Welcome to the House of Hood Blog! We are so happy you’ve found us. We live in the burbs’ right outside of Portland Oregon. My name is Chelsee and I was born and raised in Portland and my husband, Ryan is from Indiana. Ryan and I met in Portland about a week before he found out he was being transferred to Indiana for his job. We dated long distance for 7 months before I made the move to the Midwest. I found a position with an amazing handbag company. Ryan and I were married a couple of years later in Hawaii. We soon found out we were pregnant with McKinlee and decided we needed to move closer to family, so back to Portland we went!
We have two daughters; McKinlee Mae and Madison Jean. It was an accident that they were both named after presidents and McKinlee has the names of two different mountains. They were born on 9/8 and 7/6! We expect big things from them. We also have a golden retriever named Dexter and two kitties named Lexi and Lola. We have quite a full house. We love celebrating and throwing parties, summer, decorating for holidays way too early, and everything pink. We hope you enjoy reading about our extraordinarily ordinary life!
Thank you so much for stopping by, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to us! We’d love to hear from you!
