And the bids are in…

And we will be going to…


RIO DE JANEIRO January 2014!!!

(Yes, yes, our #1 bid!)

I’m so happy I almost peed myself!

Kind of odd thinking that’s still 2 years away, but that’s how this life works (and good to have a ton of notice this time!).  We’ll be in Manila until May of next year, then back in DC until it’s time to go to Rio!  (And we arrive on the year of the World Cup, woohoo!!!)

Now, who’s visiting?

  1. OMG! That’s AWESOME!!!!!!!! You’re going home! Yeaaaah! So happy for you! 🙂 Just like Billy Madison: “it’s cool to pee in your pants!”

    • Yes, I’ll get to live home for 2 years! I’ve been having dreams of walking on the beach with Lily, and told Karl I had a feeling it was Rio, but he said I was setting myself up for disappointment (which is true, had we gotten anything else). I guess my gut feeling was right!!! Can wait to live a few minutes from the beach again!

  2. I know how much it sucks to sit and wait and wonder and worry while the assignments are made, and I am so happy it worked out so well! It generally does, and then you feel silly for wondering, but, really, you can’t help but do it :-). Awesome news!!!!

  3. Awww, that’s awesome!! Welcome (soon) home!!
