Week In Review: Ashley

Oh my gosh you guys…happy Monday! We didn’t do our WIR post last week – So, I feel like I have TONS to share. I feel like SO much has happened in the span of two weeks. However, I also feel like I am overwhelmed by how much I have to share that this may end up being short and sweet. ha!

Sharing pictures in no particular order…

Alright alright…where to begin? Let’s see, so why didn’t we do our WIR post last week? Well, the shooting tragedy that happened Sunday night Β in Las Vegas was on our minds. We had to address that, and it just felt like carrying on with life as usual on the blog that day was not right.

What did I do that weekend? I got to spend Saturday night and all day Sunday with my family in a cabin that my parents rented. We did lots of outdoor activities including spending some time floating around on a pontoon boat. It was a blast…well except the no cell phone signal part – I survived though. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

Then, we (those of us on the gulf coast) started preparing for the possibility of being hit by a hurricane. Yup. You heard right .. ANOTHER hurricane.

Really that whole week was a whirlwind…and went by SO quickly. Cooper was on Fall Break from school on Thursday and Friday. Cruising the coast was also happening along the coast…so traffic was insane. What’s cruising the coast? It’s an annual week-long car show that happens down here. Thousands of people hop in their fancy vintage cars and head to the MS Coast. There are different events hosted, but mostly people literally park and/or cruise along – showing off their hard work. πŸ™‚ This year’s Crusin’ was rudely and abruptly interrupted by a very fast-moving Hurricane Nate. We were originally expecting to be hit early Sunday morning. However, on Saturday morning Nate decided he was ready to make landfall and started moving with unprecedented speed toward us. I’d gone Thursday night to buy essentials and prepare, but Saturday morning I woke up in a panic when I realized I’d forgotten the ICE! I did a whole story time about it on our Snapchat (RAtheMOMachine)…and I posted a little clip on our IG (rageagainstthemomachine)… so go check that out when you get a chance. πŸ˜‰

After we got our ice…we spent all Saturday morning enjoying the sunshine before Nate made landfall. Once we got home around one, I turned on the weather channel and we hunkered down for the day. Cooper was all wrapped up in the Hurricane Nate Watch.

I am incredibly thankful that this storm was only a Category 1, and that we didn’t suffer much damage – the real only inconvenience was that we seemed to be some of the very last people to get power back late Sunday night. πŸ™

Anddd that’s what has been going on…what were you guys up to???
