My name is Thalia (pronounced Thay-lee-uh) and I am married to my best friend. I guess you could call us high school sweethearts (we’ve known each other since I was 12). We have a very (this is an understatement) energetic, friendly, and LOUD 5 year old boy and 2 year old girl. My formal education and training is in elementary education. I was unhappy in teaching, mostly because I put my heart and soul into everything I did, and got paid pennies. I left teaching in 2011, took a chance and changed careers to become a flight attendant. Becoming a flight attendant has taught me so much about being flexible, living life, and enjoying family and it’s been the best decision I have ever made.
Some quick facts:
I love all things pretty and sparkly.
I hate eggplant.
I love haunted houses and scary movies.
Halloween is my favorite holiday, duh.
I am a Disney enthusiast. (More like addicted and obsessed)
I travel the world for a living.
I call paradise (AKA Hawaii) my home.
Family is everything to me.
I like to go thrift hunting, it’s my mom’s fault (that’s a whole post on its own)
I also pick things up off the side of the road. (Also my mom’s fault, and also another post on it’s own)
I believe in self-love and self-confidence
I started this blog because the perils and struggles of mommy hood are very real! When I was pregnant, I was terrified because I didn’t know what to expect or what was normal. I didn’t know that getting 2 hours of uninterrupted sleep and taking a shower were luxuries! So I started blogging. Later I didn’t know that if my son was still awake at 12AM, and eating only chicken nuggets, life was going well, so I started blogging again. Then I suffered from PPD and life was not so good and I stopped blogging. Then I broke through it, started living life for me, and taking care of myself and I started blogging again.
This blog goes out to all you mommies who think you’re alone and don’t know what the heck to do. Or for those of you who seem to have it together, you can laugh at the rest of us common folk who try to act like we are keeping it together. In any case, I’m glad you’re here.
