A Big Monster at My House!!! (Weekend in Pictures)

Jay's parents have a farm and lots of animals. I married a true country boy, and I LOVE it!! We got to go riding on Labor Day. Forgot my boots that day!

I love this picture because it makes me look like a true horsewoman, which I truly am not. haha Yes, I'm from the Bluegrass State, home of the Kentucky Derby. But I've had a fear of horses ever since my horseback riding class in college, where my horse's name was Goliath. He was a goliath - completely HUGE! And stubborn! He sensed my fear and often disobeyed and did things to strike terror in me! But this sweet little horse is gentle & cute. Her name is Lady.

Here's the true horseman. I love to watch Jay ride. He's so at ease on a horse, and it makes me excited for him to teach our kids to ride someday.

I used my lovely NY&Co coupon to get this outfit! Everything is new except the shoes. And I was super excited to find jeans that I actually LIKE!! Have y'all heard of the Premium Flare Jean? It was voted the "Universal Best Jean for EVERY Body Type" by SELF magazine. I was skeptical b/c I struggle with finding the right jean. But it turns out that I love them!

Do any of you love pie? I do like them. But I think I like making them even more than eating them. I made this one completely from scratch! Here's what's on the inside:

Here we've got the vanilla filling cooking on the stove, the homemade crust with the bananas cut up in the middle, and the meringue over to the side. It's a banana cream pie.

Jay & I decided to go feed the ducks at a beautiful park about 30 minutes away. We got there with our 3 loaves of bread, but alas, there were no hungry duckies to be found. :(

So we just goofed around and took some pics instead. Too bad this ugly fence is in the way. They were doing some construction. But you can see how pretty the park is.

And now, for the monster that came to my house.....

We looked out our window and saw this ratty looking creature! It's a possom! And he's been eating my little kitty's food! It was crunching the food real loud and then sauntered off with a full belly. I'm hoping he doesn't come back! But Frisk's bowl was suspiciously completely clean yesterday evening. Looks like he may have visited again.

I had a wonderful weekend, and I hope you did too!

And now, I hope we all have a wonderful week!
