Today's Find

I hit the jackpot! Since I have big feet (size eleven and a bit wide) and bad heels finding shoes is a hassle for me. My doctor has instructed me to stick with cross trainers, which is why you'll rarely ever find me in high heels. So today I went out with the hubster to find us each a pair of new sneakers. Low and behold I came across two pairs that I liked and that fit!! I have no idea of the odds of that happening, but I'll say I'm of an age and it has never happened before. While I was still debating on which pair to buy hubby was holding the boxes. I turned around and he was gone. I found him standing by the door with a bag. He bought them both. That's love! Seriously. He didn't make me choose or even ask me to.

How I Spent My Monday Off

 So yesterday my hubby and I spent the day driving up to Vermont. Why? Well to visit Ben and Jerry's. To be honest I slept most of the way up there, but every so often I'd wake up and enjoy the view. We took the factory tour, which was really cool because one of the machines was malfunctioning and we got to see them fix it.

 At the end you get to taste the flavor of the day. We were extra lucky and got to taste a new flavor that isn't even out yet. It's Salted Caramel Brownie. Not being a big fan of caramel I tried it then gave the rest to hubby who really liked it.

I also taste the Late Night Snack, made in honor of Jimmy Fallon. It has potato chips in it. Then we grabbed and ice cream, I got the Coconut Seven Layer Bar and hubs got a chocolate peanut flavor, headed to the flavor graveyard.

It was cool to see all the headstones with epitaphs. They had the dates, and descriptions of flavors. As an author I love  exploring new places that I can possibly use in future books. This time I saw this saying and thought it was a great motto to have.

New Job, New Car, and New Hair.

Okay so there have been a lot of changes around here starting with me going back to work full-time. for the first 5 weeks I was in training from Noon to 8:30pm, which SUCKED! Now I'm doing 4pm to 12:30 am. It's better, but I miss writing full-time. Considering going to 3rd shift at some point later on down the line. So between that and writing I'm going to be super busy. 
Then my car started having some issues, so hubby and I started talking about getting something a little newer.

<--- ---="" car.="" his="" my="" nbsp="" old=""> This is what the hubby wanted. It's a 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye in Citrus Peel. He really, really wanted it. The only problem was my 2 boys are both over six feet tall and I couldn't see squeezing them into the back seat.

So what did we get. A 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan.

 It has lots of room and the back window even go down. So it feels more like an SUV, but there's a lot more storage space. Which is great since I'll have lots of stuff to take with me to Savannah in August for Authors After Dark.
If new job, new car, and getting ready for AAD wasn't enough on my plate I decided it was time for another change. Keep in mind I am like the least photogenic person I know, but here's my hair before.

 This now. Much shorter and colorful. I'm not fully sold on the blond. I think when I go back in four weeks there's going to be another change.

Friday is going to bring around another batch of changes that I've been working on. I'm really excited about them. Wish me luck.
