75 Hard

75 Hard

I completed the #75hard challenge yesterday and it feels so good to say that. To know I started something tough and finished strong. This summer, I was in a funk and knew in my heart that I needed to lean into something that would challenge me in all areas of my life, especially mentally. This challenge isn't about fitness although it has those aspects to it. But it's all about training your brain, gaining grit, and saying yes to hard things because those are usually the most important. I've noticed certain patterns in myself that I just wasn't proud of and the main one being that others could count on me but I couldn't. I would flake on myself time and time again. I had no mental clarity, was exhausted, and felt like I was at a complete standstill in my health/fitness journey. I was going through the motions of everyday life. I shared my journey on Instagram and you can find all of my...

Valley S Design Co

Valley S Design Co

I'm thrilled to share a small business I have purchased from in the past and then recently came upon on instagram again a few weeks ago! Valley S Design Co. made by turquoise hoop dreams come to life and was so sweet to send me a few goodies to review (and a code-see below) for you all! This was the very first necklace I purchased from her "YEEHAW" and is one of my favorite pieces to wear. This comes in a set and it so cute and versatile! These are hands down the most lightweight hoop earrings I've ever owned! I love that they are also a statement earring and can be paired with a cute outfit or jeans and a tee! As a small business owner myself, you know how important it is for me that we support each other. Jennifer and I have a lot in common as farm and fire wives and we both raise longhorns! She is amazing at her craft and loves making jewelry...

Homemade Peach Cobbler

Homemade Peach Cobbler

My Grand pick up a box of fresh peaches for me last week and they were some of the best I've ever eaten. I decided to make my family some peach cobbler for a treat after supper (so sad I didn't get any because I'm still doing 75 hard) but we did freeze some so I can make it again later. You can make cobbler from canned of course but fresh is the best in my opinion. This from scratch recipe is super easy to do and comes out great! Fun fact: peaches are probably my favorite thing to eat if I had to pick one. When I was pregnant with Paisley, all I ate were peaches and I'm surprised she didn't come out smelling like one. HA! My great grandmother taught me how to can growing up and we canned a lot of things but our best prize always came from our peaches. We even one The State Fair of Oklahoma once and were featured in Country Woman magazine. Ingredients: 5-6 peaches peeled, cored, and...

Growing Babies

Growing Babies

I just wanted to pop on and share one of our growing babies. If you've followed me on Instagram, you know that we decided to jump into the registered part of raising long horns last year and this is our very first registered baby we've raised. We have some big goals and plans for our growing herd and are excited to explore this part within TLBAA with our girls. This little bull calf is such a neat little dude and is already sold. He will be going to his new home in November. Mulberry is such a great mama and I'm excited for more babies out of her. We pick up a new heifer and bull this fall and I'll be sure to update you when we unload them on the ranch.

Our Family Daily Rhythm (including homeschool, home life, and business ownership)

Our Family Daily Rhythm (including homeschool, home life, and business ownership)

With juggling two girls, a business, farming, firefighter life and homeschooling, you can imagine the chaos of our day-to-day. Having a daily rhythm helps us all be as intentional with our time as we can. If there's one thing I've learned this summer, it's that I can waste a lot of time and feel overwhelmed with the remainder. I ultimately feel like my day is gone before it's ever started. Being intentional and learning to adopt a rhythm rather than trying to stick to a strict schedule,(let's be honest-like we could if we wanted to) for our days rids me of a lot of anxiety and helps me obtain some ownership of the day, feeling at peace and with a little control if our day ends up not turning out like we expected. I love a schedule and do try to be diligent about specific things within our day but I also try to have a lot of margin so if things don't go as planned or if we just want to...

Easy Crockpot Roast

Easy Crockpot Roast

I love this meal because it’s easy to prep and there’s no work on my part. It’s ready when I come home and easy to transport to the hayfield. TIP: I like to marinate my roast overnight for extra flavor. I don’t measure but I mix garlic salt, onion powder, pink Himalayan salt, and pepper into a bowl and rub all over, heavily coating it. Wrap in plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator. To cook, grab your crockpot, quarter Yukon gold potatoes and cut your carrots unless you’re using baby carrots. Add a layer to the bottom of your crockpot, set roast on top, add the rest of your potatoes/carrots, slice a white onion into strips and throw in, cover with water until all is covered. Pop lid on and put on low for 8 hours. When you come home, your house will smell amazing and all you have to do is serve! I usually throw some green beans on the stove and...
