Hi there, I'm Mama!

It's so nice to meet you! I’ve recently come to the realization that several of the friends I’ve made through this blog, otherwise known as my fellow blogging mamas – think I’m my wife, G… lol. It’s true. In reading past comments and interacting with some of you on Instagram and other social networks, it has come to my attention that while most know I'm Mama, they have confused my face with G’s. I can see how easy it would be to do this… we’re both women, we do resemble each other (which often prompts people to ask if we’re sisters, eww!) and we are both moms to our beautiful babies, little G and W. :) 

I must admit, I’ve done this same thing myself. There's a blog that I had followed for quite some time and realized after 5 months of reading, that the face I had been pairing with blog posts was the wrong mom! The mom who I thought was the blogger, was in fact the non-blogger (aka, the other mom) and I had been picturing the wrong person for months! I’m sure we’ve all done this. You see pictures on a blog and you envision that person as you read about their many adventures. It can be quite surprising when you realize you had it wrong all along, haha.

In any case, I wanted to set the record straight and introduce myself… the Hispanic looking one with long dark hair. Yes, that's me... the dork in the glasses. Here’s a few things about me, Mama! ;)

* I’ve been blogging here at More Than Words since 2010.

* I’m a left-handed Scorpio.

* I LOVE the water, any kind of water. The lake, the shower, a pool – love it all.

* I came out to my family more than a decade ago and my wife Georgia was the first and forever woman in my life.

* My master's degree is in business administration/human resources management (MBA/HRM) and I work as an HR manager in the healthcare field.

* My hobbies include blogging (surprise!), photography, crafting, DIY-ing, scrapbooking, sewing and I’m somewhat of a movie buff.

* I truly value my friendships. Most of my close friends have been in my life for 30+ years.

*Favorite foods include: sushi, Mexican food, cake, black olives and deviled eggs.

* My natural hair color is black. I’ve been lightening my hair for years because I feel I look a little mean with super dark hair.

* I am the classic middle child… I have one brother who is 3 years older than me and a sister who is 2 years younger.

* I’m a 4th generation Dallas Cowboys fan. Go Cowboys!

* Favorite movies include: When Harry Met Sally and So I Married an Axe Murderer and I watch re-runs of Friends every single night before bed.

* If I had to pick one type of music to listen to for the rest of my life – it would be Classic Rock!

* Once upon a time, I wanted to have 4 kids. Then my wife and I went through a 3 year struggle to conceive between our first and second child and ended up finding out that I have MTHFR and I'm infertile. All in all, it took us 7 years to create our beautiful daughter and son and I think we're good! I would love to have 3 kids, but I think we're both ready to just live our lives with the amazing kiddos we've been blessed with and be done with the TTC process. For now, we're looking to the future and excited to spend our money on family vacations, a bigger home and extra curricular activities for the kids, rather than blowing through all our excess funds on fertility treatments and all that comes along with that. If you have any experience with assisted reproduction, I'm sure you're well aware of what a money pit it is! Sheesh!

Now how’s that for putting a face to the name.  Nice to re-meet you! :)
