Slow Cooker Carnitas 🌮

I definitely had some help prepping this dish! Our toddler wanted to help by stirring, pouring and supervising 😂 Something about mommy having all the fun up on the counters with food makes her want to “help.” It doesn’t always mean I get things done quickly but I appreciate her wanting to be a partContinue reading “Slow Cooker Carnitas 🌮”

Chicks & Ducklings Update!

Our chicks and ducklings are growing like crazy! This past week we moved all the chicks over to our chicken coop. They had all of their feathers come in, so we moved them over gradually. We first moved our biggest chicks, the white leghorns. Then a couple days later we moved over our Red SexContinue reading “Chicks & Ducklings Update!”

More Planting on the Farm 🌺

We planted two azalea plants in the flower bed area in front of our back porch a few weeks ago and decided we needed to get more. Azaleas are native to our area and I love their blooms.

Southern Fried Chicken 🍗

I love fried chicken 🐓 Especially when you take a bite and it has this amazing crunch, and a little bit of oil drips down your chin. Mmm, mmm, mmm!

Updating Our Kitchen! Yay!

Our next project: ripping out our old laminate kitchen countertops and putting in some snazzy new granite countertops! All of my pictures I post of food shows our stovetop or our faded red/burgundy laminate counters. We’ve talked about updating them, and we finally pulled the trigger and did it. We still need to do theContinue reading “Updating Our Kitchen! Yay!”

Wallpaper Behind Our Bookcase 📚

Fun weekend side project: putting wallpaper on the wall behind our built-in bookcase in our library. Ended up taking TWO weekends, but if I had ordered enough wallpaper I could have done it in one shot. Have you wallpapered before? I saw peel and stick wallpaper featured on a Property Brothers episode (I believe) andContinue reading “Wallpaper Behind Our Bookcase 📚”
