January 2012 is a long ways away but I wanted all of my family and friends to have ample time to save their money and come visit me and Corey in Germany! Corey just received official orders to Wiesbaden, Germany reporting in January 2012. He is for sure going and now we are working on getting me over there. Since he is Army and I am Air Force, it can get a little confusing with orders and stuff.
The first thing I have to do is wait for May. Unfortunately I didn't get selected for pilot school during the March boards so my packet automatically gets another try in May. I will say that after seeing the results, I may have gone into this a little optimistic. Basically, it will be a miracle from heaven if I get picked up. With that said, at least I tried and will never have to wonder.
So, once I get the final word on my packet, I will either be going to Alabama for 18 months and Corey will still be going to Germany or I will be trying to accompany him there and we will be there for 3 years. This is your official invitation to come and visit Europe with a free place to stay in centrally located Germany. I love traveling and I love having visitors so come to our home and we will travel with you and all of my dreams will come true. I am so excited and can't wait to see every country over there.
I hope everyone takes me seriously when I say that my home will literally be a free hostel for you to stay at (if I already know you and you're not some wierdo who is just reading this blog) and that I am telling you now so you can prepare for the Eurocation of a lifetime. I have already written down about 50 things I will do when I'm over there and I can help you with your list if you will just come and hang out with me in Germany. Thanks.

Cleveland, Ohio Ohio Ohio

In the last 2 years, Corey and I have been nearly everywhere within a 3 hour drive from our house. Now we are on to the longer drives. We went to Cleveland last weekend for the sole purpose of obtaining a baseball from the Indians stadium. I really liked Cleveland but traveling in the winter always seems bleak so get ready for some semi-depressing photos. Not a lot of people walking around and everything seems gray.
We followed the advice from our fat friend on Man vs Food and went to Melt Bar & Grille. 3 words: Gourmet Grilled Cheese. I know. It was heaven. I tried my first Monte Cristo and I will never be the same. It's turkey, ham and cheese (sounds normal) dipped in some kind of pastry batter and deep fried! Then you dip it in berry preserves and it is a combination of eating a grilled ham and cheese on top of a funnel cake.
There was a 3 hour wait at Melt so we called the other one on the other side of town and ordered to go. That was an hour wait so it was ready when we got there and we ate in our car. No 3 hour wait is going to get in the way of me and gourmet grilled cheese!

The Indians lost to the White Sox but as long as there are some good hecklers sitting nearby, I couldn't be happier. We were right by left field and the White Sox left fielder is Juan Pierre. He recently broke up with his rapper girlfriend and a group of guys next to us were giving him hell the whole game. It was hilarious.

 We went to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame before we left. No cameras were allowed inside and I was pretty lazy about taking pictures anyway.

I'm slightly offended that there is a child on Michael Jackson's guitar...gross.
