It’s Takeover Tuesday – Meet Stephanie


Hey Coastal Bend Families – Happy Tuesday!

I don’t know about you, but this morning I woke up in THE BEST mood. Finally some sunshine and gorgeous weather! We are so, so, SO excited that our first ever Mom’s Night Out event at Alamo Drafthouse is coming up – and we can tell that you guys are too! So excited, that you guys SOLD IT OUT in 3 days! Holy smokes! We have heard you #CCMBMoms and we are listening – expect lots more MNO events in our future. In the meantime, in anticipation of meeting so many of you next week, I thought we’d take an opportunity to re-introduce your CCMB Contributors – that way when you see us next week, you will know who you’re talking to! Since today is #TakeoverTuesday on our Instagram feed, it’s only fitting that we re-intro the lovely Stephanie to you all!

Stephanie moved to North Padre Island from Jacksonville, Florida with her husband, two sons, Wilder (1) and Bouldin (4), and beloved golden retriever, Bodhi. Stephanie grew up in Amarillo, but spent most of her adulthood in Austin where she met her husband. They moved quite a bit as her husband started medical school and then attended ER residency. Prior to becoming a stay-at-home mom, Stephanie received a masters in social work, worked for several years in fundraising, and ran a local nonprofit organization dedicated to the needs of breast cancer patients in El Paso. She began blogging as they started moving around with her husband’s medical training- it started with a focus on thrifting, and as life transitioned, the blog also shifted into travel and motherhood. With her husband’s crazy ER schedule, she tries to keep her boys active hiking, biking, and heading to the beach. Stephanie is learning to slow down and soak up every moment with her young boys.

She clearly is living her best life and we are so lucky to have so many great, fun posts! Some favorites include:

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, Elisabeth 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 proponent of NOT having a television in the living room.
