About Stephanie- The Vintage Modern Wife

Hey y’all! Welcome to my blog, The Vintage Modern Wife!

The Vintage Modern Wife
I’m a Corpus Christi native that moved to Waco, Texas for love. I’m married to this cutie down here. He’s Mathew! I’m his Bambina, which is Italian for “baby” and wouldn’t have it any. other. way. You’lll notice my nickname as a trend for my social media links- @mathewsbambina on TwitterInstagram, and Pinterest!

I started this little blog when we were engaged and called it “The Vintage Modern Bride” because our wedding had many traditional elements that were “vintage” but we liked our “modern” spin on everything, too.  Since our wedding day on December 3, 2011, this blog was revamped and renamed as The Vintage Modern Wife! Shortly after we got married, we brought a sweet fur baby into our family. Her name is Pearl. I love this little 5 pound dog to PIECES and love how she enjoys cudding on the couch with me when I come home at the end of the day.
Our life together is so much fun, but I’m not gonna lie- it’s pretty hectic. I graduated in May 2013 and found a wonderful 1st grade teaching position less than a week after graduation! During my first year of teaching, I became pregnant with our daughter, Addison, and we had the most amazing gender reveal party, a perfectly pink baby shower, and a relaxing babymoon. While pregnant, we found out our daughter had a sacrococcegeal teratoma and I talked about those complications here and here.

I had many pregnancy complications including cholestasis, severe pre-eclampsia, and terrible acid reflux. Pre-eclampsia sent me to the hospital, and I delivered Addison Olivia on August 26, 2014.


Not only did she have an SCT, but she had a hole in her heart which required a PDA ligation surgery, needed SCT removal surgery, and she now faces airway issues after not one failed extubation but two failed extubations.

It has been a long road in just a few weeks of Addison’s life and it’s completely changed our lives. She is such an amazing girl though and we are so thankful to have her as part of our family. I frequently update the blog about Addison and her progress, which you can find here or click her picture on the left sidebar!
