Scout is 6

Scout is 6

I try my best to get the girls photos of just them each birthday. I don't always accomplish this but we were able to have my friend come over last weekend to snap some of Scout. I cannot believe our baby is six years old already. Time flies with the second one and they grow up so much faster. She wanted some with her cowpony, Tonto and best pals, Chief and Smokey. I think Hannah captured her personality perfectly. She can make us belly laugh to tears. She loves big, has the most contagious laugh, and her personality is unique and fun! I'm so grateful I get to be your momma, Scout! We love you "one hundred million more" baby girl. Happy Birthday.

BBQ Chicken Spuds

BBQ Chicken Spuds

I made these glorified baked potatoes last night and they were a hit! It was super easy and didn't require a ton of cleanup or make a mess. I'll gladly carry the title of "Queen of the Crockpot" because it's my most used kitchen appliance. No shame in my game, y'all. You can make about anything in those and I'd love to hug whoever came up with the genius invention. I'm convinced it was a farm or ranch wife. If you are needing to feed a crew, I highly recommend these spuds. A few chicken breasts and a sack of potatoes can go along way, especially if you are trying to budget. This is not a tractor friendly meal like his lunches and snacks are. Often times the girls and I will take Zack supper as that's our only time together in the summer when hay is going on. Tailgate dinners have become our mobile kitchen table. I set up a little "fix it yourself" potato bar in the back of his truck...

Summer Tablescape

Summer Tablescape

I recently freshened up the kitchen table with a new centerpiece. I try to change it up seasonally with things we have around the house. I ended up reusing a few items that were already there like the garden tray and beaded garland. Another item I use often instead of runners are calf hides! The give a more rustic feel and are easy to clean. The "vase" was an old crock I had in the cabinet with a $10 grocery store bouquet. I love having fresh flowers in the house all summer. Most of the time we pick wild flowers but I couldn't pass up these pretty blooms. I splurged on a new candle the other day and the adorable Brahma shakers are from one of my favorite thrift sites, Single Wide Style. The frame is from my store and the sheds Zack brought home after spraying in the tractor a few weeks ago. I love when we finds me things like that. It doesn't take a lot to give a space a fresh new...

Flying Spade Favorites

Flying Spade Favorites

If you've poked around on my instagram for any period of time, you know how big of a fan I am of Flying Spade Co. May is a dear friend of mine and everything she does is handcrafted from scratch with genuine leather and old chap hide that is top notch quality. We started carrying her items in 2019, debuting them at the NFR in our booth and have been stocking them since. I wanted to share a bit of my personal collection I've slowly gathered piece by piece. Many of these I have in my store such as the conchos, stamped book marks, bleed knots, and braided hoops. I love how light weight and versatile they are. You can literally wear them with anything. I pair them with denim and a cute graphic tee or throw them with a dress and my tooled leather heels like in the photo below. I have a very different "style" I guess you could say. I never gravitate towards what's trendy or "in" rather I...

A Letter To My Girls on Their Childhood

A Letter To My Girls on Their Childhood

To my little girls of the prairie,⁣When you are grown, I hope you remember how rich your childhood was unplugged. I hope you remember long summer days playing in pastures, riding your cowponies, picking paintbrush, and letting your imagination determine afternoon plans. ⁣⁣I hope you remember exploring in the creek, hunting for arrowheads, witnessing new life come into this world as you watched a new calf being born, and fishing at the pond. ⁣⁣I hope when you’re grown, you never forget to look up at night to see the bright stars, the magic of an Oklahoma sunset, or the memories that resurface of riding with your Dad in the tractor when you smell fresh cut hay. ⁣⁣I hope you drive with your windows down and play our favorite songs that were on repeat when you were little. I hope you read the same books we’d get lost in and relive the stories with your own kids. ⁣⁣I hope when you’re grown,...

Our Master Bedroom

Our Master Bedroom

I'm excited to finally share our master bedroom with you all! Of course, there are still some things I'd like to change over time (like planking the walls and new trim) but I love how it is for now. I'll link everything below! If you share to Pinterest, please tag and give proper credit. This was one of my first Farm Girl Home Design Projects before I start taking on clients. I needed to build up a portfolio of some different rooms and decided, why not my own? I'm a big neutral girl so everything has a pretty calm tone with a few pops of color. It makes adding things easy when the color pallet isn't all over the place. Our headboard was custom made and a Christmas gift about 5 years ago. The brand pillow was from my store when we started making them about 6 years ago but we no longer offer them. I've had these floating boot shelves for over 5 years now in this evolving corner but I...
