25 Things You Don’t Know About Me

Since ‘Fraidy Cat Eventing is turning this into an imprompu blog hop, I’m down!This fun guided list originated with L Williams over at Viva Carlos. I think it’s a fun way to learn new things about other bloggers!
The latest in a long line of strays that turned up at the house.
I'm happiest when.... I’m hanging out with horses or friends.
... Especially if .... I can do both of those things at the same time!
I've always wanted to.... visit the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.
My family and I.... put the fun in dysfunctional... but that’s okay!
I was a terrible.... basketball player. No hand-eye coordination. But I was an above average soccer player, so apparently my foot-eye coordination is fine?
DH, me, and my mom after getting soaked running a 5K.
My first job was.... waiting tables at a Waffle House. I was 16 and probably the only employee with all my teeth and a full head of hair. I made $BANK$ off truckers, haha.
I could probably eat Wendy’s french fries dipped in a chocolate Frosty every day.
I stole.... 3 pieces of candy from my coworkers candy bowl while she was out of the office last week ;)
I was born on the same day as.... Frank Lloyd Wright, Barbara Bush, Joan Rivers, Tim Berners-Lee (inventor of the World Wide Web!), and Kanye West. Thanks On This Day haha. 
Even though waiting tables was a pretty shitty job, it's where I met DH! (that is a story worthy of it's own blog post haha)
My all time favorite movie is.... the 2005 Pride & Prejudice with Kiera Knightley and Matthew McFayden. I saw it 12 times in theaters and I can quote probably the entire movie verbatim, haha.
I do a pretty mean.... face.
I'm still mad.... that Jeff Fisher stepped down as the Titans coach only to defect to the Rams.... UGH.
I always knew I wanted a.... horse. Or in my case, multiple horses!
I'm not afraid to.... laugh at myself. Self-deprecating humor is my schtick.
I make the best.... crash hot potatoes! Yum.
I have almost no.... free time. I need a body double.
I always cry when.... I’m sad or angry. The older I get the more ridiculously emotional I am. I never used to cry at movies or TV shows or anything, and now it happens all the time!
I'm (now) a.... mediocre dressage rider. But I think.... I’m going to change that. Or die trying, one of the two... lol. 
I spent 7 years.... living in the trailer we put on our land because we didn’t have time/$ to get our house built when we first bought the property. Hopefully we’ll be able to build before the 10 year mark..... :-/
I wish my folks.... had gotten me in a regular riding program as a kid. I am eons behind most of you!
At 5 I was deeply in love with.... my pets <3
I didn't get Cody until I was 8, but none of my pictures from age 5 are digital.... haha.
I believe if everyone.... was just a titch more tolerant and open-minded, the world would be a much friendlier place.
I can't stand.... narcissistic assholes who think they know everything when they are quite clearly morons.
Whenever the Big Bang Theory is on I’ll watch it. (It's playing right now incidentally haha)


  1. Ha I love self deprecating humor too. Great answers all around!

    1. Glad you liked it! I couldn't live up to your GIF usage so I stuck to photos 😋

  2. Also ridiculously emotional over here - and what are crash hot potatoes, I want some!

  3. Oh they're our favorite side dish! Here's the basic recipe -- http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/sidedishes/crash-hot-potatoes/

    I usually season with rosemary, thyme and basil (on top of salt/pepper/garlic). Yum! (Now I'm hungry haha)
