    I have a weird life, I think - people always laugh at my photos anyway - so I thought I'd share some. [​IMG]

    This is the farm (in summer, haha) that my husband's family owns. I love to go 4wheeling in the paddock, and so does my Lola!

    For a second you'd almost not know I was a city girl. (except you can see my acrylic nails...)

    What, you don't kiss wild wallabies?

    [​IMG]
    Or sleep with kangaroos? (hm, I need better wording)

    I really like randomly interjecting this photo into conversations without using it in context because that makes it funnier.

    "Let's read the paper!" Or, as my husband puts it... "Let's look at the pictures!" .... "Of tools!"

    Wedding dress, check. Jimmy Choos, check. Bottle, check. Goat... what?!

    It's a good skill to know! (don't blame me, my husband was teaching me and well '[He] doesn't use gloves')

    This is pretty much ALL since I met my husband and he turned me into a country girl!!! I think he won! [​IMG]

    Hey that's a good way to get a weld burn!


    I looked at your website awhile back and thought about asking but never got around to it but uh just how do you get a kangaroo to pose like that anyway?

    I really really need a wallaby. I think that I would be complete with one. Very cute pictures.

    Great pictures!!

    I wanna wallaby!

    They're so cute. How are they as house pets? Do they mind car rides?

    Quote:They're great house pets!! They are rambunctious so do need to go outside but you can keep them inside too. I don't know about car rides so much, I've only held them in people's homes or in parks. [​IMG]
