Palm to Head

Palm to Head

I could write a lot about what’s been going on in the last month, but I’m not. If I did, it would be a mashup of margaritas, anxiety, bad dates, long walks, mental health and palm trees. Maybe soon, but today I want to talk about headaches. My mom has always suffered from migraines. When we were little kids, she would get quiet in the car and tell us that she wasn’t feeling well. After that it was the fastest…

Adventures with Sleep Apnea II

Adventures with Sleep Apnea II

When I last left you, my doctor had an inkling that I had sleep apnea after months of issues with my tonsils and sleeping. Today I conclude that tale! The night of my actual sleep study, I came home with a small computer around my neck and wires everywhere. There was one around a belt on my chest, one around a belt on my waist, one attached to my index finger and a tube coming from my nostrils. Normally I…

The Darkness in Dreaming

The Darkness in Dreaming

It’s been a while since I’ve had strange dreams about my late husband. For months they came in clusters that I couldn’t control. I hadn’t thought much about those past dreams until I re-read the blog post I just linked, and the content of those dreams is so much darker than I remembered. It’s painful for me to read it now almost a year after publication. I can’t imagine how ya’ll felt reading it back then. For the most part the…

Why Dream?

Why Dream?

“Thank you for being patient while I go through literally every horse option like a crazy person,” I told my trainer when I spoke to her on the phone Friday morning. She laughed at me. Truth is, I’ve been coming up with grand ideas for a while. Most I haven’t blogged about, though some I have. No matter what kind of crazy horse scheme I came up with, they all involved hard choices. Sometimes it’s a financial sacrifice, because I…

Dreams Dreams Dreams

I’ve been having crazy dreams lately. This isn’t a new thing for me in life as I’ve always been a bit of a dreamer. As a kid, I had a recurring dream where I was hanging out with a group of cool, older kids on a road trip to go see a killer whale in an aquarium. I would always wake up right before I got to swim in the tank with the orca and fulfill my life dream. After…

The Tale of the French Blue Breeches

The Tale of the French Blue Breeches

Once upon a time, I made very questionable fashion choices when it came to the equestrian world. This is partially due to funds.  In college, I had money for board + farrier + a few lesson and a few small shows.  That was a huge luxury and only possible with the help of my parents and several part time jobs.  There just wasn’t anything left over for fancy schooling clothes, and I was fine with that. But I still wanted fancy schooling…

Goal Building Intensified

Goal Building Intensified

This is not another 2015 goal or goal progression post, even though I’m going to mention my 2015 goals.  Basically my equestrian self confidence was pretty low when I made my 2015 goals this year.  I think they’re valid and I plan to stick to them, but I definitely took it easy on myself when I wrote them down.  I was afraid to utter anything “too big” because I thought it was ridiculous to declare such a thing to the…

The $100,000 Question

The $100,000 Question

Thought this was too fun not to participate… especially since I’m eating pb&j all Q1 to pay off my credit card and hopefully soon new saddle.  From An Eventful Life! Imagine someone gave you $100,000 free and clear. Assume taxes are already taken care of and you can spend the whole amount. The catch: you have to spend the whole amount on horse-related things. What do you buy? Much to my husband’s dismay, the game is to do horsey expenses…

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Expand Your Inner Princess

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Expand Your Inner Princess

Well kids, it’s been a fun ride.  We’ve had 10 weeks of hunter princessness.  10 weeks!  That’s like… more than a gestation period for a human baby if it were 9 weeks instead of 9 months!  Okay, really bad analogy.  This has been fun to host, but I’m going to step down as hunter blog hop queen. For our last post, I want y’all to have a lot of fun with it. What would you do/change if you had no…

Blog Hop – Equestrian Bucket List

Blog Hop – Equestrian Bucket List

Little Bay Princess is hosting a blog hop, and the topic is your Equestrian Bucket list! I’ve blogged about my bucket list before, but it’s a lot of fun to think about.  This year has opened up new opportunities for me riding wise, and made me believe in myself a bit more… maybe there’s more I’d even like to accomplish than I previously thought! Here is my original list: My Equestrian Bucket List Show at least 2’6″ at an A/AA show,…
