Kansas Women Bloggers


I was so excited that I was able to attend my 1st Kansas Women Bloggers event earlier in the week. The event was held downtown in the big city at the The Hungry Heart restaurant. Such an amazing space!
It was awesome to be able to meet some of the ladies that I have talked to on my computer in person. What a great group of ladies! Our fearless leaders Erin and Amanda (who couldn't come at the last minute because of a sick little one) did a great job at putting all of the details together to make it such a great evening!

                             Oh and the food!!!!! It was SO de-lish!!



I have to admit I was a little nervous heading off to the big city by myself so I had my good friend Amy jump in with me. Since she is such an amazing photographer and has her own blog and business I knew she would also benefit from being part of the group.
It was a great evening and I had a blast! Thank you so much Erin and Amanda for not only starting up Kansas Women Bloggers but for setting up such a great night. Looking forward to our next get together.

On The Pot

Another one of our activities that we did on our little day trip was getting our craft on. There was a place called "On the Pot" it was a place where you could pick a ceramic piece then paint and design it the way you want.

                                                     It was fun to see the kiddo's creativity.




 It was such a fun experience and for about 2 hours the kiddos were so quiet while they let their creative
juices flow. These are their masterpieces, of course they will look so much better when they are fired but I thought they did a great job. We finished up the day with some shopping and supper. It was a great time and we were so thankful to have a day without any chores to just be together. Such a great day filled with lots of great memories!

A Little Cozy Burger

Since we are dairy farmers we aren't able to take a big vacation very often. For Spring break however we made it a point to take a day trip. Thank you everyone who took care of the ladies so we could enjoy a family day! We went to a little city about an hour and 20 minutes away. One of my good friends grew up in the area so she gave us some inside scoop about what is good to eat. 
It was Cozy Inn Hamburgers for the win!! If you have a chance to go to Salina you need to eat here. So good!
 It is a very tiny building that specializes little slider burgers. It is so small we filled every little bar stool and there were people streaming in the whole time we were eating. The milkman asked the owner how many burgers he made on average per day and the owner told him about 1300!
          If you ever have a chance to try Little Cozy Burger I would highly recommend it!!
                                                     It was a great time and so de-lish!!

A Very Short Visit

Last Saturday we were so blessed to have my sister Alicia and her family come for a very short visit. It was perfect weather outside so it was fun watching the kiddos run in and out while we visited.
                      Their littlest one loved all of the attention and our kiddos LOVED giving it.

                                        Uncle Phil played lots of basketball with the kids,
                                      and Tiana gave the kids bike rides all over the farm.
 Alicia enjoyed hunting through my vintage stuff and picked up a few items including a door that they strapped to the top of their car. I told them it looked a little redneck! Ha!
 The couple of hours went by all to quickly. I started missing her as soon as they drove out of the driveway. Counting down the days until we see them again. Thank you for stopping by we love you all so much!
