The sky is falling

Remember when I mentioned that my car was totaled?
Well, it wasn't totaled (thank goodness)...but there was about $4,000 worth of damage.

And now it's story time...

About midway through the reception of my good friend Katherine's wedding a few weeks
ago, I heard my boyfriend and one of my friend's husband's talking about something that
caught my attention.  "What are y'all talking about?" I asked.  I shouldn't have asked.
It was one of those moments where I should have just minded my own business.
I will never learn.

At that point my friend Samantha turns and says, "You might as well tell her.
She's going to find out."  My eyes immediately shift to my boyfriend and I have a
look on my face like "What the heck did y'all do?"  And so he begins to tell me...

Him : "So you know where you parked your car at my place?"
Me: "Yes..."
Him : "Well, you know that building that you parked next to?"
Me : "Yes..."
Him : "Well, uhhh....It, collapsed.  On your car."
Me : "Uh, what?"

I found out that my boyfriend received a call earlier that day while I was at the
hair salon and had told our friends, but never let on to me what had happened.
So, without further ado here are more pictures of what a car looks like with a ton of bricks on it...

The good part is that no one was hurt - except my poor car of course.
And she is looking better than ever these days! Now if I could just keep the pollen off of her :)

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!  Are y'all as ready for the weekend as I am?
Since the weather is getting nicer, do y'all have any fun outdoor plans this weekend?


  1. such good photography :)

  2. What a bummer about the car! But at least it is lookin good now. We have a family day planned cuz the weather here is France is incredible!!

  3. Wow. I can not believe that happened. It's one of my worst fears - coming home to a destroyed car especially something landing on it!
