Doesn't feel like home....

We are back in Utah! After 3 of the most amazing months Robb and I have ever had we are back in Provo, but we don't really feel like we are home....We miss China! We highly recommend that any and all of you out there go to China. Save up now and go for at least three weeks. The people in China are amazing and the life there is simple. The flight was LONG and Robb and I got the no sleep sillies and giggles along the way. We totally lucked out with our luggage too! We bought two GINORMOUS suitcases to haul back our treasures and they weighed more than 70 pounds each. So we had four massive cases filled past capacity and it should have cost us 50 dollars per bag because we were over, but some how we didn't have to pay a dime! We were VERY grateful to say the least. On our flight from Vancouver to San Fransisco, there were these older individuals from some foreign country were sitting behind Robb and I. We are DEAD tired and Robb reclined his chair back, and a hand reached forward, tapped him on the shoulder and asked him to sit up. Robb is blown away by her request, but sits up straight as he tries to find a way to sleep. After an hour into the flight, Robb tries to move back 1 inch to find some sort of comfort and the gentleman behind him made a hand gesture for him to sit up. We paid for those seats! There is a reason they recline! AHHHHHHHH! I felt so bad for Robb....we did end up laughing really hard as we came up with different scenarios and what we would have liked to say to these people....
What a great three months. Robb and I grew closer to one another and we loved seeing the world beyond Utah....We can't wait to get back to China in November! Pictures coming soon....

Welcome back! Can't wait to see the pictures! Especially the ones that the Chinese tried "blocking"! Glad you're back in Utah safe!

Glad you guys made it back safe. I'd love to see you if you're ever in SLC.

Amy said...

SO glad you're back! to think, this from the girl who didn't want to go. =P You know you're facing much ridicule from Garth when you go back, right? hehe.

See you next week. NO EXCUSES! Do you remember how to pirouette?

Kory said...

Welcome back! So you're heading back out there in Nov? I'm jealous, we're stuck in Provo for awhile.

Amy said...

Oh man I can't believe the nerve of some people! plane politeness needs to be addressed instead of plane safety. On our way back from Mexico, I had a lady literally SIT on my lap the whole way so she could rest her head on her husbands shoulder. She even had the audacity of putting the arm rest up even after I asked her to put it down. The nerve of people! Kory tried to get me to say something to her but I couldn't...

Hi, Annie! I was blog surfing and somehow came across yours. I'm so glad! You are as adorable as ever!

In case you've forgotten me, I'm Alison from Nexpedite. Remember...you told me I reminded you of Molly Shannon (but more because of how I act than how I looked--I think that was supposed to be a compliment?). LOL!

My blog is http://alisonferguson.blogspot.com. Tell your mom and dad, Dave, and Taylor all hi for me!

I'm glad you guys made it back safely. I'm sure it's a culture shock and quite the adjustment being back in Utah. And are you kidding about the people sitting in the back of Robb? I can't believe people. Anyways...just one day at a time my friend getting adjusted back here.

Zach & Jenn said...

Eeww, some people! We're glad you're back. It was so great to see you guys. Lots of LOVE.

duh! that is so annoying about the rude passengers. I was flying from Boston to Salt Lake awhile back...(alone with a baby mind you since Dan couldn't come), and no one was being nice. they would give me glares when the baby would make a peep, and the ronchy lady sitting next to me said when she first saw me sit down, "oh no, i HAVE to sit by the baby, oh well i guess i'll have to deal." hahahah what woman is annoyed by a baby? she's probably never been a mother:) lol.

anyway good luck with the adjustment. glad you had a fun adventure. dan and i love living new places and you're right, it brings you closer together, not to mention it's just fun!
