I apologize i'm a terrible blogger. but lately we've been rehearsing for at least five hours a day. its a lot. but its very much worth every minute. all the girls are amazing. so sweet and thoughtful. we went to lulu's restaurant last night and it was the coolest place i've ever been to eat ever ever. its owned by lucy buffett. jimmy buffetts sister. but besides that this week is straight rehearsal. my muscles definately hurt. all the talents are incredible we got to watch everyone's talent today in full costume and everything. incredible. tomorrow is interview for me then thursday the preliminary rounds begin so i'm definately anxious for that. our host family is very sweet and all the stories you hear about southern hospitality are true true. i'm qutie sleepy now seeing as we're two hours ahead so i will see everyone soon!!
