Farm Eatin' is the life for me

This weekend we headed to our favorite local farm, 7 Oaks Farm. We are blessed to have several local farms you can visit and buy fresh produce from, but this by far is our favorite and is known for it's exceptionally good corn!
They have a little kids play area, and some animals to feed/see as well as a little market where they sell their goods along with a few other local items. They also have a picnic area, and a garden where you can pick your own flowers and fresh herbs!
They also have a little ice cream stand that sells Umpqua Ice Cream, which not only is the best ice cream in the world, it's made just north of us!

As much as I dream of doing my own garden someday...I don't think I inherited my Grandmother's green thumb. So...this is a great second best!

I love the freshness of it all, it totally tastes better, and I love supporting a local business!

This is the best shot I got of this...he just won't hold still :)

He wanted me to feed the geese, but it says right on the fence "Geese may pinch, be careful when you feed them"
No thanks.

Dinner that night, all from the farm!
Onions, corn, Yukon golds and zucchini!

Jack's first experience with corn on the cob!

Diggin in...

Oh yes, that's good!

I also my Pioneer Woman's Pico De Gallo from the produce we got!
With *Weight Watchers the pico de gallo is ZERO points, and 12 chips is only 4 points. So I load up each chip and it's a great snack that is healthy and filling!!

*oh yeah...down 9lbs :)


  1. we have a big garden thanks to my hubby's green thumb and I love it! I can't wait for our corn to be ready...soon! We also make HUGE batches of Salsa later in teh summer when all the tomatoes and peppers are ready! YUM!

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
