friday favorites: bursting at the seams

Happy Friday, Sweet Friends!

I'm linking up with Erika to share a few favorites from the week. Sometimes I feel like I have nothing to share, and other times I wonder how I'm going to get it all in one post. This week just so happens to be one in which I am bursting at the seams to share all the good things from the past several days.

First - I picked a ton of beans Thursday morning. We also dug up a few potatoes and I fixed them both for dinner. It was our first meal from this year's garden, and it was delicious. I cannot wait for the corn to be ready to pick.

reunion recap + a glimpse of the homestead

Hey hey, Sweet Friends! 

Even though I don’t usually stop in on Monday’s to share our weekend highlights, I do believe this past one is worth making an exception. 

A little background first. 

Our family holds its annual reunion every year on the 4th of July weekend. It has always been kind of a big event. Lots of people, great food, games, fireworks and just loads of fun for everyone. 

At the end of the 2018 reunion, my Farmer raised his hand when someone asked for a volunteer to host the following year’s festivities. I wasn’t near him at the time and didn’t immediately register what he’d done, but once I did, I was like “oh boy, what did he just get us into?”

So in the Spring of 2019, my Farmer built an equipment shed onto our existing barn, as well as what we later named, the Conference Room. 

The shed is beautifully built and houses various pieces of hay equipment 363 days a year. However, one weekend of the year, all the equipment is pulled out and tables and chairs are set up in their place.

friday favorites: welcome to july

Welcome to July, Friends!

Is anyone else struggling to accept the fact that we are more than half way through 2020? I mean, it occurred to me that I've worked from home more this year than I've been in the office. That seems so surreal.

Funny story - I took my Middle Little Farmer for his annual check up yesterday, and it had been so long since he'd been to town that he honestly couldn't remember where the doctor's office was or recognize the route we take to get there. Crazy.

Anyways, Friday has arrived and I'm linking up with Erika to share a few favorites from the week.

Found these rubber boots on Amazon, and my Littlest Farmer loves them. I'm hoping the eyes can help him recognize when he has them on the wrong feet.
