Safe Haven

I came here to this big white space thinking I had something to say. But after a gazillion hour long day at work and some other nonsense, I am totally brain dead. All I can really think about is my NutriBullet arriving tomorrow and all the drinks I'm gonna make and also thinking about the snaps I sent to everyone of my lil dude DeNiro in his new skull coat. No but really, look...



Speaking of snapchat, this girl here is one my snapchat besties. Meet Tiffany, from My Safe Havens! She's a mommy from Texas who hates skinny jeans, loves horror movies and - one of my favorite things - when she was a kid she thought there were a bunch of little people under the bath tub that would make the bath tub work. I wish I thought that!! I did a little interview so that we could all get to know her a little bit better, check out what she would do if she won the lottery!


1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging to keep my family in the know of what goes on, on the regular with me and my daughter. The other reason is very near and dear to my heart, and my blog came to be because my brother was taken from this world much too soon in 2012. I wanted to make sure to leave a footprint behind for my loved ones; especially my daughter (his son was 2 when he passed). I would much rather her have a glimpse of me from my own hands and words, rather than have them instill memories they have about me on her so they become hers. Does that even make sense?!

2. What are your blogging goals?
First and foremost, it is to have fun and never have it feel like a chore. I am here for me first. I have found some of the most empowering people here, and I always seem to stumble upon the words I need to hear, just at the right time. If I could do that for just one person, I think it would be fair to say that my goal has been met. I have met some awesome people and have formed some great friendships here, and I would like to continue to grow my friendship circle.


3. What advice do you have for new bloggers?
My biggest advice is to be yourself. Find your own niche. Have fun, put yourself out there, and engage with other bloggers. You will form some of the best, lifelong friendships here.

4. If you won $50 million in the lottery, in what ways do you think your life would change? 
I think not only my life would change, but the lives of those around me would change as well. I would like to say I would still work, but who knows? I would probably end up buying a ranch with plenty of land and start my own animal rescue, or haven. There are so many dogs put down on the regular because of their breed alone such as rottweilers, pit bulls, german shepherds, and the like. I know where I am, the city pound automatically euthanizes these breeds after the waiting period if they are any age over 6 months and that kills me. Rescue was my heart and soul, and is still a passion I would like to pick back up again. Of course, seeing the world and travel is also on my list. Another thing that has been weighing heavy on my heart as of late is adoption. There are so many unwanted children in the United States. If I didn't work, I would spend time volunteering for a place like Texas Casa, to be the voice for children of the court systems.


5. Tell us 2 random facts about yourself.
1. I have foot in mouth disease in a bad way. I always speak without thinking! Apparently, I just called my new boss old, and didn't even know it!
2. I have the ugliest feet ever. It's really my toes, and they always make it into the topic of conversation in the summer one way or another. If I buy closed toed shoes I usually have to go up a half, or entire shoe size! I actually had a guy ask me to hold his cigarette once, when I put my hand out to hold it, he said NO, with your toes!

You can keep up with Tiffany all over the interwebz like Bloglovin, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram!

  13. If I tried to put a coat on my cat, she would hate me! He sure looks cute though! And I don't know what I'd do without skinny jeans...they are the best fashion invention ever! Tiffany's reason for blogging is touching. So sad to hear about her brother. :(

  24. Your kitty's coat is so cute! As for Tiffany, I once inadvertently told my boss she was old... I guess. She was talking about her sister and said her sister was 42, and I asked, "Are you older than her?" and she actually got mad!
