Elisabeth Tabor

Profile | Elisabeth Tabor | Owner | Corpus Christi Moms Blog

Owner

Elisabeth is so excited to be living her best life in Corpus Christi. After years of visiting the beaches of the Coastal Bend, she is loving the salty air, sandy toes, and wind in her hair.

No stranger to City Moms Blog Network, she began contributing to Austin Moms Blog in 2012 and is thrilled to continue the sisterhood here in Corpus Christi! She is married to Rad Brad and has two boys, Hudson and Finn.

Elisabeth enjoys all kinds of music, singing at the top of her lungs – especially in the school drop off line when the kids are getting out of the car – being outdoors as much as possible and is a complete and total advocate of NOT having a television in the living room.

Jennifer Mahan

Community Engagement Coordinator & Senior Writer

Jennifer is a Coastal Bend Native, born and raised in Ingleside. She began contributing to the Corpus Christi Moms Blog in 2018 and stepped up as the Community Engagement Coordinator in 2019.

She is happiest when she is crafting, writing, or doing anything artistic. She loves music, especially ANYTHING from the 90’s, and is often seen dancing around the kitchen to ‘Nsync while cooking dinner.

She is married to Derik and has two kids, Connor and Keeley. Jennifer still feels like a novice when it comes to parenting and enjoys letting other moms know they are not doing life alone. She also admits she watches copious amounts of Netflix, but balances that out by reading to and with her kiddos as much as possible each day.

Erin Hawkins

Profile | Erin Hawkins | Corpus Christi Moms Blog

Senior Writer

Erin grew up in West Texas and met her husband there in college. She and J. have been married for more than 20 years, and have lived all over Texas and the Caribbean. She settled in Corpus in 2014 and loves being close to the beach once again. Erin’s son arrived when she was 39, so she’s a late-comer to the mommy party!

Erin joined CCMB to learn more about blogging. But since then, she has become friends with a wonderful group of women who love living in the Coastal Bend and being moms.
Likes: Weezer, avocados, nerd humor, reading, cooking, eating and wine. Dislikes: people who drive slow in the fast lane and being late. Fun fact: Erin once managed one of the last drive-in theaters left in Texas, and loved every minute of it.

Emily Schofield

Emily is new to the Coastal Bend area but enjoys everything it has to offer! Emily and her husband Landon both grew up in Idaho, and came to Kingsville for her husband’s job as a range and wildlife biologist. Emily graduated with her BSN from Brigham Young University-Idaho.

Emily has two amazing children, Ashton (6) and Brooks (16 months). Emily has been a SAHM since Brooks was born and is returning to the nursing field this Fall. She also runs a blog and social media account called @thebackyardadventurers.

When she isn’t adventuring with her family, she loves faking insomnia with a good book, trying (and sometimes failing) new recipes, listening to podcasts and taking a bubble bath.

Jessica is quiet in person, but give her a pen and paper and she will write a novel. She loves reading, writing, watching movies and listening to music. She is a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan and loves anything chocolate.

She is very excited to begin her blogging adventure and getting to know the CCMB community of mommas.

Jerin is a Coastal Bend Native, currently living in Portland. She and her husband of 5 years, Ray, have two daughters in Heaven and are raising two wild toddler boys.
As a “crunchy-ish” stay at home mom, Jerin is always finding budget-friendly ways to help her family lead a more healthy, natural lifestyle. She enjoys discussing the deeper things in life and is easily bored with small talk.

Kelsie is excited to be a new Corpus Christi transplant. A born and bred Hoosier, Kelsie is finally realizing her lifelong dream of becoming a mermaid, or at least a beach bum, on the coast.

Kelsie and her husband, Josh, have been married for four years and have two children. She is loving life as a new stay at home mom and is always looking for engaging and budget-friendly ways to play.

In her free time, Kelsie can be found reading a good book or waltzing down the aisles of the dollar store looking for her next kids’ DIY inspiration. Kelsie is a natural extrovert and lover of people and is making it her personal mission to “Raise Kind Humans”. She knows the lyrics of far too many Disney songs and has been known to break into song and dance at random times.

LaToya is loving life in Corpus Christi. Although she is not a native Texan she claims she got here as fast as she could! She graduated high school and college in Corpus Christi, and considered moving, as a newlywed but decided to stay close to family and friends.

She easily makes new friends everywhere she goes and is extremely excited to be apart of the CC Moms Blog.

As a working wife and mother of two, she is always on the go. You will most likely catch her jamming to gangsta rap when her kids aren’t around, at the beach with her family, or representing Aflac at local events. She loves the outdoors, but enjoys a good Netflix binge, or reading a book in one sitting.

Shirelle Edghill

Shirelle Edghill

Shirelle Edghill is a Native Texan, born and raised in the Houston suburbs, then spending 10 years in Fort Worth, and 4 years in Wichita Falls. Her family moved to Corpus Christi in June of 2019. She has been married to her high school sweetheart Michael for 18 years, and is Mom to Ethan (17), Andrew (14), Mary Kathryn (7) and Thomas (5).

Describing herself as an “over-sharer” by nature, her job suits her perfectly.

Shirelle’s Catholic faith is a guiding force in her life, and you can usually find her singing with her church choir on Sundays. In addition to talking about menstrual cycles and women’s health, she loves to talk about parenting, education, personal finance, travel hacking, time management, and whatever stack of books she’s currently reading.

Tyler was a wedding planner for ten years, but put her career on hold to be a SAHM. Motherhood is by far her best accomplishment, although some days are harder than others.
Tyler has always had a passion for cooking, and, after college, s when she was trying to get the college weight off she began a track to healthy eating. Her blog, Not Your Ordinary Muffin Top,  started off as a place to store recipes, and track a
lifestyle change, but has turned into so much more. You can give her a follow on her blog or on Instagram!
