from dallas to atlanta

before i start, i would like to acknowledge that i am very aware that i have not posted in almost 2 months now.  i have had a world of things going on the past 2 months that i am about to begin explaining, the rest will have to be split into another post, which is soon to come!

our 2nd wedding anniversary

we decided to celebrate with our favorites...starbucks, shopping, maggiano's (our all-time fav) and a few pics along the way.

this particular monday also marked exactly one week before we left dallas.  


loyal has been in dallas for the past year and a half working on hail claims for the endless amount of storms in the dallas area. endless seemed to be a very appropriate description, until now.  the claims eventually ran out and in that case, the adjusters are finished in that particular area.  to be honest, we really didn't see this one coming.  every time claims got close to running out we would have yet another storm that brought more hail which, in return, brought more claims.  but, sadly, our time here was up.  we went back and forth about what to do...stay in dallas, go to new orleans or go back to atlanta.  we decided on atlanta.  we also decided to buy an rv.  i was super pumped but loyal, not so much.  i think it's such a great idea.  we can use it to travel. if we want to go to new orleans for 2 weeks over christmas WITH the dogs, we can.  next time we go on the road we can stay in this rather than in a hotel or extremely expensive month-to-month apartments.  so, in a week we celebrated our anniversary, ate at all of our favorite dallas restaurants, bought the rv, packed up everything we had and hit the road.  but first!  we had to eat at our fav pizza place one last time.  this was the very first place we ate together in dallas and now the very last place we ate before we left.

after that, it was back to atlanta.  we were honestly so happy to be back to see friends and family that we hadn't seen in so long.  as for right now we will be staying in atlanta for a while until we get called somewhere else.  


as most of you already know, we made the big announcement that we are expecting!!!  i have a ton of posts in the works so you will have to check back!



  1. Yay! Congrats! So exciting! Too many things to congratulate you both on. So happy for you two. Keep me posted on your paper biz, I already have inquiries for you!

    xoxo Jessica

  2. An RV?! That's awesome...and definitely not something you hear of everyday. ha! But certainly a great/smart idea. I'm so very happy that you're back here and that you're expecting... I know we aren't that close, but I do adore seeing your sweet face! There was a reason we worked at Tav together... I'm so blessed at the friendships I still have from there. And of course, I love your sista! Hope to see you and loyal ...and the cute lil belly soon!!
    Much love,

    1. Awww Kel!!! You are always so sweet and soooo freakin cute! I just love you to pieces! xoxox
