Welcome to my page! I’m Stefanie Lopez. I married my best friend and we have a beautiful little one year old boy named Ryder! I started this blog as my way to tell my ups and downs and things I’ve learned along this new “ryde” of motherhood.
Just a little about me……I’m from Dallas, Lake Highlands to be specific. I went to Texas Tech University where I was on the co-ed cheer team. Game days are still so special to me after having cheered on the field. There’s no feeling like it! I graduated with a BS in Exercise and Sports Sciences and a minor in Communication studies. My husband went to Tech too so we are a Tech family. He actually proposed to me ON the double T of the 50 yard line of Jones ATT stadium!
While in college, I formed a love for fitness. I tried my hand in fitness competitions and competed on the figure side. It was fun but took a lot of work, energy and money.
After graduation I went on to work for a marketing company where I was contracted out through companies like GM, BMW and Kia to create digital and print marketing pieces for their dealerships. It was a dream job. I traveled all over the US and Canada going to conventions and meeting with dealerships.
Eventually I got an itch to become a teacher. So I left my marketing job and went back to get my teaching license. I got my license in Health, PE and Teen Leadership. I took a position at a school in Dallas teaching Health, Teen Leadership and coaching the Varsity cheerleaders. I worked there two years till I got pregnant with Ryder. Then I made the decision to stay home and take care of him.
So here I am now! Raising a toddler and telling y’all about it! In addition giving y’all a bit of info on my “fitness travels.” I love to workout. It’s my outlet away from the world.
Hope y’all enjoy my page!
