Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig...

I need a massage more than anything right now. I just spent the past couple hours driving in intense Dallas traffic and my back hurts pretty bad. But it doesn't matter that much because I'm home!

Home in Little Elm.

For a week and a half.

On Saturday, Anna and Hannah arrive. We will spend a few days after that hanging out in the DFW area, then we will head to College Station on the Wednesday or Thursday before school starts. I'm so excited!

I can't wait to show my British friends around big ol' Texas. After almost 10 years, they get to see where I lived before I moved to England. I will teach them all the Aggie traditions. They will melt in the hot sun. They will learn to two-step. They will see the Aggies win a football game. They will shop in the biggest mall in Texas.

We will have a blast.

My family came down to College Station on Friday to help me and Carolyn move into our new houses. I got everything (almost) set up, and it looks pretty nice! I love my new room. The best part is how dark it gets at night -- I no longer have a very bright light outside my bedroom window! Another thing I love is how much bigger my new room is from my old one (not much, but it feels like it!) and how much softer the carpet is. I love soft carpet!

Even though the weekend was crazy, we had a lot of fun with the family. We got to have a hamburger party on Saturday night with Austin, Natalie, Chris, Natalie's dad, Anna and Leigh Ann. I love hanging out with awesome people! My family really liked Austin, which is good. :) My dad even offered to give him his old road bike, which is a pretty big deal if you know my dad. Then last night, we went to Coffee Station and hung out with Chad, Wilfried, Anna, Natalie and Austin. I'm so glad Kellie got to meet everyone! There is never a dull moment there.

Anyways, so I'm home now, and Sarah is about to get here. We might head to the pool and relax a bit. My parents have gone to Pennsylvania for a week or so, and so it's just us girls here for a while. Good bonding time.

Well, Sarah Green is here, so I should go and hang out. Peace!

P.S. Don't ask me what that picture is... I don't even know where Little Elm Park is... haha!
