my personality...

You Are An ISTJ

The Duty Fulfiller

You are responsible, reliable, and hardworking - you get the job done.

You prefer productive hobbies, like woodworking or knittings.

Quiet and serious, you are well prepared for whatever life hands you.

Conservative and down-to-earth, you hardly ever do anything crazy.

In love, you are loyal and honest. If you commit yourself to someone, then you're fully committed.

For you, love is something that happens naturally. And you don't need romantic gestures to feel loved.

At work, you remember details well and are happy to take on any responsibility.

You would make a great business executive, accountant, or lawyer.

How you see yourself: Decisive, stable, and dependable

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, conservative, and egotistical

well, we had a horse......

Monday FIL came home with a beautiful horse named HOT ROD. (Lauren named him Tom) he was a gift to all the grand-girls since all of them love horses, but i think Lauren worked her charm on him....

he was really too tall and he was stubborn as a mule. i liked his personality. he was gentle as long as the reins were not on. so he is to call the guy back today for selling him a stubborn horse. and see about getting another one that we can ride.

Running with the Pigs

omg! i love piggy, collect them and they are all over my house. but since saturday night i will never be able to look at my piggy's the same.....

on the way back to the store from eating at a bbq joint we decided to go and take pictures with these pigs that are in this field next to the interstate. then we see this sign that says private property no trespassing....oh no we are going to get in trouble....so Lori jack decides to jump the gate and run for the pigs, Ashley s is tripping out about going to jail should the cops come, and Patti is laughing her ass off at Lori "porking" the pig..... oh my gawd, we all about peed in our pants. then Patti, Monika and i dared to run out there and give it a go......then Patti takes off like a bat outta hell toward the truck and she is a track star.....hauling ass! all i can here is christy yelling "look at patti run" so funny.

so were all get back to the store and amynnn tells us that it's okay to take pictures with the pigs....so much for that adventure, but so funny and fun, i WILL NEVER forget the day we

ran with the pigs

weekend part 2 (christy and Jim)

friends? naw i would say long lost family! jim and christy were awesome. what a great pair of jokers. i was scared to meet christy and nervous about the "GUNS", but they made me well welcome and so nice...christy popped my bra after only a few minutes at the store, jim signed my ball jacket and i got flashed on the first night....but they will deny....but i did.... and monika "mom" gave me the ad of jim and got him to sign it....way cool!
one day florida will be visited by Lori #1 and i will have to make a trip to see my new buddies. i love you two very much. and i miss y'all dearly

weekend part 1


lorijack and i drove up to Dallas friday morning! great drive up there! we even drove by texas stadium, but troy was not there...LMAO...

then to the store: BLOWN AWAY! totally, totally wonderful to see all the ladies from last year and all the new ones....then kristin stock is sitting her ass right there and i did not see her! i was shocked.

then i got to finally meet my Mom and my Auntie Cheri....love them two ladies....they rocked my world.

seeing everyone was over whelming. i was in awe at the emotions i was feeling.

we picked up Oscar at the airport friday night and that was a chore in it self. leslie rode with us and i was so nice to meet and chat with her. then i had to keep kristin a secret from oscar till we got back to the store...that was a chore in it self.

awesome to see those two together.
