeders.  We'll see if he still wants to live there when he sees how far it is from civilization. 
 How cute are they?????

5.  Steve's habit of eating sunflower seeds is officially my least favorite of all of his habits.  As we speak, he is sitting next to me cracking the seeds and then spitting them into a coffee cup.  First off, the spitting sound is repulsive.  Second, guess he gets to then clean said coffee mug.  It is terrible.  I think I'm going to pick up a bunch of de-shelled seeds at the store so and throw the rest of this bag away. 
On that note, I'm gonna go make myself busy in a different room....I can't take that sound anymore.
