Day 238: Gas Station Art


My mom really wanted me to snap a picture of this random Kentucky wall art at a gas station.

She asked me to take pictures of about ten more things–to which I said, you have a camera and it does the same thing as my phone.

This was just one of the gas stations we stopped at on our way to Illinois for our road trip.


{Edit: My mother saw my blog and wants me to be more accurate :P
This is wall art featuring the Father of Blue Grass, Bill Monroe. This is not random, but close to his hometown in Ohio County, Kentucky. *eye roll*}

Day 237: Road Trip


Part of the December Adventivities.

Headed to B’s Christmas Pops program. It was a super long drive, made longer by cramps from sitting in one position all day.

However, we were off in high spirits of caroling, coffee and spotting Christmas symbols along the road.

Obviously, this is a picture from the beginning of the trip.

After the concert and on the way back to my brother’s house we hit a full grown doe.
I don’t know how our little red bug wasn’t destroyed. Sadly, the doe didn’t survive but we sure got off lucky.

Kit was driving and he did a great job slowing down so we didn’t hit her at 60 MPH. To make the situation worse there was a huge SUV on our tails that nearly rear-ended us and just drove on without even seeing if we were okay.

Exhilarating overnight trip to IL.

Day Seventy-Nine: Antique-ing


This weekend Kit and I were driving to Chattanooga to see the aquarium. I slept for about an hour of the drive, but what I did see was certainly weird. I highly recommend driving some of the highways and avoiding the large city traffic and stressful Interstates.

I’m not even sure if this little shop is open anymore, but the sign just amused me to no end.

Also, it was pouring down rain the entire drive down there. It was dreary and chilly.

Day Sixty-Three: Road Trip Excitment

signs were the only interesting thing

You can’t have spring break without going somewhere. Even if it is as mundane as visiting the city park, you have to tell folks you did something over spring break.

I drove to visit my brother and sister-in-law in Illinois. It was a long long long and did I mention looooonnnng boring drive down the parkway to get there. Sadly, there is nothing to look at because most of the landscape looks the same.

I did, however, pass by the exit for my fiance’s hometown.
Princeton metro *snicker* and home of the Cougars *outright laughter*

It made me happy to see it and lots of other silly towns, counties and creek names. I passed through one county and got part of a song stuck in my head for a few miles.

Yay for roadtrips and a riding in a reliable vehicle for the duration!
