October 28 – November 3
Days 246 – 252
In order to help me to get up to date on my blog and to keep my subscribers from receiving far too many emails, I’ve decided to cluster my overdue posts into weeks. Enjoy!
A year In Photos Days 231-239
Leaving Texas was very hard for me. Since moving to Korea to teach in February 2011, this was only my second trip home to the States in a year and a half. My first trip home was back in January and I was only there for 2 weeks. It flew by! This time I was home twice as long, but it still didn’t feel long enough.
I’m was so thankful for our stop off in Hawaii because it was absolutely gorgeous there and so relaxing! The Grand Hyatt Kauai was stunningly beautiful. Couldn’t have asked for a better resort! And the Hyatt Waikiki had fantastic room views.
Here are 50 of my favorite Hawaii pictures. Click the photo to see a larger image.
I’m really mad at myself for not taking more pictures in Texas! I really had to scramble to find enough photos for my year in photos project. I think it was a combination of being so busy, breaking my point and shoot camera right before coming to Texas and not carrying my iPhone around because it only seemed useful when I had access to a wireless internet connection. I apologize for not having more photos of the place and people I love so very much.
Week 4 was my final week in Texas. Dave and I had a blast and we kept busy nearly every minute of every day. On Sunday we had an amazing brunch with my mom and Nana then went to see Kooza by Cirque du Soleil. The plot of the show was a little odd, but the tricks and performance were incredible! We loved it! On Monday we went to the State Fair of Texas with my mom, JJ, Jen, Mendi, Parker and Kenzie. We had a good time. We spent Tuesday at the mall and then had dinner with my dad and Sandy. Wednesday was another shopping day and then we went to the rehearsal and dinner. Thursday was JJ and Jen’s wedding. Dave and I did a bit more shopping on Friday, then frantically packed up 4 full boxes and shipped them back to Korea. That evening we had game night at Josh & Mendi’s. So many people showed up and we had a really great night. Everyone seemed to love Dave and I think he had a really good time in Texas, which I’m happy about.
September 30 – October 6
Week 3 was a very busy week! I had a great time with my family and friends. I met up with some old co-workers, Shane and Matt for Indian food and games. We played this hilarious new game that I’d never heard of called Cards Against Humanity. I also went to Dallas and had dinner and drinks with my friend Natalie. Saturday was an especially busy day because I needed to go to the airport in the morning to pick Dave up! I was so excited that he was finally going to be in Texas and excited to show him off to all of my family and friends. Later that night was Jen’s bachelorette party so Dave got to rest at the hotel while I went out and celebrated my future sister-in-law.
During week 2, I spent a lot of time with my brother Josh, Sister-in-Law Mendi, my niece Kenzie and nephew Parker. I had a bunch of different doctor’s appointments and I felt pretty crappy most of the week. Luckily, Mendi took good care of me. Kenzie had a school performance on Thursday and I was so happy that I happened to be in town for it. Also, on Friday was my 10 year class reunion!
