Moved to St Louis have moved to St Louis, MO. Yes, you've heard that right. We have moved to Missouri and my brothers are having a grand ole time with it too:

- You better be driving a monster truck the next time I see you.

- Just wait til Ryan buys a tall mesh hat and trades in the car for a F650 super diesel.

Chicago is an amazing city but we're totally excited to live a more low key life. And with baby #2 almost here, it's time for more space. We're ready for a lawn, garage, basement, lack of noisy neighbors, etc, all the amenities an actual house can provide.

We sold our apartment in Wrigleyville. What a great place to start our marriage and have our first kid. It's unfortunate Ashley will probably never remember living there, although pictures will prove it. It also figures that the Cubs will probably go far in the playoffs this year too*.

We bought a ranch style house in St. Louis. It needs a ton of work but I've been itching for some manual labor. We live across the street from a neighborhood pool, park and 4 tennis courts.

I'm going to take some pictures this evening of the demolition that I'm doing at nights. I'll post them here.

* I'm a Pirates fan at the core but will root for any Chicago team if on TV..
