Yesterday was pretty eventful.  It started with work training from 8am to 11am.  Then I came back to the dorm and ate lunch and watched tv.  I was waiting for my cousins, aunt, uncle and grandma to come pick me up.  After their two hour drive from Louisville to Bowing Green, they were finally here!  We went to WKU’s bookstore then ate a late lunch at Rafferty’s.

Next, we were off to the mall to find some sunglasses at Forever 21.  It was a pretty successful trip…here are the glasses I got for Florida:

Pink Sunglasses

After Forever 21, we went to Old Navy, then they closed the stores and made us go into the mall tornado shelter because a tornado touched down a couple of counties away from Bowling Green.  We were in the shelter hall for about an hour and a half.  Pretty uneventful since we just stood there and then it was over.  No tornado, just a lot of rain.

While in the mall, we piled into a tiny photo booth to take some fun pictures of the beginning of my cousin’s spring break.  It was really fun, and the pictures are so cute!



Well, that was my eventful Saturday all wrapped up into a couple of paragraphs!

I am working on decorating another tank top so I can wear it in Florida later this week.  I am also starting to pack and making my to do list.

* Creative Copywriting Homework

*Dress and Human Behavior Homework

*Statistics Practice Exam

*Finish and Print GEMS Layout
