My Sister is Famous!!! Part 2

Jillian's first online album is now available at Cdbaby - click here to go to her page!

"Indie acoustic melodies and lyrics that sound like lullabies and feel like sunshine."

8 great original songs for only $5.99! How could you not buy it? :) Honestly, her songs are really some of my favorites. They make you think and also make you happy. You can hear excerpts at cdbaby too.

If you like Jill's music, please feel free to re-blog (is that a word?) this so that we can help her spread the word.

If you want to hear full songs, go to her myspace:

Also, she is opening for Sleeperstar at House of Blues here in Dallas on May 1. Clint and I will be there and we'd love to get a group to go! Check it out! How cool is that?!?!

Isn't she just the cutest??

Biking.... again!

This time it was Erwin Park up in McKinney. We went there because my 5 yr old nephew (who lives in McKinney) had his tonsils removed (which I'm jealous of) so we stopped by to see him on the way.

We've had easier 4 mile rides... This one was tough because I'm used to the 50 degree days we've been having, today was in the 80's. The last two times I went were when Lauren was busy with the 2nd half of her friends who ALL decided to get married this year, so she hasn't been in a while. We both shouldered a tree but we didn't crash, we got a good workout in and shot a short video of a fun spot we found on the trail.

The sound at 0:05 isn't a bird ;)

What is...

...the cutest thing you have ever seen at a bridal shower? I need some cool ideas! Games, decorations, favors, anything you have seen done that was really thoughtful, inventive or cool. My cousin is getting married and we are throwing her a family shower - and her family threw me one and just did so much really sweet stuff for me. (Think hand initialed, homemade iced cookies, hand tied favor boxes in our colors, a game involving a video of my soon-to-be husband, a cake from Stein's, amazing food...etc.) So, since I'm pretty sure my readership (if you can call it that) is 99% female, I thought I'd ask for suggestions.

Also, I need more followers!! If you read our blog, scroll down and click "Follow." Come on. I look like a nerd.

Happy Monday everybody. Just four more days until Friday. Haha.

A couple pics from the shower the Lilley's threw for me. I wish I had more on my computer right now...I need to get them from my mom.
