Drum Roll Please!

Well, Ty has officially released me from my silence. I am free to make the announcement that by now is probably painfully obvious to most of you...we're moving TO KANSAS! I know, quite a shocker. Things are in motion. Ty should be giving his notice later on this week, we're working on finishing up the house, and getting packed. I've got a whirlwind of emotions going on - excitement, fear, and sadness to name a few. We've been slowly saying goodbye to the people we love, and it's heartbreaking. Judging by the name of my blog, you can imagine that this will be an entirely new experience for me. I'm sure there will be many interesting and awkward moments for me, and lucky for you, you get to read about them right here! Here's a little sample of just how "uncountrified" I am: We were sitting around with Ty's family shortly after we got married, and someone starts telling stories about when Ty's parents were first married. They start cracking up about how Ty's mom couldn't even make gravy when she first married his dad! I refrained from commenting that I had no idea how to make gravy. I actually tried once, but most of the time when I bring it up Ty just says, "Let me just show you," and he ends up doing it. You know, there are some things that just don't change, and I don't think the city/Texan in me will ever die. Right here and now, I vow never to say "pop" instead of "coke", or "crick" instead of "creek," and I will never lose my love for all things urban or let my girls grow up afraid of all "the city" has to offer. Actually, I'm really hoping that they'll get the best of both worlds (Payton would be so proud of my Hannah Montana reference) and learn to appreciate the blessings that come from both kinds of living. Well, here's to all the crazy times ahead. Stay tuned for updates on the move and all that jazz.

It's worse when you announce it like this you know...even though I already knew.

Would it make you feel any better if I told you that Lance's mom was a home ec major at ACU? Apparently she can make gravy out of anything (although Lance particularly likes her sausage gravy), and my first gravy came out rather like Elmer's glue. Only less flavor, probably.
