  • Carrie Underwoods Sweet, Shocking Move

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    I know she is more of a country artist but man oh man, she is one classy lady!

    Carrie Underwood is currently wrapping up her Blown Away tour and she recently lost her voice following a concert in Chicago. She decided to go ahead with her show at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, Iowa on Friday night.

    I give this girl credit because it is not easy singing with hardly any voice! She powered through her songs for more than 90 minutes and she only cut out a few from her set. She was not satisfied with her performance so she decided to make it up by pledging to donate any money she made from the concert and give it all back to Des Monies! How cool is that? 

    She still sounded amazing!

  • New eyeglasses for me!

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    I've seen these eyeglasses around lately. I see celebrities wearing them too. I have a pair of Ray Bans for sunglasses and I LOVE them. So, I thought why not get a similar pair of eyeglasses. What do you think, can I pull it off? Dorky? OR Not dorky?

  • Moments That Restored Our Faith in Humanity This Year

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    I was so upset and frustrated Friday. A friend sent me a link to Buzzfeed showing the 16 moments that restored our faith in humanity. While looking at this, it made me realize all the good that has been going on in OUR Country! Plus, it made me cheer up! 

    Here are some of my favorite photos:

    Kelly Clarkson got an early Christmas present this year. Her boyfriend, talent manager Brandon Blackstock, proposed to her on Friday. She shared the good news on twitter on Saturday. 

    I am in LOVE with this ring and I'm sure Kelly Clarkson is too! Who wouldn't say yes to this? 

  • Best text message I've gotten so far!

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    I get a lot of texts and phone calls from listeners. Yes I get some strange ones but they do make me laugh. I've gotten asked out on dates as well and sorry but I will always say no. Not trying to be mean but, that's not my ideal way of meeting a man! :) 

    Tonight I got this message and it made me laugh out loud all by myself. It is by far my favorite text message at the moment! 

  • Little boys standing up for their sisters! ADORABLE!

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    The Hollis family lives in a small town in central Illinois and woke up one morning to find their home and cars had been spray painted. The family had been attacked because they have two little girls with Down Syndrome. 

    The little girl's brothers decided they wanted to make a video to speak up for their sisters. The Hollis boys are only 6 and 7. 

    Watch this video below. It gave me the chills and feel free to share it as well to get the word out! 

  • Happy Birthday Taylor Swift!

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    Taylor Swift is 23 today and for her birthday she released her new music video for her latest hit "I Knew You Were Trouble." 

    I like the video because I haven't seen anything like this for a while. Yes, it is long and yes, it is Taylor Swift. But, man oh man, I LOVE this song!
