Vacation Has Started!!

Yesterday evening I made it back to my childhood home in West Virginia, and my heart could not be happier.  There’s just something about coming home that just makes everything better.  I’m so thankful because my husband got to come with me this time as well, it doesn’t always happen that way because of his work schedule.

Last night we ate a delicious dinner with my parents, and it was nice to catch up with them the rest of the evening.  We gave them, their Christmas present and it was so nice, they LOVED it!!  So this whole week will be filled with giving my family their presents, and spending time with them.

Currently, I’m sitting on my bed, going through everyone’s youtube videos and catching up with what I’ve missed.  I’m not going to lie, I’ve just been awful at support through watching,  It breaks my heart, because I go on and on about how important support is, but I’m failing at my own pep talk.

I brought my dog & cat with me as I usually do, and my sweet Indy kitty is laying on the foot of my bed right now and he’s such a precious thing.  I think he’s happy to be back home too.  My mom has 2 kitties, so they play with each other, and it’s adorable.

I’m going to lunch soon with my cousin & hubby.  I’m driving up to WVU’s campus, which isn’t far from where I live.  It’s the first day of the spring semester, so I’m not quite sure what is going through my head right now, lol!  The traffic is just going to be crazy, with everyone there!  Luckily, I’m just picking her up, and then we are going to Chick-Fil-A!!  The best food ever created!!!!  I cannot wait!! 😉

It’s really just nice to sit and relax and not have to go anywhere or do anything.  I guess that’s why I just associate going back home, with going on ‘vacation’.

Well there’s just a super small blog for you!  I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about, but just wanted to say hello!

Hope you are having a great day!!

Thanks for reading!

What you should know before moving to my city! Blogtober day 4.

This post is actually more difficult for me than it would be for most people.  You see, I’ve only lived where I’m at now in Indiana for 3 1/2 years.  I also work 40 hours a week, so I’m still having trouble finding time to explore my city I live in.  However I feel I could list 100 things about my hometown in West Virginia!  So what I want to do is split up my list and do 5 things for W and 5 things for WV.  I hope you don’t mind!

5 things to know about Fairmont, WV!

  1. If you want the best pepperoni roll ever, go to Country Club Bakery!  They are the original pepperoni roll, and nothing can beat them!
  2. Muriales Restaurant is the best Italian restaurant that you will ever dine at!  Trust me, I’ve gone to other places thought the US, but NOTHING compares to Muriales!
  3. One of the most fun things about living in WV is that just taking an average drive through country roads, can show you the most beautiful views where you can see for miles and miles.  You will never be disappointed.
  4. Here’s another restaurant, Colasessano’s Pizza is heaven sent pizza!  We actually had our rehersal dinner there for our wedding.  It’s my favorite pizza place ever!  We have a lot of Italian heritage in my hometown, so Italian food is always amazing.
  5. There’s a big high school rivalry in my hometown.  We have 3 high schools in my county, but 2 are huge rivals!  West side & east side.  I’m a west sider, and obviously we are the best side!!  The last high school football game of the year is the East-West game and it’s the big one.  I think I’m actually going to be in town for it this year, and it’s the first time I’ve been able to go back since I graduated in 2010.  I’m looking forward to it!

5 things to know about Warsaw, IN!

  1. There are more Mexican restaurants than actual restaurants it seems like, but I’m not complaining, Mexican food is my all-time favorite!
  2. If you don’t get stopped by a train while driving downtown, you’re one of the lucky ones.
  3. There are 103 lakes in my county overall.   So lots of water sports you can do!  They have boat rentals, canoe rentals, kayak rentals all over the place!  I personally love to paddle board myself!
  4. Every first Friday of every month, there is a little festival downtown that celebrates local business, restaurants and just brings the community together!  They are so fun!
  5. We are the orthopedic capital of the world!  If you need a hip, we got you covered!

As you can see, I know my hometown better than where I live now, but I’m working on it.  I believe a future blogtober post is something else about where you live, so I’m going to dive deeper into discovering my town where I live now.

Thanks so much for reading!  Again, let me know if you’re doing blogtober too in the comments, I’d love to read yours!
