Instead of sleeping the whole flight, I ended up catching up on every movie I've kind of wanted to see, but never got a chance to. I watched: The Back Up Plan (ehh..slow...kind of bad acting), Death at a Funeral (Saw the first version, curious to see if the plot changed in the second one- it didn't. Had some funny parts), Valentine's Day (ok, kind of dragged out), Bounty Hunter (ok, can't stand Gerard Butler), Date Night (decently funny), Family Guy, How I Met Your Mother, and Castle episodes. I pretty much am tv/movied out. If you know me, you know I'm not a huge movie or tv fan, so this was all I need to last me the rest of the year- unless Channing Tatum comes out with a movie (rumors of "the vow" with Rachel Mc Adams...yesss).
I had the most amazing chicken with couscous for dinner, smoked salmon for the meal before landing, and an incredible ice cream sundae. I was so cozy in my quilt the entire flight it was easy to forget how long it was taking us to get home!
I was pleasantly surprised that customs, baggage claim, and the shuttle to Grey Lady (Ordy's truck) only took around 2 hours. Customs alone usually takes that long. The whole process of claiming and rechecking your bag in Atlanta is ridiculous, but I don't complain because I like the safety factor! America knows how to do lines at least... we have 50 lanes for passport clearance where everyone else has like 6. Speaking of passport, I'm so pleased to be close to my goal of needing a new passport for space reasons and not expiration! It's always been my dream since I was little going through my dad's passports and seeing all the stamps to rack them up as well. I am on page 21 of 24 in my passport!!! It's that full! <-- huge goal/accomplishment for me (it's been on my 10 year plan/bucket list since I was 9!)
Ordy filled his new one up pretty fast this summer- with the Caymans, Paris, and London! It's been an amazing summer for us and I'm so thankful to have been able to go with him. We're so blessed to be in our 20's and traveling the world. I know it's a rare opportunity, and I'm so thankful to be given the chance!
We FINALLY made it to my sisters to get my car/see the kids and oh.my.gosh. I have missed those little turds!!! My 2 year old nephew had matching Havaiana flip flops on and I almost ate him up right there! My baby girl niece had the prettiest hair growing out I melted a little on the inside. I knew I missed them, but seeing them there made me realize just how much. I hated being away. It reminds me why I will forever be close to my sisters house and can never ever move more than 30 minutes away!

Sorry, back to being home. Bandit is comfy on his bed (so hard to keep him off my bed and not cuddle) and I am loving life right now because my sweet dog/house sitter left everything just like I left it and I don't have to clean anything up! I just get to update the blog and crawl in bed until I unpack tomorrow- best feeling ever!
|My bed was even made! Bless her :) ha|
K, now that it's officially 6 am (to me), I think I will call it a night!!! So happy to be safe at home!
