Ahhh Monday...

After the crazy (all good crazy!) weekend, I'm actually relieved to be back at work. It's almost relaxing! I **think** this is the last of my out of control weekends. I'm not sure what I'll do when things are calmer.... Sleep maybe? Start back to running? That second one needs to happen regardless. I stuffed my face for 4 days straight. More or less non stop. Moooo.

So anyway, I figured I'd take you along on my weekend adventures since I have no running to talk about. Or riding really. I rode, but no shows this weekend. Let's go see all my outfits and events!

I had dinner plans with my friend that helped me at a horse show recently. My treat as a thank you for giving up her Sunday to hold my horse for me. I was super excited though, when she asked if I would rather go to the town fair. DUH! Of COURSE I did! Mmm fair food.... We met up around 8 after I finished riding and taking care of the ponies. We walked around a bit, did some people watching and animal petting, and of course stuffed our faces. We got to watch some hilarious pig races too!

I couldn't stay out too late as I had a braiding job for the evening. It was actually kind of nice to braid after a glass of wine and a full belly!

I got home around 12:30 and hung out with the pugs for a little bit before bed. I REALLY wanted to go to sleep right away, but they had been alone most of the day, and I knew the same would hold true for the rest of the weekend. Thank goodness they're low energy pugs, or they would really be hating me lately!

My barn helper had the weekend off, so I was up at 7 to do barn chores and get the horses worked early.

Next stop on Stacie's busy weekend was a trip to the toy store to get a birthday present for stop #3. Once that mission was accomplished, I ran home to get showered and prettied up for my best friend's daughter's third birthday party! I was zero time between stop #3 (birthday party) and stop #4 (lobster fest), so I had to wear the same outfit to both.

 The party was an hour away and started at 3... Lobsterfest was an hour and half away from the party and started at 6. But I also had to stop home in between to feed the four leggeds. And of course there was traffic... I was late to both stops. But not tremendously at least.
I am lacking in party photos because I don't want to post pics of other people's kids... but here's a present, part of a face, and a hand!

I got home to feed the ponies around 6 and then headed over to my dad's house for LobsterFest. It's exactly what you think... about 25 people, 75 lobsters, 25 lbs of steak, and some sides. Oh and wine of course... Here are the highlights:

Making friends with my dinner...

It was a gorgeous night for some gluttony of the lobster variety! The best part is everyone's getting... ahem... OLDER, so I was home by 10. The puggers and I hung out watching some tv, I may or may not have napped on the floor with them, and then it was off to bed!

Sunday started out much the same as Saturday. Barn chores and pony play time!

Next was another quick visit with Ducky. Unfortunately I left my phone in the car again and therefore took zero photos. Sorry again! Next time!

After hanging with Ducky for a bit (I groomed him and got to watch him work a little before I had to leave) I drove home as fast as I dared to get ready for my friend's wedding. I only had 20 minutes... good thing it was nearby! So funny thing happens at the wedding... I'm standing around chatting, when my friend Ashley comes up and says, "nice dress!" Yep, you guessed it, we wore the same dress! Oops... We told people we were the fake bridesmaids... It was a beautiful event, not a bad way to spend a Sunday!

My last stop for the weekend was to drop off some leftover lobster with my sister-in-law, visit with my niece, and meet their new rescue husky Sasha!

And FINALLY at 8 pm on Sunday, I got to relax with the puggers:

How was your weekend? Was it fun filled and action packed with decadent foods like mine?


  1. Ohhh... the sight of snoozing puggies does my heart good.

    Girl, you had a busy, busy weekend! That lobsterfest looked amazing! And who doesn't love a fair?

    We went to a concert, had a date night and took little man to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It wasn't crazy busy, but the late nights definitely took some steam out of my sails.

    1. Lobsterfest was so fun! Best part, my dad's headed out of town, so I got all the leftovers I could possibly eat!
      How was TMNT?!
