2 Truths, 1 Lie.... Revealed


This week I've had a fun time getting to know several bloggers in a new way through the Let's Get Acquainted linky. I think I read more posts than I commented on. Too many bloggers out there are way better at this game than I am!

I should have known better than to use the word "never" in a clue :)

Here's a little more background:

1. I grew up in a very small town in northwest Kansas. It had a population of 150 (if you counted all the cats, cows, chickens, and goats in the city limits). The town has a claim of fame of being "The goose capital of Kansas." The town sits near a National Wildlife Refuge.

100% true! My graduating class was the largest before consolidating, there were 15 of us (public school). We had a few smaller businesses in town (library/city office, cafe, repair shop, post office, church.) It was 15 miles to the nearest grocery store  that and more than one aisle and the nearest stoplight. To get to McDonald's, Walmart, or a mall was at least another hour ( a much better mall was an hour and a half to two hours away.)

2. Although my dad is a game warden (think cop for wild game, stopping poachers, etc.), and I have helped and passed my hunter safety course I have never been hunting. I enjoy shooting handguns, targets, clay pigeons, and fishing, but I just haven't went hunting.

Almost an untruth, but I have been hunting before. Nothing to show for it, though; I'm much better at fishing. I think I scare all of birds and game away. I haven't seen much when I've been out. My Dad is still the local game warden. He does a great program for kids and adults showing skins and skulls of native Kansas animals. I grew up around that, I'm just not a very avid hunter; my husband is, so I may make it out more. Maybe.

3. I love my husband dearly, but in order to appease my father (you need a regular degree before a Mrs. degree) the two of us were engaged for 599 days.  While being engaged is fun, and there is lots of planning, 599 days is just a whole lot of waiting!

Ugh, I wish this was a lie. Longest 599 days of. my. life! As an only child, I felt that I needed to appease my father. Tony was my only boyfriend. We dated shortly after I started college, almost 2 years into dating we were engaged, and another year and a half plus till we were married. So even though, we haven't quite been married for 9 months yet, it still feels like we've been together forever (in a good way.) The day of the wedding (which was the best day of my life to date!) one of my friends was the one who had figured out (or Googled) the length of my engagement, told me engagements expire after 600 days, so I better get down the aisle while I still could, haha.

There you go! I'm looking forward to finding out if my gut was right on other posts.... be sure to link up on Sunday for another round of Let's Get Acquainted!

  2. Wow! I thought I grew up in a small town! The town next to ours does have about 15 in a graduating class but they are tuitioning to another high school next year due to their size. It is a 30 min. drive to WalMart or any larger stores. An hour? Wow! I do love my small town though:)
