WILW...Rodeo Edition!

Well hello there! 
Long time no blog.
I'm back today linking up with this kind of love and the vintage apple for what I'm loving Wednesday and Oh! How Pinteresting! 

{I'm Loving} the Houston Rodeo! 
This is probably the number 1 reason I've been sans blog lately. 

It all started off with the trail ride into Houston
I can't even tell ya'll how many cowboys and cowgirls rode up into Houston on horseback and covered wagons.
But I will tell you some of them came from over 300 MILES AWAY...on HORSEBACK ya'll....that's serious.
{I'm Loving} friends!!
The opening weekend of the Rodeo they have a huge BBQ cook-off to kick-off the month ahead.
A bunch of our friends got together for brunch before heading out for the day long celebration!
I contributed these lovely breakfast goodies to the party
So good and so EASY!
After brunch we all headed down to the cook off for a day of craziness and goooooood BBQ!
Fun crew!

This past weekend John and I had friends in from Memphis to partake in a little Rodeo action! 
It was too much fun!

{I'm Loving} the actual Rodeo events!

It's so fun to watch the different events like bull riding, bareback riding, steer wrestling and my favorite: mutton riding, where the little 5 year olds try their hardest to ride cute and hilarious.
ALSO...if that wasn't enough...
every night after the rodeo there's some kind of concert!
So far I've been able to see sexy Luke Bryan shake his thang

And my favorites Eli Young Band bring the house down

Tonight I'm going to see Blake Shelton !!!!!!! and next week I'm going to see Zac Brown Band, Miranda Lambert, and Mr. Brad Paisley himself!
Country girls dream ya'll!!

So now ya'll know what I've been up to the past couple of weeks... just gettin in touch with my country roots! 

In the meantime, I've also been pinning...lets be honest, there's always time to pin...

Loooove this skirt.

Love your country music taste! Ahhh, and the rodeo... The first time I met my now MIL we all went to a rodeo in Mesquite and quite literally got a cowboy in our laps. As in, he was thrown off of his horse, over the railing and right onto us. He made the Fox news (and I ended up marrying my sweet then-boyfriend) so all's well that ends well!
