Things I’m Loving These Days

SO Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk Creamer


I love all things coconut and so when I saw this at Publix the other day, I had to try it. At first I thought coconut flavor in my coffee would be a little icky, but I was wrong. I. Loved. It. This product is rich, sweet and creamier than milk. I’ll be honest and tell you I could turn the carton up and gulp this stuff down straight. It’s THAT good.

OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo


Are you starting to see a theme here? Like I said, I love all things coconut and apparently shampoo is no exception. This stuff smells so good!

Recent Antique Mall finds

The antique mall that sits right at the entrance to our subdivision that my hubby and I like to check out every now and then had a huge sale recently. All their costume jewelry was 75% off. I could have gone wild but restrained myself. I got these two peacock pins for my sweet mother-in-law because she loves things like this and ever since I’ve known her she’s worn sparkly brooches. I told her when my eye spotted these, they had her name written all over them. She likes peacocks. No, they’re not particularly old but they sure are colorful and pretty.




My mother-in-law also loves butterflies and so when I asked the lady at the antique store if she had any butterfly pins, she actually told me that she has a man who routinely comes in and wipes her out of all her butterflies. His wife collects them and pins them on, of all things, shower curtains. Now that’s unusual and something I would have never thought to do.  She also told me the teenage girls are coming in to buy the brooches and that they like to pin them on their backpacks.

I bought this little blue pin just because the color kept jumping out at me. I’m sure I’ll find a place for it on a winter sweater.


Glen Campbell CDs

My sister was so thoughtful in showing her love to her baby sister. She ordered these for me right after Glen Campbell’s death. And how could I not love them!IMG_6336

All Saints movie

I saw this movie two days ago at a private showing for the Episcopal diocese of Tennessee, (made possible by the generosity of an anonymous donor). I can’t stop thinking about it and its real life characters. It’s based on a true story and was filmed right here in Smyrna TN (about 20 miles southeast of Nashville) at the actual church where the story takes place. It’s an endearing story about refugees and saving a dying church that will warm your heart. It will make you laugh and make you cry. It’s not about religion but all about love, hope and faith. There’s also a book and I can’t wait to read it!
