Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).

Rewind for a brief moment

So, life happens but it got put on the blogger back burner as I was tending to Laz McSoreFoot 
But, now that we are on an UP, I thought I should show you some pictures that I've been wanting to share
Mid June, I headed back home to Chicago (actually I'm from Evanston which is the first North Shore Suburb north of Chicago).
Hello gorgeous!
For those that haven't been to the lovely Chi-town...you are missing out.
It's an amazing, amazing city.
Previously mentioned, when I was home for another weekend, I saw that the Field Museum was running a special show "The Horse."
Surely, I wasn't going to miss that!!!
So, it was on my "To Do List" as it ends this August.

 I guilted my adorable non horse loving cousin (but LOVES her some Laz) to the Field.  
She's always game for a good time and lives in the City  
Play date!
 Meet Sue
She's scary and cool
She's the largest and best preserved T-Rex
Can you imagine seeing Sue in her hey day.
No thanks!!!
 And, below, the Pi`ece de R`esistance...
No cameras were allowed in, but ooopsy.
Behold from left to right; the Kentucky Derby trophy, the Preakness, the Belmont and ....the freakin Triple Crown.
Overall "The Horse" exhibit was fun and we cruised through the history and other fun facts in about an hour.  Nothing earth shattering and definitely could have touched more on the emotional side of the horse, but it was pretty cut and dry, but decent enough.

 Ever so conveniently, when you walked out of the exhibit, this store below was waiting for you.
To take ALL your money
It is basically the store of any horse loving 6 yr old wanted.
Or any age for that matter
I walked away with two $1 rubber Bay horse toys
and this LOVELY metal aged horse head hook. 
I'm going to hang him somewhere else in my home office, for my purse to hang proudly on.
Can you believe, it was only $9 bucks!
 And I saw this!
The Greek eye on a horse shoe...too bad, so sad that it's hanging the wrong way. 
So, I passed. 
I didn't want our luck running out, as it is positioned to do by hanging the shoe this way.


  1. Looks like fun! I'd love to see that exhibit. It looks really interesting. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Some time if we are both back in the suburbs at the same time we should try and meet up for coffee or something.

  3. Cool, look's like a fun day out! =D

  4. Sounds like a fun trip! I love Chicago, such a fabulous place to be!
