the beginning of forever...

i have been changed for good. story to follow...



the few, the proud, the followers

for all of you still faithfully following, here is a GOLD STAR. I have had design woe after design woe. But I believe there is light at the end of the tunnel. I am nearing the end of my journey. Hang with me! I will make it worth your while. And that's a promise.



                 I knelt to pray but not for long,
                 I had too much to do.
                 I had to hurry and get to work
                 For bills would soon be due.
                 So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
                 And jumped up off my knees.
                 My Christian duty was now done
                 My soul could rest at ease.
                 All day long I had no time
                 To spread a word of cheer.
                 No time to speak of Christ to friends,
                 They'd laugh at me I'd fear.
                 No time, no time, too much to do,
                 That was my constant cry,
                 No time to give to souls in need
                 But at last the time, the time to die.
                 I went before the Lord,
                 I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
                 For in his hands God held a book;
                 It was the book of life.
                 God looked into his book and said
                 "Your name I cannot find.
                 I once was going to write it down...
                 But never found the time"

back from NYC! don't worry. i'll tell ya the whole story.


my recent obsessions

yes. i have been MIA for a while. but, I AM BACK. with a renewed zeal and fervor for blogging. if you have any specific topics you want me to cover, or any ideas for things you would like to read about, please do not hesitate to let me know! i'm all ears.

the following are my latest craves, loves, and desires. enjoy!

did someone say juliska??? i sure did! this charming china has stolen my heart. check out their website :http://www.juliska.com/ for some mouth watering fun. i want it all! in every color.

extra's new dessert gum is well, A DESSERT WRAPPED UP IN A STICK OF GUM! delish. it's a must try. my personal fave is key lime pie.

have you been wanting to smell delightfully yummy? i have the perfume for you. viva la juicy is the perfect choice, and is sure to please not only yourself, but everyone around you.

need to add a little rough and tough to your wardrobe? get a pair of combat boots! i am a proud owner of these fierce steve madden boots. you should get some too.

i am into all things high waisted this season. if you don't own a pair of high waisted pants, you need to.

i am getting older and my need for professional clothing is becoming greater. zara is a great place to find work appropriate clothes that have been juxtaposed with the latest fashion trends. too bad they don't have one in alabama.

want celebrity style waves? i have FINALLY found the answer. get yourself a clampless iron. i promise it will do the trick. if you don't want to spend a lot of money, go to ulta and get their clampless wand. 

thirsty??? me too! i am hooked on powerade zero. great thirst quencher with zero cals. who doesn't want that?

one of my favorite things about fall is football. its a staple. and yes, i love the TIDE.

it's good to be back. i think i'll stay awhile. hope to hear from you!

soli deo gloria.

i LOVE hairspray. the show that is. come to think of it, i am pretty obsessed with the product as well (gotta keep the hair in place, people)! last night, i went to see my beautiful friend, jennifer, in tuscaloosa's production of hairspray. IT WAS FABULOUS. i will be singing all of the songs now for a few weeks. the boyfriend is super excited about that. ; )

jennifer was tammy. she did an outstanding job. i felt like a proud mother!

the girls

and my sweet baby

 my FAVE song from hairspray is "good morning baltimore", but since i've already posted it, i will leave you with my second love.
