About Quaintly Garcia

Hi. I'm Adriana, a 36 year old wife and mother living in beautiful Southern California. Welcome to Quaintly Garcia, formerly known as “and baby makes three...” I started “and baby makes three...” in 2009 a few months after our son Julian was born.  I wanted a place to chronicle my family's life, milestones and adventures!

Quaintly Garcia has a little bit of everything: recipes, party planning ideas, travel ideas and bargain shopping. Most recently after buying our first home, I've added home DIY projects and décor.  The main subject of this blog however, is our 6 year old son Julian, and as of January 2015 our daughter Samantha.
Hubby and I met on a blind date back in 2003, fell in love, were engaged 11 months later, and were married in March of 2006.  JD came into our life on May 16th 2009 and made us a family.  Samantha came into our lives January 30th, 2015 and made our family complete! 

Julian is an amazing boy.  He is curious, smart and impulsive; he is helpful, loving, and even on the worst of days he can make you smile.  JD has both of our best and worst qualities condensed into a 6 year old little package.  He loves drawing, building Legos, pizza, super heroes, robots, dinosaurs, Phineas and Ferb and his favorite movies are Ghostbusters and Guardians of the Galaxy.  He dislikes mashed potatoes, waking up in the morning to go to school (although he loves school), and cleaning his room!

Samantha is the newest member of the family! She is a little ball of sunshine.  She's curious and energetic, she loves kisses and cuddling.  She thinks her brother is hilarious, daddy is the most comfortable seat in the house, and mommy is her favorite person to cuddle with, especially at night!

Noel is the complete opposite of me, they do say opposites attract! Although our personalities are completely different we share common ideas, morals and most importantly goals. His military background makes him a little rough around the edges, but he is loving husband and an amazing daddy, a geek at heart, a total smarty pants and a great RN.

I am the only child of a passionate Dominican mother and a creative Argentinian father. They are the most wonderful loving parents and grandparents anyone could ever be blessed with. Southern California has always been the place I call home, but I was actually born in Queens, New York. I work full time at a large medical practice in the South Bay and have been in the medical field for 17 years. I love all things crafty and DIY. I'm a total Foodie and love to cook just as much as I love to eat! I adore photography and admire talented photographers. I adore my family and thank God everyday for blessing me with this wonderful life.
