  1. I LOVE IT!!! I knew you could do it. I too love Mason jars, big sunglasses. I so think it is neat that first owned a CJ-7 Jeep. Awesome! And, your smells, so adorable. I would have never guessed you were 31. NEVER! I also have freckles in the same place...but not on my torso. My Nana calls them Sun Kisses. :) And, I am by far not a lake swimmer. I love to go there, take pictures and take a boat ride, but the inside is a bit creepy.

    I am so glad you did it. :) It took me a while too.


    P.S. I want you to come on vacation to SC! :)

  2. Awwww...it was nice getting to know you better! I bet you are even neater in person! :)

  3. I love this post!! My favorite part is that you can't wait for Mason to join FFA, I'm excited for M to join also!! I'm hoping she follows in my footsteps and adores showing and rodeoing as much as I did!

    I'm not sure why I wasn't following your blog before, but I am now! Hope y'all had a great Monday!

  4. Love this post, I think every blogger tagged or not should do a post like this, that way you get to know who is behind all those awesome posts!
    I love your new banner, btw! so cute!
    I don't blog on the weekends either, I'm too busy snapping pictures for my 'week in the iphone' posts & hanging out with my little buddy! I wish I had blog friends near me, none of my non-blog friends understand how truly rewarding blogging can be! =]

  5. What a great post.....and I learned so much!!!! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love learning new things about my URL friends! We have a lot in common :)

  7. great post! i love texas country music too :)
