Just Bein a (c)Hick

So the other day, we decided to embrace Idaho. After a few trips to Horkley's, bridge jumping and swimming in the river, we made our way over to the demolition derby. But not before a quick wardrobe change. We wanted to fit in with the locals.

I'm glad to report that we did catch a father/son mullet combo. I unfortunately did not capture it on film.

Too bad you can't tell that my shirt is a half shirt, or see my cowboy boots. Eat your heart out Vogue.

To complete the night, we finished at a bonfire.... I think we did it.


What Kind of Blogger am I?

So here it is... what you've all been waiting for... POST #2! What is it that has overwhelmed me to come out of the blogstalking closet? MATES OF STATE! That's who!

I just LOVE this duo/band/whatever you want to call them. You know how sometimes you can know about a band for a while, and not think much of them, then suddenly you hear a song that you've heard a million times and BAM! You're in band-love. Well here I am. Infatuated with these two, wishing I could somehow weasel my way into their marriage so that I could join their band.

I just love that they are married. I think that is what draws me to them the most. I mean, you hear these romantic songs, and you imagine them being about a real person, but you know their music is REAL because they are about each other. I love it.

Here they are at Sasquatch, where I first discovered them. Now that I know a little more about them, I wish I could go back and sing along.... Just look at them! They are BOTH singing with their eyes closed. They mean it.

So now what category is this? Would music be considered my spouse/kids/dog since I love it more than anything? Or is this Blog-Vomit where my emotions have overwhelmed me, and my pen cannot fill my diary fast enough? I guess we'll just have to see what I come up with next...


Reasons People Blog

1. They are so emotional that their diaries cannot hold all their feelings so they turn to the unlimited storage of the world wide web.

2. They LOVE their spouse/kids/dog so much that it's come to be their favorite topic and their friends have stopped faining interest.

3. They're just showing off their sweet skillz... armature novelists, photographers, world travelers and comedians alike

4. They want to rub in how much weight they are losing to all the other Weight Watching hopefuls

5. They use it strictly for blogstalking. (They usually only have 1 post)

6. They really just have something to say

So why have I jumped onto this crazy bloggin train? I'm not quite sure, I guess we'll just have to wait and find out together.
