weekend recap

It's been pretty well rounded, I must say!
First a couple of outtakes from the mini photoshoot with Angus.
I love his face in this first one, but what on earth am I doing?
Look closely you can see my remote.
I have to figure out how people disguise that thing.
This one is just an out and out blooper!
He is like "I'm so over this Mom!"
Friday was girl day for Mom, Alex & I. We had a little outing to Mountain Home.
Stopped by first to see Judy and Granny. Judy was sick and certainly wasn't going.
Granny was doing really well and we hoped she would come with us, but she just didn't feel up to it.

Next stop was Fred's Fish House in Mountain Home to meet up with Haley & Cindy.
It was a planned lunch for Haley's graduation and Fred's was her choice.
Good choice, too, it was delightful.

Haley's friend Cera (prounounced like Sarah - cool huh?) came with them and we enjoyed meeting her and hearing all of Haley's fun stories & antics!
She's attending college in the Fall and I am very proud of her for sticking with her plan of entering the medical field, possibly nursing.
Go Haley!

Isn't she gorgeous! Her eyes have always been stunning.
Plus she introduced me to this hilarious You Tube video quite awhile ago:
Can I have you number? Hiiiiiii-larious!

We then did our shopping for an outfit for Alex and finally had success.
I wondered for awhile though.

A really good day spent with the girls.
Everyone needs those girl days every once in awhile.

Saturday was....you guessed it.....horseshow! Hurrah!

I totally loved how the sunset looked yesterday, despite the power lines.
Did not get my camera out much oddly.
Maybe it's because I was too busy getting sunburned. OUCH.
Just a perfect day - temp in the high 70's low 80's with a great breeze.
This is a little boy, Austin, who shows with us, climbing on the fence.
I love how worn out his boots are.
BTW, he was using them for a sand and rock bucket earlier in the day!

sshhhhh, don't tell his momma!
I must say this was probably the very best show Alex has ever had in all her horseshow years. She won 4 or 5 classes and placed 2nd and 4th in the others.
The coolest thing was winning this ladies' gaited class!
Riding a gaited horse is a new venture for her and she was been driving once a week to her friend Justin's Dad's to practice on Caveman, who is
this beautiful Tennessee Walker who very much knows what he's doing!

Alex is definitely learning and improving. She looked great last night.
Sunday was spent at church and a quick drive to Batesville in search of a particular frame for one of my Country Text prints that a lady purchased from me at work, and of course my new favorite Sunday afternoon pasttime: napping.

I have not done much with my Etsy shop for Country Text since Christmas.
Why? you ask.
I really have no idea!
The biggest issue is my inability to find specific frames for the size words/names people want. I don't know if you know this, but custom framing is really expensive which kind of defeats my whole idea of actually making a profit of these things!

I do think I might put my individual prints up for sale again and see what happens.

Oh, btw, there is a challenge going on over at Crazy Daisy Kit Co. blog.
Check it out.
I did some scrapbooking with my June CDK kit over the weekend and will post those layouts soon.

I like Cera, and have also seen it spelled Cyrah, which I like too! Sounds like a fun weekend. Wish I got burned a little. You'd think that living in the desert I'd get burned all the time, huh? I need to work on that!

Hey there,
I've been catching up on you now that I've got my new computer. I've also updated my blogs.
Alex is gorgeous. I can't believe you don't have to have the shotgun out yet!
