product endorsement

I have discovered a new coffee creamer that is YUMMERS. It's International Delight white chocolate mudslide, and it is delicious! It's the closest thing I've tasted to my all-time favorite Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha. If you do decide to try this new creamer, try using some of it along with some French vanilla creamer. Coffee heaven, that's what it is.
Side note: I discovered this creamer in our kitchen at work. There were only a few little individual containers of it. I went online to try to find a link to use for this blog post, and I came across someone's review of the "limited edition" creamer...and their post was dated 12/2007. How old was that creamer I ingested this morning??? Yikes.

I usually forget, but today I remember.

As the years pass by, remembering September 11, 2001 becomes more & more faint. However, each time this date comes around, I remember. I remember walking to class at Faulkner University, when Amy Slauson (Newsom) and Jan Ellis (Lowery) greeted me in the lobby and told me that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. "Ok..." I thought. It was just a freak accident, right? I mean, no one was hurt, right? I walked into class & found a different story. The teacher, Sam Wallace, updated us. I remember being confused. Frightened. Angry. Sad. It was a very emotional day for me as the reality of the events unfolded. Classes were cancelled. I didn't know what I was supposed to do, so I walked back to my apartment on campus & called my dad on the way. He didn't really know what to say either. I watched the news footage & it slowly sank in what was happening. We were being attacked. Attacked? Why would anyone attack the U.S.A.? Doesn't everyone love America? Who doesn't appreciate freedom, democracy, patriotism? Of course, the answer to that question was obvious, but those thoughts still flooded my brain. The unity, patriotism, fear of God, and overall sense of camaraderie was evident in our country in the days & weeks that followed. That fervor has, as usual, faded since then. But this morning, as I listened to Rick & Bubba replay clips from their show on that fateful morning, I remembered. I felt the emotions all over again. And I am glad that I can still feel it.

home deco updates

So I finally finished this project!! Here are some pics. And I also realized that many of you haven't seen our house since we redecorated after the tornado, so I'm posting a couple of other pics too.

{after the tornado, we had to replace our rug & throw pillows. and I bought a coffee table as a bonus. :-)}

{we recently inherited Baron's mom's old bedroom furniture, and we didn't need the mirrors in our room so I put them on the mantle}

{I did this painting a couple of months ago & I'm still not sure if I like it. obviously it doesn't bother me too much since it's still hanging in the kitchen. :-)}
