Register and Vote!!

We will decide what happens on November 4th over the next few days. Voter registration deadlines are looming in most states. If you aren`t registered to vote, you only have a few days left! If you are registered, encourage others to as well. It`s easy and can be done right online. The people you encourage to register could decide this election!!!

Let's make sure Barack Obama wins on November 4th and doesn`t default to McCain simply because more Republicans are registered!!!!!

To get registered to vote or make sure your friends are registered, go here:

DO IT!!!! We need a change and that change can only happen if enough voters register and get to the polls on election day to vote Obama! Right now there are more republicans registered then democrats and you know what that could mean!!!!!!!

REGISTER and VOTE people! No excuses!! You owe it to your country! People fought and died so you could have the right to vote! Don`t let their efforts be in vane!

Watch "A More Perfect Union"

American Idol SUCKS

So, Giovanni is HANDS DOWN the BEST singer I have ever known. No joke. The first time I heard him sing I was in total awe, and anyone who knows me knows I`m his biggest fan, always bragging about him... (it`s probably annoying now that I think about it). Anyways, I digress... SO, Gio has tried out for American Idol again this year (it was the 3rd time) and he got passed through the first few rounds. They gave him a "golden ticket" to come back a month later, which was today. So, he`s been preparing for a whole month; mentally, physically and, of course, vocally. He was 100% prepared and went in confidently. First few judges passed him, no problem, then he had to sing for this old British dude. All the guy said was, "You aren`t what the show is looking for".
WHAT??? This show isn`t looking for TALENT? I`m seriously in total shock! Anyone who knows him can see what an incredible singer he is! He gets paid to sing for goodness sake! He`s been a professional singer for 8 years! People pay him to sing at weddings, concerts, birthdays, church and for charity events.. he get paid to sing on other artists albums! He sang at many Phoenix Suns games, did charity events with Queen Latifah and Earth Wind and Fire! My point is (I could go on an on, but none of you need the whole bio) the STUPID SHOW is totally rigged! I`m telling you! You gotta be fat, too tall, goofy, stupid, horrible at singing, Rastafarian, in the military, bald, blind or something else outrageous! They aren`t looking for TALENTED SINGERS! They are looking to meet a freaking quota! It`s a reality TV show that needs ratings, and they`ll try anything... using the contestants as bait. That show has totally gone down hill! The group songs are a joke. Half the contestants can`t even sing (can someone say Sanjiah? Or, what about the winner, Taylor Hicks? What the hell happened to that guy?!!?)
On top of all of that, their contract is absolutely ridiculous. They reserve the right to completely embarrass you at any given time. They control how you dress, what you sing, how you wear your hair, where you go... basically your every move, for the next 3 years. It`s insane! Then you are stuck on tour with a bunch of karaoke singers for the next year and you have to dance like your on High School Musical for a bunch of teeny boppers....
Gio, your better off doing it your way anyways. We just gotta save enough money to put out your album. Who needs bogus reality TV anyways? Your fans will love and respect the fact that you worked hard and persevered! Look out world, Giovanni Amato will be the next American Idol and it won`t be because of a stupid TV show!

I love you baby!! ROCK ON!!!!

Okay, so I decided to start taking yoga again.... As you can see from my last post, the gym membership is not working out so well. Although, I did make it to the gym yesterday and feel fantastic, I really think it`s the yoga classes that are paying off. My boss and good friend, Eleni, and I have been trying to make it to class at least 3 times a week. It`s hard to squeeze anything else into my already crazy schedule, but yoga is SO worth it! It`s much more then a fitness thing, it really is the entire scope, the "mind, body AND soul" of it that makes the greatest impact. It is too easy to get caught up in the stress, worry and business of day to day life. Taking a mental break that reminds you who you really are and what life is about, that`s necessary.
For now I`m content going a few times a week at level 1, but not for long. For years now I`ve been wanting to teach. Back when I was younger I used to teach yoga for a woman's group at church. Since then it`s always been my dream to teach again, but i knew I needed to get certified and so it always got put on the back burner. Now, 8 years later, I think I`m ready. Eli is a year old now and I can no longer use "I just had a baby" as an excuse. I want to get certified and teach yoga within the next year.
One of my favorite quotes says, "A goal without a plan is just a wish."
So, here I go. Yoga class 3 times a week is the start...
What are your dreams, goals, wishes, desires? Do you have a plan?
