I Heart Rodeos


I am a cowgirl at heart. Even if it is just for the big hair on the ladies and the rugged hats on the men! I like it and I'm jealous of all the fun clothes that they wear! There is never a better place to see interesting people.

Marc looked so handsome in his cowboy hat! The rodeo announcer asked if any of the women in the crowd thought that their husbands were tough enough to be in the wild horse race and I guarantee I screamed louder and longer than any other women there.

My cowboy and me

Happy 44th Anniversary to my Mom and Dad! What a way to celebrate!

Stock Parade

Every year some of my nieces and nephews participate in the Lehi Stock Parade. It is so fun to get to see all of them and how brave and talented they are with their horses!

My niece, Taylor, is the Lehi Round Up Rodeo Queen this year. She looked so pretty in pink! My sister, Missy (Taylor's mom) is so talented and she dyed Taylor's pants pink and painted her belt and boots to match!

This is my dads carriage and his mule Josie. Although my dad was not driving for the parade, this brought back a lot of memories and of course I got a little teary.

My cute, little, 4 year old nephew, Carson, always rides in the wagon with his grandpa Doug.

This is my handsome nephew Dalton who rode his horse in the parade with his high school FFA group. He also served as an advertisement!

Real Salt Lake

Before the game started

Pretty sweet seats!

I love the hand placement of the guys blocking the ball. I can't say that I blame them.

The unfortunate truth is that we had 90 minutes
of entertainment and this was the final score.

We had a great time at the game but I'd be lying if I told you that watching the game was my favorite part of the night. Oh no no. I was fortunate enough to be sitting next to a sweet young couple who were obviously on their first date. Just think back to all of your first dates and the questions that you asked each other. Girl took every chance she could get to touch guy's leg and throw her head back with her long flowing hair each time she laughed. Guy yelled out "LET'S GO REAL!" every time there was a pause in their conversation. I discovered by the end of the night that guy was much more interested in his own pink shirt and large ring than he was in his date. I don't know where he got his confidence from because he had a surgical boot on with some seriously nasty toenails hanging out the end. Who knows? Maybe she won some points back when she pulled the fruit snacks out of her purse?

Our Yard

We worked all weekend on our yard. It went from a hilly, rocky, weedy mess to awesomeness all in one week! Not a total betty, but a vast improvement!

To top it off, tonight we planted a garden! We've got a little of everything and we are so excited to watch it grow!

Happy Birthday Marc!

Who wants a birthday cake when you could have a case of Mexican Coke? I'm talking the kind you drink, not the kind you snort...come on people. Marc has always said that Mexican Coke is way better than boring old American coke. I had this case shipped all the way from Mexico just for his birthday. Ok, not really. They are selling it at Costco.

Marc's birthday was actually on Tuesday but we will be celebrating next Wednesday when we go to our first Real Salt Lake Game!

Sweet Feet!

I found this fun pattern at Broadbent's. They took a long time to make but I'm sure the next ones will go smoother. Marc said that I should sell them, however, I would have to charge around $150 to make it worth all the time it took me. If you'd like to buy a pair let me know. The proceeds will go towards buying my own sewing machine!
