Homemade Alfredo Sauce

Somehow I managed to wake up super early today, but I don't feel like doing anything much so I am typing from bed today. I decided that while I'm just relaxing in bed might as well read something, so I traveled on over to my favorite blog, Aspiring Homemaker. Her photos are what keeps me so interested. Anyway while I was reading I found a recipe for homemade Alfredo Sauce. It's simple and looks easy. I'm not sure how much it makes but whenever I try it I will let you know. Also, if you try it let me know how it is in the comments!

Bridal Fever: Things to know before saying "I do"

Bridal Fever

With all this wedding stuff surrounding me I drink my Dr. Pepper out of a wine glass. Great way to begin, right? I thought so too.. The bridal fever has hit me and my friends hard. You have no clue how hard it is for me to try to not let this run my life. Don't get me wrong, I am completely and utterly excited, happy and in love. But I don't want every moment of my life to revolve around it. I actually had this deal with myself one day this past week that I wouldn't think about it or talk about the wedding at all one day. I had done SO GOOD! Then The Farmer mentioned it that night and I fell into it. I began rattling off my plans and wishes. So, I just gave in and decided to talk about it whenever people talked about it, may drive them crazy but I'm supposed to be happy. I'm supposed to be talking about this! This is one of my milestones in life! One of my bridesmaids, Jordan, has been sending me several links a day on Pinterest which go back to some very interesting sites. Like this one.. BEWARE: If sex is a dirty thought (No pun intended) you may want to skip to the next post. 


I feel like I'm having to get back into my "Lady of the Farm" routine. I have been so busy, my grandma passed away a couple weeks ago, I had began writing a post about it but I just couldn't even finish it, it doesn't even feel real.
 I was also put on full time at work, everyone keeps saying "That's great! More money!" Yes, but when do I have time to spend it? I had to hire someone to clean the house this past week.. I've been so exhausted after work. I get enough sleep, I'm just so mentally drained from my job. It's so much to take in and do.
Anyway, the busy weeks don't stop there. This Tuesday I start real estate again. I will work full time then go to class at nights. I may have to hire a personal assistant! (TOTALLY JUST KIDDING... I have bills and a wedding to pay for..)
So while I search for inspiration on my next post, be patient with me. Thanks :) XOXO

In Loving Memory of Grandma, You will be missed!

How to grow your Faith

Last night The Farmer and I were on the way home from dinner when somehow we got on the subject of God. He knew something was bothering me even though I didn't even know how to put it into words. I finally just blurted out, "How do I get closer to God?" I think I may have caught him off guard because he sat there kind of quiet thinking of a good answer to come back at me with. Then he said one simple word, "Pray." I raised a brow, "I do pray, still feel like I'm talking to myself."  We began talking about it some more and he just told me to keep praying until something happens. So today, I got my answer to my question.

Starting the New Year off with a bang!

On December 31st The Farmer and I were outside on the carport. I sat there with him "waiting to see if there would be any fireworks" even though it was raining. I was in a tank top and it was so cold out, he went to his truck and got out a camouflage shirt I had bought him for Christmas. He threw it to me and said, "Here put this on, it's too cold out here for you to be in a tank top. So I pulled on the shirt. (11:50) 

So, we are sitting at the bistro table set and talking about how cold it is and he turns on our song , "Till My Last Day" by Justin Moore. (11:57)

I get up and sit on his Yeti so I can be closer to him to have our "Midnight Kiss", we are watching my phone for the time and blasting our song while counting down. 3..2..1... *CUE MIDNIGHT KISS* 

We kissed very quickly and I sat there going, "That was quick." 
Then he tells me, "Okay, hop up off the cooler and I'll get you a drink." So I stand up and he opens the cooler and gets out something..
