No one enjoys dealing with construction, especially when delays make it seem like there is no end in sight. For one woman, she decided to embrace the construction site in front of her home, throwing a party to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the unfinished road work.
She recently went viral with photos of her party, custom cake, and her “if you can’t beat them, join them” mentality.
Natalie went all out with the celebration and even posed for a mini-photo shoot on her torn-up street. She stood in front of a bulldozer and construction signs while showing off her baked creation.
Keeping with the theme, she donned a party hat and an orange construction vest over a shirt featuring the fleur-de-lis symbol. In addition to the cake, she held orange and yellow balloons.
Natalie Harvey told FOX8 that her entire street is currently torn up, including directly in front of her house, which spans a long block. Natalie said:
Our driveways on my side were blocked for about 3 months this summer. Now the other side is blocked, so nearly every house on the opposite side of the street from mine has their driveways blocked.
Why is this road work taking so long, you may be asking. Natalie says it’s because of the sporadic work schedule.
As an example, they’ll work every day for a week, then there will be 2-3 weeks with nothing. The work has definitely picked up in the last couple of weeks. But you never know when it’s going to stop and when it’s going to start back up again.
While her post was just for fun, Harvey hopes the construction is completed soon. If not, there may be another party next year.
