Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Oh my GOSH YOU GUYS I'M SO EXCITED. I normally wouldn't consider myself a really lucky person -- I don't win a lot of contests or drawings. And I enter them A LOT. But apparently 2018 is my year??
First there was the Horse of Course Valentine's Day giveaway -- my horses LOVE these cookies!
Then there was the Amateur at Large giveaway -- thank you Stacie!!! I wear the wrap bracelets several times a week, I LOVE them. 
Then there was this tack cleaner from KJ Creations that I won because Clover Ledge Farm tagged me in a giveaway :) bloggers are seriously the best, ya know?
And I really didn't think it could get any better -- all that stuff is SUPER COOL and I love it and I use it basically daily (especially the HOC halter, that's Jack's daily halter now!). But ya know, as a confirmed tack ho, I still enter contests for tack or attire that I'd love to have. Like a Walsh halter giveaway last week (spoiler alert: didn't win that one, damn). But a little over a week ago, Majyk Equipe kicked off their Summer of Giveaways with something that had my name written all over it.......
*CUE SCREAMING*
Of course, my fantastic friends, well aware of my teal-themed life, tagged me to enter (actually I got more than one tag and several PMs lol). And I think I really need to go back even further to tell you why I was so excited about this contest -- About 18 months ago, I saw a pair of these on an event horse in my state, and through some internet sleuthing, I discovered they were a prototype. Naturally, when I was at Rolex at the ME booth, I immediately starting quizzing them about these boots (multiple sources can confirm, lol). Unfortunately, they said they were limited to sponsored riders... boooo. So naturally, this contest was VERY EXCITING for me! The criteria was to follow ME on all social media platforms (already done), tag two friends (easy peasy), and then write about why your horse is a limited edition. I picked Cinna and wrote something suitably sappy, and then held my breath for a week. Last Friday they were supposed to announce the winner, and I clicked over to their page every half an hour or so -- I was having a not-so-great day and was kind of in a mood, so I was hoping against hope that maybe I'd win the contest. I'm sure you know where this is going?
I'm not going to lie, when Amanda tagged me (because she saw their post like 3 seconds after they posted it I guess haha) and I clicked over to read the photo caption, I might have started shaking like a leaf and screaming in my office. 
Ahhhhhh much excite. So I emailed my deets over to ME as requested, and hopefully the new boots will arrive sometime relatively soon? Or whatever, I'm just excited to get them! And to celebrate my love of ME products, enjoy some gratuitous recycled old shots of my girls wearing ME dressage sport boots and bell boots.

    1. It's kind of nice to have this little area of my life going well since everything else is kind of blah 😂

      Hopefully I'll be able to bring myself to put them on a horse and get dirty, as opposed to just putting them on display in my tack shed 😍😍😍

    1. I'm not sure, rub my head maybe? Hahah I'd be happy to share the luck! (But not the boots, those will have to be pried out of my cold, dead fingers 😂).

  9. Very cool! Once upon a time I had great luck winning radio contests (mostly concert tickets, but once with airfare and hotel, and once a signed guitar!) but it seems to have worn off :( I haven't won anything in years. My bf makes fun of me for always trying, or even for still listening to the radio :p

    1. I still listen to the radio! In fact the morning show I listen to was doing a contest on my birthday and my initials matched up so I was eligible to win if I'd gotten through on the phones but I didn't 😂 maybe your luck is cyclical and it will come back around soon!
