Say My Name

Today {or really by the time I get this up, it should be yesterday...whatevs} I'm linking up with Amanda over at Princess of the Panhandle for a fun linkup about blog names.

The Vintage Modern Wife: Say My Name Link Up

{{Why Trailerhood Aristocrats?!?!}} 

When our Little Lady was born I started a blog {that's what every new Mama does, right?!?} so that our family and friends could have a never ending supply of pictures of our new bundle of joy. And since I was pretty horrible at keeping the baby book up to date, the blog was a great way to document all of the memories and milestones. That's how "Toddling with Tressie" was born.

Six months after our Little Lady was born, we were blessed with the opportunity to move from the city back to my family's four generation ranch in the small eastern Colorado town of Wild Horse. We moved into a trailer house. Yes, a trailer house. Afraid that people might classify me as trailer trash, I decided not to give them the chance and began referring to ourselves as the Trailerhood Aristocrats. That's how "Trailerhood Aristocrats" was born.

Here's how I introduced Trailerhood Aristocrats:
We don't have a neighbor named Carl Dean with pink flamingos on his porch. No gambling Jane across the street who's always got the poker game. And I'm pretty sure if a tornado's coming, we're going to head for cover, not grab our six pack and lawn chairs. But we do think it's our little piece of paradise and there is always something going on down in our trailerhood. So we invite you to keep up with our trailerhood adventures here on the ranch through our new blog Trailerhood Aristocrats. 

After keeping both blogs for awhile, I finally consolidated them into one.

John Wayne {that's my husband's blog name} and I are in the planning stage of building our forever home here on the ranch. One of the first questions that I asked John Wayne was, "Do you think I'll have to rename my blog?"  {Because I happen to love my blog name and design!}

Thanks for stopping by and I would love to get to know you and your blog, so leave a comment, become a follower and I'll come visit you!

PLEASE! Don't change your blog name. I love it! I wish I could think of creative stuff like that!!! I guess that is why you are in the job you are huh?

Maria said...

Don't change your name! It's unique to you and it's interesting!

This is so great! I don't think there's any reason to change your blog name, even after you build your forever home. :-)

I hope you never change it! Although I haven't had the experience of living in a double wide (yet) when I saw your blog name I knew I would enjoy reading :) We will probably live in one sometime during our transition back to NE (either that or a teepee) and when we do I'm gonna make Wyatt sing Sammy Kershaw's "Queen of my double wide trailer" to me every night- one of my favorite songs ever!

I would totally trade my cookie cutter track house for a trailer with land! Can't convince hubby that farm life would agree with us but hopefully someday my dreams will come true! Please don't change the blog. I <3 it :)
