We're finally here & loving New Orleans!

Well, I finally gave in to the pressure and created a blog. I hope that everyone will enjoy keeping up with us in this manner. I'll be posting pictures of the kids - as well as bits and pieces of our life here in New Orleans.

To update everyone... we're doing great here! We are living in a part of New Orleans called River Ridge. From our yard we can see the levee that separates us from the Mississippi! In fact our first few days here I was standing in our back yard and literally saw a huge boat (barge - who knows, I'm still learning) passing by! It was super cool!! Then this past Saturday we took the family up on top of the levee and took a nice stroll. There is a jogging path up there and I hope to start using that again soon. It was super cool to see the River that close up!!

I sold my t-shirt company right before we left Houston. I was very proud to have built something that had value and is continuing on in my absence. Sherry is doing an awesome job keeping Impress Me! alive. So for the first time since I was 16 I find myself unemployed. And I'm LOVING every minute of it. Today, all laundry will not only be complete but in it's proper place! What an accomplishment! Tonight I've prepared Lemon Caper Mahi Mahi with asparagus and pesto grilled tomatoes.

This morning Jordan and I made things to mail to our friends in Houston, made a butterfly craft and she helped me to make the marinade for the fish. Wow! I am having a blast being a Mommy!
