About Formula Mom

Welcome to Formula Mom!

Meet Mariah aka Formula Mom

Meet Mariah!

A little bit of mom added to wife and special education teacher is the formula for Mariah, aka Formula Mom! Here are 5 quick ways to learn more about me!

  1. Mom. I became a mom in December 2010 when my little man, W, was born. Just days before he was born I also completed my Master’s of Education in Educational Administration. Oh, and I got my Christmas presents all wrapped on time too!
  2. Teacher. I’ve just started my 8th year teaching public elementary school. I’m teaching special education preschool this year!
  3. Wife. I met my husband J on match.com and we got married in July 2008 after dating for 2 years. We’re proof that internet dating can work! I did have to go on my share of bad dates before I finally got lucky!
  4. Family. Our little family is rounded out by my mother (who is a blessing to us all) and our 2 dogs. It’s a busy home but we wouldn’t have it any other way. I never expected to be living with such a large family but it has been an amazing experience and a great way to raise W! It does have its challenges too.
  5. Blog. I started Formula Mom in March 2011 as way to share what was working for me as a mother and what was not working. I had so many plans and some of them have worked out perfectly while others have thrown me for a bit of a loop. One day I finally came to the realization that parenting was about figuring out a formula that works for your family and Formula Mom was born!

As a content creator and brand promoter, my work has appeared at PTPA Blogaholics, Gift Caddie, WhatToExpect.com Word of Mom and Word of Mom News, and Pampers Pregnancy. I am an experienced Brand Ambassador and Twitter Party host/panelist. Brands I have worked with include Munchkin, Sony, Disney, Skype, Hormel, and Move100.

In May 2012, I established the Noise Girls. We are a small group of female bloggers dedicated to raising brand awareness by combining our reach and our voices. I’m also a co-owner of DisneyDIY.com and Mommy Mindset Media. I have a passion for word of mom marketing and social media outreach!

I’d love to hear from you! You can contact me at mariah@formulamom.com!

  1. Kristin from our growing garden says:

    Boy, is that true about motherhood- nothing goes as planned and we will die trying to make our plans work. Found you from Smart and Trendy moms follow on friday!

  2. The Mom Pledge says:

    I met my hubby on Match.com, too! And I have a December baby, born in 2008. :)

  3. Now this is a mommy blog I can read! Insightful and down to earth about parenting rather than the stuff often seen. Definitely following you now on my journey to conceive with my husband. I found you through The Catacombs Society.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my page, I'm your newest follower via GFC! I will be taking part on Sunday again! Talk to you soon!


  5. Your story is SOOO similar to mine! Met my hubby on Match as well. Married in 2007 and welcomed our son in January 2011. I too work full time. So glad to have found your blog via the Makobi Scribe blog hop! I'll be following via GFC. Cheers! :)

  6. Andrea G. says:

    Your story is similar to mine, too, except that we didn't meet on match.com (but no judging for those that do!). We are trying for our first, and we already know we will cloth diaper and want a gender neutral crib set in primary colors lol.

    Also, I saw on your Twitter that you're in Houston! I am in Houston as well! :o)

    • Hey, not everyone can meet on Match.com! :) I hope your journey to conceiving your first goes smoothly! I hope that for everyone that is trying! What part of Houston are you in?

  7. Aww, I just noticed that you and your hubby met via internet dating….not sure how I missed that before…WE DID TOO!!! I know lots of people turn their noses up at that…but I just saw the other day that like 1 in 5 couples or something met via internet dating of some sort or other!!!

    • It’s so weird because we didn’t live that far from each other, but our circles didn’t overlap at all, so thank goodness for internet dating! Granted, it took me a while to find the one and he got lucky very quickly!

  8. I think all mothers have some kind of a plan on how they want things to go, with the birth of their child, and that child’s upbringing, but you soon find out that you do have to learn that there is no such thing as a plan, you really have to learn to be flexible and you have to have a lot of common sense, because those are the smarts you will use as your child grows up!! My daughter was the best child growing up, loving and sweet, and kind, and very aware of other people’s feelings, I loved being around her!! Then she grew up and turned 15 yrs. old and it was like the aliens came down and switched my child!! She is 20yrs. old now, in college, and at the moment getting extra credit for spending 3 weeks in the Costa Rica Rainforest!! I’m very proud of her but she is still a brat!! :0)

  9. Love the video–nice to put a pic to the words! Great job Mariah!

  14. I met my hubby on Yahoo Personals! We have been married almost 5 years now (next month!) and it turns out we worked not even a mile from each other but we had never met until we found each other online. :)

    Don’t you love the people that say, “You could get killed meeting someone online?” Um, you can get killed meeting someone in a bar, at the grocery store, in church…. :P
