Farm-to-Fork Dinner with Hungry for Truth

June 26, 2018

That time of year for the Hungry for Truth Farm-to-Fork dinner again! I really look forward to this event every year (it was the 3rd annual!) and this year surely blew me away again! It’s a spectacularly beautiful event filled with engaging conversations and mouth-watering food.

Hungry for Truth is an initiative from South Dakota Soybean Research & Promotion Council designed to open conversations about food between South Dakotan consumers and the farmers who passionately grow it. Their goal for this event is to have open, honest conversations about how our food is raised and its safety and to provide a night where farmers and consumers get to meet and discuss anything and everything about farming, produce, and food safety. Truly a unique experience getting to know the farmers who feed us!

This year’s event was held at the gorgeous Meadow Barn right outside of Sioux Falls. It has the perfect indoor and outdoor flow and was great for the hot windy weather we had! The Event Company designed the space and the combination of eucalyptus and florals were GOOOORGEOUS!

Leo turns THREE!

June 12, 2018

Leo man is THREE! What a young little boy he’s turned into! Can’t believe how much he’s grown up! So fun to share our birthdays together on June 8!! (yes we have the same birthday! Birth story here!)

Leo is ALL BOY!! Obsessed with trucks and cars! He has some sort of monster truck or construction vehicle in his hand at all times and sleeps with one too! He hardly shows interest in anything else BUT trucks! Especially ones that make noise! My Mom and Dad got him a Power Wheels truck that he has rode non-stop since his birthday!

He is a really sweet boy, he’s the first to say ‘thank you’ and can be such a sweet boy. But also at the same time can turn crazy too! If he wants something, he wants it NOW, and he makes his mind up about something in an instant! He can be stubborn but I love his little spark :)

Vegas! With Kids!

May 23, 2018

I am on a whole nother stratosphere of crazy with this trip! But, I managed Vegas and airports and flying with 3 kids! And they had a TON OF FUN. The pools were incredible, the sun was shining, and the naps weren’t happening! :) It was an experience for sure!

My sister had a conference in Vegas, so my other sister and her two kids and our Mom all decided to join her last minute and booked a trip to Vegas! My sister’s husband and my husband were both on the same bachelor party trips, so we were solo anyways! What fun to meet up in Vegas – book the tickets and worry about everything later, right?! Basically!! EEEK!
