4 Hats

The hats that killed my mojo. Do NOT get me wrong, I was very happy to make these hats, and I love the people that they went to. Unfortunately, knitting the same hat in the same color four times in a row was a bit boring, and I haven't felt like knitting for a while. I have a strict rule of NEVER forcing myself to knit when I don't feel like it. So I pick up my knitting when I want to, and I leave it laying when I don't. In the meantime, I have officially lost my 20 lbs and am no longer on a diet but on maintenance, and I have been spending every bit of good weathered free time with my horse. Show season is on the horizon, and we are both trying to get prepared. Lots of work but lots of fun :)

My Birthday

I must say that I had one of the best birthdays EVER! The only way it could have been better is if Rob could have been there. I went out to eat with four of my friends from the barn, and we had a blast as you can probably tell from the picture above :) From left to right is Carissa, Marietta, Melissa, and Heather. Yes the crazy fool (note the sweater, wink) they are holding up is me of course. Thank God I lost 19 lbs for this moment!

I loved all my gifts! I got a Brighton bracelet, a horsey coloring book (and crayons) in which everyone colored a page to look like their horse, fun cards, a horse puzzle, gloves for riding, and a Black Beauty dvd ya'll!! What was so cool was how horse related it all was. I swear it was the birthday party I dreamed of when I was a little girl. I felt like a kid all over again. Even our waitress had horses. We made her sit down with us and have a piece of cake, which was made by Melissa (as well as my own personal baby cake) and was quite delicious I might add. Thanks so much girls for making my day so special!! You made turning 33 a whole lot easier than I thought it would be! I'm blessed to have such wonderful friends :)

Pictures soooon

Ok so I've knit 4 hats and made a ton of bracelets. I'm actually quite proud of the bracelets. I still can't show you until they make it to their recipients.

Things have been going really well for me. I have been getting out to the barn as much as possible. I guess that's the main reason it has been so quiet here on the blog. All I really have to talk about is my horse. It's actually kind of funny, I have always loved horses, but I had no idea that I would become quite so obsessed. I had only known one person in my life that owned a horse, so I wasn't quite prepared for the obsession. DC and I have been doing a lot of bonding. He comes to me when he hears me call at the gate. I guess he has finally figured it out that we belong to each other :)

In other news, I turn 33 on Thursday, and I decided to go nuts with my hair! Does that make me a cliche? I have been on this whole beautification kick for a while. I started losing weight and getting in better shape. I have lost 19lbs so far! Then got on this awesome skin care system prescribed by my dermatologist. I really feel better, and I think I'm starting to look better too. Here are some pictures Rob took of me :D It was fun goofing off and taking fun pics of my fun new hair!
