Why is it “we” and not “I”, you may ask? Simple enough, the answer is… once you say “I do” then bring a beautiful baby into your world, and include 100 lbs Akita, there is no “I”. Not all the time anyway, we’ll get to that another day.
Majority of my days, weeks, months, etc include a 2.5 year old, a loving husband, and the constant consistently shedding Akita. We enjoy your typical outings at the Park, our Zoo adventures, Beautiful Beach days, Aquarium exploration, lazy days at home (now thats a sight to see) and do our best to cook at home. Feeding our family and most importantly our daughter, only the best and hopes to be the most fresh ingredients at the cheapest cost to try and avoid most processed food ,BUT we are human and we finally just had enough cooking and dishes so we choose to eat out at, In-and-Out instead. Don’t judge, I’m sure you all have been there. Maybe not In-and-Out, could be McD’s, Whataburger, or even the Chick-fil-A. I’m just saying we need our break too.
Just a scratch…
Hello, I am mommy, thats the name I’m going by these days, but those who speak with me on a daily, and not in gibberish or broken sentences (unless they had a few) call me Tiffany or Tiff. Prior to my wife and mommy days, I was a sailor for the United States Navy. Its sounds so glorious, but it was a lot of hard work. Rewarding, but hard. There were some glory days in it, a lot of memories and seeing all kinds of wonderful places and meeting all kinds of new people. I was also and probably will always be a softball junkie. I am a Christian, and on a constant journey in my spiritual life. There is so much about who I am, and we will learn more as we dig deeper into this blog. So lets pace ourselves here and just scratch at the surface one tiny layer at a time.
First it was my dog, the 100 pound America Akita, Ella. She was named after the song “Umbrella” by Rihanna. I was dancing around the living room of my apartment and the song came on the radio. I turned it up so loud jamming out cleaning, and then the “umbrella” part came on. As I sang loud and proud with tone def ears, repeating the “ella ella ella” part she started to howl, bark, turning circles. At the time it was cute and oh so adorable, none the less did I know she just wanted me to stop singing. She entered my life when I was a young sailor. She was my saving grace in that chapter of my life.
Marriage & Baby
Then came the marriage, my husband is actively serving in the military. I think we are going the distance people. I mean at least one of should, jumped ship at 8 years. I was ready to start a family. So he took wheel and has been steering the ship for the last 5 years, or is it 6? Then came the kiddo! What a blessing she has been to our family, and a true test of patience. She is amazing. Her thing she loves this month are: Boss Baby(but who doesn’t like Alec Baldwin), Chalk Boards, Throwing every bit of play food over our patios rails, telling me to say “yes” to everything, and finally laying down at night asking me for big big hugs and big big kisses with snuggles. Oh melt my heart!!!! Right?
An Everyday Life with an Everyday Family!!!
That about wraps up the quick yet simply interesting beginning of my family, and this is an Everyday Life with an Everyday Family. We live everyday day to day, making things work pretty much on the fly. There may be a schedule but 99% of the time that schedule never stays strong and true. Instead we say, screw it, lets do this.
