Hi everyone! I’d like to welcome you to my blog; Lovely in Pink! Hopefully this will be an extension of who I am and you guys can enjoy, laugh, and cry with me through this new journey!
At little bit about who I am
My name is Christy and I’m a stay-at-home mama of my dear little Izzy and married to my best friend; Joe! They are my world and I love them dearly!! I currently live in wonderful Houston! (Not really where I thought I would be living but I’ve grown to love it and now call it home!) I was born in Peru and moved to Moore, OK where I grew up! I miss the closeness that I had with my family and friends and hope to build something similar here in Houston! Both my husband and I graduated from the great University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner!) and amongst the sea of Aggies, we wear our Crimson and Cream proudly! Even though I stay at home, I am a Chiropractor but choose to put my career on pause so I can focus on raising our daughter, which was something that I’ve always wanted to do. I love taking long walks in the mall…uh…I mean on the beach, exercising, traveling, cooking and baking, organizing, and shoes!!!!
Why I start Lovely in Pink?
This blog was in the making probably since I was pregnant with Izzy (which was about 3 years ago). I had so much to say and write down but I didn’t know where I could express myself. Also, being a first time mom was a very tough experience for me and felt that I was the only one going through the rollercoaster ride that is motherhood. I’m naturally an introvert so it’s really difficult for me to make connection with others without wanting to revert back into my turtle shell (that’s what my husband says as a joke). So for me having that community or group to lean on whenever I needed someone to talk too was not there. And partly because I just felt awkward and shy saying, “HI!! I NEED A FRIEND!!!” So, I just kept all to myself until I finally decided, “I’ll start a blog!” I’m hoping that this will help me get my creative juices going and start using that other side of my brain that is not associated with phrases like “…do you need to tinkle?”, “…don’t eat that!!” or “…clean up! everybody, everywhere!”
What you will see on Lovely in Pink
So my hopes for this blog is to share all my lovely stories of motherhood and life in general! Some will be beautiful and pink and some not, but that’s ok, that’s life after all! I also will like to share with you all things that make me happy and bring joy into my life! I’m a new Christian, becoming a believer in Christ as an adult, so the Lord is number one of importance to me and learning about how awesome His love is for us, just brings tears to my eyes! I also love to be with my family so I will be sharing stories about our journey as Houstonians and also my extended family! I love to travel but have slowed down a lot since having Izzy. Well, we still travel a lot and have been on plenty of plane rides all before the age of two! So I have a few words and stories to share about traveling with a baby/toddler! I also love to cook and bake! I’m not sure which I like to do best, but if you ask others; baking is my jam! Fitness is very important aspect of my life! I love to exercise and try to get in a workout whenever I can! It’s super important for me to have a physical outlet to help me be a better mom and wife. Okay, so I also love to shop! I’m not much of a beauty person and I would classify myself as low-maintaince on that part…but my husband will tell you that my closet will beg to differ! Yes! I love to shop, put outfits together and look nice! Now that I have Izzy, I purposely try to match her to me or I try to match her, which I will take full advantage of it now before she notices and thinks that it’s uncool! (Which I hope that will NEVER happen…right?)
Why Lovely in Pink?
So I choose Lovely in Pink for many reasons. The first one was because I absolutely LOVE the color pink! Those who know me associate me with the color pink! Most of the items I own are pink and it’s a happy color for me! Guys, I used to drive a PINK mustang!!! So yeah, I love the color pink! I wanted a name to refelct the person who I really am, and the person in which I’m becoming. Granted, there are days that I am not Lovely at all but want to live this life in a positive light. This reflects me going into that direction and sharing stories that reflect the lovely and not so lovely sides of life. To me, life is always Lovely in Pink!
