My Thoughts

holy crap.

i haven’t written in this blog in over two years…

that’s craziness!

anyone still out there?!

lol

i’m not sure why i decided to post today…just crossed my mind so i sat down to type.

now to think of something interesting to type about….hmmmm…

i have been keeping up a little in the social media world, my twitter…no, instagram…yes! facebook…kinda. i do follow a TON of fabulous women out there doing their thing to keep western fashion alive and well out there…something that was SERIOUSLY lacking back in the day when i started my blog. and i am very serious when i say i am one of the old babes that definitely can’t or don’t want to try to keep up with these new ladies…they are young, single or newly married (most with no kids = which means FREE TIME AND MONEY!!) lol, and they are doing a fabulous job with carrying the torch. I feel no urge to “compete” or even try to join. i am liking my little farm life with the occasional touch of media in it. although pinterest has me addicted…damn pinterest…oh…i’m active there too! that’s one more place my little farmer’s trophy wife self is out there.

who do i follow you ask!? the first two that come to mind are:

the buckaroo girl…gawd is she a cutie. her accents, bouncy blonde personality and her OUTFITS!!! are a killer combo. i am addicted to her instagram feed!

the bleacher babe…another blonde babe that has carved a niche for herself. love it. she has formed a group called the bleacher babe squad filled with women all over the states that are lovely and have fabulous western lifestyles and they all share over instagram!

when i think of more i will add to this post…

what have you been doing? married? kids? new life? career? i mean, it has been two years. something amazing must have been happening!?!

 

My Thoughts

i’m now a forever fan…

hey dolls!

happy new year! I hope your year is off to a fabulous start! mine is…kids are back in school, we are able to haul grain (!!), no one is sick (!!!) and I am feeling good! you?!

I just wanted to pop in and write a post because I have been soooo inspired tonight. ever have that happen? you see/watch/hear/read something and it RINGS in your soul?! it doesn’t happen often in this crazy, digital and busy world of ours, so when it does, you have to PAY ATTENTION and soak it in!

I saw it on pinterest. (doesn’t every story/idea start that way now?!) I found Buckaroo Barbie, heard of her? Well, actually, it’s a THEM. a gorgeous pair of sisters who are cowboy-girls (I’m totally going to start using that term by the way…) who not only are kickass ranchers, but they are NORMAL, gorgeous and talented in other areas of life. One’s a singer and the other a writer.

“Buckaroo Barbies are an intriguing mixture of tough and soft, strength and grace, cowboy and fashionista. They are known to wear boots with their pearls, but they also know that the most beautiful attribute any woman can have is the beauty and class of her heart and soul. Buckaroo Barbies love to be outside, their animals and wide open spaces. A Buckaroo Barbie also loves being a girl. She enjoys fashion and beauty and the finer things in life…be they good food, fine wine or cars and trucks. Being a Buckaroo Barbie is about becoming all that you can be, taking charge of your life and chasing down your dreams and making them come true.”
amen sisters.
this got my attention, but what killed me, what held my attention and will for DAYS, is this video. it was a Christmas present from one sister to another, and WOW. it captured so much and gah…I’m just…I can’t explain it. Maybe I’m overtired or hormonal or something, but this just GOT me.
watch, check them out and let me know what you think!!
My Thoughts

winter, winter, winter

ok, technically it’s still fall.
but it’s -32C here.
it’s winter.

and I have cabin fever. or something.

bad.

I so terribly want to knock a wall down or paint or retile or aggghhh…something…

but we all know how terrible I am at DIY, so I sit. pinteresting away and gah. the angst. the heart ache. the sadness.

what do I do?!

 
**update** ok, just rearranged some stuff in my living room. kinda feel better…
