I have been tagged by this lady over here. Who is actually one of my favorite bloggers I follow. If you haven't taken a look at her blog or you aren't following, you probably should be. She's smart, she runs, she bikes, and she has a lot of interesting things to say.
So the "rules" of this tag are that I need to share 7 random things about myself and then tag 15 other bloggers to participate....hmmm...do I know 15 other bloggers? Regardless here are 7 things that make me versatile...or perhaps you did not know about me....
(It's Friday here at work, and I have nothing better to do :))
I have horses....well ponies to be exact. YES ponies..welsh ponies. (When I moved here to TX and first met my husband he thought I was just some hoity-toity California girl who cutely called her horses ponies...that was until he actually saw them.)
When I lived in California I showed my ponies on the welsh pony show circuit. One weekend a month my mother and I would load up our trailer and head to a show. We would do halter classes, which are judged on the pony's confirmation. And we would do hunter and under saddle classes as well. I almost exclusively rode English. Though once in awhile on a trail ride I would ride in a western saddle.
Since moving to TX I have not showed and I barely ride. I had 5 ponies total, but I am now down to the 2 brown one's you see in the pic above. They are pretty much hay burners at the moment. But I love them and plan on having them be our kid's ponies in the coming years. I do miss showing and riding with my mother though. She instilled a love of horses in me at a very young age and I will always be thankful.
I love thrifting, craigslist, and ebay! Not only do I buy and resell stuff on craigslist. But this is also where I get most of my kid's toys, clothes, and shoes. I love getting a deal and finding cool things. I am by no means a junk collector though.
I just started running races. Last fall was my first 5K and since I have been hooked! I have run on and off since high school but it was always for the pure enjoyment of running. No, I wasn't in track in high school or anything like that. I have always just LOVED running. And now I am loving to race and make goals for myself!
Here I am at my first 5K. It was a small race in my small town and I actually won it :) Now you may say there wasn't much competition....and you are right there weren't tons of runners. BUT, there was a girl at this race who gave me a run for my money and really pushed me so it wasn't an easy race.
I work for a golf company, and I don't play golf. Nor do I want to. But I know a lot about golf club specifications if you have ever have any questions. (I have HORRIBLE eye-ball-hand coordination!!)
I spent 6 years living on the north shore of Kauai when I was growing up. Wainiha valley is the place I called home. No kidding this is what my view was every day. Kauai is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and it will always hold a special place in my heart.
I went to Catholic school until 5th grade.
I own a Great Dane named Sookie...and a Chihuahua named Frankie
That's about it....anything random or versatile you want to share with me about yourself??
