Good morning, Pineapple fans! Well, it’s been a long and busy morning so far. I dropped the guys off this morning before the sun was awake, and they are heading off to Tennessee. Today they have a meeting in Clarksville, so they aren’t letting any grass grow under their feet. Tomorrow it’s off to Nashville for a fun (and stressful!) two days of production. It’s going to be a quiet week without them here, but Jake and I will muddle through. I see lots of foosball in our near futures, unless, of course, we get hit by the “storm of the century” that the local meteorologists are predicting.
Living in Oklahoma, we don’t see a tremendous amount of snow. Plenty of ice, yes, and some snow, but not nearly as much as our neighbors to the north. But this time they’re calling for 12 inches TOMORROW. That will definitely be a sight to see for us Okies; I’m not quite sure I believe it. Nevertheless, I will be stocking up on firewood, candles and groceries tonight, just in case. With my luck, it actually will hit if I’m not prepared. Murphy’s Law and all that. The last time we had our big ice storm in 2007, we lost power for several days and were completely unprepared. My husband ended up finding some stale hamburger buns and stuck birthday candles in them. It was plenty of light to play board games by! But this time he’s decided we might need something a little more substantial. Like some firewood. And I just received news that a) Green Country is under a Breaking Weather Alert and b) Walmart is crazy. Wonderful.
Well, it’s time…for the sneak peek of the first new Nelson Nissan commercial! Remember our crazy production days from a few weeks ago? The ones with lots of actors, multiple locations, and snow?! Well, the first spot is ready to be released, and I must say (even though I may be a bit biased) that it’s AMAZING. Seriously. Barlow outdid himself on this one. You just get a warm, fuzzy feeling when you watch it! Let us know what you think! And since my embedding feature has decided to quit working, please click HERE to watch! You won’t be sorry. More to come soon!
If you know Barlow at all, you know that he is a very caring, sensitive person. He always does his best to help others, and has worked hard to ingrain in all of us the urge to do the same. The Pineapple People make it a point to perform random acts of kindness, and to reach out to those in need. We make it a point not to judge others by their looks, race, religion, creed, or bank account. And he recently showed us, “everyone has a story.” He sent us this video to prove that fact. I have watched American Idol for several years, but haven’t watched this season. And since I missed this special audition and touching story, I’m glad that Barlow shared it with us. Please click HERE to watch….be touched, and be inspired. Your life can change in an instant. Live each day to the fullest. God gave it to you for a reason.

Well, I’m off to tackle my Monday chores. If you’re in Oklahoma, get ready for the winter blast. If you’re not, you’re lucky, but that means you’ve probably already been hit by a ton of snow this year. I suppose it’s our turn. Be careful out there, and we’ll talk tomorrow. And if you have to go to Walmart (like me), I’m sorry.
