Hopefully, I'll be able to post about how the move went after we move. We are also planning a few roadtrips before Billy starts school in the fall (August 1!), so I'll let y'all know how roadtripping with a hates-to-be-in-a-car-seat 11 month-old little boy goes.
For right now, here is a preview of the place, house, and school!
|Picture of the main street of Maplewood, Missouri. Maplewood is a town within the city limits of St. Louis and it's only 10 minutes away from Washington University.|
|Olin Business School at Wash U in St. Louis. Doesn't it look like something out of Dead Poet's Society?|
Plus, the cost of living in St. Louis is amazing (for the 3 bedroom, 2 bath house we ended up renting at $1200, we would have gotten a 1 bedroom apartment in DC. Dumb, right?) Although St. Louis has its issues with crime and what not, the area where we're going to live is actually quite nice and very family and dog friendly.
|Our adorable new house!!! It's also got a beautiful back yard for the doggies.|
As for me, I will continue to work on my dissertation while Billy's at school and work everyday to be inspired to finish and to lead a happier healthier life. Oh. And to be the bestest mom and girlfriend that I can be. yada yada yada.
