Horsey Wedding, CWD Saddles, and the Cutest Picture Ever

Last weekend, I attended my college suitemate's wedding:

3 of the 4 suitemates.  Teegan, on the left, got married.  After college, she rode with the Tempel Lippizzans for 3 years, and she continues to ride for her longtime trainer, Mario Contreras.

And showing at Lamplight this year.

It was a fantastic wedding, with the officiant mentioning her horse in the ceremony (As in, "You both need to learn to make sacrifices in marriage - Teegan, I know you love Hanna, but sometimes you'll have to step away from the barn and spend some time with Steve"), and her dog on a lead rope at the reception.



I also got to hang out with Connor's Aunt Mary, and when we carpooled from where I was staying to the reception, she had to move some of her "inventory" out of her car into mine to make room for me to sit:

Mary's inventory.

5, 10, 15, 20, 25...thousand dollars.

And that's how I ended up with three CWD Dressage saddles in my car for five hours on Saturday:


Sadly, I had to give them back.

Nick ended up having to work all weekend, so I brought Nick and I's friend up with me and played matchmaker with him and Mary.  They really hit it off, and when we stopped on the way home yesterday to take Connor's blanket off, he asked me to take a picture of him with Connor so he could text it to her, with the caption, "Am I doing this right?"

Oh my gosh, yes, yes you're doing it right!  Cutest thing ever! Or, as Nick said, "That dude has some serious game."

It was a good weekend!
