About Bree

Hey Friends! I’m Bree, a stay-at-home mom to 4 sweet and crazy little ones.  Life is chaotic right now, so I’m just taking it one step at a time and trying not to loose my mind. fam1I strive to follow Jesus daily, but fail often….like really often. You will not be judged here, as we’re all doing the best we can with what we have and still learning. I learn new things every day. Some of that, I will share here.

A little bit about me: I grew up in the middle of nowhere, Missouri, where I spent a lot of time outside catching crawdads, cleaning fish or climbing trees.  I was the only girl in a family with 4 athletic brothers, one who played minor league baseball and two who played baseball in college. 171792_191913514163833_692812_oI graduated high school a year early with 23 classmates and moved to Joplin, MO where I went to college and got an associates degree in Biblical Literature.  Fast forward 5 years later and I learned to roll around on a skateboard to mentor young girls at a fun place called The Bridge, this is where I met my husband, a youth pastor at the time.  He was adventurous, artistic and generous.  I knew he was the one when he planned a secret destination road trip for a couple of friends and I.  He gave us a packing list and didn’t tell us where we were going.  We had a Polaroid camera and a grab bag full of crazy games for pit stops.  We ended up in Memphis, TN and by the end of this road trip, I realized I was beginning to fall for him.  His plan had worked.200575_4192629238_9506_nWe started dating and married 8 months later in 2007. Sometime I’ll write a post about how he proposed, of course it was super romantic.1001777_10151682301874239_984502806_nWe lived in Joplin until he graduated college (he was on the 8 year plan-haha) and then we moved to the Kansas City area, where we live today.  My husband is an excellent graphic designer and I worked at Starbucks until the night before my daughter was born and I’ve been a stay at home mom ever since.1498945_10151824378632791_1436135166_oIn my free time, I enjoy going to garage sales and thrift stores.  I do a lot of selling on Ebay to earn extra spending money for our family….and to support my Dr. Pepper addiction.  I kid, I kid, but not really.  I love eating yummy food, especially when I don’t have to make it.  I love traveling and experiencing new places, cultures and adventures.  And I enjoy being active, when I’m not pregnant, of course, when I’m pregnant, I don’t want to do anything.



I started this blog because I needed to find something that was my own, that would help me feel challenged and connect me to other moms or people who might be in a similar life stage. I often get stuck in a rut of mundane routine, boring meals and a lack of motivation so I wanted a place to share my struggles and successes.

I also love reviewing products and this gives me a platform to share my findings with people who may be interested in what a real mom of real kids, who does not have a perfect house or perfect meals on the table every night, has to say. I believe that viewpoint is sometimes lacking and void, so here I am. Me. Talking. About Stuff.
This became Bree Talks.  I would love for you to join me on my journey and share with me, some of yours.
