First off, let me just say I'm not sure if I like this new Blogger layout. Its really going to take me a while to get used to it I think! Anyhow, this week's song is by one of my favorite American Idol winners, Kris Allen. I had heard it online once before, but seeing him perform it on Idol last week was great. Such an amazing song with a great message!! This week's song pick is "Vision of Love" by Kris Allen. How can this song NOT make you feel good?!!? Oh and let me just say I am THRILLED it has an actual music video to go with it!! Hopefully it gets some airplay on the radio too. Enjoy!!!

Well we all know Justin Timberlake can sing, act and host SNL with the best of them, but now he is also apparently launching a line of home goods according to InStyle. JT has teamed up with an interior decorator to create a line of "wallet friendly" home goods. The home goods are available online only through homemint.com, which will officially launch in May. You can become a member of the HomeMint website for $10 a month which would allow you early access to products and discounts, but you dont have to become a member to shop the site :). If you would like to check it out click this link here: http://hmnt.co/WC2. Personally I can't wait to see what he comes up with! Especially since it is supposedly "wallet friendly"!!

So I must admit I am loving Gavin DeGraw right now. Since watching him on Dancing With the Stars this season, he has just become my new obsession :). He seems like such a sweet guy, and I LOVE his music. I actually first heard this song by him when he performed it on the series finale of One Tree Hill and absolutely loved it. Therefore, I figured I would share it with all of you :). The song is called Soldier and its on his new album, Sweeter. Hope you like it as much as I do!!

High School Career Class
Guest written by our friend Gladys Fuentes
My son is taking a career class in high school. In the class, they have to pick a career out of a hat. The career that they pick comes with an approximate salary that they will make. So then they have to take that salary and plan a budget to live on based on that salary. I think it is a great way to get them thinking about what they want to be when they get out into the world and all the things that they will be responsible for. So all of a sudden, my son who has not really ever thought about what things cost is talking about how much it is to buy a house, what kind of a car you can get for a certain amount of money, and even how much utility rates are that he found through Shop Electricity Rates Texas. And he is starting to try to give me advice on what I should be spending my money on. Even though it is a little annoying to me that he thinks he is an expert now, I am glad that something at his school is starting to make him think about important things that he never thought about before.

Well the title of my blog is "Its All Random", which is why I feel it is completely fine that I post this entry randomly :). Last night was the series finale of one of my fave shows "One Tree Hill". Now if you don't watch this show, you don't know how intense the entire (shortened) season has been. Well let me just say it has been pretty dramatic and action packed. That's why last night's calm, mellow finale was perfectly pleasing to me. Everyone ended up happy, which is just how I wanted it to end. The only thing that I was upset about this season was the removal of the iconic theme song "I Don't Wanna Be" by Gavin DeGraw. They hadn't played it the entire season during the credits. So therefore last night I was hoping they would use it since it was the final episode....but they didn't :(. Then I saw that the show was focused around live music acts and was hoping Gavin DeGraw would be one of the performers. Turns out he was. Not only did he perform two of his new songs, but the show and concert ended with the theme song to the show, with all the cast member singing along. Seriously, when I saw he was on the show I was secretly hoping for that exact ending, which means I was beyond happy when I saw that is exactly how it played out. Perfect ending to a great show if you ask me. Check it out for yourselves below. It has become one of my new favorites on YouTube :).

So this week's YouTube Tuesday was inspired by Dancing With the Stars. Are you all watching this season?? I haven't watched the last couple, but there were a few people in the cast this season that I was interested in seeing so I decided to watch. Also thanks to On Demand, I can watch The Voice and DWTS without having to take up space on my DVR :). So back to DWTS, if you aren't watching, you need to!! Im watching as I type this and it is only week three, but people are already getting 10's!! All the celebs this season are good, I can't believe it! Anyways, Gavin DeGraw was one of the reasons I decided to watch this season. I seriously love everything I hear by this guy. Loved him for years!! Im sure many of you are familiar with his song "I Dont Want to Be", but he also has done amazing covers of some classic songs. The two below are some of my faves! Hope you enjoy!!
