Samantha

Samantha is a farmers wife, mother to one daughter , and part time photographer. She works full time as a food safety inspector for the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture). Samantha grew up in Southern Oklahoma, but moved to the farming community of Minco in 2013, upon graduation from Oklahoma State University, where she obtained her Bachelors of Science in Animal Science. She met her husband Brandon through mutual friends, who also attended OSU, pretty much love at first sight and her happily ever after. Samantha has 4 dogs, known as her “fur-children.” She enjoys spending time with all the animals and working on the farm with her husband and daughter. You can see some of her family’s lifestyle on the farm on her photography website.

Dog treats (in case I need to feed a stray animal or something) 
 
2. Who is your favorite TV mom?
Cassie from Good Witch
 
3. Favorite thing to do with your children in Oklahoma City?
My LO is about to turn one so we have only gone to the zoo, shopping and rode the Ferris wheel (her new fave!)

Definitely agriculture and farming, I like to AGvocate people on the industry. 
 
5. If someone met you for the first time, what is something you’d want them to know about you?
I’m an only child.

Stacy

Stacy grew up in Minnesota, but spent the next several years of her life traversing the globe, temporarily setting down roots anywhere and everywhere. Stacy is extremely passionate about the world of adoption and foster care, having spent a year in Uganda adopting her oldest daughter in 2008. Stacy married her husband Jesse in 2011, and they moved to Oklahoma City to grow their family. After a brief hiatus in Minnesota, Stacy and her beloved family of five returned to Oklahoma City in June of 2017. They are thrilled to be back “home” where sweet tea flows like water and they can fully embrace saying “Y’all”.

Stacy obtained a Master’s degree in child psychology in 2007, but currently uses it only on her own children! A stay-at-home mama since Baby #3 was born, Stacy has stayed busy keeping her children alive and relatively entertained. She loves her little crazy crew fiercely and is enjoying returning to all of their favorite local haunts.

When she’s not chasing her kiddos, Stacy is likely traveling or daydreaming about traveling. She also enjoys coffee shops, copious amounts of “cop drama” shows, and perusing pinterest for ideas that have little chance of ever getting done. But they’re good to have. Just in case.

1. What is the most random thing in your purse right now?
Lego minifigures
 
2. Who is your favorite TV mom?
I literally have no idea!
 
3. Favorite thing to do with your children in Oklahoma City?
There are so many fun things to do in the area with kids!! We love to visit the OKC zoo, the Science Museum, and check out all the splash pads! To change it up a little, my kiddos also like to make a road trip to the Oklahoma Wondertorium or the Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum.
 
4. What are you most passionate about outside of motherhood?
I’m very passionate about adoption and foster care, but that might fall under the umbrella of motherhood! I also have a crazy wanderlust and passion for traveling!
 
5. If someone met you for the first time, what is something you’d want them to know about you?

I would probably want them to know that I love making connections with people and hearing their stories. However, I am also an introvert and so it might not seem like it 🙂  I love small group settings!


That’s a wrap for our new contributors for 2017! Check back very soon to see their first posts!
