Windy Saturday

It's 8 on a Saturday night, and I just got up from a nap! Haha, yes I know this was a bad idea. But I am still sitting here trying to keep my eyes open. I could honestly go to bed right now, but that would mean I would have gone to bed at 5:30 pm. I am not 89, I refuse to allow myself to this! But apparently my body was exhausted, and I was not going to say no to that!

So last night we had a crazy windy night. I don't know if it was a wind storm. But it was nuts! I was gripping the wheel on my Suv on the highway at 65. It was at least 35 mph winds. I wish I could have gotten a picture of this, but we saw blue lightning! Yes, blue! I have never seen anything like it in my life. It wasn't lightning bolt lightning, but light up the entire sky lightning. So imaging the whole sky lighting up blue. I t was awesome!! But sadly, I was driving so I couldn't get a picture. I tried to find one online, but there was nothing similar to what we saw! Our power ended up going out about 5x in the middle of the night. (Hence why I needed a nap!)

And at about 3, I got woken up by this weird noise and our room lit up like a light bulb. This is with black out shades on our window. I thought maybe I dreamt it, so I laid there and it happened again and I woke Antonio up. The noise was SO loud and sounded like an elecrtic chair or something. Antonio's first thoughts-a giant robot is walking down the street. Yes, hunny I am sure that is what is happening! My first thought-rapture, we are going to die! Then we looked out the window and saw a giant spark on the phone lines, accompanied by that obnoxiously loud noise. I honestly don't know how anyone could have slept through it. And then all the power went out. Even the neighborhood across the street went out and the street lights. Talk about eery, and creepy. It felt like a scene from a movie! We tried figuring out why it was doing that. Maybe a tree fell on it? No. Was the wind blowing something on it and frying it? No. A power line had snapped and was dangling down and when the wind would die down it would end up dropping and right beneath was a pond. So the line would hit the water and make that noise! This went on every 10-30 min for hours. Until the power company finally turned it off. Luckily we had power though! But man, we were terrified, might have been one of the scariest moments until we knew what it was that I have ever been through!

The wind and cold continued through the day! I guess winter isn't ready to give up without a fight! I got up and met up with my friend Lauren for coffee at starbucks to chat for a little about an hour. And then I met up with my friend Jen and we went on the hunt for swimsuits. As most of you know, this is my favoriteeee thing. NOT. After going to target, and searching every store in the mall, we both only found 1 suit. Tragic, I know. She found hers at Forever 21, and I found mine at Target. This is the one I got. Hard to see but there are little white beads in the flowers.

So after we raided the mall, which is always full of interesting clothes, and people, and of course it's packed because of the weather and free pretzel day at Annie's, we came back to my apt and parted ways. I then proceeded to fall face first into my pillow and pass out in about 2 minutes. And now I am writing this, and the hubs will be home in a few minutes.

His friend is coming over, and we are headed to Walmart to find a board/card game or some sorts to play for the evening. Accompanied by some wine and snacks! Woo, I like the snacks part! I just wish I wasn't still half asleep. This may be interesting to try to play a game with half my brain working! Oh well, just blame it on the wine! :)

Hope you had a wonderful Saturday!

-Did you get hit by the storm?
-Did you do anything fun today?

Wow, I've never heard of blue lightning! I would have been scared too!

Very cute swimsuit-blue is my favorite color and I think it goes especially well with dark hair.
