About two years ago I left my old barn to follow my coach to her new adventure as a barn owner. I've been with her for years and years! Sheri is my inspiration. So now I am proud to say I ride at Gosling Stables. I am the proud part boarder of Molson Canadian. I've been part boarding him over a year now and I am so happy to have a connection with him like I do. He is a true honest horse that just wants to please! This barn is heaven on earth! Everyone gets along. There's zero drama and we all support each other. Since my fall I've been jumping less because I was scared. I only very recently started jumping courses again. Yet me doing a little single fence at a trot, all the girls were there to cheer me on because we actually care about each other. We want each other to do well. It's such a warm and loving environment.

Today I wanted to post a bit of what I've been doing lately. At the Pet Valu that I work at we work closely with a wonderful cat rescue. Basically this woman Lori and all her vollenteers go into high kill shelters and remove ones that are listed for euthanasia. They are heroes. The amount of lives they have saved and change are uncountable. Soon they will be having an online auction to raise money for the charity. As soon as it's posted I will be sharing the link.
This guy is names Jimbo. He's three years old and is FIV +. He is very friendly and is looking for a home! Spread the word and break the stigma.

My new addiction is called "decoden". Mostly used on phone cases but I did manage to do a mini purse mirror. The Doctor Who case is for my friend Brianna and a couple of these went to my sister. I kinda think maybe I could sell them. Once I get a bit better at doing this, its pretty easy but the pieces fall off after a couple months and the cream stuff turns dark and dirty looking. Hopefully I can fix these problems. :) Any comments are welcome!!
I can't believe how long its been since I've made a post. Since my last post was about my four year anniversary with my love, and its about 5 and a half years that we've been together now. I'm working full time now and am extremely proud of myself. Dealing with bipolar disorder has held me back a lot but I'm getting there. It just takes a bit longer.
I switched barns, followed my coach to the best place ever, left the awful place we were at. Got a new horse, we just had our one year together. His name is MOLSON and he is stunning, isnt he??
I can't wait to post again!
I can't wait to post again!

I am so excited that my Kawaii stationary has finally come in the mail, (part one anyways) more to come for sure. Anyways I have always loved this stuff, in fact, as a child, I thought I was asian. I know thats weird but I never really had a culture to follow so I would try and mimic my friends, so I celebrated Chinese New Years, tried to learn Mandarin, it didn't work. Anyways I've also always loved paper:p Lately theres this trend of filofaxing. I can't afford a 90 dollar planner but I have my fake one and I'm trying to make it fun. Most people fill them with little Kawaii stickers and stuff. I am obsessed. :) It just sucks to pay the massive shipping on these items. Anyways heres what I got from an etsy store. If anyone knows where to get similar stuff please let me know! Ps taken on an iPhone because my camera is officially DONE :( But I'm getting my sisters old one :) sorry. I can't wait for my next shipment to come in!
|Sticky notes on the right:) the stickers on the left were I guess a free gift and I love them! :) I guess its the same little girl? Shes so cute and tiny. <3|
|Cute litte stickers!|
|Sticker tape things! So adorable|
|Post it notes. SO cute! Im dying|
Well it was my second show of the season (I'm way behind from my appendix) but oh well, I was really happy to be able to compete to begin with. So it was another Teen Ranch show, and finally things seemed to be going well, I like going first and I got to! The show started on time and as always we do the jumping parts in trips of 3. So there are two trips, one for each jumping class and three people compete their first, then they do their second. After that the next group goes so on and so forth. I did my first trip and it was PERFECT. (by that I mean it was perfect for me and Nifty, one chip in!!) Chip ins are a big deal for us and we got only one, that was such an accomplishment! I went in for my second trip and things were going so well, untill the last two jumps. I fell off. Im not really sure what happened, I lost my stirrup and went down, I hit my head and woke up a few minutes later. I don't really remember much. So we went to the paramedics and they sent us to E.R.! I was told I have a minor concussion, pinched nerves in my neck and soft tissue damage. I got a text while in the hospital saying I placed in the first class! 3rd place! After the hospital we went to get it :) I was really pleased! Anyways. This is just my luck, its funny because the whole way up I listened to a song by Sugar Land " It happens" and finally I just need to agree with them" shhhhhIT happens"
