hobby horse blog hop #21 and #22

Here are the rules:
Answer one or all of the prompts. Link back to Living a Dream's post. Visit other blogs. And don't forget to ask a question of everyone else!
I wanted to participate in last weeks blog hop, but I had a week Of Shyloh's birth-iversary posts scheduled, so this week is a two for one!

Week 22: Let's Party!!
1. In what ways do you celebrate birthdays, or other special days, for the fuzzy friends at your home?
Well, I celebrated Shyloh's birth-iversary by mixing her up a little birthyday "pie" and putting a hat on her. I probably won't do anything much for her other birthdays. I do not know the dog's birthdays, either. But for Christmas, they usually get a little something in the stockings I made for them.
2. What memories might you have of a birthday celebration, or other party, involving horses or ponies?
I never had a horse-themes birthday party. That bug bit me a little later in life. When my nephew turned one, Mike's mom had a pony come to her backyard to give all the kids pony rides. There was also a goat. Fun times!

3. What special day is your favorite to celebrate?
I love love love my birthday! I try my best to celebrate the whole month of October. Second to that would be Thanksgiving. It's like Christmas with the family and food, but without all the hassle of the gifts!

Week 21: Those Things We Do
1. When things get busy for you, what/who takes priority? How do you juggle everything?
When stuff gets busy for me one of two things can happen. I make a list and check things off as I go or I totally blow everything off. Stuff that usually takes priority is family and animals. Household stuff usually falls to the bottom of the list. 

2. We have been Hobby Horsing for 20 weeks... but I still don't know some things about you. Do you have a hobby and, if so, tell us about it.
I do like to craft, but I don't often get the chance. I have made a few scrapbooks and I like to paint picture frames. Oh yeah, and I decorated the stockings in the photo above! I also like more physically active hobbies like biking and kayaking.

3. What practice(s) with horses, or other domestic animals, rubs you the wrong way?
Anything that hurts or damages the animal physically or mentally upset me. And not just acts of abuse, but also neglect makes my blood boil. 

My question: Where would your ultimate party be held? 


  1. It was great fun reading your responses. I think October is a great Birthday month. My baby was born 10/28.... although I did have the option to have him come on 10/31 - since he was a planned C-section.
    The stockings are so cute - and oh, I loved your Birth-aversary posts for Shyloh!
    The ultimate party? Wow... that's tough. There are so many options! It would be fun to have a party at a mansion - like the Biltmore estate in Asheville, NC. It would also be fun to have a destination party at Disney or some other theme park. Ah, too many choices.

  2. I do love that you celebrated Shy's birthaversary - wish I was so creative.

    Being a ParrotHead, I'd have to say that I'd have a party at one of the more exotic Margaritaville locations. Not Phoenix or LV or Orlando, but one of the ones actually in the Carribean.

    1. The Carribean for sure! That would be the only way to go!

  3. I love Thanksgiving too! :D

    Those stockings are so cute! I like to scrapbook too, but haven't had much time to do it. Have you ever looked into digital scrapbooking? It is so cool!

    Perfect party place? Umm..... I don't know. The place isn't as important as who is there. :D If my friends and family are there I don't care where we are.
