you could be a farmer in those clothes

when we visited stephen's family in tulsa over thanksgiving, i was very excited that his mom wanted to send us home with fresh eggs from her chickens.  i even got to get eggs out of the coop after they'd laid some! i'm not a country girl by any means, but i am definitely one for the freshest of the fresh and cruelty-free products. here are some fun shots from that adventure:




all in all, we went home with nearly two dozen eggs (she'd been collecting/saving them for us for a little while). how nice would it be just to hop in your back yard and have fresh eggs?? so fun.

bonus points if you know where this post title is from :)

Ohhh fresh eggs may be my biggest crush in the world - even more than cheese! I hear it's actually pretty easy to raise chickens, you've just got to check with your county's laws concerning it (for example, in Portland, OR, you're only allowed to have 2 max). One day when I'm done living in big cities, I'll have my chickens...
And the title is on the tip of my tongue! I've got the voice in my head and everything! Ah!
