Sweater: Tommy Hilfiger
Pants: Tommy Hilfiger
And that's it for today! I'm hoping really hard to get to ride by Sunday, so maybe I can have a riding outfit next week... Any favorites from today? How's the weather where you are?

So you know what's NOT up? My saddle on a horse's back that's what. This weather is the pits! Today we're having crazy winds (nothing like CA though thankfully) and the high is 29. So with wind chill, that's single digits my friends. Gross. Anyone wanna trade? (Not you Katepeacecarrots, I know this would be a heat wave up there!)
Anyway, due to stupid weather conditions, this will probably be a pretty short recap. As you remember I got home from FL last Monday, and riding was pretty spotty last week. I had hoped to ride Thursday but by the time I got home from work the ring was getting crunchy already. I had a full night of cookie backing ahead too, so I just gave the boys each a quick grooming and headed toward the kitchen.
And then Saturday. The weatherman all week were saying a storm was going to miss us. Then all of a sudden on Friday they were like NOPE! Heading our way! And started predicting one to three inches of snow. Ok, that's tolerable. But by Friday night they were predicting 8-12 inches. Ugh. No thank you! The snow was starting early so no riding again.
I had a 1 o'clock hair appointment to keep me occupied though, so at least there was that.
Thankfully we only wound up getting a couple of inches. Three tops. Jampy isn't exactly a model riding citizen after a few days off, so I didn't even consider riding him in the snow Sunday... Ok, well I thought about it for maybe 10 seconds then laughed and noped right out of that. Rio however is a perfect prince so I dressed him up in his winter woolies and we went for a stroll around the ring. Neither of them has winter shoes on yet, and this snow was really sticky, so best to err on the side of caution. We don't need any injuries at the old age home!
I set up the phone so I could get some sad little riding media for this week's post.
|Give me disinterest Rio!|
|Not my good side mom.|
The puggers aren't really big fans of winter. Artie especially hates being cold. He spends very little time outside and immediately comes in and lays on the heating vent. Smart dog!

Well, that's about it from here. How are things where you are? Getting much riding done? Are you ready for the holidays?

I like to think that I do a decent job of gifting things I know the recipient will love. Friends often come to me for gift suggestions, so I have evidence to back up this claim. Some examples that you guys have to promise not to tell (seriously, these peeps don't read the blog, so make sure they don't find out!): Step Mom has been wanting to get back to riding. I currently don't have a safe beast for her, so I'm getting her a couple lessons and a pair of Regal boots. My mom is a HUGE Hillary Clinton fan, so she's getting a signed copy of HRC's book. (Plus a bunch of other stuff cause she's my momma). My little brother who lives in the wilderness without electricity? Hammock.
But. There's one guy that I just have the hardest time finding gifts for. My dad! The man has everything he could ever want. And his taste is far and above my budget. He doesn't have much in the way of hobbies other than sport fishing. Let me tell you, there is nothing in my price range to get him for THAT.
Do you guys have any suggestions for the man who has literally everything? He doesn't drink at all and doesn't golf if that's helpful (I know, not at all).
Do you have anyone really hard to shop for on your list? What do you end up doing for him/her?
