That Time I Moved...

TO OKLAHOMA!!!

I know, big move right? 16 hours later, I'm officially a resident of Native America. So now, my new car, my fattie dog, and my person now currently reside in the better side of the Oklahoma-Texas line! Prince Charming was excited! And I can't even handle life right now I'm so pumped!!!

I know we're all supposed to pack up and leave the nest eventually, but this just seems like something that doesn't happen in my family. And now I get to say I flew from the nest! Go me!

In addition to getting to see Prince Charming everyday, I get to finally experience FALL. That one season where the leaves change color and the weather is cooler and it rains, at a normal temperature not like a warm shower. That season where Pumpkin Spice Lattes can be consumed without the need for ice, soup is a regular dinner staple, and the words "sweater weather" actually has something to do with a need to wear a sweater, not just the time of year.

Being from the hottest state in the world, I realized you people take these season changes for granted. You are all so prepared and used to the changes in temp, that you rarely take a second glance at the numbers 45 on my car's degree gauge. This is all so new and I'm so excited! All of those long sleeve shirts I have only worn with shorts to make sure I don't die of heat exhaustion, those sweatshirts I bought from every city I've visited can finally be worn outdoors, not just in my car with the air on full blast. And this is the best part, I think I might actually be able to purchase a pair of winter boots!!!

So this place is great and I love living in the down-home, red dirt, small town, trailer living state that truly makes me feel like my life is a country song. I hope you're all jealous. Things are finally starting to fall into place and in two weeks I will be officially employed for two weeks to help with a futurity horse show and I am BEYOND excited! Wish me luck!

  2. Where did you move from?
    I'm in Texas but moving to back to Ohio in Feb. and I can tell you that the Falls in Ohio are way more amazing than the falls in OK/TX. Also, you can't like anything Texas living in Oklahoma. It's like asking to be hated.

  5. I just moved from Michigan to Georgia.

    No such thing as sweater weather down here.
    My winter boots are so sad in the closet.
    All my cute winter fashion just hanging out, begging to be worn. :/

    Enjoy the season changes for me!! :)

    1. That's a big move! Oh no! That's the worst! I know somehow I have a collection of winter clothes, wasn't sure why until I moved here!

      I will!

  6. haha, I'm totally feeling you as I'm from FL. I went to CO for university, so now I know what I'm missing after I moved back to the home state. Sweaters and boots and hot coffee...it is really good stuff. Enjoy it!

  7. I am still praying and hoping my hubby will want to move at some point. Living in Florida I miss all seasons, but I have to say I'm not a fan of snow unless it's christmas day or every now and than:)

    1. Oh! Me too! Tell him to get there now! It's not worth it living so far away! I may not have any serious plans for the future, but I knew I needed to be with him!

      I feel you! Arizona has nothing either, but a little snow would be nice!
