Black Friday starts now!

First of all: Happy Thanksgiving!!
I truly hope you've had a warm and happy day filled with too much food, and plenty of love and warmth.

Second: We love shopping, we love giving, and we love a great deal.

So here's our Black Friday sale this year, and it starts right now:

Use code BF2014 to get 25% off everything at! 
That's huge! Think "buy 3, get 1 free!"
And if you're one of the first 25 shoppers, you'll receive a pair of these Shimmer earrings. (these are my current favorite. I wear them every single day!) You won't see them in your cart, just when you receive your package. 

Third: Saturday is "Small Business Saturday." I'd like to strongly encourage you to support small businesses on this day. Whether it's online, in your hometown, down on Main street, or wherever. You'll be supporting small business owners, and you'll probably get a more unique product than any big box store can offer.

Fourth: Stay tuned for our Cyber Monday deal!

36 Workout songs

Every morning I go for a wog. That's a walk/jog.
I usually go outdoors although now that we're getting into cold weather I'll be hitting the treadmill more often. (bleh.)

But I've been asked lots of times lately about my workout music. So here are some of the songs on my playlist.
Not all of them are clean. Don't judge me.
And because we live on dirt roads, I tend to have a lot of "dirt road" themes just because it makes me happy each day.
There's also a heavy theme of just "happy" songs... light hearted, fun, make me smile types of tunes.

Wedding season!

We have been incredibly busy lately with weddings at the Barn.
We've had at least one wedding each weekend, and many weekends there have been two weddings.
We're tired! But it's so much fun too!

Here are some shots from a recent wedding that I got to photograph.

Huge congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. K!
What a beautiful wedding. We are so blessed to be able to witness life changing events like this.

Kansas Barn Sale 2014

So... I'm not entirely sure how a month passed without me blogging. I think I'm pulled in too many directions lately.

But a few weeks ago, we had Kansas Barn Sale. That's the big mac-daddy Art & Antique show in Kansas!
And did people show up!! People started forming a line to get in an hour and a half before the gates opened.

It was junky vintagey Black Friday-like madness. So fun!!

Pickers, junkers, and collectors came from all over the country.
Thousands and thousands of people! Holy chickens.

"There's nothing beer and lipstick can't fix." Ha!

It was rusty crusty Fall happiness!
