When we moved to Vegas, the plan was to be here for 1, maybe 2 years at the most...get some good work experience and then be on our way. That didn't happen. We have been here 4 1/2 years. And, in a very unexpected way, it has become home.
Ace just got a job in Salt Lake, so we are leaving Vegas behind and heading to Utah Valley! We got the job offer really out of the blue on Friday Nov. 12th and will officially be moving this Saturday. So, in other words, it's going to be a super great week: packing, changing utilities, packing, selling washer/dryer, packing, changing mail address, packing...etc...Jealous? You should be.
For the first little bit, we will be staying with the ultra thrilled Grandma Leelee, until we figure out where we want to be living...
The timing for everything has just seemed to fall into place, and we've just been going with the flow. Feeling a little in Limbo-land, which has been weird, but it's been neat to watch how everything keeps lining up (especially different from what I had planned out in my head)
There are things that I really, really won't miss about "Sin City"
-Having to be prepared at all times to quickly avert my eyes from any given billboard/taxi advertisement
-Grocery shopping in 120 freaking degree weather
-The ridiculously angry drivers who would rather you crash into a tree on the side of the rode than allow you to merge
-The Pig Farm
-Rocks being considered landscaping
Some things I WILL miss
-Feeling like going to a buffet and having more of an option than Golden Corral
-My Target and Kohl's: they are never crowded and always have everything and such awesome sales...ohhh I love them so much!
-Game nights with our awesome neighbors
-ALL our super great friends.
We have wanted to leave Vegas for so long...I never, ever thought that I would be so sad to go when it actually happened.
We are excited about being close to family (for the first time in our marriage, even), and for some new experiences, but it is going to be sad to leave this crazy town behind...
