Mexico

We got back from vacation this week! Zack and I finally went on our honeymoon...almost 8 years later. Getting married young and broke didn't provide the opportunity to take a trip before life started but we made it. We finally did it and it was the best trip ever. I shared our trip on my instagram but had several questions about where we stayed, who we went through to book, resort hospitality, my outfits (which makes me laugh-I'm not a fashionista) and more so I thought I'd blog about the whole experience. I'll try to go in chronological order of the trip so I don't miss anything. First let me start by saying, if you are on the fence about going on a trip with just you and your husband, DO IT. And don't feel guilty about it. I did at first. It was expensive, we would have to leave the girls for a few days, we were spending time on ourselves, etc. That's OK. After being a fireman's...

Mother’s Day 2019

Mother’s Day 2019

I had such a blessed Mother's Day this year. Zack had to work at the station but the girls made me feel so special. I woke up to some sweet handmade cards, a keychain Paisley made me from school, and a new cutting board with our brand on it. We spent the day doing what we love, riding horses and having a cookout with some family. We didn't get any photos of all three of us together but we managed to snap a few silly ones while we were at the barn getting the horses saddled. Scout had her first bucking experience (not Tonto's fault) and took it like a champ and rode it out. She even got right back on despite getting a little upset. She's going to make a great cowgal and hand around the Rafter PS. My tee is from a friend's online shop and says "Raising kids and cattle." Check them out at Little Coyotes. Shoes are Ariat from my shop. That evening we made a visit to see Zack at the...

Little Buster Toys

Little Buster Toys

I have been waiting to release this post for some time now and am excited to share my partnership with Little Buster Toys! If you asked my what my girl's favorite toys were in our home, it would be Little Buster. We've accumulated a few pieces over the years and were recently gifted a few items in partnership and absolutely adore every single thing! As a farming/ranching family, our girls love these because it truly is our way of life and what we do. The quality is top notch and something we will be able to keep and hand down to our grand kids one day. I love that the construction of the equipment pieces, panels, chutes, and pens are all built to scale, made of heavy duty steel and that the animals are hardy. The girls have the best time putting together corrals, hauling hay, shipping and working cattle. Who are we kidding, so do Zack and I! Ha! These toys are absolutely beautiful and...

Our Favorite Ranch Kid Tees

Our Favorite Ranch Kid Tees

I'm so excited to share one of our favorite places to buy the cutest graphic tees for your little cowboy or cowgal. Talia with Little Coyotes, owner and designer has come up with a line that is such a need in the western industry. Cute, affordable kids tees are hard to come by that fit our lifestyle and her little shop has made it possible. I bought this adorable "I'll Love You for Heifer" tee for Valentines but I love that it's so versatile she's able to wear it all year. I also love the 3/4 sleeve fit. This Cowhorse tee was our first purchase with her when she launched and is my favorite tee! Such a cute piece to throw on with jeans and boots. I love her art style and she can draw a horse like no other. She drew our Cowboy Santa tee for Farm Girl this past Christmas and it was such a hit. So, if you're in the market, please support our friend and her beautiful small business. She not...

How We Treat Ourselves and The Message It Sends to Our Daughters

How We Treat Ourselves and The Message It Sends to Our Daughters

This has been on my heart to share for sometime. Mainly because it's been something that I struggle with but also because I've seen the impact that small comments, remarks, and self shame towards myself have had on our children. Ones that I've not only felt deeply on the inside but have verbally announced in front of them. It's no secret that I've been on a health and fitness journey over the last 11 months. One that I've had mountain top moments and low valleys in. One that I've battled and also had peace in. One that I've lost 65 pounds so far on but have also stalled out for the last three months with. It's not a race but I tend to make it feel that way. I've always struggled with self image, how I thought I should look based on worldly views or the latest magazine on the grocery store rack. Playing that comparison game scrolling through instagram with airbrushed models half naked...

Our Bedroom Gallery Wall

Our Bedroom Gallery Wall

I love gallery walls in homes. I'm not the best at them but one of my favorite things when it comes to home design is using your decor to not only reflect your style but also the people that live there. I see so many homes that are absolutely gorgeous, have the trendiest decor, gorgeous subway tile, and look put together but the problem is you have no idea who lives there. I really strive to print and frame photos, decorate with items that we love and are more personal to us while also being functional, and to make our house truly home. I think gallery walls are a great way to do that. In our room, we have two large newborn portraits of the girls framed but the rest of the room is all about us. It's our space and I like to make it cozy in here. It's a retreat and our area. I love incorporating wood and metal elements and try to carry that throughout the house. I also love letters. I...
