Advent Calendar Blog Hop & Farm House Kitchen Update!

Hi guys!
This Saturday, Ruthie will be hosting an Advent Calendar Blog Hop! Have you ever wanted to make an advent calender, but just didn't know what to do or where to start? Well, then this is the blog hop for you! Ruthie has lined up 15 super talented and creative ladies and they each have created a unique advent calendar. There will be blog candy at each stop, which means 15 chances to win! So make sure to mark you calendar!

Also, many of you have asked how the farm house kitchen make-over is going. Here is a video update. The new kitchen floor is going in today, and tomorrow the new carpet! Our little farm house/get away has been in some stage of remodel for 26 years, and it's finally almost finished! I'm so excited, and can't wait to get in the new kitchen and cook! Our first family get together at the newly remodeled farm house, will be my birthday party next month! Thanks so much for your interest, and thanks for watching!

Have an awesome day!

    Also looking forward to the next cooking video/recipe.

  5. I love the country. I left SE Missouri 7 years ago, I sure do miss it. I have replace the country with a place up North, almost the same but different. I love to be away from technology. Love your videos!!

  8. New to your blog Mary. This is the first I have heard of your farmhouse, but looks like a fun undertaking. I think it has a wonderfully large kitchen that will be so fun to work in. Like what I see but have no idea what it looked like before. I love to decorate and sounds like you do also. Must be nice to have a get away. Best of luck in remodeling and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. You have alot to be thankful for.

  9. every year I mean to make an advent calendar. I never have. This is the year!!! YAY! Can't wait for the hop.

  10. Mary, I love your place, so happy for you. Can't wait to see it all done, thank you so much for sharing. Mary P.
