Rodeo Queen

I went to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo twice already, once with Kae and once alone. It's incredibly fun! I think Niki and I are going to try and go back this weekend to take the kids to the carnival.There's a HUGE shopping area, a livestock show, a rodeo and horse show, concerts, a carnival and a crap ton of food!

Like I could resist!!
The first weekend Katie and I went and just browsed around the shopping area. There's so much to see it's fun to just look. Last weekend I took myself back to watch the ranching competition. Multiple ranches (seven in this case) come as teams and compete against one another in various events. It was completely entertaining and I loved it! I was a little late (Houston traffic and all) so I missed some. But I'll be going back next year.

Afterwards I browsed through the cows at the livestock show for a few hours. Like, 2. Really. I love cows. I have always wanted a cow as a pet. Besides, I bought myself a margarita and it was so strong I needed to walk it off!

After that I browsed the shopping again. Then my feet were exhausted, so I headed outside to choose one of the hundreds of places to eat, got some killer BBQ and yet another margarita, then headed home.

Very strong margaritas! YUM!
Potato stuffed with BBQ. Delish!
I have to tell you- it was a blast! I am by far the best date I have ever been on. :)


  1. Aww Ash! Looks like so much fun! Those boots are amazzing!

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
