Has it been a year already???

It certainly doesn't seem like it's been a year since my last birthday, but the calendar is telling me it's here again!! Don't get me wrong, I love celebrating myself, but once you past 25 it's hard to get very excited about growing older!!

Even though the actual day isn't until tomorrow, I have been getting spoiled since May! Remember my parents gift http://thefarmerandthesouthernbelle.blogspot.com/2010/05/happy-birthday-to-me.html I have sooo enjoyed being able to edit pics on my laptop!!! But my good friend, Mr. UPS Man, brought me another gift from Momma and Daddy today!

Yep!! It's popcorn!!! Woohooo!!! And such an adorable tin!! I think this one is my favorite of all..and I have a ton of them :)

Mmmmmm yummo!

On Sunday The Farmer's parents had a little party for us since our B-days are just ten days apart! His birthday is July 12th, ten days later is my birthday on July 22nd, and ten days later is Our Anniversary August 1st! AND ten days later is the day we got engaged, August 11th! I guess we like 10 :) Anyway, back to the party! I got lost of fun stuff!

How cute is this apron...maybe there will be some action shots to come!

I wonder how they know I like everything personalized!?!?! haha!

Grandma Vermeer makes these amazing hangers, they are soo nice for sweaters! She gives them to the kids at Christmas and on our birthdays! Love the colors!! :)

Soo as a gift to ourselves for our birthdays we got this!!

Compared to our old, sad, little TV, this 40 inch thing is a beast!! Happy Birthday to us!!! Also for my birthday, I get to pick out a new pair of boots when we are in Cody, WY in August! I am pretty picky about my boots, so instead of ordering them online, I will get to try a bunch on and find the cutest pair!! I can't remember if I told yall this already, but we are going to Yellowstone and Cody, WY for our anniversary! I am soo excited!
We are actually going out to Helena, Montana (where I use to live) for my friend Heidi's wedding on August 28th, so after the wedding, to celebrate our anniversary (a little late) we are heading down to Yellowstone for a few days then Cody, WY for a few days! Last time I went to Yellowstone was in 2006 with my family, when they came to visit me in Montana, so it will be fun to go back!! Cody was my favorite!! So many fun shops, a rodeo every night, and an amazing Buffalo Bill Museum!! I can't wait!!!

While I'm discussing vacations, I just have to tell you about another one that I am really looking forward to!!! Another Daddy/Daughter trip! It will be a quick one over the second weekend in September, but it is something we have talked about doing for forever!! Well, you know how we love history, mostly Old West History...we like it all, but Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid (Wild Bunch) stuff is one of our faves...sooooo...we are going to the Hole in The Wall!!!

Ok, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about, but it is where numerous outlaws hid out and were never found! They were actually called the "Hole in Wall Gang" because they hid out in literally a hole in the wall/canyon. Through the years, the Hole In The Wall was home to gunmen such as Jesse James, the Logan brothers, and George 'Flat Nose' Currie. Toward the end of the century Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch joined the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang, making this one of the foremost outlaw headquarters along the outlaw trail.

There is now a ranch were the famous hideout lays, so we are going to stay there! We will be in a cabin the first night, then head out the next day for a trail ride up to the Hole In The Wall, have a Chuckwagon Dinner, and camp out there!! Now under normal circumstances, I would never do this, camping isn't on my list of favorite things to do, but how cool is it gonna be to actually camp out where they did, and ride where they rode!! I know, I'm a history nerd!!! But I love it!!! I'm actually kind of obsessed with the Sundance Kid (Harry Longbauch)!! But since this post is getting long, I'll just save that for another day!! hehe!!
This is the place we are staying!! Gorgeous!!!

On another note, I am re-decorating the living room!!! The wall in this pic (below) will hopefully be red after this weekend and then I will show you a few other fun things I have done to change it up a bit!! The accents have been maroon, forest green, and navy for the longest time, until one day I woke up and realized I didn't like those colors at all, and red, turquoise, and yellow are so much more my style!! Don't worry it is still gonna be western!! As always, stay tuned!! :)


  1. I love your living room as is. LOVE it.

    That will be the neatest trip with your dad.

    Happy Birthday!
