Informal Blog Hop: Transformations... And some other stuff...

"Don't worry Mom! They'll love me!"
So the show countdown is really getting short and I kind of want to vomit. Thanks for everyone who is supporting me and saying I'll be fine because without it... I probably wouldn't go. He was real spookish on our ride yesterday through the trails which was odd, but hey, they can't ALL be perfect right? Back to ring work today, maybe some in hand stuff as a cool down since I decided it'd be smart to sign up for Showmanship classes... Smart right? We shall see!

Father/Daughter Time 1988
So the 22nd was my Dad's birthday and I celebrated it by going on a trail ride with K who rode the Fat Halfie, and he celebrated it in NH with his girlfriend. I was totally okay with that seeing as he hasn't really gotten to do much traveling lately. He made me a delicious birthday cake before he left though! YUM! Maybe after the show we'll get more Father/Daughter Time before his work gets crazy again. I'm 26 but I'm such a Daddy's Girl. Not in a way where I say, "Daddy buy me this!" but more as a "I got to go to Walmart with my Dad today and we got lunch and YYAAAYYY!" Now shooting skeet is a thing. I'm okay with it.

Father/Daughter Time 2014
In other news, I got one more gift for my birthday. My brothers took me to Black Lotus Studios the other day to set up an appointment for Khail to get his 2nd tattoo. His first one he got about a month ago which was LUCKY in a Celtic font down his ribcage. It really meant a lot for him since LB was a huge part of his life like Brantley is to Mason. What they surprised me with at the tattoo place was that I was going to get one too. I got my first one when I was 19 and it took me 4 years and a giant pile of napkins and scrap pieces of paper to make it perfect. It's taken me just as long to think of my next one plus save up the money to get it. They knew how much I wanted it so...

LB's Tattoo Number
The trinity has always had a strong pull drawing me towards the symbol. I know it sounds weird but I just couldn't place it. After the years have gone by I've realized that for my brothers and I, no matter how bad things gets, or how far away we are, we'll always have that bond. Khail is leaving for college Sunday and I won't be here to say goodbye, so getting this was really important to me. For them to come together and do this for me? Holy crap! <3 I am so lucky.

INFORMAL BLOG HOP: Transformations

Now for my first attempt at the blog hop! Okay, so it's an informal blog hop run by Life of Riley. It's only been about two and a half years since I've had Brantley so this should be easy. I'm on a work computer so I can't get fancy. But here ya go!





Tried to keep it short but... There's so much more to it than this :)
I wish I could put MY transformation in pictures since I've had him.
