A Horse of a Tale

So i have this super cute friend named Sarah. She is just so adorable and cute. 
Well today she took Mercedez and me HORSEBACK riding!!
Thats right, I'm practically a cowgirl now. All i need is a hat...and a horse of my own:)
But we were super nervous. 
Because horses are huge!
And we are so small in comparison.
But we faced a fear and check out what happened.
Meet Goliath, my sturdy steed for the day. 
Ain't he a cutie?

And this handsome fella is Joker. 

And just like that I'm up. Don't we look good together? 

What a lovely bunch we are.

So...Did i mention that we had to catch our own horses? Because we did.  
We caught them. 
We saddled them.
We gave them some lovin.  I'm telling ya, Mr. Goliath was a cuddle bug.
And of course took some pictures- i had to have proof 

So we mount up. And we are off! Can you believe i got my very own horse? I know absolutely nothing about horses. Not a thing I'm tellin you.  
They gave me a horse and said have at it. 
Do you know what i could do with a horse?
Well neither do i, but thats beside the point. 

So we all leave on our own horses. And we go on a ride.  It wasn't one of those "let me lead this horse on a rope while you sit on it" kinda rides.  I had the reins in my hands and my feet in the stirrups. I had complete control of Goliath.  Although he didn't listen to me all the time.  Goliath had a mind of his own.  He like to randomly stop.  And he loved to talk.  All the other horses were silent, but mine was a talker.  We went perfect together, because just like the horse, i couldn't shut up. So we rode on.  We didn't just walk though. We trotted. And we GALLOPED!! 
It was thrilling.
It was scary. 
My butt couldn't stay in the saddle. 
But i didn't mind, I felt free.
I felt like a blonde Pocahontas.

My little sister had quite the experience also.  Her horse loved to gallop.  Sadie however did not. All i can say is I'm glad she hung on for dear life.  Poor Joker scared the wits out of her. After that we walked:) 

So after an exhilarating day, i left poor Goliath in his field and i went home.  I live to tell another tale, to see another day.  For tonight i will have little horsie dreams and tomorrow i will have a sore butt!!

The naming of the blog

The naming of the blog. Sounds scary right?? Trust me it was.  Or it was at least hard, thats for sure. This blog made me realize one thing. I am the least creative person alive. I mean it.  Im pretty sure i stared at my computer screen for hours.  Hours later I'm still staring at the screen.  So i enlisted the help of my family. Let me share with you what we came up with. 

My adorable little sister Mercedez- usually a creative little bugger, was not so very creative last night. So heres the list. Judge it as you will
  1. She says "Maddi do you have an inside joke? Like:  I HAVE A CUPCAKE!!!"  hmmm....let me think for a moment. NOPE. Lets try again. 
  2. How about Apple juice? haha she's just so funny:)
  3. Miss Roboto- At this point I'm rolling in laughter. 
 I have the best little sister in the world!!!!! But she's not creative at 11:00 at night.  My mom then precedes to call me so i ask her, she nominates "Never Mad". Which is true. But its not to cute and catchy. Im after cute and catchy:)  Hahaha here i come Facebook! And who should be on Facebook? My older sister Meagan in Alaska.  She's adorable, but unfortunately for her ideas were even worse than Sadie's. Here is her list:
  1. MaddiBug- Due to the fact that i do drive a yellow bug
  2. YellowBug- haha because i have blonde hair AND i drive a yellow bug
  3. Flower Child- At this point my brother-in-law Darren joins in. This one is kinda offending. I'd like to think I'm a classy girl now, flower child was only a stage.
  4. Ruberducky37- Super Duper random
  5. Napoleon Dynamite #1 fan- Your kidding me right?? haha my family is just so funny
  6. Alaska_want_to_be- This one is totally true. I do wanna be in alaska. And hopefully i will be when i get out on break.  But sadly this is not a blog name. Just a secret obsession right now.
Now aren't they just the greatest? Now i know their ideas sucked, but they were there for me at nearly midnight!! Thats pretty darn neat if you ask me. :)  So after much thinking, and a day later....Ive decided on MY NOGGIN BLOGGINS!!! Why may you ask?  I have a mind of my own. I always have. I always will. It is constantly running, thinking, and daydreaming. I can control it (thank goodness) but sometimes its just fun when i don't.  So my blog is born. Enjoy it. Laugh at it. Please don't cry at it. Read it when your bored. Read it when your in class or at work. Read it instead of getting on Facebook.  To follow or not to follow? The choice is up to you.  Let the blogging begin:)
