Weekends at the Ranch

Ohh weekends. Always toying with my emotions...

One day you're counting down til the suit and heels come off and the next thing you know you're clocking in and turning yet another page in your planner.

Such a love/hate relationship with these things that start with "week" and end with, well "end".

Anywho...since Friday, Saturday and Sunday have temporarily broken up with me for the next 4 days, I might as well relive the past 3 days of my life via iPhone photos. Right? Right.

One. Oakley and I mastered the backseat driver role on the way to our ranch this past Friday afternoon. And by "mastered" I clearly mean I was crammed in this little 1 foot by 1 foot sliver of Beau's backseat in his truck while she took up the other 90% of it. #bigdoginalittletruck
Two. Upon arriving to said ranch, I somehow managed to sedate my dog with enough bacon treats to get her to pose atop our ranch rock without falling into a bazillion cacti. Mission: accomplished.
Three. My awesome hunting getup. Workout clothes, Beau's XL camo backpack and little to no makeup. Such a fashion statement, I am.
Four. Refer back to #1.
Five. I'm convinced there is absolutely nothing more breathtaking than a South Texas sunset. Try me.
Six. Ranch-style sunflower seeds from a butter bowl whilst hunting from a deer blind on a Friday night. Something that I've done since I was a child and something that will never get old.
Seven. Oakie Bear sniffing out some old skulls on the fenceline. Have I ever mentioned how much I adore her curiosity?!
Eight & nine. A sunset photoshoot we had on Sunday evening with one of my sweet friends, Chelsea. She did incredible and I cannot wait to share all of them with y'all! More to come...I promise. (Unless you really...really...wanna spoil the surprise, I updated my "About" page after the shoot so here's a mini sneak peek!) ;)

How was your weekend? Surely it was spent eating sunflower seeds, crammed into the backseat of a truck with your 80 lb dog or running through open fields your guy. No?


  1. What a fun weekend!! Loving the new pictures in your About Me. So gorgeous!

  2. Such a blast! I just loves those pictures, and the one of your sweet Oakley on the rock - precious! Seriously, frame that sucker! Good luck with the next five days until your next weekend! ;)

We are headed to Michael's parents next week and it's my favorite trip. They live in the panhandle and I just follow Michael and his dad around while they hunt. Hope you have a great, quick week lady.
