1. When you were 17, tell us what kind of car you drove, where you worked, and what you were usually up to on the weekends?
I drove a 1994 Ford Ranger Extended cab that was tricked out.  Yes, I usually got made fun of, I hate to tell what they called it here on the blog because it was kind of racist, but I live in a town full of Hispanics and so they always called it the Beaner truck :(.

I didn’t have a paying job persay… I lived on a farm so I was a farm hand.  Plus I showed sheep for FFA so sheep and Horses were my life.  It was probably a very boring life for most but I liked/loved it.  Heck I was driving a truck at 4 years old by myself.

2. Show us a picture of you when you were 17 {roughly}.

My Senior Photos – Which I cried over, now I wish I still looked like that 😉


3. When you were 17, tell us what you wanted to be when you “grew up.”
I was fairly undecided.  I graduated high school at 17 so I was looking in to going to college.  Originally I declared my major as Agriculture Journalism, however once I got to college I decided to pursue Agriculture Education instead.  All I knew is I wanted something to do with the Agriculture field.
4. When you were 17, tell us the kind of boys that you dated. Did you have a type? Do you have a relationship you remember well? Tell us about it.
Oddly enough I met my husband just shy of 17, I was 15 and he was completely different (at that time) to the type of guys I went for.  Believe it or not, I am actually a fairly shy person.  Around people I know or definitely on this blog, it’s mine after all, I’m a little more outgoing, so I only dated 2 guys all through high school.  One for 5 months and the other for 1 year 4 months.  Neither ended very well but whatever, that’s the past.  They were both cowboy type, you know, good old farm boys of sorts, however I do believe there is a difference between good old farm boys and cowboys, another post for another day.  My husband at the time – VERY city and that scared me.  Now I realize he isn’t very city, but I didn’t know that at the time.  Truthfully I’m not sure I ever dated, well I take that back, I may have dated one city boy.  He didn’t understand country life at all and so we didn’t last.  But again, all relationships help you learn, grown and develop!  And oddly enough I fit in with the city crowd too, although I still stick out a bit.  I think it’s the boots and belt buckle that set me apart ;).

5. When you were 17, tell us where you pictured your life 10 years from then. Did it turn out the way you expected it to? Life is so far from how I thought it would pan out.  I planned on graduating high school, going to college, being married by oh I’d say 23-25, settling down and probably doing something in the agriculture related industry for a job, and having one maybe two kids, but still wasn’t sure there.  Ok so I work for a company in the bedding industry, I was 27 when I got married, I became an instant {step}mom and I married a guy that I was supposed to have a date with at 15.  How’s that for nothing like you imagined?  I do however have my Agriculture degree… And I graduated high school and then college in 4 years.  That was what I thought would happen.  From there, nope, nada.

  3. Cool post, when I was 17 I was dating my highschool sweetheart (lucky that mess went away yeesh!) Driving a full sized Chevy blazer (black) with over tinted windows and a skull and crossbones in the back window (came with the truck it was the logo for a rugby team) That truck went like stink and I was a little fresh faced farm girl who DID not look like i belonged in it !LOL
