Pinterest Roundup- Fabulously Fall Edition

First, thank you so much to everyone who read and commented on my post last week. At the moment I have nothing new to report. My husband will be home this weekend and we will figure out how to proceed next with the goal being an oilfield position that let’s us be together as a […]

We’re All Pinners: My Favorite Pinterest Accounts

Pinterest seems to elicit strong feelings from people — especially women. Love it vs hate it. It sets unrealistic expectations vs I get all my best ideas off of Pinterest. There are people who refuse to join (good for them!), and people who maybe need an intervention. 😉 I really enjoy Pinterest. I actually meal […]

Pinterest Round-Up: Things to Make you Giggle

It’s bad enough it’s Monday, but to make things worse, it’s the first Monday after the time change. If you didn’t lose an hour of sleep this weekend due to Daylight Savings Time, I’m envious. The only way to get through days like this (you know, where my eyes don’t want to stay open and […]

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 […]

Oilfield Elf On The Shelf

One of my very favorite Christmas traditions is the Elf on the Shelf. We started doing the Elf last year and our whole family got into it. My husband and I would argue over whose turn it was to hide our family Elf, (we named her KC) or who got to set her up doing […]

The REAL Pinterest Roundup: Organization!

At the end of each year, I find myself chewing my own ass for not staying better organized. I have good intentions and hopes of tracking all those receipts as they come in, keeping my children’s papers and artwork neat and tidy, and even organizing that under-the-sink disaster. Good intentions, people. The follow-through? Not so […]

The Great Pinterest Roundup, Cleaning Tips and Tricks

We just moved into a new house! Well, it’s a 55 year old house that’s new to us! It’s full of great spaces, and hard floors. Three thousand square feet of hardwoods and tile. Our hardwoods are less than beautiful right now, so I’ve been scouring Pinterest for some tips and tricks on getting them […]

The Great Pinterest Roundup {Friendsgiving}

Thanksgiving is a little more than a week away, and I think it goes without saying that all of us have so much to be thankful for. Our husbands work hard to make sure we have all we need (and want!), but they can’t always be home for the holidays. It’s a sad, but true, […]

The Great Pinterest Roundup: Funny Animals

It’s been a heavy week. When I am having a hard time finding my sense of humor, I know I can always turn to Pinterest. Whether it’s eCards, or damnyouautocorrect.com, or dog shaming, I know I will find something that makes me laugh so hard I cry. Or pee my pants. It doesn’t really take […]

ROW Pinterest Round-Up {A Day in the Life}

I went through my pinterest boards and put together what I think is an accurate representation of a day in the life of an oilfield wife. Or, maybe just a day in my life! If you’re not following me on Pinterest, you should be. I mean, look at some of the awesome things I pin! […]
