oh hey, friday! | some good news, some bad news

oh hey...hey friday! you snuck right up on me this week. not mad about it...especially since this sunday is father's day!

we have plans for my farmer on sunday, but i hope he's able to spoil himself a little and take some time for just himself. he deserves it...he had both girls by himself while i went back to california on sunday. more on that in a few...

but now, we need to get your link-up on!

1 | grab this here snazzy summer-themed button and link back to september farm.
2 | link up your post at the bottom of this post.
3 | tell all your friends + have a fantastic friday.

1 | so...if you didn't know (which you probably didn't)...my sister was pregnant. but now she's not because she had the baby!!!! some details...

kelli and her husband rob didn't find out what they were having, so it was a complete surprise.
kelli hates any sort of attention, so i'm pretty sure she's told exactly four people she had a baby. so very celebrity of her.
SHE HAD A GIRL! seriously. a GIRL! you guys...i couldn't have been more thrilled with this news. you see - my younger sister also has a little girl, and now my older sister has a girl. we're just a girl family. it's what we do.

i'm beyond thrilled to present baby reese's very first online debut! kelli allowed me to snap these pictures and i'm just so in love with little reesey-poo-poo. yeah...i'm going to try to get kaye to call her that.
2 | let's keep this train going! last weekend i ran a half marathon in nearly 90 degree heat. i was dumping water on myself at every aid station and begged a man with a hose watering his yard to spray me.

in celebration of surviving the race...

3 | ummm...did we all see the new summer-themed oh hey, friday! button? you guys! it's so cute! don't forget to update your button, mmmmmk? we gotta stay hip and with it.
4 | RIP iPhone

great news everyone! i set up the gals' new swimming pool yesterday and i was so excited for them to try it out. it's so awesome. the girls love it. our little oasis on the farm.
i loved it too...until bitty decided to plunge face first into the water. naturally, i jumped into action. i threw my brand new iPhone 6 and rescued my baby. 

i threw my phone directly into that stupid oasis. it went swimming. i hope it enjoyed it...because i didn't. 

the phone is currently living in a bag of rice until i feel like i can risk turning it back on. online says to wait 36 hours...so i have a bit to go. wish us luck.


yes...it's right around the corner! not only is the 4th my sister's birthday, but i have a feeling this year is going to be a good one now that kaye is getting bigger. love it. 

here are a few pins i have on my radar...

here we go!

link-up time is where it's at!


  1. Yay for your new niece... She's beautiful! Sorry about your phone!

  2. Congrats on the new addition to the family. Partial to an all girls family too! A little poolside paradise for the little ones, not so much for the phone I'd say. Yes, the new button is very creative for summer. Unique, love it! Good call.

  3. Congrats on your beautiful niece! Girls are great :) So in my Friday post today I said I was thinking about that outdoor pool/oasis but wasn't sure on that one or another. Do you love it?

  4. Your niece is precious! Yay for baby girls!:) My husband just did the whole swimming with his phone thing....And it resulted in new phones for us both. But, since yours is already new, keeping my fingers crossed that the rice works wonders!!!

  5. Congratulations to your sister and your family! She is adorable. You did such a great job with her pictures! Hoping everything works out with your phone. Winks and Eyerolls

  6. Aw. Congrats on your new niece!

    That 4th of July cake looks amazing.

    RIP iPhone :-(

  7. Congrats to your sister on her sweet little lady! So exciting. :) And all those 4th of July ideas are so cute! Have a great weekend!

  8. Aw sweet little girl! Congrats! Thanks for the 4th of July Inspiration, I can't believe it is so close. Have a great weekend!

  9. love that you're a girl fam! and resse is too cute!

  10. congrats to your sister and on your new niece!

    oh no!!! Glad your LO is ok though!!!

  11. Bummer about your phone! So fun that you and all your sisters have daughters! I anticipate some super adorable cousin photos in the future! Have a great weekend :)

  12. Such cute pictures of your sweet new niece :)

  13. That sucks so much about your phone! I would be so upset...but of course, saving the baby does come first ;-) Hopefully the rice does the trick. You'll be surprised how resilient those phones can be. That oasis does look fun though! I'll have to look into one of those for Farrah!

  14. Congrats on the new niece, so precious!! And I LOVE the new button, I couldn't wait to use it in my post! Have a great weekend girl!

  15. I hope your phone will still work!
    Your niece looks adorable!

  16. CONGRATS Aunty - that is so exciting that there are all girls x

  17. I just love newborns! In spite of the middle-of-the-night feedings, it was my favorite time with my babies. Being the aunt, you get all the sweet cuddles and can still get a good night's sleep. It's a win-win. Fingers crossed for iPhone recovery! Emily www.waltzmetoheaven.com

  18. If you get your phone out and it randomly doesn't have sound and says it will only play through headphones, hit me up. I fixed my swimming phone with Google and a toothpick.

  19. I'm totally dying of laughter picturing the phone incident (only because little one is totally okay)... and hoping that the rice thing worked out!!! Congrats to your sister - love the sweet pictures!! I love that you're a girl family too... because I want to be a girl family. :-P
