Clif Z-Bar says hey.


Hey girl, hey!

Upon arriving home from work , (late I might add) I discovered much to my dismay, that Skipper was limping about the pasture. Actually, she wasn’t limping so much as just standing there looking all sad.

So I gathered her up and set her foot to soaking.


While that was going on, I decided she could use a bath.


All soapy and sad, foot in the bucket.

Yes, that is human shampoo.


Mama D.’s in fact. Shhhh, don’t tell.

Luckily for me horses dry pretty quickly.


Like new, she is, and Mama D. shall never know her shampoo went a-missing!

Of course one look in these eyes and how could she say no?



Soon our photo session was over, so I returned my love to her stall where she could chat with her friends.


With friends like these, who needs enemies?


Give me some of that hay!! How did you score a stall!?! Ol’ Gimp Leg. 😛

That taken care of, I set out on a ride. A bike ride, that is. I went 10 miles, and came home, sweaty and hungry.

I knew just what I wanted.


Pesto + Penne!

After seeing Betsy make pesto with broccoli, well that was right up this chick’s alley, so I knew where my bag of broccoli was going.

I didn’t use the whole bag. Just half.


The other half is for lunch tomorrow.

I added an orange to the side.


It was on it’s last leg. I did it a favor. It was surely headed to the compost otherwise.

I ended my meal on this sweet note:


A fantastic fruit and oatmeal thing baked by Mama D., supplier of horse shampoo.

What a jack lady of all trades that woman is!

And she doesn’t even know it.


Proverbs 25:21 (The Message)

If you see your enemy hungry, go buy him lunch; if he’s thirsty, bring him a drink. Your generosity will surprise him with goodness, and God will look after you.

I’m hoping Mama D. feels real generous with her shampoo when she reads this.

I’m a lovin’ these swag titles.

Sorry if you don’t.


Today’s snack was a Pure bar from my HLS swag bag.


Like Caitlin would say; Nom, nom, nom.

After I chowed this bar, it started raining; but alls well that ends well, and by the time I got home it was gone. Linden and I had planned a little photo shoot, so we jetted off to Julie’s and I rocked some poses. I will post the link for your viewing pleasure once she has posted them, cause there is nothing better than a camera whore with a baby sister who loves photography.

Once done with that shiz, I jumped on the ol’ bike for a few sweaty miles. I’m no Megan or Kelly, but I like to bike. Seriously, kudos to those two for rocking an awesome FIFTY mile bike ride together today.

Then I came back to the kitch for a little snacky snack dinner.


I mainly focused on the carrots,


hummus, corn chile,


and pita chips.

I left the pickles alone, and headed over to the apples.


My new friends joined me.


Hello Meghan!


Come get me, it’s dangerous here!

Don’t worry, he will be fine. Mwahahahaha.

I got a genius hair and broiled a naner.


Topped it with Barney Butter, and called it dessert.

So good, you could eat it with a spoon. Oh that’s right.

I did.


So I know it’s been a while since I shared a verse with you guys. I am kind of feeling it tonight though.

Let’s check out Proverbs, shall we?

Proverbs 17:9 (The Message)

Overlook an offense and bond a friendship; fasten on to a slight and—good-bye, friend!

I’ve made so many new friends in the last few months, through the blog, church and my job. I need to remind myself of this verse, because it is so IMPORTANT in any relationship, but especially friendship. I have had quite a few friendships go awry because I was offended.

What about you? Have you ever lost a great friend over something that was petty and nonsensical in the long run?


In other blog news:

For some great reads, check out Betsy’s blog. I was lucky enough to meet her at HLS, and she is just as awesome in real life as she is on her blog. Love that girl.

Also, the parfait queen, K is giving away a pretty clean cookbook in this post.
