We’re Back!

We returned last night from our house hunting trip in Georgia!  We looked at A LOT of houses and we narrowed it down to 2.

I’ve always been told that Texas homes don’t have basements because of the soil here and then I was recently told that Georgia has similar soil as Texas . . . so why are there basements in Georgia?  Well, I figured it out this weekend – there are hills in Georgia!  It is not flat there.  You actually have to pay attention to the blue signs on the freeway that tell you which exit has food/gas/hotel because you can not see anything from the freeway but trees!  Lots and lots of trees!  Don’t get me wrong, it is very pretty but I just like to be able to see where I’m going!

Another thing we noticed about Georgia is that they do not use street names, instead they use exit numbers.  For example “Main Street” would be called “Exit 9” in Georgia.  This makes it a little difficult to learn the name of the streets!  I’m sure that is something that we can get use to!

Everybody we met in Georgia was super nice and I think we will enjoy it there.  We tried out a few of the local restaurants and one thing is for sure – they do not know what Tex Mex is!  Not that I really expected them to, but oh how I will miss my Tex Mex!
