This girl has style…

Just thought I’d throw out a new post idea for year #2 of The Farmer’s Trophy Wife….if I come across any images of girlies with great style, I’ll post them!!

I found this one and adore the casual look but oh so pulled together at the same time! I think a leather jacket is now added to my  “to buy” list!!!

What we do for fun…

So we have yet to find a one horse sleigh for our darling Danny to pull around….
And my husband is just itching to get out there…

This one’s my favorite….Danny stopped to do his “business” and my husband almost landed on his face in it! LOL…

And things went well till they hit some deep snow….and that’s the end of my baby sleigh…

Oh well…it was fun while it lasted!!

Although as soon as this one broke he wanted me to go find the other sled….no thanks!! My kiddies need SOMETHING to ride on this winter!!!



p.s. since we did this…we’ve found a stone boat to hook up…we are planning to go out on Christmas Eve…I’ll take lots of pictures!!

I totally forgot…


It came to my attention that yesterday was the 1st Anniversary (Birthday?!) of my blog!!!

OMG, ACK and OH NO!!

I let this slide by and didn’t even realize it!

So I am here to say thanks and Happy Birthannivarasy Day dear blog!

It has been a wild and fun ride over the last year, full of new friends, learning new skills, 15 minutes of fame and giveaways….and I have loved every minute!!! What a long way we have come! From 12 hits a year ago…to, well….more than that now! I can’t wait to see where the next year takes us…

And thanks to all you darling readers….without you this would just be me writing for and to myself. And while that would be ok…you all make this amazing. Thanks and I love you!!!

So here’s to a new year….new adventures and new friends!!

And…..I did promise a Shepler’s giveaway….and I have the “stuff” but I had to UPS it to myself  ’cause I kinda overspent on my Vegas trip and for some reason the customs people don’t like that….so when it arrives, I’ll put a fabulous package giveaway together for Shepler’s and to celebrate my blog’s 1st year!!!!

Buckle It…

One of my favorite purchases at Cowboy Christmas was a buckle for my little girlie. She always wants to wear one like her daddy, and we have yet to find one that matches her personality….

Till now!



I’ll let you guess which one I got…

Lynette Kellogg is the owner and creator of these fabulous buckles and each one is a work of art…Her website isn’t up right now, but you can email her at and keep checking her site…

From my mom…

My mom sent me this email and I wanted to share….because I agree with all my heart.

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on a CBS Sunday  Morning  Commentary.

My confession:

I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish.  And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees…  I don’t feel threatened..  I don’t feel discriminated against.. That’s what they are, Christmas trees.

It doesn’t bother me a bit when people say, ‘Merry Christmas’ to me.  I don’t think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto.  In fact, I kind of like it.  It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn’t bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu .  If people want a creche, it’s just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians.  I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period.  I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country.  I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God as we understand Him?  I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too.  But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different:  This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.

In light of recent events… terrorists attack, school shootings, etc..  I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.  Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school.  The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself.  And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide).  We said an expert should know what he’s talking about..  And we said okay..

Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.  I think it has a great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell.  Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.  Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.  Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit.
If not, then just discard it… no one will know you did.  But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in. 

My Best Regards,  Honestly and respectfully,

Ben Stein

More Vegas….

Are you sick of this yet?!?


Here are a few shots of our room…we stayed at the Flamingo and upgraded to one of the new rooms. I liked it.


And there was a HUGE tv…which we never even turned on.

And a tv in the bathroom mirror…that we only turned on to be able to say that we did.

The men out there are in disbelief, I know, I know….we were to busy visiting to bother with the tvs…sorry!


A few other pictures of some stuff that caught my eye….

That’s all for now….don’t worry, there are still a few posts to come…two of my favorite finds are up next week!!
