Clayken, Clothes and Vacation

Good Wednesday morning, blog world! How is your week going? Mine is going swimmingly. I think. (Actually I’m not sure what that word means. But I like how it sounds.)

I just found out via another blog that Clay Aiken (or Clayken, as I’ve dubbed him) has confirmed he’s gay. Not much of a surprise, I suppose, but at least the rumors are finally put to rest. Now despite what including this news on my blog may lead you to believe, I’m not really a fan. (Well, except for his Christmas album which I really like.)

On Sunday we officially launched The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Clothes Co-op! My friend (and co-Co-op-er) Amber posted about it. (Watch out for the phenomenal video footage. )

Today is Wednesday. Which means a week from now Chris and I’ll be on a plane bound for NY! For 12 days. I can’t wait … beachfront wedding on Long Island, Wicked on Broadway (maybe I’ll see Clayken in the city like my friend Suzanne did), time with my fam (especially this one) then on to more fun in Virgina and D.C.

While I’m playing in NY, my team at work is moving to a new part of the building (Compassion’s building is ginormous now), and wood floors are getting put in my house. When I come home I’ll practically have a whole new life! I hope Havana remembers me.

For your listening pleasure, I leave you today with a ROCKIN’ version of Wild Horses, sung by Alicia Keys and Adam Levine.

I. Love. It. (ht: Alex)

Just in case you were wondering, according to, swimmingly is an adverb meaning: without difficulty; with great success; effortlessly. So it’s true … my week is going swimmingly. How’s yours?

  1. Wow–the beachfront wedding sounds romantic! Congratulations! Our high school choir sang a huge medley from Wicked last year, so I know all the music well (I’m the piano lady). I’d love to see the musical sometime. Blessings on you all!

  2. Lately, honey, they a’int even no mo’ lines. They been crossed so many times, the sand look like a big zig-zag jumble mania. (That’s me channeling “God” as portrayed in the Shack.)
