We Have a Winner

Congratulations to Carly from Poor Woman Showing for winning the Better Bows giveaway! I hope Bobby loves his crown charm :). So much thanks to Paige and everyone who participated! I have been super busy, hence my lack of posting. Long story short, I have decided to keep Estella...

Video Update

My boyfriend was kind enough (but really, did he have an option?) to video me on Saturday! It is the first time I have seen myself ride since January so here are my thoughts: Holy Large and In Charge Marge. Why am I posting so aggressively? Since when did...
