Our Life in Bags…Again

If you've followed my blog for a while you'll know that when we started this life, one of my first blog posts was called Our Life in Bags. I thought it was only fitting that at the start of this new journey I would start with the exact same topic, with some tips and tricks, I've learned along the way. As a disclaimer, some of the links in this blog may be affiliate links... but I promise I love all the items I'm recommending and personally own them myself! The first set of movers came and they took 1,000[...]

The Beginning… Life in Lithuania.

It's been a week since we arrived in Vilnius, Lithuania. I can't believe I'm typing that... it's crazy how quickly time flies when you're having fun and trying to figure out life in a different country. Our first week looked like Moving into our new house! We got super lucky and were able to be picked up at the airport and moved right into our new house. Our air shipment was actually waiting for us in our garage! We had great sponsors they packed our frig full of great food and brought some things ove[...]

Gilroy’s U-Pick Cherries

Today the boys and I went on an adventure to Gilroy, CA U-pick cherries. We've been strawberry and apple picking many times, but we've never been cherry picking. So when I saw the advertisement for U pick cherries I loaded the boys up and headed to Gilroy. (If you're new to Monterey that's about a 45-minute drive to Gilroy) This is the first time that this farm has offered U-Pick Cherries and they'll be open the next two weekends Thursday-Sunday (June 20-23) and (27-30) at 5920 Frazier Lake, Gilroy CA mak[...]

My La Mesa Home

PCS season is here! I thought before moving out of my house I would give a quick tour of the Cofete floorplan in La Mesa and on Fort Ord. We have lived in this house as a family of four and as a family of five and I can honestly say that it fit our needs perfectly! My Favorite things about this floor plan I loved that this house had two wings, having the two wings really make this house feel a lot larger than it really is. It's a great floor plan to host parties or have a room designed just fo[...]

McAnally Life Update

The McAnally Life Cliff Notes... So much has happened... I'll be honest since we moved from Ljubljana, Slovenia back to Monterey, California I needed a life break! I put my blog on the back burner and I focused on my career, family, and had a baby. In November 2017 we moved back to Monterey, California from Ljublijana, Slovenia. We thought this was the best place to move our children back to after a year of living abroad. We also knew we'd have friends from previous duty stations also getting stat[...]

A Taste of The States

 We've lived in Slovenia now exactly 2 months! As I've said before, living here is really not that difficult. I have however found myself missing things that are very common in The United States but not so common in Slovenia. You can only imagine how happy I was to finally have some things that I've missed in a care package from my mom and mother in law.  It was basically Christmas in our house on Wednesday, and I may have almost cried! Ha  Below is a list of common things in The United States[...]
