I wanna be a cowgirl (actually The Pioneer Woman)

I secretly want to be “The Pioneer Woman” living on her ranch making chicken fried steak for her cowboy.  I love that she gets to wear that hat everyday and she makes mason jars look attractive.  So in honor of channeling Ree, here are my efforts to be a wanna be cowgirl that I am.

The kids playing on a homemade rope swing.

1, 2, 3………jump

My son & his best girl jumping off the Rocky Acres farm stand sign, a locally owned family farm stand with a country feel.

Picked our own blueberries and made fresh pies & jellies.

We made our own pins and shrugs and dresses!  Momma Fix is where I do that.

I used mason jars to store my mom’s banana bread, for up to one year! Which is sold at Rocky Acres Stand!

We enjoyed & danced to Bluegrass (Rose’s Pawn Shop) music one warm summer evening.  Listen to one of their songs, Deep Red Clay!  Rocks!

We baked, rode on hay, arm wrestled and walked our small town parade!


I know I am not even close to Ree with her pioneer empire, cowboys & girls, cookbooks and all, but a small piece of me knows that what we’ve done in these photos helps me fulfill that country side of me.  I do have many other cowgirl things to try this year…I never know what I am going to try next!! I can’t wait!  Stay tuned!
