Hello Friday, Hello long weekend!
With the Mr. off work today and a holiday on Monday we are super excited to have a 4 day weekend together. Recently Emily asked if Russ gets to take the summer off too. She gave me a heartbroken look when I told her he didn’t. Wouldn’t that be the best 😀 ?! I love that my girls love having him around too. Everything is just more fun together.
Let’s take a look at this weeks Friday picks!
If you follow me on Pinterest you may notice that I’ve recently gone a little farmhouse crazy. It’s no secret that the look I am hoping to achieve at the new house is going to be rustic farmhouse (I feel like there is fancy farmhouse and more country, rustic farmhouse). With the location and the structure/architectural style, it just fits. It also doesn’t hurt that the world is farmhouse crazy right now too. However, picking a defined style can be a bit intimidating. You don’t want to do anything too trendy that is permanent and/or expensive to replace.
After a year of pinning all my farmhouse ideas to one board, I decided to start breaking them up to make putting things together easier. In the coming weeks I plan to talk about our building plans more in-depth and give you more ideas about what we have in mind. But until then you can dream along with me and check out these boards for some farmhouse inspiration of your own.
Don’t stop moving.
Another week of stepping is over and I definitely slacked off compared to the previous weeks.
Week three total 74,859
Home is where the heart is.
Last week I told y’all that our house is under contract. I know some of you have been wondering what next steps are for us, so I thought I would fill you in.
As of now the plan is to rent our home… yup. The new owners don’t need possession immediately so offered to affordably rent it to us for a while. We plan to live here through summer and will move out right before construction on the new home begins (sometime in September). At that point we plan to put our stuff into storage and move in with Russ’ parents.
The next few months are definitely going to be full of adventure.
Joplin Area Rocks
The girls and I have discovered a favorite new activity and it all revolves around rocks 😆 . A local Facebook group, called Joplin Area Rocks, makes a hide and seek game out of painted rocks. The idea is simple. look for the rocks (mostly at parks), take photos to post in the group, and re-hide them.
I love how much fun the girls are having doing this and how it is keeping them moving. On a day that I need to get some steps in (AKA wear my girls out) looking for rocks is the perfect activity. We have also been riding our bikes to the park nearby which means even more exercise!
Rocks we found!

Do you have anything like this where you live?
This week on the blog I shared…
Have a great weekend friends!
We’ll see you back here on Tuesday for Tuesday Talk!
