I've been catching up with friends and family. Thrifting for treasures for our new home. Getting ready to buy and move into our new home. Deciding on final details for our wedding reception. Going crazy with anticipation. Moving. New house. Reception. Cruise. Fourish years in a brand new place. Ahh. So much going on in such a short amount of time. So just because I'm going through blogging withdrawals, here's a short post about what's happened since I left Korea!
So let's go way back. Our flight home was great. For those that don't know, Rooney was actually IN the cabin with me! He went through security and all that jazz. All eyes on US. He was SO GOOD. He even walked on the moving sidewalk, rode in an elevator, and got on a tram. The only thing he wouldn't do was ride an escalator. He was not having that. We had a seat in a bulk head row, and he laid at my feet for the whole 12 hours. He was very drugged. He was so well behaved that ALL of the flight attendants commented on his behavior each time they walked by. The only problem was that he did NOT fit in the bathroom on the plane. That was inconvenient since I have a bladder the size of a raisin and I couldn't just leave Rooney unattended in the cabin. We did make one trip to the handicapped bathroom at the very back of the plane, but it was such a long walk WITH A DOG that I decided to deprive myself of water for the rest of the flight. That was fun. Rooney and I shared ice cubes whenever the flight attendants brought drinks around. Other than the bathroom issue, everything went better than expected. I was a proud dog momma.
The area around our house and around base is perfect. There's SO much to do! Shopping for days. Any restaurant you could ever hope for. And WAWA.
I did some more thrifting, basically planned interior decor for our entire house, spent a lot of time on Pinterest, and hung out with Rooney and Hoosier.
I also got to go up to South Bend to visit my friend, Ally, who student taught across the hall from me last year! That girl saved my life. Whenever my teacher made me cry, she was there to vent to! We spent our mornings talking shit in the copy room. Spent our lunches quietly listening to the teachers talk about each other. And we had amazing Panera dates to plan our units and lessons! It was great to get to see her again!
I am SO excited for Drew to get home tomorrow night and FINALLY get ready to head to our second duty station! I'm counting down the hours until we move. I can't wait to show you our new house, our new city, and our new adventures!
