Giveaway winner!

Hello all!

I'm back from my wedding and honeymoon!  Sorry it was more difficult than I anticipated to keep up with blogging while in Indonesia, the internet was REALLY spotty over there.  I'm currently going through the trip photos and the wedding photos, so, expect a few posts coming up here pretty shortly with details from both!!

On to other news!  I FINALLY picked a winner for my giveaway!  Sorry it took so long, hubs and I have been super sick since getting back, so we've been taking it easy, and I've pretty much just been sleeping...

Anyway!  The lovely winner of my giveaway is Rebecca Hill!!  Expect to have an e-mail sent out to you, and your prize mailed shortly thereafter :D

I'm off to finish working on my photos and making some posts for you all!

Toodles, lovelies!

traveler's diaries, part one...

So, we have a bit of downtime right now, so I figured I would give you all a quick update on the adventure so far!

We somehow got to Bali earlier than our itenerary told us we would... but, I'm not complaining, because it was still almost 23 hours of flying, not counting time between transfers. By the time we got here, I had thrown up in an airport once, and spilled pineapple juice all over Robyn and I. I was ready to go to sleep.

Not, of course, before we got screwed over by the airport porters. I had told them that we did not need any help with our luggage, but Robyn was half asleep, and engaged them in conversation, which gave them the go ahead to grab our luggage, despite my protests, which resulted in them demanding exorbitant sums of money on the other side of the customs checkpoint. Robyn started handing over all of our money before I yelled that that was enough, and they took off.

We woke up in time for our first Balinese breakfast, which consisted of watermelon, papaya, fried noodles, fried chicken, fried rice, toasy, and croissants. That's basically what all of the breakfasts have consisted of so far. The food has been really good, though!

Our first day consisted mainly of napping, and spending time in the pool. Day two we walked to the beach, and discovered how truly terrifying Balinese sidewalks are (five foot deep ditches covered with precariously placed concrete slabs). We also discovered that it is damn near impossible for pedestrians to cross the street, and have decided that cabbing might be the way to go about getting around here.

Today we woke up super early, and headed to Tanah Lot right after breakfast. It was so beautiful, and totally worth the drive! We even found a taxi driver that drove us there, waited for us, and drove us back for a pretty reasonable fee.

The roads here are crazy... lines are only a suggestion, and there's a million mopeds with two or more people crammed on, stuffed into every lane. I saw a moped with FIVE people on it today...

Well, we're off to enjoy some time in the pool!

Toodles, lovelies!

day 21: my favourite posts

Day 21, Tuesday: A list of links to your favorite posts in your archives.

Hmm... this one is kind of tough for me, because, in a lot of my older posts, the photos have gone missing, for some reason.  I'm not good at blogger, so this could have happened for any number of reasons.

I guess my most favourite post right now is my post about my vows.  Just because I love my vows, and I had so much fun writing them.

I like this post, because it is all about my adventures in customer service, and the crazy ass customers that I attract to myself.

This post is funny, because it talks about my adventures in online dating... and the creepers available in that world.

This post is a fun little story about my run in with "Iggy Pop."

Hmm... I think I'm going to cap it off there... I have a tonne more, but, like I said, a lot of the pictures have gone missing :(

I might still be on an airplane with hubs right now, so, hopefully you'll get a non-pre-planned update from me soon!

day 20: struggling...

Day 20, Monday: Get real. Share something you're struggling with right now.

Hmm... something I'm struggling with... nervousness and anxiety, I suppose.  I had a lot of anxiety going up to the wedding, but it was more like excitement anxiety and excitement nerves.  The same goes for leading up to our honeymoon, too.  It's like my body takes nervousness and excitement, and just amplifies it to the point where it's unbearable to deal with.

I'm also really anxious about finding a job in Korea.  I just really want to get back out there so badly.  I'm not even worried about selling and giving away all my worldly possessions.  It'll be nice to simplify, that's for sure!  I think my biggest concern with moving back to Korea, is how Robyn will do out there.  I'm certain he's going to love it... but, what if he doesn't?  Or even, what if I don't find a job?...

My brain is just filled with so many "what ifs?" that I sometimes fail to just live in the moment... I'm always worrying.  It gives me seriously bad insomnia... I just can't shut my brain off at night.  Blergh!

today is the day...

Today is the day that we leave for Bali!  While hubs and I are on vacation in paradise (for twenty days!), I will be doing updates for you all, here and there, to let you in on what we're doing for our trip!  And, of course, when we get back I'll have a tonne of details and photos for you all, and I'll be announcing the winner of my giveaway!

I'm so excited to see what Bali has in store for us... not so excited for the two days of travel, though!  It'll just be nice to get there and chill out for a few days before our tour of Bali, Lombok, and the Gili Islands :)

I'll be sure to keep you all updated when we have WiFi!

Toodles, lovelies!
