taking pictures of bubbles is a science

k, so last post i was all about my amazing cinnamon-steusel muffins, so last night when i was gonna get together with some old friends, i was totally, "yeah, i'll make some cookies, i'm on such a baking kick!!" well. let's just say they did not turn out as well as the muffins. baking cookies = epic fail. :( anyway... moving on.

the other day, we were amusing ourselves by blowing bubbles with dawn dishsoap and wire coat hangers. (how recession-friendly!) i tried to take pictures of them, but i eventually figured out the trick is to push the shutter button as you blow the bubble, before it has time to pop.

more (fashion-related) bubble pics...
and this was the reason i was all happy-happy-joy-joy in the last post, i got to go horseback riding for the first time in forever! yipee! :)

this is lucky girl, she's 22 (!) and super-sweet (usually she works with disabled kids!). :)
and wow, do i looks small in this picture or what! and in case anyone's interested, shorts, levi's; t-shirt, junk food; and shoes, converse.

so we went to visit our friends that live on a horse farm, they actually live in a loft about a stable! which is awesome, because (as you can see the from the picture above,) horses can stick their heads out of the bottom of your house. how cool is that? (and it's a fully-furnished house, don't worry, not some icky hay loft or something.)

and of course, being a horse farm and all, everything was equestrian-themed: the mailboxes, the benches, and there were all these statues of carousel horses. (photo-op!)

and this is cowboy, the vegetarian dog. i think he deserved some recognition too. :)

it was loads of fun. :) and on a totally unrelated note, i kinds want a pair of cowboy boots. this pair from wetseal (or maybe this pair?), to be specific. which has nothing to do with the fact i've been spending a lot of time with horses. really. and i prolly wouldn't wear them with jeans (or-god forbid!-a plaid shirt!), just dresses and things like that. see?



whew! that was a loooooong post. if you made it this far, thanks for listening to me ramble about my life. kisses! <3>
