Fishing

Hello loves.

Hope your weekend was wonderful. Mine was well...eventful. 

I've decided that my new hobby should be fishing.

This girl loves to fish. 
Oklahoma country girl at heart, I guess.

While googling how to catch bigger fish.....I may love to fish but my love hasn't really gotten me anything bigger than a baby fish.

Put it this way, if I had to depend on my fishing skills to feed myself...I would probably starve to death...not for lack of catching fish...just for lack of size.

Anyway back to what I found while googling...they have a women's fishing tournament. 
I've contemplated very hard about this and thought about two things...
1. I for sure need to enter this, as soon as I learn how to catch big fish.
2. Women's fishing tournaments probably happen at the same time as a men's fishing  tournaments...therefore I could meet a potential husband.
Just saying.

Well, while trying to up my fishing game this weekend two things happened.

I got my first sunburn of the summer and it's not even summer.
I'm a white, white, white girl...therefore, I am now lobster red.

and I learned to not wear flipflops while fishing. Oh and my mom is not useful in situations where I fall and can't get up.

I guess that makes three things I learned.

Let me explain.

I decided to walk to the edge of the lake and wash my hands off...instead I slid down the rock butt first straight into the lake...I tried to get back up said rock but it was so slippery that I fell again..not only once but twice...all while my mom is laughing hysterically. My pole went one way and I went the other.

A few scrapes and bruises and sunburn later...I have decided to re-think these fishing tournaments.

ok, i wasn't going to laugh anymore, but i did :)I couldn't stop laughing enough to help you, you just kept slipping in slow motion. Just think if Logan was there with us, he would be right there with me laughing.

As for the fishing tournament, you might need a boat, just saying.

Hahaha too funny! I used to go fishing all the time with my Grandpa when I was little! I think the fishing tournaments sound like a great place to find a man.. as long as you don't fall ;)

I adore fishing! I am not great, but I usually get lucky and beat the boys. And don't worry, I got my first sunburn a couple weekends ago and it was quite possibly the worst sunburn of my life... I promptly went out and bought about 3 different types of sunscreen.

Your post reminded me of a movie called Man's Favorite Sport, starring Rock Hudson and Paula Prentiss (who was in one of my favorite movies Where the Boys Are). Anyway, it's very funny and it's about a fishing tournament.
