Dude, it's a tractor and a tidbit of wisdom

I'm a farmer guys. Or at least I rode a tractor today. Which kinda makes me a farmer. And you know you're a farmer if you have a picture with a tractor. So there. By the way this is not what I wore. I know, I read your mind on that one.

I was a little stressed out today {and may have had a slight/not so slight, tearful emotional breakdown} so I told Dusty at dinner that I just needed to make a list. Because that's what I do when I'm stressed, as if writing it down will keep it from clogging up my already-foggy head. Dusty offered his advice on the listmaking process which goes as follows: "When you make a list, you should always add some things that you've already done or that are easy to do so that you can cross them off and feel good about yourself. And then your list is already half done and you feel super productive." This is either ridiculous or really brilliant. I'm going with brilliant. Notice his additions to the list. Little stinker.

One more thing, I need all of you techies to climb out of the woodworks and help me get this tutorial video upload crackalackin'. Seriously, 8 hours were spent today trying to upload the thing and Youtube finally got tired of trying and gave up on me. Same thing with Blogger. So if you guys have any advice, comments, or weird stories, I'd love to hear them. Thank ya much!
Love,
Ramsey

you look cute! and your tomato legs aren't as...tomato-y...as they were before :)

This is probably one of my favorite outfits you've put together. So simple, yet so pulled together and I love how the scarf makes your eyes seriously POP! Have you tried matching up the opposite ends of the scarf to make triangle so that it's shorter, and then belting it the same way? That would look way cute with this outfit.

Kelli said...

Dang girl, how do you always think up the cutest outfits? I never would have thought to pair that scarf with that dress!

Also, your eyes in these pictures make me want to run out and buy bright blue colored contacts...because they are SO gorgeous :)

Jamie Walker said...

I've been struggling with the video upload thing too. I don't know what to deal is! And sometimes I make a list and then put on my list that I need to make a list. Then cross it off haha.

Hannah =) said...

Gorgeous dress! I've been needing to find more spring/summery dresses to wear soon...soon! *fingers crossed*
Dusty speaks wisdom! That is by far the best list-making technique ever. I always write at least one or two things on my list that I've already done, because of the wonderful feeling crossing things off brings. :)

Kiss Dusty! Awwwww! So sweet! Wait, if I had a photo taken with a sewing machine does that translate..? :) Great photos today!

Kendra said...

This scarf makes your eyes look amazing! I spent forever last year trying to upload a tutorial video onto youtube, it did work eventually though! Good luck!

 PIECE OF CAKE. PEACE OF MIND.

craftydiva said...

Love this look, you have been inspiring me to try different outfits and taking chances!

(S) said...

I need to make myself a book of outfits you've worn so that I can remember the amazing ideas you have. Seriously, I haven't disliked a single thing I've seen. That scarf is amazing and I wish I had a chic, simple dress like that! You look wonderful!

Gentri said...

Wish I could help in the techy department... :/ All I know is that blogger can take a long time to upload videos sometimes. That's all. haha!

Um, I would totally move to Florida and be your makeup artist! I used to live there and miss it dearly. So it's settled then. Haha! Jk.

Oh, and i just have to say, you have the most beautiful hair in the world!! Wish I had that much hair.

Your scarf looks so bright and cheery and happy. Just like you! My hubby wants to get Pygmy goats and our boys want chickens, both of which are considered exotic let's in Seattle. So, we may be farmers in the city!

I totally do that to my lists! I love crossing things off ... even if a few of the other items hang around for far too long!

Fashionography. said...

The blue of the dress and the blues in the scarf look so good together! I totally agree with the list idea; it makes me feel like I've done so much when I cross off easy items. :)
