Kick Up Your Heels!

Kick Up Your Heels!

Dodo and Sweet Sarah got hitched last August! But before that, they had some engagement photos taken…country style. The photographer was none other than our Whitter Baby. She did an amazing job capturing this perfect pair! I was amazed by the shot above…that Dodo and Sarah could have kicked up their heels in such unison […]

White Bridal Bouquet

White Bridal Bouquet

My new daughter-in-law, Terri Jo, planned a beautiful wedding which we all enjoyed just over a month ago. Our daughter, Baylee, is working as a floral designer for a local greenhouse and put together the bridal bouquet for Terri.  Baylee is also a Graphic Designer and has a second job at a local print shop.

Formal A’TIRE

Formal A’TIRE

Did we misunderstand when told the dress code for the wedding party was formal attire? We are from the country, after all…formal wear isn’t something very familiar to us. Tires on the other hand…we had that pegged. Tractor tires, pickup tires, car tires, swather tires…4 wheeler tires, Ranger tires, combine tires, toolbar tires. We grow […]

Unique Gift Wrap

Unique Gift Wrap

Originally posted here on Real Country Living ~ October, 2009 This unique gift wrap idea came to me a few years ago. I don’t usually keep a lot of wrapping paper on hand and since we live way out in the country, it’s not something I can run out and get on a moment’s notice. […]

Dancin’ Fools!

Dancin’ Fools!

…emphasis on the, “FOOLS“….and I use the term, “DANCING“, rather loosely in our case. There’s nothing sweeter than dancing at your child’s wedding reception…unless you are doing so to the fabulous music being played by another one of your kids and his band….all at the same time. If you don’t already know, our 2nd son […]

Building a Wedding Cake-Part 1

Building a Wedding Cake-Part 1

I baked the layers for our oldest son’s wedding cake a few days ago. He’s getting married on Saturday…it’s Thursday today. Time to start the assembly process!! There won’t be any recipes in this series (I’ll put them in the cooking section eventually), instead focusing on the building  and decorating of this wedding cake. I […]

Napkin Wrapped Wedding Gift

Napkin Wrapped Wedding Gift

Small wedding gift, wrapped in a set of retro napkins…topped with twigs and flowers Our oldest son is getting married a week from Saturday! A wedding shower was held last week for his bride, Terri. I found some little owl salt and pepper shakers for her gift…she loves owls…and loves “retro” stuff even more. Using […]

We Don’t Bend That Way!

We Don’t Bend That Way!

I just found this picture….and thought it was funny….again. This is at Baylee’s wedding and our photographer (we love you, Tara!) wanted all of the boys to cross their legs (in the manly style) and we girls were supposed to cross ours (in the lady style). First of all, there was mass confusion on what […]
