Ok, pause. Yes, I’m already pausing this post but I feel the need to clarify something.
When I started my little blog I knew I was going to write about the Hubby’s job. Probably a lot.
So I thought I came up with a witty and adorable name that as soon as people so it they would be like “Oh, police wife.. I get it… gosh she’s clever“. But that hasn’t happened.
I’ve been asked a bunch of times what on earth my name means… even by 5ohHubby’s mother… so I thought I’d just clear things up once and for all.
5ohWifey as in 5-0 as in the standard call sign for police as in Hawaii five 0.
Yes, I know that if you have to explain it it isn’t funny. So…. awkwardI am amazed every day by what God is doing in my life despite my lack of a clever blog title.
I am a southern girl now living in California against my will.
I am the wife of 5ohHubby who is a police officer and wonderful man and no that’s not mutually exclusive. I am a stay at home mom to an amazing little girl I call 5ohBaby and she is seriously fabulous. We have probably the cutest, ugly dog out there (5ohPup).
I think I’m pretty funny and sometimes other people do, too. Not as funny as Erin, but…. ya know.
I have a BA from Florida State (Go Noles!) that started out as an English Degree, ended up a social science degree, and is now being used as a MRS degree because I don’t work now… see how I did that?
Basically I paid FSU lots and lots o’ cash to meet the man of my dreams and be the back up plan in case 5ohHubby decides his days of runnin’ and gunnin’ are over and he’d rather be a stay at home dad and all the police wives laughed.
She sure is cute, huh? I know.. I made her from scratch. Don’t worry though… she isn’t always this stinking cute. Once, her eye swelled completely closed and she straight up looked like Quasimodo. S eriously you can go check it out here. That was a face only a mother could love. And mock… Only a mother could mock.
Ok, that’s rotten. But you know what? I don’t have it all together. Hey, you cant do it all. Sometimes, I take inappropriate pirate-y pictures mocking my daughters 3 day hospital stay. Sometimes, I accidentally feed my baby jalapenos. Sometimes, I pray inappropriate and hilarious Tina Fey Prayers for her. But y’all, I love that girl like nobodies business and I’m pretty sure stuff like this puts the “hood” in mommy hood seriously what is with the ghetto references?
I do other things besides totally mess up being a mom. I bribe other travelers with chocolate on plain rides even though 5ohBaby is seriously an angel to travel with. I wrestle with the hardships that come with being a police wife and I talk about some of the funnier stories I get to hear. Every so often I put up a stupid simple and ridiculously delicious recipe for random things like stuffed meatballs and cheesy polenta. I don’t know why but I keep posting awkward and mostly unhelpful mommy style fashion posts. Also? Lots of adorable pictures of 5ohBaby
So lets re pop a cap, shall we? ok ok i’m done with the white girl ghetto references.
Not-as-witty-as-I-thought blog title. Check. Adorable baby I made from scratch who gives me grace as I stumble my way through parenthood. Check. Husband who is pretty awesome with a super cool and often challenging job. Check. Self deprecating sense of humor. Check. If any of this interests you I’d love for you to come on over to 5ohWifey and say Hi. If it doesn’t interest you, stop by anyways and tell me because, lets be real, that’s why I’m here in the first place.
Founder and creator of LIY, Erin turned her dream of a hobby blog into a full-time career which she now runs alongside the LIY team! When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.

If there’s one thing the LIY Team did this Summer [besides go for boat rides and drink seltzers] – it was read. Audio books, Kindle editions, good old fashion physical copies… you name it, we read it. While we went through a few that weren’t so great, we did find a few worth passing along! […]
