Why I Need You

Want to know one of my guilty pleasures? Cream cheese frosting, from a can.

Some people are chocolate people, I do cream cheese frosting from a can.

Scoop it up on a spoon, sit down and lick it off.

I am telling you this, because I'm eating it right now and it's what I'm thinking about.

I also want to tell you this, so you know a little more about me, because I'm going to be needing you to hold my hand, and boost me up and walk me through this crazy world while I try to build my house.

I need you to give advice, and listen and scream at me, "Don't use a sponge to cover the bathroom in red paint, you will have to use two gallons of paint to cover it later!" (Thanks Mom for letting me use the sponge to spatter my bathroom walls when I was a teenager, I do regret it now.)

There will be mistakes along the way, designs that I will love, that will fade into outdated trends. I know these things. Those things are easy changes. Things that I just have to roll with.

I feel like, I am much more ready for that phase than where I am now.

Now, I am choosing the location, and drawing up plans. In yesterday's post I wrote about two possible sites for the new house.

The response was great!

I received a bunch of comments on Facebook, and my phone was getting quite a bit of action too. I have to say the responses leaned heavily towards building on a site with a view of the river.

I had a couple people tell me they had tried to comment on the blog and it wasn't working, so I hope it didn't deter anyone.

The hubs and I still have a lot to consider. In the end, we know the final decision will be ours, but it is so great to get feedback from all of you. You have points of views, and experiences we haven't even considered.

I just want you to know your responses are truly appreciated, loved and acknowledged.

There, have I praised you enough to keep you coming back?

Seriously, I am going to need you.

Don't leave me hanging out here standing in an empty shell of a house, crying, "Why won't anyone tell me the difference between eggshell and glossy paint finish?"

So please, I beg of you, don't make the hubs suffer through that! You can be the lucky one to go through it with me!

A thousand thanks to you all and I hope to be hearing from ALL of you soon!

Have a lovely day!

A Crate and a Challenge

One of my favorite blogs is having a Pintrest Challenge. They do it a couple times a year and its just a fun time to challenge everyone to complete a project they've pinned on Pintrest. I've been wanting to get in on the action, but never found the time. Oh yeah and a little thing called, I don't do Pintrest. It's not because I'm not interested or I don't think I'll like it. I'm terrified of it! I already spend too much time perusing my favorite house app and a bunch of blogs I follow, and Facebook. If I added something as captivating as Pintrest, my house and kids may just go completely uncared for. So in the spirit of playing along with the Pintrest challenge I thought I'd share our headboard that I made a couple years back, loooong before I started blogging. It is by far one of the projects I am most proud of! Almost three years ago, the hubs and I got a new bed, a giant sized, California King! It came with a frame, but no headboa

The Farmer

I trust that, by now, you have all seen the commercial heard round the world. You know, the one that stopped all action and silenced a nation when the soft rumble of that voice drifted into living rooms on a Super Bowl Sunday. Yes that commercial . Paul Harvey's voice, unmistakable in its sincerity and beauty, spoke of a people whom work from sun up till sun down with no recognition. He spoke of a people whom care for their baby animals and pour their blood, sweat and tears into helping them grow. He spoke of a people, so foreign to many in the world today. He spoke of a people whom many have forgotten. He spoke of a people; my people. The farmer. I am a fourth generation farmer married to a fourth generation farmer. Together we are raising the fifth generation. We don't do it because its easy, it's not. The hours my husband spends working rival that of any doctor or lawyer I have ever met. We don't do it because it's profitable, some years it&#

Happiness

I am a New Years girl. I love goals and check lists and I love the feeling of a fresh start, but resolutions have never been my thing. A few year ago I began picking a word for the year and I found that it works really well for me.  Setting a word for the year has helped me to focus on a quality that I want to grow in myself. Last years word was ‘ intentional ’. It was a full year and in a lot of ways a really hard year. Being intentional with my words, thoughts and actions helped me to really lean into the relationships in my life. The past year felt somber though. It was good and I grew more than I could have imagined, but it also felt serious and deep. I need some relief. This year after praying over it and considering what I would like more of in the coming year, I knew that my word for 2019 had to be 'happiness'. I want more laughter, more spontaneity, more fun in 2019 and none of those things come naturally to me. I thought about words like joy and contentment b
