Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post.

Nine Favorite Things | @hbharvest

{my favorite little girl…and her Red head}

Happy Sunday! It’s been a minute since I’ve written a Favorite’s post. I took last Sunday off to write my Korea in Photos Part 1 post (see part two here) and I’m excited to be back today with some new favorites!

I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all those who have commented, sent emails, or reached out via social media. While I can’t respond to all of the comments that have been left on the blog, please know that both myself and my parents have read all the incredible notes you left. My mom and dad spent literally hours going through them, and they could not take the smiles off their faces. Your kind words mean so much to my family and I, thank you, thank you!

Moving along…I returned home from Korea on Wednesday and have been slowly getting back into the swing of real life. It’s pretty crazy returning home to the states and seeing my brother literally everywhere I look…slightly getting tired of looking at his face. Just kidding…LOVE IT!

The majority of the Gerard clan is returning today, but my parents, brothers Malachi and Brendan and their girlfriends Caitlin and Lyndsie, along with Asher (of course) are all staying for Big Air. Since my parents are still gone, I have responsibility for all of the goats and chickens, plus two cats, and a very needy dog. Not going to lie, it’s a lot of work. You’d think the goats and chickens would be the most work, but guys, this dog is tiring. He’s super cute and sweet, but he and my cat do not get along. All day long it’s on and off fights between the two of them and it’s not fun. My ears hurt from the barking. The cat would be cool, but Merle (the dog) will just not let the cat be. UGH, if you have suggestions, let me know.

In other news, coming up on the blog this week I’ll have a new vegetarian soup, a tall stack of pancakes, a fun bagel sandwich, and more! So what are you guys looking forward to this coming week? And as always, if you’re meal planning today, check out favorite number nine.

1. Red and all his Interviews:

As you can tell, I couldn’t be prouder of my younger brother, so obviously I have to share some of the interviews he has done over the last few days. Not going to lie, each and every interview makes me one, laugh, and two, smile so hard. I shared my comments below.

Live with Ryan and Kelly…ahh hey, Red got to meet Kelly and Ryan. cool. cool!

Time…the story behind that hat and that F-bomb (which I personally loved). Kind of liked this one.

Jimmy Kimmel…this one was honestly my least favorite. Way too much focus on the beer consumption, when really that had nothing to do with his win.

CBS News…laughed at his response to the prom question, he is the cutest.

Extra Interview…pretty sure that’s NOT how Red got his name. checked with mom, it’s not.

Also…everyone is really blowing this whole went to bed late, woke up late thing way outta proportion. I mean, he is 17…just saying. Plus I don’t know what Red is talking about, he’s always the first one to bed (I would be too if I did what he does all day), and he’s usually up fairly early too.

2. The Half Baked Harvest Cookbook is back IN STOCK!
