um...thank you for buying (pretty much) everything in my shop.
you ladies are UNBELIEVABLE.
i love you.
i'm sorry for you that there were only so many of each thing and it went so fast.
i'm sorry that it gets crazy.
but it's fun too isn't it? like black friday without the uncomfortable eye contact.
there are two matching quilty striped pillows left....and some prints.
i restocked the prints a bunch of times yesterday.
the two pillows are really cute....i was surprised they were left.
i think they are perfect for a boys room....blues, greens and browns.
so again....THANK YOU.
it was really fun to watch it all disappear!
now i will ship and ship and ship.
PLEASE go and double check that you paid and you completed your payment.
it's a bummer for me to have to track you down later.
now....here is my REAL post.
my friends kerry & dan have 5 kids of their own and they run a dairy farm.
i went to visit this farm in january and it was.....an eye opener.
i have seen pigs and horses but never a cow close up.
not like this.
and i was not prepared.
i thought we were going out there for dinner.
i had no idea we'd go into the barn to touch the cows and be all up in their space.
i was wearing cloth leopard shoes.
i think it's safe to say i may have been the dorkiest person they have had out at the farm yet.
i tried to walk into the barn a bit and see the baby cow but i was so squeemish that i chickened out.
i blame the shoes.
but it was fascinating.
i said "i will be back...with my camera.....and my cowgirl boots....this MUST be on the blog!"
so when my city friend chicago Jen brought her family to town i knew it was the perfect time!
while our men golfed in the ridiculous kansas wind.....we went to the farm with the kids.
kerry had warm cinnamon rolls in the kitchen, coffee for jen and i and fresh milk for the kids.
it was an all american scene.
my kids were loving every second!
scotty was loving on baby kyler.....melts my heart!
kyler is so darn cute!
i got to be at her birth...a home birth....it was so cool.
annie loves to watch kyler's every move.
i like to cuddle her when she is sleeping. :)
after our coffee we put on our boots and braved the barn.
poor jenny....we don't have the same size feet so she couldn't wear my extra boots.
i gave her some of our snow boots.
when we got out to the farm we realized they were both right feet!
she did just fine in her two right boots. HA!
it was very funny.
i wasn't nervous....but i was being.....cautious.
i am such a baby.
everyone peeked into the milk tank.
it was ALOT of milk.
no fear from the kids though....kisses for cows? well of course!
we got to bottle feed a one week old calf.
seriously....i could have picked her up and taken her home.
if only they stayed that size.
it was SO ADORABLE!
except for all the snot.....that was a little gross.
oh how i love this kid.
he is just enough to make me crazy but when he is having a good day it's a great day for all of us.
and THIS was a great day.
i was so happy he was with us.
(excuse me but when did my boys think it was acceptable to grow up and be as tall as me??)
aren't we a fabulous farm group?
we fit right in.
don't look out of place one bit.
dairy cows are HUGE.
i couldn't get over how big they were......GiNORMOUS.
our gracious hosts.
seriously.....dan & kerry you were so good to us.
you spoiled us.
thank you thank you thank you.
sorry i was spazzy to the kids about the rules before we went in the barn.
i just wanted them to be good.
i am sure it was the joke of the day for you. :)
i live to entertain.
and just when the kids thought it couldn't get any better......TRACTOR RIDES!!!
it just went up and down but it was better than an amusement park for sure.
i love when my kansas friends get to meet my jenny!!
(kerry.....doesn't jen have the best laugh ever?!)
kerry's 10 year old son built this tree house.
he is 100 times cooler than ty pennington in my opinion.
see how cool it is to live in kansas!?
the farm rocked.
i loved it.
jen loved it.
the kids loved it.
there is no one nicer in the world than my friend kerry.
she calls me Megs.
when i tell annie we are going to see her she says "which kerry?"
i answer "annie poo-pie kerry" because that is annie's nickname from Kerry.
and annie gets so excited!
kerry has a blog!
i want you all to mozy on over and give her some love right now!
those are farm words for "get going"
