I'm not great with dates. As a matter of fact, I struggle remembering if my husband's birthday is September 29 or 30. It's the 30th... But it doesn't stop me from debating between the those two days constantly. So it works well for me that my dad and my father-in-law's birthdays fall within a day … Continue reading Trick Candles and The Crashed Cake
As I sat there in my home office, on a beautiful spring day, the breeze blowing, the birds singing, the temperature inviting. It was the perfect combo for a day of windows open as fresh air circulated through our home. But, no. Instead I accepted that I was, in fact, living on a post apocalyptic … Continue reading BURN ALL THE THINGS
My Someone and I hosted our annual party this past weekend. I say annual party with no particular theme involved. You see, after our wedding, My Someone quickly realized his wife personality was "go big or go home" when it came to party planning and hosting. My creative driven mind and obsessive attention to detail … Continue reading Dog Costumes and Frito Chili Pies
I have a lot of "I told you so moments" happen in my life, I can be a little bit of a quiet know-it-all and as it goes with any form of know-it-all, when the moments of being wrong come hither, they come hither strong. A couple of months ago, My Someone and I were … Continue reading For the Love of Habaneros
*Confession* Referring to my husband as a "farmer" is incredibly awkward to me. He raises livestock, not crops, so in my mind and probably most everyone's west of the Mississippi he qualifies as a rancher. On the other hand, my husband finds it incredibly awkward when I refer to him and his parents as ranchers … Continue reading Till the Cows Come Home to Double Dan Ranch
If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably understand the radio-blogging-silence on my end has a whole lot to do with my husband and I's current housing situation. One which I plan on throughly blogging about, just as soon as I'm finished painting. And in case you didn't already know, repainting an entire home … Continue reading I Went to Lexington and Returned With a Sombrero
If you're a personal Facebook friend on mine, you might have seen me say something about a blog post I'd be doing today. Well, in typical Danielle fashion, I changed my mind, and decided to write this instead. So I attended my first Catholic wedding... I've always heard rumors, then when I started dating My … Continue reading Janet, Miley and Rollin’ on the River
Deposits are being made, plans are coming together, notice has been given at work, boxes are being packed and the countdown app on my phone is showing numbers like "4" on it. In honor of my favorite, not ladylike phrase to use, "Shit is getting real." And it's getting real, fast. I've begun throwing around … Continue reading Before I’m gone.
Pioneer Woman started it, I swear. I saw a picture of Hereford cows and was sucked in immediately to whatever else was in the article. But... it wasn't about my favorite bovine breed, it was about mush stuff. Her article "15 ways Marlboro Man and I are different" was exactly what the title leads it … Continue reading Fifteen Ways
I wasn't going to write about My Someone this week. Two posts in a row is just too much. Branch out Danielle, don't be that girl. However, the two blog post story ideas for this week were turkey hunting and chickens calling, both of which involved My Someone. So I wasn't going to write one … Continue reading Turkey hunting, for the attention deficit.
