3,975:

number of miles we drove December 28th to January 9th. it was insane, but we made it and managed to have some fun along the way.

we had so much fun visiting with Jon & Jess in Omaha. Their home is gorgeous and the baby belly is the cutest thing EVER. i felt baby m kick and it was my favorite thing ever! 

a few pictures of jon & jess with baby loot...



after hearing our movers were going to be delayed several more days with our stuff we decided to head to manhattan to visit brett & beth for a few days. it was great to visit with them and we even went on a hike in KANSAS. whoever said the midwest isn't beautiful hasn't seen it for real.

you like my new midwest winter coat?? i have to get bundled out here.
i heart the prairie.
our last leg was to our new homeland. grant is still learning the basics of sign anticipation while acting as photographer... look closely and you'll see the welcome to missouri sign...
 
i'm glad we made it, but i'm now feeling the stress of the fact that we live in a very new, very different place. it will take some getting used to.
i'll post tomorrow about the joy that is our apartment and how much i ABHOR unpacking.

I want you to know that I got the book Doodle Stitching and some supplies! I have already started practicing my stitches - which some kind of confuse me, but I am trying. I liked your hoodies so much that I am going to attempt to make a bride hoodie for myself with a Las Vegas theme since I am getting married in Vegas. I will continue to practice before I start the big project so hopefully i will start soon! Thanks!

So glad you made it safe and sound!! Sounded like quite the journey. Living in a new place defintitely takes some adjusting and I know exactly how you feel. Just enjoy this time for meeting new folks and exploring your new surroundings. I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts!
