motivation…

hard to find the motivation to stay in the house and clean when the sweet spring air is out there…

but then there is the wind. that darn wind.

sigh.

what to do?

i know…blog!

lol

that is a fantastic waste, er, way to spend my next hour. laundry be damned.

but i have nothing to blog about. seriously. i am empty of ideas. i have been struggling with that lately. motivation and finding something that i am excited about. i need a hobby. one that fires my creative side and i can do for a few moments between laundry and dishes and cleaning toilets (ugh) as a reward for functioning like a normal human being. i envy those girls like Becky of Prairie Rose Leather and Beadwork or Twisted Pistol or Linnden of Urban Cowgirl Co. . They all have hobbies…artistic and beautiful hobbies that actually can earn them a little money. Any ideas out there?! I don’t like knitting or crocheting, i can’t paint or draw to save my life…help!! this has been on my mind for a while now. I can’t stop obbsessing over the fact that other than gardening (which i do love) i have no hobbies. my grandparents had a woodworking shop and a painting studio in their home, i am blaming them for my restless creative soul. but what to do? and how to start? where did those girls learn to do leather work? where do i start? i do have a little area all my own carved out in my house where i can make messes, that’s a start!

help me darlings!!!

holy crap.

i haven’t written in this blog in over two years…

that’s craziness!

anyone still out there?!

lol

i’m not sure why i decided to post today…just crossed my mind so i sat down to type.

now to think of something interesting to type about….hmmmm…

i have been keeping up a little in the social media world, my twitter…no, instagram…yes! facebook…kinda. i do follow a TON of fabulous women out there doing their thing to keep western fashion alive and well out there…something that was SERIOUSLY lacking back in the day when i started my blog. and i am very serious when i say i am one of the old babes that definitely can’t or don’t want to try to keep up with these new ladies…they are young, single or newly married (most with no kids = which means FREE TIME AND MONEY!!) lol, and they are doing a fabulous job with carrying the torch. I feel no urge to “compete” or even try to join. i am liking my little farm life with the occasional touch of media in it. although pinterest has me addicted…damn pinterest…oh…i’m active there too! that’s one more place my little farmer’s trophy wife self is out there.

who do i follow you ask!? the first two that come to mind are:

the buckaroo girl…gawd is she a cutie. her accents, bouncy blonde personality and her OUTFITS!!! are a killer combo. i am addicted to her instagram feed!

the bleacher babe…another blonde babe that has carved a niche for herself. love it. she has formed a group called the bleacher babe squad filled with women all over the states that are lovely and have fabulous western lifestyles and they all share over instagram!

when i think of more i will add to this post…

what have you been doing? married? kids? new life? career? i mean, it has been two years. something amazing must have been happening!?!
