Urban Dictionary
The woman who loves you unconditionally from birth, the one who puts her kids before herself and the one who you can always count on above everyone else.

Just telling her your problems makes you feel better because mom's always know how to make it all go away.

Even if you fight, know that she's just looking out for your best interests.

I watch the video below today and it got me thinking about my wonderful mother, Pam, she is truly a blessing to my life.  Yes there are things that drive me crazy about her but if I sat down and wrote it all out there are by far more things that I love about her than drive me crazy. 

But after watching this video and knowing that I would state the negative also, I know my mother does. But what she doesn't know it that I think she is a strong person, stronger than I am, she is dependable all the time to watch my kids, she is loving, great listener, she might be opinionated but I love that even though I don't always agree, she is loyal to us girls, she always stands up for us. I love my mom and wouldn't want anyone else to call my mom!

You might need tissues for this!

Farmer's Wife

I joke at times and say "What was I thinking when I married a Farmer!"
But in all actuality I wouldn't want it any other way!

My hubs is a hard worker and knows the farming way!
I do not believe that he will ever stop farming.

I will forever deal with the late nights in the field
Working all weekend
Calving Season
Mudding boots, Mudding clothes
Spending my Saturdays, helping work cattle
Smashing my fingers in the gates

I am very cranky at times, when I get home from work,
I start supper, laundry, help with homework, fold laundry, clean up supper,
read bed time stories, do more laundry, get things ready for the next day....
All while he sits in the recliner, on the laptop, watching his shows.
I know the majority of the time, he is on the laptop researching something for the farm, 
looking for machinery, etc.
But there are times, when he decides he will cook supper (and I will say it is always good food)
He takes our boys to the farm with him.
He makes them help some too. 

It is frustrating, but I know he works outside all day, never stops or slows down.
He doesn't get Saturday or Sunday completely off. 
He still has to check the cattle and feed them. 

I know when we are old and gray and sitting on our front porch, we will still be in the country and looking at our cattle in the pasture!
And I know I will never regret marrying a farmer!

Photo Dump Friday

It's me again...

I have been so super busy with work, starting up my new business venture with Beachbody (super excited about this!) and life....

I have got to start making time for myself in this crazy life of mine... Time for my workouts, time for my blog and time to breathe.  Lately we have been on fast forward and I am ready to slow it down to just play for a while. But what am I thinking the Holidays are approaching quickly and that is never a good sign for slowing down!

I am going to be starting an accountability group on November 4th and will have meal plans for the first 5 days and for T25.  I love this workout video but am terrible and keeping to it. So ladies anyone interested hit me up... Leave a comment or email me at  We can get you set up with a challenge pack from Beachbody.  I am love with the Shakeology from Beach Body also! Yummy! You do not have to be doing T25 but just some kind of exercise workout for 30 days.  There are tons of challenge packs on Beachbody or at the store. Check it out at I will start a facebook page also!

So on a different note, here are some pics for my Photo Dump!!
