why blog?

I have decided to begin a blog of our life here in Missouri. I know....why blog? Well, I must admit that there are times where I am just terrible about keeping in touch. And so many ask how Mike and I are getting along since moving back to Kansas City. I figure this can be a diary of our journey here in Missouri.

My Grandma Bradfield always wrote down everything that happened each day...and then years later she would read back to us what each of our family members were doing on each day. I am terrible about writing things down in a journal, but I am great with computers and typing. So I decided to try this out.

Hopefully, my writings won't be too terribly boring. Just a log of our day to day activities. And of course some pictures too.

So here it goes...let me try and catch you up to speed.

As many of you probably already know, Mike and I have moved back to the Kansas City area! YEA! Mike began his new job the first part of March and I just began a new job two weeks ago. So far everything is going good. We aren't really settled yet though, because we are in the process of buying a home!!! We close on the 16th of May. I will post a picture of it..don't worry.
We are so excited and can't wait to officially become home owners! At this moment we are living out of boxes in a 1 bedroom apartment in Lees Summit. Our new home is located up near Liberty. It is going to be about the same travel time for me into the city every day and a little less for Mike to his office.

We have been busy researching washers, dryers and fridges. So much fun~! Mike wants to sleep in our house the day we close. So we are hoping to have everything packed the night before closing.

My job is going good. I am super busy right now as it is the first of the month. Everyone that I work with is nice and it is a very laid back atmosphere. I still miss the group of friends I worked with in New Jersey. They were awesome! But, I am really enjoying this new company and all of the opportunities that it offers! A huge difference between working for a small privately owned company and working for a big corporation.

Mike's job is going well too. He is staying busy, but it is much slower paced than Aggreko in Jersey. I am enjoying seeing him more relaxed and having him around more. And I am especially enjoying no late nights or on calls! He is ready to own a home and get a shop set up. He deserves it and will now have time to work on things.

Bella, our puggle, is doing good as well. She was "fixed" about two weeks ago and seems to be getting along good. I have found a daycare for her to attend a couple of times a week. She was giving us some problems at home and I think a lot of it had to do with me going back to work after being home for a month. She is adjusting though and having a big yard for her to play in should help too.

I think that just about does it for my first blog. It is so great to be back closer to my family and friends! I had a chance to hang out with my sister, Kara, yesterday! We went shopping! It is so nice to be able to go with her and do things like that now. I really missed her! And of course Auntie Dana stole some kisses from Isaac. He is growing so fast. Already in 9 month old clothes. I call him my little frog...his smiles melt my heart!

Till next time.
