So, after months of wanting to start a blog for our little family, finally we have one! My amazing sister-in-law Shayla designed our blog and I so appreciate it! Of course Matt fought me for quite a while on the idea of having a blog. He hates doing anything "trendy"! He actually wanted to name our blog "the Bandwagon Menzies"! I quickly vetoed that one! Instead we came up with "Menzie World", because it sounds like Disney World. And, for everyone who knows us really well, they know that we live there! Seriously, we have annual passes, and sometimes we do feel like it is our second home! And for any of you wondering, yes Matt did shave his head, but that's another story for another time. I'm just glad that his hair has grown back! So, here we are with our blog.
I guess I should catch everyone up to speed on our family. Matthew and I have been married for almost four years now. We met while Matt was attending flight school in Florida. After he finished we moved to Salt Lake City, UT where we both worked and awaited the arrival of our daughter Mattie. Our little MoMo was born in Sept. of 2005, thus making her 2 and a half years old. Shortly after Mattie arrived we moved back to FL. I missed my mom, and the beautiful, warm weather. Yeah, I'm so not a fan of the long, cold winters in Utah!
Anyway, so here we are still living in Florida. Matt works out of the Orlando Airport flying for Freedom Air, the 50-seat regional jets for Delta Connection. He has loved living out his dream of flying! I'm grateful that he has a career that he enjoys so much, even if it means I play single mom for days at a time. Mattie and I spend our days going to the gym, playing with friends and watching Dora the Explorer. Yes, she is a HUGE Dora fan! Mattie will be starting up swim lessons again in a month, and she is very excited about it. Here we have to teach them young!
Well, I guess that's about it for my first post. I'm way excited to finally be part of the blogging world! Cheers!
