New Name, New Life

so I've changed the name....was kinda sad to see "Joanna does Dublin" go, but been there done moving on! Haven't posted in a while cause things have been nuts and don't seem to be slowing down. The official job hunt has started, so be thinking of us! We are headed to Little Rock this weekend for my college friends annual get together! Looking forward to see people I haven't seen in a year! Pics below are some of what we've been up to so far!

Richy and I did a mini tree with our first ornaments from friends in Ireland..thanks Lucy,
Mc Cuskers, and Tullys
I have to say he has done far better than I ever did in Ireland! :)
The lights on the Fayetteville Square
Tacky Christmas sweater party with friends.
At a U of A basketball game! Richy's first ever game of Basketball! There wasn't a packed house but it was fun all the same!
wooo pig!

and just like that....

And just like that.....we were in America! After...5 months of waiting, 1 month of goodbyes in Dublin, 1 month of goodbyes in Armagh, 10 suitcases, 2 passports, 1 packet of visa paperwork, a few tears, 14 hour journey with a 2 minute nap...... we made it! Just back to Fayetteville this evening and I have to say there is no place like home!

The plan of attack is to get settled, fill out the mountain of paperwork still required for Richy on this side of the Atlantic, take care of wedding stuff, and most importantly find jobs! We are completely open to going anywhere for jobs so the adventure continues!

I have loads of posts to catch up on from our last month in Dublin! Things were so busy and hectic there at the end that I thought I'd wait til we were stateside...

Can't really call the blog "Joanna does Dublin" anymore...any suggestions?
