I am in just a fabulous mood this morning.

1). It's Friday.

2). I only have 4 weeks left of school until I begin student teaching!!!

3). We made a last-minute decision last night that Mr. Ruby will be joining me on my drive back to Kansas for Christmas! Let me explain...

First of all, our life is extremely complicated right now. Many things going on. Nothing bad, just complicated. But basically, I was going to drive all the way home for myself. And Mr. Ruby and I were both so bummed about it.

Yes. 1 day and 6 hours. By myself.

(I'll explain stop B in a minute).

Then last night, we decided "WHO CARES about money/complications/the fact that Mr. Ruby has to fly home exactly 2 weeks before X-Mas for a wedding!"

And now, we're making the drive back together. Just like we made the drive up here three years ago. :)

Pit stop from our looong road trip from Dallas to Providence

And even better news? We're stopping in NASHVILLE to pick up my bestie so we can all ride home together!!! Can't get any better than that!

It's going to be one, CRAZY car ride with my two best friends!!! :)

OH wow, that will be the best drive-- especially with your BFF in tow too! Our 6 (sometimes 8) hour drive home to Kansas in nothing compared to yours, wow! My folks are coming to visit us for Christmas this year. But for Thanksgiving we have a suprise planned to be home for the weekend when we've told my dad that we're staying in Minnesota. My mom and sister are in on the surprise and I can NOT wait!! :-D

Awesome news for you this Friday, I can totally relate!!
