did you feel that?


Well, this is something I never thought I would be able to say. Certainly not living in Florida for most of my life. but you guys, I survived my first earthquake.


It was terrifying & it was traumatic. No, no it wasn’t. I didn’t even know what happened until hours later. But it happened. & I’m here to tell you about it. I know, thank god.
Around 4pm yesterday afternoon, I was sitting at my desk on the 5th floor of my lovely little work building when I looked down at something on my shirt (probably baby crap) when I noticed that my body was swaying from side to side. I honestly thought that a. I had hit my chair on my desk and was shaking from that or b. I was dizzy, which happens to me quite a bit. The swaying stopped after maybe 30 seconds so I decided to test out the ‘desk chair’ theory. I bumped my chair on my desk to recreate the swaying & spoiler alert: nothing happened. So I chalked it up to being dizzy & moved on with my life.
Flash forward to 8pm last night, I put the babe to bed and cozied up on the couch with my iPad & vodka sleepy time tea. I checked out the news and saw that there was an unusual earthquake in Cuba around 4pm that day and that it was felt all the way up to South Florida. ‘Hmm, that’s weird. Better not mention what I felt today to anyone else because they will think I am bat shit crazy’ is pretty much what was going through my head since they didn’t mention anything about Orlando.
Since Billy was working last night, he didn’t even get to hear about my ridiculous, probably made up in my head story about the Orlando Earthquake of ’14. So when we woke up this morning, I bombarded him with my theories. He gave me the good ole ‘yeah, babe. I’m sure you’re right. You’re really pretty too.’ & we went on with our day.
Here’s where things start to get really good. I get to work this morning and tell my dear friend Heather my story. She thought I was insane and we walked to our 9:30am meeting together. In our meeting, someone heard me make a joke about ‘surviving an earthquake’ and one by one everyone in the room started saying they felt it! They all thought they were just dizzy or drunk! Come to find out, people were actually reporting that they felt it all over Orlando!

Thank god I survived you guys. Could you imagine me not being around to tell this riveting story?!  
I know I promised to be back with something spectacular. But this is all I’ve got for today. It’s Friday and my brain is barley working at half capacity.
I do have an exciting announcement to make though. Starting next week, I will be starting a new series on the blog called 'A day in the life'. I will be documenting a day out of my week in mostly pictures of what a typical day looks like for us. I thought it would be a fun way to spice things up around here. Right now, it is looking like I will be documenting on Tuesdays and posting on Wednesdays. if you have your own blog and would like to join in, I would love to have you! Let me know in the comments if you plan to join. If there is enough interest, I will start a link up!

Have a great weekend!
