It's A Farm Life

This past weekend I got to enjoy some quality time with the boyfriend. I enjoy these days since he has been so busy the past couple of months with harvest.

FC is part of his family farm which consists of his grandpa, dad, and uncle they have had the farm for over 50 years and grow rice, soybeans, cotton, and corn

Since I am absolutley clueless an expert on farming  pay close attention... you may learn something new :)

This thing here is called a "combine"... this is used in rice, soybean, and corn farming. Today we were harvesting soybeans. FC was on his way to pic me up in this pic :)

Side view, this thing is HUGE I wish I took a picture beside it so you could tell, and of course green is the ONLY way to go! I do know that much!

This big pointy thing is called a "header" It is used to strip the beans from their stalk and push them into the combine where they are seperated from the hulls. And that little ice chest is full of ice cold Bud Light... I'm so jealous he gets to drink on his job haha 

Then once the beans are seperated from the hulls they are sent to the back of the combine. This picture is from looking toward the back glass of the combine.


Once the Combine is full the Grain Cart driver pulls beside the combine and the beans are transferred into the cart. Once the Grain Cart is full it then empties it into the grain truck, once in the grain truck the beans are taken to the mill.

                                                       Me driving the Combine!!! I was a nervous wreck...but i still had time to smile :)

Farmer Chase doin his thing!

Thinking it over...

Of course something ALWAYS break down!!!

Finally after a LONG day on the farm we got to enjoy dinner with some great friends!


And of course we made the men do the dishes :) After all we worked hard on the farm all day! haha
                                                            Stay tuned for Cotton Harvest!!!

Getting Down to Business

For those of you who know me know I am NOT a runner! Lately due to all my clothes becoming way to tight and just feeling blah I decided I was going to try this new iPhone app out. I have always thought of running as a great stress reliever it gives you 30-40 minutes out of your day to focus on you and only you it gives you time to clear your mind. Plus my friends an boyfriend wont have to listen to me gripe about feeling fat all the time (hopefully)

I started Week 1 day 1 yesterday and I am still alive! It's not to bad honestly! For the first couple of weeks you have a 30 minute routine 5 minute warm-up, 60 seconds of jogging followed by 90 seconds of walking for 20 minutes and then you have the 5 minute cool down the program lasts for 9 weeks and gradually increases intensity. If you want to know more check the website out here Couch 2 5k.

Hopefully this will stick in my A.D.D. mind for a while! More on my success later :)

Any of my blogger friends want to share their success stories with me??

Time to break the Stalker Kit out.

OMG!!!! Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon are filming a movie called "Mud" on the Arkansas River in Pendleton, AR the end of the month for 8 WEEKS... which is 15 minutes from where my boyfriend lives. 2 of my friends Paige and Stephanie are already planning our headshot photo shoot and will be submiting our applications for movie extras this week (this is serious stuff). My goal... To lick Matthews entire body.. yes i am aware he does not wear deoderant... but it's Matthew does it really matter?!

In other news....

Lacey and I had a Yard Sale this Saturday... and who new so many people loved to buy other peoples crap?!? We had a steady flow of traffic.. starting the night before our sale even started!! I sold my whole college life and it was bittersweet, Lacey sold random stuff and at the end of the day what we had left Lacey loaded it up in ONE box to resale at her moms yard sale. All in all the Yard Sale was a complete WIN!!! I am ready to stard hoarding more crap so I can have another one... in about 10 years. It was some hard work! Oh and Lacey and I stayed up all night crafting... below is our finished products. I love me some craft nights :)

We ate dinenr took about 10 shots each I had to call my boyfriend at 2:30 am to come pick us up (he was NOT happy) phone calls the next morning that started with "what did we do last night and how did we get home" lol. We had a great time from what I remember.

The death of us.
She NEVER does this. This is how bad it was
Me and Paige!
Sunday morning well around 11 I woke up and I felt like it was going to be my last day of life.. I felt terrible. I talked with paige and steph we rehashed the night... well what we remeber.  I stayed in bed all day and watched lifetime and loaded down with BC powder. I'd say I had a pretty succesful weekend!
