oh hey, friday | maybe i'm going to be a reality tv star

It has been one crazy week!
Maybe the craziest part being an email/call from a casting producer about the possibility of being on a reality tv show.
This is the second time this has happened to me.
The first time I was like 45 weeks pregnant with Beckam and they asked if I'd submit a casting video.
No. Definitely not.
I didn't do it, and I have never seen a show about farmer's wives... they must've just been missing their key star. ME.
So, we will see where this second go around takes us.
Stay tuned.
You just might be seeing this mug on your tv...

For now, let's just hop right into oh hey, friday!

1 | minnesota
We finally got home Monday night Tuesday morning from Minnesota after a very late night of traveling.
Delayed flight, missed connection, change flight, etc.
Luckily our boys are excellent travelers, and the 10:45 pm flight didn't phase them.
Brody and Beckam shared three seats.
They curled up and passed out.
Bennett insisted that ONLY Ryan could hold him until he fell asleep.
I'm chopped liver anymore.
That's ok though because I got to put my energy towards eavesdropping on a drunk girl chat with her seat neighbor. Very entertaining.

Our trip was so so fun!
We went to visit one of my besties, who JUST had a baby girl.
We had nonstop fun from playing at an indoor playground, the mall of america, the zoo, ice fishing, shopping kid-free, and doing scavenger hunts with the little ones.
Here are some pics straight from my phone for you to enjoy...
I have the best friends.
And the very best husband.
And I am already ready to go back to MN.

2 | snowmen
Turns out that it is colder in Idaho than in Minnesota.
The boys were excited to build snowmen when we got back.
A friend had given me a snowman kit, and the boys really took advantage of the colors.
Nothing like a bloody snowman to look at everyday.
P.s. it's supposed to be a red sweater.

3 | broken down
Do you guys follow me on Instagram?
If you don't, you should, because sometimes I do stories about how my husbands truck breaks down on the busiest street in Idaho.
Like broke, broke.
Something with a fuel pump or lift???
All I know is something broke.
And a quick trip to the dermatologist turned into a very long day.

4 | valentines day
It's coming right up!
I am obsessed with these shirts that my boys just got, and wanted to share the love in case you still need something for you or your little one.
These are all from Plucky Mustard, and the mama hand paints every. single. shirt.
Go check her out, and use code FARMER for free shipping! :)
(Bennett clearly wasn't feeling this photo shoot.)

5 | here we go again
We are taking off this morning and headed on another adventure.
My husbands brother and his family are coming in from Hawaii and the whole family is getting to meet up.
I can't wait to see all 10 of the cousins play together.
We are also doing a huge family photo session.
Wish us luck with that one.

I hope you all have a suuuuper weekend.

oh hey, friday | 1st haircut + cute clothes + discount codes

It's been a tough week.
I'll tell you, doing the books for your farm when the commodities market is in the dumps isn't super fun.
Stress central right here.
But... I will, always love reconciling.
Especially when it can be done while shoving kettle corn in my mouth!

On a lighter note, I was able to dress my kids cute all week.
So, I've got that going for me.
Pardon my yell, but my baby looks like a freaking teenager now.

oh hey, friday | top 5 posts from 2016

Wellll... apparently I have been so out of this whole blogging world that I forgot it was even Friday.
I guess the new nightly routine of staying up late watching movies and eating popcorn with my farmer is really hindering any sort of normal routine.
And I am totally ok with that.

I have quite a bit of material coming atcha.
Maybe next week I will slow down on the popcorn consumption enough to tell you about our Christmas vacation.
Or how about Bennett's first birthday party!?

But, today, since it's 2017 now (what!?), I thought I would do a quick recap on my top 5 blog posts of 2016.

1 | bennett zane - a birth story
Not surprisingly my most read blog post from 2016 was Bennett's birth story.
If you haven't read it, you can find it HERE.
Because the amount of face chub on a newborn has never been greater. 

2 | family pictures
We did an indoor photoshoot of our family last winter... because... newborn. 
It wasn't my favorite, but when I look back at the pictures now, I am SO glad that we did it. 
You can check it out HERE.
This also reminded me that I never shared our recent family pictures - and I am totally obsessed with them. 
Looks like I have a full week of blogging ahead.

3 | parties!
If you've been reading for any amount of time you know I like to party.
Some favorite parties of the year were...
Beckam's circus themed 3rd birthday, found HERE:
Easter at the farm, found HERE:
 And Brody's 5th birthday, found HERE:

4 | transitioning to three kids
I guess I wrote about this.
But mostly I just love the pictures of my three boys.
How, oh how, can I get them to do this again?
You can find it HERE.

5 | yellowstone
We went on quite a few adventures this year, but our trip to Yellowstone was probably the most memorable.

You can find it HERE.

There you have it!
A fun year indeed.

Looking forward to another fun filled year documented here.

How is your year starting out!?
