Don't Mess with Texas... Women & Lurkers De-lurk!!

First I wanna give a "Shout Out" to my PRESERVE GIRLS. I had a ton of fun Saturday and I really appreciate y'all thinking of me!!

----------------------------------

I finally got to relieve some stress this weekend. Sei took me to the shooting range so I could try out my new gun. I LOVED it. I told Sei anytime he wants to take me there as a date, I'm game. When we first got there I suddenly got really nervous and unsure of myself. I also felt like I was dressed wrong because I didn't have any camoflague on like the men there- lol. But by the end I was feeling a lot better. And I didn't suck too terribly bad, so that's always good too.... At least I hit the blue... And no Omar, I wasn't aiming for the crotch, but hey- I'll take it!!
The funniest thing I heard at the range?? A man was talking about how he had taken all the CHL classes so he could carry a concealed handgun if he paid his state fees. But there was no way he was gonna pay the state anything because "That's like payin' to go to church!" I ♥ Texas. video
-------------------------
ATTENTION LURKERS:
So, I was looking at my statcounter recently. I don't look at it often because I forget I have it. Anyway... there are a *TON of people lookin' at my blog that aren't commenting. I mean, I average around 15 comments a post, yet have like 200 more hits on my blog a day. So... if you are reading for the 1st time or lurking PLEASE COMMENT TODAY!!! LURKERS please DE-LURK!! You don't have to have a blog to comment, just sign in your name. Also, let me know how you ended up here at my blog and how long you've been visiting. YAY!

*and by "ton" I mean a couple hundred.... (slight exagerration haha!)

Glad you enjoyed the range. It looks like loads of fun!

I'm de-lurking today. Love the blog!

Camille said...

I went to a shooting range once with my cop friend. It was pretty fun! I felt very cool.
Just wanted you to know I'm still here even though I don't comment very often. Sorry! I'll try to be better!

Marion said...

Guns have always scared me but lately I have considered getting one. Don't you look all serious in the blue:)

Eric's Mommy said...

I'm a lurker, I've been reading your blog for over a year. I used to have one of my own.

Love this post too! I am a fellow gun owner and LOVE to shoot!

Kaitlyn said...

I am glad you came on Saturday! You are so funny, and it was fun getting to know you a little better. We need to "jam" together again soon!

The shooting range looks like fun, maybe I should go and get out some of my frustration. I'm thinking our next Girl's Night Out should be held at the shooting range, how fun would that be?!!

Heidi said...

I always crack up at your posts. I don't comment every time and I should cause I always have a comment in my mind. You inspired me to start my own blog. I will be better at commenting. You rock!

JustRandi said...

I think I'll be moving to Texas soon. I heart the Texas attitude!

Beckie said...

Holy crap! A couple "hundred"??!! Girl, your self esteem should be through the roof by now. You are awesome!
The shooting range looks fun, you should totally try the clay pigeons. Soooo much fun!

Tori :) said...

Jennifer- YAY! I"m glad you delurked. I will have to check out your blog.

Camille- You're busy growing a baby, don't worry about commenting. :)

Marion- LOL, it was a BYU jacket I had on. I was lookin' extra tough!

Eric's mommy- I do remember you stopping by a few times before. Glad to know you're still here. :)

Kaitlyn- Sat. was so much fun! I'm totally down with going to the range. lol

Heidi- Did I know you had a blog? YAY! I'll have to visit!

JustRandi- That man's comment seriously made my day! lol

Beckie- I think most of the people who stop by my blog are looking for something else. I get a ton of hits on a post where I used a pic from Superman. Go figure...

Anonymous said...

Hi Tori
I've commented a few times but check your blog everyday.
I love your blog, you are so funny.
You're very pretty, your husband is a hottie and you have beautiful kiddos.
Just a ole 'Alabama Grandmother':)

Shelby Lou said...

comment comment comment.

oh my you have a gun?!?! crazy lady. jk I love the earphone things.. totally stylish!! :D

Chernobyl said...

Hi, my name is Cheryl and today is my first time lurking on your blog. (..hi cheryl...)

omar said...

I've never been more afraid of you than I am right now.

Mrs. Organic said...

"it's like payin to go to church."

My favorite line ever.

Yvonne said...

I've never ever held a gun--I'm a chicken through and through ; )

Nathan said...

I came here because of NCS. You people are hilarious.

S said...

I am de-lurking even though I am terrible jealous that you had a virtual lunch at Costa Vida with Lauren today and I wasn't invited! Here via MasCowbell.
BTW my daughter called my cleavage a "butt" today. (I hang my head in shame)

S said...

Ps LOVE that video!

s--max said...

I'm guilty of being a lurker. I check in almost every day, & hardly ever comment. Of course you know this does not mean that I don't love you. It simply means that by the time I get caught up, I have nothing clever to say compared to the other comments already there. Or what I'm thinking has already been said. :)

Jo's Outlet said...

Hey I comment every once in a while. I'm the New Kids fan. Love the pic with you and the gun. Go guns!

Physcokity said...

Sorry to disappoint. There are times when I click over, but don't have time to finish reading a post so I have to come back later to comment. ;)

Physcokity said...

Kind of funny how you talk about your shooting prowess in the same post where you ask people to delurk ;) hehe

Maybe it's time to do another keyword search thing to see how people are getting over here. I always love those :D

Momma Magpie said...

You look very tough with a gun in your hand! :-)

I need a new one. I did a search on the gun I have and it was discontinued, the company that made them had all kinds of problems and went out of business. Wow. When I shot it a few years ago it kept jamming, despite that it was clean and oiled. Not good. We have lots of other guns in the house that I could use but they are all bad ass and I need something that's bad ass but petite and not intimidating. What did you get and is the kick on it pretty manageable. I mean, I want something that will stop 'em but that won't scare me to shoot, ya know??

I'm proud of you, Girl. You've got a good shot on ya!

Heffalump said...

I've commented many times, I just don't comment very often. But since you requested a de-lurk, here I am!
It doesn't count as lurking when you have met the person IRL right?

Tori :) said...

Alabama Gma- My loyal Grandma!!

Shelby Lou- You like those? I was laughing when I put them on- and the dorky glasses. The guns STILL sounded loud with them on!

Cheryl!!- Who do you jam with?? ;)

Omar- You should't mess with Texas women. It's a known fact.

Mrs. Organic- Was that not awesome?!?!

Yvonne- Do it! Do it!

Tori :) said...

Nathan- I saw you on my "follow" list and wonder where you came from. My online twin is awesome!

S- You're ALWAYS invited to Costa Vida!!

s--max- You don't have to comment. I know you're always there. Plus you send me funny texts.

Jo's Outlet- NKOTB and guns, can't get much better than that!!

Physcokitty- I totally should! I had forgotten about that!

Momma Magpie- I have a .38 special. That's what I was shooting in the video. It has kick but not too much for me to handle. I also shot a H&K P2000. LOVED it. I'm just not a fan of magazines, etc... I like to know without a doubt and just by looking that my gun is loaded or unloaded.

Heff!!!- How's the baby's booty? Did my blessing work?

Suzanne said...

Hey Tori, I'm here! :) How fun to go to the shooting range with Sei. D took me shooting for the first time last year, and even though I was a little intimidated, it really is so much fun! :D

Kimberly said...

Hey Cuz - I'm here. I try and read almost every day - but don't always comment. So one of those hits is probably just me, not a crazy lurker. Well, at least on the days I go into my blog I try to click on yours too (your's, you're's... j/k). Girls with Guns are kewl... lmao Have a fabulous week! Oh yeah, are you taking Izzie to Jonas Bros in June? I just bought tix for Cady for her birthday. She is gonna freak. She has never been to a conert before!

wendysue said...

Hey Tori, I think I've commented somewhere before. . but just in case I haven't, here I am! I think I found you from ~j., but who knows. . . I get caught up in this blog world and lose half my day.

See ya!

Anonymous said...

Hey Tori! I didn't realize it but I can admit I am one of the lurkers! Didn't know I could comment if I wasn't a member of this website thingy (you can see how technically challenged I am. But none the less I am coming from out of the shadows. Your blog cracks me up. In fact the other day I came across some D-bag (can't even remember what she did) but it made me think to myself that she deserved a big TAD award and I had to laugh to myself! See, not only is your blog entertaining but also educational for me. I have to also admit this is the only blog I have ever really looked at and it sounds like (judging by your posts) that tons of people do this. My creativity left the building so I will need to rely on you for my laughs each day - THANKS GIRL! Leisha

STEPHANIE said...

Delurking...been reading for probably a month or so...can't remember how I found your blog-someone else probably posted that they liked it on theirs.

Head Nurse or Patient- you be the judge said...

I can't remember if I have ever commented on here or not, but I have been reading for quite a while, like way before you moved back to Texas- no idea how I got here the first time- linked from comments or someone's blog.

Julia said...

Hey, Tori- I've been lurking, so sorry! Sometimes I read blogs, then think about comments to make later. But, as it goes, I never find the time to go back and send them.

I think I may have been reading your blog for maybe 6 mos or so. I use the link off Omar's page- not sure how I got to his, but it's an easy jumping off point.

Cool about your gun- we've had some scary stuff in our suburb of Houston and I've thought of getting one. Now I just have pepper spray, but maybe someday when my kids are older I'll get a handgun...

I enjoy your blog!

Mikelene said...

I think this is my 2nd time reading this post. Kids distract me before I can comment. Happens a lot, unfortunately.
Looks like you had fun shooting the paper man. :)

Klin said...

You look so serious when you are shooting. Nice job.

I'm still trying to figure out how I missed this post until now.

lorilynn said...

Hi Tori. I love your blog. You always brighten my day. It's fun to feel connected to you and Tara through your blogs. I'll be in TX for spring break. We're flying there on Saturday. Maybe we'll see you at church - and by that I don't mean the shooting range - even though we will be in TX : )

Nancy Face said...

Okay, fine. I'll quit lurking.

Nancy Face said...

I'm pretty sure that blue guy is good and dead.

Nancy Face said...

Or at least MOSTLY dead.

Nancy Face said...

Kris Face wants a hand gun. When he gets it I want to take classes so I can mostly kill a blue guy too.

Tori :) said...

Suzanne- So we really WERE like Thelma and Louise when we took our roadtrip!!

Kimberly- Isabel will be at the x's house that week and at the camp in Arkansas on the day of the concert. I MIGHT be taking my lil sister though. I need some excuse to go!!

wendysue- I do remember you commenting before. Thanks for delurking!

Leisha!!- I had a feeling you read so I'm glad you commented. As you can see I'm just as spazzy now as I was in 8th grade.

Stephanie- YAY! THanks for reading and delurking.

Nurse/Patient- LOVE the screen name! LOL

Julia- I had pepper spray and they took it from me at the Canadian border! lol

Mikelene- Newsgator never shows me when you post. I need to re-add your link and see if it works.

Klin- I'm a very serious person. not

Lori- I hope I get to see you!

Nancy- Yes... Nancy, lurking in the bushes... It's about time you show yourself! lol

Mommydew said...

I would like to make this my official de-lurking. You came up in my google reader suggestion corner. I think it's because we have Mommysnark in common or because we're both in Texas...or maybe both. Anyway, love the blog! You make me laugh!

Jennifer Boston Mendenhall said...

Hey, this is my first time to your blog. Just came over from Randi's IsItJustMe blog because I liked your tag line. So this is me pretending to be interested. :0)

aubrey said...

sweet, tori. i am very impressed. i've only been shooting once and it was not at a range, but out in the mountains. later a cop tracked us down and ticketed us for not picking up our shells. someday i would like go go to a range, though.

ucmama said...

Hey Tori, I've commented before but it's been awhile. I followed you from Nobo's page. That's it.
