I Swear, People Don't Want Me to Have Nice Things...

After a near death experience a car was about 6 inches from hitting my bumper going 70 mph,  I decided people don't want me to have nice things. The reasoning behind this theory?  Said crazy driver was in a ghetto P.O.S. car (did I mention, it was yellow). No less that 5 minutes down the road, I saw a Jeep almost flip because of people driving like maniacs.

After years of extensive research watching idiots on the road, I have come up with this highly scientific list of drivers:

1. Grandmas: You know the type, the ones who go 10 miles under the speed limit and come to complete stops before turning. The type that you often find yourself honking your horn at and speeding around.  These drivers are typically older and drive a Cadillac/Buick or similar boat.

2. Brown Nosers: The drivers who drive exactly the speed limit (maybe even one mph under the speed limit), promptly stop behind the white line on YELLOW lights, and who never think of getting in the fast lane unless they repent afterwards.  These drivers can typically be found in a Focus, Cavalier, or Silverado.

3.  Daredevils: If you are a daredevil, you often find yourself going several mph over the speed limit, driving with your knees while you apply makeup/eat dinner/paint your fingernails, and get angry when people mess up your cruise control. Daredevils own cars like Mustangs, Chargers, or Corvettes. 

4. Ticking Time Bombs: Drivers who suck at merging, cut people off, come close to causing wrecks on a daily basis, and who change lanes 4 at a time. These drivers are typically in P.O.S. cars, for obvious reasons. 

I think I fall into the Daredevil category. What about you?

Also, if you're interested in swapping for the month of January, please let me know ASAP!

I'm so glad this week is over! Can I get an amen?

It might possibly have been the longest week of my entire life. I actually sat at my desk and cried the other day--I kid you not. 

But, there are a few things that helped me survive this week:

Knowing that Jacob will be here next Thursday!!

My beautiful niece

And you guys! I've said it before and I'll say it again--the blogging community is amazing. 
Speaking of amazing, if you haven't entered Janna's giveaway yet, you better jump on it because today is the last day!

Awkward and Awesome Thursday

I know it's been a long time since I blogged, but I have a very good excuse (see Awesomes)!


Being cut off on the highway by a truck that, according to the back door, was carrying Inmates.

Breaking out in hives

Sweater onesies. Hello 80s!


Cassie: "I feel like a cow."
Andrew: "Technically, you feel like a heifer since you haven't had Zoe yet."
Cassie: "Well regardless, you're fixing to be a steer."
I love that even at 9 months pregnant, she's still quick witted! haha

Which brings me to my next point...
my BEAUTIFUL niece, Zoe Christine, was born last Friday. After 19 hours in labor and Zoe blatantly refusing to turn for the doctors, they decided to do a C-section. Although it seemed like it took forever, it was a pretty quick procedure and mommy and baby (and Andrew) did great. She was born on 12/7/12 at 7:42 p.m., weighing in at 7lbs 7oz and 20 1/2 inches long. 
Ironic considering Andrew's lucky number has always been 7.

I was clearly exhausted from the wait, but was SO excited to finally hold this little bundle of joy in my arms.

Andrew sent me this picture with the subtitle: "First hairbow of many." We trained him well!

Gosh, I could stare at her all day...
