Please and Thank You

A few things:

If you haven’t heard yet, Aryelle over at Horse Hack is having a fun blogging contest, and yours truly is up for contention today! Head on over and vote (preferably for me, but follow your heart), and stay tuned for the rest of the contest over the next few weeks.

Also, thank you times a million for all your awesome suggestions on my wishlist last week! I was out of town for the weekend so I didn’t get to respond to everyone, but I SO appreciate the time and thought you guys gave and am taking all your suggestions into consideration for sure.

Manfriend and I did a mini-weekend trip down to Richmond and I wore MAkeUP and dID mY hAIr whatttttt

Manfriend has informed me that he’s cooking up a new post for y’all, which should be at least as hilarious as his last chime-in. My super awesome amazing Daddoo is also coming down for a visit in November, and I’ve already planted the idea of him guest posting as well! Please help me pressure him into writing for me. C’mon Daddy, don’t you WANT me to be happy?!

Despite my show hiatus, this fall is ramping up to have all sorts of fun adventures that I can’t wait to share with you! And as always, let me know if there’s any type of post you’re really feelin’ or want to see. Ask and ye shall receive.

Happy Friday!

Sneak Preview

Hello friends!

I’m really hoping D’Arcy at thecluelessbutcuriousrider is more on her game than me, because I haven’t even started a recap of our lesson yet. Hopefully will put that together tonight*- spoiler alert, it was fantastic. I actually kept my leg on and stuck to my guns, and PonyFace was an absolute flippin’ rockstar!

But just so that I don’t leave you hanging, here’s a couple exciting things in the works that I’ll be posting over the next few weeks:

  1. An ode to Hunt Club. They’re pretty much my favorite company and I’m obsessed with their belts. I’m their creepy Twitter fan. I love them so much it hurts. I must share with you how glorious they are.
  2. Interviews with my Trainer and Assistant Trainer. I figure I quote them all the time, why not go straight to the source? They’ve both agreed to respond to a list of questions I put together and share their wisdom with the world! Both of them are genuinely awesome people as well as talented trainers and coaches.
  3. A post about my job and work/life balance and other musings about that. Yes, a non-horse post (it’s been months since I posted something non-horse related!). But as I’ve mentioned a couple times, my job has picked up a ton lately and I’d like to share a little bit more about all the shenanigans going on in that aspect of my life.
  4. My show prep checklist. Things inevitably go a little wonky on show days, but so far no huge disasters have happened for us (*knocks on wood*). Also, I love lists more than I love almost anything else. So yeah, have some unsolicited advice from a rank amateur.
  5. A review of my new breeches. Since my last post about FancyPants I’ve added several to the collection! I actually had to put myself on a breeches spending freeze because my trainer said, and I quote, “Stop buying pants and start saving for more shows!!!” Oops. #sorrynotsorry
  6. My wishlist of tack/show clothes/horsey stuffs. Also known as the When-I-Win-The-Lottery list.

Stay tuned!

*I do have a wedding this weekend that I have to pack and prep for, so this maaaay be postponed.
