You Only Know Me To Be...

the vintagey, recipe loving, home beautifying, crafty, lover of all things pretty but I do have another side that you might be surprised to know about. It's WAY less known but I'm also:

1. A PBR {Professional Bull Rider} fanatic. It's by far my favorite sport and I follow it the entire season. As I type I'm making a mental note to ask my Mama if she'll watch my kids so that I can go to the Fresno Invitational in March {go J.B. Mauney!}.

2. I played on a co-ed softball team for a few years and can hit a ball like there's no tomorrow. I'm scheduled to start again this spring on my brother in laws team.

3. Wanna go bowling? I'll pick up and go anytime. LOVE IT. High fives and all.

4. I love going to the gun range on my lunch hour with my boss of almost 18 years and I'm a pretty good shot.

5. I can tie my own flies for fly fishing.

I could go on but I'll stop there before you start picturing me crushing beer cans with my forehead {which I don't do by the way}.

Wow! I'm impressed! I love a good "tomboy" and sporty girl....my dd (10yo) can gravitate a lot towards "boy" oriented toys....she told the bagger at the supermarket today that for Christmas she got a tool kit! Well, she did but I was surprised that was the first thing that came to her mind...LOL.
I love your blog and found you after reading the new Somerset Life...congratulations, and I'll have fun looking around your blog some more if you don't mind....:)

Hi Lisa,

Well you might be surprised to know that I'm not surprised at all! In my 50 years I've found that some of the most creative people, are the most, as I call them "well rounded" individuals. I think we bring our varied interests and experiences into our life and especially our art. I grew up very much a tomboy, but now I have the opportunity to express my feminine side. I have a mate in life now that totally accepts every aspect of my life.........he even knows I can woodwork, construct, ect., better than he can, and he secretly loves it. You go girl!

Big Hugs,
Meri

Wow I must say I am a little surprised. Bull riding, really? I love bowling... got my own shoes but my ball is back in Hawaii. Makes me sound like i'm good at it, but I really am not. I am all for the high-fives though. Sounds just like us when we bowl. My husband wants to take me to a shooting range. Gotta say I don't trust either of us. Haha. I hit a softball once and I was so happy. Of course my eyes were closed when the ball came towards me. Still made contact though.

OMG..... I am tickled picker than the boots I wear. As I read this I am sitting at my desk cracking up at the thought of you smashing beer cans with your head. Long curly hair wasted. Lol I know u to well that you dont drink like that. I do know you bowl and is down for a good softball game. But a bull rider watcher. Well now that I think about it. I guess it would be fun. Do they go shirtless? Can u image a sweaty stomach with abs a steel clutching on for dear life. Trying not to fall or get stepped on by a bull. Anyhoo Cowboys are hot. And yes I can so see you at the gun range letting off shots (everyone take cover)LOL
