Beddy’s

Beddy’s

I literally squealed when I got the email about partnering with Beddy's. I've been eyeing these for the girl's shared bedroom and they are game changers when it comes to bed making. Since they both share a room, it's pretty tight quarters with two twin beds and not the easiest space for them to make it back each morning. I love this company because there is nothing like it on the market. Each set is all one piece! Yes, sheet, blanket, AND comforter that goes on the bed like a fitted sheet. You also get a sham and coordinating pillow case. The all-in-one feature makes it so easy to put on, make, and wash. The quality is impeccable and my girls love the independence of getting to make their beds without needing help. Also to mention, they LOVE the comfort. Each set has a sturdy zipper on either side that makes it easy and smooth for a kid to zip it up. We chose the Vintage Blush set but...

Banana Pudding

Banana Pudding

Banana pudding is such a sacred, simple dish enjoyed at birthdays, holidays, backyard barbecues, and many other gatherings. It's one of our favorite deserts and my go-to when I'm in a pinch and need to take a desert to feed several. It's also one of my most requested Hayfield Meal treats by Zack. If you want to cart it to the field, just assemble in a Rubbermaid and attach a lid. I made a big batch of this to take to the guys and thought I’d share the recipe I love to use. It’s super unhealthy but I’m not making’ ya eat it so don’t judge, just scroll on if ya don’t like it.⁣⁣⁣⁣  Banana Pudding the Farm Girl way. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ 4 boxes of cream cheese jello2 cups of milk per box (6 cups total, box also gives instructions)tub of whipped cream2 bags of cheap wafer cookies.

Wandering Inn to Round Top, TX

Wandering Inn to Round Top, TX

This past weekend was a check off of my bucket list and such a fun little getaway. Two weeks ago my friend Jess asked if we wanted to take a trip down to Round Top with our daughters and on a whim we booked a room at The Wander Inn. We took our oldest girls to The Pioneer Woman Boarding House almost two years ago but had yet to take our younger ones with us on a girls trip so it was time. If you are planning a trip to Round Top, I highly suggest booking a room at the Inn for the full experience. It's such a laid back, relaxing place to kick off your boots. So much attention was paid to the little details and Amie and Jolie have done a great job with the design of this property. We stayed in the Star Dust Room and it was such a cute room! We had a spacious bathroom, two queen beds, and a balcony where Jess and I would escape to after we got the girls in bed to sit under the ceiling of...

Sometimes when you lose something special to you, pieces of that loss will show back up in other things. In this case, a horse. ⁣⁣ 13 years ago I lost “the one” to a brain tumor and it wrecked my world. That one horse you only get to have one time. The special one. He was my all around rodeo horse and we did it all. He was my safe place, one I could turn steers, run barrels, or hop on bare back in a halter and ride trails for hours. We were both 16 when he passed and since then I’ve had a lot of great horses but not one that compared to him in personality, disposition, athleticism, heart, etc. ⁣⁣ I still have Flash, my heel horse but we’ve been looking for something I could head off of, Zack could learn off of, and something else the girls could hop on when they wanted to. I’ve looked for months and gave up hope long ago I’d ever find another Pete. ⁣⁣⁣Until two weeks ago. I was on a...

A Fresh Start

A Fresh Start

Launch day is finally here! Welcome to my new blog. This space has been a labor of love for the last 8 months and I'm so excited to get back to writing and sharing. After 10 years of blogging, I decided to give this space a facelift with the help of my sweet friend Talia and start from scratch. Most of my ramblings over the last decade have been geared more towards family updates and a way for me to get my thoughts out as journal entries for my kids to read one day. Albeit I will still be doing that, but this space will now serve a few other purposes and as a creative outlet for me. You’ll also find more recipes with Hayfield Meals , Home Design projects, faith, favorite things, happenings on the Rafter PS and more! I have so much planned for my little corner of the web and can’t wait to start sharing with you all. ⁣⁣For the full effect, viewing on a computer is best!!!! Every single...

Paisley + Scout’s Cowgal Bedroom Tour

Paisley + Scout’s Cowgal Bedroom Tour

This post is long overdue as I've had one of my favorite home projects finished up for over a year now. I thought today would be the perfect time to share their room as I was asked to be this week's feature with #thisishowiwestern on Instagram. As a mama to two girls, I couldn't wait for the day that they would get to share a room. Built in best friends, lots of bonding (let's be real, arguing too), giggles, and fun has been had in this sweet little space and it's easily my favorite room in the house. This room was previously Scout's nursery and when it was time for her to leave the crib, we decided to move the girls in together and turn Paisley's room into the play room. (post coming soon) Our home is small and so are the rooms so my main goal was to make it as functional as possible while incorporating their style/personalities within these four walls. Our little ladies are cowgals...
