The Southern Girl in Me

Today of the 30 Days is Whatever Tickles My Fancy!  So many people would be shocked if they knew this about me.  In fact, I think I was pretty shocked too!  David is a HUGE hunter.  I mean we are from Arkansas, it is what people do!  HE has always wanted to take me hunting and I was like yeah, ok, whatever about it.  Getting up in the wee hours of the morning is not my thing.

This past Thanksgiving, my parents told us they would keep the kids for us and we could go spend the night at the deer camp.  I got pretty excited about it.  Ok, maybe it was a night away with David more than anything.  So David gets all excited about taking me hunting and decides that I need to go shoot my Dad's gun, just in case. about a RUSH when I shot the gun!  I was hooked and I was so excited about going hunting.

That night was a blast.  We made s'mores over the camp fire and talked about everything and nothing at all!  WE got up the next morning and before the sun was even out a doe walked up.  As soon as the sun was up, I shot and had my first kill.

I am so sorry if you are not a hunter.  I do not mean any disrespect, but it is for the protection of your car!  

What is something that would surprise someone about you?

  1. I guess what people would not guess abt me is that I am a flower child/hippie/earth mother. I keep the principles in hand even though I gave up the lifestyle in the 70's - it is the "true" me

  2. How fun! I've never been hunting...not really my thing...but I do enjoy going shooting.

  3. Awesome!! What a great opportunity to do something together =) And it totally gives you an edge ;-)

  4. im not up for hunting, flyboy would be, but I'm all about four wheeling and I saw yours in the back of the pic!

    And thats probably something people would be surprised about : )

  5. Ok this is where we part our Southern ways! I have to say that I'm so glad that JM is not into hunting! I don't have anything against those who do, btw! :)

  6. LOL, I grew up in a hunting community. Our meals were pretty much what my dad could hunt. Venison, squirrel, duck, rabbit, etc.


Thanks for stopping by!!!
