Sweater: The Collection
Jeans: Early Jeans
Boots: Tommy Hilfiger
And that's all I have for you today. I slept past run time again, but I'm going to do it tonight after the ponies are tended to and the errands are run. Hopefully next week I'll have a riding outfit for you since I'll be hanging with the Badge!
What are you wearing today? How's the weather where you are? Any favorites from today?

Well... This will be short. We had a warm day here on Tuesday. It almost reached 60! Almost. But today (a mere day later) the high was 30. Tomorrow doesn't look any better. I don't think I'll ever get these horses back to work. But just in case I do, the tall kids got their vaccinations and dentals done.
It's supposed to rain all weekend, so I guess the ponies can milk winter vacation a little bit longer. I'm heading back down to see Badger on Wednesday, so I guess it doesn't make much sense to put the horses back into a program for like 3 days and then leave. But when I get back, they best be ready to work!
Nothing really exciting to report from the last week other than the vet appointment. Everyone's been getting lots of groomies to get them looking shiny and short haired for spring. They're a little annoyed about that since it's currently 25 degrees out. Sorry guys...
What's up with you this Wednesday? Have anything exciting coming up?

I took an early and extended lunch break at 11:30 to meet the vet for spring vaccinations and tooth floating. And this is when things took a turn. My convenient lunch place closes at 2, so I didn't get done with the vet in time to stop there. Instead, I had to settle for the highway rest stop. Options are limited there: Dunkin Donuts (long line), Subway (holy crap, they ROB you there on the hightway. NOPE!), and McDonalds. If you know me at all, you know it was an easy choice. I got a filet o'fish, a medium fries, and medium coke. Yep. That right there is when the diving off the diet wagon started. But it gets worse.
I had big plans of eating healthy for dinner. I was going to groom the ponies and then head to the grocery store to restock the fridge with healthy food. Except I didn't do step 2. I imagine you can see where this is going....
For dinner I wound up eating a microwave pizza followed by binge eating chocolate. Someone please remind me of today when I complain about nothing fitting me and my being excessively... fluffy.
Can you commiserate with me on this? Please share your story below if so. Have anything else you need to confess today?

Jeans: Twentyone Black
Belt: Mane Jane
Boots: Donald Pliner
Ahhhhh! Aren't they pretty?! They're hunter green with a bronze undertone, making them slightly metallic. I have an awesome hunter green leather jacket that goes really well, but it was too cold for it today. I have a confession about these boots... They're not exactly my size... By the time I discovered these, they were already closeouts. While I did find a pair in my size, it was a really expensive pair. I figured I could make the bigger pair work since they were $125 cheaper. So far so good. I may go get a nice thick inner sole for them, but I haven't fallen over my feet yet, so I don't think they're too bad.
And that's what I'm wearing today! What do you have on? Any favorites from today?
The tall kids have been doing their best to keep life entertaining though. Saturday morning, Jamp sprung a shoe.
Luckily, my farrier was passing by on his way to the airport. (I never get that lucky!) So he stopped and tacked it on. How awesome is he? I have to also tell you that this was literally the day after I had talked to him about shoeing horses, and we decided they could wait until he gets back from Florida. Horses... Making liars out of their owners since the start of time...
Rio decided that he hasn't been getting enough attention between Jamp's hives (and now shoe) and Romey's fat leg, so he decided to go outside and tear off his ergot. Thankfully my farrier was just arriving as I was cleaning it out and offered some helpful advice on what to do with it and reassured me that the vet wasn't needed. It's nice to have a well educated second opinion around. Rio is just fine and will certainly survive his injury.
It snowed here Friday and then again yesterday. I think even the horses are over it.
Pia had a recheck with the vet Saturday afternoon, and I'm happy to report everything seems to be just fine with her. All of her tests came back normal. She was really excited to ride in the truck:

It's tough to tell from the photo, but the bottom pair is hunter green. I love how they came out! I thought they might have to sand off the stars and other decor, but they were able to just color right over them! So fun, I can't wait to use them.
I wish I could say I hope to start riding next week, but it's not going to be above freezing for the foreseeable future. And MORE snow predicted for Saturday. Ugh. At this rate, I'll be lucky to start horse showing by July! (You know, assuming Jamp decides to be sound this year. I don't have high hopes of anyone else taking me to a horse show.)
That's what's up this Wednesday. What's up with you?

Jacket: Black Rivet
Sweater: Rue 21
Jeans: LC Lauren Conrad
Belt: No brand
This is one of my go-to belts! I got the green strap on ebay, so it doesn't have a brand. It is real leather though! My H buckle fits it perfectly.
And that's what I'm wearing today. No riding outfit since it's been about a hundred years since I sat on a horse. We're getting 5 inches of snow tomorrow and a possible blizzard on Tuesday, so I don't think that will change any time soon. Wah. #ihatethisweather
What are you wearing today? How's the weather where you are?
