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. 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  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. :-)

*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 stayed 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_8896 IMG_8897 IMG_8898 IMG_8899 IMG_8900That’s where we stayed for the night!

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! ^_^
