Hi, I'm hoping that my blog and my experiences will help to encourage you. Our journey through life can be unpredictable at times but KNOW that if you are a believer in Christ, HE will always have your best interest at heart! (Even when things don't make sense!)
A crazy wind/rain storm blew through Saturday night. I’ve never seen anything like it! Winds were crazy, rain was going sideways and it caused some tree damage! Branches everywhere!
The wind blew the lid off my firepit about 10′ and all my goats went down!! See the one on the right – his head was buried in the ground! LOL The middle goat flew about 4 ft. and was lying in a bunch of water! Nuts!!
Pawhuska Bound – Only an hour away! Pioneer Woman Love
Owen had just started school so he didn’t make this outing. “The Mercantile” in Pawhuska and several other little shops were on our list. The upstairs bakery in “The Mercantile” is a must!
New candy, old candy and ice cream – perfect pitstop!
Back at home, this girl loveeessss going to the pond/lake with her dad, catching tadpoles, little minnows & tiny snails.
Jason is in his element! Fishing from the water’s edge or in his kayak, catch and release! The lake is just down the street from their house, just for the local homeowners.
“Mad Eats” – this place is awesome! I’d seen this giant shakes in their pictures and couldn’t wait to see them in person. They are huge and delicious!!! Looking forward to going back to this place – their brisket nachos were amazing!
So excited I got to be out there for Owen’s 14th birthday!! Time really does fly! A little top golf and pizza was his birthday wish!
Shortly after this trip, Belle has taken up golfing. She’s going to a golf camp and goes out golfing with mom and dad. I think she’s a natural! LOL
I miss these two living closer but Oklahoma is perfect for them! So excited to watch them grow up out there and see where their lives go! xoxo
Sometimes I just buy bananas and wait for them to start turning brown, LOL.
I meant to post this back in February hence the Valentine them, lol. Joanna Gaines’ recipe for banana bread is sooooo good! I love that you sprinkle sugar on the top before baking. Adds a nice bit of crunch!
If you remember, these are the cabinets I bought from Ikea to flank the new fireplace. My neighbor and I removed the window a couple of weekends ago.
I actually finished the insulation, sheetrock and mud & taped the seams but I forgot to add that pic!
I guess you can see the sheetrock, etc. in this pic. The good news is that it didn’t have to be pretty because the fireplace will cover it perfectly! I pulled up the carpet and pad from the area of the fireplace and under the cabinets and I found 1950’s linoleum. I remember finding it in my bedroom too when I finished that floor. The carpet will stay in the living room until next year when I’m ready to replace it with laminate planks. Fireplace install is scheduled for October 12th!!
