Ranch Life

Monday, November 18, 2013

We spent our weekend at the ranch.  It was so relaxing, except for the part where our kids didn't sleep through the night. They were both up at 5am on Saturday morning.  We wore them out though & hopefully this week, we get back on our normal schedule.  

Emma was excited to see the red deer, help Papa  move the cows to a different pasture, fish, ride the Ranger & most of all hunt with her daddy.  

We are in the process of building a new house out on the ranch & one of the highlights of our weekend was checking out it's progress. It's coming right along.  It is going to be wonderful & I cannot wait to start decorating!  I have so many ideas!!! :) Emma loved climbing the scaffolding (scared her daddy to death)!

She also has a thing for getting corn at all the feeders & filling her pockets with it.  The girl doesn't mind getting dirty.  I love that she loves it out here! 

We really had a great weekend.  The city is good, but the open pastures, clean air, & slow living are what we love the most. 

Hope you had a great one too!!

Happy Monday, y'all!

I hope you had a great weekend.  I know we did.  It was a busy one working around the house.  I'm refreshed energize & ready to share some exciting news with you all!

Yesterday I launched my business as a Rodan +Fields consultant.  Have you heard of Rodan + Fields Dermatologist?

It's from the doctors who created Proactiv & they have designed 4 skin care regimens for any skin type.  I started using the Redefine regimen back in August as a Preferred Customer & fell in love with the products.

 My cousin became a consultant this summer & begin talking to me about the business.   At first, I wasn't at all interested.  I had a little stint in direct sales with a jewelry company that I didn't love & I didn't really want any part in it.   But after listening to Laura's success & how the products literally sale themselves, plus R+F offer a 60 day money back guarantee I knew I had to try it.  I'm so glad that I took that jump, because the two weeks that I have been in business I've made some significant money to help go towards all of our Christmas shopping & I'm only working 8 hours per week.  As my business grows, I hope to help save up money for our dream house & some other plans we have for our family in the future.  If you are at all interested in the business, shoot me an email-I'd love to chat with you about it & answer any questions you may have.

Favorite Things Friday: Happy Hunting

Friday, November 1, 2013

It's here…it's finally here. It's the weekend that takes precedence over anything else in our house.  My husband would hurt me if I ever scheduled anything on this sacred weekend.  We only do one thing & go one place on the first weekend in November.  College football takes a backseat, birthday parties-we will mail a gift, weddings-no way. The first weekend in November in our family means heading out to west Texas & the only thing on our agenda is deer hunting.  Yes, and I even take part.

I grew up hunting.  It's my husbands true first love. Sometimes I think he may love it more than me.  We really enjoy it.  It's our adventure that we do together.  It gets us out of the city, away from the hustle & we can relax. Emma loves going out to the ranch & this year will be even more fun for her because we are taking her to the stand with us.

Being in the deer stand with my dad are some of my fondest childhood memories.  We'd get up real early- dark early & head out to the blind.  I'd lay in the floor & sleep, color & once daylight came dad would get me up to watch the deer.  I'm excited for Emma to have that with us, but especially for her to share this time with her dad.  I pray that it's a precious memory she will always cherish.

I'm really looking forward to this trip because we have to kill something---our freezer is empty.  We eat venison year round---hamburgers, tacos, spaghetti, meat loaf…pretty much anything you put ground beef in, well we put venison in.  Our garage was broken into at the end of August & they took almost all of our blasted meat.

In honor of deer season here are some of my favorite hunting related things….

Now that we have kids, I don't go as often as I use to, so this is so true in our house.
