Trail Riding..

Trail riding. Taking your horse on an adventure on a beautiful and sunny day. What a beautiful, relaxing and adventurous thing to do. My favorite new "Mommy" alone time thing to do as well. My new horse is great on the trail and she is the perfect horse to hop on bareback, bitless and ride down the river bar, which happens to be a couple blocks away from her pasture. I could get lost all day with her, discovering new trails and taking in the scenery, if I had time. I know what I am going to be doing when my kids grow up! Next weekend, my husband and I decided to get a sitter and take our first trail ride together. Granted, he take our 3 year old mare who may be a bit spooky as she is inexperienced, but thats ok! He needs to bond with her anyway! Haha. Here is a cute pic collage I made after our trail ride.

Kids,Horses and Puppies!

Wow, it has been a long time since I last posted! Let me just say I have been a little... busy? Knox is not only walking now, but he is full on running, climbing and getting into everything he can! That boy is full of life! He is such a joy, but he is still the biggest momma's boy ever, meaning he loves me to carry him everywhere I go, sleep with him even at nap time, literally do everything with him. Now, as much as I would love to do all of this, I have two other kiddo's that need attention too, so needless to say, it can be hectic around here! Boy do I love him though, he is so, so sweet.

 On another note, Lexi just got finished with her 7 week ballet session and will start again in April. She loved it, however, I feel that she has too much energy to only do ballet. As much as I have dreams of a little ballerina, so graceful, my daughter's favorite thing to do in ballet class was jump and run. Maybe gymnastics would be good for her, or soccer? I will have to look into that one.

 Everett is reading amazingly now! He is starting to read chapter books, I am so proud of him. I took him to Target on Friday to choose a bunch of new books and he was ecstatic! Makes me so happy to see my first grader developing and learning so quickly all of a sudden. His little charter school has really done wonders as well!

So my love for horses is just growing and growing apparently because somehow I ended up with three of them total as of three weeks ago! I love them all, and they all have their very own special personalities. My new mare is a grey, flea bitten Arabian. She is a beautiful 7 year old mare who was rescued from a feed lot, destined for slaughter. She is still a little scared but warming up to me and I think we are going to have an amazing friendship! Horses are such beautiful and majestic and STRONG animals. I don't see how I lived with out them for so long.Speaking of animals, we are also getting a puppy in a couple months. A Bluetick Hound, who has not been born yet. SO EXCITED! I haven't told the kiddos yet because I know they will be in puppy heaven when they see her, and I want them to be surprised.

Life is going great! Busy, but that is the way I like it. One more thing... I started selling Arbonne, which is an all natural, botanical, plant based AND clinically proven beauty, skin care, and nutrition line. They also have all natural baby products! I will be writing more about Arbonne later but I will add my website which is Check it out!! I LOVE this stuff!
