{Almost} Famous

Someone said I look like a {somewhat famous} celebrity.
With this familiar face, it was bound to happen sooner or later, right?

One gentlemen said that I could sell insurance.
Meaning "Flo" from the Progressive Insurance Ads reminded him of me.

One dear friend said that I looked and sounded like Francesca Battistelli.
{Since I haven't listened to much music these days, I had to look her up.}
Did you know that she {co}wrote It's Your Life?
You know, the theme song used on Biggest Loser?

Gotta love a good, successful {low-range} vocalist!

Sometimes it's hard to believe that it's nearly been a year since we were involved in some sort of music ministry.  It was nice to hear 'Nator' and Gracie play on the piano today.  We will be starting lessons {hopefully soon} and music will fill our house once again.  I get all warm and toasty just thinking about it. 

My friend also said that she, Francesca and I are like soul sistas.
{Thanks, Clare!  To know you is to love you.  Seriously.}
After listening to Francesca's personality, love of food
{some of my faves by the way},
movies and hobbies... I have to agree!
Although, my waistline would never look like hers eating such foods.
It's a nice dream though.

So, it's Francesca or Flo??
If the singing career didn't pan out,
I could always sell insurance, right?

And speaking of friends,
Thank you to Sarah for this bloggy award.

Check her out.
She's great and takes cutie-patootie pix
of her sweet baby girl.
Thanks, Sarah!


  1. I had never heard of her..thanks for introducing me to a new artist!

    I think we need to hear you sing to see if you sound like her! :)

    have a great day!

  2. I knew you looked like someone familiar. I just couldn't figure it out. Both those ladies are pretty darn cute. :)

  3. I could see a resemblance in both.

    Francesca's great! We just did the "It's Your Life" song as a special a few weeks ago.

  4. Ugh I just tried to leave you a comment and it didn't go through, so I'll try again.

    Francesca is one of my favorites! I didn't know you could sing...I wish we lived close, so we could get together and do a duet....I'll do the harmony!

    So sorry you lost all of those pics and sad! I hope mine can be saved. How do you back yours up? On discs, external drive or with Picasa or something like that?

  5. Debra, it was a young external hard drive that crashed. Now, I back them up on discs and upload them to a site like walgreens and such quickly just in case. I really hope you're able to recover yours! ((hugs))

  6. Told ya! :) ...Love it! she sings my life songs! and I always picture you singing them! You have such a gift for singing. I miss ya! clare :)


I always enjoy reading what you have to say... It makes my day! ;)
