Nice to meet you.

Not sure, exactly, how you wandered here but let me start by saying welcome and thank you for showing up. My name is Kandis Marie and hopefully, I will actually stick to my blog this time. You see, I’ve started and abandoned a few blogs but this time it will stick and I will be motivated to keep writing because I don’t know, maybe you will enjoy this crazy thing called life with me.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let me tell you just a little bit about myself. A few years ago a teacher of mine asked the class to say something interesting about yourself so that he wouldn’t forget your name. I sat back and sunk in my chair because let’s face it, there was nothing interesting about me. He glanced at the roll sheet and called my name, without looking up he said “well that’s a weird way to spell it.” I sat up and faked confidence as best as I could and said “My name is Kandis, kinda like Kansas but it’s not…” The class, included the teacher, abrupted in laughter. He never did forget my name and still to this day he tells that story to his classes. (most likely not true, but a girl can dream)

I am married to a wonderful man of almost 8 years and we have a 6-year-old boy named Jacob. I will talk about them a lot. I work part time as a waitress (bleh!) while going to school to be a nurse (yay!). Currently living in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas and very often you will find us in Southern California, San Diego to be exact. I waited to go back to college until my son was in school. It was the right thing to do for our family and I really wanted to raise our son. So here I am, 28 years old and a college sophomore. My son and I do our homework together! (insert laughing emoji) Nick, my husband, is finishing up a few classes to get his real estate license. He is a USMC Veteran and has always worked in Aviation but recently decided on a career change.


Why is it so boring to talk about yourself? And that’s an old picture but it’s cute and I love it.

I’ll end this on a light note. I picked up Jacob from school today and on our walk home he shows me an Easter card that he made me in class. I open it up and it reads “MOM- Jacob PPWNWAJ” Translation? Jacob said he wrote Happy Easter in Spanish.
He’s in Kindergarten. (shoulder shrug)
