Look of the week ~ Reese Witherspoon

 This week’s look is Reese Witherspoon…I adore her movies and am super-pysched that she is slated to possibly star in a movie called Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. This is the title of an upcoming book written by my FAVORITE blogger Ree Drummond, it’s a true story about how she (a city girl) met and married her rancher husband…for those not familiar check out her blog The Pioneer Woman and read the first half of the story here….sooo good! Anyways, her book is apparently set to be released around Valentine’s Day 2011 and the movie rights have already been picked up and Reese is considering playing Ree….omigawd!! Could you imagine?! I would want either Reese or Kate Hudson to play me…I better hurry up and get my book done!! 😉 Until then, I’ll just have to love and copycat her look, with of course my Farmer’s Trophy Wife twist!

Deer Heads in the Kitchen?

Have I mentioned that I love “The Pioneer Woman“…Ree Drummond?!?

If you have no idea who I am talking about, the short version is…she’s a mom of 4, rancher’s wife and a blogger. She has a site “The Pioneer Woman” that she started about three years ago and is now raking in just under a million a year from it….The advertising space on it sells for big bucks because she gets like tens of thousands of readers everyday! Craziness….

Anyways, I discovered her before Christmas and spent an afternoon reading her archives about their renovation of a guest house on their ranch…they basically gutted the entire thing and started over.

I now am itching to reno…..the style of the house is gorgeous and I want it! The first thing that caught my eye was the kitchen…


I love this kitchen not because I am a chef by any stretch of the imagination, but because I adore the open concept and think the deer heads are fantastic. My husband on the other hand, disagrees…

He can’t imagine why anyone would hang deer heads in a kitchen…that aren’t real.

“Why would you spend money on wood deer heads when you won’t let me hang my trophy ones in the house?!?”

Hmmmm…he’s got me there…ok, so no deer heads…

But can I have the rock wall and cement countertops?

Claire Soup

What is Claire Soup you ask?!?

Only the bestest, easiest, fastest soup in the west! (Yes…I think I’m funny!) It is a soup that my husband named after my sister after he tried it for the first time.

It’s his thing…if it’s fantastic and he really,really,really wants you to make it again, it gets named after you! I have a chili….(from The Pioneer Woman cookbook…but don’t tell him that, he thinks I’m amazing!!!)

Anyways…my sister got this recipe from Rachael Ray…and it’s the best!

1 can of beef or chicken broth

1 cup water

1 package of tortellini

1 cup of grated cheese

Boil the broth/water, add as much tortellini as you want, when noodles are ready, put into bowls and cover in cheese. SO GOOD!!!!!!

Gettin’ Pretty…

Just wanted to share a couple things that I adore.

1)Using lanolin for my chapped lips. Yes, I am well aware that this is nipple cream. And no, that doesn’t bother me in the least! I figured that if it’s great for that, it would be fab for my lips…and it is!! I hardly ever need to put lip stuff on any more, unlike before when I felt like I was applying in every 10 minutes. And if you are little freaked out over breaking out in front of your friends, just put it into an old lip gloss pot…no one will ever know…

2)Using a vinegar rinse for my hair. I learned about this from my dear, dear friend Ree…okay, she might not know I exist, but I love her and her blog…The Pioneer Woman…. Just fill a bottle 50/50 vinegar (apple cider vinegar smells a little better) and water and pour it over your hair in the last bit of your shower. Let it sit for a few minutes and rinse away. It does magical things for people with hard/soft water, or who use products…I LOVE this! It has made a difference with just a few applications..or it’s all in my head…either way, I like it!

3) Now…just need something magical to help lose this baby weight….
