Girls Night Out!

One of my oldest friends is getting married in a week, so we had a get together last night for her bachelorette party!

Leslie, Becky, Brittany, Carrie, & Me

I'm pretty sure Brittany was my first friend ever. We took dance/tap together when we were little bitty children... Britt, you thought I forgot about the picture didn't you! :)

We also had sleep overs at my mema's house all the time. We played dress up in her old gowns, drew on the driveway with sidewalk chalk, and rode bikes until our little lets were about to fall off!

So, in celebration of Brittany, last night all of her bridesmaids (except one, Lindsay we missed you!) got together and went to dinner. We went to a fancy restaurant that put a hole in my pocket, but it was worth it because that was the best steak I've ever had and I got to spend time with great friends!

We came back to my house and played with all my puppies 

(how could Lola not get any attention from 5 girls!?)  and Brittany opened some lingerie! Ow ow! ;)

After asking Brittany some questions about the groom that we had gotten him to answer earlier, we ate cake and other snacks while talking about the excitement of the wedding that is less than a week away!!

So what do you think of this cake?
I know one thing, Mama Jan didn't make it! Although... she did give us a couple of pointers while we were mixing the batter! Thanks Mom!
Yep, Leslie and I made that! We are very proud of it! :)
I did the decorating... I must say, I take after my mother's skills!

We had a wonderful night. It was so much fun getting to spend time with friends and not have to worry about school!! I can't wait until Friday when I get to go get a pedicure and spend more time with these girls!

P.S.  If anyone wants a cake... I charge $50 cheaper than my mom ;)

Daily finding.

I solemnly swear I am up to no good.

As my dad said on a post on facebook...

"This dog has armadillo potential"

Free horse

So, I got a phone call about a 9 year old Quarter Horse mare that needed a home. For free.

How could I NOT go look at her?!

Well, I called the lady and talked to her about this mare and found at that she is a little hard to, catch and that she needed an experienced rider. She was good for the farrier and good to ride as long as you worked her in the round pen first. Well, I'm the type that saddles up my horse in the front yard and jumps on and says yee haw let's go! So I was a little turned off.

She was once owned by the state of Georgia, seized from an abused home, so they will need to know where she goes, check up on her, etc. That detoured a couple of people away from her to begin with.

I told the lady that I would be by on Wednesday to look at her and ride her. Well, it ended up that I went this morning. She did pretty good for me. I had to get after her a couple of times with my spurs and I was in her mouth the entire time because she just wanted to go go go... She definitely needs a person that knows what they are doing to work with her, but I think she has great potential.

I decided that I didn't need a new horse just because it's not fair to my other five horses that are each 200 lbs over weight that need to be worked with, so I told my friend Jaclyn about the horse and she is going to try her out. She has been riding my dead broke SoBe and I think she needs a step up. I believe all good riders learn to ride from riding as many horses as they can!
Jaclyn rode Sassy one day and did well... Lizzie was the next one for her to ride... and I just don't trust Lizzie enough to put anyone on her.  I hope this mare works out, and doesn't end up being 'too much horse'. If she doesn't fit in perfectly, then Sassy will have to be the step up project!

So here are some pictures of this beautiful girl.

Had to show her was boss a little bit! But she stood perfectly still when I got on her and did exactly what I wanted her to do!
P.S. She has a brand! how cool!?!? I have always wanted to brand my horses...

And here she is probably thinking "Geez, it's so hot out here and I can't get away with a dang thing with this girl on me!"  ;)

I really like this mare a lot. I hope she likes my horses enough to where they get along (so she can stay) and that Jaclyn will be able to ride her! It's hard for me to stoop to a lower riding level and ttell someone 'yeah you will be able to ride her!' just because I can, but that just isn't always the case! hopefully she will be a good fit.

I'll update next week when I go get her!  She'll be living at my house, that way I will be able to work with her and help Jaclyn out.

I finally got to meet her!

Meet Faegan.
My precious, sweet, newest niece.

She's perfect.

Please ignore the fact that I need a haircut badly. Gross hair.

Nursing school is taking over my life.

What I wish I were doing right now.... instead of studying!!

My beautiful boy.

I love getting presents. It gives me a boost in my happiness!

HERE is the picture my precious Joshua got me!
He hung it over my bed last night for me. Such a sweetie.
and also the pillow on my bed that Jaclyn got me! :)

This picture pretty much sums up my birthday.
Pretty Picture from Josh, pretty pillow from Jaclyn, Pretty dress from my mommy, pretty shoes from mommy, and pretty balloons courtesy of Jaclyn. May all my birthdays be pretty! ;)

And.... this is lola.
She's thinking, "Why are you taking pictures of me at 11:46 pm?"

"Maybe if I make funny faces you'll stop"

"So annoying"

She is now peacefully sleeping in her bed.

And one more thing!!!
Drumroll pleeease!

Ta da!!!
New camera bag for Molly!!!!
Happy Birthday to me! :)

Yes, today is my birthday :)

I was born 24 years ago today. I'm officially old.

I thought I was going to have the worst birthday ever because all of my family is out of town... but it actually has turned out to be a great birthday!

My Mema took me and Josh to the local seafood restaurant to eat for my birthday last night. It was SO yummy. It's a new restaurant and I had not been there yet. I got oysters (steamed) and they were delish!

After dinner  my horse riding buddy and friend, Jaclyn, came over to have a slumber party for my birthday. She wrote "Happy Birthday Molly!" on the sidewalk where I park my car and had a present for me! I opened my precious card that she handmade herself (crafty little thing!). I must have taken a long time to read my card and then I asked her a question about the last sentence on my card... "Becareful what you pin..."  I said, huh?! did I pin something I wasn't supposed to!? What did I do?! Did I offend someone?! and she blurted out "Just open your present already!!" haha!

She had gotten me a pillow from Anthropologie that matches my room. I cried.

She saw that I posted it on pinterest.com and she got it for me! She is so thoughtful and made me feel like I was the most important person in the world!

I immediately went and made up my bed and put my pillow on there. I love it!

Josh was at my house too so we watched movies. Jaclyn had also gotten me a bottle of Bailey's (see, this girl is awesome!)! I'm not a big drinker... but I love me some Bailey's!

Josh left and Jaclyn and I stayed up talking like 12 year olds. I went to bed around 2:30 and before I knew it... it was 7:50 in the morning and my sweet boyfriend was coming into my room to tell me he was going to make breakfast for me!

When I got up, there were balloons all over the floor in front of my room! Jaclyn again!

We ate cinnamon rolls and talked about how yummy the middle cinnamon roll is and how everyone always fights over it. :)

Then Josh told me to stay put... that he'd be right back! I sat on the floor with Lola until he came back inside. He gave me my card and told me to stay right there on that side of the counter that I couldn't see it yet! I opened my card, It had one of my favorite pictures of us on the front, special ordered just for me! Of course, there was the sweetest note in the world in there. I cried again.

Then he told me to close my eyes... now open!  He had made a gorgeous picture for my room! He works for my dad's sign company so he didn't have any trouble at all finding good help! ;)
It was one of the pictures I had taken in the sunflower field (same time as my header was taken). It's realllly long and looks realllly pretty over my bed! I'll have to take a picture of it when I get it hung and post it on here! I love it!!

So this birthday has been wonderful so far! Now I'm just ready for my family to come home!

I bet you can't guess what this post is about! :)


I just can't get enough of this little guy!
Every time I walk out the door he is right there to greet me. He has such a good little heart!

I took a few minutes to go play with him the other day and I got some good pictures of him and I thought I would share them!

Latch LOVES this bone! It's from Old Navy. I think I bought it like... ten years ago. 
I have given it to every dog that has come onto this farm and he is the only one that actually wanted to play with it. It's soft, squeaky, and chewable. Just what puppies like. 
He likes it so much that he takes it with him when he goes to roll in dead armadillos. I only assume this because when you squeeze it and the air comes out of that little hole... it smells like, yep you guessed it, dead armadillo! Lovely.

Gimme my bone! Give it to me!!

Oh wait... Cat!!

Latch wants so badly to play with Coal Kitty like he plays with Cookie... but Coal Kitty will not approve of Mr. Latch!

Cookie on the other hand.... she will play and play and play with Latch!

This is Cookie.
She is such a diva.

See... watch.


Wa bam!

Ah haha!
She will tell him who's the boss in a heartbeat!

But, she has a sweet side too!

After I study for a couple days... I'll be posting about my brand new niece!! :)
We almost got to share a birthday, but she came on the 8th instead of the 10th!
Happy Birthday, little girl!

Yet another.... new animal

Update July 5, 2011
This little bunny went to heaven.

Much thanks to Cookie, the cat, for bringing us a present today. Not.

My sister just happened to walk out the door as Cookie was bringing this baby bunny up to the porch. 

She (I think. Did you know I'm an expert animal gender teller?) has multiple wounds. One under her chin, 1 on each hind leg, and 2 on her little body- 1 is a puncture wound and the other is just missing all the hair... her skin is soooo thin.

It's pitiful.

Hopefully I can nurse her back to health. She is still in shock. I found her standing in her water a little while ago so maybe she drank some. I found an article that said baby bunnies open their eyes around 11 days and they eat solids at 14 days. I think this bunny is well over 14 days. I have some carrots in there with her. I need to go to town and get some cabbage. They can't eat lettuce. I may even try to borrow some rabbit food from my sweet neighbor! I read another article that says cats carry a bacteria that can kill baby rabbits within 24 hours from septicemia. Not good... I guess we'll see...
I just think that releasing her would be even worse because one of her legs must be sore from the wound that is above it. She'll use it... but not unless she has too. 

I don't know of any rehabilitation or wildlife places around here. I'm sure they wouldn't try to save one little bunny rabbit either. 

I hope to release her after she is better... if she doesn't decide to go be with Jesus- or if Jesus doesn't decide to bring her up there!

Anyone ever had any luck rehabilitating baby rabbits?!
I know how to raise a squirrel... just not a rabbit.
