Succulents & Cactus

I had said after Mara eating my favorite succulent and cactus last year, and having a not-so-green thumb that I was NOT going to spend any money on any type of plants this year. Well, Monday it was so pretty that I couldn't resist. And Coach sort of talked me into it. 
So off to Home Depot I go! It really didn't take me as long as I thought because they seemed to be limited on what was left. I made my way back to the farm and started on all the fun!


I found this in the monkey grass when I first joined Coach at the house.. I had leftover yellow paint and gave this ancient pot a facelift. Coach and I love all the character of it!

 I found another pot in the milk barn.. it got a facelift too as you can see.. and I added a touch of Chalk Board paint.
All pretty in their new homes!


Love any kind of bling and sparkle! I remembered I had these and added just a few to a couple of the pots.





After the chalkboard paint dried, I added an "H" for the finishing touch.


Love the pink! My Mom would love it too.. It's her favorite color.


Have you planted any flowers for spring or purchased any succulents/cactus for your home?

Easter 2014

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! What a beautiful day it was to celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord!! I felt so BLESSED yesterday as our families were able to come together at our home for lunch. It was absolutely wonderful to have our families together under one roof for fellowship. The food was phenomenal and we probably could have fed an army with all that we had! Don't worry tho because what didn't get eaten yesterday was divided up amongst everyone for leftovers. We don't waste any wonderful food around here!
After lunch, Mimi and I hid eggs for a fun egg hunt on the farm... 53 eggs to be exact, with two of those being golden eggs, filled with a 5 and 10 dollah bill. So much fun watching Gigi and Knox take off running with Mara trailing right behind them on a mission to find those eggs!
After the egg hunt, the Hoppers had a mini photo session with Grandma on the front porch. She sure was decked out! 
As always, here is my picture overload, in order they were taken in.. 


These were delish! Mama Jane gave me the cook book these were in for my birthday. Low in sugar, fat, and calories.



Kyli didn't know what to think of all the food in the house. She wasn't going too far away from the kitchen.

Dessert Bar.






Ty, Gigi, me, Knox, and Kolton




"Wait.. get my good side."



Grandma's here!
My father-in-law requested Reese Cup Cupcakes.. he got 'em.




I love this of Mara and Grandma. I didn't see but at one point she had tried to jump in her lap. Bless her heart.. she scared her pretty bad.



Pop is always being goofy.

My new 'patio' table ended up being the kid table. And as you see Kyli isn't far behind.



All of the boys like to wrestle. Boys will be boys.

AND THEY'RE OFF!!

Mara is sooo funny! I really wish y'all could see her in person!



Knox found the $10 golden egg!

So funny!

Hahaha I LOVE this! My little Sylvester Stallone look-a-like..



Mara was trying to find some too.

Egg hunt finished.

My sweet Ty-Ty.

Coach, his mom Connie, sister Tracie, Grandma, and dad Ricky.







Please remove your glasses for pictures.


And he's had enough.. give them back. Ha.






I can't express what a wonderful time we had! Even the 3 Amigos were great with everyone in the house.

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 
And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you to Galilee; there shall ye see him; lo, I have told you.
Matthew 28: 5-7
