15 random things about me :)

So, I'm copycatting a good friend of mine and posting 15 random things you may not know about me. If you know anything else, post it in a comment!

1. I love horses...big horses most of all, but little horses are awesome, too :)

2. My whole life, I have had people guess that I am older than I am because I am tall.

3. Almost every time we are in a store, someone comes up to me and says, "Wow...you're tall." I always want to say, "Wow...you're observant."

4. I cannot walk outside without wearing sunglasses...or "shades," as my teasing friends call them.

5. I have this weird, unnatural fear of loud or unexpected noises...such as opening those Pillsbury cans of biscuits *shudder*, or balloons popping, or fireworks, or guns... :) And I have friends that love to take advantage of this fear!!

6. The first "big" book I read was The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe when I was 3 years old.

7. I was an obnoxious toddler. I would literally sit down on our kitchen floor and pound my head on the tile because I would get so angry.

8. I have always been better friends with guys than with girls

9. My favorite verse is Psalm 139:14 "I will praise You for I am wonderfully and fearfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well."

10. I have a huge aversion to rap/rock music. A huge aversion. Absolutely cannot stand it.

11. I love the story of Joseph!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12. I have ridden every discipline of horse except for a cutter.

13.When I laugh really hard, I wrinkle my nose, and I've done it since I was a baby.

14. I am a dingbat and a klutz....One of those people who may be a brunette, but acts like a blonde. If someone in our family is going to fall down the stairs or say something ridiculous, it's going to be me :)

15. If I get into any sort of physical fight/wrestle/sword-fight/water-war, I am a wimp. I'm ridiculously passive and easy to intimidate ;)

Senior Pictures

We have decided that I am going to "officially" graduate this year! I am really excited, but the problem was that we decided on Saturday, and I have to send everything in by Wednesday...oops.

So, we did some "senior pictures" on Saturday. It was pretty funny because I was trying to pose and tell the girls what to do with the camera. Here's a sample of what happened...

Me: Make sure the focus is on my face and not my shirt.
Anna: I can't get it focusing right!
Jessie: Give the camera to me.
Jessie: I can't get the angles right.
Anna: Give the camera to me.

And so it went :) Here are the best ones. I am having troubles deciding which is the best *one* to send in to AFHE...any of them jump out at you as the best? If you click on them, they will blow up to full size.


 Okay...so on this picture, I didn't realize my jeans were tucked into my boots. I had been taking pictures of Jessie, and in order to get this one shot that I wanted, I had to stand in a ditch full of very deep sticky mud. So the solution was simple. Tuck jeans into boots and the boots can handle the mud...but then I forgot to un-tuck them. Oh well. Gotta love a country girl!

Solve this riddle...

"A sick young man named Ron drove up to a park in a coach. He decided to make a meal of Oscar Myers, but while doing so, seared his finger and screamed "Eeeeiiioooo." In agony, he rolled down the green dales covered with grass. While laying there, a band of hoods snuck up on him. His marred finger was useless as he fought, but the right prevailed and he rolled his foes up into a pile."

What can you get out of this? Comment if you have any clue what we're talking about!

Yes, more pictures :)

I know that I'm always putting pictures on here, but I just have so much fun and feel like I have to share them or I'll go crazy!!

So, Goldie has been having puppies and I've been up with her since midnight. That has given me lots of time to edit pictures! I've been reading and reading on this wonderful photography site www.ilovephotography.com, and have learned so much. Here are some fun before and afters.


These are two that I took at the Sun Circuit show last Sunday. This horse is a multi-million dollar winner!! Probably the best working cow horse in the country right now.
