Texas Trip Part 1 – Getting There

I am BACK! Have y’all missed me? Well, maybe you have, maybe you haven’t. Sorry this post took so long to be posted…those in the comments have been waiting for this LOL!

So, here is part 1 of 3 of the photos from my trip.ย There aren’t a lot of photos for this one, but the next two have a LOT of photos. Part 2 will have the most photos EVER. A huge, humongous, ginormously enormous ย overload, so when part 2 gets here pick a nice comfortable spot with a drink and a snack because you will be there for a while. ๐Ÿ™‚

*I have permission to post the following photo. Since we don’t live there anymore, I have permission to post photos of the GPS.*

DAY 1: Stopping for the night in New Orleans!

IMG_8877Driving along! Look at my crazy little brother. Him and I laughed so hard when we took these photos! He has half a Panera Bread bread bowl stuffed in his face. XD

IMG_8879IMG_8886This isn’t a video, just a HILARIOUS screenshot of the one I took! It looks like he has gigantic, hideous lips!

IMG_8889 IMG_8890We stopped in Louisiana for the night….we stayedย at a VERY fancy hotel! We hot-spotted it so we got it real cheap but it is sooooooo fancy. The fanciest I’ve ever stayed in.

IMG_8891 IMG_8892 IMG_8893 IMG_8894New Orleans lights!

IMG_8896 IMG_8897 IMG_8898 IMG_8899 IMG_8900That’s where we stayed for the night!

IMG_8901 IMG_8903

IMG_8907 IMG_8908 IMG_8909 IMG_8910In the morning, look at all these fancy breakfast choices. Wow.

IMG_8913IMG_8914 IMG_8915 IMG_8916What a cool view!

IMG_8917Here’s our breakfast! Delivered right to our room….WOW, right?!

DAY 2: Almost Home

Oh, and if you want to be emotionally with me, listen to this inspiringly/sad music while you read this. It enhances the dramatic moments of being reunited with Texas. XD

IMG_8967Day 2 of our trip! I didn’t take any photos of day 1, sorry. XD We’ll be there soon….crossing the Texas border any minute now!

IMG_8969We’re getting close!

IMG_8970Buckle up, Texas!

IMG_8971Here it comes…..


I AM HOME, FOLKS! *happy tears at this moment*

IMG_8983 IMG_8985 IMG_8987 IMG_8989More photos, and the Texas flag on the far left. It looks yellow in this awful picture, but it actually has a white stripe.

Emelie and I are reminiscing memories as we drive down the road – Texas is a part of us. No, it is all of us. It’s where I’ve lived all my life up until just a few months ago. When I left…I left a part of me there. And whatever happens to my old house, which is now up for sale – I’ll be with it. Whether it gets knocked down to build a hideous mansion, or turned into a school or another church – a part of me will be with it.


IMG_8993We are getting closer!

IMG_8995 IMG_8996 IMG_8997 IMG_8999 IMG_9001 IMG_9002There’s another church just down the road from our home!

IMG_9003 IMG_9004 IMG_9005 IMG_9006 IMG_9007There it is. There’s where I belong.

IMG_9009 IMG_9011I’m home. I cried at this moment, taking pictures rapidly at not very good quality.

IMG_9013Driving in!

IMG_9014*gasp, let out all held breaths*

We’re home.

IMG_9016My house!


OK, that ended pretty emotional. The next part is even more emotional, horribly sad, but a bunch of pictures are in it. Stay tuned for part 2, where you get a full tour of my old house and 3 acres of land!

With Emelie tagging right along! ^_^

    Yay! You’re home! ๐Ÿ™‚ Did you drive friendly the Texas way? We have traveled to Texas several times and I just love their motto! ๐Ÿ˜€ I bet Emelie is happy, too!

        Do you mean that you drove really fast (other than when it was raining of course)? When my aunt and uncle went to Texas to visit my cousin, the speed limits were a lot larger than they are where I live. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Aww. I feel so sorry for you. I would be crushed. I know moving is hard. I have lived in 3 states! I can’t wait to see part 2 though!

      Aw, you are so sweet Lainey <3 You are a great friend.
      Thanks so much - prayers are greatly appreciated! <3 I did, though I am back now I will never forget the fun time I had!
      P.S. Thank you so much! My other more rectangular ones broke, and I like these much better ๐Ÿ™‚ So my glasses breaking was really a blessing in disguise, LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

        How long have you worn glasses, BTW?
        I started wearing them when I was 3!!! But I don’t wear them that much anymore, I only really need them for reading and that’s it.

          Since September, I believe, of 2014. I took me a while to get used to them – it would give me a headache, and looking at an electronic ‘screen’ would hurt and be blurry.
          Wow! Did you dislike them at that age? Did you break them or anything lol? That’s good you only need them for reading – so your eyesight has gotten better since then? That is so cool.

            **Totally forgot to respond to this, haha!!**
            That’s really cool! Yeah, I totally know what you mean. If I wear them and look at a screen, my eyesight does get blurry.
            Honestly, I don’t remember. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don’t think I did. And luckily, I’m pretty sure I never broke them-LOL!!
            Yeah, honestly it doesn’t make too much difference whether I wear them or not, but reading small print is pretty tough sometimes.

              ***Hehe, no problem! I sometimes forget too, XD***
              Thank you! Yeah, it took a while to get used to them. I would get SO frustrated! LOL
              Hehe! That’s good you didn’t break them! You must have been a very responsible 3 year old.
              Do you wear your reading glasses when you do school?

    P.S. You’re welcome!:) I have reading glasses!
    Oh! And BTW, I left a comment for you on HappyHouseOfAG on the last post of the BFF Wars.

      Thanks again - I think I'm going back in a month for another important eye visit. I can't wait! ^_^
      P.S. My BFF Piper has reading glasses too! What do yours look like?
      OK, I just commented back! ^_^

      Since I don’t live in Texas anymore, no, this summer, my BFF’s are coming to Florida and we’ll be going to the new AG store! I’m excited. That is 1 good thing about Florida so far.
      (and that’s the only good thing about Florida. Lol. I don’t try to sound negative, I just really, really dislike being here. ๐Ÿ™ On a happier note…Part 2 of my Texas trip is posted! ^_^)

    Are you going to move back into your old house in TX or are you going to stay in Florida?

      Stay in Florida. After a few years, God will tell us what to do next. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You’re welcome! Yeah, I know I would’ve been frustrated if I were you too!
    Haha, it is! I must have been, wish I could remember! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think I still have my first pair of glasses in the kitchen junk drawer…I will have to look sometime!! They were so cute, they were golden and had Mickey Mouse ears on the sides.
    Yup! Well, if we’re being honest, I haven’t worn them in a while, but yes, I do wear them. And they really help, especially in math because the problems are so teeny-tiny!! Hehe!! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Lol yeah.
      Haha! That’s cool you might still have them… I don’t know where my old pair went. (They broke when my sister **acidentally** smacked me in the face.) oh that’s right when I got my new pair, Wal-Mart took them. XD
      Aw they sound cute! I bet you really liked the !
      Lol! I’m glad they help with the math problems. They really are teeny tiny! ๐Ÿ˜€

        I agree! Aw, that stinks!
        LOL, was it really an accident? ๐Ÿ˜‰
        That actually reminds me of a story: one time in gym class at my old school, we were throwing balls through a hoop (I guess kind of like basketball but it technically wasn’t a game), and one of the balls hit me right on the bridge of my nose, where my glasses were, after it came through the hoop! Ouch! For the whole rest of the school year I had to take my glasses off before gym. ๐Ÿ˜‰
        I did! ๐Ÿ˜€
        Me too, they make me cross-eyed sometimes!

          It was – I think. XD. I was laying down, and she was trying to smack the place in front of me (to startle/scare me) but she missed, accidentally hitting my face and sending my glasses off my face. When I picked them up they were broken. XD
          Ouch! I bet that hurt! Haha thats good you took them off before gym the rest of the school year. XD At my old gymnastics, I took my glasses off before, because we would do somersaults and stuff and I didn’t want to land on my face on the trampoline when we did ‘belly flops’ XD!

            Yeah, it did! I agree-XD
            Oh, that’s a smart idea actually! ๐Ÿ˜€ I would’ve probably done that too.

You have a voice. I'd love to hear it!
