🐶This is handsome Rolo 🐶. He's our big-hearted Weenie pup. He is 1 of 5 in our furry family. He's a rescue for whom a 6 hour drive to retrieve was nothing. It was love at first sight after seeing his sweet face in a single blurry picture about 6 years ago. He is such a sweet boy and loves to bask in warm sunshine, chase things into the woods, or snuggle under bed covers (& yes there have been many nights of thunder where we have hosted all 5 dogs AND our toddler in our full-sized bed 🙊😳😍). THANKFULLY we just upgraded to a Queen size! . His best buddy is our old man Amigo (our short haired boy chihuahua). He will no doubt NOT be our last Weenie-hound ❤️--once you have a Dachshund there's no not having one 🐶! 👶He is also the youngest of our furry kids so, although we know not every one of our sweet old pups will see the land we purchase in 5-6 years for the Farmstead, this guy will most likely be one of our first official Farm Dogs 👨🏻‍🌾 👩🏻‍🌾🐶 ---------------------------------------------- #weenlife #dachshunds #rescueanimals #rescuedogs #foreverhome #adoptnevershop #furryfamily #furrychildren #redweenie #ourfamily #homesteaddog #farmdog #huntingdog #rescuedog #veganblogger #homesteadbloggers #homesteadblog #veganfarmers #homesteading #veganfarmers #vegangarden #vegangardener #permaculture #veganpermaculture #animalphotography #rightwhereweare #slowandsteady #petphotography

🤛🏻✅💪🏼 It was a busy week/day. 💪🏼✅🤛🏻 . • I (Athena) sprouted mung beans for the first time (don't laugh...baby steps!!) • Made date-sweetened vanilla almond milk with leftovers of each, FROZE them & at my GENIUS husband's suggestion, used them for some creamy aeropress brewed ice coffee 🤤🤤🤤 • Strung some Farmer's Market greasy beans • Saved my own Aquafaba from home cooked chickpeas for future vegan donut & homemade vegan mayo recipes • Picked and am drying dill and Tulsi (holy basil) from our herb garden • And made a TON of hummus...also retired an old food processor as it started smoking after a few seconds of use.....yikes 😬😳😤. . And other fun things...like making necklaces with my daughter and reading stories, giving kisses to her and all the puppies (6 at current count, 5 of our own + 1 summer guest), researching straw-bale gardening (not sure how I feel about it yet...will probably do my own version with 1/2 bales and more compost --we have hard, compacted red clay....any suggestions???), refined the plan for the fall garden taking into account less sun in our new yard than we'd hoped 😐, & made dinner out of 6 different left-over meals (!!!!!!!) WHEW!!!! And it's only 5:30pm! #familymovienight #stillfeellikeihaveSOmuchtodo -------------------------------------------------- ♻️Reduce, reuse, THEN recycle♻️ -------------------------------------------------- #homesteadskills #sprouting #homemade #homesteading #veganhomesteadibg #homesteaders #veganblog #homesteadblog #farmersmarket #veganicfarming #veganfood #veganicgardeners #veganfarmers #permaculture #veganpermaculture #onestepatatime #gardening #vegangardening #appalachia #asheville #veganasheville #canning #preserving #zerowaste #nowaste #reuse #zerowasteliving #homesteadingskills

🙌🏻BENEFITS of milking the Family Oat-Milk "Cow" 🐮 include:🙌🏻 . • No danger of getting kicked (except maybe by your toddler) • The Oats don't eat much • No need to wake up before the "but"-crack of dawn to do the milking • A quart of organic milk costs us about $0.30(!)😳 • The pulp makes delicious breakfast cookies • . 😪Downsides include: . • You don't get to give a cow kisses every day • You don't get to receive cow kisses every day • #oatmilk #creamy #organic #plantbasedmilk #homemade #milkingtheoats #frugal #homesteading -------------------------------------------------- RECIPE: 1 cup rolled oats 4 cups water (less for a bit creamier milk) 1 pinch salt (Optional) 1 pitted date and/or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and/or 2Tbs cacao powder for chocolate milk. 1/4 cup berries for berry milk...the options are endless!! DIRECTIONS: Blend until smooth and creamy. Place cheese-cloth or similar cloth or but milk bag into a quart size jar or other container with an air-tight lid. Pour in the blended milk. Gently "milk" the bag/cloth until all the milk has been filtered through and you are just getting the "cream" out of the bag. Seal and date the jar and refrigerate. • The milk is good for a week depending on the temperature of your fridge. • Try it in roasted dandelion tea for a great creamy detox treat! • Freeze the pulp to make baked treats later. Recipes are easy to find. Or just mash with bananas and cinnamon and bake, top with avocado blended with cocoa for a chocolate mousse dessert with nosugar, vegan, paleo and all things good! • #frugalliving -------------------------------------------------- #homesteadblog #farmsteadblog #farmsteading #veganicfarming #veganfarm #vegangardener #vegangarden #simpleliving #costsavings #qualityfood #buyinbulk #canning #preservingfood #veganhomesteading #theveganhomesteaders #birdnbeastsfarmstead #nutmilks #oatmilk #cashewmilk #almondmilk #hempmilk #flaxmilk

Good morning from Seoul, South Korea friends! It’s the afternoon in Juneau but I’m just now heading to catch an early flight to Russia. What a whirlwind this trip has already been - I can’t wait to tell you about it. But in the meantime, there’s a new blog post up for your reading pleasure while I am away from home.

Y'all I'm back to blogging. I took a break from it to figure out the direction I wanted to go, and I'm happy to be back at it. . I'm a little nervous to even announce that--scary to put myself back out there again. But it doesn't make sense to blog to an empty audience, so I'm letting y'all know. My goal is to be inspiring and encouraging--and maybe just a little bit funny. No one likes a boring blog, amiright? .

I have pictured this fencing for months- through my winter of dreaming, through my spring planning. It is finally coming to fruition and I couldn't be more pleased! I can just imagine August's bounty draping over the fence and into the rows, tendrils sprawling over the pebbles. #gardenersareoptomistic #potagerdreams #homesteaddreams

Darlene finally let me snap a picture of her🐔 . . I think she’s just the prettiest chicken ever, but she’s never liked me. She’s never really liked anyone other than our Easter Egger, Tilly. Maybe one day she’ll warm up to me 💕 I kind of enjoy the challenge. At least she’ll make pretty eggs! 🥚 . . . . . #backyardchickens #smallfarm #homestead #homesteadblog #homesteadersofig #homesteadlife #farmher #farmersofinstagram #raisingchickens #easteregger #southern #farmlife #southernblogger #animalphotography #onthehomestead #mooreanimalsplease #sustainableliving #ranchlife #growyourownfood #farmfresheggs #countryliving #happyhomesteading #hobbyfarm

Do not let this adorable face fool you! 🙅🏼‍♀️☝️ Butternut has made it her mission to let the new baby know that she is the queen of the goat pen. There is currently zero trust between Butternut, Buckwheat, and I...Alfalfa on the other hand, he’s an angel. Wish me luck as we get adjusted 😩🐐🐐🐐🐐.

Our back fence has random pieces of tin from our porch roof, cinder blocks, bricks, our used baby gate, and our old laundry room door leaned up against the sides. . . Why? . . Because our dog is an escape artist, and we don’t have money to properly fix the issue. . . It’s something that I usually regard as nothing more than a huge eye sore and a reminder that Charlie is disobedient and driving me up a wall. It also tends to ruin my pictures, which is more aggravating than anything. . . . But this evening I sat outside with the chickens for a while, breathing and reminding myself that the life we have is beautiful. Marshall is learning to talk. Our dogs are disobedient, but eager to please. The chickens adore us and follow me everywhere. My husband is a wonderful leader and companion. Life is good, and this ugly ol’ door is beautiful in its own way! . . Find the beauty and the the blessings in your situation, and remember that tomorrow is a new day 💕 Happy Sunday, y’all 🌻 . . . . . . #farmstead #smallfarm #texasfarm #texashomestead #homesteadlife #southern #southernmama #sunday #blessed #photography #findthebeauty #nature #countryliving #countrylife #southernlife #rural #sahm #homesteadblog #momswithcameras #momblogger #momblog #itsspring #springtime #selfsufficiency #backyardchickens #chickengirls #secretgarden

After 5 months of being behind on something at all times, I can now proudly say I’m 100% caught up! 👍🏻😊 #ad . . To celebrate and get my nerves back under control, I’m drinking some organic chamomile tea from @totaltea2 😍 . . Ever since we moved, my life has been absolute chaos. I ALWAYS had an email to reply to or a picture that was almost due. My son was learning to walk and our puppies were being... well, puppies. It was no way to live! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Thank God for my patient and kind husband, and for my determination. There were many days I couldn’t even handle opening my laptop because I would get so anxious. But my mama didn’t raise a quitter, and I put my big girl pants on and barreled through. . . SO. This tea, y’all! You know I’m a Texan (if you didn’t know that, where have ya been?) A PROUD Texan. So when @totaltea2 offered to send me a case of their teas to try out, you know I jumped on it. They’re a family owned business in Lubbock☀️ And I have to say, I’m diggin’ the tea AND the vibe 👍🏻😍☕️ . . They have a ton of flavors, all with different health benefits. I’m proud to be an ambassador for them! 🌻 I’m SUCH a chamomile fanatic, so I thought I’d show you this one first. But I’ll be sharing my experience with the other flavors in the upcoming weeks! 😊 . . Check out their Instagram page and order yourself some detox tea 😊 or maybe we can be chamomile buddies🌼 Either way, supporting this family business is the way to go 🙏🏻 #totaltealife . . . . #chamomile #chamomiletea #stressed #stressrelief #yummy #tea #hottea #brandambassador #bloglife #productphotographer #productphotography #southernmama #texas #proudtexan #supportfamilybusiness #brandrep #momblog #homesteadlife #homesteadblog #momsofinstagram #boymom #momsofboys #toddlermom #momswithcameras #naturalliving #organicmama

Meet Mabel 🐓 She’s 9 weeks old, and just the sweetest little thing ever 😍🌻 . . When she was a day old, she would run up at me like a maniac, staring sideways at me with her beady little eyes.

Nothing has changed, other than her pretty big girl feathers! 😂 She still runs up to me every time I walk outside! . . . #mabelthechicken #raisingchicks #raisingchickens #backyardchickens #homesteadblogger #homesteadblog #homesteader #farm #farmlife #farmher #smallfarm #oneacrefarm #chickencoop #momblog #momlife #toddlermom #selfsufficient #sustainableliving #fresheggs #southernliving #southernmama #photography #momswithcameras #homestead #homesteadlife

#ad My little gardener, still rockin’ his outfit from @boodywearbaby 😊🌱🌼 . . The Texas weather has been nuts lately! Hailing one minute, blisteringly hot the next. Today, when you’re in the sun, you feel like your face might melt off. In the shade, you’re freezing! 🙄😆 . . His outfit from @boodywear keeps him warm while still allowing for air to move through the fabric so he doesn’t get too hot. It’s perfection 👌🏻🌼 As dirty as he gets, it’s holding up well! If you want a set for your outdoorsy little one, I have a discount code 😉 . . 🌻 USE CODE MYMOM20 🌻 . . On a side note, does anyone know how to keep a toddler from digging up your seedlings when you look away? And if not, does anyone want to come take this baby off my hands for the day? 😂🌱🌼 . . . #boodybabyus #momblog #mommyblog #homesteadblog #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #homesteadersofinstagram #babiesofig #boymom #toddlermom #momsofboys #brandrepbaby #brandrep #cutenessoverload #mamasboy #garden #gardening #littlegardener #growyourownfood #vegetablegarden

CUTE BOOT ALERT!!!! 🚨 Finally, a pair of work boots that I can wear around the farm. Ankle height 100% rubber boots, found over at Target in their gardening section!!! Ankle height means I can wear these with shorts (or my weird jean capris I’m rocking right now), making boot rash a faint memory from my zoo days. And that pattern!! 😎😍 This is a happy hipster. . . . . . #ignorethewhitelegs #backtobottomwatering #farmlife #homesteadlife #homesteadstyle #farmstyle #rubberboots #target #floralpattern #gardenboot #boots #homesteadblog

It’s been fun! 😍 I’m not gonna lie, it makes me a little sad when I take pictures I’m proud of, but I can’t even use them on my own blog 😂 But hey, at least I can share some of my pictures here. . . This is my Mama’s Slow Cooker Mediterranean Chicken Recipe. And it’s THE. BOMB. Shoutout to my Mama @becky.haute.salon 💋 . .

Cute little baby 🐮 . . They’re filling the hole that my lack of baby goats has left 😂🐮 Dipping our feet into the world of homesteading has been fun so far, but I’ve quickly realized how much it costs to get started. If we had the money, I would bring home some goats and piglets today. . . Fingers crossed that my freelance work picks up again. I have four writing jobs, not including my two blogs, and I did that to myself so I would make consistent money. Unfortunately, my two highest paying jobs have been in a slump the last month, which means no extra money for my next big projects. 💔🐐 . . For now, the neighbor’s cute little calf and our little chickens will keep me occupied as I plan (or, you know, longingly watch a bunch of videos of baby goats) . . . . . #homesteadblog #homesteader #homesteadlife #homestead #texas #texasbornandraised #longhorn #babycalf #cows #countrylife #countryliving #countrymama #southernmama #southern #farmher #momblog #momlife #momblogger #wahm #freelancewriter #toddlermom #farmland #startingahomestead #babygoats #itsspring

I planted 3 different types of tomatoes in this egg carton seed starter - Green Envy, Brandywine, and Cherry tomatoes. Unfortunately, the dogs knocked it over so I don't know which ones are which. Just happy to see that they're growing well. I'd like to add more heirloom tomatoes to the garden eventually.

My blog is up and running! Been wanting to do this for awhile. I went back and forth between what I wanted my blog to be focused on and went with my passion for farming. If you know me, you know I've always loved this lifestyle and it's something I've wanted since I was a little girl. So I'm happy to share my advice, tips, and experiences with y'all. Yes, I'm still a flight attendant. And yes, I'm still in the Army NG and going on my first deployment next year. I've just decided to focus my social media accounts on my blog for now and keep my personal life to myself. There's too much negativity on social media these days, so I'm going to spam all of my accounts with baby goat pictures and gardening advice. I'll probably be changing my usernames over as well (too many creepers on here). Thanks friends 💗
