Live from our Texas Honeymoon.

Kidding.

We're not on a honeymoon (obviously you know that) but last week I kept saying to John, "this feels like our honeymoon" because it was like we were on vacation and it was fun. This week feels a bit more like...a prison, haha. Kidding again, but it's just not been as fun. John had this whole week off too and we've mostly gotten bored. But I think it's a good bored. I'm always for rest time in-between big life changes so I think it was important to take a few weeks off. Especially for him. Last time we did a big job switch we ran away to Europe for a month and it totally rejuvinated us and took our stresses away. This time we couldn't really do something that extreme, but two weeks to just relax was perfect.

Maybe the reason it feels like we're on vacation though is this??


Like, how amazing is this pool? It's basically two pools, with two different areas to sit IN the water, which I love. So we actually chose this place because it's the "sister" to the last apartment we had in Texas. We loooved it there. And so far, we looove it here too. We only went to the pool together once, last Sunday and John who REFUSES to wear sunscreen (I think I've talked about this before lol) got SUPER burnt so all this week he's been on like house arrest and hasn't left because he won't go in the sun, lol. I'm not even allowed to touch him. Like, if I get too close to him he backs away like, "don't come near me." Which is really hard for me because I like to squeeze/hug him about 100 times a day. But anyways, I have been enjoying taking Ted for nice long walks around here and the pool and the sun and getting a tan because I wear sunscreen...

And while I do all of that John's been binge watching this show called Black Sails. Anyone ever heard of it? I told him I bet no one has ever heard of it so that's why I'm asking, haha. I haven't really been watching, but from what I gather it's about pirates...and is basically porn. I think it's on Showtime...so, go figure. Every time I catch a clip I'm like, "what the hell?" Lol. He feels kind of bad because I don't think he's watched TV (besides Game of Thrones, Teen Mom, our usuals) in like six months but I keep reminding him that until recently all I did was binge watch shows, so not to feel bad. I've been getting back into my workout routine, so I've been busy (busy is a joke of a word, but it keeps me occupied I should say) with that this week. I'm REALLY going to go hard at this now that we're settled again, so get ready for a lot of fitness related posts. 

OH, and Johns other hobby since he's been home this week has been tracking down the UPS man. We did a bunch of online shopping last week (new work stuff for him...non work stuff for me lol) and this is how well John does with having nothing to do, he's literally been OBSESSED with tracking these packages. We put them in my name (always do) and every hour he'll ask "hey can you check those tracking numbers? hey have you gotten any emails on those packages? where are they?" He was in the bathroom the other day, with the door open not like GOING TO the bathroom, and a Fedex truck drove by and his ears perked up and I started laughing because I knew what was coming...he peeks his head out and goes, "hey did you hear that?" I was like, "sorry John, just Fedex" lol. 


And not online, but he got new cowboy boots!! This was huge because he pretty much ruined his living in the Carolinas because of the clay and are now all orange colored, so he really wanted/needed new ones and I kept telling him he should treat himself to celebrate his new job. (I'm the worst, I'll tell everyone to treat themselves to everything always, lol.) He keeps joking about me getting some and I'm like, no. If I ever get cowboy boots, someone slap me. (It's bad enough I say the occasional "ya'll.")


But sort of honeymoon-ish, we did treat ourselves to massages last week! We thought after the drive here we deserved it. I texted John from the locker room to send me a robe selfie, but I got nothin lol. 



And in little Teddy bear news, he got a new "outfit" AKA collar. We thought he needed a fresh start too. When it came in the mail (not UPS lol) we got all excited about it and I think he was a bit disappointed when this was it, haha. Another funny John story because this is our honeymoon after all - so John was in the other room and I was with Ted and I don't really filter myself I just talk like no one's listening and I was like, "AW Ted you're so cute in your new outfit. You're like a whole new dog. Sometimes I look at you and for a second it doesn't even look like you." And then John comes behind me and goes, "But Mom it's still me!" HAHAHA. Maybe it's only funny if you're me, but I died laughing. (^ PS: Johns wearing a long sleeve shirt and jeans because of his sunburn, haha. PS: IT'S HOT HERE. TOO HOT FOR THAT.) 


And we did check out a new dog park for Ted and that was a success. Lots of nice dogs, shady (as in lots of treeees), and a giant swimming pond. Ted had a great time. Unfortunately John and I both ended up getting a little beat up, lol. John slipped on some rock or something and cut his foot and then a GIANT horse dog ran into the back of my leg and bruised the shit out of me. This picture doesn't even show it, but it's like black bruised around that little scratch. Not sure why I needed to share that, but documenting useless things is kind of my specialty. 


Then in more useless news, we did drive around the other day and I took some pictures. So we don't live "in" Dallas, we're definitely out in the suburbs (where we like to be) so this is as close as I've got. My first thought of Dallas when we drove in initially was...construction. EVERYWHERE. Like every single highway we've been on is under some kind of construction. I was like, "no wonder you were so in demand out here John" lol. (No he doesn't do roads, but still funny joke.) So after we drove like 3 miles an hour around town, I was glad we live where we live. 



And this is just because construction or not, I missed the highways here. They do them right. And pretty. With stars. 

So clearly this isn't really a honeymoon. It just feels like it in the sense that we've spent two whole weeks together doing a whole bunch of nothing. And clearly we've never been on a honeymoon if that's what we think one is, haha. But sometimes doing nothing is the best. And it's still not over...we've got the rest of the weekend too! We've got plans for a date night tonight (the search is ON to find the best Mexican food) and plans to hit the dog park again Sunday. And then, it's back to real life. Like, REAL LIFE this time. Like...time for Morgan to figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life? This is a big source of...stress and emotions for me. I've been sort of putting it out of my mind, but it's gotta get figured out. I think I may write about it soon though...so wait for it. (If you want to read about my life that is. No pressure ever.) And still hoping to work on this blog soon...it needs changes. But that's also a source of stress so I avoid it, haha.

Until later...xx

  1. That pool looks like heaven. It is kind of weird how you like desperately want the weekends to be longer but then when you have enough time off but no plans you're like, "What the heck do I do now?!"

    1. Lol yes. Why is that?!?! I mean I love laying around...and being home...and I hate working...but then I'm home and feel like I need to work? And I always have this image of super fun weekends in my head that in reality are always soooo boring lol.

  2. I want you to write the blog about what's coming next in your life! I laughed about the part where John pretended to be Ted. I love that pool there! I'm glad we have a pool at our condo, but it kind of sucks. Thankfully, it's almost never crowded, but there are so many trees. I think two weeks of nothing to do with Jon at home would be WONDERFUL! After moving, I'm sure it's nice to have that down time! Moving is so stressful! I really need to go eat because I'm getting hangry, but just so you know, I just read your about me blurb and liked it. It sounds like my blog, haha.

  3. You are making me homesick for Texas. Also, I thought John talking for Ted was funny but maybe because Travis does voices for every inanimate object/random human.

    1. Lol well if it makes you feel better, you make me want to move away too. I have talked to John about you guys multiple times like, "they live in AUSTRALIA ISN'T THAT COOL? WE SHOUULD DO THAT." Lol. But we are happy to be back here. It feels right somehow. And I'm glad you got that Ted voice. It was just so funny because he's never done it and was basically making so much fun of me lol. (and now he keeps doing it because I laughed so hard lol.)

  4. That pool looks amazing- I can't imagine having daily access to it, what a great perk of your new place! I can kind of relate to John's obsession with waiting for packages-- I was totally like that around the holidays when a lot of things were coming in, and it's so disappointing when you hear the UPS truck and it's just a bus or not for you! haha. I hope you guys enjoy the last few days you have off together this weekend.

    1. Lol oh I totally looooooove getting packages, like I always have to have something "on the way" lol. But he is just bored. He is one of those people who doesn't know what to do at home while I can always think of 500 things I need to get done. Thank you so much for the well weekend wishes, hope yours is going good too!!!! xo

  5. It really looks like y'all are having a blast on your new move! I went to Dallas for two weeks (on my own, my first time on a plane ever! I was so scared) and I really loved it out there. I was in Arlington, really, but I did make a day-trip to Dallas and completely SOBBED at the mark of JFK's assassination. But I 100% recommend eating at the food truck park in Dallas (I got a philly at Steak Me Home Tonight, and it's pet friendly!), and Lockhart's for the brisket.
