Two times is one week, my own personal record

I'm sure you all are wandering what my blog post is about, I will tell you. I got pulled over again!! Again!! I literally had pulled out of my apartment and turned onto the main road as I headed to target and look in my rearview mirror and see flashing lights behind me. I wasn't speeding so I had no idea what I was being pulled over for and school's were out today so I wasn't in a school zone. It wasn't until he started walking over to my car that I realized that I didn't have my seat belt on.

This time though the copper was nice, took my info and then just came back to say he wasn't giving me a ticket. Praise the lord! I could have hugged him. I really need to start paying attention more when driving. In all of my 8 years as a driver I've been pulled over three times. The last two all within the week. I blame this on the stress and anxiety I've had the last few days with M being gone and with my exam.

After my speeding ticket, today wasn't too eventful. I got my hair did, laid out by the pool for a bit and then headed off to work at 1:30. Well I show up at a client's house and they tell me sorry were going out of town and forgot to call. Oh well off I headed to run some more errands and now I'm relaxing a bit at home before heading over to a friend's house for our weekend wine and desert nights!

Tomorrow I work 8-2:30 and I am happy to report that as of next saturday I will only be working till noon! Yes my weekends are starting to look up again.

Easter sunday I am going to go to church. This is a big deal for me. Ihaven't been to church in awhile. It was hard to find a catholic church here in NC and the one I found was in Spanish. So I searched and searched online and found a church right by my apartment. I am excited to try it out and figure what better day to start going back to church than easter sunday

After church I will be going to a friend's house to lay out by the pool and hopefully start working on my tan. What are you all doing for easter?

I have also finally started working on my stack of books begging to be read. Even though I have a ton to start, I am always looking for suggestions. Does anyone have any good books they can recommend.


  1. As soon as i read the title to your post i thought "oh gosh, i bet she got pulled over again!" haha.

    I'm glad you didn't get a ticket this time around ♥

  2. I cant beleive it happened again haha you poor girl! Glad you have a fun weekend ahead of wine, girl time and sunbathing though, sounds good to me!

  3. I kinda love that you're tanning on Easter. It makes me smile.

  4. My husband and I are going to the Melting Pot for Easter Dinner! I am so looking forward to it (with some Sangria of course) Happy Easter

  5. You know what? That happened to me once!

    When Buck and I were dating and we both commuted back and forth to be with each other (about 40 minutes drive each way) ... I got pulled over once on the way up-- nasty ticket in a place impossible to speed due to road construction btw--- and THEN on the way home- I got 'clocked by aircraft' and they sent state patrol after me. While he wrote the ticket, I looked in front of me, 2 cars pulled over by 'aircraft', and behind me 3 cars. Seriously?!

    Good news is that it has been over 3 years now, and no tickets since that horrible day. I am sending my since good luck to you.. may we both remain ticket free!

    Enjoy your Easter!!

  11. I also like Jodi Picoult. I have about a million book suggestions, but to stick with the ones that I loved...
    I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak
    The Book Thief also by Zusak
    The Giver by Lois Lowry
    A Thousand Splendid Suns by...can't remember his name but it's awesome!

  12. You need to invest in a radar dector.

  13. You porr thing! Getting pulled over is one of the most stressful things! Once I see flashign lights my heart jumps out of my chest.

    Hope you had fun at church! It's hard finding a new one, we just found one we love:-)

    If you haven't read Ets. Pray. Love do it! Also any books by Jodi Picoult, Jennifer Weiner, or Sophie Kinsella are really good, and good for you for reading!!!

    As far as good books, I love Nicholas Sparks anything. Oh, and though the title may be weird, I LOVED this book: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer. Happy reading!
