fun facts & best vacations part III

April 20, 2011

First I have to start by saying (or possibly yelling) THANK YOU for the amazing comments I got yesterday on my post. I was a tad nervous about posting all of that but I figured if I was going to be 100% honest and 100% me that means giving it all.  

Thankfully today is a lighter day on the  30 day challenge. Day 6 is to write 30 interesting facts about yourself. Okay I am gonna take the cop-out route here and redirect you guys to my About Page because I listed 100 fun facts about myself there. I love that page because I feel like it so perfectly reflects my personality. So if you want to know some fun things about me, head there.

So moving on. I am going to go ahead and do part III of my best vacations series. Did you miss Part I or Part II? The month of April I am recapping some of mine and Keith’s best vacations in honor of our upcoming 5 year anniversary at the end of the month.

A  little history. Keith and I did the long distance thing for a little over a year. In fact we started our relationship with him living in Dallas, TX and me living in Austin, TX. Dallas is about 3 hours north of Austin. It was H.A.R.D. But like most good things in life it was 100% worth the effort. So for the first 16 months of our relationship we were both taking mini-vacations quite frequently to and from Austin and Dallas.

So here is a slideshow with some pictures from our Dallas and Austin weekenders. Enjoy!

    Those are adorable pictures and you are gorgeous! I’ve never done the distance thing and have mini panic attacks (okay not that bad) everytime Jonathan talks about a job anywhere but here. I know I’d go with him eventually but the thought of getting split up scares me a litte.

      Well just know that if Jonathan and you have do the long distance thing it IS doable if both parties are willing. And both of you would be more than willing. 🙂 It is was definitely hard but it made us a very strong couple who knows exactly what we mean to one another. 🙂

    Love the slideshow! I’ve tried the long distance thing…one worked, but we eventually broke up..the other failed miserably.

    Totally forgot about Kendra!! Have you heard from her at all? And I don’t think I need to answer the question about long distance. 😉 You lived through it with me!! But it totally blows, I 100% agree!

      I haven’t talked to Kendra in years but I kind of keep up with her via Facebook. She still lives in Giddings…she’s a teacher…and is still married to CJ. They just had their first child last year (a little girl). Haha…guess I know more than I thought. Gotta love Facebook.

    I am the queen of long-distance. Sometimes I think I prefer long distance, because I get to be independent. 🙂

    I love the pictures Kelly! You and Keith look so happy. I’m glad it all worked out for the two of you!

    Love, love, love the slide show! You and Keith just make me smile, your smiles are contagious! T and I did the long distance thing for over a year, me in OR and him in AZ. It was a love/hate thing. Love the mini-vacations, but hated the time apart.

    I’m trying to remember a time when I wasn’t doing long distance. Haha. Cute pics!

    I love the slideshow! You guys look so happy in your pictures. 🙂

    I’ve never done the long distance thing. I mean, I did have one relationship that was maintained almost entirely over the phone, but that was simply because he didnt care enough to spend time with me. For obvious reasons, it didnt work out.

    Such cute pictures! You two are seriously such an adorable couple 🙂

    I didn’t read my blogs yesterday so I haven’t read your post yet. I’ll have to go back and check it out. I love the photos of you guys. Me and The Man did the long-distance thing, too. I lived in MA and he was in MD. We spent a crazy amount of time on the phone, but I think we learned so much more about each other that way. All we could do was talk for hours and hours so I knew everything about him by the time I closed the gap and lived in Philly, which was only 2 hours or so from Baltimore.

    I did the long distance for a while with my longest relationship. It worked out ok because we’re both pretty independent. Granted, the relationship didn’t work out, but it wasn’t because of that- it’s not really a deal breaker for me. 🙂
