#coolmumclub: Meet the members…Domesticated Momster

This weeks #coolmumclub Meet the Members guest really needs no introduction. She’s pretty legendary on the circuit, and is one of the most savvy bloggers I’ve come across to date. Not only does she regularly link up to #coolmumclub on a Thursday whilst running her own Linky, singlehandedly, but she is also a fitness fanatic, and a cracking writer to boot. She takes no prisoners, says it how it is, and will leave you a little bit grateful you took time to read her stuff.

Trista is also the first ever blogger to send me her entire guest post, pictures, badges, text code and all in HTML making my life a hellufaload easier. She’s one slick blogger babe…

Hello there peeps, humans, mortals, and folks! I am Trista, the mad momster behind Domesticated Momster.

Some of you may know me and read my blog, for those of you who haven’t well what the heck you waiting for??? I promise if you don’t piss yourself spit your beverage out laugh out loud at least once then I am not doing something right. Well, that depends on the post you choose to read I guess. I blog about whatever rolls into my brain which sometimes can be crazy, funny, vulgar, and sarcastic all rolled into one little ball of psycho happiness!

I literally started my blogging adventure on a whim. I had moved to a land far far away from the land I had lived in for 20+ years and became very depressed. I drove my husband crazy (we moved for his job) crying all the time about how I missed my friends and that I was losing sight of myself. I blamed him a lot and yelled at him even more because all he did was work ALL. THE. TIME. I literally had not a single person to relate to in my new surroundings.

So one day he told me I needed to find a hobby. The kids were getting older and I was coming out of the coma induced mommy fog of having 3 babies in 3 years. Yes you read that right. 3 babies in 3 years. My girls are 11 months apart. At one time I had 3 in diapers, one barely off the bottle, one on the bottle, and the other latched to my boobs. And a husband that was only home once a month for a few days.

Getting off track here…back to the hobby part…

blogging domesticated momster about me

So here I was staring out the window one day in the office, feeling sorry for myself, when BOOM! the idea of starting a blog like literally popped into my head. I knew absolutely NOTHING about blogging. All I knew is that there was something called WordPress where you could write and post it online.

But first I had to come up with my name. And literally 5 minutes later Domesticated Momster was bought and paid for. The rest I learned by trial and error and numerous amounts of cussing and almost throwing in the towel. I actually did for several months. I started my blog in October of 2014 and somewhere around February of 2015 I decided it was either going to happen or I was going to kick the bucket close it. I am glad I made the right choice.

I have met so many wonderful people blogging. People who have real mommy issues just like me. Who’s kids are little a**holes sometimes JUST. LIKE. MINE.

I don’t think my husband realized that my blog, which was supposed to “just be a hobby”, would soon become another member of our already (at the time) 7 person family. I think there are still times that he thinks, at some point, I will grow bored with it and quit doing it. But as long as I can find the time…and I always find the time…even if it’s while walking on the treadmill…I will be blogging.

A few facts about me…

  • I was born and raised in Wyoming USA
  • I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada USA when I was 19, went to college and cosmetology school at the same time…quit college because I was making a fab income making people beautiful and I loved it! Getting paid to gossip all day ROCKS!
  • I was married once before but was told I would have to take fertility drugs to get pregnant which ended that marriage because I wanted nothing to do with fertility drugs.
  • I was in a band (lead singer) and dated the bass player for 5 years…still never got pregnant. He was lazy so I ended that relationship. He thought he was going to be a rockstar…last I knew…he was living in his mother’s basement.
  • I met my current hubby on the internet and we were pregnant, without drugs, five months after we met and then they just kept on coming. All he had to do was smile at me and I was knocked up.
  • I currently live in a town of about 6,000 people and it has it’s pros and cons.

I would love for you to come connect with me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, and I also run a linky every Thurs-Sun #momsterslink that is welcome to any post old or new!

I want to thank Sarah for giving me the opportunity to introduce myself for the fab #coolmumclub! She’s one awesome lady for taking the time out to not only come up with this idea but to follow through with it!

      Thanks Becky. And thank you again Sarah for taking the time to introduce me and for hostessing the fab #coolmumclub. I’m in on a little blogging break while taking some time to spend with family and life but I will be back!

    Fab post. I wouldn’t know where to start putting everything in html (well, I would but then I’d panic it was all wrong because it still looks like a foreign language to me). I live in a place with approx. 6k people too – emotions can run quite high sometimes! Lovely to meet you and thanks to Sarah for such a fab series. (PS Sarah, Talya, I am SO sorry I still haven’t got my sh** together to send you anything: it’s STILL on my to do list and I will get there one day!) #coolmumclub

      Thank you. HTML is tricky to figure out sometimes. Took me a lot of trial and error. Actually everything I’ve learned I owe thanks to google and errors lol.

    I’ve recently discovered your blog Trista – I love it! You are very funny and I love the graphics you produce too! I loved reading the facts about yourself – you’ll have to do a post about the town where you live, I’m very intrigued as to what it must be like in such a small town. Great series Sarah I love reading about our lovely fellow bloggers xx #coolmumclub

      Thank you so much for checking out my blog. Although I’ve been horrible at writing lately. Thanks for the great idea about blogging about my town. I’ll have to take some pictures and put it together. If you look it up on google maps you can see that I am smack dab in the middle of nowhere.

    Fab post! I love the line about all Trista had to do was smile and she was pregnant. No drugs needed! Brilliant 🙂 #coolmumclub

    1. DomesticatedMomster Reply

      It literally felt like that! Lol

  5. ljdove23 Reply

    Ahhh I love Trista, what a fab post! It’s funny about the pregnancy thing because the same happened for me. Was with my ex husband for 11 years, we had endless rounds of fertility treatment for our two boys and yet when I met my now husband I was pregnant a few months later and we then had three babies in two years, some things are just meant to be!! #coolmumclub

    1. DomesticatedMomster Reply

      I so agree! All my failed relationships led me to my best friend and he’s a great dad and husband. We’ve had our ups and downs but lots of valleys. Thanks for the love! Right back at you!

      Yes it has. It truly has become a huge part of my life and sometimes takes a life of its own. Thank you so much for reading.

    Ha – this is great, I love DomMom (am I allowed to shorten, or is that over-familiar?!)
    3 kids in 3 years must be nuts, I thought my 21 month age gap was bad enough!

    1. DomesticatedMomster Reply

      DomMom is fine…that’s my nickname on Twitter actually given to me by NottinghillDaddy. Someone once told me that not only did I have 3 babies in 3 years but that it was 3 babies in 25 months. It’s crazy when I put that into perspective. Thanks so much for reading :))

  11. justsayingmum Reply

    Oh Trista I’m a huge fan of yours and you make me laugh out loud lots so you are definitely doing your job properly! Love hearing a little bit more about you so thank you for sharing! Love the fact that you were a singer in a band – any chance of you setting up a band where you live now – oh but ‘you ain’t got time for that’ – you’re a blogger! Love how it’s consumed you too – mine started as a hobby too but I can see just how that hobby can take over – in a good way most of the time! #Coolmumclub

    1. DomesticatedMomster Reply

      I’m a fan of yours too!!! And yes the blog has consumed my life many times. That’s the reason I have to take a step back sometimes and set it aside. Life is too precious sometimes to pass it by plus it gives me more blogging material

  12. Mess and merlot Reply

    Hi Trista – how you find time to blog I don’t know but I’m glad you do 🙂 Love getting to know a bit more about you and you life across the water, Look forward to reading more! #coolmumclub

    1. DomesticatedMomster Reply

      Thank you! I have been meaning to take a peek at yours as well for I love your blog name and I always find that interesting blog names lead to interesting blogs. Plus I love wine :))

  13. Rhyming with Wine Reply

    Already a huge fan of yours Trista, and your awesome blog! (Well who isn’t?) but it’s fab to find out about your story and what made you reach for WordPress! It does not surprise me that you were in a band as you are definitely the most Rock-Star of all bloggers!
    Thanks for sharing MMT and hosting! Cake and wine to you both x

    1. DomesticatedMomster Reply

      Thanks sweets! I absolutely think your blog is so awesomely clever! I don’t know how you manage to rhyme and make it all make perfect sense!

  21. Katie Gregory (@therewegoblog) Reply

    I’ve read a couple of your posts so it’s really nice to hear more about you! I don’t know how you survived 3 in 3 years with a husband who was barely around. I’ve struggled with 2 in 3 years and have mainly shouted at him for not leaving work early enough (which is probably why he’s always home so late…!) #coolmumclub

  22. Becky Pink Reply

    Loved reading about Domesticated Momster, what an inspiring tale xx #coolmumclub

  23. My Petit Canard Reply
