I'm off on a adventure

An adventure to Taumarunui! Thats right, today is the day before the Ball! You might remember from my post Happy Days, I told you that Sarah Anne was coming to Auckland to shop for ball accesories, and I must say we were very sucessful. Sarah-Anne got some awesome silver shoes, 2 necklaces, a bra and some sunnies (those sunnies aren't for the ball but they were only $5 so we couldn't pass them up). I got some slighty big, but still awesome white shoes, a necklace and 3 pairs of sunnies :) My shoes were only $10! And I bought some white ribbon last night so I can tie them onto my feet. Haha yes I know, doesn't sound that nice but really it looks alright. And no-one will see them anyway since I'm wearing a long dress.

To keep this post horse related we have also decided to take some horses up to the top of one of her many hills and have a picnic on Sunday. We did this once before and it was great fun! Actually I remember being rather scared during this adventure because we were chased by two young yearlings up this incredibly muddy track at a mad gallop. Luckily I was in front most of the time so it was Sarah Anne that got plastered by mud, not me :) I still don't like Oddfellow (one of those pesky yearlings) because of that day, but all in all that picnic was a great success.

So my readers (haha yes.. my readers) don't expect any posts until Monday night. There is a chance I might be able to do a quick post while I'm there but I expect I shall be having too much fun! I hope you all have a great weekend! Stay safe and don't get yourself into too much trouble! And by the way I'll be taking heaps of pictures so I hope your looking forward to them as they will be posted right here on A Girl and Her Horse!

Auf Weidersehen!

I just wanted to say that I love your blog! thanks for stopping by mine. You say I'm lucky about America having more clothes:) Cool but something you have to remember is that the best clothes over here are really expensive. That's why alot of us(whether we like to admit it or not!)shop at thrift stores. But yeah-I think your lucky! I've only seen pictures of New zealand and it's beautiful! Where I live it's not really that pretty. I mean there's a few hills here and there but...I'd much rather be in California or somewhere like New Zealand! I would love to go there!
