Comfort Inn, Oxford, MS

So if there’s one thing I love to do, it’s travel. My goal is to go to travel to all 50 states as well as all over the world! But you can only do one little thing at a time.

So here recently my Faulkner class made a trip to Oxford, MS since that is where William Faulkner himself lived. Our class stayed at the Comfort Inn. You can even see my room there from here… I was on the 2nd floor first door from the left.

I swear, King beds will spoil me :). The couch pulled out into a hide-a-bed also.

Where would you be if you weren’t with me?

So the hubbs and I were driving down the road yesterday and we were listening to the Crook & Chase Country Countdown. One year ago today Lee Brice’s “A Woman Like You” was the number one song of the countdown.

I was the one driving and I’d just sit there and giggle at some of the lyrics just because, well I’m not really sure why but the lyrics were just cracking me up. Then when it got to the point in the song where he sang, “She just smiled and rolled her eyes,” I actually smiled and rolled my eyes.

So jump forward a couple of hours and hubby was now driving and I was sitting in the passenger seat and I looked at him and said, “So Where would you be if it weren’t for me?”

His response was, “Looking for a girl like you.” I giggled and rolled my eyes. Then I made the comment that just after we started dating he actually got an offer to go back to The Stan (Afghanistan) for 2 years but he chose to stay in the states because of me. I said, “You’d probably have gone back.” He said, “Yeah, probably so, but at least in Afghanistan I’d have had Facebook so you could have found me and we could have had the conversation about when I was coming back for leave and you could have asked me to go on a date with you and then you could have kicked me in the crotch and I could have fallen in love with you and we’d be right where we are now.”
