Friday Daydreamin’-Take Me Home

“Country roads, take me home. To the place, I belong.” -John Denver

Today I’m off on an Ikea adventure with Tahoe Girl. Then we’re spending the weekend hanging out. It’s her mom’s 60th birthday on Saturday and she invited yours truly to help decorate for it! Tonight we’re going to hit up a happy hour and just kick back. I’m really excited for our little weekend.

But part of me is already daydreamin’ about an upcoming trip I’m taking with Match in November. I mentioned he’s in the middle of a TEN day work week right? Well he’s doing a shift trade so he can score himself ten days off in late October/early November. I can’t wait!

We’re heading to Oregon to visit my family, and the in-laws just may be tagging along. We’re talking about having an early Thanksgiving. I can’t tell you the last time I had Thanksgiving with my family. Sniffle. Also Match hasn’t been home to visit my folks since we got engaged back in December of 2009, almost 2 years ago!!

I can’t wait to go home and wander the beaches.

Go back to the park where he proposed and get a picture during the day. You can’t tell here, but he proposed on a cliff side overlooking the ocean with a full moon. It’s that tiny dot in the picture.

and spend some quality time with my family. Match is such a hoot in Oregon. He runs around like a country boy, chasing the goats and driving like a banshee on the four wheeler. We’re also hoping to make a lot of pit stops on the road trip back and make an adventure out of it.

Look at that shit eating grin. I can already see him buying an SUV with a thule ski rack and moving us to the sticks. That boy belongs in the country!

I’m really looking forward to showing the in-laws around my little town and the house that built me. I couldn’t wait to get away from it when I was a teenager, but now I can’t wait to go back. Funny how getting older does that to you.


    Seriously Shawn

    I love that you’re so excited to get back home and to the “house that built you”. I do have to say your hubby looks very happy and every bit the part of a country boy!

    Have fun this weekend!

    Hey! You didn’t clear your plans with me MISSY! 😉

    I hope you have a great weekend! When I first saw the dark pic, I was wondering why you included a picture of nothing. But then you READ and find out that it isn’t NOTHING. Gah! I have a bad habit of scanning the pics first.

    Anyway, he does look pretty happy in the country! Maybe you’ll be moving back home instead? lol

    Talk to you soon~

    No joke! When my parents sold the house I grew up in, I felt like I lost a little piece of my childhood. :O(

    There’s something about going home when you haven’t been there in awhile. It feels amazing!! I’m so glad ya’ll are getting to go!!!


    sounds like you have a lot to look forward to. i hope time passes quickly for you!


    I am shocked at how much I miss home! I can’t wait to go back. Did you hit the jackpot at IKEA?! L. and I went this weekend too and got two night tables and some little decorative things. I saw this adorable throw for the bedroom that I passed up and, in typical fashion, have been thinking about it ever since!

Your comments make my day!
