Heather from BlondeUndercoverBlonde!

I am excited to introduce Heather to y'all. I really enjoy reading her blog and she is super sweet and fun to follow on twitter :) Check her out!

Howdy, y'all!

I'm Heather from...

I blog about life, love, and furbabies.

I am so excited that Kaitlin asked me to guest post for her!
When I asked Kaitlin if there was a topic she'd like me to cover, she said mentioned both Texas and my nickname, "Blonde...Undercover Blonde". After a little brainstorming, I came up with a topic that covers both:

For those of you non-Texans out there, we're proud people. You could spend years here and never see every monument and tourist stop. There is one place that most people like to go to hike:

Like any normal Texan, I have attempted Enchanted Rock on more than one occassion.
"Attempted" being the key word.
There's a point on the rock, where you look behind you, and it looks like a straight drop.
This is the point that gets me every time.
I should point out that I've skiied in Colorado, climbed the mountains in New Mexico, hiked in Tennessee...But I have yet to conquer this darned rock.

The last time I attempted it, I got to the same point, turned around, saw the drop off...
Marched the rest of the way up the rock like a sane adult
Clung to the nearest rock and cried.
Not joking.

To make matters worse, a troop of grown Girl Scouts Brownies walked by and started cheering "You can do it, don't be afraid!"
And this is the only time in my life I've ever given a Brownie the stank eye.
Normally, I run to them, requesting Thin Mints.
The hubby & I are actually planning a trip to that part of Texas this fall.
I'm almost feeling crazy enough to attempt the rock again...

Sorry, know the spacing is always off....darn you blogger!

That's kind of funny. But you never know, maybe this will be the time with different results.

I'd probably react the same way, due to my slight fear of heights. At least you've attempted it. You CAN do it! [And now I want some Thin Mints!]

Rebekah said...

Haha, LOVE that the Brownies told you you could do it!

You can do it - you can do it!! What if there were boxes of Thin Mints waiting at the TOP???

This is too funny! I hope you are able to conquer your fears next time!

Ashleigh said...

You are braver then me!

I'm sure Heather will conquer the rock eventually! Love this post :)
