The Influences of a Country Girl
Just when you thought you knew me I go and flip the script on you! Since the “big move”, I have made 2 life altering changes and they stem directly from being reunited with my very COUNTRY sister.
Life Altering Change #1:
I LOVE COUNTRY MUSIC! Shocking right?! I would have never believed it either. It all started when she begged me to learn a line dance to Copperhead Road for her wedding reception. I was like what?! You can actually shake your booty to country music? Count me in! My addiction grew even stronger when we went to a country western bar for her bachelorette party! There I was surrounded by the reddest of rednecks, having a great time and wishing that I owned a pair of cowgirl boots to line dance in. I was completely sold when I heard the song “On My Front Porch Looking In” by Lonestar. There is a verse that was written for my life specifically:
My blessings are in front of me
It’s not about the land
I’ll never beat the view
From my front porch looking in
There’s a carrot top who can barely walk
With a sippy cup of milk
A little blue eyed blonde with shoes on wrong
‘Cause she likes to dress herself
That’s my life! If everyone listened to country music, the world would be a sweeter place…redder, but definitely sweeter!
Life Altering Change #2:
PESCETARIANISM defined by Wikipedia, is the practice of a diet that includes seafood, vegetables, fruits, nuts, some egg and some dairy. This is what I am, and once again it is my sister’s fault.
My pescetarian diet began with the purchase of 6 adorable Road Island Red chicks. They are the most adorable little things I have ever seen and are oddly the golden color of a freshly fried chicken nugget. I didn’t realize that I would no longer be eating chicken, until the next day when my daughter asked for chicken nuggets and I spontaneously threw up in my mouth. The eversion to meat only continued to worsen with an article I read the same day that really got me thinking about the food industry and their practices: WARNING if you have a sensitive stomach you may want to skip this article- http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,545540,00.html?test=latestnews .
Now if they could only find a way to make ice cream repulsive!
