Boy did my weekend start off interesting! Friday after work I ran up to the mall to grab a few things. The weather was not looking too good, but I checked to see where the storm was going to hit and it was going to miss Fayetteville, so I ventured to the mall. Well what i didnt know is that there was TWO storms. While I was shopping I was getting weather text message alerts saying Severe Thunderstorm warning, and I thought it was the storm that was going to hit north of us. Then I went into Dillards and saw that a lot of the employees were looking outside and then I saw some smaller tress spinning from the wind.. ummm not good. THEN I get another text message alert stating TORNADO WARNING…… uh oh! Of course I would be at the mall during a Tornado warning! So I call my family to see where they are and then the manager comes over the intercom stating that there is indeed a tornado cloud RIGHT ABOVE THE MALL and that it is showing signs of dropping, but is going back up into the sky. Cue Tara freaking out. So we all venture to the Dillards basement to wait out the storm. I call Drew and of course, he doesnt think its that big of a deal (even though the tornado sirens were going off) What he didnt know is that I was where the epicenter of the storm was! Luckily nothing happened and the storm passed over in about 3 min. I think next time I should probably stay home!! Needless to stay I stayed home the rest of the night and hung out with Drew and Sadie : )
Saturday morning I went to a baby shower for Erin. My brother in law’s mom, Becky, threw the shower at her home. It was beautiful! We had so much fun and ate a yummy brunch. I cant wait to meet Little Sam! Here are some pics!
