Ready to roll........

We may be under a winter storm watch {Yes...in April} but I for one am SO ready for spring. I want to smell the warm, earthy smell of freshly tilled soil, I want to feel the warm sun on my face, I want to see my kids outside enjoying the fresh air and I want to see our tractors rolling gently through our fields. :)

{This tractor is still in our shop....

full of three boys itchin' to get out in the field!}

What do YOU want to do this spring? I would love to hear your thoughts or just say hi!!! :) Good grief, we are under a winter storm watch......you could at least try to cheer me up with your comments!!! ;)

It's beginning to look a lot like SPRING!!

The sun is shining and it looks like spring may actually come........I was beginning to wonder!
The muck boots are out!!!

In my years of blogging I don't think I have actually mentioned when my birthday is.......so I will let you know that TODAY is my birthday. No exclamation.........it's not THAT exciting anymore. I will say that I am THANKFUL to be where I am at in my life. I am totally happy and content with my hubby, my children, family, friends and our farm. I am so blessed and I thank God everyday for these wonderful blessings. :) I am thankful too for all my blogger friends and followers. :)


Has spring arrived at your place? I would love to know. Leave me a message and say hi too!

Followers & Muffins

Hello dear readers :)

First off.....I want to say welcome to my new followers and thanks for following my blog. It has been so fun getting to know many of you. Last week I mentioned that in honor of my 400 followers I was going to have a giveaway. {I gained four new followers since Friday!} Yay!! Stay posted as it is in the works right now.

I make a double batch of muffins every Sunday or Monday. One of our family favorites being these banana chocolate chip muffins. Soooooo yummy!!


It seems that I always have over ripe bananas on hand....so it is logical that I make these muffins.



When I cook I normally do not follow recipes...but when I bake I do. {most of the time} I have a made these gems so often that I know the recipe by heart. :)


Do you bake something for your family so often that you don't need to follow the recipe? What is it??


Thanks for stopping by............and for your comments too. :) Remember to be watching for my give away!!! :)
