Hey ya’ll, this is my first official blog post. Eeek, I’m nervous. I’m trying really hard to be grammatically correct, but also trying to add in my sense of humor and my everyday slang. Bear with me.
Why Mexican Vanilla you ask? Well, well, well, let’s take it back to the year two thousand and ten. You see, my then boyfriend and now husband – Daniel – and I decided we wanted some ice cream. We stumbled into the little ice cream shop called Amy’s Ice Cream. As we were salivating at the mouth trying to figure out what we wanted, we noticed a flavor called ‘Mexican Vanilla’. We had to try it and as fate prevailed, it became our FAVORITE flavor. We mixed it with crushed Oreos and strawberries. Go TRY IT, you will not be disappointed.
And then I realized, “OMG, this is totally us. You are the Mexican and I am the Vanilla! Get it?” <Cue the light bulb in my head and Daniel rolling his eyes because he got it way before me.>
A few years down the line and many scoops of Mexican Vanilla ice cream later, we had our first Mexican Vanilla baby, a girl, Kapri. We couldn’t stop at just one and last December we welcomed our second Mexican Vanilla baby, a boy, Ezra. Both the perfect mix of us.
So now here we are. Our little family. A little bit of Mexican, a little bit of Vanilla – a true (and literal) reflection of us. I’m excited to document our lives and adventures as a Mexican Vanilla family. Welcome to our sweet life. Grab some Oreos and strawberries and enjoy yourself.
