a day off

this is a place of honesty. i need days off from this stay at home mom thing.

honestly...i think if it were in the cards and a most perfect world i would have a job.

but with the life we live out here on the farm and my farmer's schedule not being scheduled...it's nice to have flexibility of no job when my farmer gets time off.

sometimes he'll call on a tuesday at 10:27 am and ask if baby and i can be ready in five minutes.

you bet! (baby and i jump at chances to get off the farm.)

anyway...my point is that sometimes when farmer gets some time he'll take our best gal and let me be fancy-free for an afternoon/evening. it's glorious and i treasure it.

so as i'm off in the big city my phone will ping with a new text and it'll be a series of pictures. i get sad that i'm missing out on my daughter's first visit to a pumpkin patch, but then i quickly recover because i'm shopping baby-free and that really is the best kind of shopping.

can we take a moment to notice that my gal has no coat or shoes on and amy's team is bundled with flannels and vests? come on farmer...

but aren't our farmer's the cutest? i mean, seriously.

that's better. sweaters and shoes are necessary in fall weather.

we're pretty sure brody (amy's first little farmer) loves kaye. he loves her so much he might be smelling/kissing her hand here?

and i think it's pretty clear that our gal is underwhelmed. or tired.

thank you amy for capturing this cute adventure. i wish i had been there!


  1. love this post ! looks like you all had sooo much fun
    simply sutter

  2. time off for mom and pumpkins for baby sounds like a win win!

  3. Baby free shopping is the way to go, and time off from being a SAHM is definitely the ticket for a recharged battery. Her 'grump' face is pretty adorable too.

  4. The photo where your baby is underdressed cracked me up. She'll use it against you someday

  5. I know exactly what you mean, there are many days I feel like I just need time off! My hubby works a lot so it's usually me and my 3 all day long everyday! Glad you got a break and it doesn't look like baby minded at all!

  6. What a great guy! Some retail therapy is always a good thing! Looks like they had a great visit to the pumpkin patch!

  7. Time alone is so important to us stay at home moms!! Those pumpkin pictures are just the cutest :)

  8. Bless her heart! That first picture of her crying is so cute!!

  9. That little girl is darling.
    ps love all the pumpkins!
