This Thing Is Legendary!

Hey y'all!  Happy Monday!

This weekend kicked of the 2013 Ft Worth Stock Show & Rodeo!
Y'all, I LIVE for this time of year.  There's just something about seeing all the horses & trailers ALL over town... the smell of it all, yes the smell... the food, the shopping.  OH the shopping.  It's just one of those things that's so much fun it's hard to explain.  It reminds me of home & growing up.  My Dad & brother team rope & I raised pigs for FFA... being around this sort of stuff is just in my blood.

We woke up early Saturday morning, got our grub on & bundled up to hop on the motorcycle (steal horses in the city) & ride to downtown for the parade.  Believe it or not, in all of my 26 years, I've never been to the parade.  My Dad said it had been about 40 years since he had been.  #oldie  :)

1. TCU Band
2. The Stock Show mascots
3. Ropers
4. The wild women of Pearls Dancehall Saloon - they were hilarious!

Some friends of ours riding in the parade!

& Lastly... Saturday was also one of my best friend's birthday!  They met us at the parade as well & rode their steal horse in... :)

We got to have lunch & some drinks after with them & enjoyed some tunes on the patio at Fred's Texas Cafe.
We had to make an dumb adult decision to stay in Saturday night verses playing out on the town.  Let me tell ya, it was hard & not a fun decision to make!  However, I guess it's a good thing we did because I would of had to figure out a way to haul Matt out of the bar... he fell asleep on the couch by 7:30!!!

Sunday was filled with a lot & I mean A LOT of wedding crafts!  I'm so excited & wish I could show y'all everything now... but, I promise to show y'all after the big day!

I hope y'all had a great weekend & have a great week too!


  1. Is it sad that I did not even know there was a parade until o saw your Instagram pic?!??

  2. Soooo fun!!! I'm a sucker for a good parade... Especially the bands!
