Hi Everyone! I’m Brittanie, a proud stay-at-home mom to two wonderful little boys (Kayzen and Tarek) and a wife to my junior high sweetheart (Brandon). I live in the beautiful state of Utah and love spending time with my family. I am all about simple living but it comes with a twist.
We are HUGE nerds/geeks. We love gaming, technology, and all the fun that brings. You will often see crafts and recipes inspired by my love for the geek culture. When I am not blogging all of that here, you can find me on TotallyTheBomb.com which is another totally AWESOME and nerdy place to hang! I also blog at Kids Activities Blog which is a fun place for parents to learn kid-friendly crafts and recipes.
How it All Began…
In 2012 this site was originally started as a coupon and money saving resource blog. But to be honest, a girl can only cut so much paper before she gets bored!
So I gave my site a fresh coat of paint, a new name, and revamped the idea behind it!
Now I provide creative ways for a simpler living way of life. I love crafting, baking, sharing life tips, and the occasional cocktail.
Meet the Family behind this blog (The Pypers)
Brandon (The sexy beard man) – He is a full-time game art student and works outside the home. He enjoys anything related to concept art and video games. When he is not working or helping change a dirty diaper, you can find him with a Xbox controller in one hand and a beer in another.
Kayzen – (The Master Builder) He is just like his daddy (looks and all). He is very advanced for his age and can run any technological device you give him. Like his dad he enjoys video games and is a great little artist. He can play a mean game of Plants vs Zombies and enjoys building worlds in Minecraft.
Tarek – (The Extremist) This little guy is quite but the one you have to watch out for. He climbs and destroys everything in his path and works hard to be just like his big brother! He is certainly a momma’s boy and keeps the family on their toes. He is the newest convert to the gaming community (well, once he can figure out how to use a controller). 😉
About Brittanie – (The Domesticator) One could say I keep all the testosterone from getting out of whack. Aside from being a mom, wife and blogger I am also a student. I love the colors turquoise and orange (if you couldn’t already tell from the site design) and I am overly obsessed with Tinkerbell. When I am not near my computer you can find me doing laundry or vacuuming with my buddy Dyson (I could clean all day with that thing).
I hope you enjoyed a little bit about the people behind this blog and I look forward to getting to know all of you! 🙂
