She's Gone Country...

Yes, I went country twice in one week!  I was more prepared with my Texas style this rodeo go around.

The hubs surprised me with tickets to Jake Owen, my country singer crush...hope he {the hubs} doesn't get jealous! His show was spectular and on stage, his charm like no other. I think I might be competing with all the Texas women now...especially with my sweet friend, Jessica with Fanciful

We had so much fun, more so the second time around...I think it was because I didn't have to work the next day...funny how you go all "out" when you know the alarm clock isn't going off in the morning.

Since we rode the carnival rides during our first visit, we decided to take a stroll through the livestock area after the rodeo/concert .  Take a look below and see what decided to let me give it a little love...I heart Texas and this time of year...if you ever get the chance, you HAVE to go to a rodeo once in your life. 


Getting things started....

My competition that I spoke of eariler.  Love Jessica...check out her blog Fanciful
You will adore her as much as I do!

Now, that's what I am talking about...chiseled, long haired, cutie pie, Mr. Jake Owen...

The hubs and I...no, he did NOT wear this all night...just a "prop".

Do I look "country" yet? 

My favorite picture of the night.  I couldn't believe it let me pet it.
I was a little nervous...not going to lie.

True Texas

I wanted to take this baby home with me.

You can't go to a rodeo and not take picture on a big, green machine.


Do you have a bit of country running through your blood, or would you rather stick to the city?

Y'all come back now, ya hear?!?!

Cheers to saying "YEE-HAW"!!

I love that yellow dress. I'm not a country girl, but I could get into a cute dress paired with cowboy boots!

YOu are the cutest. Loving the blue/yellow combo. I recently got some new cowboy boots and let's just say, I've gotten my money's worth already...they just go nicely with everything. Def a good investment. :)
