Going Away Party!

We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends in Kansas City. We had lots of laughs, tears, and mosquito bites at our going away party in the lovely Kranz backyard. Our friends and community in KC is irreplaceable. It's so awesome to have friends that know you and have known you since you were a little kid! Thanks to everyone who came out and hung out with us before we made the big move. We have your guest room waiting!

Goodbye, Sweet Loft!

Here are some pics of our loft in the City Market in Kansas City, MO. It was our first home as a married couple and we loved living the city life!

Bertie's 1/2 Birthday Surprise!

Billy's mom, Bertie, has never had a REAL birthday party. Why? Because her birthday is on Christmas Day. Each year on December 25th, everyone tries to make it special for her and designate some presents as "birthday" presents, but come on...it's Christmas! So this year, I thought we should have a half b-day party on June 26th with cake, balloons, friends, and all the party fluff every girl wants on her birthday! A great group of friends came out to celebrate at Waldo pizza and needless to say...it was a huge surprise!

The Creature Comforts Ride Again!

Billy's old band "The Creature Comforts" reunited after 7 years at the Record Bar last night, June 20th. This was the first chance I had to ever see this band live. They are amazing and their songs have stood the test of time, for sure. So many friends/fans came in from all over the U.S. including our great friend, Jason Sudeikis. Jason was a fan of the band and even found his old band t-shirt! (See Billy's website for video! www.billybrimblecom.com)

After the show, we all went to the Everard house to celebrate the great night. Jason stopped by Taco Bell and brought a little bit of food over. Um...40 tacos! It was a glorious sight for this hungry girl.

Remy is here!

After a LONG wait in the hospital, Remy Michael Swearengin is here! My first nephew. He is the cutest, smartest baby in the world. Hannah, Larissa, and I have started the competition for the favorite aunt award. :) I will be the aunt who lives far away so I can spoil him the most! I miss the little tater tot already! Those cheeks!

Heather and Cody will be the most fantastic parents. I'm so proud of my sis!

The City Market

I have really loved living in the River Market neighborhood. I love being right on the edge of downtown where so much is happening and developing. It's funny to me that many people who have lived in this area their whole life don't even know that this exists. It's like a hidden jewel in the city.

Saturdays mornings in the City Market are so amazing. It's like a fruit, veggie, lemonade, kettle corn party just waiting for us right across the street. It has been a great neighborhood to call home.
