I don't usually make it a habit to throw myself into the daily spotlight at TAG, but this week will be a notable exception. You must forgive this indulgence, since it will not happen again for a long time. Of that I can assure you.
I happened to receive a little white package in the mail today. Turns out it was a special surprise from Aprons Americana!!! That horse print I was oogling over on Monday was real and in my very own hands. I simply did what every normal woman does when she gets something new... I put it on.
Now this apron is one I can cover in filth and never feel guilty. It's not one of those prissy primadonna aprons for real girly-girls, but it's not supposed to be. These are get down and dirty with no holds barred aprons.
Aprons Americana is not selling those sexy little numbers you wear to peak your husbands interest... These are functional aprons for your everyday work! I really would not wear my pink floral apron out to the barn. What would the horses think?
When I have to wear white clothes for horse shows, I will put this apron on in between rides. Yes, the idiots who run the dressage competitions mandate buttoned white shirts with stock ties and sparkling white breeches. You are privileged to wear a dark colored jacket over all of that. Their kindness knows no bounds...
So the giveaway for Aprons Americana ends on Saturday at midnight. Be sure to get your entry in before the deadline! Go choose your favorite pattern and leave me a comment here. If your lucky number comes up in the random drawing you win the apron fabric pattern of your choice.
And here is a parting picture of the torturous clothing we must wear for dressage shows... Really, I hate the "uniform." It looks tidy but I am always sweating my butt off in that dreadful jacket.
By the way, my horses have been standing around doing nothing for days now since it been raining and raining in California. I will be happy to get back to work with them again. Meanwhile, I will wear my apron and wait out the storms!
