We’re moving…

We just found out that we are finally leaving Duncan. I couldn’t be happier we been here for too long. I just about tried every food place, I can try and shopped everywhere, I can shop.

My husband is not so happy about he move. He would rather stay close to his race car. It’s so far away from our cabin (11hrs) and where both sets of our parents (8hrs). It’s further than we’ve ever been from home, but it’s not for very long.

I am excited to be going someplace new. I’m ready for a change as I said before I’m not good at settling in one spot, I get a weird anxious like feeling and I start planning random trips and all I wanna do is go go go! I was planning a trip to Nashville. (Oh believe me we are still going) It’s just going to have to get pushed back a few months.

So we’re headed to Cuero, Texas tomorrow. (It’s in south Tx, close to San Antonio) I’m excited it’s only an hour or so to the beach and there is tons to do all around! Do you have any ideas for us? We’re only going to be there for about 2 months and Dillon even has the weekends off so I need lots of ideas. He’s not good at setting around the camper!

I’d love to have feed back. We need tons of new sights to see, new food to try, and new things to do!

A Little Cabin In The Woods…

In order to explain me and the name, I choose I’ll tell you a little bit about our cabin. It really is a little [tiny] cabin in the woods! Dillon, Logan, and I needed a place to stay when we have our days off! 

{We love you Nannie and Papa D and we appreciate all your hospitality but we needed our own space and so do Y’all!}

Dillon really wanted a great place to hunt. [he could have slept in a deer blind for all he cared]  Now don’t get me wrong, he wanted us to have somewhere nice/safe to stay, but when you’re on the road 85% of the year, it’s hard to maintain and pay for an empty castle! So we settled on a nice piece of land [of course it is good hunting] and we decided on a DIY tiny home!

Since we’re normally on 10 days on 4 days off schedule, we needed something that could be dried in and fast! So we chose a 14×40 Bald Eagle Barn, had it delivered and began building the inside. It’s not done yet [it’s been a slow process] but it’s got water, sewer, electricity, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining room, and a loft room for Logan. We still lack quite a few things in finishing it but we are able to stay in it when we get lucky enough to go home. 

Here is a small slideshow of our hard work.

I love to move around and traveling with Dillon is easy for me, however, I do like to have roots! I like to have a place where we can go and know that we are welcome. Where we know at least 50% of the people and where we don’t have to play the guessing game for restaurants. I love having that in Arkansas. 

IMG_20150527_181700Occasionally we get those jobs we’re D has to work 5 on 2 off. So being 5 hours or more away just doesn’t make it worth the drive to go home. I occasionally get terribly homesick: I [always] miss my best friend, our dirt roads, our creek, and not having a neighbor within spitting distance. [not that I spit on my neighbors] I love traveling but I also love having a home to miss!

We are totally redneck by the way here is a picture of us going through the culverts when the creek was just right. It was a great day at the creek. Since then they did some work to it and you can’t go through them anymore.
