Hi! I'm Amberly.

Welcome to Mr and Mrs Brislin, a lifestyle and your "occasional" travel blog (if that's what we're calling it). I use my blog as a place to talk about life... the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sure, I may share photos from vacation (the good parts of life), but that isn't without sharing my struggles. 

I was born, raised, and currently live in Lexington, Kentucky. I'm married to my college sweetheart, Mr Brislin and he's the most attractive human being to walk this earth, is always making you laugh, has a strong work ethic, a lover of fishing, news watching and coffee drinking man, with lots of hate for an un-made bed. 

Together we have two dogs, Hawk and Polly-both which are rescues.

Late nights are my favorite, I'm a HUGE sports fan. If you can talk Kentucky basketball and NBA, then we can be friends. 

I'm a planner, and a list maker, BUT at the same time I like to live life in the fast lane. 

I'm extremely OCD, and a firm believer that the toilet paper goes    o-v-e-r always!

You know you're "adulting" when you admit to yourself you enjoy reading-I am a lover of a good mystery and love story (Nicholas Sparks gets me every time). 

Neutrals are my thing, not a fan of bright colors. 


What is the purpose of your blog?

Good question, honestly I do it because I truly enjoy it. I want to be able to connect with others, and couples alike-if that's through marriage, travel, advice... or just life in general, whatever I'm feeling or doing in the moment, I want to share that with you. 

How did you and Hunter meet?

We met at college, we both went to/graduated from Morehead State University, and from there the rest is history. 

How did Hunter propose?

Oh my goodness, it was the sweetest. Story short... we were vacationing in the Bahamas, and had scheduled to swim with dolphins. While swimming with the dolphins, our dolphin Noah swam to me with a sign saying "will you marry me?" It's definitely a moment I will cherish forever. 

When did you get married?

October 1, 2016 and what's even more special about our wedding day is that we chose to get married on my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary. 

What is the best marriage advice you have received?

Never go to bed mad. No matter who's having a bad day... you, or your significant other, always kiss and tell one another good night, and love you.
