Busy Busy Busy !

Sorry it's been so long in between posts, but wow this has been a crazy busy week. I had my 2nd Hypno appointment with the therapist to stop smoking. I am 11 days of Nicotine Deprivation today.


Starting the weekend with these little numbers I made on Friday. The BBFF was having a St. Pattys Day party and I decided to make cupcakes. They look yummy just plain !
Here is after ! They had little green shamrocks and gold nugget sprinkles. So cute if I do say so myself ! Cream Cheese frosting is calorie free FYI.

So while the cupcakes were baking, I was cleaning and tagging my stuff for the 4-H Canby Tack sale next weekend. A friend is having a booth, and has nicely offered to sell some stuff for me so I can buy a new barrel saddle for Star.

I cleaned and tagged all this stuff while baking.. I still had more stuff at the barn ! Too much stuff! I don't have alot of tack, I'm not a tack collector, I prefer minimal stuff I use everyday, and one set for showing. Well, since I probably won't be showing this year I'm selling all my show items, and anything I never use.
So lets pray for a good turn out at the sale, I really want to buy a new saddle, and I need all of this to sell to pay for a large portion of it! This is how I keep my expenses in check. IF I want something new, I have to get rid of something else or five. I have the money to just go buy a a new saddle, but I prefer this method of raising the money. I'm going to be having a major blow out garage sale in Spring to pay for my horse trailer repairs and paint.
So this was just Friday!!
Post more about Saturdays festivities later !

Hmmm, Jocelyn, I hear ya about the Expo. There is so much going on that weekend. I've opted to do the expo on Friday, the tack sale early on Saturday, have some people to go watch at Spring Into Dressage Saturday afternoon, then Clackamas county rodeo court coronation Saturday night, and back to the expo on Sunday. Won't be any riding for me this coming weekend!

I have too much tack. I should seriously think about selling some of it, shouldn't I?
