Hello everyone! This blog is about me trying to make it as a “country girl” in Texas and trying to be the best wife and mom I can be.  That all starts with me finding out who I  really am (hence the “finding me, country style”). I’ve learned a lot about myself over the past almost six years since I’ve lived here, but I’m thrown something new almost everyday!  I have discovered a love for horses and the rodeo lifestyle, a love for baking, and an appreciation for every bit of condensation we can get out here!  The Lord has truly blessed our family with putting us in the country to raise our family and we couldn’t be more grateful… unfortunately it was my husband and I who chose more of a “fixer upper” that will NEVER end!  I love love love to bake, so you will see a lot of recipes on here that I’ve tried.  I will also talk about new task we have taken on around the house and our 20 acres, like I said… there’s always something to fix out here!

I have recently been introduced to the Paleo and Crossfit lifestyles so be ready to see some good healthy recipes and also some rants and raves about Crossfit! Crossfit has completely changed my life, even in this short time since I started (August 2013)! As far as going Paleo, I may not be 100% but I at least try to avoid Gluten and eat as much raw, natural, grass fed food as possible! I’m tired of diet pills, energy pills, and all the “do this, not that” trends for losing weight!  I just want myself and my family to be fit, active, happy, and healthy!  This blog is going to help hold me accountable to my goals and maybe it might reach out and help someone else as well!

This blog isn’t meant to be professional by any means! I misspell words, don’t use proper grammar sometimes, and get a little too excited or caught up with a post and could have the worlds longest run-on sentence (all of which is possible even with spell check)! Also I get distracted easily and have a lot of “sub stories” that might some what or not at all relate to the original story I was trying to tell.  IN OTHER WORDS, please bare with me through my SO not perfect writing skills!  I do hope that you take something positive from my post though, even if it is just a good laugh! 🙂  Thanks for checking out my blog and God bless!
