I'm Really Excited!!

So not very many people know, but just recently I entered a local singing competition called the OKC Star. It's basically for anyone in OK. Totally open auditions and the top 3 overall get a cash prize. I had never heard of it, but a girlfriend of mine, Hilary, told me about it, and basically told me that I WAS going to try out. Well thanks to her, I'm glad I did. After making it through 3 rounds, I just found out tonight that I'm going to be competed in the final round with the top ten singers. Pretty nerve recking, but so exciting!!! When I first went into this, I tried not to get my hopes up too much. Not because I don't think I can sing, but because I've done stuff sort of like this in the past, and have never really done too well. But this has been great so far! I'm so glad because even though it's taken me a while, and even though I still get nervous, I feel like time has helped me develop into a better singer/performer. I've come a long way, and definitely still have a long way to go, but if you think of me, say a little prayer because I want to do my best.... and hopefully impress the judges too, and i'm going to need all the prayers I can get ;)

Catching up!!....part 2 =)

Okay, so it's definitely been a while since my last post. All I can say is.... so I'm not so good at this sometimes! lol. A lot has been going on over here, that's for sure! Work is great, Jace is growing like a bean sprout, weather is chilly (finally), been doing a lot of singing lately (love it!), and I have really been enjoying life. Life is good =)
I saw a video Chris had posted on Facebook of Jace, and it made me think of how many of my friends get to read my blog, but don't get to see us. Then I thought, I need to do better at putting up videos and pictures. One of these days, we're going to run into old friends and Jace will be all grown up! So sorry to all my friends (especially stacy :) who are waiting on pictures, and I have not been keeping them coming! I figured I could post a few recent ones of my cutie pie and that can hopefully catch us somewhat up to speed! So here they are:

This is Jace and daddy relaxing and watching ESPN - daddy's favorite =)

Jace LOVES his bath!

This is Jace's favorite chair; his elmo chair =)

....and this.... well I'm not sure what this is. I think it's, "mommy, I'm done!"

kinda nervous....

it's here. tomorrow i'm getting all four of my wisdom teeth removed, and i have to say, not only am i not looking forward to the soreness afterward, or the lack of yummy food i'll be able to eat, but i'm kinda scared of the "going under" part. i've never been "asleep" before and it's kinda creepy to think about. not only that, but of coarse i keep thinking of an old episode of "The View" that i saw once. the entire show featured guests who had surgeries, and while they were "under" they could still hear and feel everything - ahhh!!! so if you think of me, say a little prayer. okay, actually say a big prayer. i feel silly to be nervous about something so routine, but hey, everyone is entitled to be chicken once in a while.
