Hi friends! I’m Tania Lamb, sometimes my friends call me Lola as an affectionate term. As an ex-CPS worker, I didn’t use my real name when I first joined Facebook. Then when I joined Twitter and other social media, I used @LolaLambchops as my handle, because the name meant something to me. You can read about why I named this site Lola Lambchops.
I started writing for The Adult Side of Disney in 2013, helped rebrand it to An Open Suitcase in 2015, and decided it was time to share more of my personal stories. Lola Lambchops launched in 2016. I am the mom of 5 girls. Yes, ALL girls. We recently moved to Northern Virginia (DC Metro area) from Dallas, TX. I’m still keeping the y’all I picked up there.
I am a writer (known as the Latina TravelingMom) for the influencer network, TravelingMom.com. I was a Spanish-speaking Walt Disney World panelist on the Disney Parks Moms Panel in 2014 and 2015 where I answered 1,000 vacation-planning questions for Guests. I was also selected to be a Role Mother for the Another Mother Runner community for 2016. In 2017 I was invited to be part of the Be Our Guest Press Junket by Walt Disney Studios to help promote Beauty and the Beast. Just in case you hadn’t heard, it broke all kinds of box office records! 😉 I have also been published on PopSugar! You can check out my posts for them about Walt Disney World Resort here and here.
I don’t mean to brag, but yeah, I was the 5th Wiggle once. Yes, those Wiggles. Here’s my 5th Wiggle audition video if you want to take a gander, but I warn you, singing is not a talent of mine. I also like to dress up. Whether running in costume or joining other moms in dressing up every day in October to pick up my kids from the bus stop in Bus Stop Costumes, I like to keep things fun in our home.
Both of my parents are Bolivian, but I was born in the United States. I am fluent in Spanish, but I come with a Gringa accent, which I am often embarrassed about, but I’m trying to get over it. I’ve lived in Ecuador and Russia, so travel is a passion of mine. I love learning about different people and cultures. I travel with my crew (aka my family), my parents, solo trips, just my husband, and with girlfriends. I’m that friend who is pretty much up for anything, except bungee jumping and sky diving. But I’ll hold your purse for you.
These are my girls! No, we’re not trying for a boy. They are ages 12, 10, 8, 6, and 4. This picture pretty much showcases all their personalities. From goofy and sweet to a little shy and sassy to class clown, each one fits a part of our family’s puzzle. They love to create and read. They write stories, make videos, love lipstick, dresses, dancing, and princesses.
But don’t forget the superheroes! My girls also love the Avengers, Star Wars, animals, math, soccer, volleyball, softball, and running. They’re kind, and they’re ready to save the world.
My husband, Ryan, and I met our Freshman year of college at Brigham Young University. We are LDS. Our love story is long and full of joy and struggles. Marriage is hard work, but we’re happy to work at it every day, because he’s stuck with me forever. Ryan is a great dad! Please don’t feel sorry for him living with all these girls. He is set for life with people who will take care of him, because his daughters adore him. He loves baseball, especially the Atlanta Braves, making his daughters laugh with his awful dance moves and corny jokes, and gives me a run for my money in our family Lip Sync Battles. He’s a lot of fun and willingly dresses up in whatever running costume or Halloween costume he’s assigned for our family theme.
We also adopted our rescue puppy, Tucker, Christmas of 2015. Because when you’re done potty training humans, you might as well start potty training dogs, too. He’s a perfect fit, keeps us on our toes, is just as sassy as the girls, and provides male companionship for my husband.
Let’s Work Together!
I’ve worked with brands such as Tide, Kroger, Smucker’s, Ziploc, Hasbro, Huggies, Capital One, Lionsgate, Abbott, Tylenol, SC Johnson, and Walmart Family Mobile. I love to partner with brands that provide benefit to moms, parents, families, runners, and adventurers. On this blog, I write in English and Spanish. I like to keep it real but remember to be grateful. I talk about travel (with and without a large family), family entertainment, being a mom of girls, running (I’ve run 11 half marathons and one marathon), Disney, my Marvel love, having fun, making memories, and yes, general tomfoolery. Life is meant for laughing a lot!
