Last year, Doug and I agreed that American Idol was pretty much over for us. We just didn't enjoy the show that much last year. Knowing the American Idol premiere was starting last Wednesday, Doug and I decided to give it a chance. Well, I'm so glad we did. Steve Taylor and Jennifer Lopez is doing a fantastic job, I believe. In the 80's, I was a fan of "Aerosmith" with it's lead singer Steve Taylor. I've always enjoyed listening to their music. Jennifer Lopez is just amazing, if you look back from where she started and to see what she's been able to accomplish. I never knew how funny Steve can be and his famous high note on AI is funny to me because that's his signature, just like Randy Jackson's "Dawg". We've just really enjoyed watching it both Wednesday and last night. I guess Doug and I are hooked on Idol once again. LOL!
I just wanted to squeeze in a quick "Thank You" to those of you that like Colton's hair cut. I was afraid that you wouldn't like it. Doug still giggles at his hair, but he says that he likes it.
I Didn't Know
OMGoodness! I think Channing Tatum is so yummy and to think he has roots right here in Alabama. What a surprise! This video is old, but glad I ran across it.
I had to share this with you. I think they are so pretty and would make wonderful gifts. I know I would love to receive one of these.
You can get all the supplies you need to make this pendant from Hobby Lobby . The Swarovski Crystal (shown) sales for approximately $5 each. The design shown is actually scrapbook paper of your choice. and finished with a silver bail. I found this project from Little Birdie Secrets. Of course, it was recommended that you clip any excess paper sticking out with scissors, file the paper on edges just a little (don't file the crystal) with a fingernail file and apply a little diamond glaze on the back of the paper. It sounds so simple and would love to try it out.

Kit-Kat and Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
I found this recipe from Little Bitty Bakes and had to share it with you. I haven't had the chance to make them, but they sound so good. I mean, come on, anything with Kit-Kat and Chocolate Chips are bound to be delicious! Just looking at this picture makes my mouth water. I copied the recipe, so I would make sure to have it on hand.
Makes about 3 dozen large cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup crushed Kit-Kats
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat butter, peanut butter, and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat until blended.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, stirring until mixed. Stir in Kit-Kats and chocolate chips.
For large cookies, drop cookie dough by 2 tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet, 3 inches apart (I used my whoopie pie pan – muffin top pans work too). Bake about 12 minutes, until light golden brown.
Live, Laugh, Love!
