Joyriding to Spokane for Farm Chicks!!

....let's get just one thing straight.

If you've been reading my blog at would know this is an annual event of pure girly fun.
My mom, sisters, and friends all gather up together and drive 7 or 8 hours to go to
Spokane County Washington Fairgrounds to attend this 2 day event.
it is our favorite find!
 What a fun joyride it is too....
We have SO much fun together laughing, telling good stories & generally making all kinds of trouble!
The part about the ride I like the most???
Flying down I-90 trying to pick out the rest of the Western Washingtonions who are also headed to the show.
We wave....we make handwritten signs that say:
"Honk if you love the Farm Chicks!"
the best part???
The group of ladies in the car/van next to us just rips into laughter and begins honking back!
It's a chance to live like a little teeny-bopper again.
Giggling & Goofing off with like minded girlfriends.
We always have tall tales to tell when we talk to folks about Farm Chicks.
( My favorite is the one about the couch that ate my mother.....but that is hallowed ground....if I tell you the story I may lose my inheritance ;)
To whom do we owe this great adventure time???
of course.
She is a sweet chick with all sorts of fun to share through her great show, blog, cookbooks & contributions to Country Living Magazine.
I'm pretty excited to meet
who's a pretty inspirational chick herself!
She contributes to Country Living Magazine as well as producing her own magazine called's so lovely!
Head on over to check it out!
to wrap this all up,
I hope you can join us at the show.
It will be great fun, and you won't want it to end....but when it does....
I hope you will have yourself some:
