It's All In Our Yard

With the few months that we have left spending time at home and in our huge yard, we make the most out of it and we always like to hang out outside in our backyard. Yes, we are moving to a new town about four hours away from Chetopa, Kansas. Bittersweet experience this is going to be, but we hope this will turn out to be of a good move.  I'll talk more about that later on. Anyway, lately we have been enjoying some fruits and vegetables in our yard and we got to pick some plums again. And from picking plum turns out to be of a pictorial moment as well. We sure love our yard so much and we worked so hard to get this place beautiful. Here are some photos.

You may have noticed by now if you are following my blog that my boy loves to wear nothing but a diaper when he is at home. Cute though!

Picking up some plums and my little man's truck is loading them up to take back inside the house. Thank you little man for helping mama.

My little girl loves to eat plums or fruits in general. She is the one that has the appetite. 

Our yard. 
We have all kinds of things going on here and if you want to know, I'll mention some of the fruits we have. Raspberry bush, Plums, Rainier cherries, blueberries, gooseberries, Pomegranate, pears, apples, grapes, blackberries, vegetables, etc. I mean tons of things and whenever my husband mows the yard it takes him hours to get it done.

From picking plums to mama pictorial. This is what I wore. 
As you can see I always like to wear my hair in a bun. It's easy to do when I don't have much time to even fix my hair. What can you say I am a mother of two. 

Top: Freebie. Was from my mother-in-law. Altered and I added that detail on the front with little white buttons.
Skirt: Another thrifted skirt that was part of $1 a sack. Shortened a bit.
Shoes: SIMPLE $16.99 via 6pm.com. Awesome and comfy shoes.

I love it! Perfect for wearing even around the house. Comfy, comfy, comfy. 
I could no longer find another pair of these online.

Behind us is our vineyard that my husband worked really hard for.  Excited to get some fresh homegrown grapes this year.

Have a great day!!!


  1. I will pray na easy lahat sa pag lipat ninyo. It will be all good for all of you! Take care!
    My kids too love no clothes than underwear when they are at home.

  2. I love to have a place like yours. I always wanted to have big backyard with many fruit trees. The problem is we can't afford to buy that kind of house and land.

    well, hope everything will turn out good when you and your family move. Have a nice day my friend and enjoy.


  3. Hope you will have an easy move. I wish to have fruit trees and veggies in our backyard as well :-)

    1. Mommy that is why we are a bit sad we are leaving because the place where we are going to end won't have a yard as huge as this. We just hope we can find and nice house and a nice place to stay and maybe even decide to buy a new one when we like it. We are still going to keep this place though since we will be coming back during holidays, summer or during school breaks. Thank you!

  10. nice to be back here!! what a garden, I was all excited about the fruits that you have there! we are in our third year here and actually started planting veggies and fruits. and we do not do a lot of mowing;)
    great to see your kids!!

    1. Hey there, Mayet! Thank you for stopping by. We sure do a lot of mowing in this yard or else the city will evict us if we don't. LOL! Lots of mowing to do especially now that there are tons of things happening in our yard. It makes for a very lengthy mowing. My poor husband! Good luck on planting your veggies and fruits! It's nice to have something fresh and that we grew it ourselves.

  11. oh wow! i love plums i find them so yummy! lucky u have that in your yard. ur little boy is so cute with just his diaper. hehehe.. presko daw mommy. =)
