Praise the Lord!Β I was given a referral from Kirsten Wells to a Christian couple in Florida that helped me find the best fare possible. Way better thanΒ travelocity orbitz expedia or any place online.Β 

Now that it’s here, I almost can’t believe it. I am so excited, but also the reality of leaving home and family is setting in and it will be very difficult to say good bye. Especially to 2 special kids ↓

…my lovely Gram, a special little cousin or two or 6! Not to mention my amazing sister, wonderful parents, super- fantastic sister in law, super hero brother πŸ™‚ , aunts, uncles and cousins galore. (can you tell we’re tight?!) I love my family β™₯β™₯β™₯

Enough of that….I am so excited!!! I can hardly stand it!!!



Do you see what I see?

I have been checking this website for the last 23 mornings…it finally said something different today πŸ™‚


Well, the Holidays are over. I had a wonderful time with all my immediate and extended family.

Started with a surprise Birthday dinner for my momma. She is the best, I just love her so much.

Then the C&C Christmas Party.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day just flew by. I got this awesome onesie for my niece. It says “If you think I’m cute you should see my Aunt…wanna be my Uncle?” Yeah I know, a.w.e.s.o,m.e!

The Mitchell’s came into town on the 28th and I have loved every second of having them here. I just love them so much ❀

Holly’s birthday was the 1st and we went to Sushi and gave her some super fantastic presents. Ok, so maybe we all dug through our purses and wallets and gave her random stuff, but it was fun and memorable. BTW the sushi was AMAZING, yum!

SO now, things should be starting to settle down and get back to normal….but it’s not…I lay in bed at night and my mind won’t shut off. I keep thinking of all the things I should be doing to get ready for my trip. And then when I do fall asleep all I dream about are different scenarios that my travel is all messed up an I end up on wrong flights and in wrong places. I wake up stressed to say the least πŸ™‚

No, really though, it’s getting close πŸ™‚

I am praying that when I call the Embassy tomorrow that they have the telex saying I am approved and then I can give my 2 weeks notice at work and then I can buy plane tickets and the I can go!!!
