oh hey, friday | it's my birthday

Well, technically yesterday was my birthday.
BUT I like to celebrate the whole week. Or month really.

I am up in the beautiful town of McCall with my family and loving life.
And if you'd like to see what's going on, you should just head to my instagram.

So, for obvious reasons, I'm not going to be doing an oh hey, friday post.

But you totally should.

Go get your link up on!

Happy weekend, friends.


RODEO | year 5

We went to the rodeo again this year... for the 5th year in a row.
I just looked back at the past posts I have written about it... and you can too.
Just in case you were curious... Bennett will be wearing that same pink shirt next year.
And the year after.
And then I will have to make it into three bandanas or something, so they can continue to wear it yearly.

This year it felt like approximately 130 degrees.
I didn't even bother dressing the boys much like cowboys.
Except I did throw a hat on Bennett for a hot second at home for a picture before we left.
We headed up early and ate dinner put on by our farm lending institution.
Bennett was a big fan of the water. And cups. Naturally.
Mostly because Ryan gave him a taste of lemonade, aka baby crack?
He thought it was the best thing EVER, and looked at me like I had been holding out on him.
I have. And will continue to do so. Sorry buddy.

We left the dinner a little early and headed next door to the big rodeo.
Brody was really hoping that there would be a mechanical bull like there was two years ago.
He was pretty sad they didn't have one last year.
And sure enough, they were back this year, and better than ever.

Both big boys took a wild ride.
And it was probably the cutest thing I've ever seen.
I just hope that this is a sufficient amount of thrill for them and they won't want to ride real bulls. Ever.
Luckily, Bennett didn't seem to interested in seeking any thrill.

We brought along Ryan's parents, and the boys just had the best time ever.
Brody had a kid sit next to him for the last half an hour or so, and my social butterfly couldn't have been happier.

We were all particularly in awe of those bull riders nearly getting trampled though.
Every. Single. Time.
I don't know the answer, but I do know that we will be back there again next year.


oh hey, friday | 5 FAVORITE small shops for my boys' clothes

This week has been a whirlwind!
We went to the fair, the pool, and the rodeo (more on that next week).
Hung a new chandelier and it's 750 crystals.
And have tended to a grumpy little baby... who probably really isn't that grumpy, but I'll take my easy going kid back any minute now.

I'm not going to be blogging about any of the above today though.
Instead, I am going to share my love of/addiction to small shops with you.

1 | periwinkle jazz
You guys... THIS shop is dangerous for my wallet.
They have the cutest bloomies, shorties and leggings/harem pants.
Not to mention a few darling shirts.
AND even bowties and beanies.
I am in love with all of the fabric, and the new line coming September 1st does NOT disappoint.
Go and check out the shop HERE.

2 | bitty b design
Speaking of adorable shorts and pants... THIS shop is your place.
This week a brand new line of fabrics dropped, and they are all perfect.
Just see for yourself...
And if you have little girls - there is a floral fabric that is absolutely beautiful.

Ahh. Talk about soft!! 
These clothes are so comfy.
Not to mention adorable!
And they have a whole lot of options for you too... that you just have to go and check out.
They have some super cute peplum tops for little girls, that I would be all over if I had girls... or if they came in my size. Ha.

Lastly but certainly not least.
I absolutely adore this shop!!
All of their fabrics are exclusive to them because they create them, and I think that is totally amazing. 
And they are all cute to boot.
They do tops, bottoms and very soon will be offering blankets!!!
The most cozy blanket ever.
Also, it's big and quite versatile. 
You will love anything you get there, I promise.

Ok. That wraps it up... for now.
What are some small shops you love!?

Happy weekend friends!


oh hey, friday | new doo

I had high hopes of busting out a great blog post on this fine Friday.
But... that's just not happening, because it's 11pm on Thursday night and I would like a little bit of rest.

I have been spending a crazy amount of time weeding in my yard/garden/orchard, and let me tell you, that is tiring.
The thing is though, by the time I'm finished, I will probably have to start all over again.

The farm books aren't waiting around for me either.
Turns out, bills keep coming, and people actually want paid.

Also, my children seem to always be hungry.
Or need something.

I did take one day this week and did none of the above.
Instead I went to the dentist...
But I also got my hair cut and colored. Whoop whoop!
I cut off a solid 12 inches of pure stringy, nasty, split ends.
And now I feel so fresh and sass-a-frassy.
It's rejuvenating.

I hope you all have a terrific weekend.
Go and chop off your hair!

But first...link up.

bennett | seven months

As stated on his actual 7 month birthday, this has undoubtedly been the fastest seven months of my life.
And, I think, the happiest too.
Because, when you have this chunk of happiness constantly loving on you and giggling at anything and everything... how could it not be?

Bennett has started getting some mild stranger danger.
He is still quick to smile, but too much oohing and aahing over his carseat by strangers will occasionally make him cry.
Especially when he is tired.
Sleeping has become a little more regular than it was a month ago.
No more sleeping in until noon.
He is getting to be on his brothers schedule and going to bed around 7, and waking up around 7. 
I can get onboard with that.
This little babe sure loves to laugh.
Whether it is by tickle, a funny look you give him, dancing or hopping around... he's just so sweet.
My little friend still doesn't have any teeth, and I'm juuuuust fine with that. 
I swear he has been teething for months, so maybe one day soon something will pop out. 
likes |
I think it is safe to say that he really loves his food. Milk and solids both. I have had to limit him on his solids, because he will eat so much it makes him sick. 

His mommy. Gosh this kid loves me a lot. I loved being adored by him. But I could do without the hair pulling.

His daddy. Bennett is getting to the stage that he is obsessed with his daddy. Because, who isn't in this house? He's just so much more fun than mommy. 

His brothers. He gets SO excited when he sees them right after a nap. They make him laugh a lot! And he definitely enjoys all of the toys that they bring to him. 

dislikes |
Bennett really loves his brothers, but he does not love being smothered by them! Generally it's Beckam holding his hand on Bennett's head that will get him. 

He has also starting not loving his carseat. Usually it's because he has been in it too much... kid wants to be free.

milestones | 
The sitting has become quite strong. He no longer needs to be surrounded by pillows or blankets. 
He usually puts himself in the laying position though so he can roll anywhere that he pleases... that is his only way of solo transportation, and he is very good at it.

Bennett has started babbling, and it is the cutest thing ever... especially since his favorite babble is "mama".:)

Monthly pictures have gotten a bit more difficult... 98% of them were him squealing with delight while squeezing his teddy. But I was able to get a couple comparison shots. Ha. 
Fingers crossed for slower moving months.

Love this little baby SO very much.
