OK, Chris, you're making it hard for me to finish packing. LOL Candy, you're a star! (Oh, yea, Chris, you, too!heehee)

Carrie said...

LOL Chris, you need to make a video at the picnic so we can all be e-famous.

I should be packing, too, but I'm too tired so I'm going to just do it all tomorrow. Talk about last minute! Umm someone who is going -- I need either someones number or something in case I get lost. I can give out mine too just not over the blog because I don't want random telemarketers calling me.

Hischild said...

Just popping in after excitedly coming home from the Glendale AI concert and I find this!!!
HaHaHaHa!
Chris, good thing you shut down that camera before kicking that kids butt! Otherwise you'd be about as popular as Don Imus!
(shudder)

Loved the video. I agree w/Carrie. Let's make a picnic video! Can we?
Carrie, I'll try to get you my phone #. We won't be there until Friday afternoon though.

I'll be posting a concert review if anyone is interested in reading it. Will post link here later.

EmilyBoo said...

That actually made me LOL. Yes, please make a picnic video, I'd love to see it even though I'm jealous that I won't be there. Everyone have a safe trip!

chamilton said...

I am so glad that he put that up all ready I was about to bust to tell but wanted to wait until he posted it. HAHAHAH I had so much fun that was AWESOME !!!!!!!

Went to Oklahoma City with Candy & kids. What a great time. Chris we love you!! We wore our Chris Sligh shirts & Candy wrote 'running back to Oklahoma to see Chris Sligh' on her car. We had gone to the Tulsa concert also. Can't wait to see where we go next. Wish it was going to be Nashville. What a super nice guy Chris is!!!

Joel said...

Hey Chris!

first time reader (i added this same comment to your theology blog-please don't think i'm obsessive) it's amazing how much we have in common! 1. I lead worship, 2. I lived in Germany (dad was army-Gelnhausen), i went to private school (and homeschooled), I went to PCC (95-96-dropped out), I love writing and performing Christian music! Anyway, thought that might be interesting!

rosalee said...

Very cute.

Candy - You're famous! No wonder you didn't answer my question in the June 22nd blog about photos!

chamilton said...

Rosalee,
I did take photos. I always use my mom's camera and so she is trying to get those on photobucket so that I can share. I have really good pictures from the OKC show and Tulsa so trying to get both of those on so that I get those out.

HstryQT said...

carrie ill send you mine too; its not on the list bc I wont be there til Saturday morning *boo* :(. but Ill be calling around town Saturday morning to anounce my arrival ;). (Its not my arrival thats important - its the fact that my arrival means Teddy is in town and I know thats all people care about (other than seeing Chris of course) hehe).

HstryQT said...

That was super funny :) I miss funny Chris videos - I agree with Carrie you definitely have to do one at the picnic! Oh and of course we need a group pic too!

Anonymous said...

Oh Chris, you were (truthfully) my favorite American Idol from season 6. I love, love, love your sense of humor.

Cathy Storms said...

Chris..those lyrics are beautiful. I'm in nashville. This place is beautiful. We sightseed all day.now a nap then off to the loveless cafe at about 5 or so. We are having so much fun

DJ in AL said...

Home from vaca, missed a bunch, and dude, loved this, too funny, too funny!

Have to unpack, wash, and repack for Nashville.

See you on Friday!

Risa, you better be gone by now! You must be, my phone didn't ring today!

chamilton said...

Hey all,
So I was just able to see my You Tube video with Chris. (The State of Kansas has decided that we are surf protected from the You Tube Site)I have to tell ya, It was HOT in OKC and usually my hair looks alot like Chris's only longer and curls not so tight because I have too have been blessed or cursed(depends on the day) with natural curly hair. So even though hair looked bad. I still had too much fun until later when the baby got sick. Take care all of you and I am excited to see posts from Nashville even though I feel a little bad because I am missing it.

Candy

rosalee said...

Hey Candy -

I put you on the front page on Chris-Sligh.Info.(Video also added to ChrisSligh.com)

chamilton said...

Thank you Rosalee... Bad hair and all I think that is so cool.. Are you not going to Nashville or are you there and still posting?

chamilton said...

okay, I just seen it that is soooo AWESOME!!!! I don't even care about the bad hair. Thank You Thank You Thank You

Carrie said...

I'm bringing my laptop to Nashville (leaving in the morning I CANT BELIEVE IT!!!) and will post pictures around here when I can for those who were unable to make it.

I looked at the weather and it looks like its going to be rainy all week :( but lets hope it passes!

risalea said...

Hey guys-posting from the road. I am about 40 minutes out and I think Carmen is the same. It is a good thing the family is coming separately-no room as I am packed full! So excited-can't believe it's here!

bmorebamma said...

lol. clay akien . zak efferon, those kids weren't watchin the same idol that most saw last year. jordin sparks a GUY geez those folk musta been living in a cave. btw here's hoping that everyone has a safe a happy 4th and as they tell us rarly and often here in bmore , leave the fire works to the pros.lol

risalea said...

Carrie, don't worry. Scattered showers is standard southern forecast. Just means you have a 20 percent chance of being under the passing cloud. LOL

chamilton said...

I am really having a hard time and I need some help... I have court all day tomorrow, but if I left from the courthouse and drove most of all night and maybe some Friday morning, I might be able to make it. Does anybody know what ticket and motel availability is?

risalea said...

Candy, the picnic and the concert are on Sat. not Friday. The picnic starts at noon. Just let us know if you are coming so we can adjust the head count. The picnic is $15 and you can just bring it with you. We have already taken down the paupal link. The concert ticket is a separate admission. You can purchase online at www.3rdandlindsley.com or at the door if tickets are still available.

chamilton said...

Risa,
You are a jem. Thanks for all your help. I did look at the motel and as of last night there was still room. I will be trying to make stuff fall in to place today and will decide what to do after work. Thanks again and I hope all are having fun.

Hischild said...

Oh man! Coming here and reading you guys on the road, and some already there (cathy)LUCKY!! I'm VERY excited to be packing today!!
I have SO much to do, don't know why I'm here except that it's an addiction.

Chris,
Just have to say AI may have screwed you Season 6'ers over in some ways on the show BUT you definately had the best arranged tour show! From what I experienced Tuesday night, it's a darn good thing some of those Idols can REALLY SANG because the format stunk to high heaven!

See ya soon (God willing)!
~clarissa

Hischild said...

Oh, to follow up on my previous post, I never posted a concert review because I spent an hour typing a VERY detailed one and then lost it somehow. GRRRR!!! At 1AM I was not about to try again!
No time for re-doing now either. Oh well.

rosalee said...

Candy -

I'm leaving for Nashville tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

Hello Chris & All,

Sending wishes from the West Coast of Canada that you all experience a fabulous picnic and concert, and create some wonderful memories.

With you in spirit !
Shalom

Nique's Nana said...

A friend attended the AI7 concert last night in San Diego. He said it was really a great show and the sound was fantastic. His only complaint was that the idols sang the same songs they san on the show.

I'm surprised that he said the sound was fantastic, because last year at the same venue it was (in my opinion) bad.

Nique's Nana said...

To Cathy Storms, so glad to hear you made it to Nashville safe and sound and that you're having a wonderful time. I've been to Nashville once and yes, it is beautiful. Did you get the map I sent you?

Hischild said...

Nique's Nana,
About the concert: I was a bit dismayed at the songs too. When each Idol only gets 3 songs and they make 2 of them ones you've heard them do over and over again on YouTube, it's a bit of a bummer.
However, Brooke sang Feist's 1234. WONDERFUL song choice and then back to the piano to sing "Yellow" by Coldplay, I think. I'd never heard it before and it was GREAT!
Syesha singing Beyonce's "Listen" was incredible!
I'm a Jason Castro lover and he sang SOTR, Daydream and Gnarls Barkley's Crazy. Then he was GONE! POOF! One group # at the end. So what!
At least I was in the 12th row and I think he heard me yell at the also older and enthusiastic lady a few rows ahead of me "ISN'T HE BEAUTIFUL???" :o) That was fun!

DJ in AL said...

Candy, I hope you can make it, the more the merrier!

Carrie, Risa is right about the rain 20% in TN is almost no chance at all. But no worries we will still have fun, Chris will be there so how can we not?

Cathy, Risa and Carmen I'm super jealous you are having fun without me, see ya'll in the a.m. hoping to be there no later than 10:30!

Lori, see ya Sat.

Wish you were all coming, for those who can't make it you will be there in spirit and we will raise a glass of sweet tea to you! Or maybe Pepsi for you nondrinkers:)


Sending love to my fellow Fro Patroers and Happy 4th of July!

DJ in AL!
P.S. Rosalee, I have packed your koozie! I know you are excited!

DJ in AL said...

Shalom,

I meant to say, we will miss you! Would have loved to meet you in person!

DJ

rosalee said...

Yeah DJ -

I'm not sure which I am more excited about - the koozie or that Rotel dip....

I guess if the koozie had a Slighcon on it, then it would be a Sligh-koozie (do you think Sandy would appreciate that?)

risalea said...

It is WAAAAAYYY too early to be awake when I was up waiting for my family to arrive until after 1, but my lovely son's cell alarm went off at 6, and then I couldn't get back to sleep. DJ comes in this morning, as well as Rosalee sometime today. Can't wait to meet both in person for the first time, as well as the other picnic attendees. Hope everyone has a great 4th of July. We are so lucky to live in this great country!

chamilton said...

Hey y'all,
Hope that everyone is having a great time. Looks like plan is not going to work out.. I tried real hard to get to meet all of you. I had everything set in Tn. but can't find sitter for the kids and really don't want to bring them along due to the baby getting sick last weekend and being so far away from home. So, everybody be safe, have fun, looking forward to updates from you all.Get your faces rocked off by Chris and Happy 4th to everyone. Take Care. I am going to fireworks stand because if I can't be with you guys I might as well blow stuff up in my back yard.

Candy

Deb in TN said...

So sorry things didn't work out for you, Candy....wish you were going to be there with the rest of us....hopefully, there will be another and you'll be there for sure....Be careful at blowing things up in your backyard....If we don't hear from you for a short while, we'll know the neighbors called ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms), FBI or your State Bureau of Investigations and you're in the slammer on suspected terrorist charges....keep the explosions small and don't make too much noise...LOL

Hope all the picnic'ers already in Nashvegas are having fun....I'm looking forward to meeting you all....I'll be dropping the dogs off to board at 8am when they open and then shoot that way...hopefully, I can get there in time to help some of you ladies out if you need an extra hand....Last time I checked, our Saturday weather in Nashville (according to Memphis TV) is 40% chance of thunderstorms, partly sunny and high of 85 (which is a blessing compared to 94)...Hope our luck will hold out and any rain will come either very early or late in the day....Ya'll have fun today.....

AND, keep your eye out for Kenny Chesney....he's in town and will be doing a concert Saturday 3pm afternoon right across the river from us...you may have a sighting today.... :)

See ya'll tomorrow.....see you too, Chris.

Amy's purple poodles said...

pI am so JEALOUS reading about you all getting ready for the picnic! I couldn't watch the video because I couldn't figure out how to get it to work-I'm such a computer idiot, plus my computer is already screwed up. Only 16 more days till my brother gets here to visit and look at my computer-if he can't fix it I don't know what I'm going to do.
All you going to the picnic have an awesome time! If only I had found this blog earlier...oh, well, can't wait to hear how things went. Happy 4th of July and have lots of fun. Remember us who couldn't make it!

chamilton said...

No police involvement of any kind. I did learn an important lesson, morter shells should not be saved for a year because they explode on the ground and I hate the smell of burnt hair. Good thing I have LOTS!!! I only set two small fires. I love the 4th of July almost as much as Halloween. So hope everyone is having fun and keeping safe. Hoping to hear much news on tomorrow or Sunday. Take care all.

Candy
P.S. Deb in tn, you are too funny!! It's like you know mebecause I really do like to blow things up!!!!

risalea said...

OK, blog report:
Chris Sligh is AWESOME and so is his lovely wife, Sarah
(oh, sorry, you knew that)

After seeing DJ movin' and groovin' tonight at Chris's show at the Mt. Juliet fireworks extravaganza, I do think it's possible we may see table dancing tomorrow night. (I know she won't read this until she goes home. heehee)

I haven't met one person I didn't like....the Fro Patro is DYNOMITE!

And on that note, it is way too late and I need to head to bed. Night, all!

xangelglitterx said...

HstryQT said...

5 am and im up feeding teddy one last time before we hit the road - be in town by 10 - todays picnic day, yay!

Cathy Storms said...

Yeah..It's picnic day. Last night we had a concert from Chris & fireworks. It was awesome!! Nashville is beautiful and we are having so much fun. I will be so sad when this is over...

DJ in AL said...

Risa,

You sneaky thing! And I can't make any promises that I WON'T be dancing on the tables tonight! Hey, it's Chris Sligh, what can I say? I am, what I am, sis!

To all that couldn't make it, you are here in spirit, and you are missed! We promise to share all the details.

More later....

Have a great Saturday wherever you are!

DJ in NASHVILLE!

Carianne said...

HAHAHA this is HILARIOUS!!! Oh I know I am a little late on this one, but I just watched it twice and it just got funnier and funnier!

Have fun at the picnic everyone! Maybe next year I'll be able to afford a flight over! Bring back lots of pics and stories :)

ROFL! you are so hilarious, I just love your sense of humor. You were definitely my favorite contestant of that season. My whole family loved you... Although I wouldn't have LET them like anyone else even if they wanted to :P

gdahimself said...

DJ: "And I can't make any promises that I WON'T be dancing on the tables tonight!"
Try to be a bit ladylike.
No scandalous reports coming out of Nashville on CNN.

other,
I guess the sketch clip is a little over the top. Skip the clipped clip.

Carrie said...

back from the picnic.

it was FUN! I won best bbq sauce woo!

xangelglitterx,
I KNEW I FORGOT TO BRING SOMETHING! Oh man. I feel bad now because I was all over the place packing and had a diff neckace on at the time. Aww I'm sad now I forgot it. But it's okay, I have pictures of it everyone can see!

Caet said...

That was funny! LOL! I loved it!
You are so awesome!
Just so ya know I liked you and Blake Lewis. Jordan Sparks is cool, but not my fav. I loved watching you preform last night. You were amazing!
