a weekend of rememberance.

I don't have much for you this Monday morning friends. I had a great weekend overall but I'm feeling a bit drained from such an obviously emotional day yesterday. I couldn't tear myself away from the coverage of 9/11 and all the heartbreaking  yet powerful memorials that were happening in New York City, Shanksville, and Washington D.C.
Prior to Sunday however, Guy and I did have a nice weekend filled with going to a movie, watching Badger football, and a little fall shopping.

We saw Contagion Friday night which was pretty good. I didn't have high expectations honestly so I was pleased with the movie. I didn't realized until I watched it that the cast was almost the exact cast of The Talented Mr. Ripley.
Saturday we watched my Badgers win against Oregon State and then I ran a few errands. I stocked up on fun fall tops that will soon my staples in my wardrobe.

But the most important part of the weekend was clearly remembering 9.11.01 and all those that lost their lives and the brave men & women that did everything they could to mimimize the loss on that day.
Besides the morning memorials, the most riveting documentary I watched was '9/11: 10 Years Later' that was aired Sunday night on CBS. It was footage from the French documentarians that were following one Fire House and just happened to find themselves in the middle of the attack. Their footage is the most haunting thing I've ever seen.

Wishing everyone a wonderful, peaceful start to their week.

Ohmygosh, that documentary made my bawl! I had never seen something solely from the firefighter's POV. My boyfriend was actually at his station on duty last night, watching it & we were both on the phone crying, haha. And I love those shirts!! Where did you find such pretty prints?

Ooh. Ooh. Where are the shirts from? So fun! I need some new shirts, but I don't want to spend a lot...

I'm with you Morgan...yesterday took the wind out of my sails, but it should have. It was an excellent, albeit devastating, reminder.

I recorded that CBS program but haven't had a chance to watch it yet. I've heard good things about it, though.

Love all your prints you got for fall, way to stock up early!

Thanks for swinging over to my blog and leaving your sweet comments. :)
