My world of Pre-Vet

I call my family on a regular basis to just chat. I talk to my mom and sister about everything, school, work, TJ, bills, cooking, anything and everything. My dad and brother on the other hand don't really care about that kind of stuff. So I talk to them about the stuff I think is cool! Well Brian has informed that I need to draw the line. He doesn't think some of these things are cool! My family has informed that I need to blog about these things because they find them so hilarious! So I have my weekly call to tell my dad and grandpa what I did in my Animal Health and Hygiene Lab. Last week we were doing physicals on dairy cows. All of you who know me, I am short, cows are big...thats a problem... you would think! They have invented a handy little stepping stool that allows short people like me to climb on up to examine the cows. After listening to them breath, checking their heartbeat, listen to gut noises it was time for the "rectal examine". Now my teacher was not specific in his directions at all. He gave us some brief pointers on how not hurt your shoulder while going deep into the back end of a cow and then turned us loose! So I grab my should length glove and some lube and pick my cow. I walked up to a shorter one and picked up her tail. I dove right in...I was feeling around for the any signs of uterus or cervix...feeling a bit lost I looked up at my teacher as he whispered "wrong hole"....I had gone into the wrong hole!! I was feeling around for the uterus in the cows rectum!!  To my entire family this was hilarious! I on the other hand was very very embarrassed!!  Don't fret I will be practicing next week!! Stay tuned for more of my pre-vet experiences.

Rascal Flatts and Jessica Simpson

 Thursday night we went to Rascal Flatts and Jessica Simpson. We didn't just go to the concert...we went with style! My dad did some work with the tour manager for Rascal Flatts. My dad and mom and Tj and I had front row tickets and Meet n' Greet passes.  We got to go backstage and meet Rascal Flatts before the show started and had our picture taken with them. Then we were lead to our seats and we just kept walking closer and closer to the stage. We were literally less than five feet from the stage. Definitely close enough to see if Jessica Simpson was really fat...and she is not! I wish my legs looked like that! I have always loved Rascal Flatts music but not a big fan of the band because they are a little pop star for me but they put on a great show! And who is to complain when you are that close!! It really was a great night! Thanks Dad the tickets were amazing!!

I have no idea how she walked in these shoes! 
Not fat right? She may be hiding it under the shirt but I was convinced!
