When MyFarmer and I starting thinking about building a house everyone we talked to would tell us their house budget horror stories. Going, 10, 20, 30, 40 thousand PLUS dollars over their original building budgets. We knew that we were in the "now or never" time to build our house, but we also knew that… Continue reading How to build your dream home and actually stay in budget.
It's here! It's here! The #LittleHouseOnTheRanch kitchen edition! SA-WOON. I love my kitchen. If kitchen islands were world champion team ropers, this one would be Patrick Smith. *insert heart eyes emoji here* (Google him, you'll see.) Now to get back on topic. See those shelves? I put my cookbooks there. And on the other end… Continue reading Little House on the Ranch: Kitchen Edition
Hello friends! I'm writing to you today from our winter wonderland here in Southern Kentucky. We had a snowmagedden of about 3 inches! (Trust me, here in SOKY 3" of snow is crippling.)

So… Continue reading Little House on the Ranch Update: Week 21 The Unicorn Has Landed!
The lights are on but nobody's home! We have power! That seems like a major milestone. Pulling down the driveway after being gone on vacation and seeing lights shining in our #littlehouseontheranch was really exciting. MyFarmer then proceeded to walk through the entire house flipping switches to everything... even though there really aren't many bulbs… Continue reading Little House on the Ranch Update: Week 20
Hello again friends! I hope this #littlehouseontheranch update finds you well. We are doing great around here, thanks for asking. I feel extra adulty today because I successfully re-enrolled MyFarmer and myself in our health insurance, so if you notice this post is extra mature, you know why. LOL. It's not gonna be. Well, maybe… Continue reading Little House on the Ranch Update : Week 16
