Hello everyone! I’m Karly Gomez!
I’m a small town Northern girl living in the big city Southwest, raising a family and trying desperately not to melt under the scorching skies. I’m an extremely amateur photographer, crafter, and oh yeah, blogger too! I spend most of my time tinkering with electronic toys and playing with my girls as I live as a SAHM. I’m from a small family with a huge extended family and I love to travel to see anyone and everyone I can. I’m a former Airman, bartender and alcoholic, and a current preggo, lover of all things photography and kitten wrangler.
Rudy and I have been married since July 25, 2009, and he is one helluva man. Loyal, funny and super loving, there isn’t a single person who hasn’t liked him after meeting him. He’s a server and bartender and also a student working toward becoming an NP in an ER setting. He’s great under pressure and handles intense situations well. He’s also a great companion to my grandfather, who struggles with some form of dementia, and a great relief to my grandmother, who enjoys the distractions. I may be the super independent type, but I would be completely lost without him.
Afton Carrolena was born in December of 2008, and has been a hell-raising delight ever since. OK, maybe not so delightful in her “terrible twos” stage, but she’s still pretty cute. She has Rudy’s love for all things food, and my love for all things sugar, and a just general love to say Hello and wave at absolutely everyone she sees.
Delaney Virginia was born in May of 2010 and is a total cuddle monster/love machine. It’s great. She has just started walking and greatly enjoys chasing her sister around and rough-housing till someone (usually her!) cries. She also has a love for food (thank God for that, I was made a picky eater), and will very literally scream her head off if she sees someone eating in front of her without sharing. Otherwise, Delaney is a fairly quiet child carrying a loud smile.
Baby #3 is due this May, and scheduled to arrive exactly one week after Delaney turns One. Aye yai yai! Also a girl, her name will likely be Vivienne Selene, and we cannot wait to meet her.
My blog is about anything and everything; be it crazy things my girls do, my opinion on something I’ve witnessed, to photo challenges and personal endeavors. I plan on doing so much more this coming year, including some super fun giveaways, so I hope you will take a moment to check me out and to say Hi! I really look forward to meeting you and getting to know what is special and important to you!
Thank you for stopping by!
