So...it definitely got a little chilly!
An attempt for a quick snapshot with my little buddy before the game. I quickly learned that getting him still that long was NOT going to happen.
This afternoon, my mom, MSKS, and I hosted a shower for my dear friend Alexa, who, as you may recall, is getting married in just a few weeks! There was a great turn out at the shower and Alexa got some fabulous gifts (isn't that what's really most important?) :)
me and the pretty bride-to-be!
me and mom
me and MSKS
me and 2 of my best
I can't wait for Alexa's big day in December!
YAY FOR FUN WEEKENDS! :)

Preciousness. There are few things about this picture that make me smile:
1. his mouth wide open
2. his rain boots, which he calls his "waterproof boots"
3. camo pants
4. MSU jersey--not because he's wearing it, but because he's wearing it with the WP boots AND the camo pants.
I also went to 2 of my favorite places yesterday: Ann Taylor Loft and Target. :) Mandy and I drove to Tuscaloosa after church yesterday and despite the nasty weather, we had a great shopping trip! (I also might add that I got some really cute new clothes too!). To top off the afternoon, we stopped off at TCBY in Tuscaloosa, where I devoured a chocolate/oreo shiver. YUM! Perhaps you recall what happened to Starkville's TCBY a few years ago (I'm still not over it. Can you tell??). It was such a treat to have some yesterday, but it made me realize just how very much I miss having one close to me!
Moving on..there are a couple of items that have recently been added to my "favorites" list. I thought I'd share them with you in hopes that you will enjoy them as I have:
1. LASH BLAST MASCARABesides the fact that I think Drew Barrymore is super cute, this mascara really IS great. It's no secret that I'm a Bobbi Brown snob with most of my make up products (In fact, I'm pretty confident that if she and I were to ever meet, she would want to be my friend). However, buying less expensive mascara has never really bothered me. I've tried several different kinds, but this is my favorite so far. I don't have very long eyelashes, so I'm always trying to find a mascara that lengthens them. L.B. may just be the winner! The first time I looked in the mirror after applying it, I said to myself, "Wow, LT...your eyelashes look fabulous!" It's true.
2. PAPERMATE FLAIR PENS
Don't you love it when you find a pen that writes really well? Call me a nerd if you'd like, but I guarantee that most of you out there have a favorite pen--the one you HATE to lose! Well, I've found one that tops them all. These pens write like pens, but they look "juicy" like markers. I can't explain it. You just have to try them. I have approximately 15 (all different colors) on my desk at school. I'm thinking of labeling them so no one borrows one and "accidentally" forgets to return it. I take them very seriously.
AND FINALLY (drumroll please)-
In case you haven't heard, Sugarland is releasing a Christmas album!!!! I absolutely can't wait! I can't remember the last time I went out and bought a CD. I usually just pick and choose songs I like and then download them on ITunes. Not this time though! The release date is October 13, and I plan on buying one that afternoon. In fact, I may go ahead and start listening to it then too! To me, there's nothing better than Christmas music. I also think Jennifer Nettles is the most fabulous of all, so I can only imagine her singing Christmas music. I totally can't wait!
....thanks for listening! LT

I ran into one of my most favorite people in the world, Kelli (Darnell) McGuffee. We were KDs together in college. It's ridiculous how long it's been since we've seen each other! Fortunately, she and her husband live in Gulfport, where, as you may recall, Heather and Trey now live. No more excuses for not hanging out, Kelli!
Me and Kelli D.
And don't forget the Sudduth group! HEGS and I made our way to the "Sudduth Tailgate" to visit some of our people. Good times!
Bambi, Angie, me, HEGS, Lynn, Monica, and Sophelia.
