surprised?

So...





Is anyone as surprised as I was last night when David Cook won American Idol? I thought for sure that David Archuleta had it in the bag...but you never know I guess! This was the first year that I loved both in the final 2...so I was happy either way. I thought that based on Tuesday's performances, Archuleta deserved to win...but Cook was awesome all season, so I knew it could have gone either way. And I didn't realize how large David Cook's following was, it just always seemed like people were going crazy over Archuleta! I DO think that David Cook was a very gracious winner...you can tell he loved little Archuleta...I thought he was really sweet when he won. Clive Davis would be crazy not to sign David Archuleta as well...I love the "Davids"...haha! It's funny how hooked I get on these shows. I've already discussed all of this in detail with my husband (who cared soooooo much), my sister Karly, and Kim. This is very serious stuff. Haha!



So anyways, that's my 2 cents on American Idol, and I'd love to hear YOUR two cents, too! So post away. And guess what...it begins tonight all over again with "So You Think You Can Dance". Yippee!!!



And speaking of dancing, some more pictures of Payton's dress rehearsal last weekend:








It's another rainy day here so we're stuck in the house today. AND this is the second day in a row that our flooring guy hasn't showed up. AArrrgghh! I just DO NOT do well when my house is a disaster. Graham keeps telling me to stop being such a "girl" about it, but I can't help it! I want my floors done so I can clean up all the sawdust and walk in my kitchen!



Anyways...off to entertain the kiddies somehow. Later!

I just came across this from the goodie box and think both of you girls are so talented! It's so fun to see all the things you come up with. Your little girl is absolutely adorable! I too was kind of shocked when David Cook won. I also liked both of them- although I think the last few weeks I've started favoring Archuleta more- he's just so darn cute and innocent. I agreed with Simon when he said he didn't care who won because he likes both of them so well.... I'm sure we'll see great things from the two of them!

I can't even believe how beautiful your daughters hair is. . . luck girl. I can't even get a barrette to stay in my 3 yr olds hair.
As for David and David (wasn't that a band in the 80's??) Archie had a good voice, but open your eyes when you sing boy! Couldn't stand his eyes being shut and the constant lip licking! Cook was better singer through the season. Archie always sang the sappy ballads. Glad that Cook won, I think the producers were glad too. Archie's dad was a pain in the rear.
I'm done with reality TV until next season of American Idol. Bring on the Netflix for the summer . . .

my husband says he knew all along it would be the davids in the final 2, and it would be Cook to win. he should have bet money! I kind of was leaning towards Cook too. more of a rocker. although I really like little david's singing. they were both really good! and I too love Payton's hair! gorgeous.

Yay David Cook!! I was so happy that he won!! Even though they are both super talented, I think David is definitly more multifaceted in that he can sing anything and be amazing, whereas i think david a. struggles with more upbeat faster songs. Barely anything David A. sang this year was fast and catchy, and when he did he usually got criticised for it. However, bottome line...what MAN could sing Mariah Carey and make it sound like a #1 hit??? That in itself deserves a major nod! Yay Cook! I cannot wait until his CD drops.

I think lot of people liked both Davids. I did as well. I definately think David A did better the evening before. He was awesome. I thought I liked them pretty much 50/50 but turns out I was still disappointed at the result. I'm sure David A has an amazing career ahead of him. His voice is so clear and angelic. And he's only 17!!!!!! It's amazing the talent some people have.

And... I'M SOOOOOOOO EXCITED ABOUT SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE starting tonight too. YEY!!!!!! :D

love the photos of Payton... ahhhh so cute. As for the "Davids" I didn't really follow this season, but liked them both. I saw Cook on Jay Leno & was so impressed. Very humble, kind & gracious. The kind of "Idol" that we can really admire!!
