Getting to Know the OB Chicks: Leigh

Hey ya'll!  We've been seeing these little lists pop up in the blogsphere and thought it was a cute idea for you guys to get to know us better!  So, here's 25 little facts about myself!

  1. I'm OBSESSED with country music.  Like, to creepy levels.  I saw my favorite guy, Brantley Gilbert, in Texas, West Virginia, Charlotte, and Ohio (three times) in the last year. 
  2. I've worked in a bar for the better part of the last decade.  I really should get paid more for being a therapist, relationship counselor, life coach, and shoulder to cry on.  It is amazing what strangers will tell you!  But hey, it makes my job interesting.
  3. I get all my meat, vegetables, and eggs delivered to me from a farm out in Johnstown, Ohio.  They are seriously amazeballs.  I've toured the farm, seen how they treat the animals, and met the farmers.  I will never buy from the grocery store again.
  4. I was visiting Boston on the day of the bombings.  Events like that put your whole life in perspective.
  5. I am a proud Ohio State University alumni.  Go Bucks!
  6. I've had the same two best friends forever.  One I met in 1st grade and the other in 7th.  
  7. I'm also obsessed with cowboy boots.  I have 5 pairs.  I would have more, but do you know how much they cost?!  A whole freakin' paycheck!  Geesh.
  8. I've jumped out of a plane. 
  9. My parents bought me a car when I was 15.  I still drive it....12 years later.   Man, if that car could talk. 
  10. Someday I will live in the country and have animals.
  11. I wholeheartedly believe in the teachings of The Secret.  Saying that it changed my relationships, my outlook, and my life really is an understatement.
  12. I once cut my hair off after too much tequila.  Oops.
  13. I moved to Los Angeles after college and lived off of Hollywood Blvd.
  14. In the last year(ish) I have traveled to Texas, California, New York, North Carolina (a million times), South Carolina, Tennessee, New Mexico, Massachusetts, and West Virginia.  Traveling feeds the soul.  Do it as much and as often as you can.
  15. There's this really sweet guy who takes me on drives in the country, feeds me all sorts of bad food, and beats me at corn hole and pool every time.  Someday J, I'll kick your butt!
  16. I am a die hard skincare advocate.  I have a huge phobia of tanning beds and sunburns.  I did some major damage in my teens and have spent my twenties trying to make up for it.
  17. I am a Taco Bell addict.  So much so that I staged my own intervention, and have not had it since December 31st, 2012.  I now make my own organo version at home.
  18. I am trying to learn to play the guitar.
  19. My Norman Rockwell life consists of an old farmhouse, a hot rugged hubby, five boys, and an F-150.  Funny, coming from a girl who grew up in the 'burbs.
  20. I LOVE shooting guns.  I prefer handguns, but I'm getting more comfortable with shotguns and rifles.
  21. I love love.  I have parents who have been married for 36 years and I've seen what a successful and loving marriage looks like.  If my marriage is half as good as theirs, I will come out with the W.
  22. I dyed my hair blonde and got fake nails at 13 and never turned back.
  23. Someday I will not work for "the man", but rather for myself.
  24. Before I go to bed at night, I think of 10 things that I am grateful for.
  25. I believe that what we eat affects our entire life.  I think chemicals are whackballs I avoid them like the plague.

    Don't mess with a girl and her gun.
