A Stay-at-Home Mom’s Guide to Space Saver Bags

I recently decided that since I’m now a stay-at-home mom, I should have closets that reflect my new station in life.  I thought those space saver vacuum bags looked like a fairly affordable way to achieve this. The following is my personal experience. Step 1:  Choose the correct size for the items you wish to […]

I Will Just Start Tomorrow…

This is the year I get healthy and look smoking hot in a bikini.  I start today! Now that I think about it… It is New Year’s Day and I’m still hung-over from the night before and fried chicken sounds good.  It is no problem if I start tomorrow, right? I was going to start […]

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, […]

Leaving Again

I thought I had this thing down to a science. “All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go” We have our little ritual in place. “I’m standing here outside your door” Everyone knows their job. “Cause I’m Leeeeaaaavin’ on a jet plaaaannee, Don’t know when I’ll be back again” We know we’ll be sad […]

Preparing Your Home for Sale

For some of you, oil is in your blood.  You have grown up around it and many family members are in it, it is simply what you know.  Real estate is like that for me.  As a child, it was Saturday mornings at Home Depot so my Dad could repair something at his rental property. […]

My True Calling – Being an Oilfield Mom

Time is going too fast. My kids are growing up so quickly that I wish I could slow down the clock.  I’m thankful that I get to be a stay at home Oilfield wife because time may be flying by at warp speed, but at least I get to make the most of each and […]

Yellow {Makes Her Happy}

I’ve held many titles in my life thus far. Many of them were given. Some of them I worked very hard for. Most of them I prayed for. All of them I dreamed of. Well, not all of them. I was born a daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter and niece. I was then blessed with title of […]

Stop the Hate

I’m going to say something that will possibly make me the most hated Oilfield Wife on Earth, but I feel it should be said: Can we stop hating people who love low gas prices, please? Look, I get it, BELIEVE ME.  Low gas prices are leading to layoffs and that is affecting our ability to […]

Let’s Get Real

I’m not sure if “The Real World” from MTV is even on anymore, I believe I’ve moved out of the prime demographic for MTV.  Nonetheless, I’m reminded of the tagline from the show, “… Find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real.”  I would like to change that to, find […]

He’s Gone

It was early March 2011. I don’t remember the exact date, as I wanted nothing more than to erase it from my mind forever. It was the day I tried so hard to stop. My husband was about to board an airplane that would take him south on an adventure with many unknowns. My heart […]
