Gentri Lee: Since I've Been Home

Since I've Been Home

It's hard to come back to reality after such wonderful adventures. I've been home a week and have not made many efforts to have a social life again. I just... ble. haha! Here are the hi lights of  my first week being home...

1. my room. Mmmm. :) I did miss my room.
2. It was my hometown's birthday yesterday. They have many awesome activities and celebrations including a "Toddler Trot". It's a race for kids 5 and under. My niece and nephew participated. They were awesome. :)
3. I've played dominoes twice in one week... that's unheard of... It's hard enough for me to play once.
4. A little boy was selling drinks at the parade yesterday...er, he was selling them an hour before it started... when no one was there yet. He was dragging his feet with exhaustion within the first few minutes.

Another hi light? My sisters cat... He's always all up in my face! Or climbing around the computer desk so I can't work properly. Tsk Tsk (yes I'm aware our computer is a dinosaur. Dont judge).

Then I watched the fireworks from my house. I loved having my music playing in the background, being snuggly with my sister's dog Zeus and other sister's cat- Rue.... Why don't I have a pet?! Sad realization... ANYWAYS, here's one of the songs I was listening too...


Another hi light which I don't have pictures of would be our BBQ we had with some of our best family friends the other night. I love all of them so much and it was so much fun to catch up!

Other than that, life has been...

zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
*faceslamsdesk*
Huh? Wha?
Oh... I was dreaming I was back in Alaska...

Jk. I am really happy and blessed to be home. I just miss that lifestyle! Who wouldn't?!

If you haven't entered my Alaska Giveaway's yet, well, there's only ONE still open! So enter before midnight!! HURRY! The winners will be announced Tuesday! :D

Being home is always hard after such fun adventures. But it is also nice and relaxing I bet.

I love Alpine Days! So sad I'm missing them!!

Alisha said...

My cat does the same exact thing. I can never get anything productive done when he's in my lap.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Oh funnnnn! I wish I could have seen you last week! I literally had no time to see anyone and was driving nonstop because I was so far north! I will be back in October sometime so we need to plan something! And for some reason one of your pictures didn't load, weird? Haha.

I love your sister's kitty! My cat does that too - all over the desk when I'm working! So funny.

Coming home from vacation and entering back into real life is always a drag! I had the blues pretty bad when I came home from Arizona in March. Mostly because I came home to rain after being in the beautiful sun for an entire week!

k your sister's cat is way too cute! It's nice to come home to your own room isn't it after a long trip. Love the instagram photos. I've figured out how to use it sort of, thank you for your help!

When I came home from Tunisia, it also took me a whole week to get anything done. It is so weird to come home from a vacation.

And the little corner of your room in the picture looks so pretty!!

Grace said...

Dear, I know how you feel!
When I came back from London I was sooo depressed (much with hating my city) :| Hope you get back in track soon!! :) Your room looks cool!

SaffaKate said...

Woohoo for being home. "Bleh" weeks are always called for at first.

Ashley {hudson's happenings} said...

FUN FUN! I am glad you made it home safely. Those firework pictures are AWESOME! Hope your "bleh" time ends soon. ;)

Laura Elizabeth said...

Aw, it's always hard to settle back into 'real life' isn't it? Hope you find your feet again soon.

Snuggling with animals is the best!!!

Emma Frances said...

That itty bitty picture of your room is super cute! I wanna see the rest. :) And it looks like you're still having some fun even though it's not Alaska! I know the feeling though, after just a week in Oregon this summer I had no desire to get back to boring AZ life.

Amanda said...

Thanks for visiting my blog! :)

I always have that conflict of being happy and sad to be home after an awesome trip. I just start planning my next vacation. Haha

Oh and thanks for reminding me of dominoes! I haven't played dominoes in forever!
