We’re Moving!

I’m excited to announce that Chris and I are moving!

After 3 years in our first homestead I’m excited and nervous to be moving. We have been searching for a house closer to our jobs for a while and nothing seemed to be working out. Then in the matter of days we found a home and have been accepted! I cannot wait to show you how adorable our new homestead is, expect picture overload. I’m thinking before and after pictures? YES!? It’s crazy how God works, when nothing seemed available and we were at the end of our rope God opened the perfect door. I think there’s a life lesson in there somewhere…

Any who when God moves it happens fast. We are saying goodbye to our homestead the end of the month.. that’s two weeks people TWO WEEKS! Pray for me…. does pinning a bunch of packing ideas count as packing? Also I’m going to need a name for this new home! It’s in our small little town and needs a name just as fitting as “the homestead.” 

I am looking forward to sharing this new exciting adventure with all of you! Stay tuned on Snapchat and Instagram for weekly updates handle: thecowboyandi

Las Vegas Trip











I’m back! What a crazy busy, and fun work trip I had in Vegas. For those of you who are just now joining in I’ve been on a work trip for the past 12 days as part of the media team for the Miss Rodeo America Pageant. As the number one tech support and back up photographer I was non stop busy. But that didn’t stop us from having some fun. On our way to Vegas we stopped by the breath taking Grand Canyon and the beautiful Hoover Dam.

If you followed me on Snapchat the entire time you know how much fun we snuck into our work trip. From dancing throughout the MGM Grand, to watching artists paint something amazing, to staying up till 1am making sure all the photos we took we posted online. I wanted to share some of the highlights on the blog with you! Seeing the Grand Canyon at sunset was by far my favorite part of the trip. Sitting on the edge watching the sun sink into the canyon is something I will always remember. I can’t wait to go back and take Chris and our future kiddos. The Hoover Dam was the pun of many jokes throughout our whole trip, obviously, and we were all in tears when we left. One of our last nights in Las Vegas we walked the streets and watched the Fountains of Bellagio dance. I also may or may not have eaten chicken strips and drank Starbucks everyday… but what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas 😉

Happy Thanksgiving!

 Happy Thanksgiving my friends! I hope your day is spent surrounded by people you love, good food, and even better desserts! I am currently on the road headed to Viva Las Vegas, just a tad bit different from my normal Thanksgiving traditions. I’m so excited to be apart of the media team for Miss. Rodeo America, I’ve been working on my wardrobe since January and I think it’s going to rock. (Did you see that sequin dress on Snapchat! 🙌🏼) But somehow I still feel like I didn’t pack everything…

As you know I’m a huge fan of shopping local and I picked up this adorable vest just in time for the holiday season and my Vegas trip. I’ve paired it here with my favorite leather leggings and plaid shirt, cute and comfy. The entire day I felt like an adorable teddy bear. Plus the front pockets are deep, perfect for your phone and lipstick.

What are some of your favorite Thanksgiving traditions? No matter what your Thanksgiving looks like this year remember to make memories that will last a lifetime! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Fall Vest + Life Catch Up





Wow the end of 2016 feels like it is just going to flying by! So much has happened this year it’s crazy to sit back and think about it. The most insane part is the year isn’t even over yet. One thing I’ve noticed a lot about 2016 is I’m becoming a lot more sentimental… thinking back on events and situations where God was clearly moving. For those of you who don’t know I’ve been in the middle of a transitional season from one job to my new current job.

Change. A word you either hate or love. I like to think I’m always ready for change, but more realistically it depends on what kind of change it is. Fall is my favorite season, and it’s all about change. The leaves change colors and then drift to the ground as they fall off preparing for the coming winter. This is always a sweet reminder that change is a good thing in our life. I’ve been trying very hard the last few months to balance out everything in my life. To find that sweet spot of being productive but also finding time to do things you love!

Anyways other than me blabbering on about life and what not I wanted to brag on this vest! I’ve been on the hunt for a good vest for fall and winter for a whole year now. And finally I found one! If navy isn’t your color that’s ok, they also offer it in pink, cream, and olive green. The material of this vest is perfect it’s not bulky or heavy, it’s great for every day wear or to keep you warm on those chilly fall nights. I apologize in advance if you see this piece over and over again…

Starbucks Tip: for a more nutty flavor try a Chia Latte with Almond Milk 🙂

Puppies on The Homestead




Some exciting things are happening here on the homestead! Four exciting things to be exact… and they are puppies! Daisy had her babies this month and they are all sooooooooo cute!!. I woke up one morning to let Daisy out of her kennel like normal and there they were all curled up in little balls. You simply cannot have a bad day when you get to come home and hold adorable puppies. It’s just not possible. Each puppy is so soft, chubby, and perfect. They are over a two weeks old now and it’s amazing how fast they are growing! All the puppies have opened their eyes and have started to walk in spurts. I’ve never dealt with puppies this young before so it’s been a complete adventure. Just this week the cowboy and I came home from a date day and all four puppies had escaped the kiddie pool we keep them in. It was so funny to see them stumbling and crawling around the kitchen! Needless to say we had to rearrange their living space. Poor Daisy every time we come home from work she just looks at us with these sad eyes and her ears laid back on her head like “help me…thank goodness your home!”. I think these pups are running her out of energy. Which isn’t a bad thing for the cowboy and I. The puppies are now learning to play with each other and bark which is fun but also annoying at the same time. The part I’m most excited about though is finding these puppies their forever homes.

Do you have any helpful puppy advice? If you do leave them in a comment bellow! I would love any help I can get!

ps. I know these photos aren’t the best quality, it’s hard to snap a good shot when you’re squealing with excitement. For more blurry photos and videos of adorable puppies check out my snapchat @thecowboyandi
