Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: 5 for Friday

5 for Friday

4:00 AM


First and foremost I want to take a moment of silence here on the blog.  Once you are done reading this current sentence, take a few moments.

Ok, I wanted to pay my respects since today is 9/11.  I’ve recently been renovating my room as most of you know and I’ve been walking down memory lane.  It just so happens that the other night, I found an old diary from high school.  The first page described 9/11.  I wrote how I heard someone yelling down our halls because her dad worked there and unfortunately did not survive.  I remember sitting in class and everyone being glued to the TV as we watched the news and saw the second plane hit the twin towers.  To think, the week prior I was in NY and in those towers.  Since then they have made it quite beautiful, but there is still an empty place where the towers used to stand.  When you look across the river on my side (NJ side) it still doesn’t look right.  I don’t think it ever will, not just because the towers are no longer there, but because of what happened on that day.  Since it is so vivid in my mind I won’t ever forget it.  Thank you to everyone who helped save lives and helped rebuild after this tragic day and I want to send my condolences to anyone out there reading this who lost someone on this day.  Also, the above pictures were taken by me last year.  You are more than welcome to share them just please credit them back to me, thank you!

My favorite picture from the Valley Shepherd Creamery post on Wednesday.

Recap from Reviews

Oh my goodness, I had so many reviews this week.  On Tuesday I spoke about the #recycleyourperiodpad campaign that I’m part of with Poise.  Click here to read more and receive free samples of their product!  I also talked about my time at Valley Shepherd Creamery which was by far the best time I had in a while, and all I did was eat cheese and take a tour on top of seeing some gorgeous animals.  Yesterday’s post was all about the NJ Lotto!  Take a few minutes to read about NJ Fast play!

BBQ end of summer

So I was invited to an end of summer BBQ tomorrow.  Of course I’m going to go, but it’s so bittersweet for me.  I don’t want summer to be over.  Am I crazy for loving summer and not being excited for fall?  Let’s not forget to mention that I’m not a huge pumpkin spice latte girl.  I know I know, you think I’m joking because who doesn’t like them?!  When it comes to coffee I like regular coffee with milk.  Sometimes I’ll adventure to cappuccino or latte’s but never add anything else.  I like pumpkin spice the flavor but definitely not as much as a lot of girls.  I’m sorry if I disappointed any of you haha.

Die Antwoord

Ok, I know that they’ve been around for quite some time but I seriously fell in love with this band.  After watching Chappie and hearing their music play throughout the whole movie (and watching them in the whole movie) I decided to go to iTunes (yes I legally download my music lol) and buy some songs.  Since then, they’ve been on repeat.  I know they aren't everyone's cup of tea, but I like them.

Getting hair done

I’m getting my hair done tomorrow.  Yay!  I don’t know if I’m changing it, but I might go a little darker.  I’m not sure, I’m staying blonde for a while, but maybe not as blonde as I have been.  I’m not going to lie, I miss being a brunette and red head!

  9. I don't like pumpkin spice either! We had our hottest/driest summer ever where I live, and have had a lot of fires as a result. That's the only reason I'm excited for fall! Typically I'd be crying over an end of summer bbq too :).
