Let Me Introduce Myself..

Happy Thursday, y'all!!

Every so often I think it's so great to share a little about ourselves...our likes, dislikes, and the quirks that make us who we are. These are some of my absolute favorite posts to read from other bloggers out there.

I'm Brittany, and I'm the proud wife of Joseph, who I lovingly refer to as Jojo! We've been married for almost 12 years now, and we've experienced many ups & downs. While married life hasn't always been the easiest, my best memories include this wonderful man. He's my best friend, closest confident, biggest cheerleader, and one true love! I'm so blessed to wake up each and every morning with him!
He's seriously smoking hot too!!

We are the uber-proud parents of three amazing little humans that keep us on our toes! They are smart, kind, & hilarious all in their own individual ways. Being their mama is by far the most trying & most rewarding job I've ever been given. Stephen, Carson, and Nataleigh truly are our pride & joy!!

Along with these three beautiful babies, Joe & I suffered an early miscarriage between Carson & Nataleigh, so we know that one day we will meet that precious baby that we love dearly! Miscarriages are something that many don't talk about, but it's a pain unlike anything else. It's a loss that you never truly get over, yet God uses that miscarriage today to continue to remind us of His goodness. That baby we never met is so loved, yet He gave us 3 babies here on Earth to love. How great is that love?!

The Hensley 5 are so lucky that we live in honestly one of the most beautiful places ever, and yes, I'm totally biased.
{I don't even care though}
Tennessee is another love that I have in my life. It's been a sanctuary for me during some of the most difficult days of my life. It rescued me in ways I never knew a state could. It represents my past, present, and our future. It's home to the Smoky Mountains, Dolly Parton, and my precious VOLS, and it's truly "Home Sweet Home to me!

Here's a random like, dislike, pet peeve, & fact about MOI!


To me there is nothing, & I mean nothing, better than a pedicure in my book. It's been a hot minute since I last spoiled myself with a pedicure, but that will soon be not true. I am planning a little date for me and Jojo to go get our pedicures on. It's one of our favorite little indulgences ever, and we are both over-due!
{He also may kill me for sharing one of his little secrets too}

These are three colors I'm loving right now!!


Basically I am one of the pickiest eaters ever, however, I'm not a high-maintenance picky eater. I will pick around whatever I don't necessarily like!
Totally me!!
I'm totally trying though to make myself less of a picky eater. A couple years ago I taught myself how to eat sweet potatoes, and now they are one of my favorite foods. It may have taken me a year to learn to enjoy them, but I didn't quit! Seriously though, anything that has a crunch {celery, onions, pickles, cucumbers, etc} makes me sick to my stomach to just think of!

::Pet Peeve::

Grammar and Spelling errors!!
Oh my stars...There are so many tools in this day and age, especially online, that makes it so easy to correct and check spellings and such!

::Random Fact::

I'm a pretty HUGE sports fan, and until recently college football has been my favorite sport to watch on television. Every Saturday would begin with College Gameday for the Hensley 5, and now I have a new love....English Premier League football!! I love me some EPL football (soccer). I have a team that I've cheered for pretty intensely for the past couple of years, and I am totally invested in the Chelsea Football Club!
{also we're the reigning EPL champs ;)}

Maybe my love has lessened for college football because my Vols haven't been playing so well lately. I still love them the same, but I'm more entertained by EPL football than American college football!
I still believe that there is nowhere better than Neyland on a Saturday in the Fall!!

I've loved sharing a little bit about myself today, and I'd love to learn more about you! Here are some of my favorite pictures of my favorite people in our favorite places!

See y'all tomorrow for some more Friday Favorites!



  1. Grammatical errors and misspellings are my weakness. But then again, I don't proofread my posts sometimes and I am sure there are a ton of mistakes in them. Hahahaha! I love all of your pictures and learning even more about you! Like your love of soccer, and your love of pedicures. Dolly is the best! :) Happy Thursday my friend!

    1. Dolly is for sure the BEST!! This was a fun post to share. I just think you learn so much more about a person through those little quirks!! Happy Thursday!

  2. Thanks for sharing. You have a lovely family. I'm with you on the pedicures...love 'em. I can go without the manis but sure do love the pedis. There's a girl who I'm friends with who is a big fan of the Tennessee Volunteers. It's weird to me because we don't hear of that where I live but she travels to TN several times to watch them play.

    1. Oh I ❤️My Vols, even when they are difficult to love! Ha! Thanks for stopping by!
