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 […]

The Working Mommy Menu

Being an oilfield wife and juggling a full-time job, makes mealtime nothing less than creative and challenging especially when you are a mommy too! I will be the first to admit, when Daddy is away at the rig, I am 100% guilty of nights when cereal is what’s for dinner, popcorn is the main course, […]

Shrink for Good!

Originally posted on The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. You’re thirsty. You walk to the kitchen, turn on the faucet, and fill a cup with cold, refreshing water. Or maybe you grab a bottle of water out of the fridge as you run out the door to pick up the kids from soccer. What if […]

The Oilfield Cafe: Best-Ever Chex Mix

I live for Chex Mix. Not the kind you buy from the grocery store, the homemade kind overflowing with buttery, crunchy goodness. If I had one food to live off of forever, this recipe just might be it. One of the only good things I ever received from my mother-in-law (besides my husband, of course!) […]

Spring Into Fitness

Despite the fact that winter seems to have a death grip on most of the nation, spring is in the air, and before we know it summer will be here. Summer means shorts, flip flops, tank tops, and *eeeeek* swim suits. In just a few short months you won’t be able to cover up that […]

Suck It Up, Buttercup!

There’s been a lot of controversy as of late on our Facebook page regarding oilfield wives and what is perceived as whining. While maybe we do whine a little, I think most of it stems from the fact that we go for days and weeks on end with little to no adult conversations, we miss […]

The Skinny on Bountiful Baskets

Oilfield life often comes with living in small towns with inflated prices on groceries. Selections are scarce, prices are high, lines are long, and trying to find good-for-you foods is just plain inconvenient. If you happen to live in a location near a Bountiful Baskets drop-off point, I highly suggest taking advantage of what is […]

So You’re Moving to BoomTown, USA… Now What?

You hear about oilfield boomtowns everywhere in the media, some outlets even going so far as to compare them to a modern-day Wild West. The thought of actually moving to one of these towns can be daunting and the entire moving process can be overwhelming. Who should you talk to? Where will you go? Will […]

Your Guide to Monthly Subscription Boxes

It’s not a secret that I love to shop. I especially love shopping when I don’t need to leave my house! Monthly subscription boxes… they’re everywhere these days. Beauty products, crafts, beer, toys… Honestly? I never really knew these types of services existed a year ago. One day, a friend told me about Birchbox and […]

13 Reasons Why I Love My Oilfield Man

Thirteen years ago, in a little chapel in Las Vegas, there was a young couple saying their “I dos” in front of a a man by the name of George Cottonwood, with no one else around other than a guy with a camera. They posed for the obligatory photos included in their wedding package, then […]
