1 | sawtooth relay | big saturday tomorrow. we have the sawtooth relay breathing down our necks. let's make it quite clear that my team certainly isn't going to win...but i get nervous and competitive every. single. time. i can't even help it. it must be the altitude. 5000+ feet.
or maybe it's running with a stunning backdrop? oh idaho. be still my heart. you'll have it always.
it's also quite possible i get competitive simply because my sister flies in for this race each year.
or maybe it's the solid chance that we may be faced with horrific running conditions like two years ago. regardless...i keep coming back. year after year. i'm absolutely addicted. in addition, the last time i ran this race i was 21 weeks pregnant, so we'll see how this year shakes out. wish us luck.
2 | hot off the press - September FARM has a new ad space open! i decided to start offering the saturday confessional spot as an ad space because i wanted you guys to be able to have more freedom with your post! plus you'll have the option to get in on the monthly group giveaway, or you can do your own giveaway, plus you get to take over my blog for the entire weekend. i totally dig it...and you should too!

sound like it's your thing? visit my advertise page. the first four gals to get on the confessional ad space can use the code SATURDAY25 for 25% off!

3 | father's day...right around the corner. i'll share two pictures just so you guys know that my gal has one of the very very best around.
4 | do you follow me on instagram? if you don't, you may have missed a little something. see that guy up there and down there? he bought a school bus. he said it was a need...not a want. hmm? regardless...he's one happy farmer and he certainly does deserve it. and who am i to deny my farmer a 1991 short bus? i mean, it's not like we don't have 3000 acres to store it somewhere.

we had to pick it up an hour and a half away from the farm. i brought my laptop to document...and i wrote a blog post. multitasking at it's finest...or something like that.
5 | totally random, but totally something that occurred this week...amy, over at {the farmer's wife}, and i got together yesterday and she was kind enough to snaps some new shots of me for the blog. they were much needed since i usually have to pop into my hard drive to hunt a decent one down...either that or crop out my pregnant belly from two years ago. i have a point...i swear.
there really is nothing more awkward than getting your picture taken alone. i dislike it. i loath it. and what should i do with my hands? i support models making thousands of dollars a day...that's hard stuff...modeling.
out of 100+, there were probably only three or four usable. and trust me...this isn't because of amy's lack of ability. girlfriend can take a picture. it's me. it'll always be me. so with that...

happy friday. i'll be running my fanny in mere hours and have super soar legs all weekend. burns so good, right?

it's link time!
