We’re Farming, y’all!

Well kinda. I don’t know if I have mentioned it… but I’ve been trying to start a new hobby – GARDENING. I spoke to my boss about it, and we’re going to create a company garden! Here’s a before and after shot! It’s going to be completely organic and its humongous! Or rather, it’s a mini-farm.Hanschen Klein- Farming


Y’all know me, I had to create a plan. We’re designing the first of a few (I hope) LEED platinum houses in a small development area and we’ll be able to plant a garden next to the pool house. Look at what all we’re planting!! I can’t wait to see the big sunflowers and all those TOMATOES….


Do y’all have any tips for “gardening” or farming?? We have our farmer’s almanac and we’re going to do a soils report… but what is the best way to organically put nutrients back into the soil without using fertilizer? All I know about gardening is that MiracleGrow is a god send… go figure. And we’ll compost… but that just doesn’t seem like it’ll be enough.

Today I am thankful: that my father is not in the Emergency Room. Poor daddy.

Oh Life…


Well, yep… that’s me with my boss. This year has certainly been a big year. Full of big business accomplishments, which I hope is a good enough excuse for all of those I have not called or updated lately. I’m still alive, I’m still around… and I’m still working! I’m trying to find balance. Balance is a good thing in work, life, relationships, health, fitness… I could use some balance. And I may need some help when I get a little lost… so bare with me.


IMG_3315In other news, we have recently been doing work in Little Rock, AR and we were fortunate enough to be able to stay at the Peabody Hotel. I can now say that I have seen the Marching Ducks and they were so cute!! And I got to send my grandfather a really great post card with ducks all over it. AND, just a side note, Bieber stayed at the hotel the night we left. I didn’t know if y’all would think that was interesting or not… I guess he wanted to see the ducks, too 🙂

IMG_3152I’m not quite sure why, but this is my favorite picture from the trip.


IMG_3154I really love this guy. It’s one of those things, where I just can’t remember life without him. He’s a great best friend. He talks and howls and I love him… and he’s really FLUFFY!


IMG_3153AND, look at how crafty my best friend is!!! This is my stellar Christmas present that she made me. I. Love. It. No not that best friend up there, this best friend… down here!


Yep, that’s special.
