Life: Allow me to formally re-introduce myself.

Hi everybody!!!  I'd like to take a moment and formally introduce myself.
Wait a second!  You've known me for years.  What on earth could I possibly mean?!

I've been hiding behind a computer screen since 2012 and I've come to hate it.
I used to love my self appointed nickname along with all the others I've assigned to people.
Well, to be quite honest, I've out grown them.
I'm sick of referring to my husband as "my man", my baby as "my mushy", and my bff as "biff"!
Just to be clear, I totally call my baby girl "mushy" in real life.  But, that's besides the point!
Without further adieu...

That gorgeous little girl all the way to left is my perfect baby daughter.
Her name is Luciana, pronounced LOO-CHI-AH-NA.
We call her Luci, pronounced LOO-CHI, for short.
But, she will forever be my little mushy mushy...although she's starting to fight her nickname!

That tall, dark, and handsome man in the center is my husband.
His name is Carlos, but he's also fondly referred to as my Cubanito or Carlito.
My friends, family, and co-workers all refer to him as the poor guy that deals with me!

Last, but certainly not least, the woman to right that for some reason screams "queen" is me.
My name is Jaclyn, but people close to me commonly call me Jac.
Just PLEASE, for the love of God, do NOT call me Jackie.  It reminds me of Jackie Chan.

It's nice to formally meet you.
It's also a little bit relieving.  I felt silly hiding behind those nicknames.

Please do me the pleasure of formally introducing you!
**I am NOT asking you to step out of your comfort zone here.  So please do not feel pressured.  Just simply say hello.**


  1. Hello Jax. Your family is gorgeous. My name is Deb. Please do NOT call me Debbie because that is what my mother would call me when she was disappointed in me (which seemed to be quite often when I was growing up).

  2. What a fantastic picture of you guys! You look mah-valous! (You're probably too young to know that reference haha). You know who I am, I'm Elsie :)

  3. Hi Jaclyn.....
    Pleased to meet you! Hahaha! the "boyfriend" of 43 years, is really my husband Greg! sweet Miss my darling granddaughter Vivian....
    Gee....that feels good!
    Have a great week....
    Linda :o)

  4. lmao oh I'm so going to have to use the Jackie Chan one sometime now hahaha

    I don't hide much, although "the cat" is really Orlin, so I guess he hides. Then again that could be me hiding behind him who's hiding behind the cat.

  5. "for the love of God, do not call me Jaclyn"

    -Jackie Chan

    sure the quote is fake, but I'm sure it's true too

  6. Pleasure to meet you. My name is Randy but you can call me Blue ;)

  7. No, no...Jackie Kennedy! :) haha....
    Sweet family photo...and it's nice to know the real names!

  8. Awww the family is adorable and Mushy is getting so big now!

  9. Nice to meet the lovely family. It's refreshing to see a blogger being open about who they are. I may hide behind a pseudonym, but I let my real self be known in my blog. I don't do it all the time, but I guess my readers know a lot about me.

  10. aw, this is so cute! I felt that way too after awhile, I was like why am I calling my husband "the boy" ... lol. You guys are a gorgeous family!!! And I just can't see enough pics of your sweet little mushy!!! :) I love her real name (huge fan of girls names ending in "a"). Thanks for sharing this! I still remember when you were Little Miss Fun until your Grandma I think lead you to think it wasn't the best title. ha.

  11. I understand exactly what you mean! I've been coming out more over the past year on my blog, but I still keep certain people protected for various reasons.

    Jac, it's nice to officially meet you and your gorgeous family. My name really is Rachel so I'll tell you instead that I used to hide behind the name Lita (given to me by a friend because I reminded her of a character from her favorite show). haha
