Confessional Friday: Getting to Know You

It seems like more fun friends have been finding my blog lately, so I LOVED when Leslie over at A Blonde Ambition decided to host a Getting to Know You post today.
Here’s a bit about me…
I’m Brittney.  I have mostly lived in Arkansas my whole life (the exception being a short stint living in Branson, MO during my teens).  I grew up in central AR, went to school in southern Arkansas, grad school in NW Arkansas, and now live in the River Valley.  I LOVE my beautiful home state. 
I’m married to Tyler.  He used to own a motorcycle shop, but he sold it and is currently looking for a job.  We’ve been married since 2010…coming up on our 4 year anniversary. 
I have degrees in Communication

(Mass Comm and Speech Comm) and while I do love public speaking, interpersonal communication and the power of words, I really enjoy my job in marketing as a writer.
We built our home a few years ago (all while I was finishing grad school and we lived 1.5 hours from where we were building….talk about learning marriage compromises!!) .  Our house isn’t anything extravagant, but it’s perfect. 
We have a fur baby, Mikey.  He is SO full of personality and spunk, and he’s spoiled rotten.
In my free time, I love doing fitness things.  I teach Zumba Fitness classes, and do other fitnessy things like try new classes and run (or at least, try to run!  I hurt my IT band/knee last year and am getting back into it.)  
Last year, I did 13 races (plus one triathlon!).  It was exciting.
My favorite band is Hanson, and last year I saw them 4 times.  They aren’t touring this year, so I’m going through withdrawals.  Hopefully I’ll be able to catch a couple shows though.
I taught myself how to quilt, and am trying to complete 6 quilts this year.  One down…
I am so blessed with great friends.  I made some great friends through blogging, at work, at Zumba, and at church.  
I love shopping, cooking healthy, watching TV shows on USA (CAN NOT wait for Suits to return!!), and spending time with my family. 
I started blogging a few years ago while studying about Computer-Mediated Communication in grad school.  I loved reading blogs and joined in.  And I’m SO glad I did.  I’ve found an outlet for thoughts, a way to keep memories in one place, and SO much support and friendships.  
Thanks for popping over to my corner of blogland.  Leave me a comment.  I’d love to hear from you!


  1. Um yes we are definitely catching at least one Hanson show this year. And every year. Duh. 😛

  2. hey there! im visiting from the link up party and now i have the song mmbop in my head! thanks! im a new follower, nice to meet you!

  3. Arkansas really is a great place! Looks like you will be seeing some winter weather this coming week. Since I am so far south I’m not sure we’ll be as lucky or unlucky depending on how you look at it. I use to do Zumba and I loved it. After baby I just don’t have the time but would love to start back soon.

  4. wow you go girl! triathlonS!

  5. I’ve always wanted to try Zumba, I just don’t want to look like a dork.
