Good Morning My Friends!

What a beautiful Saturday Morning! And I am not just talking about the sunshine, I am talking about the fact that Riley peed in the potty this morning and is wearing big boy underpants!!!! That is like the sun shining over a rainbow onto a field of daisies as puppies and ponies frolic in the grass while I watch from the sides eating a snicker Blizzard! That’s how beautiful this moment is to me. Now we have been here before so I am prepared for some accidents and may just keep him outside most of the day so I can hose him off but this is progress! Yahoo…. I hope you all are having a wonderful summer and had a fun Fourth of July weekend. We are loving the weather and spending most of our time outside in the pool. But we are getting ready for our summer trip back to Minnesota to be with our families and I am getting excited! I love going home and it’s always filled with a ton of family and friends and I love Minneapolis/St.Paul it’s absolutely beautiful there.

I am so happy to report that The Singing Bee is doing wonderfully for CMT so thanks for all your support and please keep spreading the word. It’s on tonight 9pm eastern/8pm central!!! But as of July 25th it will move up an hour and go to 8pm Eastern Time and 7pm central. I hope you all are enjoying the show. I really had so much fun making them and hope to do more! Maybe take the Bee on the road and go do the shows in different cities! How fun would that be! So again thanks to everyone who is watching and letting CMT know you like the show. I really and truly appreciate it. HMMMM I think you all know I did Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader for charity. WOW! So hard, still recovering. I can’t say what happened but it will be fun to watch. I will let you know when it airs. What else? I am having a lot of fun with Twitter and love all of my followers “The Tweetermans” as I like to call them. Ohh and I had a Birthday. It was a pretty relaxed B-day but thanks everyone for all you wishes. I am getting old!!!!! Thanks Alex for your really sweet blog on my Bday!

Not much else to report! We are going to start packing today and do some projects around the house and enjoy the weekend. Ohh and I have to give a shout out to Nathalie Rachel Sherman of Sophia & Chloe jewelry. They let me borrow all the lovely jewelry that I wore on The Singing Bee, The CMT awards and Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader. They make beautiful things and I loved everything they let me wear! So much so that I had a hard time sending it back. If you want to check them out their website is Sophiaandchloe.com Thanks again Nathalie! I felt very special wearing your pieces and I can’t wait to wear them again.

Our dog Janet is still wearing her cone but she is doing much better. Those cones are so sad, and you know the dog is embarrassed about it. Janet looks like Doug the dog from the movie “Up”. “I do not like the cone of shame” Poor Janet! My dad is doing well too, he had some eye issues but it looks like it is all on the mend. He did not have to wear a cone, thank goodness and I am glad he is doing well.

That’s all I got peeps, gonna make some French toast for my boys and get the day going. Have a wonderful weekend!
