Car Troubles and more...

Soooo....
I had just merged onto the freeway en route to get my hair done when my car made a funny noise and straight died in the fast lane!! I pressed the gas petal and nothing would happen so I merged onto the side of the freeway. I always get oil changes and take pretty good care of my car so I had no idea what the frick was wrong!! My dad came and he drove the car off to the exit and he said it was fine to him... Then I started driving it towards his house since I was already too late for my hair appointment and the car almost died twice on the way and was seriously struggling to go. My bf drove it to my dads "car guy" and a few hours later and $200 we went and picked it up. Soon as we got home the car started doing the same thing and the engine was violently shaking. Back to the auto shop we went. Thankfully I made it to go with my friend Kim to her ultrasound which was 3d and saw the baby for the first time. Very cool to see how technology is these days! 

Then we went to a surprise party for my friend Kristen which took my mind off the car and the roots in my hair. Then got the call that my car wouldn't be ready until Monday. Enter more anger. 


Sunday was okay... we hit up Costco in the POURING rain. Then had lunch, napped with Frap, then grocery shopped. It seriously rained the WHOLE day. Not normal for us. I skyped with my sis and the kids which was really nice to end my day with.



Today was another day in the academy, but it was a somewhat stressful day and my head hurts. 
Our really good friends B&B are at the hospital right now about to have a baby so that's exciting! That's about it for now... I think this pig would be a perfect friend for Frappy :)

What a bummer about your car. I would have freaked out if mine died in the fast lane!! And how nice of your dad to come to the rescue. I hope it's all fixed up soon!

And I never, ever, ever thought I would say a pig was cute. But, that one is!

I love that you are so close with your sisters kids. I have two twin sisters, 2 years younger than me, and they help me out and are super close to my two kids. Aunties are the best!
