FRESH FACE FRIDAY [& Blog Hop]: Meet Belle & Britt

It's Friday. Time for the long awaited weekend and the day where I go and shoot my first gun. Yeah, you read that correctly. Saturday morning D and one of his co-workers are making me and his wife go to the shooting range with them and shoot things (i.e. a target, probably). I say "making me" very loosely. I only halfway volunteered to go. See, guns aren't my thing. Shocking, right? Also, sport-like extracurricular activities aren't my thing either. This one time, at a Boy Scout camp my 6th grade class went to, we had to participate in an archery class. Shooting a bow and arrow seems pretty fun and easy enough for an 11 year old, right? Or so I thought...right up until I shot that rubber arrow into my forearm and left a bruise the size of Kentucky up and down my arm. I mean, really. How does one do something like that? A question I've asked myself more times than I'd like to admit, but still come up puzzled. I've warned the boys that I'm not the best shot with an arrow, so a bullet might prove to be troublesome for us all. To which they said that's precisely why they're taking us girls to the range to learn the safe and proper way to handle a gun. Being married to a man in the military is not fun sometimes, people. But, I know I'm in good hands and I won't shoot my own hand off. I think. No, I know I won't. I think. I'll keep you posted. ;)

So, while I'm away getting schooled in rifles, you should grab a cup of coffee, relax in your combat boot-less pajamas and head on over to the two blogs below and say hi! Then spend some time hopping around to other blogs linked-up to the Fresh Face Friday Blog Hop...but don't forget to link-up your own blog as well! 
Happy weekending, my dears!

  3. we did archery for a week in gym class back in 8th grade and I thought it was so much fun! I even won an award at the end for being the best girl archer in the class...although that's really not saying much, considering we were all really awful. I think I just managed to hit the target more frequently than the other girls. ;) but archery's about as far as it goes - guns aren't my thing either. but good luck with the shooting range!
