WHEW- crisis averted.

Just spent the last 12 hours without wi-fi it was seriously a bleak time in my life. I know, drama drama, but for reals- I had an IT here at 7am trying to fix it  he ended up leaving me without internet. I stumped the IT guy, AND paid him $100.

I legit broke the internet, but not in a cool Kim K. kinda way.

As I was sitting here, literally twiddling my thumbs not knowing what to do with my life sans internet, BOOM- TV comes back on, internet fires up, finalllly this POST IS GOING LIVE.

I took a few days off from work cause I have had family in town, but I am really happy Y2K didn’t happen to me cauze I have MISSED YOU GUYS it’s also been a damn long time since I got my hands dirty w/ a little DIY action.

Now that I am in this new, much bigger, space you guys can def. expect more DIY projects. Nothing like a move to get the creative juices going, ya know?
