Favorite Marine

Blaine Barby, far left.

This is an article about my friends platoon. Don't tell him,  but I think it's precious. He would rather hear any other adjective than precious. 
Dangerous, manly, courageous... those still work too, Blaine! 
His platoon blows up car bombs and such before they can detonate and hurt civilians. 
He also works one getting to know the people of the area. 

So cool. So proud of him! He is a good leader. Keep him in your prayers!
We love you Blaine!

rain and strawberries

we needed rain. it was dry. in early spring we needed rain. then it didn't stop raining for almost a month. oklahoma is crazy. and i love it.  i love when small town churches pray for rain for their fields. 

a gentle reminder to rely on GOD. everything good and perfect comes from HIM. 

if you would like to pick your own strawberries, come on out! what a fun date.... you could even picnic under our trees. i would share them with you. how romantic. bring a quilt and something to drink. watch the sunset. i could plan an awesome date! or, pick a pint of strawberries for a fun girls afternoon. just do it. summer could be over before you stop to savor it... and that would be sad. enjoy the small things with the ones you love. TGfarms can help you :D

*tgfarms website is not updated often... sorry for that, but i have nothing to do with it. if you want to do a little research you can, but i most likely am your source for up to date activities and produce/animals etc.  my family isn't too computer savvy. feel free to email me!

springtime fun & free range EGGS

the little lazy-blogger-prairie girl
can't really tell you why i haven't blogged since before finals... in fact i started writing this post with an apology. i quickly remembered my aversion to "forced" relationships, chores, obligations, etc. and hit delete. i am promising myself that this will be a fun, stress free place for me to document memories and thoughts... and that no one really reads this besides my MOH (maid of honor & bestie since 3rd grade, darcie challis).

there, that's out. here are some pics of springtime fun.

little human family in front of the little chicken house

these chickens lay eggs in multiple colors.... very cool. everyday they are let out to roam (free range) and they get lots of yummy nutrients and diverse cuisine to flavor their eggs and make them rich in color & nutrients.  i'm such a fan. it's cool to eat green eggs. brown ones too! 

please please shop local and support our farmers. if you are interested in some free range eggs we have a ton every day! AND you pick them up on our farm, using the honor system. can you believe it? believe it. everyone should buy their eggs less than 50 feet from where they're laid :D

shop local. just do it, or you'll make me really sad. and mad. i can go on. but i won't. maybe i will. no, i won't, because my sister is coming over and we are going to play. and i'm going to finish knitting my hat. i sound lonely? i'm talking to myself through my blog? at least it's not out loud. typing to yourself isn't as bad as talking to yourself is it? sorry. oh wait.... no apologies.

i feel this.

I am a house that is divided, in my heart and in my mind.
I have a broken disposition, I'm a liar who thirsts for the truth.
If I had two hands, doing the same thing...

Big announcement is coming soon, promise!

Happy Easter!

These bunnies are cute, but it's not about the bunnies.
Because He loves us, Jesus took our place and removed our sin. 
We remember and rejoice!

easter bunnies!

We found these beside our house, just in time for EASTER!  YAY! They are teeny!  Just look at how big the grass is compared to their little bodies! I love little bitty baby bunnies.

Thank you sweet puppy for hanging around my feet while I study (long hours). Thank you amazing Mr. Thurmond for doing dishes, cooking dinner, and CLEANING. I think you are the best friend in the whole world.  Thank you for living on the farm with me. I'm so happy I get to play with chickens with you. You're my favorite.

Grizzly Man

Just enjoying an inspiring film with Sully, Allie and Zac. Nick is gone this weekend... so many great quotes... I can't begin to list them... If you haven't seen it, and love the bizarre, watch it!  
*warning: some foul language. I only recommend this film to people who have graduated high school... ask your mom and dad :D

After the test!

Just finished up a brain midterm... Now 30 Rock in the hallway!!!

Our newest addition!

what? just because you thought our baby would be the color of watered down skim milk doesn't mean it has to be!  little *Z*  is the sweetest, prettiest, happiest baby. her mom really is doing a great job!  we get to  love this little joy baby every sunday at church!!! ahh! i really could not love another baby (that isn't mine) more!  i'm smitten.  so is nick, by the way.  after the service is over i say hi to sugar and "borrow" her baby.  then, i search everywhere for nick and usually end up on the stage letting him say hi while he is packing up (mobile church, for now!). this little one is a huge testament to the Lord. she is the cutest miracle i've ever seen.  cuter than i was as a baby... and probably you, too. no offense, of course.... and she's probably cuter than your babies as well. don't be mad.  and don't ask me in person if your little one *really* isn't/wasn't as cute.  i will have to say no, and this could pose an awkward conversation. just don't test me on this, ok?

*and she loves reading books.  she's only 4 months old now (this pic was taken a while back)... what a GREAT mom & grandma!

i look like i just woke up, b/c i probably had... don't judge me. i like sleep.

MORE oklahoma love!!

Just stumbled upon this very cool state poster, designed by Frank Chimero... Love it!

Thinking about ordering it...  I've been loving art that has to do with states for a little bit now... i have some ideas in my head for handmade stuff, too.... oooh! fun.  Here's a state that is now a part of both of our lives:

It is just TOO PERFECT for us!  This one would probably be the one I ordered if I got around to it! 

What a cute wedding gift for design-loving people!
