Hello World!

Hi Y’all! Welcome to my page! I’m so glad you’re here and I’d love to start off by sharing a little bit about my life! My name is Meredith Carriker, I am a thirty-three year old lover of Jesus, mom of 3 amazing kids, and wife! My husband, Matt, started making YouTube videos in 2011 and in 8 years he has built 3 multi-million subscriber channels. This has created SO many awesome opportunities and crazy experiences for our family and created a huge platform for us in social media. We do our best to use that platform to inspire and encourage and I pray everyone who follows sees Jesus through us. I am a graduate from Texas A&M University with a degree in Civil Engineering, but for the last 5 years I have stayed home with our kids – Adalyn, Annie and Lincoln – and have helped Matt grow his businesses as time permits. This fall our family will enter a new phase of life when Lincoln (our youngest) starts kindergarten. I literally just teared up typing that.  With that quickly approaching, I decided it was time to find my own place in this giant social media world that we have found ourselves in!

I am originally from Arkansas, but moved to the beautiful Texas Hill Country when I was in high school and have called it home ever since. We are enjoying raising our little family in our quaint hometown right outside of San Antonio, Texas. Outside of my busy life as a mom and keeping up with my crazy husband, I love running/fitness, a good project, traveling (the mountains are my jam), home decorating and last but not least…SHOES!  

I’m starting this blog to share my love for affordable fashion, great workouts, fun home projects and things that I have found helpful as a mom on the go! I am by no means an expert on any of these topics, but you will find at least a little useful information and encouragement!

    Hi Mere! Do your skin care products bleach your clothes? I used to use Proactive but it bleached anything my face touched like my shirts, bath towels, sheets and pillowcases. Thanks Proactive. It still didn’t stop the breakouts.

    thank you for your time!

    BTW I love watching the kids in the videos. Yikes! That sounded really creepy! They make me laugh with their silliness.

      They do unfortunately. I have never had problems with my clothes being bleached, but towels and sheets yes! I’ve had this problem with a LOT of skin care stuff so I just use white towels and I have a pillow case that I always sleep on. 🙂

    Just want to say I’ve followed you all on Matt’s channels and have been really interested in hearing more from you. Your faith does show in you, Matt and your children. Really looking forward to getting to know you a bit better. I think it’s really cool that you’re an engineer and hope you talk some about it. God bless you guys and see ya next time!

    I started following Matt’s YouTube activities when I discovered Vet Ranch (and I always yell at him when he says “Don’t tell Mere!”). I also started following Ali’s Vlog, and Mark’s, and Lee’s. Now you have this blog, and I want to see how this goes; you’re an intelligent, strong, and remarkable woman, and I’m interested in seeing more of your approach to life.

    Hi Mere, We have been following you and Matt on YouTube for almost a year now. On all three channels and let me tell you, me, my husband (especially him) and all four of my kids LOVE you guys so much. As a mom of four I am starting the new and scary (for us) social media blogging world and envy what you guys have build up so far. Well done!! You guys are so humble and so down to earth and that is what we strive to show on my blog as well. Keep up with what everyone is doing. PS. So happy you started your own blog. Thanks for that! From one mom to another.
