Graduation, Wedding , and Remodel, OH MY!

I wasn’t sure what to write about for my second post. Misha went straight for crafting. She is the Queen of crafts. If I need something, I can always count on her. (In fact, she will be here at the end of May to help me with a graduation party.

I think I will just give you a little of what’s gong on here at the Perkins’ Ranch.




In the midst of getting ready for hay season and watching calves being born, we are doing a major renovation on our kitchen and living room. I will share more about the remodel when it is done. 😉

During the remodeling process, I have had 2 birthday parties, Easter, and a couple of dinners I hosted. Each time I prayed for good weather, so we could eat out by the pool.

And now I’m planning a graduation party for our middle child Belvy. Misha and I went to Pinterest for ideas. We decided on a movie theme with an emphasis on super heroes. Belvy is a super hero to me. We adopted him from Haiti when he was 13 but he didn’t get to come to America until he was 16 1/2. He worked so hard to learn the English language. He has worked hard in school. Even though he is an older graduate (21), he is so proud of graduating high school and going on to college. I want this party to be special. I can’t wait to share this party with y’all. Until then check out the graduation ideas we posted on pinterest.

Oh and Big News! My oldest is getting married. Misha and I have been shopping and pinning for this wedding. Ashley will be getting married in October on the Ranch. If any of y’all have done a wedding at your home, backyard, or tent wedding, I would love to see pics and get ideas. I have a few things I’m worried about. Restrooms, parking and the amount of people. We hired a wedding planner, KC with Cloud creative events. So that has helped with some of my concerns. So far the guest list has stopped at 216. I was thinking small and intimate but I forgot how many people Ashley knows! 🤦‍♀️

The theme of the wedding is BoHo. The ceremony will be outside using hay bales and blankets. (Misha and I picked up a good dozen or so blankets at Antique week in Roundtop. If you have never been, you should go. It is so much fun and lots of junkin’!) The reception is in a clear roof tent, so we can see the stars. Again, I’m praying for good weather.

I’ll keep ya’ll updated as we plan for this big event. Until then check out our pins. We have a few boards done on wedding planning.

We are always on the go here on the Ranch. You never know what we will be doing; working cattle, parties, remodels. I could always use help with ideas for parties. So please share any you have for the graduation party coming up, or for the wedding. I would love to hear from y’all.
