Quarter Horse Congress was awesome! Not only do these gals put on a great show, but the whole atmosphere of the real horse showers, the food, and the shopping make this show a must do every year. However, I do have to leave the hubby in charge at home. Being a great dad, he went and got Payton and Mieka's Halloween costumes. Payton will be one of the characters from Monster High, and Mieka is Sparky from Frankenweine, not sure which of them likes their costume more. What is so funny is that Mieka actually loves to put outfits on, such a little princess!

Hard to believe the first quarter of school is already done....the last couple of weeks ended up being a crunch at work, but a fun crunch. My Chemistry II class got to make fireworks (safely) in the new lab, something we never could have done last year, got my quarter assessment written, survived Homecoming week, and FINALLY managed to make something I have always wanted...a pebbles scale parade set!
What Jen didn't mention is how much more I would rather trade for tack than make it. There is a lot of beer, bleeding fingers, and foul words involved when I make tack items, its NOT Purdy! But this is something I have been wanting to do and figured no one would really want to take this one on. Notice, no pink, no leopard...just zebra and lots of bling!
D'Arry gave me the rider that I customized to fit the set. I really am happy with how it turned out, but this in now way fixes my tack cravings. I did get an amazing pebble Australian set from Rachel that I didn't have time to photograph, but its just make the cravings worse and remind me of how much I enjoy getting tack from others!
