Hey loves! I know I am soooo way overdue for a post it’s not even funny and I am SO sorry! A lot has been happening over here in the past few weeks from me being sick, starting another business venture (super pumped to tell you more about it and hoping a lot of you join me! Boston what I'm talking about coming soon!), the impulsive decision to get goats, IEP time at school (if you work in Special Education – you know what I mean), and just the general business that accompanies an ordinary day! For those of you who may not be familiar – I work as a speech therapist in the school by day and blogger by night! And sometimes it can be a challenge to juggle the two and this is one of those times! At least, until I get through May!!
So like I was saying a lot has been going on here and while it’s been super busy it has been SO much fun! If you follow me on instagram you probably thought I gave up fashion blogging and traded in for farm life – not true! While my blog does focus on fashion, I also include beauty, DIY, AND lifestyle! This new venture falls under the “lifestyle category.” SO if you hate seeing pictures of adorable baby goats and goat families – sorry but I’m not that sorry! They are the cutest!! I never knew they could be so much fun! My reasoning behind getting them was that we have some land we are wanting cleared down by our barn and I thought “Goats are cute and they’re basically inexpensive lawn mowers!”- which they are but they are so much more than that! I tell you who's who in the description under the pics!
Seriously I can’t stand how cute they are. Mister, is a pygmy male who isn’t mean but is very shy. He’s warming up to me but I still can’t love on him like I can Marmie and Prince and he will usually only let me pet him when food is present. Marmie on the other hand is a Nigerian Dwarf female who up until yesterday I thought was preggo and expecting her first babies within the next month or so! I have been SOOOO excited to play with baby goats but sadly it seems that she wasn't bred like the man I bought her from told me she was. Sad, I know. I think Marmie believes she is a dog. She follows me around the yard, just wants to be loved on and near me, has even tried to jump in the car with me, and cries when I leave her. They really do have such big personalities! A few weeks ago (on the day Prince died - can we just pause and have a RIP moment for his passing? like seriously how sad was that?! Raspberry Beret is on of my fave songs!!) anyway, on that day I brought home another little fella and named him...you guessed it..."Prince"! He is seriously the cutest, most adorable little thing! I love how tiny he is (he is only 2 months) and his little pink nose and clear blue eyes!! He's such a pretty boy that he looks as if he should be a girl! While they are little and cute they do require some work. I had to get them a fence – shoutout to my cousin Landon who helped me with fencing and went on the road trip with me to pick them up – they have to have shelter, food to supplement the grass, water, they have to be dewormed every 4 months or so and their hoofs have to be trimmed. So now I am getting used to this side offer life! It’s a good bit of work but it is such a fun experience! I’ve always wanted to have a small hobby farm with goats and chickens so it’s been a lot of fun getting to do the goat part of that!
Just wanted to drop in and give you guys a life update since I’ve been a little MIA recently. So much to catch you guys up on so stay tuned for other life updates as well as more fashion and beauty posts!! Hope you all enjoy the pictures of my new babies and have a great rest of the week!
XOXO - erin
