Filled my gas tank 6 times.
Crossed four states.
Slept in three different beds.
Attended one wedding.
Danced with my sorority sisters like it was 2011.
And received quite the educational tour on Richmond, IN.
More, you say? Happy to oblige =)
Spent the night in Chi-town with one of my besties, Gracey. We consumed quite the amount of wine while reading All the Rules: your guide to finding Mr. Right, right now! I learned a lot. Like:
- You shouldn't accept a Friday or Saturday date if they ask on or after Wednesday.
- Regardless of whether you keep up on current events, graduated college, or hold a job...you are a valuable prize to these men (direct quote).
- Don't get frustrated if you always end up doing the chores, it's not worth it to lose your patience!
- And last but not least, remember...even Cinderella had the last word (what???).
I can't even. Just seeing that state's name in bold. Angst. Fingers curling.
But. It was worth it. To walk in to the church late while they were all lining up to proceed down the aisle and see her laugh at me because she knows to expect nothing less then the most jankest behavior, made it all worth it. I got to see some of my wonderful sorority sisters and dance like the good ol' days. Eat, drink and be merry....check, check, check.
Oh, and I met some really amazing Catholic missionaries who also like beer and went to two dive bars. Great wrap up to a good day.
OHIO, INDIANA (Saturday)
Drove, drove, drove. Ran into my ex-boyfriend at a truck stop. Drove, drove, drove. Spent the night with my beautiful grandlittle, took a tour of Richmond, IN and learned all about drop out factories, dairy farming, basketball and good ol' American life in cornfields. More to come on that little sleepover later, because it really deserves its own post.
INDIANA, ILLINOIS, MISSOURAH (Sunday)
Drove, drove, drove. Visited some really great truck stops. Alright. I can't. Just recapping all this driving is making my eyes cross.
Tomorrow, I'll wrap up road trip week here on The Unreal Life with Road Tripperies Awardsies (and hopefully come up with a better name for it by then. Oh and I think I'm co-hosting a link-up? What? Maybe? I don't know. It's in my calendar.). And be sure to stop by later this week....because I'll be announcing a brand new, one-time only link up.
