Detroit Eve!

Well, it's not really eve since I'm leaving for the airport in a few hours but that's not important right now! In a few hours (see 4am), I'll be on my way to the GSO airport to Detroit (by way of Reagan Int'l) for my brother's engagement party weekend! I definitely have my own opinions but this isn't the time to share them- only a time to be happy for my brother and celebrate this next big step he is taking in life! I'm so lucky and happy that we repaired our relationship all those many years ago so I can share in celebrations like this with him and our family.


My older brother, fur-nephew Dr. Dre, and I- Christmas 2011

I originally planned to ride up in the car with my parents (they left earlier this week) but they weren't planning on coming back until a day later than I took off at work and already scheduled meetings for that day.  SO- I found a plane ticket last week so I could work a few extra days and make the $$ (or as T.I. and RiRi say, "chasing that paper" hahaha). I also used my brain and got my parents to take my large amounts of clothing and accessories in the car with them so I only have a few last minute items to take with me on the airplane so hopefully that will make my early flight out/late flight back much smoother than having to deal with luggage!

This has been such a crazy week- I spent last weekend at my parents' house to help my mom out with preparations for this trip (my parents are throwing/hosting this ooc party for my brother and his fiancĂ©e) and to get some additional opinions on my outfit selections for the weekend haha! My dad actually told me the sari I picked out for the party looked "too old" and I need to wear something "young and for a girl" since I am unmarried. Craziness all around, seriously. BUT, now I have a most beautiful outfit picked out for the party! Well, after a crazy weekend in Danville, I've been working a lot this week trying to make sure everything will be OK on the cases I've been working on the past few weeks.  I was so dilirious today after work, I headed to the post office at 5:30 and didn't realize it was closed until I was inside! CLEARLY my mind's been preoccupied with a number of different life issues (both good & stressful life issues haha).

So, now there's my justification for the lack of Playlist Wednesday and Training Thursday! I'm excited to finish out this month strong with my Detroit training and I CANNOT WAIT to share my Month In Review: August post once I am back next week. I have some really exciting news that I am just over the moon just thinking about this big life accomplishment!

In lieu of my Playlist Wednesday and Training Thursday posts, here are some songs I've been obsessing over this week (ok maybe the past few weeks) but hopefully I can make a few updates over the weekend from Detroit!

I am OBSESSED with this song. The End.

I'll be your strawberry bubblegum, if you'll be my blueberry lollipop..

Love me some T.I.- such a beautiful beautiful man and I am also obsessed with this song and his show on VH1 with his hilarious family!


Watch out Detroit &Eminem, I'm coming! 


Hope everyone has a wonderful (and safe) Labor Day Weekend! Enjoy the time off and be sad about the end of summer!
