Pony Pony Pony (oh yeah, I’m getting married in 2 weeks)

Pony Pony Pony (oh yeah, I’m getting married in 2 weeks)

I went to see Teaspoon today, and loved him.  Going to ride him some more, and need to do some number crunching and barn hunting.  His owner is really sweet, and genuinely loves her horses so it’s always really great to deal with people like that.  I’ve been around horses enough to know that anything can happen and not to get my hopes up, but I’m going to go out again this week and ride. In other highly important (probably…

Going to see a man about a horse

Going to see a man about a horse

I’m going to look at a lease horse tomorrow. This is probably the worst time ever for me to go look at a lease horse.  I’m getting married in two weeks, and there is SO MUCH to do that I’m starting to freak out.  To top it all off, I have a cold that’s really getting me down.  So there’s ton to do, but I don’t feel up to 100% to actually do it. Financially, I can afford it but…

Wishing for WEG

Wishing for WEG

I had a really nice weekend here in Austin.  Took my first motorcycle ride ever, went for a nice long walk with the dogs today… all of which I’ll write about later this week.  But a part of me is really wanting to be in Lexington, Kentucky right now for the World Equestrian Games.  This is the best of the best world equestrian competition, more competitive than the Olympics and it’s a BIG DEAL for it to be held in…

What I’m Reading – September

What I’m Reading – September

I finished Kitchen Confidential earlier this month, and although my love for Anthony Bourdain runs deeply… my fondness for that book did not.  I do like his writing style, which I figured I would since I enjoy his narration of the TV show.  I like to write non-fiction type essays, and even when I write fiction I have this conversational tone that rambles on in different directions but (hopefully) keeps it engaging and flavorful.  He has a very similar style. …

Photography Friday – Texas Hill Country

Photography Friday – Texas Hill Country

I’m trying to get better about getting out and taking pictures more often.  Have way too much camera equipment to waste sitting around.  Of course, a little weekend getaway is the perfect excuse for that.  Here’s an assortment of pictures from our Labor Day weekend trip to Fredericksburg, Texas and Enchanted Rock State Park.

Poneh, Poneh, Poneh, Poneh

I suppose it’s obvious that I haven’t been around blogging all that much.  There are lots of reasons for this, but the obvious reasons are I got this crazy job and I’ve had ponies on the brain.  More on the crazy job later, but we’ll start with the ponies. Valentine I found Valentine off of Craig’s list, which means that she’s what we snooty horse people like to call a “backyard horse”.  And this turned out to be true since…

Toy Story 3: Be kind to your toys

Toy Story 3: Be kind to your toys

I’ve been begging my lovely SO to go see Toy Story 3 with me for a few weeks.  To his credit, he’s a good sport and we tried to go once but it was sold out.  Luckily for me, his mom wanted to go see it too so we headed to the awesome Prytania Theatre in New Orleans.  The best thing about the Prytania (besides the sticky movie theatre candy floors of course) are the retro snack commercials they play…
