Welcome to Expect the Unexpected!

My name is Elena and I’m excited to share my journey with you! I’m a mother to a beautiful, rambunctious, and determined almost one year old. She’s the light of my life and I couldn’t imagine life without her. My husband is in the Air Force so moving is starting to become sort of a hobby for us. We are currently living in Oklahoma but getting ready to live in Hawaii. Right now I am  a stay at home mom, but before the birth of our daughter I was an elementary school teacher for five years.

When I’m not chasing around little Tori I enjoy shopping, crafting, trying out new DIY projects or recipes, and of course spending time with my friends and family. Brunch and happy hour are my jams. (That’s how you know I’m almost thirty.) On any given weekend you can find me trying out new places to eat with a glass of wine or a specialty cocktail.  I hope you enjoy my blog and if you are wanting to know a little more about me check out my post 15 Random Things About Me.
