We made it!

After an incredibly long week, we are safely in Hope Mills, North Carolina! Jake's dad drove our car down, and Jake and I drove down the moving truck (well Jake drove, and I just sat in the passenger seat looking pretty). Magnum was absolutely terrified of the moving truck, so we had him ride with Jake's dad. The roads were absolutely terrible for the majority of the trip. Wednesday (the day we packed the truck) was a giant Blizzard in Michigan, that carried over to Thursday. We left Thursday morning, and only had to deal with bad roads in the morning/ early afternoon. We spent that night in West Virginia. But Friday morning we got caught up in a blizzard in Virginia, and a crazy scary Ice Storm in North Carolina. Thankfully we made it safely, but the roads were pretty awful.
We are all moved in, but only marginally unpacked. Jake has until Thursday to report to his new company, so we are planning on spending the week exploring and unpacking. Magnum hasn't quite settled in yet, we don't think he understands quite what happened. For the first time ever yesterday he tried to run away from me, which leads me to believe he is scared an confused. Hopefully we can introduce him to the dog park here at our complex and he will start to love it here as much as we do.
Our apartment is gorgeous! I will have to post more photos once we unpack, because I'm pretty sure photos of boxes, are not what you want to see. We have a giant beautiful kitchen, two very large, luxurious bathrooms, a dining room, living room and two humungous bedrooms. Seriously, it's a massive apartment, with beautiful appliances and cupboards... And Oh My Goodness! more closet space than you could ever dream of!!! I am in love! I have a gorgeous home, a wonderful husband, actually living in it with me, and a whole new place to explore! Now North Carolina just needs to warm the stink up and everything would be perfect!!!!

Well It's official, we are moving to Ft. Bragg in Fayetteville, NC. We are so excited for this move, and to be able to live together again. Jake has been away at trainings and such for 7 months now, and we are finally getting to move back in with each other :) Jake is now officially Active Duty army. While I have been an Army Wife for 2.5 years, I have a lot of things to learn now that I am an Active Duty wife. It will be interesting to see the differences between NG and AD for myself.

We have a beautiful apartment lined up, and we can't be more excited to make it home. I've never been a big decorator, but this time I'm really getting into color combos, and have a few fun ideas (I blame that one on pinterest). I am a little worried about moving out of Michigan for the first time in my life, but I'm also very excited about it! We will miss our friends and family dearly, but we are really looking forward to finally starting this chapter of our lives.

I would really like to get back into the blogging scene, I have abandoned you guys for far too long!!! (I know! I'm sorry!) I am going to do my best to get back on here and keep you all updated on our lives. Especially now that we are moving, but more than that, I would really like to build my readership back up, and to really commit to bringing life back into this blog. Please bare with me, as the next week will be our big move, therefore, posts will be few and far between, but hopefully starting the 28th, I will be back on the blogosphere for good!

Have a good week! Next time you hear from me, I will be in (hopefully) Sunny North Carolina!!
