we're baaaaack.

Hi Friends!!!

I am happy to report that we have officially made it back to Brisbane in one piece! I have so much to share... thoughts... feelings... pictures... but like always, coming home from a huge vacation requires another little vacation of its own to sort out all of our things, catch up on some much needed sleep and get back in to our daily routine. While I can brag about the fact that I have already unpacked all of our stuff, washed and put away everything and gotten Lachlan over his jetlag (... well almost) I have yet to download any of our pictures or sit down and really process all of the memories we just made. Thank you soo, soo much to everyone who made this trip so unforgettable by taking time out of your lives for Lachlan and me. You truly have no idea how much it means to me to have such amazing people still in our lives even though our visits are few and far between. We already miss you all (or shall I say y'all) so much and can't wait to see you again (plus more!) in June. 

So, while I continue to settle back in to real life here in Bizzy, I thought I would share a few, very random, things I noticed during our trip back State side. 

1. American toilets are lower to the ground than Australian ones... and just all together different really. 

2. It seems that the length of a yellow traffic light in America is much shorter than here in Oz. grreeeeeeeeen. yellow. reeeeeeeeeeeeeed. 

3. Many of the food and food places that I miss were, for the first time, not as good as I remembered. Could my taste buds really be changing?!?!

4. Shopping in the US is still so, sooo much better and cheaper. 

5. Even after seeing many beautiful beaches in many beautiful places in the world, I still miss Pensacola Beach and rank it number 1 on my list.

6. In the few days we had between adventures, I discovered a show called "Extreme Couponing" on TLC and my. mind. was. blown. Those people are crazy!! And organised!! And just crazy!!

7. And finally, this commercial cracked me up. It was well over played but the genuine ramblings of this little girl made me laugh every single time.

I believe it is even funnier if I type out what she says....

"More is better than less because if stuff is not les... if there's more less stuff then... you might, you might want to have some more and your parents just don't let you because there is only a little bit."

"We want more! We want more! Like, you really like it. You want more!"

Ahh... gets me every time!

Okay, that is all for now. And thanks for sitting around while I took this, nearly 4 week, blog sabbatical :)
