Favorite Gifts for a New Baby

One thing that’s always booming in the oilfield world is babies. Do you feel that way, too? Right now we know a few expectant oilfield families (ourselves included), and a few oilfield couples who just welcomed new little ones into the world — and there’s nothing better than gifting incredibly cute, incredibly adorable, incredibly awesome […]

Real Oilfield Wives Pinterest Roundup: My Current Obsessions

I talk about Pinterest in just about every other post I write. Doesn’t matter if it’s a “Becoming a Frugal Momma” post or an “Oilfield Cafe” post; Pinterest will find a way to sneak in there. Probably doesn’t help that I spend an obscene amount of time on the app while my kids are playing […]

Get Your Fix with Stitch Fix!

I’ve had a mini-obsession with monthly subscription boxes for quite awhile now. In fact, I love any service that includes delivery to my home and and doesn’t require me dragging my kids out in public. Shopping with two almost-two-year-olds is NOT my idea of fun and typically leaves me rushing home to a bottle of […]
