4th of July was great--we saw a nice fireworks show and perfectly escaped the rain (it started right as the show ended!). We went with some friends and had a pleasant time.
I made a very productive trip to Target the other day. I got some accessories for my room and new bedding. Wow! It looks sooo good! Lately I've been going a little crazy with the online shopping, though. I bought a new camelbak water bottle (the insulated kind!), a vera bradley travel toiletry bag, new riding breeches (4 pairs *cough* *cough*), aaaaaand a cute bikini top. Hmm...Maybe I should lay off for a while...
After a little chink in perfection I think I'll be able to ride a few times this week (as opposed to 0 times last week...). After a clunker of a lesson two weeks ago, I really want to push myself to improve before camp where I'll be riding 5 times a day! I am soooo excited to go (which reminds me, I should tentatively start packing in case I need to buy anything new).
Well, that's about all that's necessary for this little update. Take a look at some of these pictures from Italy!
