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 […]

coconut maple granola recipe

ok so sunday joe and i spent the day cooking and baking and doing a little food prep for the week. i really really really wanted to make something healthy with our first jar of maple syrup we received from the people who make it in our sugar shack in the back yard. sounds sketchy […]

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! […]

farm junk lamp

i have had these farm junk lamps for about a year now that i bought from a friends shop before he closed and it moved to the east side of the state. i actually have a pair of these but two on this little table would be way too much. they’ve been sitting in storage […]

Max and Erma Tortilla Soup Knockoff

ok  so pregnancy cravings are in full effect. but it’s not for one category in particular. it’s like nothing will sound good to me until something does. that is how i ended up mowing down some olga snackers last week sunday. (ps did you know a fricken basket of those buggers has like 1300 calories?!) […]

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 […]

i don’t know anything about babies

yesterday i was a total loser and had my appointments confused. ultrasound is in about a week and yesterday was just a normal check up. i went in to the office and the nurse handed me a tiny strip that looks like it tests the chlorine levels in my pool. she showed me to the […]

fit pregnancy

after we went through our loss with our first pregnancy i made a bit of a list of things that i wanted to accomplish (but didn’t) before i ever got pregnant. since our first pregnancy did not go as expected i took it as a sad second chance to get it right this time. to […]

nursery inspiration 2

so this morning is off to a stellar start. (insert sarcasm here) i went to the gym around 6:45 (good) went to the dentist (not my favorite) then discovered that some loser has spent about $10k in amazon coins and bought video games as well (super sucky) after searching high and low for some sort […]
