There are fields and fields of sunflowers out here. Paul and I went for a drive this morning. Every color, every size you can imagine! It makes me want to grow a bunch at home. They just make me smile. For as far as you can see, there were sunflowers. It was beautiful! ♥E

Texas Sized Fun!

We got to my in-laws yesterday. And already, we're having so much fun. Last night, I told Paul how lucky he was. I just can't imagine growing up out here. It must have been a blast!

Today, my MIL and I are baking a lot. Paul and my FIL had some work stuff to do. So we're just holding down the house for them. :) We've made all sorts of berry pies. They smell so good. And tonight, we're having some Texas BBQ. I seriously can't wait!

But it's nice to come out here. There's not a whole lot to do. But be close to your loved ones, and nature. I'm really enjoying myself! Do you think I can convince Paul to move out here? ♥E

Apron and DVD Giveaway

I'm in love with this little apron! Look at all the veggies. I wish I could find dish towels like these. They really are so sweet.

Anyway, you can win an apron or a DVD from Megan at Crochet Every Day. It's a super cute blog! I just wish I could crochet. But I do read it every day. Her projects are so adorable. And they are inspiring me to learn how to crochet. ♥E

It's Monday...

I just can't believe how tired I am. But we're back home. And today is Paul's day off. I'm not going to lie, we slept until noon! Yes, I said noon. I can't believe it. But we were so tired from our trip to Texas.

It's a little crazy that we came back home. I'm sure J would have let us stay. And just head from the job to my in-laws. But we really needed to come home and rest up! We're heading out to visit my in-laws this week. And I'm really excited!

Everything just seems so much more laid back. That's the thing about living in rural areas. Having a working farm. It's an amazing thing to go back to. And I can't wait to start cooking with my mother-in-law. She makes the yummiest things ever! Let's just say that my 80-20 week isn't going to work out on this trip. I'm not going to worry about calories or working out. I'll deal with that when we get home.

But my tummy is growling. I'm pretty sure I should get up and go make us some lunch. Oh, and start the day. Why do we have so much laundry. I really have to start my Monday... ♥E
