Profile | Elisabeth Tabor | Owner | Corpus Christi Moms Blog


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 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.
