I'm baaaaaack..............

17 hours in the car.

Four bathroom breaks.

One stop at an outlet mall.

Two gas fill-ups.

One tall, non-fat, sugar free vanilla latte from Starbucks.

Four traffic jams (including one two-hour stretch to go 16 miles).

One run-in with a cop avoided.

Two thunderstorms.

Hours of non-stop fun singing along to Supertramp and Lisa Loeb.

Three meals out (including one amazing restaurant).

One pitcher of mojitos and one pitcher of sangria.

An outing to an improv comedy club.

Quality time watching Bridezilla.

One amazing hour in Ikea.

A beautiful, handcrafted necklace at a street fair.

And a chance to see my amazing sister, b-i-l and baby-in-progress.


So much to say about the sojourn to Hot-lanta. I'll try to de-brief after work today but I am in rough shape and may need a nappy-nap.

We must have passed each other on the road this weekend. I live in the South, and drove to Ohio for a wedding. I gotta say, I got sick of my music REAL quick! I was on the phone telling a friend how board I was and how I would rather ride in silence than hear the Avril Lavigne girlfriend song again. So my friend, feeling my pain, told me to go rent some trashy audio books. Awesome idea! The ride was so much better. Even the traffic jams in Atlanta... on a SUNDAY weren't so bad afterall.
