We have an extra honorary Mary staying with us this week - she’s a return guest who fits right into ranch life (and “interned” with us last year and last summer) and is a big help. She loves our animals so much I couldn’t find her the other day, until I walked by the back door and found her snuggled up with both Beau and Buck on the cement floor of the mudroom! (Used to be turf in there but having a calf frequenting the mudroom made that real messy real quick / that’s the kitchen floor tile reflection). We’re all glad she’s here but the dogs are especially happy with the extra attention! #ranchlife#guestsontheranch#beauandbuck#greatpyrenees#puppysnugs#fivemarys
The birthday girl couldn’t have been more excited about her cake this morning (even though Tess thought she could help make her smile bigger )
Hailey, my right-hand Five Marys gal, was talking to JJ this week about her birthday and somehow they figured out “fat unicorn cakes” were a thing - with a cherubic chubby unicorn passed out next to a half eaten cake.
JJ kept talking about a “drunk unicorn cake” (her interpretation!) and I had no idea what she was talking about until Hailey showed up after brunch with this amazing creation!! Truly too good to eat and JJ’s wildest cupcake unicorn dreams came true AND our awesome waitress at the restaurant also made JJ her family recipe strawberry angel food cake too. What a lucky and very loved seven year old you are MaryJane! #fatunicorncake #ohjjstyle#m5maryjane#jjturnsseven#sevenyearsold#m5birthdays#loveyouJJ#fivemarysfarms#fivemarys
Closing the last gate on the hill last night after feeding cows and the girls decided to walk home from there - barefoot in February of course! Enjoying a little afternoon sunshine before some rain moved in today (here’s hoping!) #ranchlife#myfourmarys#fivemarysfarms#fivemarys
My Saturday sidekick, Tiny Tess who still fits on shoulders, is helping me run some errands off the ranch and pick up my mom at the airport today for a visit! My Dad is driving up too (he was home working while my mom was visiting my sister in Nashville) and we’re going to have a fun little celebration for JJ’s birthday tonight!
Photos are coming back from the Carhartt shoot (sneak peeks of their Spring ‘18 line!) and I can’t even believe the talent of @victoriawill and the @carhartt team! love having these memories from someone else’s lens!! #tinytess#momandtess#carharttatfivemarys#carharttontheranch#carharttkids#carhartt#fivemarysfarms#fivemarys
