We really had great weather. Not very windy so spray painting worked well. Seriously, these ladies were just so fun to be around. Some of them got crazy with their color choices and totally blew me away with their pumpkin variations. I just added another pumpkin session in case you couldn't make the first two. You can sign up right HERE OR if you have no interest in coming to a session or making a set and you want me to do it for you...I can do that too! You can order your own set of MADE pumpkins from me HERE.
HERE for her class. It totally changed my life. If you just want more info you can go HERE. If you sign up use the code WILKE25 and she will give you $25 off the class! Shaaaaaboooooommm!!!
And then there are my teeth. I got the call. I got the estimate for the damaged teeth. I almost puked. I have to get the estimate from my tooth I need pulled yet. I plan to wrap up that tooth and give it to the kids for Christmas. Merry Christmas children! I am giving you the gift of your mother having teeth so you won't be embarrassed to know me. I am pretty sure they already are a little embarrassed!
And then my poor finger. See that lovely bump? (this would be the U.G.L.Y part) On my middle finger?!?! I have had this bump come and go for the last few months. Over the weekend it got really painful. I had to pay a visit to the doctor yesterday. Is it a cyst? Is it a blood clot? I won't even tell you what I think it is...cause you will all really know how crazy I am then!
Etsy Store. There will be limited space for each session as these require quite a bit of prep for both my husband and myself! I am also booking private sessions of these so let me know if you would like to get a group of ladies here to craft on your own!
Ok and something totally random. I seriously just had the Kirby people stop at my house. They handed me a packet of tide pod things and started giving me the "pitch." They asked what room they could clean for me today. I told them we have all hard wood floors. (which is totally the truth). By this time his assistant lady had already run to the car to get the Kirby out of the van. So the guy asked the women if she knew how to use the hardwood floor attachment. She didn't know how to....so they asked for my sample pack of Tide pods back and left. I am still a bit baffled by the encounter. Why do they hand you something and then ask for it back? Do you really think I am going to buy your thousands of dollars Kirby because you gave me a packet of Tide pods that would last our family 2 days? I feel like if you don't know how to work the machine you are selling on all types of flooring then maybe you should learn that before going door to door! I know that is their job and I really did want to help them with their "demo" goal for the day...but I am not gonna let you in my house if you don't know how to use the machine you are selling! End rant. :)

Last night was interesting. Like, seriously. I'd love to tell you that Dan and I got super crazy and went totally wild and went to a concert and just danced all night long. But, that is not totally how our evening went.
Let me back track a little bit. In May we attended a Need to Breath concert in Madison. Now, let me explain this...that was probably the first concert we have ever been to like that. We are not concert going people. We like to stay home. I HATE loud music. I hate the feeling of the bass pumping in my chest. I am a very picky music person. Anyways, Need to Breath had 4 opening acts that night. I guess that is what happens when you are a popular band or something. 4 opening acts. It took them FOREVER to get on the stage. After the first 2 opening acts I was a little bit irritated. Seriously, we have kids at home to tend to and a dishwasher that was more than likely clean and needing to be emptied. Enter....Ben Rector. He was one of the 4 opening bands for Need to Breath and from the first song I knew I that he was gonna be a new favorite of mine. Every song he did, I loved. Just him and the piano. That is my kind of music. I know....so boring.
Anyways, we came home and I downloaded his music and now I know all his songs. Every lyric. Yup, that's how much time I have on my hands...or that is how much time I spend in the car driving kids places. So just before Dan's birthday a few weeks ago I accidentally landed on his website. I almost died. He had released a new album and I had NO idea. That is how on top of things I am musically! I was pumped. Somehow I figured out how to download his new album all by myself. (usually that is Dan's job....that is too much computer figuring out for me) Again, every single song I loved. Then, I saw he was going on tour. I secretly prayed he would only be playing in Florida so I could have an excuse to drive down there and surprise our friends that just moved there with tickets and we could all go on a double date. Well, he wasn't playing in Florida. So that wasn't an option. And then it happened. BEN RECTOR....PLAYING IN MILWAUKEE, WI. What what? I was SO excited! I sent Dan this text...Hey, Ben Rector is coming to Milwaukee on Sept 23rd. Would that be a good birthday present for you? He replied...If it means going on a date with you, then yes. I know...he's pretty awesome. Guess what? Dan got Ben Rector tickets for his birthday!!!!!
And there you have it....aren't we crazy?!?!?

I fumbled some words. I said "um" way too many times. My voice sound super high. I could go on and on picking apart myself, but I am NOT going to do that! I was just SO blessed by the entire experience.
Never in a million years did I think that this would happen. I am having a hard time expressing just how much this meant to me.
I didn't sleep at all last night.
Today I am going on TV.
How did this happen?
Will I mess up?
How did I get here?
Will anyone watch?
Are the crafts good enough?
Will I get lost?
I did a lot of reflecting last night on how I got to the point of being on TV. What started as a casual conversation between 2 friends has turned into reality. Do I have it all together? No, I don't. What I do know is that I have been blessed beyond my wildest dreams! Fridays at the Farm was something I had dreamed of doing. One year later I am looking back at all the events and sessions that have taken place at our "farm" and I am in awe of the power of prayer!
Thank you for letting me turn my dream into real life. Thank you all for your support and love!
Today is gonna be crazy! TV???? Yikes! I had better go get myself ready!
You better believe I am taking my camera today! Here I come Fox 6....
