She owes me...

I usually don't watch any sort of awards show or anything when they're on TV. I'll watch the red carpet specials before the shows, but never the shows themselves. Last night was the exception. Carrie was up for big awards. You know...Carrie Underwood. I love love love LOVE her! So when she walked away with not one, but two awards last night at the CMAs I remembered how she got where she is today. Here's the story...

It was a little over two years ago when Carrie became the American Idol. I remember it quite well. She was one of my picks from her very first audition...I just knew she could win it! You know how on the show, they pull the bottom three out every week and eliminate someone from there...well, she was never in the bottom three. Never. She was a crowd favorite from day one. It came down to the finals...it was either her or Bo Bice. Bo Bice...sick. So I watched them both sing, "I wanna be inside your heaven," for the finale and I knew Carrie had it won hands down. Clint, however liked Bo. Who does that? So we made an agreement right there. He could vote for Bo twice and I could vote for Carrie twice. We shook, we voted, and he went on with his evening. I went for a walk later that night with my cell phone, and little did Clint know I was calling in and voting for Carrie the entire time! I probably racked up about forty calls for her...I was so proud.

Needless to say Carrie won, nobody was surprised. Clint didn't find out what I did for quite some time and it's still a rough subject to bring up. He thinks I cheated...I just played smarter than he did. I admit that I cried my eyes out when she sang the final night. She was and is sooo good. So last night, I may have teared up again when Carrie won female vocalist of the year, but please don't tell Clint! He'll make fun of me even more.

In other news, Sigma Gata Kai lost in the quarter finals. Who knew Tony Romo was enrolled at ACU? The girl was unbelievable. Oh well, we're geared up for basketball now. Oh, and DeAnna's gonna walk away with the Bachelor....I call it, she'll owe me too.
