You can just call us the "Ultimate Procrastinators" in my household! This is how a conversation went with my mom yesterday:
Mom: “Annie, we need to get everything ready for our yard/bake sale...”
Annie: “What yard/bake sale?”
Mom: “The one we are having Friday!”
Annie: “Um Friday??? We might want to get to work then!!!"
Needless to say, I will be spending the day cleaning out the basement for stuff to sell and I've even recruited my sister and fiance to help bake till we drop after work!
However, it's all for a good cause... all the proceeds will go towards the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. You see my cousin has been battling MS now for a couple of years and we are taking part in the Northwest MS Walk in Wicker Park next Sunday. If you'd like to show your support for Team Lady Bugs, stop by tomorrow between 9a-2p on the corner of Lake Ave and 121st in the Whiting/Roberstale area. If you cannot make it out and want to help us raise money, here's a secure link!
Thanks again for your help in supporting a cause that is close to my heart! Oh, and if you want to walk registration starts 8:30am in Wicker Park Sunday, September 16th! More details here!
Did you catch Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean announcing the CMA Nominees this morning? Here is a list of some of the main catagories and who I think should win in bold!
Female Vocalist of the Year: Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift, Martina McBride and Carrie Underwood
Why is Kelly Clarkson in this group? I love Kelly as a pop singer, but let's not fool ourselves into thinking she's better than our other country females! Did we just need to fill a spot with a recognizable name?
Vocal Group of the Year: Eli Young Band, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, The Band Perry, Zac Brown Band
This is the toughest catagory for me to choose, they all have had GREAT years! However, I am a sucker for the Eli Young Band and think it'd be nice for them to finally get some credit for all their hard work!
Male Vocalist of the Year: Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Blake Shelton ("Mr. Lambert" they said), Keith Urban
After seeing Luke Bryan at Walmart and the Porter Co Fair, I am even more in love with the man! (Too bad he's married!) Keith Urban seems like the only one who doesn't really have a shot to win this year... that being said he IS Keith Urban so you never know!
Entertainer of the Year: Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley
Ever been to a Jason Aldean show? 'Nough Said.
Album of the Year: Eric Church, Chief; Miranda Lambert, Four the Record; Dierks Bentley, Home; Lady Antebellum, Own the Night; Luke Bryan, Tailgates and Tanlines
I own all these albums and they are all AMAZING! Tough call but leaning towards Dierks! However, if we're judging on what's happened in the past Miranda might be a hard one to beat!
What do you think? Let us know on Facebook!
Came across some Facebook Messages from Listener's who are looking for our help and thought I'd share!

Did you hear the news that actor Michael Clarke Duncan passed away at age 54? He was battling complications from his heart attack in July and never seemed to recover. Gotta say, I'll miss his crazy smile and deep voice! Did you have a favorite of his movies? Mine is above!
PS If you ever go to a Taylor concert DO NOT make your daughter dress up like this and sing for money! Forgot about this picture from the Country Music Fest I went to a couple of years back!
