Taggity Tag Tagaroo!


I was tagged this past week by two very sweet and lovely ladies, Eldarwen and Amber ( who have quite awesomely splendid blogs by the way that you should go visit)and I have to admit that usually I forgot to ever do these, or I procrastinate on them, or I just don't do them... I get impatient, or I say I don't have time, or I get bored with them, .... I'm not quite sure why.... ..But! Today is Monday... and I am feeling extra chipper at the moment ( perhaps it's the granola bar I just scarfed down, oh I heart my granola!)
Anywho, I am actually going to do one of these! I am turning over a new leaf folks! So bare with me...and I do think this will be quite interesting and fun =]

1. High heels or boots? gahh, would you be surprise to hear from a 6ft tall lady that I love to put on a pair of cute heels and teeter totter around? 'tis true, I have a thing for cute shoes, and for some reason am always drawn towards the ones that ironically have the 2in or more heels. ( and I'm such a clutz yet I still wear them!!) they tell me that a girl my height doesn't NEED to wear heels, " umm, excuse me? I can't hear you all the way up here, sorry, but I'm not gonna be left out!" but in the end my all time favorite is my well worn and comfy pair of riding boots. yeesss I even wear them when i am not riding.

2. What time did you get up this morning? well, I'm usually am up by 6:15am to get ready for class, make sure I eat something, and do a little reading or list making... but my brain was holding on so tight to the weekend sleepiness and I think I hit the snooze button twice... and didn't get up intil 6:45am(still made it to class on time!). I can be a night owl or a morning person no prob, although I tend to be more of a morning person ( no hatin'!)

4. What is your name? Rachel, Rache-, Ra-kell, Tall girl, and so forth. ha ha

5. What is your favorite TV show? hmm, I kinda breeze thru tv and watch whatever I find amusing that evening, or whatever fits my mood. Sometimes it's Criminal Minds, but as of late it's been a lot of The Office. Michael Scott, Jim, and Dwight. bah ha.

6. What do you usually have for breakfast? oatmeal( I experiment with it all the time by adding different things, like fruit, chocolate, honey, etc) and my 2nd fav is peanut butter/honey on an english muffin or nutella on toast.

12. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be? gah! such dreams in this department!!! It's a three way tie between France, Ireland, and Rome

It all depends on the situations, I am a neat freak and highly organized when it comes to my job and career as an equestrian, and then at home I can sometimes be a real slob. But you will be glad to know that last week I completely organized my room and car and got rid of lots of useless things( off to goodwill!).. so I'm getting better on that end =]
