The Batirs

Hey y’all! I’m Ali Batir. I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I studied Real Estate Finance at Southern Methodist University and worked in Commercial Property Management for 5 years before quitting to stay at home with our son. I have always loved talking to people and sharing my experiences which led me to start this blog. 

I have been married to Joe for 5 years. We met through church and at the time, he had a mullet. Yes… a MULLET. He grew up outside of Chicago and moved to Dallas to get his PhD in Geophysics from SMU. He is currently working in the geothermal/renewable energy space doing super smart geology stuff. This man is my love, my adventure buddy, and my rock.

Jacob Mauzy Batir is our one year old kiddo. He is Baby Batir #1. The OG. He is an introvert like his dad and loves dinosaurs, doing projects with his dad, and enjoys having his stuffed monkey with him on all of his adventures.

  1. I want to be able to follow your blog! You should add the option where people can put in their email and be added to an update list. I think it’s in the settings somewhere…

    1. Hey!

      You should be able to follow me without any problems. I checked my settings and that function was already enabled. Let me know if you have any other problems 🙂

  2. Hey Ali, wowzers– we have so much in common.
    I love how open you are about your past struggles and how you are stepping out in faith and showing that anything is possible with a little faith :o)

    When I was in the 6th grade up to 8th grade, I too, struggled with anorexia and a huge self body image issue. I did everything in the books pertaining to the unhealthiest of ways to lose weight: throwing up a lot and overall just not eating. I remember the days vividly, and I was only comfortable wearing dark clothes and spikes as bracelets. It was a horrible time for me, and high school didn’t help because then I became a victim of cyber bullying, and learned that girls can be cruel and heartless. This made me sad, although it was right around the time I started understanding what a relationship with God meant so instead of going back into my turtle shell and black clothes, I prayed for them.

    Anyways, thanks for being so open and honest. I am glad I am already following your blog :o)
    Many blessings and I’m so happy for your engagement. Yay!
