Chomping at the Bit

I have horses on the brain, as this Saturday is the Kentucky Derby, an event I grew up watching every year on television and that has long held a special place in my heart.


It has also been a long time since my last theme week, and I have been chomping at the bit* to present this one, so, without further ado, I bring you Horse Week.

*If you are thinking "Champing at the Bit!!," you are correct. I, however, apparently along with many other English speakers, thought it was "chomping," and it seemed too strange for me to write "champing" instead. Grammar police score one point.

I never knew it was "champing"! I never even knew "champing" was a word!

I'm looking forward to horse week. :)

I am going to LOVE this week! I must have had a sixth sense, because I started out my week wandering the barns at a Paso Fino Horse Show! I've never had any experience with these beauties, but it was love at first sight.
