Catching Up!

Wow, I have seriously been missing in action! I didn't follow a single post that I put in my blog planner except for the giveaway! And I'm sad to say that my birthday is Tuesday, and I still have thirteen things left on my 21 before 21 list! Now that you're caught up on my past couple of links, let me tell you about my week!

First of all, Wednesday I got stuck in a huge traffic jam. There was an accident on the interstate, which had to be shut down. Since our city is almost completely dependent on the interstate, every one panicked, and it literally took me 3 hours to get to work. Thankfully the drive home was only about an hour, but it's usually 10 minutes! It was crazy!
Reppin' my UNCC bumper sticker!
And I have to share the picture from our news site of how they fixed it, because it's so crazy! The accident was a car that flipped over, a gas truck slamming on its brakes, and then a beer truck crashing into the gasoline truck. Therefore spilling gallons and gallons of gas onto the road. So they decided to have a nice little controlled burn:
Yep, it looks like a bomb went off. Boyfriend was evacuated of his apartment less than a mile away!
Then earlier this week, I got the great opportunity to get Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop for free! I've been on Illustrator nonstop this week (hence the new header, and soon to be design). I've been able to help another girl with her blog. It's still a work in progress, but we've gotten some really cute things done so far! Please go check her out! She's one of the sweetest people I've ever met, and it turns out, we only live like 20 minutes from each other. Such a small, small world!

Then I got the sweetest email from Erin at Sweetness Itself! I hope you follow her because she's stinking great. She's one of the most amazing women I've had the chance of getting to know, and I aspire to be like her. Go check out her blog, and seriously stay awhile. Click all the links and really get to know her!

And most excitedly, my grandparents are in town!! They drove 18 hours to get here, but they'll be staying the whole weekend! And this weekend is going to be stinkin' awesome. We've got my sister's baby shower and my birthday party. I cannot wait for both! Hopefully I'll find some time to post some pictures in the next few days, because it's going to be legen-wait for it and I hope you're not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is- dary! Legendary! Yeah guys, I really just got that lame on you.


  1. I am sorry about the traffic. That's awful! But glad that was the extent of your involvement. I've been slacking a lot with my blog lately and am trying to find a balance. Happy early birthday! It's nearly here!!

  2. Wow-wee...That's a controlled fire, eh? Hope you enjoy the baby shower and your birthday. I love baby showers, they are always so much fun!


Thanks for taking your time to comment on my blog. I enjoy and read each one of your sweet comments!
