Back from Houston

We had a great trip to houston, but boy is it good to be back home. I was getting tired of living out of my suitcase, eating out for each & every meal and I was just ready to crawl back into my own bed. This trip was shorter than our last trip to Texas, but we were able to tell almost immediately that we loved Houston better than Austin & San Antonio. We're very spoiled living here in San Diego and we're used to having certain conveiniences around us within a very short radius like grocery stores, Target, Walmart, Costco etc...
Houston had TONS of shopping (and I mean TONS!), with a bigger city feel and with nicer suburbs. One of the things we didnt like in Austin and San Antonio is you still had to drive a distance just to run simple errands. We loved San Antonio for other reasons, but it wasn't convenient for us. So we've decided to make the move to Houston!

So now our plan is we'll finish packing up here, find an apartment & a storage unit in Houston. We'll rent a U-Haul or Penske truck of sorts, and then on Sunday May 24th, Kevin & I will drive out to Houston with all of our belongings. Kevin will drive out with me to help move and unload, and then he will fly back to San Diego to go back to work the following day. So basically once we arrive, I will be in Houston all by myself!!! eee! We still need an income coming in, so Kevin will continue working in California until I find a job in Houston. Then once I find a job, I'll let Kevin know and he'll put in his 2 week notice and fly out to Houston.
There was a small part of me that was telling me I should be nervous about this move, plus being away from Kevin will be tough, but then there's the rest of me thats saying, This is exciting! and not to worry because I'll do just fine on my own! Besides, it's only temporary until I find a job, and Kevin will be out in Houston before I know it. I've had quite a few employers interested in meeting with me, but because I am not in Houston it makes it a little harder to meet with anyone. Plus not to mention, even if I wanted to leave for Houston earlier than scheduled, we're just not ready... I have so much packing to do! Anywho, here's a few photos from our trip :)
