So it's that time of year again when I can make PUMPKIN cookies anytime I want
Well, not that one couldn't make them any other time, I'm just saying now is the acceptable time to have said pumpkin cookies or anything pumpkin for that matter
What better time to make them than on HALLOWEEN!
Such a fun time of year when all the holiday festivities begin and the creativeness in me gets to craft all the fun stuff I have saved on Pinterest. 
The cookies are yummo
...only bad thing is...
I've already eaten
 {I can feel a stomach ache coming on already}
Good thing there is a gym 3.5 minutes away by foot
I'll be needing it
Look at all the candy too
I'm in trouble  

 Shaynold and I even got to put together this fun puzzle the other day
I put in the very last piece....of course, because I rock
or maybe he LET me put it in, oh well.
Either way it was fun to find all the pieces TOGETHER
when he wasn't being a puzzle hog that is
I love that word: together
I'm so happy and lucky to have the chance to be here with him everyday
He seriously has the coolest job!
I seriously have the coolest man
I mean not everyone gets to fly jets everyday
not everyone gets to see and hear jets take off a dozen times a day
This is my home
He is my home

Welcome Back to Korea!

Korea and I meet again
"Annyong haseyo"
It's been almost a year since I was here before.
Let me say that again...It's been almost a YEAR since I was here before.
Can you believe that?!?
 And what a year it has been. I survived...WE survived and I am so proud of US!
Long Distance is:
a time to grow
spending time with friends & family
missing them
Which ever adjective you choose to use
I didn't think I'd actually ever say that, but it's true.
Shayne and I have gone through a lot this year, but I honestly couldn't be more thankful for the lessons I've learned along the way.
I have him to thank really
He was always so patient with me and loved me even on the days I didn't deserve it.
I wish I could say I was a perfect girlfriend/finace that never got upset or mad at him, but HELLO this is not a perfect world and you better believe there were days when I was a monster.
And you know what I realized during those days?
Was how much we have grown together and truely love one another.
Crazy huh?!
So many AWESOME things have happened in the last 13 months too!
Many blog posts to come? I think YES!
In the mean time
Meet The Green Jap
Yep, that's's a right drive Korea, Craz balls.
Meet my old school DAK phone
{I wish I could tell you what that means, but if any Koreans just happen to read this they might hunt me down}
It totally doesn't even have T-9 texting. I have to type out each letter!!!
Blasphemy, I tell you.
But at least I don't have auto correct fail, like I do with my iPhone.
Let's talk soon
