Unusual decor…

 A while back I posted about The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond’s kitchen that I LOVE, where she used wooden deer heads. It was something I had never seen that before but now I see them everywhere! I think this is a sign we need them in the house…

*Have to say, I love everything about this living room…the orange, the lamps, the shelves, the cowhide rug, I could go on for hours!*



*Again, cowhide…is this a theme?!*

*Love the matching but not matching set here*


 *Love this kitchen too!*

Peely Paint Rusty Vintage White Room


*Teal, chocolate and wooden deer head…can’t get better than that!*


*Not so hot for the minimalistic look. What are your thoughts?*


 *Loving the white shed light in this one too!*


Have a great day!

Look of the week ~ Carrie Underwood

 This week it is the newlywed herself…Carrie Underwood.

Love this outfit, again..not so hot for the white pants. I would go with jeans, and with the crazy weather we’ve been having, I think jeans would work fine!

Navy shirt….short or long sleeved.
The same super-cute pants from last week’s look…gotta wear them more than once! And while you’re at it, go for the same sandals too…oh so  practical. :)
Gold hoop earrings from Etsy…
Just Another Pair of Hoops  BUT    TEXTURED    Gold fill Wire Wrapped Hoop Earrings

Add the long pearls….

Now the “Farmer’s Trophy Wife” touch…

And why not go for matching cuffs (channel your  inner Coco Chanel)…

New favorite salad recipe…

I came across this salad recipe on Tasty Kitchen, my favorite recipe site.

Ok, that’s a little lie.

It’s the only cooking site I have ever bothered to look through…can you tell I “love” to cook?!

What do sites do you like/love? I should be on the look out for more because harvest meals are just around the corner!

This salad is so good and is different from the usual….

Over our house last night…

This was our view to the north last evening…my husband called me from the tractor (he was out raking).


It went east over the farm and didn’t hit us.

Sure looks like there was hail or something in that! Hopefully not too much damage….

This week on the farm…

Ok, this should be titled “The past two weeks on the farm” because I didn’t get my rear in gear and post this earlier. Will you forgive me if I say I was busy?! Do you believe me?


Last week was both slow and busy around here. With rain just about every day, haying slowed down to a crawl. And since haying was on again/off again, my husband kept busy with the 100’s of other projects that pile up when we aren’t looking. (Changing oil, fixing fence, mineral out to cattle,etc.)

*another thunderstorm moving in*

We also got to go into the Calgary Stampede with the kids (on a day that it POURED!) and had a blast. The grounds were empty and no lines for food. Love that! And we all really enjoyed all the indoor activities, lots to look at and do. My daughter’s favorite were the miniature horses and chicks…

 my husband enjoyed visiting with all the friends we ran into and I loved the…wait for it….shopping! In the past I’ve been disappointed with the trade show that the Calgary Stampede hosts. In years past all there seemed to be were Sham-wows or food processors. Not my idea of fun shopping. But this year, was by far the best I have ever been to. There were numerous western wear booths and home decor ideas. Yay!

A couple of days last week the hay was a little closer to dry (the hay has to be dry or else it rots inside the bales once they are stacked), so we were able to get out and do a few rounds….the next picture is of square baling. We don’t make a lot of these as they are too little to feed the number of cattle we have, we would have to use A LOT everyday. We mostly make large round bales as this way more hay per bale = less trips out to feed cattle. The square bales that we do make we keep for just in case situations…cows calving in the barn or for the horses if they stay in the barn for whatever reason.

And then, thankfully, this week has been a little more sunny, so we got out to do a little more baling…this time with the round baler.

 Have a great day!

In my kitchen window…

These are a couple bouquets that my sweet daughter picked for me…

I think this might be a hidden talent…watch out Martha Stewart! :)

Miranda Lambert concert…

On the last Saturday of the Calgary Stampede, I got to go to the Miranda Lambert concert!!

Or so I thought.

I bought the tickets thinking Miranda was the headliner.

Not so much.

Apparently, she was the opening act with Jason Aldean as the headliner.

I was a little upset to say the least, and my friends got a good laugh.

Oh, well! It was still a great concert!!
