Ranch recap...

Returning from a week of vacation was tough.  I know I will get no sympathy here. 

I guess I can get relaxed really fast! 

Being back and catching up was actually really exhausting and I think my body wasn't sure what to do with stress, laundry, and a long to-do list again.  I struggled and had to slow things down a little bit this past weekend because of some pain in my legs.  Thankfully things have leveled out...the pain has subsided and the laundry pile is slowly dwindling.

Here's a little recap from the ranch that I promised to share...

My Belties entertained me a lot during the day.

 I watched the swim team practice each afternoon.

I loved on Gracie, my little miracle calf.

We watched the wild axis.

Each morning, during my quiet time, I would watch the girls grazing in the field.

I enjoyed the morning sunrise over the barns.

The girls LOVED their time spent fishing with their daddy.

I caught a pretty nice bass. 
Most evenings were spent fishing with a beer in hand. 
Pretty wonderful!

We did a lot of jeep cruising! 

...and cruising in Blueberry, our 1954 Chevy pickup.

And the reason for it all...time together!  Time to celebrate 3 incredible years together!

I'd give anything to go back and do it all again for another week...and another week...and another week.  Like I said, I can get used to relaxing.  I think it's one of my natural talents.

Double the fun...twin love!

Last night I had a friend announce that she is having a boy AND a girl!  One of each! 

Can you imagine the fun!?! 

Can you imagine decorating for both?  Gives me a little anxiety just thinking about it.

In honor of her and her husband's double blessing, I had to find a few dual gender twin nurseries to share with you. 

And my all time favorite...ever.

These are all so lovely my uterus actually hurts. 

Congrats Margaret & Kevin! 
Can't wait to shop for your upcoming bundles of joy.

Have a fab weekend, loves!

We're home!

Yep, back to reality.  A week at the ranch did wonders for my body, mind and soul.  Coming home was necessary and it felt great to be in my own bed Sunday night, but it's all very bitter sweet.

I have lots and lots to blog about from the ranch, but I need to focus on the necessities first...laundry, groceries, catching up on blogs, checking email, Pinterest, watching the episodes of The Voice we recorded.  Priorities.

Oh, and let's be honest...the order of the list above is really reversed if you want to know the truth.  Don't judge. 

I did return to find a few packages waiting for me!

The Tiny Prints stationary I had ordered a couple of weeks ago arrived. Love them.

These little gems were waiting from Sweet Auburn Studio on Etsy...
 Nice legal pad pic, right?  
They really are prettier in person.  This is just a cell phone pic.

I harvested these lovely berries from my garden on Sunday...

Lots and lots more to report.  I just had to check in and let you know that we are alive and slowly will return to the daily grind soon.
