Our Jersey adventures are ending...

Well, we are moving back home with only our hopes and dreams in tow. No jobs, but saying prayers every single day that things start falling into place for us. Everything happens for a reason, right? I'm a strong believer of that. We picked the week of August 24 to start making our trip back down there. Not looking forward to our 19 hour drive home with 2 cars and one cat, but our end destination is home, so it will all be worth it. Leslie and Leo are awesome and are letting us stay with them for a little while. We just appreciate that more than you know. Well, I definitely didn't think we would be here for less than a year. Moving up here, we thought we would be here for about 2 years. Oh the drive up here! After driving 19 hours, one $300 speeding ticket, and helping with CPR on a person on the side of the interstate, we made it to New Jersey. Right when Cam said, "Take a right up here. Our apartment is on this street", I just started bawling! I just wanted to be back home with everything and everyone I was familiar with. Everyday was another day of crying, regret and anger. I was pretty bad off for a couple of months. If I talked to you, you heard how horrible everything was. ha ha Not sure how I made it, but I did. And now, it's coming to an end. I just looked back on all the pictures from our time here. There were a lot of good times. We met some great people, saw so many momumental and amazing places, and explored places that I never thought I would see. Looking back, I am so glad that I was able to tough it out and step out of my comfort zone in order expand my horizons. I have experienced it, learned from it, and can say that I have lived in another state, which is something I never thought I would or could ever do. I am going to miss the beautiful weather, being so close to NYC and other unique places, the friends I have made, and of course Wegmans (That store is awesome!). ha ha I know everyone is gonna be so happy to not hear me bitch anymore about missing home, but I'll be happy to not feel like bitching anymore, too. It hasn't been as bad as I made it seem. I just am so close to my family and friends and it took me a very long time to adjust to being so far away. Of course I would start getting used to being up here when we are planning to move home. I guess that's just how it goes. We're going to keep praying that we find careers that we love in Baton Rouge and begin the process of starting over AGAIN! ha ha "Live, laugh, love"

Just some stuff

Well it's been awhile since I have written in here, but why not add something now? Cam and I are just hanging out watching tv. We went to see "The Taking of Pelham 123". Pretty good movie. We enjoyed. Also watched "Taken" last night, and that was pretty good, too. Yea, we watch a lot of movies. I know. :) So Friday we went to Six Flags. Our first ride was Superman, where you start out sitting down and then before you take off, they flip your seat so u are facing the ground, mimicking flying like Superman. It was a pretty good ride, but then it comes to the part where we get over the platform and they are supposed to slowly bring you to where you get off the ride, we stopped. A few minutes go by and we are all just hanging there, we see a few workers walk past us, a few more, and then a guy comes to us to let us know that they will get us down soon, but some dumbass guy jumped the fence to try to get in free and they had to make sure he wasn't near the tracks. We hung there for about 5-7 minutes and the funny thing is, the girl in front of us let us go before her cuz she was waiting on her friends. We laughed. We went on every one of the big rides except the scariest one of all. I was way too chicken. It's this rollercoaster ride that is shaped like an upside down U. You start going straight up and then straight down. It goes up to 128 miles an hour in 3 seconds or something like that. I couldn't do it. I went on all the other rides even though I was so dizzy. Motion sickness comes very easy to me. Thanks mom. ha ha But we had a lot of fun.
I'm super excited because I'm coming home on Thursday!!! I have so much stuff planned already. I am just so excited about seeing everyone. Cam comes home the next Wednesday and we are heading to the beach the next day. YAY for the beach, friends and family.
Well, other than job hunting for something at home, not much else has been going on. Keep ya'll posted when stuff happens.
