ODE to Rachel!!!

So many things have happened since i last wrote. I'll spare you from the Breaking Dawn obsession. Oh where to begin... Well I did try out for AI at the end of July. Me, my cousin Dave, my mom and my aunt Debbie all went. We got up at 3:30 in the morning to be down at the ESA at 5:00am to stand in line... for 3 hours. We did a lot of waiting and then they cattle called us down to the floor so we could try out in groups of 4. So the guy that was judging me asked me to sing 4 songs. Then he said he was letting me go because i had the "voice" just not the stage presence. What the??? I guess i just didnt understand. If they wanted me to perform to my fullest, they should have asked. I was just doing what they asked me to do. But oh well. I know now that AI is just not for me. At least i can say i did it. Then the day after, me and dallas where invited to go to Lake Powell with our good friends family, the Johnsons. Derek and Nicole are our friends and it was so fun! We stayed for 4 days and just had a blast. I actually got up on the knee board and i did a little surfing off the back of the boat. That is HUGE for me. It really was the funnest thing we have done all summer. We love them and are glad they asked us to go with them. Here are some pics. Enjoy!


The flowers Dall got me for AI. He is just so sweet!


Us on the molecule. This tube was Awesome!


Dallas Wake Boarding. He was really good!


Me and Nicole.. I look Terrible, dont judge!


So on a more sad note... my best friend in the whole world left yesterday for North Carolina for 4 years. Her husband Josh is going to med school there. It was a hard day for me!! But it was even harder for Ali. The day she left was her little sister Michelle's wedding day. Ali got to go to the temple but she had to leave after pictures were taken there. I was lucky enough to be invited. I feel close enough tp those girls that they could be my sisters!! I love the Hair Family! So i got to see Ali at the temple, then i just couldnt handle it any more. I just gave her my goodbye present, gave her two big hugs and just left. I started bawling all the way to my car! It was just an emotional day. So ALI.... I love you and I am so glad you are my best friend. You have been the greatest!! It's not good bye, it's See you at christmas... and I'll call you a few times every week!!!!

I can't believe about American Idol.. I mean, don't they know who you are...Angie Blair Lundquist! That's crazy and dumb. I might have to boycott watching it this next season. Love ya, and I know can you believe Sophi's faces, they do look like us. Tell Dall I said,"Hey Dallas",and you have to make a hideous face when you say it. I love you

I was in shock and awe when I saw my name on your blog! That was me you are oding isn't it? That actually sounds like a really good classical song. I so wish I could have been with you at your AI auditions. I was so sure you would go on and I would be going to Hollywood to see you. Judges are so dumb! Love ya! xoxoxoxox

Hey angie, it's me kaci johnson. I stumbled upon your blog so I hope you don't mind. Just wanted to let you know if nicole hasn't told you already, but I put all the pics I took at Powell on a cd for them so if you want those pics of you and dallas on the knee board then they have them. Hope all is going well and it was really fun to meet you and dallas. Hopefully I'll see you again!

Congrats on AI. I totally think you have what it takes, the voice, the look, the presence, too bad for them. They are missing out on something amazing! Trust me, ever since high school I have been in love with your voice. That is probably why I wanted you to sing the national anthem so much! You are Fabulous. If you ever make a cd, I will totally buy it!

Ali and Josh Holt said...

So I am totally disappointed in AI's taste!!!! I thought you would sail through! Oh, well, it is their loss. Although now I have a distaste for their talent recruiters.....they could be missing out on lots of really great people!!!

TEISHA said...

ANGIE!!!! Oh my gosh! I cant believe you found me! How are you> YOU GOT MARRIED!!! I was just talking to Preston about you a few days ago! It is so great to see what you are up to. We really should get together sometime!
