Sorry for the confusion. Moving to Charlotte would be nice, we are actually going to be moving to.....
Why the tears? Well I don't like Arkansas. We used to go there to visit family. It's not my family I don't like, or the people of Arkansas. I've just had some stinky memories there.
Twelve year old Rachael once vowed to never return.
We found out last night and I just kept saying, "No, you are joking me. No, No NOOOOO!" Taylor's boss heard me over the phone.
I immediately called my mom. I told her through tears that we were going to move to Arkansas in a month. Both her and my dad started laughing.
Then my mom cheered me up.
It's time to replace those stinky memories with good ones.
Arkansas deserves another chance. After all, it will only be for four months.
So I've been waiting all day to change the subject.
This Valentine's Day is the first Valentine's Day that Taylor and I have gotten to celebrate alone.
Last year our house was always packed with Taylor's friends, their friend's and the neighborhood kids. All day and all night, our house was always occupied. It's partially due to the fact that we had a 50 inch TV screen and a lot of video games.
Lets just say last Valentine's Day was not a good one. Sitting on the floor of my own house waiting around for video games to be over so that I could go out to dinner isn't a happy memory at all.
Valentine's Day is very special to me. It's the day Taylor proposed to me, and I like to celebrate that.
Taylor learned from last years disaster.
This Valentine's Day was much better.
"Just tea for two, And two for tea, Just me for you, And you for me."
Taylor promised me a couple of months ago he would have a tea party with me.
Of course I went all out.
I even bought a new skirt for the occasion.
This is probably my favorite skirt ever.
Taylor complimented it over and over.
I bought it from Priscilla Dawn Please check out her shop.
She makes the cutest doll like dresses!!
After tea time Taylor took me on a surprise trip to a nearby lake.
Taylor redeemed himself.
Later we went out to a movie and to dinner,
where Taylor learned the hard way about the importance of reservations.
I forgive him, he is still pretty new to this.
Now I'm sitting on the couch.
There is a meeting going on 2000 miles away,
About where we will move to next.
Mowgli is wagging his tail in his sleep.
I'm waiting for a very exciting phone call. I'll keep you posted.
I have many collections. Tea sets, acorns, polished rocks, buttons, incense burners and vintage scarves to name a few. My most impressive collection? Shoes and Clothes. I've had the same "random-I'll-wear-just-about-anything-style" since my sophomore year of high school and I haven't grown since then. I hardly ever throw out clothing. I figure I can always alter then later. So this collection is quite massive and takes up more than 2 closets.
I've lived without this collection for almost a year now.
Last March Captain Alaska got a new job, we were to move to California for 4 months. We didn't have much space, so I was only able to bring about 1/4 of this collection.
4 month later Taylor was given the opportunity to work in North Carolina. We had even less space. I had to leave almost all of my clothes! I'll go ahead and embarrass myself, I cried a bit.
I've was only able to bring 2 pairs of shoes! 2!
This morning I woke up to a blanket of fresh snow and a huge box full of new clothes waiting at my doorstop.
Purchased just for me.From me. To make me feel better. I will figure out how to get them to our new home.. don't you worry.
New shirt, new jeans, 2 new pairs of shoes, 2 new hats and a new dress, all for me.
Here is just one outfit.
You'll see the rest in time, I'm sure.
Uh-Oh, where is my wallet?
Laughing about the above picture.
I can't think of an appropriate caption.
I asked Captain Alaska to take me to the store so I could buy eggs.
(I hate driving, especially when there is snow around)
I asked him to wait in the car to keep it warm for me.
He followed me around. Which wasn't part of my plan.
I was trying to buy him some Valentine goodies.
I tried to send him on various quests..
He wouldn't go.
I finally said to him,
"Look, I'm trying to surprise you for Valentines. Beat it."
He laughed because he knew the whole time.
We laughed really hard and he gave me a kiss and we picked out candy together.
