a random late-night post.

I'm going to marry a cowboy.
and my children will be in 4H. and my daughters will show their cows, and enter their chickens, and rabbits, and horses, and so on. and my family will go to rodeos. honestly people, I just want to own a pair of legit cowboy boots {not the "cute" kind I have} and tuck my shirt into my jeans and wear a sparkly belt.

I know it {most definitely probably} won't happen. but a girl can dream, right?

I went to the county fair today with the youth program I work with and it was wonderful. Almost as wonderful as the valley last weekend. All the people walking around in their boots and cowboy hats. I'm not even joking {my parents think I'm insane} but I think I would adore living with a bunch of animals! I got used to waking up super early before seminary to do an hour or two of homework, anyway. It'd be great, I'm telling you. Now I just need to work on liking country music and get over my fear of horses.

I know this all sounds crazy, especially because I simply loved HUGE cities {well, I still do} but dang, there is something about all the small town stuff that is just wonderful.

today I got to pet sheep, and hold chickens, and watch a Beef and Dairy Show. Gosh. I think I have gone insane.


have a picture of a cute rabbit I saw.

In other news, tonight I went to the drive-in with all the seniors from orchestra! {here's that post} It was so fun getting together after not seeing each other for 2 months! We're all headed our different ways, but spending the last 10 years of our lives in orchestra... I'd say we're decent friends and I'm gonna miss all of our laughs. like, a lot.

Well... seeing as it's quite late. I think I may possibly go to bed. I hope you are all having a wonderful week and hopefully enjoying your own county fairs that may be going on!

  1. Hello! Stopping by from the friend hop! I'm so happy I found your blog!! It's awesome that you're a year older then me, and I haven't found anyone on here that is around my age! Lol. But I totally understand what you mean about having kids show for 4H, my kids will do the same thing & also be in FFA. You've gained a new follower!! :)

    xoxo, Hannah.
