Come on, Irene!

And that, she did. My work closed around 1pm Friday afternoon due to Hurricane Irene making her way up the east coast. We lost power at the house for about an hour Friday evening and then again in the wee hours Saturday morning. This guy was to blame for our power outage…

The tree above fell across the road just a couple houses down from ours. Eeek! We were fortunate, though, to have our power back by noon on Saturday. And surprisingly, these two handled their first hurricane pretty well.

Hurricane = Extra sleepy time!

Since we had to toss a lot of what we had in the fridge due to loss of power (spoiled milk… pee-yew!), we grabbed lunch at Wendy’s and then re-stocked our shelves with a quick grocery trip on Sunday.

My, what a difference a day can make! Sunday was absolutely gorgeous so Shelby and I spent a little bit at the park playing frisbee and then Ryan and I went on our weekly movie date to see The Help. I just finished the book last weekend and was super excited to see the movie (Ryan was even a little excited to see it too Winking smile) , and it did not disappoint.


The book was definitely one of the best I’ve ever read and the movie, although they had to cut some things, was really well done. I thought I’d be able to hold back my tears, but alas they came with a fury. If you haven’t read the book and/or seen the movie, do yourself a favor!

What’s the best movie you’ve seen and/or book you’ve read lately?
