Sweet Home Alabama? Hardly

"I am easily satisfied with the very best." -- Winston Churchill

Last week T had her "drape" senior portraits with the photographer the school uses for yearbook photos. This week she had her first session with another local photographer as a senior rep and had SO much fun! I can't wait to see these photos! She had several outfits with her and also took her lacrosse uniform and equipment. She said Mrs. S showed her a couple of the photos and the lax session was intense. All-star season is winding down for everyone and she's got her last tournament of the summer coming up in Richmond, VA. The boys teams are heading to Hershey, PA this weekend and Cosmo had several boys attending the blue chip camp in Rhode Island (and a couple of them made the blue chip all-star games which is a HUGE deal!).

KJ's getting ready for "intermediate" school registration. All our paperwork is complete, just need to pay for everything. She's nervous / excited about lockers and changing clothes for PE. She's so unorganized, I'm anxious about how this is all going to pan out. I am totally expecting frantic phone calls from daughter #2 regarding forgotten PE clothes, missing math books, science projects, etc. She's a mess and she knows it. We've bought some fun accessories for her locker and she wants to start doing some clothes shopping.

So the other night a new "dating reality" show premiered on CMT. I've only ever watched the Bachelor (maybe it was the Bachelorette??) only once. We were on spring break and we had it on the TV while wee were getting ready to go to dinner. It was this most recent season with Emily and Brad. I don't think you're going to find true love on a reality show but I liked them both and wished they had been able to make it work. Anyway, I receive a lot of info at work from the convention & visitor's bureau and tourism councils. I've read a couple of press releases about this new show on CMT and one of them mentioned that the girl is from Tennessee but is a student in Tuscaloosa (I think they mentioned Cordova, TN; not sure if that's Memphis or Nashville). She's also a big beauty queen and was Tennessee's Miss Outstanding Teen when she was 16 and does a lot of modeling. She's a very, very beautiful young lady. Even though I don't like how the show perpetrates stupid stereotypes (red necks vs. city slickers), I will continue to watch the show because she comes across as very sweet and personable.
