Keeping Up? HA!

You will always be my number one. You will always be my heart and soul. I love you.

First I will start this long "awaited post" with this...

Ummmm... Camouflage... What?

I don't know whether I love them and am totally excited about them or... I hate them and very happy I can't afford them...

So to start off "that weekend", Wendy and I trailered to Arcadia for our final hunter pace with WGHA. If we had thought our horses were rockstars before, they are... I don't even know how to describe it. Of course Brantley and those god damn blue barrels, but we trotted over bridges and through ditches. We also galloped through fields and through some treacherous areas. Even the bridge that they didn't go over that fateful day we got lost for 6 hours, didn't even bat an eye!

Now you know I'm not really one for ribbons but it was Lucky's anniversary and we were doing so well that maybe, just maybe, we'd come out on top. We would've loved even a red ribbon... Blue would've made me cry though - we didn't get called... We didn't even place. OUR NAMES NEVER CAME! We were a little confused but there were also 28 riders and I tried not to think about it. We couldn't have pushed our ponies any more than we did and they were so much better than they had ever been EVER!

Wendy and I finally came to the decision to ask what our time was... He looked confusingly at the sheet and asked if we missed a turn - We said, "No, why?"

WE WERE 16 MINUTES TOO FAST!!!!!

TOOOOO FFFFAAASSSTTTTT!!!

Oh well... I guess we'll have to move up to Hunters next season - Pomfret Pace? Here we come!

So running my own business? Pretty cool - thought I'd have more time for blogging but still have to make time instead. It's going well though. I'm really busy - now just to do the official tax stuff. K has been amazing and helping me get the internet stuff underway but to look at what's up for now!

If you're into off-roading and Jeeps - Check out Ocean State Jeepsters on Facebook - They're awesome! They put on some "trail rides" through the woods behind a dealership. 40+ acres of trails. Of course I asked who I had to sell myself to or sell my soul to at least to get back there with Brantley but the man in charge graciously explained to me why I couldn't. *sad face*

We walked the trails and there was a break down (drive shaft for anyone who is interested) and one of the Jeepsters helping (because Jeep people are cool like that) offered us a ride through the rest of the trail (he was following behind a convoy that went out).

Our ride!
Not pony safe bridge...
We had to strap 'em out!

One way to donate your old beat up lemon!
It was great and made some awesome new friends/acquantances and was able to hand out some business cards as well.

So onto my birthday! Basically... Friends came over and Dad made me an EPIC birthday cake - then we went out for karaoke <3 It was amazing. And a success... #2 down!

Best Dad EVER!
Yes... There was a fireball MLP and Starbursts.

I love this dog.
Yes - It turned into a MLP and rainbow farting unicorn themed.
Apparently I'm 5 and I love it.

And last but not least... Working on a project with the help of Kate (of course because as usual, she's amaze-balls <3) and she caught some stills...

If you know anyone in the area who needs any sort of graphic design help, fancy saddle pad work, or any sort of photographic adventures - CONTACT HER: POLAR SQUARE DESIGNS
**Relentless advertising because I love her more than... MLP & Fireball... Sorry L.Williams...**


This is everything.
Everything I have fought, cried, bled, sweat, and iced my concussed brain over.
Everything I worked for.
Everything I wanted.
Everything these last 4 years have finally paid off for.
This is what "dreams come true" looks like.

But unfortunately - This picture is waaaay more important.


Hope everyone has a kick ass week - I know I have.

You would've totally fit in with us at karaoke. Fireball and MLP... AAAALLLL night. Our team name was "Fireball Fighter Ponies" or maybe there was a unicorn in there too... I don't really remember.
