I'm Caitlyn and if you haven't already read the little "about me" on the home page, here is the full "about me"!
I was born and raised in San Diego, CA into a Navy family and then I married back into one! I met my husband Matt the Fall of 2016 on eHarmony. He was one of the first guys that was "compatible" with me right after I made the payment and logged on for the first time! We were married November of 2017, pregnant July 2018 and I gave birth to our first child and son March 2019, pregnant again October 2019 and gave birth to our second son July 2020! It's been a whirlwind!
As I said before, I married back into a Navy family; Matt is a SWO (Surface Warfare Officer) in the Navy and we can't wait to see where the Navy decides to send us! After we were married, we finished off shore duty in San Diego and then packed our lives up only two months after I gave birth and drove across country (with a newborn, two large dogs and two cats!) for Department Head School in Newport, RI. Moved back across the country at 34 weeks pregnant and now living like a single mama while Matt is geobaching in Japan till the end of 2021.
I'm a very lazy person (let's be real here). I love to go out and do things like hiking, walking, camping, shopping, actually getting together with other people, going out to eat and all things fun and enjoyable like that but honestly, I have a hard time making myself actually do it! I became a stay-at-home mamma once I had my baby and love playing "homemaker" (I'm very old fashioned in that I like keeping the house, taking care of the kids, the animals, cooking, baking, decorating, gardening and doing the laundry (most days). Being home all day can get lonely at times but I'm absolutely loving this new season of my life!
So basically, this is a blog to talk about what it's like being a stay-at-home mamma (or just a mamma in general because other than working in or out of the house, we all do our best to take care of our families), a Navy wife (because that's a maze in itself) and the every day happenings of life involved with that.
