In addition to Seeing the Pope on Wednesday the last week has just been one busy week. Last Friday the Drama Teen Auditioned for Nashville Star!
She didn't get chosen but that was Ok....although it would have been wonderful for her to have been picked we didn't necessarily expect it...to be honest it doesn't look like she really had a chance anyway....it seems they were really looking to pick an Active Duty Military person.( preferrably IN Uniform)
But it was a really fun experience for her. And they DID tell her she did REALLY well at her Audition. I figured maybe they say that to everyone, but then she said they went in 3 at a time, and they didn't say anything to the other two who were in there with her.
The film crew also took lots of video of her before the Audition, and interviewed her a few times....so who knows....she might still get on the show...even if it's just during the preliminary ones where they show contestants waiting to Audition and such.
Then On Saturday we went to DC to visit with Olga the Russian girl who stayed with us a few years ago. She had been chosen to come to DC with about 6 or 7 other students to attend some classes and meetings at University of Maryland, and they had the whole weekend to themselves..so the Drama Teen and the Recruit came with me to DC to see her. It was such a beautiful day. Perfect weather. We met her at her Hotel and then walked down to the Metro to go into DC and visit on the Mall at the Smithsonian...She wanted to check out the Air and Space Museum but the line to get in was horrible so she decided she wanted to see the Lincoln Memorial instead...she said it was her favorite. It was a really great day, I was sorry to have to say good bye again.
Here I got some video coverage of Benedict going up the stairs . I ahd a great shopt right over the shoulder of the man standing in front of me. Benedict got to the top and as he turned and spread his arms the guy decided to lift his arm to wave at the Pope , right in front of my Camera AACCKKK..oh well...
Here the Bishops and Cardinals are arriving. This Bishop got his camera out to take pictures of us...LOL....everyone thought that was funny.
This Cardinal was the only one who actually came up to the Baracades to greet us. We all thought that was really cool of him.

I had hoped to particpate in Big Mama's Fashion Fiesta..It is probably too late to add myself to her linky . She said she was going to close it at midnight tonight. I was going to make the post earlier today...BEFORE the crash...never got the chance.
As for jewelry, this is what I've been wearing lately. Most of these can be bought here as well.
Here I am today. Getting ready to run a few errands.
And better yet....when I was calling for technical help...my warranty had expired so in order to get any help I needed to pay.. it was $50 bucks for basically a one-time technical support( alhtough I guess it was good for up to two weeks..in case there are still problems?) or I could renew the warranty for a year for $100...I went with the $100 thinking hmmn it seems like a better deal....It was kind of a snap decision( I REALLY wanted my computer fixed like NOW) so I paid $100, for the technician to tell me Press F11..and follow the directions....MAN do I feel like an idiot now...I could have figured THAT out on my own, eventually....so all they had me do is wipe my hardrive clean, losing all my files...that was their $100 solution@@
