Working in Alaska

The thing about Brent working in Alaska is it’s actually pretty expensive for him to do. Well not super expensive, but there are expenses. He doesn’t pay for room, food etc while he is up there – but he does have to pay for things like, industrial products,which is all his gear (Artic Gear, boots […]

He’s Home

Brent has made it home, finally. Three months is a long time and we’ve never gone that long with him being gone away at work. Ever. We were both on the verge of breakdown. But now that he is home there are ways to tell that he is home. The first day was loud, obnoxious […]


Even though he’s gone. Even though I wish he was home. Even though it’s pretty sucky in general. When I see pictures like this….I can’t help but feel a tiny bit jealous. Or maybe more than just a tiny bit. Isn’t that pretty? Oh so pretty…. This is a picture he took while driving. It’s […]

Conversation With Family (Husband) Vol I

The other night Brent and I were talking via the internet. Where he is at now for work, he has internet access. A good thing, as we can talk with the web cam. He can see me, the kids etc. Well the other night he hopped on and we had a pretty brief conversation. I […]


I’ve read some posts lately that some bloggers, women, etc go mushy eyed, lovey dovey and have wonderful posts about their husbands. I’ve had them. The days that he is being extra sweet. The days that he just made me smile. My blog posts show that. But do not mistake anything. My husband is a […]

Changes Pt. 2

Okay, so it’s not really changes. Just Brittany having to adjust to things differently. Which like some, or maybe not, I don’t really like to do all the time. I seriously consider acting like my three year old when the adjustments just are not suiting me. In other words, lay down on the floor and […]


I spent all day trying to get my creative juices flow. Sometimes the one thing that makes my juices flow is a little rap or a little hip/hop. Yes. Me. Brittany. The girl in Texas. Have I told you that I was not born and raised here? Anyway. That’s where the title comes from for […]

The Following Takes Place…

An old post from a different time. My words. My stuff. Written last year around the same time as now. Brent’s made it home and we are all very happy. We were all up pretty late last night but it was all for a good reason. This morning the kids lets us sleep in a […]

More Than…

Many moons ago, I met Mr. Greer. At that moment I did not realize I was getting more than I bargained for. Besides his crazy sense of humor that tends to drive me nutty some days, or his habits that make me question his sanity, I got additions to my family. My family is big. […]

Day One

Yes my friends..he is home. And you now get a picture story to the simple events of him coming home. He comes home and it’s like a tornado around here. Literally. He drops his stuff at the nearest location. Then rummages through his stuff for something tiny. He doesn’t find the item he is looking […]
