Hi to those of you who are stopping by from the Kelly's Korner link up

My name is Brittany, and I'm married to my precious husband, Brandon. We live in a suburb of Dallas with our insane thinks-he-is-a-dog cat, Oliver. 

Brandon and I both graduated from Baylor in 2008 {Sic 'Em, Bears!}; we met at Baylor, too, so Waco will always hold a place in our hearts. 

I just got a new job as a communications coordinator for a local school district {I used to do public relations for American Airlines...whew!} and Brandon is a business development manager for a recruiting firm. 

We got engaged in March 2010 {you can read about that here} and had a whirlwind engagement, getting married in October 2010 {read about that here}. 

I'm from a small town in southeast Texas, and honestly didn't know there was a "d" on the end of "iced tea" until I got to college. 

My family is always on the go, busy and crazy. I love them to pieces. 

Brandon grew up in Southlake as the middle of three boys. His family is a bit more laid-back and relaxed. Since we're much closer in driving distance to his family, we see them a lot more than my family; you'll see me reference them a bit more since they live only 20 minutes away!

This is us at one of my favorite vacation spots: Orange Beach, Alabama, a few years ago. 

I'm the oldest of four kids {two brothers and a sister}. My oldest brother is a freshman at Baylor, my next brother finishing up his sophomore year in high school, and my sister is finishing up fifth grade. So yes, there's a big age gap there! :)

Brandon's older brother is married to Becca, an attorney; and his younger brother, Todd is our little black sheep. We know he's going somewhere...we're just not quite sure yet! :)

We just bought our first house in September {read about that here} and truly think it might be cursed by the seller. Kidding!...sort of. About six weeks after moving in, our dishwasher leaked beneath my beautiful hand-scraped hardwood floors, leaving us in a hotel and Oliver at the kennel for about two weeks. Thankful for homeowners' insurance! 

We're always doing something to this house, so stay tuned for how we're making this house home. 

When we're not working, we love spending time with our family and friends. We recently joined our church and truly know it's where God wants us to be. 

I enjoy cooking, red wine, and shopping {too much} and Brandon is obsessed with golf, hunting and anything outdoors-y. We both love to travel and can't wait to check the "been there!" box on a few desired travel locales. 

So, thank you for stopping by and for reading! 

If you have any questions for me, feel free to leave me a comment and I'll be happy to answer. Have a great weekend!
