Oh blog friends…
It’s been a hot minute… and a lot has happened since my last post.
I mean… let’s talk about just how badly this process aged him… before his final interviews^^ and after is below….
JUST KIDDING….. but really do you remember that job with Chick-fil-A Kyle was applying for?
Yeah…. HE GOT IT!! You can watch our vlog (and the moment it happened here)
After that we did lots of walking and planning and PACKING!
It’s truly incredible how much stuff you can accumulate over a year haha! We got to donate or bless others with a lot of the bigger things (furniture, etc.) so that made it worth it!
blessed by our sweet Iowa friends!
^ a clue about our first stop!
After getting back to NC, Kyle and I took a MUCH needed trip to TN….. alone to prepare for our new life of full-time travel with Chick-fil-A for 2+ years!
We also spent lots of time catching up with our family!
Next, we dropped Kyle off at the airport so that he could head down to ATL for a week of BaseCamp at Chick-fil-A!
Kyle had a cute surprise waiting for him in his hotel room haha!
Later that week, my family then took us to Atlanta to meet Kyle so that we could fly to our next stop! We stopped at Clemson (of course) and then went to tour Chick-fil-A headquarters!
It was so surreal to be able to tour this place. So much awesomeness happens here, but I’ve prayed so much for my husband as he has been inside these buildings for interviews, to finally tour there was such a gift!
^ praying I will get to see my husband sitting at this desk signing for his own restaurant one day 😉
it’s bright outside, like our future hahaha
After the tours and enjoying a meal at The Dwarf Grill we said goodbyes…
and then we split up on the plane. Me in the roomier class, but with a lap child, and Kyle in the back with Tristan and his questions and observations about everything… Who do you think had the more peaceful flight?
Then we made it to our first assignment and got to reveal it to everyone– it was SUCH a perfect spot for us 😉 Scranton, PA area *blares The Office theme for weeks*
Then our stuff arrived! We stayed in a studio room for the first little bit. We did not ask about an upgrade, because we were just so stinking happy to finally be on the adventure… Gratitude is blinding yo! However, an awesome CFA person one day was like “uhh ask for the upgrade” haha so we did! <3
STILL so many sweet memories were made in this smaller room. I can’t believe we are finally doing this!
From there I decided to start a weekly vlog series! Here’s a link to the playlist where you can watch adventures from Week 1-4 (included a trip to NYC)
And here are some random pictures from PA..
and from our sweet trip to New York City!
Going forward on this journey (and after I catch up on Months 2 + 3), I plan to keep up with this adventure on the blog on a monthly basis! I’ll link up our weekly vlogs and share more photos and stories too! I also want to post more frequently about specific things that are important to us, like travel tips we pick up as a family, homeschool hacks, mama life, and more!
This has been a fun change of pace for us all, and I’m really loving this journey of being a “stay-at-hotel-mama” 🥰
Thank you so much for reading this whole thing.. Your time means the world to Kyle and I <3
