Also, I would not be sad if Santa left me these to remember the once again retired cheese balls by:
But you know the other wrench in my good eating plans? They opened up a Popeye's Chicken at the rest stop between my house and work... You can see where that would be a problem right? Have you eaten their biscuits?! (If not, you best get on that. They're amazing.)
Thoughts? Are you a well behaved eater, or do you crave the fried carbs like I do? Especially if they're coated in cheese?
Needless to say, this t-shirt from Circuit style is my new uniform.

Top: Tipsy Elves
Socks: not sure where I got these
Bag: Betsey Johnson
That's what I have on at work today, but Eros and I both have riding outfits to share! I'll go first.
Sweater: Tipsy Elves
Jacket and Vest: Eddie Bauer
Belt: C4 (again)
Boots: Tuffrider Regal
That's what I rode in, so now it's time for what Eros wore... I didn't get a full horse shot, so we'll just do the individuals. (Also, the trainer over there hates color and thought he looked ridiculous. She's boring.)
Pad: Hopeful Equestrian
half pad: I can't remember this brand, so sorry!
Polos: Hopeful Equestrian
Bridle: Spare parts... mostly Royal Sports
Browband: Southern Sweet PGH
And that's it for our Chanukah edition of Thursday's Threads. Any favorites from today? Do you embarrass your horse with theme outfits? If not, you should. They don't usually buck you off in retaliation... only sometimes.

Thursday morning, I got up to bring the short kids over to their grandma's. They were excited to go!
After dropping the kids off, I went straight to the barn, and I got to ride on a freshly dragged ring.
The flight was unexciting (as you like them to be) and my dad picked me up from the airport. We headed to dinner, and then home for a quiet night.
I didn't get to ride while I was in Florida this trip, but I did go visit trainer and got to see her new horse go. New horse is a young mare, jumper prospect. Incredible brain on her! Nothing seems to phase her at all. And I got to see this girl too:
The parade was probably the longest I've ever seen it, probably thanks to the beautiful weather.
|This boat lit up like a train was my favorite|
Trainer gives the horses Sundays off, so instead of horsing, Dad and I went out to brunch at my favorite breakfast place The Lazy Loggerhead. We had planned to go look at a possible barn for Eros next winter, but it's in a gated community, and apparently you need an appointment to visit. So that didn't happen. Maybe next time.
It was a pretty relaxing day. The weather was perfect, so I sat outside and caught up on blogs for awhile.
Monday was travel day, so not much to chat about there. I was home early enough that I could have ridden Eros, but the barn is closed on Mondays. Boo. Fortunately, I have a bunch of time to use up at work (we can't roll any over) so I had taken Tuesday off too. It was really lovely to have a day off at home. I rode Eros, gave the boys extra good groomies, bought the groceries, and worked on holiday stuff. Girl could get used to not going to work... If only someone would just pay me to live my life...
Today was back to the grind at work. Wednesdays are always busy, but when you have a Wednesday that's also a Monday? It was killer. Hopefully the rest of the week is quieter and I can catch up on what you've all been up to!
Tuesday, December 4, 2018
While I was gone, my customers were relentless, and made me do a bunch of work while I was supposed to be on vacation. Annoying. But there was still a ton of stuff I couldn't do remotely. So now I have to head in early tomorrow to get that done before Wednesday happens.
Needless to say, I'm also behind on reading all of your blogs! I managed to get caught up over the weekend, but here I am, behind again. Sheesh. After the holidays, things calm down though. So I'll just keep chipping away on work, present shopping (and wrapping), and blog stuff until life gets back on track!
How's your holiday season treating you? Are things crazy? Or do you magically have everything under control? If that's the case, what's your secret?!

Happy outfit day! I'm heading down to Florida for a long weekend, so I think this is my first post done entirely from a tablet... Hopefully it goes ok!
Edit: Annoyingly glitchy on the tablet! It did not go ok. I am finishing it at home in Florida. Boo.
I'll start with my travel outfit since I titled this the travel edition.
Comfy clothes for airplane is a must!
Top: Ronner Design
Modcloth calls this sweater the Airport Cardigan, so I figured I should wear it there, right? I have it in a few colors. I like that it's cute open or closed. You already know of my love for Ronner shirts. This is my last one to show you guys. (Until I buy more, let's be real.)
Belt: Tory Burch
I think you've seen this one a bunch. I got it at the Tory Burch outlet a few years ago. It's soft, gold, and shiny! What more could you want?
Jeans: Seven Jeans
The heavy, tan stitching on these feels really horsey to me, so I thought they were perfect to pair with the pony shirt.
Socks: Blue Q
I don't normally share my socks, but I heart these. Pardon the language...
I LOVE Sechelles shoes. They're pretty and they're also comfortable which is not an easy combo to find. They can be expensive, but I've always found them on sale for reasonable prices.
My arms decided to be fancy pantsy today since I'm heading to fancy pants Florida. Lefty is donning a (secondhand) leather bracelet from Louis Vuitton along with my trusty apple watch.
Righty is donning an H bracelet along with a couple actual Hermes arm pieces. The wrap bracelet was a gift from my dad and stepmom a few years ago, and the other I got on Poshmark.
That's what I wore to travel today! But I also have a riding outfit to share!
That's a very tired, post lesson me.
Helmet: One K
That's a slightly less tired pre-lesson me....
Jacket, vest, and top: Eddie Bauer
This jacket and vest are the same as the black ones I've worn the last few weeks, just in a pretty teal color. I really love these. They're super warm, but not bulky. And I've had both sets for a few years now, without them showing much wear.
Belt: Harry's Horse
I recently jumped on the rose gold bandwagon with full force... So clearly, I needed this pretty rose gold and black bit belt.
Breeches: Harry's Horse
I found these on Tack Dealz awhile back. I got these and a navy pair, and I really love both. The fit is perfect, and they have just the right amount of stretch. I think the streaky paint-like details are super fun too.
Boots: TuffRider Regal
Yeah, I'm still sticking with the old comfies for lessons. Don't want to be distracted by partially broken in boots.
And that's it for today! I have a relaxing weekend ahead. I don't think I'll get to do any riding down here this year, but I'm still going to visit my trainer and maybe the horse show. So that will be fun and get me my horsey fix!
Any favorites from today? Did you snag any horsey clothes deals last weekend?
