I’ve been super busy over here at farm girl headquarters. Christmas is just around the corner and stacks of gifts have taken over my living room. I have a few other major projects going that have taken up huge chunks of my time. Like my day job, that is constantly getting in the way of my sleeping in and full days of online shopping. I
I am working through my Christmas planner and already have most of my shopping done! In case you haven’t looked at a calendar lately, there are only FIVE Saturdays until Christmas, but there’s no need to panic. Go download my planner RIGHT NOW and play catch up. There’s still time for you…but not much unless you want to give truck stop finds to your mom.
Now that Halloween is over we can focus our full attention on Christmas. That’s right, I said it, Christmas. I know there are some of you who are firm believers in not starting Christmas until December, but I’m a realist. I know that with my work schedule and ambitious to-do list, there’s no way that I can get it all done if I wait. I
The past year has been such an adventure, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. Ok, maybe not every minute because it is hard work to make this site run, but I’ve sure enjoyed most of it.

The theme for this set of challenges is making time for your friends.There are so many things that pull our attention, one of those being social media. It feels like you’re spending time with your friends as you stalk through the photos they’ve posted recently (or a year ago). You know what they did yesterday and who they had dinner with last week, but knowing
I’m travelling to Iowa this weekend for a family wedding, so naturally I’m spending five days this week preparing for a two day event. When you only see people a couple times a year you have to look your best. I got my eyebrows done Tuesday, today is hair and tomorrow is nails. I’m also working that full time job, blogging every day and squeezing
The first rule of offering to help a friend is that you don’t ask “can I do something for you?” People are polite, they’ll say no thanks, even if they have ten million things that they’d love to hand off. Unless it’s your best friend who isn’t afraid to ask for your help, you have to guide the conversation. Put yourself in their shoes for a
I wanted to save this challenge for nicer weather, and the time has arrived. It’s beautiful out there! Get outside and enjoy fall while you can. Take a walk on one of the trails, like Memorial in Houston or Rose Rudman in east Texas. Trail Link is a site that will show you all the trails around you by plugging in a city or zip.
If you tried to stop by the site this weekend, you probably noticed it was down for maintenance, and if you’re observant, you may have noticed that it looks completely different today. It took me three days, but I managed to get through a complete overhaul without having a complete meltdown. I thought about taking today off to recover, but the shut-down caused me to
