Pictures :)

I have had many requests for me to show my home and other Korean coolness.... So this entry is alot like my favorite book... Lots of pics and few words :P Lets get started!

This is living room. The large white thing in the back of the room is our air conditioner/heater. I don't really care for it because it's just a plain eye sore. The two windows lead to our deck. It allows you to people watch, which is definitely my fave past time!

Front door, small dog, extra furniture, leading to the kitchen...

Again... extra furniture. I look like I'm running a soup kitchen.

My tiny Korean oven:c) cute... but not practical.

Coffee station. Totally could run Starbucks outta biz!

Tyler's think tank :)

Our bathroom.

Our room. Cozy :)

Office. So now that I've taken you on the grand tour, I hope you enjoyed it btw. Im going to show you some pics that I've taken around town. Seoul is very hard to photograph, so please bear with me.

Pictured above are bugs you can snack on while walking around the zoo. Not for me, but I always wonder how they get so darn many? Are they're bug traps... It's a mystery...

This guy has lots of different popcorn and cereal type stuff. My Dad would love it!
This last one is basically what the entire city looks like. It's the 2nd largest in the WORLD, so it tends to get a little crowded. You get accustom to shoving. I know it's odd but you really don't even notice it after a while. Well kids thats it from me tonight. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I absolutely cannot wait to see you all in the coming months!

Much LOVE!

Exciting news!

I have the best news! I get to go HOME! woot! I talked to Tyler about it and he agrees that going home and seeing my friends and family would be good for me. I am planning on coming home in Jan after the holidays. I am sooo excited! My flight will be an all day occurrence but well worth it.

Ok now that I got that out of my system... a few other things have happenend since last post. Missy got spayed on the 5th, which is good but I felt so sorry for her :( She walked like a little drunk. She came home at 12:30p and didn't wake up until 9p! She was, for lack of a better word, pathetic. But all is well now and she is back to her old self :)

We got the door fixed finally! It was letting in a severe draft for about 2 weeks before anyone came out to fix it. Needless to say I was definitely drinking lots of hot cocoa and coffee during those rough 2 weeks. Tyler was sweet enough to try and bring home wood for us to burn in our awesome fireplace, but it was wet cedar ;) I told him I couldn't burn it because #1 it's cedar and sparks waayyy too much and could cause a fire and #2 it's wet. But it was the thought that counted.

On November 10, Tyler, Lt. Grines, Cpt. Grines, Elizabeth and I all participated in the 10k walk for breast cancer awareness. Before the walk Tyler and I ate breakfast at Charley's and got some fuel to get started! It was 6.2 miles but I did it and felt great in the end. I did however forget my sim card for my camera. That made me really irritated. But when I got home I took a pic of me and my metal.

Today is baking day! Tomorrow is the company Thanksgiving and I was asked to participate so I'm making 2 apple butter pumpkin pies, a spiral ham and 2 green bean casseroles! The apple butter pumpkin pie is new so here's hoping! but can you really go wrong with apple butter??? Hopefully we have a nice turn out and it actually gets started ON TIME! Oh how I love the Army. So I guess that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

*Had to put a messy kitchen pic! :)
