The Fifty Nifty States

Not that this blog will be about all fifty states, but I will cover a few.

I love this country. I think sometimes I forget how great it is. I never forget about the freedoms we have, the wonderful people that live in it, but I forget how cool all the areas are. I love the south. I love the manners that everyone has. Little two year olds addressing everyone by ma'am or sir. So cute. I love the East and all the personality it has there. I love the West and secretly wish we lived there. Someday I will live in California with my heart. I love the Midwest. So down to earth and hardworking.

Anyway, one place I am dying to go to is Texas. I promise everyone we know lives there. A lot of our dear friends live there. In fact just this past week we found out another family we love moved there. What is up with Texas? To think Andy had an amazing offer there and we turned it down. We could be living by all our wonderful friends. Although I have to say we love it here being by family. Nothing is better than that.

Another place I have been thinking about is Utah. I will be heading there on Wednesday night. I loved my life there. I loved my 6 years living there. So fun. What a wonderful place it is. Part of the beauty of it is all the great people we met there, but now realizing most of them do not live there anymore. And really, it could not be more beautiful. Why anyone lives in a place without mountains is beyond me. (And yes I know there are NO mountains where I live!)

I am going for a little girls weekend. I am excited, but super nervous to leave my sweeties. Last night I even shed a few tears. Hopefully I got it all out. I have NEVER left them for more than one night and I have only done that once in the last almost 7 years. Hopefully I will be able to make it. And hopefully going to Tempanyaki and Cafe Rio will relieve my stress from being away from them. I will not know what to do with myself only having me to take care of. I plan on seeing a lot of family, eating good food, a little shopping and catching up on sleep, which will probably never happen. Oh and a game night and craft night are in the works. I am excited about it. It will be fun to go back and see how much has changed in 5 years. Should really fun.

I have also been thinking a lot about New York too. We are going to be going on vacation there this summer and we are all pretty excited about it. We are going to NYC for a weekend and upstate for a week. A nice long break with Andy is exactly what we are all needing.

So if any of you are in Utah I would love to see you. Send me an email. So probably until next week my blog will be on break. And SO WILL I!!!

I'm going to New York this summer as well! I need a break from nursing school and a little time away with my sisters to just be free of work and have some good clean fun! Hope you enjoy your trip as much as I anticipate I will on mine! :)

We are going to Utah for the first time since we moved away this summer. Cafe Rio is our number 1 place to go - and we are excited to check out the scene. Won't it be weird to see singles in the Wyview area where we all lived? And I just went to NY for my first time and it was really cool. We stayed in a hotel with no bathroom in the room - and just a isngle bed. But hey - it was only $100 a night!
