I really want a pet deer. | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

I really want a pet deer.


Laying in the gun case because I wasn't in the mood to get dirt all over myself :)




Next week I am going HUNTING. I've never hunted in my entire life but my in-laws are pretty into it so they put me in to go! I'm excited now but I wonder if when I see a cute little animal I'll change my mind haha I'm going javelina hunting and they aren't really cute so I think I'll be good to get one. Deer on the other hand... I have a plan that if I ever get to go on a deer hunt, I'm just going to shoot its foot so I can take it home and make it be my pet while I nurse it back to health. And then still keep it as a pet when it's better.

On Saturday my father in law took Jason and me out to practice shooting! I don't remember what the gun was called but it was really heavy and super loud and I felt kind of cool shooting it at the targets. Dave (father in law) said I did pretty good with hitting the stuff he told me to hit so if I see a javelina next week, I think I'll be able to get it! They always joke (better be a joke) that if I kill something, I'll have to skin it. Obviously that won't happen. Because that grosses me out. I'll leave the skinning to Jason :)

The only thing I'm nervous about is how I've been sick with being pregnant! I hit 14 weeks last Friday and seriously that was the first day I didn't throw up in 2 weeks!! So yeah, I've been feeling a lot better, so crazy cause it was a little night and day with how I felt! Still not feeling normal (which is fine cause you know, there's a baby growing in my womb and stuff) but it's still awesome to be feeling better than before! I'm hoping baby keeps this behavior up and starts fluttering around so I can feel it soon!

 We have a doctor appointment on Thursday and I'm so excited to hear the heart beat and for whatever else happens at 2nd appointments! yay babies!! I'm for sure showing but probably just look chubby to people who don't know I'm pregnant so I want to get some pictures taken later this week so I can document this chubby belly! I haven't really taken "bump pictures" because it's so tiny I feel like it would be pointless to have a bunch of chubby pictures of me on my phone haha so yeah, I'll take some cute chubby pictures and that will be my belly documenting start. Happy Monday!!

  1. Eek I'm still so excited to hear you talking about the baby! You should absolutely take "bump pictures" each week just to document. I've seen other bloggers do a weekly bump post to just talk about the progress and all that. Yay for getting to hear the heartbeat soon!!

  3. I have never done hunting ever!!! My uncle and cousins do it but I don't, I'm horrible and well not very quiet and that seems to be an important thing in hunting haha. However you already look like a pro.

  5. My dad is a big hunter and when he goes out it is really serious. No fun, no games, just serious. I support that because ya know... guns, but it still is weird to talk about how serious he is at his hobby!

    1. My father in law said he used to be like that until it made my MIL not want to hunt anymore haha :) Hopefully he is easy on a rookie like me!!

  6. It's always fun to step outside our comfort zones. Personally, I am a vegetarian and could probably never shoot anything lol. However, I am much more ok with people hunting their own food than the nasty factories and slaughter house practices. So props to your in-laws for hunting their own food!

    1. haha I eat meat but really not a ton like most people! I've always thought vegetarians were so cool and I watched the fork over knives documentary to convince me to become one haha (didn't work...) but I try to only buy meat that comes from places where animals were happy and free range (hopefully that isn't too naive!) but yes their game meat makes me happy cause the animals were are least living happy lives and stuff!! :)

    1. I might ask (beg) Jason to take a couple this weekend so I can get the belly documentation started! Baby's heart beat was 144 (another sign for a girl!!) so I really am leaning towards that now!! 4 weeks till we find out gender!!! haha I might try to catch a deer on this trip by "accident" ;)

  10. I'm surprised you could lay on your belly and shoot that gun--it hurt to lay on my belly from the start! You definitely need to start bump pictures!

    1. haha I know, I'm so glad it isn't uncomfortable yet because I am totally a belly sleeper!! I have to lay my arm under my belly so i'm not just flat and then it's all good! :)

  14. Ever start writing the longest comment and then IT DISAPPEARS?!! That just happened to me. So let me start over.

    Where are your leggings from???? I want. And I think you are the coolest wife ever because I went to the gun range with John and my little brother and I was going to go in too, but I started crying uncontrollably once I heard the noises. This doesn't look as bad though because it's in a big open space. And I think it's so so cute that you do this stuff with him. I think most girls (me) would be like, "go ahead" and stay home but you guys like to do things together and it's so cute. #favoritecouple

    1. FOREVER 21!!! haha always f21 because they are SO CHEAP ($3) I linked them in the post I wrote today (obviously I am super behind on replying to comments haha) K and seriously I have had comments disappear when I've written them and it is really so dang annoying so I feel you! And you are so nice!!! I wore these fancy sound canceling head phones while we were shooting otherwise it would be SO LOUD and I would probably pop an ear drum (gross but true) Jason couldn't get work off so I'm going with just his parents so I'm kinda nervous!! haha hopefully I can impress them with my shooting "skills" ;)
