Never Forget

I will never forget.  It was September 12th for me… we were living in Australia at the time.  The events of September 11th, 2001 went down all while we were fast asleep.  I woke up that morning, went downstairs, signed onto AOL (naturally), and the image of two burning towers popped right up.  It looked like a scene from a new movie… I couldn’t believe my eyes.  This can’t be real.  My Dad was walking down the stairs and I ran to him and told him what happened.  We were in shock.

My sisters and I still had to go to school that day.  We were the only Americans at our school.  I felt so sad and alone.  I remember wishing that I was back in America with my fellow Americans… going through it together.  United.

I was glued to the TV and the news.  Mourning for my country.  Praying that they would find survivors.  Listening to the stories of strangers helping strangers and of our real life heroes.  In that moment… we were all American.  We were all apart of one race… the human race.  I was proud of our country.  I was proud to be American.  And I am still proud to be American.

I was going through pictures and I can’t even bring myself to put them on here… so sad.  Too sad.

I just want to remind us all to always choose love and not hate…


Love you all! xo


Wedding Wednesday

The Milly and Grace Girls have been so busy this week!  We apologize for not being on top of our game. I had a few extra minutes today, so I decided whip up a Wedding Wednesday! I am in no way as good as my very talented/wedding obsessed little sister… so instead of bringing you an inspiration board, I decided to put together some of my favorite celebrity wedding dresses!

Next time I take over Wedding Wednesday, I am going to do the WORST celebrity wedding dresses!! That will be fun.

Same Page Monday

It’s Monday..

1.  Kate Middleton has another Royal bun in the oven!  Will & Kate are expecting baby number 2!  She is not far along but they had to announce because she had a to cancel public appearances due to the bad morning sickness she gets from pregnancy. :( Hope she feels better!  Love them!  (I hope it’s a girl!)

Will, Kate and George

2.   I re-watched Legend of The Fall this weekend.  Seriously kills me every time.  My heart feels like its being ripped out.  Brad really gave an incredible performance.   Love that movie.   Caroline, you need to watch it!!  (You also need to watch Strictly Ballroom.)  She keeps asking me about movies to watch on Netflix… it is so overwhelming when you get on there… I could spend hours scrolling through!  I’ll try to gather my favorites and must watches for you!   Expect a post on that… soonish.


3.  Haven’t had dates the last two days.  I feel all out of whack.  I need my dates!!  (Refer down to the previous post to read more about my predicament..) See, I really am bringing you up to date and on the SAME PAGE with all really important stuff.

4. The Ravens finally terminated Ray Rice after video surfaced of the assault… where he knocks out his wife and drags her out of the elevator.  I mean, C’MON MAN!!!  He should be banned for life from the NFL but I am sure the Raiders will take him.  Too soon for a joke?  (Sorry, Turner Family.)

5.  Went to the dentist this morning.  No cavities.  I feel really good about myself.

6.  I love Jimmy Fallon!  Here’s a clip of him and Adam Levine singing impressions… Adam blew me away!  Who knew!?

7.  Caroline came and visited me Sunday morning for a little Sunday Funday!  She has been so busy with school.  It was just so cute that my little sister came to see me!!! I just love having her back!!  It was amazing.  We didn’t take a pic or a selfie or an Instagram or make a blog post out of it.  Crazy.

8.  I feel like I should leave you with something inspirational… something to ponder about…



Oooooohhhh…. Kinda scary to think about?!?!  Ok, think about it.

Happy Monday!
