Take a deep seat and let 'em WALK ON!

Hello Bloggers!

Well, Kellen and I made it back from the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration this afternoon. I had never been to see any of the show and it was really lots of fun! I even got to ride one of the flat shod horses this afternoon. I definitely felt a little awkward because even though I have ridden horses my who life there horses are much different than mine!

If you can see in the picture, they took an extra blue ribbon that was laying around and put it on this poor mare's bridle. I decided that they "tied" me first because I didn't fall off! We had a great time and I learned a lot about Walking Horse shows. I am sure that I drove Kellen crazy because every five minutes I had a different question. She was very patient however and an awesome teacher! Check out the pictures below from our weekend.

Anyway, we are back to the real world as of right now. Drew and I are figuring out our plans for the week and as of right now, our priority is the grocery store. I mean, there is NO FOOD in our house. I expect that we'll take care of that tomorrow evening.

I must say though, my priority for this week is to NOT eat like I ate this weekend. Horseshows really should revolve around horses and not the food!

I hope that you all have a great week!

Our fun weekend...

Hello All!

I hope that you all had a great weekend like I did. The bad thing is that I always feel like I need a weekend to recover from my weekend. Very sad, I know. We didn't do much Friday night and Saturday I woke up early to head to the lake. I'd like to say that I was the motivated one in the Richey household, but I definitely do not hold that title for Saturday. My crazy hubby rode his bicycle 44 miles. Yes, rode a bicycle 44 MILES... Crazy. I am actually very proud of him, he is training for triathlon number 2. He did his first race in June and the next one is next month in Lebanon TN. I know that he will do great!

Anyway, I made it to the lake about lunch and spent the rest of the day with my family. I didn't take any pictures of Scoot, but I wish I had. She played in the lake for a solid hour, barking at the waves and chasing any stick that was thrown. She had SOOOOO much fun. However, she was absolutely filthy. She was covered in lake water and sand. Needless to say, I had to give her a bath outside of the motorhome because Mom wouldn't let her in!

Anyway, this should be a good week, and I'm excited about this weekend's plans... I am heading to the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration with my friend Kellen... I know, walking horses... pretty crazy coming from a Quarter Horse girl!

Oh well, have a great week!

oh gosh... I guess I have already sucked at this :)

Well Blogger Land,

I guess that I have done a really crappy job at updating this thing. I hate to admit it, but I've been a little wrapped up. Really, what I have been wrapped up in is pretty silly, but apparently its very normal. Everybody at my work has gone through it and so have most of my friends. That makes me feel less like a dork. We'll see if you can figure it out by this picture...

Well, if you guess Twilight then you are absolutely correct! It started on our way home from Florida and has pretty much lasted until about now. I have read all four books, listened to the soundtrack more times than necessary, and watched the movie about 3 times. Yes, something's wrong with me... but really, I love Edward :)

Anyway, enough of that. We bought a new toy last night. We jumped on the PS3 (Playstation) band wagon because it seemed like a better option than just buying another Blu Ray player... That, of course, is a whole nother story! Drew is in love and I have no idea how to use it!

Scooter & I are going to the lake this weekend to stay a night with Mom & Dad. That should be fun and maybe I'll get motivated and take my camera to take pictures of my little wild animal. I know that she and Rudy will have a huge time!

Have a great beautiful weekend!
