What makes you happy | Blogtober '14

What makes me happy? Good question... All while I was thinking about this question last night I was thinking of the Julie Andrews Song from the Sound of Music when she's thinking "These are a few of my favorite things." I tried long and hard to figure out how to get my happy things into those song lyrics. Then I started thinking of the "If you're happy and you know it" song and well.... that probably suites this better... happy versus favorite but either way I'll save you and just tell you my happy things which include but are not limited to:
  • My husband
  • The Tbug and Baby Girl
  • My family
  • New Pens (so trivial but....)
  • My camera (again trivial)
  • My new camera bag
  • Riding and showing horses
  • My dogs
  • Cooking
  • Blogging
  • Traveling
  • Snuggling on cold/cooler days
And there are a lot of other things... but here are just a few of my favorite... I mean happy things :)

Happy Sunday! Look at the beautiful sky that God painted for us this week! :)

Share A Secret About You | Blogtober '14

Shhhh don't tell anyone, but babies used to scare me! I'm not kidding. I am an only child and was the youngest on both sides of the family. My parents were a bit older when I was born so all their friends had older children so I wasn't raised around babies... I was raised around adults or older kids who wanted to be adults. So babies scared the crap out of me. I think I've only held like a handful or 2 of babies in my life prior to my own baby and she only adds 1 to that number. I'd never changed a diaper until I was in the hospital having baby girl... never been spit up on, pooped on by babies (animals yes)... babies scared the crap out of me.

There I told you my secret. Can we still be friends?

Procrastinating :)

Does that count? I swear, I am the worlds worst, maybe not the worst but I'm fairly bad about it.

When I asked my husband his first answer was Blogging and second kissing your husband. Think he was looking for a kiss? Don't worry I gave him one.

Baby girl says I'm an expert at feeding her and changing her diaper... ha!

My husband always claims that he's a Jack of all Trade, master of None. At work they used to tease me because I've dove into learning a bunch of different things. Maybe that's why he and I are so perfect for each other :)

I don't know... btw, let me point out that I wrote a guest post over at the Missouri Women Bloggers

Fall fashion | Blogtober '14

Truthfully when it comes to fashion at all I'm so far out of the loop it isn't even funny. I doubt anyone wants to dress like me especially right now while I'm in weird sizes trying to drop the last of this baby weight. I sure hope if I ever do that my favorite clothes I had still fit.... I'm scared!

So seasonal fashion means nothing to me either... I typically wear jeans all year round and boots. Now in the summer you may catch me in shorts or capri's but usually it's boots and jeans. So here's my style...

Favorite quote and why | Blogtober '14

Hmmm... my favorite quote. Are you read to laugh? My favorite quote comes from the movie "Fool's Rush In," with Matthew Perry and Salma Hayak.
You are everything I never knew I always wanted.
I watched this movie for the first time when I was a freshman in college. One of my dorm friends had it and she told me to watch it. In fact I think I watched it just after I'd been dumped, but I can't guarantee that one. Anyway she made a sign on her wall with this quote and I absolutely Loved it! So she printed me one off as well and it stuck on my wall every room I lived in since then until I was married.

Not only does the way that Matthew Perry delivers that speech (quote) make it awesome but the thing that it really implies/says makes it even better.

Funniest memory from childhood | Blogtober '14

So when I was a little kid my dad built a hay barn on our place. It had dirt floors and it sucked when it rained. So Dad finally decided to put concrete in the floors to avoid moldy bales that were against the dirt floor. The concrete truck came to pour the concrete and then dad and a couple others were going to spread it out. I went to help my dad spread it out with the boys and I had on my dad's mudboots. My boots got stuck in the concrete and I fell backwards on my butt in the concrete. All the guys laughed and I was embarrassed. I was only like 6 or 7 at the time. I ran to the house crying my eyes out.

Too bad I don't have any pictures of that...

Or how about the time we were in Duncan Oklahoma at a horse show and I was trying to qualify for the AQHA World Show.  This was the last weekend to be able to qualify so I had a lot riding on this.  I went out to show and won. When I heard that I won my dad said something to me and as I went to crawl off China (my horse) I fell off. Yup, it happened.
