Widespread Wednesday 7.18.12

Hey Y'all!  Happy Wednesday night!  I feel like this past week I have been slacking on my blogging.  I have been so busy at work and in personal life my head is just spinning in different directions.  It is Wednesday and these are thing things that I am wild about and has brought a smile to my face!

So I have a new guilty pleasure on TV.  I am sure that by watching this show I am promoting horrible behavior by kids and it is called  Cheer Perfection on TLC.  You know the great channel that brought us Toddlers and Tiaras and Sister Wives.  Since only watching the one and only episode (so far this summer), it is about a southern cheerleading gym and forming the perfect cheerleading squads.  After watching the show, it looks like we will be watching a lot of young tween crying and their "cheer" mom's bitching and or complaining about not making the team.  I am sure that I will be drawn all season since there is nothing good on TV over the summer.

The next thing that has made me smile was listening to some old school Matt Nathanson that I found on my Ipod.  I was listening to my personal favorite album by him Still Waiting For Spring (1999).  That one album made me fall in love with Matt Nathanson.  This one album has some of my favorite songs that I can listen to over and over again.  I have been the biggest fan of Matt Nathanson's since I heard this album.  I have bought every other album, seen him 74 times in concert (I have ever ticket stub to prove it) and I am hoping that this fall I will be able to go to my 75th show.  I follow him on twitter, and he tweeted over the weekend that he was starting to write for his new album.  That put the biggest smile on my face!

So the next thing that I have been thinking and wondering a lot about is should I or shouldn't I go to my 10 year High School Reunion!?!  I have talked to my two best friends, Jen and Ellen (the three of us all graduated high school together) and we all have conflicting answers on weather if they are going or not.  First, me. I want to go but then I think is it really worth going and seeing the people I really did not kept in touch, even though we are friends on social media networks.  I am sure if I went I would be hanging out with Ellen and Jen (if they go) and maybe the other 10 people I still kind of talk to and not talk to anyone else.  Second, Ellen.  I think she is going because she see's it as you will never had another 10 year reunion; but I know that her husband really wants to go because most of his friends graduated with us.  Last but never lease Jen;  She said that she is not going at all, she has no interest in going, except that it is going to be a a brewery.  She said she really cares about what Ellen and I are up to and she talks to us at lease once a week.  I am still sitting on the bubble, because I feel the same way as both of them.  I would honestly rather go out for a nice dinner as 3 couples and enjoy our time together.  I have 3ish weeks to decided on if I am going or not.

Living in the south for the past 19 years you would think that I am use to the summer southern storms.  The past week we have had some killer ones this week.  Everyday around 2pm the rain thunder and lighting until about 6:30.  But today has been the worse since the summer started!  The storm has not ended since 2pm.  And of course the Direct TV is out because of the storm so I am catching up on DVR TV, which works for me!  It would be kind of nice to be able to watch the Braves, but I will survive!

Any one have any advice on a 10 year reunion or an artist that they love that I should check out?


  1. You get major cool points for adding Romy and Michelle to your post! haha (my fav movie)
    I just watched Cheer Perfection lastnight and am now addicted! New follower :)

    1. TLC is drawing me in with their TV shows!! I didn't know "the learning channel" could be so great!

  2. Ahh, I love cheer perfection!! I cheered from 1st grade to senior year of high school and my mom and coaches were just like those ladies, so I can totally relate. Looooove it! I just can't remember what nights it comes on...? Haha.

    1. I wish I knew what time it was on but I watched the re-play around 7ish Wednesday night! Glad I am not the only one who is watching it!
