weekend recap gloomy weekend

this weekend was so gloomy here in michigan and it had a serious impact on both my mood and productivity. friday….was absolutely gorgeous?!? i mean 75 and sunny in march?! i’ll take it (as long as it doesn’t ruin the fruit crop again and i have to pay $7 for one pint of cherries at […]

finally friday lamb edition

ok i won’t spam you today with more pictures of our newest lamb… just kidding hahaa. i can’t stop it’s too cute. it was so hard to leave and come to work i just want to play with it all day. it’s so curious about the world and has such a funny personality i could […]

our first lamb

we got a little surprise last night out in the barn! We had our very first lamb on the farm in our very first official lambing season! joe and i have been at a conference in downtown grand rapids every day (and night until like 10pm) and the sheep have been showing absolutely zero signs […]

weekend recap about town

this was such a relaxing fun weekend i don’t want it to end. but alas it’s monday and i barely slept a wink last night. around 8pm or so i started hearing squeeks coming from somewhere. upon further investigation there are either bats or mice in the walls. i stood in one of the older […]

finally friday out and about

it’s finally friday and with seriously zero plans this weekend i’m anxious to get out and about. just where to i’m not sure. there are no fleas or antique shows going on (that i know of) and the weather is going to be blasted cold to be working outside… so what i’m going to do […]

pregnancy workout

i’m coming up on my one year anniversary at phyx in grandville and i’m proud to say that this just might be the longest i have ever stuck with a workout. i know i’ve said it before but there is something special about this place. the women and men there are so encouraging and welcoming. […]

sheep ultrasounds

we had an exciting day at the farm! our sheep had their ultrasounds for lambs! i don’t think most people get ultrasounds for their sheep. pretty sure that is reserved for the novice farmers. but when the vet offered to come out my curiosity got the best of me. we’ll see how that changes once […]

weekend recap spring forward

i like the idea of spring. i like the idea of jumping forward into it but i’m not happy about losing an hour of sleep AND these ridiculous snow storm we received this morning and is supposed to continue on through the rest of the day. however i made it to work (courtesy of joe […]

finally friday party weekend

i don’t know if it’s technically called a “party weekend” if you are not out drinkin and are in bed by 9pm but i’m going to call it a party weekend. why? because i have TWO fun parties to go to this weekend. thats right…. this lady is going out on the town. look out! […]

my favorite non maternity sources

let me just start out by saying…maternity clothes are butt ugly. i do not want to wear a shirt that says “i swallowed the watermelon seed” or any stupid crap like that. which seems to pop up every time i google “cute maternity clothes”. seriously does everything have to be so kitschy? i feel like […]

weekend recap farm stuff

this weekend was such a blur that was surprisingly (which shouldn’t be so surprising) taken up by farm stuff. farm stuff, work and some rest finally. friday night we got home from work and made some fajitas using the leftovers from the week and watched a movie … kind of. we both fell asleep around […]

finally friday shopgirl edition

this has been a long (in a good way) busy week. i am so grateful for the weekend, especially because i get to be shopgirl!!! the past few mornings i’ve had the hardest time getting out from under the covers even though i’ve been getting myself a full 8 hours of sleep. i think it’s […]
