My Girls

There is nothing like spending quality time with my husband. There is no doubt that him being away on hitches truly helps us appreciate our time together so much more! Sometimes it is hard to reconnect after 15 days away from one another. Other times we reconnect like we haven’t missed a beat! Either way, […]

Stop Judging, Start Loving

Why do we do this to each other as women?  I’ve done it.  I’m sure you’ve done it.  We take something that has happened, put it through our own filter of personal experiences and think someone has wronged us or doesn’t understand us.  We are OFFENDED.  We are going to let them know about it. […]

It’s Not Good Bye, It’s See Ya Later

  Over the past year I have shared my life, my experiences, my views, and my world as a working oilfield wife (OFW). I have expressed my thoughts on this crazy lifestyle, I have related my own role as a wife, and I have elaborated on my survival tricks as a mother, but today I am writing to say farwell. […]

I Love Being An Oilfield Wife BECAUSE……

  All too often I think I dwell more on the bad and sometimes forget about all the good that comes along with being an oilfield wife (OFW). If my husband were to hear me say this he would say “Honey, you’re a woman!” and give me that playful grin, but seriously sometimes I forget […]

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 […]

Thankful: Keeping Christmas Well

I’m thankful for the genuine friendship of my friend Vanessa. Even though we live almost 2,000 miles away from each other, I know that I can count on her anytime, day or night, and that she’ll always be real with me. I’m thankful that there are people who care. Whether they are holiday bell ringers, […]

5 Free Fixes for the Mid-Hitch Blues

I’m finally sitting down to write this post — 3 days later than I intended — and tonight was a difficult night. It started well: I threw together some Crock Pot Teriyaki pork chops for the little one and myself. Our little bird ate an entire pork chop, then asked for more! She cleared her […]

Snail Mail: Send A Little Love

The summer before my sophomore year of high school, my family and I moved from northern New Jersey, to Indiana. Even though I grew up moving a lot, this was the first move that was really hard on me. I was growing deep roots in the Garden State, and I was quite certain that I […]

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, […]

You Ask & ROW Answers: Friend or No?

Hello ROW!  I am looking for some advice/input on a odd situation going on.  I have a “friend” (really my only friend right now) who is in LOVE with my hubby.  I can’t blame her, he is amazing!  Obviously, that in itself is an issue!  She won’t admit it to me, and doesn’t know that […]
