Lee Wins and I Have Souvenirs!

The DH and I were over at Mt Prospect Village Green for the American Idol finale. We were hoping and it happened - the local guy, Lee DeWyze won!

When I get involved with anything, I like to get little souvenirs and stuff to stoke my enthusiasm and also as keepsakes, like when I bought the keychain saying I Brake For Garage Sales, or when I bought all the Bingo paraphernalia - the carrying case, the dabbers, at one time electronic chips and a special magnet wand to scoop them up, not to mention the little trinkets to arrange near the cards for good luck.

 
So, it was no exception at the celebration. Beforehand, I had my friend, Deb, pick up a Vote 4 Lee tee shirt, which I wore to the occasion. I came home with another tee shirt saying Mt Prospect's own American Idol, Lee DeWyze, plus a wristband that says I voted for Lee, plus a balloon that says BE LEE VE. I took lots of photos also. It was a really fun night.

What about you? Are you into getting all the little extras to remember an occasion or to reinforce your enjoyment of a hobby?

  1. It was wild when they showed it on TV - and cool knowing you were there, Morgan!
    And don't kill me, but I think Crystal's the better singer. She will have a long and great career.

  2. I collect coffee cups and will pick one up if it's unusual. I also like to get magnets when I visit someplace. Once in a while I'll get something a bit more practical, like the toothpick holder when we visited the little brown church in the vale.

  3. I'm with Diane. Crystal is the better singer, but I love Lee and I especially love how much he improved as the contest went on. Hubby and I collect 3-d magnets from wherever we go, as well as t-shirts.

  5. Whoo hoo! Go Lee! I've collected a bunch of Lee souveniers over the past couple of months...glad I could help out with your shirt!! I have the same one at home and the bracelet and a balloon...plus lots of pictures from the parade and celebration and a few posters from around town!

    My big "dream" is to have him come over and autograph my living room wall since he mixed the paint for it!
