Hello? Anyone still out there?

Hi there!

I'm a little ashamed to have been gone so long but life has been happening and there's not been much time to sit and write about it. Where on earth do I begin?

We FINALLY live in the US! The Dallas area to be exact. We arrived here late on January 31st. All three of us had come down with a terrible stomach bug. That 4 hour flight was the longest 4 hours of our lives..we never thought it would end.

The next day we moved into our new home. At the time we were leasing it from a couple that had to suddenly move back to Georgia to deal with a family situation. The 3rd week of May we bought the house and have been settling in ever since!
We love life here and are so glad we made the move. It took us 6 years to get here, but the journey was very much worth it! We are counting our blessings every day...God has been so good to us.

Now, the whole reason I even wrote this post was because my sweet cousin over at Hannah and Bryan nominated me for the "your going places, baby" award! Thanks just gave me the kick in the petunia that I needed (I've been watching Tinkerbell with Sophia just a tad too much!)!

The rules for this award:

(1) describe where I think I'll be in 10 years and (2) pass the fun along to 10 other bloggers.

In 10 years, we'll still be happily settled in Texas (I hope!) with 2 - 3 kids, some dogs, our cats. Sophia will be on the verge of the teen years (WHOA!) so I'm sure I'll have my hands full with drama! Hopefully we'll have our lake or beach house by that time and we'll be taking our annual vacations, FINALLY! I'm hoping by then that I have established my at home job as a transcriptionist so I can continue to stay home with the kids.

Now the 10 winners are:

Ummm, make that 7 winners - I don't read enough blogs, obviously!

Happy Friday and I hope you all have a fab weekend!

Thank you so much for the award, I feel so special.
Long time without a peep from you.
Whatever happened with Sophia's Citzenship?

So glad you gave the award to Bumpkin!! She's fabulous, isn't she! Once you go to Lisa's blog, you'll be hooked. She's like a drug ;-)

Sophia finally has her dual citizenship. We couldn't make the move until she had it, so we worked hard and fast to get her American Citizenship.

Jen, I adore Bumpkin..She is indeed fabulous!
