She’s Country

It’s so nice to be back online and in touch with the rest of the world.  The past couple of days has truly been a whirlwind! I am ready for things to slow down but that is not going to happen anytime soon.  I am still slowly unpacking, almost everything is in order.  For instance, this weekend I finally found two king size pillows for my new bedding.  You would be surprised at how tricky it is to find the right one.


I had the chance to work at the Central District Livestock Show that was held here in Shawnee.  I was out of the office all day Friday working the goat show and had a blast doing it.  It is amazing to me to work with kids who are so passionate about their livestock project.  It really makes my heart feel all warm and fuzzy because I remember the passion that I had at that age.  It is important that these youth be ambassadors for agriculture, we have to teach and tell them the right information so they are not mislead.  After I wrapped up at the stock show, I went to Starbucks to clear my mind, relax, and read.  It was humorous because I was in “county” clothes and the baristas almost didn’t recognize me, totally priceless!


I am almost finished with this book! 

Pretty sure I was on a seven-year-olds dream date this weekend—shopping at the mall with a break for a warm chocolate chip cookie and dippin’ dots.  Some things will never change…There is nothing wrong with staying true to who you are.  Only you know who the real you is deep down inside.  The true Lindsey (channeling my inner child), will never stop believing that I am a Disney princess.  I know it might be a little ridiculous and dramatic, but that is just me—love it or leave it.



  1. I think it is awesome that you have two different sides of your life to pull from. I feel the same way, especially when I was in junior high and high school. I was a ballerina for 13 years, and showed cattle every weekend I wasn't dancing.

  2. The real world needs a good dose of agriculture reality. There are pretty, young, smart women who are passionate about agriculture. Breaking stereotypes/molds are hard to do. I love that you have a similar story, it just makes my point that much stronger!

  3. love this post! it's very interesting to read about this aspect of your life :) and i'm a little jealous about the dippin' dots ;)

  4. Why thank you! I kind of live a Hannah Montana life so to speak split between country/city life! The dippin' dots served as the pick me up I have been searching for, soooo good!
