Landed at the Hampton Inn across from Oxford Casino, and a thunder storm rolled through - it was amazing! 


First, it's awesome to stay across from the Casino at the Hampton Inn in Oxford. I was so excited to stay so close to the Oxford Casino to get ready for our broadcast tomorrow morning.

Got in around 715 at the casino and ordered my favorite salad: the blackened chicken salad. Chicken Breast, Field Greens, Caramelized Onions, Sauteed Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Cheddar-Jack Cheese, Cilantro Lime Dressing



I get to my room (420 - yes, we had a laugh) and it's awesome. Big ol' bed, beautiful bathroom, great view of Oxford, a lounge chair in front of the TV...just perfect.

But then I noticed something...

A whoopie pie and a card! It said:

Lori -

Welcome to the Hampton Inn in Oxford! We are so excited to have you stay with us!! We love your morning show! Great boost of laughter in the morning! Please let us know if we can do anything for you! Welcome home for the night!


Sarah and the Hampton Inn Crew!

How lovely. What a kind gesture and I am so grateful. Ahhhh, time to settle in, and have some dinner...

But wait - is that thunder? Lightening? Yup. Outside was the most incredible thunder storm with the best rainbow ever!

Thank you to Oxford Casino for a great salad (and the rolls too!) and to Sarah and everyone at the Hampton Inn in Oxford for such a warm welcome.
