Mary Website Bio:Mary was born and raised in Oak Cliff, near the downtown Dallas area, and just recently moved out to the quaint and quiet world of Red Oak, just 20 miles south of downtown. She married her college sweet-heart, Felipe, and they have two spunky girls, Natalia (March 2014)) and Catalina (June2016) – girl power! She is a full-time creative communications director, a stay-at-home mama, a super cool school/soccer/ballerina mom, and just recently launched a small crafting business with her hubby. Mary loves to catch the best kid-friendly food spots, has way too many snapchats of her littles lunches, and probably has the most insane dance battles in her living room with her tots. She also volunteers at Scottish Rite Hospital to spend time crafting with some of the hippest kids in town. Follow her silly adventures on Instagram!
