I Love My I

I have one of these...

...and I LOVE it!!!!!

I am one of those lucky people that drives 40 miles to and from work everyday because I work in downtown Dallas, on the 48th floor of a high-rise! Yes, I'm a devoted employee! But sometimes traffic kills me! Luckily, I have 3 or 4 different routes I can take to get home everyday, but days like yesterday are horrible - there was a wreck on EVERY DIFFERENT WAY HOME!!!!!!!!!

So when I got home last night, I found this FREE app - InRIX Traffic.
I tried it out this morning and LOVE IT!!!! When you go to the app, it will pinpoint your current location, then tell you how the traffic is moving on the roads around you, and list any accidents. If you click to see the accident information, then it will tell you exactly what the problem is, how long the backup is, the approximate time to get through the backup, and the approximate speed traffic is traveling in the area!

Thank InRIX, you have now made my travels much more stress-free. And IPhone, I LOVE YOU!!!!!!

What a Wonderful Weekend

Brant and I had a fabulous weekend at The Cliffs on Possum Kingdom lake this past weekend. Mom and Dad have a time share at the condos since they are landowners out there, and this was their week. So Brant and I drove up for a weekend of some much needed R&R!

Saturday, we just slept late and went to play in the water. After out lake outing, Brant and dad went to the driving range, so mom and I did some scrapping. Here are some of the pages I finished.

After dinner that night, we drove around looking at all the dear. We actually saw a herd of four buck - it was awesome. The literally just stand at the side of the road and let you take pictures of them. We only had mom and dad's camera, so I'm waiting for them to email me the pictures.

Sunday, Brant and dad played a round of golf, then back to the lake. Brant and I hated to leave, but it was back to work this morning.

So, much thanks Mom and Dad for letting us come play. We had a blast!

Life in the Fast Lane

Well things the Williams' list have certainly been crazy lately. So, since I haven't posted an update in forever, I thought I would go ahead and post since I'm at home for more than a few hours right now!

First of all, the weekend of July 17-19, I went with mom and sister, and about 15 other ladies, to a scrapbook retreat in Lindale, Tx. It was fabulous. Granted, I tend to lean more toward digital scrapping these days, but this was the perfect opportunity to work on my wedding/honeymoon album that is paper. Just for fun, here are a few of the layouts I created while I was there. If you want to see the small detail of each page, click on it to enlarge.

After I got back from the retreat, life quickly got over into the fast lane. Work is wonderful, but busy! When I left my office yesterday, I had successfully worked over 76 hours in a week! Praise Jesus I decided NOT to go to law school. I would HATE to see my hours if I was an attorney! Right now, so many friends are calling me a workaholic, but I promise I am not.
Yes, things will eventually calm down, but news flash - I WORK AT A LAW FIRM! WE GO TO TRIAL!!!! AND TRIAL LIFE IS CRAZY!!! AND BY THE WAY, I LOVE MY JOB!!!

But last night, I did enjoy a great movie while I snuggled up to the hubs on the couch! We watch Defiance, with Daniel Craig. It was a great movie. Yes, it had some language, but the story is incredible. It all takes place in the 1940's during the holocaust. It is an extremely powerful story about a group of brothers who start a community of Jews living in a forest to escape Nazi capture. If you have not seen this movie, I strongly urge you to.

I hope everyone has had a great weekend, and has a fabulous upcoming week. !!
