Hey fellas I’m no cooking expert & I didn’t get decent over night. Alot of the things I cook are things I’ve never made before. Sometime they come out GREAT sometimes they come out like SHIT, but I noticed the trick to GETTING good at it is stepping in the kitchen and not being afraid of fucking up as well as being creative! I was also blessed to have learned a lot from my last relationship. So if you have a wife who is good at cooking it would be smart of you to learn! - - Fresh Atlantic Salmon marinated in raw unfiltered honey & brown sugar w/ a side of sautéed onions & mushrooms and some of my favorite red wine to wash it down right. - - #fitmencook #realfood #selfsufficient
My daughter is my biggest inspiration🦋 Being a great role model , and showing my daughter how to lead and not follow is my mission. Watching my baby girl grow from a toddler to a big girl has been the most amazing years of my life 💓 What's your inspiration? 🔑 #fashionista #womenwhohustle #bossbabe 👑 #survivor #dreamchasersworld #kingswearcrowns #dreamchasers #men #selfsufficient #womenempowerment #positivequotes #fashionista #womenwhohustle #bossbabe 👑 #survivor #dreamchasers #amandastapletonrealestate #womenwholift #queensfixeachotherscrowns 👑 #atlanta #illinois #menempoweringwomen #inspirationalquotes #beauty #mommyandme #daughters #miami
Your Value Does Not Decrease Based on Someone’s Inability to See Your Worth!
My aunt has the most beautiful rooster I have ever seen! He's hilarious, too... when you feed him dried meal worms, he jumps up like a puppy to grab them. And before you ask, the answer is yes: I named him. Such a handsome, masculine leader of the hen house deserves a name that holds up to his qualities. So, I'd like you to meet the family rooster: d'Artagnan. 😘🐓 . #farmlife #threemuskateers #rooster #animallover #rhodeislandred #sustainableliving #birdlovers
Making bone broth from left over chicken carcasses. All I do it put the bones in the slow cooker with water, salt, pepper, garlic and a splash of apple cider vinegar (helps extract the minerals) and switch it on low for about two days. You end up with the most beautiful soup base or a warm drink to sip that is very good for you. Sometimes I’ll add extra veggies like onions, carrot, celery, and even seaweed, but I didn’t have any of that this time! So easy to make and so good for you. 🥰😋 #bonebroth #soup #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #homesteading
The tomatoes in the raised beds are going well. The slugs haven't bothered them so that's good. I planted some more capsicums, celery and cucumbers to replace the ones the slugs ate and they survived the night. I got more slugs overnight, heaps actually, so if I keep the beer up the seedlings should make it. #slugs #beer #selfsufficient #kitchengarden #raisedgardenbeds #marinatedslugsmakefishsmile
When you have over 25 sunflowers on the one plant 😍🌻 those seeds were a good mistake 👏

A little after hours success. This is the older of my two 35 ton Buscyrus-Erie 30-B HD’s. She’s been sitting for 6 years with a leaky water pump, radiator and a few other things. Spent Friday and Saturday getting the motor running and trouble shooted some pneumatic control issues and she’s up and running. Now I’ve just gotta find something to lift. That shouldn’t be difficult. #melrosecontracting #cranemechanic #dieselmechanic #bossmechanic #bucyruserie #30 -B #cranes #dredging #dragline #clamshell #southold #oysterbay #manhassetbay #cummins #cumminspower #cranelife #craneoperator #selfsufficient #somebodysgottadoit
We moved into our house two years ago with a lot of ideas in mind. Last winter we painted some walls and trim. Now my husband is tackling cabinets! They were 1980s oak, and now I chose a brighter look! I'm hoping all tbe doors will be done and up by this weekend! I'll post a proper "after" pic without all the mess once its all done. #findyourpassion #stayathomemom #entrepreneurmoms #strongwomen #diy #selfsufficiency #selfsufficient #honeydolist
These are LOTION bars that I made! I initially made them and didn’t like how they came out so I re-melted them and got them to the consistency that I like and now I looooooove lotion bars! Never heard of them before deciding to make them. They have basically the same ingredients as chapstick (beeswax, coconut oil, Shea butter), just different amounts. Very easy to make. Made 12 of them and will be giving them away as gifts. . . . #homemade #diy #homestead #selfsufficient #lotion #lotionbars #allnatural #homemadegifts #prepper #preppers #prepping #seasonofgiving
This is my friend Becky, and can I just say, she is totally rocking this hat! 😍
Day 9 of #hollyjollyhomestead is “stockings”. I love these three Christmas stockings, particularly the one on top as my mum quilted it for my eldest son’s first Christmas- 16 years ago!!! They don’t get used as Santa stockings any more... (too small 😱) just as Chrissy decor! 🌲 🌲 #christmas2018 #christmasstockings #balancingrockfarm #countryliving #farmlife #countrylife #homestead #homesteading #growyourown #produceyourownfood #ruralliving #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #chooks #hens #chickens #vegies #vegiepatch #vegiegarden #vegetables #vegetablegarden #housecow #dairy #lowfoodmiles #homemade #homegrown #preserving #canning
I am seriously salivating here!😂 First pea shoots🌱 of the 2018-2019 Winter❄ Growing Challenge is ready to harvest, with the 2nd tray 🌱 moving under the lights. I have fenugreek sprouting 🌱 in the kitchen cupboard, broccoli sprouts 🌱 already packaged in the fridge, and today I purchased a pound of alfalfa seed for more sprouting 🌱 fun. #yahoofood !
I am not a gardener, I don’t really know much about plants. I know the basics sure, but I’ve never intentionally grown something. But I absolutely love the idea of growing my own food, being self sustainable. We were fortunate enough to have a number of olive trees (along with a bunch of fruit trees too) on our land, and it’s incredibly rewarding to pick the olives off the tree knowing that we will be able to eat them in the future! One day I’ll grow my own food from scratch, but for now I’ll assist the olive trees with their yearly harvest 😊 . . . . . #offgridliving #offgrid #offgridlife #permaculture #offthegrid #nature #vanlife #homesteading #vanlifeexplorers #vanlifediaries #selfsufficient #homeonwheels #adventureculture #rvlife #selfreliance #farmlife #getoutstayout #optoutside #offgridhomestead #travellifestyle #sustainableliving #foodforest #discovertheroad #nomad #simplelife #getoutside #adventuremobile #goexplore #vanlifeproject #olives
It’s not about what you post, it’s about what you DO! Nobody needs to know everything you think, you should be secure enough in yourself to not feel the need to justify things to the strangers on the internet. Actions speak louder than words. There’s a really nasty trick our brains play on us where we get stuck in the preparation, planning mentality and it causes us to never get anything done! I relate it to comparison culture where we are so busy trying to “keep up with the crowd” and appear successful, that we neglect the actual work it requires to put into ourselves. Nobody can accomplish your dreams but yourself, don’t get stuck in just dreaming about it, DO it. #selfcare #selflove #selftalk #selfsufficient #independence #innerpeace #motivation #motivationmonday #grace #pride #wellbeing #authenticity #success #growth #progress #health #wealth #happiness #wellbeing #crushingit #saving #hustle #grind #strength #confidence #beauty #elevacity #elepreneur #elevatepink
Are you as impressed as I am with these spring onions that are growing so happily ... just from root ends that usually end up in the compost heap? Even more so when you compare them to the ones I started from seed (spindly looking onions in a row on the right of the pic). 😊💚

We still have fresh apples! These are called 'Eijsdener klumpke', to the 'clumb' on the apple stalk. It is an old Dutch appletree variety #geldingwood #farmlife #farmlifebestlife #foodie #naturelover #nature #homesteading #spreadnaturelove 🍀💚 #selfsufficient
With Christmas right around the corner and lots of people brushing up on their baking skills, now is a great time to buy fresh potted herbs. Here's my life hack: repot living herbs in a shower caddy. It already has holes in it so the roots won't mold, AND it comes with suction cups so you can stick it right on a sunny window. I keep mine in front of the kitchen sink, so watering them is super easy! I have a good source of fresh herbs, and when they need "a haircut" I dehydrate the excess! #urbanhomesteading #homesteadingmama #homestead #homemaker #happystayathomemom #selfsufficient #useitupwearitoutmakeitdoordowithout #zerowaste #herbsaver #herbsandspices #soblessed
Early starts on cold mornings in beautiful locations puts Christmas dinner in the chiller
If you are asking yourselves why I look so excited here, it’s probably because I am. The reason being? I cut my own hair and I’m just excited that I can style my hair with out getting halfway through it and giving up and just throwing it up in a pony tail. Or getting so annoyed by sitting on on it. Or getting scared by it tickling my crack in the shower. Also thanks to @slenisnels for helping in the places I couldn’t reach. One thing I haven’t found here (in Vegas) is someone to help with regular trims. So I guess I will! 🤷🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🤪 3 or so inches gone, and not missing them one bit. Oh. I also did a review on the @badhabitbeauty #badhabitcrystalpalace highlighter palette which is live on my channel now. In bio. Happy Monday IG.
Tequila the Chihuahua giving her approval of my new little garden at the back door. Approval or wondering who the little dog in the garden is? 😆FYI The little poodle statue is a memorial to my little poodle boy Merlin who passed away 2 years ago now, miss him terribly. He would have loved this new adventure in the country 🐩❤️ #countrylifestyle #chihuahuaofinstagram #poodlesofinstagram #livingmydream #oldchurches #happiness #farmlife #countryhome #blessed #garden countrylife#countrystyle #livingmydream #country #farmhouse #happiness #farmlife #countryhome #blessed #countrylife #renovationproject #southerndownsandgranitebelt #sunshine #summer #homesweethome #hendonqld #farmhousestyle #selfsufficient #farmhousedecor #organic #farmhouserenovation #southerndownsandgranitebelt #sunshine #spring
