My second to last night in Omaha. A couple of friends and I went to Jazz on the Green! I love Omaha and all it has to offer!!!
It was a beautiful evening!
We stopped by Red Mango to get some delicious yogurt!

 Kameron trying to decide on a flavor....too many wonderful choices! 
I decided on half Cinnamon yogurt and half white peach, loaded with TONS of delicious fruits!


The walking bridge into Iowa.
A part of my bucket list is to be in 2 places at once! Check! :)

Sunday! The day to drive to HOUSTON! Mackenzie flew into town, her and Katie helped me pack the night before. We got up in the morning and hit the road at 9:30! We stopped in York to get coffee with my college friend Rita. It was so good to catch up- and it was nice that it was on the way. What an awesome way to start the trip!!!

On the road again!

We played MANY car games and they really helped to pass the time!!! We played "Hey Cow" "Yellow Car" and "Zip" We also noticed that in Kansas the country roads were in alphabetical order, so we started to guess the roads!! Of the 26, we got 1 right! "Acorn" Felt so rewarding....later we found out that the streets were all labeled on the Garmin...and IF one of us was sneaky enough we could have gotten them all right!!! We did not cheat though and we had an awesome time!
My poor gummy bears got caught in the sun! So Kenz and I had a gummy chunk! Still delicious! 
NO LIE....we saw SO many dinosaurs on our trip down. There must be many museums have the exhibit of dinosaurs this fall!!!

I thought this cloud looked like a dragon or dinosaur.....

Made it to Houston! We kicked off our first night with some amazing friends, Aleshia, Nina, and Karli and we went to Lupe Tortilla, which is one of my favorite Mexican Restaurants! The next morning came really early but I was FULL of excitement to see everyone!!!  here is my classroom (same one as last year, so I have ideas on how I want to decorate it!) Some NEW additions....5 computers for my students! Its going to be a great year!
I am so proud of Kenz, she dropped me off at school in the morning and then Houston had to look out because Mackenzie and the Corolla were in town!

After a very overwhelming day, I was craving pasta. So we found this amazing restaurant that had the BEST food and the BEST live music. I even got wine on the house! It made for an awesome night! Thanks Kenz!

Went to IKEA to get a dresser and a sewing table. It was quite an adventure setting it up...and I will take pictures of the finished product once my room is in order!

2 b-e-a-utiful Smiling Killough Eagles!


Mackenzie helped me babysit one of the nights she was in town. We had so much FUN! Becky had left us a delicious bottle of wine and chocolate ice-cream!!! It was nice to have a night in and relax before she left!! :)

I feel so blessed! I had the MOST amazing week back in Houston! Reminds me of why I am here!!! I will post more pictures of my classroom and my first day of school this weekend!!!
Much Love...


  1. I wish I could have joined you... that sounds SO FUN!!!

  2. I am convinced that when cows "moo" they are simply playing a game called, "Hey! Human!" ...and I think they win a lot more than we do ;) Glad to hear you're having such a good time. xo
