My First Blog Post

I finally decided to enter the world of blogging. So far it feels strange, like I am talking to myself, but I am going to try to hang in there because I think that this will definitely be something fun to look at in the future.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a twenty-something housewife who loves to cook, bake, and shop. My husband and I met in high school when we were 16 and got married at 23....yes, after 7 1/2 years of dating we finally took the plunge!! Since being married we have lived in 3 different cities in 3 different states. I know moving 3 times in a year and a half....we must be crazy. We both went to LSU for college so our married life started out in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The economy put a damper on my husband's job search, but we felt very lucky when he got a job offer so we packed up and moved to Austin, Texas. After 8 months there the economy took an even deeper plunge and his hours were cut back in Austin, an amazing job presented itself at just the right time so we again packed up and moved halfway across the country to New York City...Brooklyn to be exact!!

We are still getting used to life here, and it definitely has its good and bad side (LOTS of shopping but no car and no laundry). All that matters right now is that we are together and happy.

I can't wait to share more about everything from Fashion and food to laundry and dishes!

To anyone out there....thanks for reading!

Hi! Thanks for you comment earlier on my post. It looks like we have alot in common. My DH and I have been together since high school, married when we were 22. We both graduated from LaTech. We live in south Louisiana now but would love to live in Austin/Dallas/Houston in a few years. Y'all have moved alot! How do you like living in NY? I can imagine it is a HUGE change from what you are used to!

WOW...we do have a lot in common!! Living in NY is exciting but it is definitely trying at time...the simplest task is so much harder here because everything is inconvenient. Austin was a GREAT city...ya'll should definitely look into moving there!! I am sure that you are so ready for James to be here!

Welcome to blogging!! We also used to live in Austin until we moved to the middle of the desert (AZ) about a year ago...oh how I miss life in TX!

Thanks Vanessa...I LOVE your blog!! Did you not love Austin??? We only lived there for 8 months, but I really think that after my husband gains his experience here we may move back!!

Austin is really the top contender for us right now but we still have 2 more years here due to first time homebuyer tax credit but I am sure it will fly by!
