A Little Bit Of Dirt Means You Need A Shower

I went to the rodeo with some friends I made at WeFest last year.  I headed down later in the afternoon so we could try to get the rodeo around 5 since it started at 4:30.  That didn't happen.  The guys were all going to have a weekend long party with campers & ice houses in the yard so my one friend & I ended up having I think 4 or 5 beers a piece while we waited for boys to set stuff up & drive us there...we ended up walking the mile ourselves.  We caught a fair share of the rodeo & then just walked around while we waited for the dance to start.  We got some more beers & ate awesome, no good for you food.  We stayed until 1 am dancing, drinking, & eating.  I ran into a girl that I graduated college with & found 0 cute boys that fell into all of the appropriate categories "single, at least my age, cute"  Apparently you only get to pick 2.

I woke up around 7 way hungover so I passed out again until 9 when I had to wake up & leave.  I had an almost hour drive back to my parents' house so I could change & get the present for my friend's bridal shower & then a just over an hour to the shower.  I showed up a few minutes late but luckily so did one of my other friends so we got to walk in late together.  The shower was a lot of fun & it was good to see my favorite people from college.  The shower started with a wine/food pairing tasting.  I do NOT like any all.  I love First College Roommate so much that I sat there & drank all of the wine that was put in front of me.  Luckily it was basically shot glass amounts ha.  We then played a few games, I won the "He said/She said" game, & then just hung around for awhile before we all had to head out.

Big time blogger fail.  Kickass Cousin & I threw one of our other cousins a baby shower.  I didn't even remember to bring my camera.  So instead you just get a picture of me & Kickass Cousin's youngest kid at the shower.  The shower went well though!  The food was amazing, the games were good (we had to come up with a last minute tie breaker for one of them since we hadn't accounted for a 3-way tie), & the mama to be got some really cute things.  I am happy/hoping that I won't be throwing any more showers in the near future.  This one felt 100x more stressful than the bridal shower we through for the same cousin 2 years ago.


  1. sounds like a fun weekend! i always forget my camera to things like that too, but how cute is that baby?!

  2. Yes, the pool of available cute boys certainly seems to get smaller and smaller. It's awesome that you had such a good weekend!

  3. Weekend sounds great. And yes girl apparently you can only pick two!

  4. I'm not a wine girl either. But I went on a wine tasting tour last summer for a bachelorette party and had a blast. I think it's fun to have a sip or two of each kind. I could neverrrrr have a full on glass though!

  5. HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE WINE haha. Also, yayyyy to the shower going well!! :D

  6. We have winter right now, which means that weekends are spent indoors. I wouldn't mind getting a little dirty myself. At least it means I'll be outside.
