O' Christmas Tree

We decided to get a real tree!!  We headed to Lowes and picked a little tree (you can tell by how big Rufus looks next to it)!!  This was John's first real tree!  







Thanksgiving 2011

We spent Thanksgiving in Mobile.  Blake came to visit us and we had lots of fun!





We bought the turkey from The Shed and it was delicious!

Bark Park

Rufus loves the Bark Park!













Stoneridge at Somerby

Our new apartment and first home together!



Rufus loves to go on walks around the apartment.  The complex has a lot of land and it's own Bark Park!  The apartment came furnished and was set up with everything so it was an easy move.

John's new job

After the honeymoon we headed to California for John's new job at Chevron!  The headquarters are located in San Ramon so we are able to visit San Francisco!



We spent about a week in California before heading to Mobile, Alabama where will be living for the next 6 months.

Honeymoon Highlights

I realized we never put any pictures from the honeymoon on the blog.  I have not been keeping up with posts and promise I will be better from now on.  So here is some catching up...













We really enjoyed our hotel in Turks and Caicos The Windsong.  We were so lucky that the reef was right in front of the hotel for easy snorkeling every day.  We saw tons of beautiful fish and a Barracuda!!  It was a very relaxing trip!  Hurricane Emily threatened to hit while we were there but it ended up fading away and was not a problem.  Some of our favorite places were Da Conch Shack, Somewhere Bar and Grill, and Coco Bistro.  We promised to go back on our 10 year Anniversary!

Mobile, Alabama

We are settling in to our place in Mobile, we like it a lot!  John is loving his job and I have been volunteering and substituting at a school down the street.  People have pretty thick accents, I can already see mine getting a little thicker.

We just received an email with our possible second rotation location choices:
Kazakhstan
Thailand
Scotland
Australia
Venezuela
Angola

We have to give our top 3 by October 15th.  Before we know it we will be moving on to another adventure!

We miss everybody!!

John- "most of the people here look like they stink"
We are back in Berkeley and freezing! We failed to pack correctly, I guess the heat stroke we were about to have in houston clouded our judgement.

Thursday, August 18, 2011

The movers are here packing everything up! We head tomorrow to California for John's training week, then head to Mobile Alabama next weekend!
