Good Morning Friends!!!

I am sitting outside on another gorgeous Los Angeles Day and watching Riley swim in the pool. Life really can’t get much better than this. Well, unless at the same time someone was inside cleaning my house and making me lunch but I will take what I can get. I hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day. I know I did. I got to sleep late and had some lovely presents and went on a picnic with Riley and John. It was perfect! I am very busy getting ready to start taping the Singing Bee for CMT and am really excited about it. It is a really fun show and the people involved are super nice. There will be a sneak Peek of the show after the CMT awards on June 16th and then it will start airing on Saturday Nights on CMT so please check it out. You can go to for more details. And if your in Los Angeles please come see me at a taping! I would love that! What else is new? I am not happy about the fact that my pants are getting tight. I so need to get back to working out but I have to admit I have been very lazy and enjoying food, especially pizza and anything Riley leaves on his plate. Why would a person ever leave French fries on their plate!!!! They are French Fries!!!! The most perfect food in the world!!! And of course I just can’t leave them all alone on the plate, that’s wasteful. Times are tough people!!!!! We can’t waste!!!! Anywho I am back on the food wagon but there will be a little more of me to love on the Singing Bee. My muffin tops have muffin tops of there own. I have been loving American Idol again this year and can’t wait for the finale tonight. I am a little disappointed that Alyson isn’t in the finals I thought she was amazing and reminded me of my favorite Idol of all time a certain Kelly Clarkson! Who I miss seeing every weekend on tour with Reba. That truly was the most fun I ever had. I am looking forward to going back to Minnesota this summer and spending time with my family. I really miss seeing them and I so love being back home. I love it when Riley sees family everyday. I am also doing a charity event on July 20th here in LA for a theater company I have been involved in called Buzzworks. It’s a great non-profit theater committed to doing new plays. And the event will be so fun. It’s going to be a salute to the 80’s and we will be doing a parody/staged reading of the Breakfast Club. I will be playing Molly Ringwalds part. So again if you live in Los Angeles please come. I will have more details as the event gets closer. HMMMMMMMMMMM I wish I had more exciting news for everyone. OHHHH I know my ten year anniversary is coming up on June 5th. I can’t believe it!!!! Ten years!!! The only thing I can say is if someone can make you laugh chances are you can get through anything. And John still makes me laugh. Oh I know. I got to be a part of Reba’s A&E biography. They interviewed me last week in Nashville and I was honored to be asked to be a part of it. It was very cool and I did cry once. Okay maybe twice. But I think it’s going to be a great show. I don’t know when they will air it on A&E but be on the lookout for it. I am going to have to think about showering soon as I am having lunch with one of my favorite people in a couple hours. My BF, Reebs! I have been missing her as she has been very busy and all over the place. So I am looking forward to catching up with her. What else? And I am not just putting off taking a shower. I guess I am just wishing everyone a laugh today, maybe even an extra French fry off a friends plate or getting to share lunch with someone who makes you happy. I am grateful for so many things I have been blessed with and right now I have to go towel off my favorite one. He is done swimming and wants a popsicle.
