The weekend was filled with: Spring Show, Spring Show and more Spring Show.  Ha!  It was a great, but busy weekend.  Mornings that turn into evenings watching Bay do something she loves always warms my heart.

But, I’m really, really happy it’s all over!!

Highlights from the weekend…..

Spring Show kicked off Friday morning for these kids.  Farm Connection Day!


Bay had a special visitor

We snuck in a little kickin it time at the Truitt’s


The kids swam

We enjoyed well deserved beverages


Marilynn retired!!  So we obviously had some celebrating to do!  Check out the dessert Buckhorn brought out to congratulate her!


Visiting the GATE Art Walk.  Bay’s contribution….Slime!  lol.




Saturday morning ritual…..

Full cup (of coffee)

Full cart

Full heart


J.Crew’s promo codes were on point, so I grabbed a few things for Bay + I!



Ready to show Rodeo!


Besties // So proud of these girls.  Their hard work paid off!


Bay + Andee Pants looking all grown up


All the friends + supporters…..

Even Nikki + Matthew showed their support.  Thanks friends!!

My view



Catching special moments // and they talk shit to me for ALWAYS taking pictures.  Bay, (very unexpectedly) won 1st in her class.  That lightweight pig came through.  Click play and listen to me scream my head off!


Another moment that I love


Bay + Addy doing their thing


Good luck matching bracelets.  I shared these on my {gift guide: mother’s day}

Madewell Bead Mix Bracelet


Cookie Connection hookin it up with the cutest buyers gift


Squeezing in time to celebrate Kate’s 1st Communion.  Spencer’s got the moves!


Still snapping forever memories every second I get.  This one is a keeper ♥


Barn Dance ready!


While they danced, we celebrated Cinco de Mayo at SOL + getting the white, white again.  It’s one of those moments where you pull the jeans out with your fingers crossed the spray n’ wash did it’s magic…lol.


Dinner with a view.  A goat view!  Normal, right?

Auction time!  Rodeo (Bay’s pig) got stage fright and never walked on the auction stage.  Which also means Bay didn’t get to say her final good-bye.  A couple of tears + an ice cream later and she was good to go!

Once you walk off the auction stage, it’s DONE!  That’s it!  Pretty sad when you really think about it.  These kids spend hours upon hours with these animals from January – May and then the whole this is over within moments.

Luckily it seems to get a little bit easier each year.

So proud of this girl.  She placed 1st in her class and 6th for cross-bread.  Considering how rocky the final few weeks were, she absolutely killed it.  About 3 weeks ago her pig still hadn’t reached 200 lbs.  Which is the minimum to sell a pig.  At 226 lbs, which was one of the lightest pigs, we are beyond happy + proud of the hard work and commitment to her 4-H project.

She’s already talking about “next year!”

BIG thank you to all our family + friends + barn crew for all their support + help.  We truly appreciate it ♥


Finished off the night with a parking lot water balloon fight!


Somehow I found the energy to get up at 4:30am and make it to Kaia.


Enjoy your Monday!  Now let’s do this…..
