So, I am fast forwarding to the present and am currently sizzling in Miami. The heat here is really unbelievable. Hard to imagine that on Tuesday morning, I was wearing a thick sweater and pants with socks in Newport! I will back-track my trip home later today, but didn't want to disappear. My ride home was L O N G to say the least and my only complaint, other than not too many Chick-Fil-A's along the route is that the drivers out there are HORRENDOUS! What ever happened to the cardinal driving rule "SLOWER TRAFFIC TO THE RIGHT"???????? No matter which state you are in, all of the sudden the traffic slows down and, inevitably, it is always some stubborn old man put putting along in the left lane causing all sorts of problems. I was wishing I had a dry erase board to write my comments and hold up as I drove by. MOVE TO THE RIGHT, YOUR BLINKER HAS BEEN ON FOR 10 MILES, or YOU NEED YOUR LICENSE REVOKED! (these are samples of my rants)
My wonderful bff Onstar, took me on a different path home, almost completely avoiding I-95, so I saved some $$ on tolls and saw some beautiful scenery. I left Saturday morning at 6:28am from Newport and drove through Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia and ending up at Meg's in Statesville, North Carolina. I pulled into her driveway at 6:29pm, almost exactly 12 hours later. Pretty good time and no tickets! I will post some pics later today.
Hope everyone is still having a fabulous summer, I am determined to continue to make mine as fabulous as possible! xoxo
p.s. Is this pink too bright?
