My "Not-So-Girly" Girl

Growing up, Courtney was always a tomboy. A few years ago, she started to like wearing dresses and skirts and doing her hair and make-up (and taking forever doing it too). But, I caught her doing this the other day, so I guess.....once a tomboy....always a tomboy. Do any of you have tomboys?Showing off her muddy hands (doesn't she look proud)!
Playing with the worms in the mud puddle.






Courtney....my tomboy!











Playing in the mud puddle (the worms are in the puddle).







At least she looks a little graceful playing in the mud.






I am a tomboy at heart too and am not afraid to get dirty so she must get it from me. I also like worms, she must also get that from me.

I can't classify myself as a tomboy. I don't mind getting dirty and working hard, but i really dislike anything creepy and crawly! Brylie is very similar to me. As girlie as she is though, she is a very hard worker and doesn't mind getting her hands dirty.

Sadly I am the tom-boy:)
I grew up on a farm, and enjoyed all kinds of neat outdoor farm things. I also love dressing up and being one of the girls(with my daughter)

I even played on a boys baseball team before our town had girls softball.(1975 yes I am slightly you know old!!!)

I was never a complete tomboy, but I did love playing in the dirt and making mudpies when I was a child.

My granddaughter (3yrs old) prefers dresses, but she can keep up with her brother and boy cousins just fine when she wants to! She goes from rough and tumble to playing with dolls in a heartbeat.

It looks like she is having a fun time anyway.
I grew up on a farm too. But I am not a tom boy. I don't mind to work hard though.

This girl of yours would look pretty if mud was even all over her face!!! You can tell she's having a good time.

I also grew up on a farm, however I'm as girly as they come!

I would say I'm a tomboy...always have been. I don't mind getting dirty (I don't however like to pick up worms..he he)! I like to watch tractor pulls and dirt track racing. Yet I can get girly if need be :)!

As far as spinach recipes...all I've done with mine so far is blanch it and freeze it for later use. I have a great Mexican Chicken recipe that has spinach in it if you want that...let me know! With some of the fresh I might make a few salads (my sister in law made this really good spinach salad with strawberries and a raspberry vinegrette (sp?)...I might have to get that recipe from her and share it :)!

Have a great day!

Love it! I'm a girly girl but admire any woman who can get down and dirty. They only mud that this body will see is that in a spa. HAHAHAH ;)

I used to be a tom-boy with sports. But I was never into mud and cars and bugs.

Love the pictures of her in the mudd having fun!!

I can't decide if I'm a tomboy or a "girly" girl. I've been this way since I was a little girl.

I don't mind getting a little dirt on my hands as long as I can wash it off right away. Gardening is about it for me!

Oh how funny, like mother, like daughter:) I have never been a tomboy, but both of my sisters were/are. Cute pictures!

I grew up on a farm and I guess I was a tomboy with my horses and all the rest of the farm animals. I just loved them. I used to rescue the big night crawlers that would get out on the road when it rained and put them in the dirt. I guess I still like to rescue things like one of my ponies that I got out of a really bad situation!

These are cute pictures!! I am the farthest thing from a tomboy... and my 13 year old has decided she is NOT going to be a girly girl like her little sister and (she says) me. So she's taken up skateboarding, and she's pretty good at it!! :-)

I love that Courtney is a tomboy and a girly-girl. She's not afraid of a little mud or hard work and yet she can "clean-up" and look so pretty in the latest styles and fashions.

She does look graceful! I am not into worms! Couldn't do what she is doing! She looks good no matter what though doesn't she?
