Barn Chicks Who Blog- Interview with Cathryn from Farmer's Trophy Wife

I can't wait to share this interview with you. I stumbled on the blog, Farmer's Trophy Wife, which is written by the lovely Cathryn. Her blog is such fun to visit. She finds lots of wonderful things to wear. There is plenty of "eye candy" photos of really neat things for your house. Check out the DIY section if you're handy with tools and like to make things for your home. I would love to take Cathryn shopping and have her help me pick out a new wardrobe. This girl has style! Read on, my friends.

1. Please tell us about your farm.
My husband and I farm with his Aunt and Uncle and his parents, we are the third generation on this farm. We have a mixed cattle and grain operation and are out in the middle of Alberta, Canada.

5. What did you do before you married a farmer?
I grew up on a mixed farm and was in my first year of my Nursing degree when I met him.

6. What are some of your hobbies?
Back before kids, my hobbies where riding, skiing, reading and traveling. Now...blogging. Not too much time for anything else...someday when the kids are big we will get out and do all the stuff we used to do!

7.Do you cook, garden, or can?
LOL...ummm. Can I skip this question?! I  am not that great of a cook or gardener. It's actually poor family.

8. What inspired you to blog?
It started when my second baby was born, I wanted something to do that wasn't about night feeds or dirty diapers and I kinda fell into it. I love it and have had fun ever since!

9. What's  the best part of living in the country?
The space, the community and raising our kids the "old fashioned" way...they catch frogs and howl at the coyotes on a regular basis!

10. How do feel about raising those precious little ones on a farm?
Love it. They are my wild little farm kids, covered in dirt, scratches and have space to run and yell. Best way to raise a family I think!
