hey hey party people. and by party people i mean it's not even 8:30 pm and i want to be in bed.

a glorious king-sized bed that i'll have all to myself. i kicked my farmer out. he's gone-zo.

and by gone-zo i mean he ditched out on me so he could go play with his friends in colorado - bachelor party style. skiing - drinking - skiing - drinking - drinking...oh. and probably sleeping in. #hateinmyheart

no no. in all actuality he's had a hell of a week and he totally deserves this getaway. i hope he has the very very very best time celebrating one of his final friends to get married.

so, while he's snoozing away in the morning...i hope all y'all are linking up!

ps. be on the lookout this next week for a new spring-themed button. it's time.

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

M Y  F I V E - wish list

1 | new link-up
did you see? i got a wild hair and decided it was time to start another link-up. they are just so fun and easy and a great way to bring all us bloggers together or for non bloggers to find new fun reads. yay!
my thought was...since i'm an obsessive list maker - how about a 10 on tuesday? all you have to do is make a list of 10. 10 anythings. no explanations needed - or if you want to explain them, you totally can. i can do it right now half asleep.
10 reasons i'm scared of donald trump
  • his hair
  • his spray tan
  • his voice
  • his cockiness 
  • his ridiculousness
  • his general dislike for the human race
  • i could go on...i'll stop.
so yes. link up! tuesday. be there or be square!

2 | new car
not my car...but maybe this one? (source)

the farmer and i have been considering a new car as of late. i currently roll around in an audi q7...but i've really beat the hell out of it out here on the farm. i didn't help that i backed over some unnoticed farm equipment several months ago and it bent my bumper all out of whack. it also didn't help when my farmer slid it into a snow bank two months ago and it bent the bumper even more. we have yet to get that fixed. oh...and then there's that super awesome crack across the entire windshield. i'm basically driving around the trashiest audi q7 ever.

so...i need a new car. since we have to drive so far to get anywhere we're trying to find the perfect car that has both size and incredible gas mileage. i used to rock an audi a4 wagon. that thing was so fast and so cute and had so much room in the back...i kinda want that back. but maybe we should go the hybrid route? i don't know. what do you all drive? 

3 | snow
a few weeks ago my in-laws packed up their motorhome and headed down to arizona. must be nice to be retired farmers! soon as they left, the farmer and i lost our ski babysitters. this is not good. we need them back! don and // or kristi - if you're reading this, come home. and if you do come home...bring some snow! then you know the drill - you have fun with our two best gals, we'll go skiing. yay? glad we all agree.

4 | a nanny
is this crazy? i think i could really thrive with a nanny. granted...i would be basically the worst nanny-boss ever, but she would be handsomely rewarded for her hard work. 

actually, now that i think of it, i just want a live-in housekeeper. she would just have to do things exactly how i would do them, except better. so easy, right? hand polish the floors. hand pumas the toilets. dust daily. make all the beds daily. clean up all the meals. grocery shop. oh...and babysit some of the time. 

5 | my blog
i wish my blog would blow up. like...just all of a sudden it became a must read on everyone's list and big brands started pounding down my proverbial blog doors. brands wanted to send me free things or resorts wanted me to go on vacations...all i'd have to do is take pictures and write about it. whhhhhhyyyyyyyyy isn't this happening for me? i need to figure out how to create the frenzy. the buzz. or maybe i'll just wish it and it'll come true. i mean...i've written it down now, so it's bound to happen. riiiight? right.

6 | i need this 6th spot - not a wish
last thing! so...i had two gals decide they couldn't do the instagram loop giveaway, so now i'm on the hunt for TWO MORE BLOGS OR SHOPS who would like to be apart of the loop and see a boost in their numbers! the buy in is $50 and it all goes towards the cash giveaway of $500. this loop is limited to 10 people so it's not going to be one of those crazy loops where you have to follow 75 people and like all their pictures. so...e-mail me here if you're interested and i'll send you the details! i need to know ASAP and there are only two spots open!

okay...linkup time!

  1. I can relate on so many of those!!! Especially #5! Every time I write a post, I think, this is it...I am going to break the internet with this one...and only 200 people read it. Ha! One day, maybe! Keep up you're hard work, too!! Have a great weekend!

  2. I'm with you on the blog blow up thing. I'm just trying to keep my spot on the internet clean and welcoming. I'm slowing but surely get more collab offers, but I don't want to take everyone I get and it's hard to decide which ones would be the right fit.

  3. Love your five! Hubby and I are looking at Subarus for me, too and your Donald Trump made me giggle. Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

  4. Oh I'd love for my blog to blow up too! Getting paid to go on vacation and take photos sounds amazing!

  5. Good luck on those wishes - Have a lovely weekend!


  6. That Subaru is REALLY cute! I could totally see you buzzing around the farm in that!:) Jealous of your farmers trip. I need a vacay bad.

  7. Love your link up idea for tuesdays! And your comments about Donald Trump...YES! A housekeeper would be amazing, Sign me up. Ha ha! The Subaru would be so nice. We have friends with one and they love it.

  8. Hi! I just found your blog and it is adorable. A friend of mine has that Subaru and just loves it. I went to a blog conference a couple of weeks ago and people were talking about how their blog blew up over night. Pretty intimidating. Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. I feel like you may be my blogging soul I'm just now finding your blog is beyond me but man i'm glad i did! I totally feel you on most all of these things! 1) my inlaws are amazing and I desperately need them to babysit my kids 2) i keep saying I want 24 hours in a dark hotel with a king size bed and no baby monitor in sight 3) i definitely need a nanny/full time housekeeper. because...who doesn't?

  10. I'm still stuck on the whole Donald Trump's hair up there. I literally spent a good chunk of my time this week Googling "Donald Trump hairline" his hairline actually in the middle of his forehead?! Gross.

  11. So excited to link up on Tuesday! I drive a Hyundai Accent, which is amazing on gas and the perfect size for just me, probably not so great for a family of four, especially with car seats!

  12. Hi there...I hear you about Donald...glad I live in Canada :) I love the new link up. Can't wait to participate. I hear about the blog. I only have 32 followers....and I only have 48K viewers (though I did delete a few posts, so I guess that would bring it down a bit...more posts, equals more views). I love your blog. I grew up on a sheep ranch, so I love seeing/reading your blog posts about farm life.

  13. I'm praying for my blog to become some sort of overnight success at some point, too. Sooner rather than later, please! I, for one, think that I'm hilarious and extremely entertaining, so WHY HASN'T IT HAPPENED YET?! ;o)

    Have a great weekend!

  14. Yaaaaas! I feel you on SO MANY of these points! I mean Trump? What kind of a twilight zone world are we living in where this sh*t is actually happening?! Also, I've been dying for a Subaru Crosstrek ever since they started making them. I was car shopping that year, but of course you had to buy one brand spankin' new and me being little miss responsibility I just couldn't pull the trigger on that much debt. Bought a gently used Impreza and I love that little guy, drives like a dream. Still wish I had a small SUV, maybe I'll trade in soon but we'll see. In any case, I have to tell you I just love your blog and I hope you get all of the success you want! It's a real pleasure to read your posts and I hope you know that your genuineness (is that a real word?? Using it anyway!) really shines through. :)

  15. Yeah- how exactly does one make their blog go viral? Like, wake up one morning and it's basically non functioning because everyone reading it has crashed it. I'd love to know(other than writing something horrendous that gets everyone all riled up)

    And yeah- where's my free blog vacation? I'm down.

  16. I think we all wish our blog was a viral hit. I've been blogging for almost seven years. It wasn't until just the last two that I've seen numbers spike and companies reach out to me. I liked Donald Trump when I watched him on The Apprentice but this whole presidency race he's in is a joke.

  17. I love lists too but I think you are exceptionally talented with making lists. I falter around five or six and am not sure I could pull ten out. Do you ever get annoyed that some people link up and don't actually have a list of five? I drive a Toyota Venza definitely not as fancy as the one pictured above. I miss my little zippy car life that was easy to parallel park but you know seats. I hear you with wishing for family babysitting so that you and your farmer could go on a getaway.

  18. I am SO excited about your linkup...I love linkups, I really do. I have found some great people by way of linkups. So, thank you! And I too am afraid of Donald Trump for those exact same reasons. Ha, ha!

  19. I love lists too and can't wait to start linking up with both of these!! I've been blogging for 6 years and still trying to figure out how to make the whole blowing up think happen! ha

  20. Looking forward to tomorrow's 10 on Tuesday! FUN!

  21. We almost bought one of those Subarus!! We ended up with the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring. It's amazing! You should definitely check it out.

  22. Here i gather so much information which i really need to explore some info about Friday wishes. Good to be here and wanna say thanks a lot for providing us with info.
