Goodbye Omaha, Hello Savannah

Whew, this week has been a crazy one!!! 

I moved us out of our house in Omaha, Nebraska and to my Momma's in Savannah, Georgia. 

 Goodbye Omaha!

Many of you know we are an Air Force family. My husband has been in Texas for training the past 3 1/2 months (and has 2 more months left there) We are moving to Germany in September. (SO EXCITED!) We own a home in Omaha and the easiest thing to do was to move here with my mom while my husband finishes his training. This way we can get our house rented before we move to Germany.

Thankfully my mom came and helped me with the move. My mom flew to Omaha on Wednesday afternoon and helped me get everything ready for the movers to come. Friday all my stuff got packed up, Saturday they loaded it all on trucks, Saturday night and Sunday morning we cleaned the house from top to bottom (including cleaning all the carpets) and tied up all the loose ends in Omaha. Sunday we left Omaha around 11am and drove for about 10 hours.
Monday we drove another 12 hours and finally arrived at my Mom's around 9:15 pm.

We had 2 dogs, a cat and a 20 month old in the car with us. Needless to say we stopped a lot and listened to a LOT of Justin Bieber!

 (Ariana with her Justin Bieber CD we bought her for the trip. Her favorite is "Baby". We seriously played it like 50 times, I swear!)

 (The one time we actually got out of the car at a rest area to eat. The whole time we ate in the car and kept on driving.)

***If I can figure out how to get videos off my phone on onto the computer I have the funniest thing I think I've ever seen in my life. Anybody have any suggestions on how to get them onto my computer?? When I email them, it won't let me open them??

In the end, a toy from a kids meal provided entertainment for us and the truck drivers we passed!! :)

(Excuse my crazy hair. I was a hot mess and the shower at the hotel was the worst. I'm in serious need of a salon FOR REAL but just didn't have the time before the move.)

I'm glad to finally have gotten here safe and sound. I feel like it will take me a few days to recover and get settled in.



Pin It!


  1. Glad you made it safe and sound. Luv the glasses. I can see why the truckers loved them. Miss you lots....

  2. Arianna's so adorable! To think she already has a favourite (Justin Bieber) at such a young age. Cool~

    Am excited about your move. Hope you'll adjust well! :)

  3. Wow, that's pretty intense. I was looking at a pontential cross-country move, but we only have a cat. No dogs, no kids. Anyway, where in Germany will your husband be stationed? I was born there actually, and still have a lot of family over there.

  4. ha ha ha. so cute... what an adventure... Justin Bieber, huh? so awesome! :)

  5. Holy eventful mama! Sounds like everything works out, go rest up and come back to show us those videos! :)

  6. Wow, glad your momma came to help you move! What a big task that was :) I bet it's nice to be around family while you are missing your hubby. But yay, only 2 more months until you see him again!!


  7. wow exciting things happening!
    and yay for moving to Germany soon. Wir freuen und schon auf euch :D (= We're happy to have you here soon)

  8. I lived in Germany for several will really like it there, beautiful country and countries surrounding it.

    Congrats on the move!!
