Tag- seven random and or weird facts

I was tagged by Debra....
Here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

OK here we go time to make up reveal 7 new random weird facts. But first if you are a new reader or just would like a refresher on all my fun facts go here, here, here, here, and here.
*1. Because we got one of these:I have become addicted to riding! I was not raised with 4-wheelers or dirt bikes, like my husband was, so I was hesitant about getting one, but now I can't wait to go out and ride! We have had it for nearly 2 weeks and we've been out 6 times! I'm getting more and more comfy on it and will soon post pictures of some of the places we ride!
*2. I love to watch drag races, motocross, desert races and basically any kind of racing {not so much the speed boats}. I have always loved racing. I think it would be totally cool to get to take a spin in a real race car!
When we lived in Phoenix, I went to my first live race! It was AWESOME! Troy went to school at UTI and they had a drag day. That was fun we saw the school's jet {loud} car and funny car. Then a few months later we went to a NHRA drag race! When we lived in Vegas, we would go to the desert races, those are fun too. While seriously pregnant with Savanna, we took Cody and went to a desert race with some friends. The guys went off to cruise the booths during a lull in the race. They were taking FOREVER.... turns out they ran into one of the racers and, well, he took Cody {my 3 1/2 yr old} for a ride.... yup strapped him in the racing seatbelt and hooked him up with a helmet ... and took off through the desert racing! He rode in a class 5 baja bug similar to this: We were invited to the pits where we picked up our very excited son! I swear he had a "kool-aid" smile for a week and all he could say was "whoo-hoo" for days!
*3. I love horses and horse back riding. I've owned 3 horses: a Morgan and 2 Arabians. In high school I trained a few horses with my neighbor who was a trainer. After we moved, my brother sold my horse, right before I found people who were willing to let me keep her out on their farm. :(With kids it is hard to go out and enjoy horses if you don't have them right there in your back yard. So we had to sell them. This is Page and colt Diamond-- the Arabians.*4. I went to cosmetology school when I was a senior. Although I didn't finish, I do enjoy giving a hair cut. The previous owners of our house had a beauty salon in the house.This is my hair cutting station.
*5. I love Orange Julius! Have it on a regular basis. Here you should have some too....
1 tray ice cubes or about 14 cubes
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 to 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 can frozen orange juice
about 1 1/2 cups milk
about 1 cup water
{also good with a banana}
put all items in a blender and mix using the ice crushing speed or similar speed*6. I like a good peanut-butter, mayo, and cheese sandwich! yum yum! :)

*7. I think it's good to dip saltines in a cup of hot chocolate!
And now.... I tag Latree, Mom2My6Kids, Because Wendi says so, Emy5, Kate, G. Parker & Serious

carrie & troy keiser said...

Cecily R said...

I never would have pegged you for a racin' gal, but that's great!!

Love the new things, even if you do eat weird sandwiches...(like I can talk, I like peanutbutter and pickles...) :)

Keeley said...

Mmmm, thank you for the Orange Julius recipe. Yum yum! =)

Andrea said...

When I was a kid, I loved peanut butter, pickle, and potato chip sandwiches, but I stopped eating them when my cousin died (she was my sandwich buddy).

I may have to try your sandwich!

Mom2My6Kids said...

Okay, we have A LOT in common. I used to think I loved horses but I have never had much experience with them so now I'm scared of them. I love to cut hair but I've never had any classes. I always wanted to go but when I saw my friends who got their degrees in cosmetology never marry, I headed a different direction. Now I'm married, they're not, I cut my own kids hair, they don't work in cosmetology at all anymore. The rest of this I could have written myself. Thanks for the tag. I'll get to it as soon as I come up with 7 random things worth talking about. Fun post!

Brooke said...

Fun to learn a bit more about you. I like grilled cheese sandwiches spread with mayo just before adding the cheese but I don't know if I'd be willing to try it with peanut butter, too! PB and banana sandwiches are my favorite!

Emy5 said...

Thanks for the Orange Julius recipe. I'll try it out! But how could you tag me when I'm still jet lagged? no fair! I loved your facts, though!!
