Passionate About the Community
and the Moms Who Live Here

Meet Christy :: RGV Moms Blog Contributor

Christy STell us a little bit about you:

I am a wife, mom of three, freelance graphic designer, and lover of mountains and fall leaves. I grew up in North Carolina but have lived in Texas for the last 10 years, seven of them in the Rio Grande Valley. My husband, Caleb, is a 6th grade teacher at IDEA McAllen. We have three kids: Nate is six, Kamila is three and Eli is seven months. We are also licensed foster/adoptive parents. In my super small amount of spare time, I enjoy photography and reading biographies.

Finish this sentence: “You’d never guess that I…”

… am a twin.

Describe your ideal day.

I love slow and relaxed days with my family. If doughnuts and a swim in the pool are involved, that’s even better!

Name three must-haves and why.

1. My phone (it’s my brain, my clock, my entertainment, my connection to the outside world)

2. Dr. Pepper (no explanation needed)

3. Flip flops (because they are my year-round shoes in the RGV)

RGV Mom Blog Contributor Christy Swaringen and familyWhat do you miss most about life before kids?

A clean house, sitting down through an entire meal and freedom to travel.

In three words, what kind of mom are you?

Organized, Passionate, Creative.

Anything else fun we should know?

I love Jesus, cold coffee and raspas!
