Here are a few of my favorite things (if you have Julie Andrews singing in your head now, you are welcome)!
We know Amanda (the900facebookpony.com)has steered me to a lot of my purchases. But she has good taste I give her that!! My wallet may hate her but she never steers me wrong! HA!
Mango Bay Belts
Mango Bay belts are amazing! For not being a belt person I now have four or five of these. Love them, they are good with jeans or breeches and they are comfy and attractive. Win-Win! Thanks Amanda for showing me them in 2016 at FHI!
Another Amanda-influenced purchase (IS there a therapy group? There should be!) but I do love how this Eponia Cookie bridle (it is a combo brown and black and is even sharper in person) looks on Remus and love the leather and shhh actually want another just brown one to go with the new saddle…..I think I need help.
IT IS ON ITS WAY! (This is not the actual saddle but what it looks like from Stubben site!). Stubben is having its holiday sale. And they actually had one of the Zaria Optimum Monoflaps in Remus’ size and my size. GULP after paying for it, I promptly went into a fetal ball. It has a 29 tree, a 17.5 seat, has biomex seat which I LOVE and is a monoflap. These monoflaps were so out of my league in cost, I was looking at the other models in the sale then found this one (I actually found two on the site and hemmed and hawed over which one to buy). And it actually cost a lot less than I thought it would. I am sure it being a demo, it will need some TLC but if it works how excited will you all be to get me to SHUT UP about searching for a saddle!
I go back and forth between EXCITEMENT and HORROR that I spent so much. It is on the UPS truck right now and should be here today (fingers crossed)! I have seven days to make sure it works for both of us. I am still so skeptical that I might have found something. But if it works it will definitely be one of my favorite things! For sure! Oh, I just got this text while writing this blog on Sunday!
|Hi, you have a package coming tomorrow.|
I have lots of other favorite things: My Majyk Equipe boots (both original flavor and PURPLE), my Kerrits blue show coat, my One K helmet with sunglasses no less, my MDC stirrups, and my ROMFH show shirt with magnetic collar (Cool and clever, all in one shirt). I know there is more!!
Listing all this I realize the only thing Amanda didn’t make me buy was the helmet (found on Tack of the Day) and the show shirt (found on Riding Warehouse so definitely still Amanda’s fault).
Hope all had a great weekend! I have a busy week up ahead if the weather cooperates. Lesson with Sally on Wed, CC schooling with Sally Saturday maybe, and a Paper Chase on Sunday! YAY!
