happy weekend…i need a cocktail


(that's how my grandma used to answer the phone. since she's not with us anymore…i'm bringing it back.)

we've got a fiver goin' on up in here.

ONE //
every day has been a battle as of late. i DESPERATELY want to decorate for christmas, but i feel like i need to wait until the 20th of november…at least. i checked our radio station yesterday to see if the christmas music was playing yet…it's not.

but this time of year often reminds me of when my farmer and i were living in our sweet little trailer and i decorated a little corner. we didn't have a tree. we didn't have a kid. it was a simpler time.

and then we got a house, tree, AND a kid…a lot can change in one year. yowza.

TWO //
speaking of christmas…i spied this little number from p. barn and i almost bought it. as in…i was taking it off the wall at the store. but then i realized it was $120-something and i pumped those brakes and thought, "i can MAKE this."

so i'm going to make it…and won't that make a great blog post.


my farmer is kind of killing it these days. he surprised kaye and me with these little carhartt overalls. and when our little miss has her overalls on…he'll put on his matching carhartt pants. it really is the best.


speaking of my farmer and best gal, he took her on a daddy/daughter getaway last night and to wake up this morning at 7:30 am was the most amazing gift. (granted i woke up at 4:30 am to phantom crying, but quickly went back to sleep.)

so since my farmer and gal were away i ate chocolate chip cookies and popcorn for dinner. i woke up feeling like complete b-hole. won't be doing that again.

i have yet to post anything about kaye's little birthday party, but here's a preview. she was the cutest, little, leopard-print kitty-cat ever. it took three days to get the eyeliner whiskers off.

i hope you all have a nice little weekend!
