Rodeo Carnival

How are y'all doing? I hope everyone had a great weekend. Our weekend was fine. We went to the rodeo again for the last time last weekend. The rodeo season has ended!
Instead of buying bundles of tickets, we chose to get an unlimited ride wristband for our daughter. 
She had a blast and went twice on some of the many rides. 
We also took her to the Animal/Garden booth.
It was a great day and we had fun! How about you? How's your weekend?

Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles Giveaway

Crayola has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I love coloring, and Crayola is my favorite brand. Now as the mother of an artsy 5-year old girl, our home is never lacking in crayons and other Crayola products. We have Crayola colored chalks, markers, paints, colored pencil and washable glue glitters.
I was ecstatic when I found out that I was given the chance to do a review and giveaway for Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles. Inside the package was a Crayola Washable Colored Bubble Launcher and 3-pack Crayola Washable Colored Bubbles. So I let my daughter tried both products right after she got home from school. She was having a blast while playing with Crayola colored bubbles. It’s her first time playing with colored bubbles.
While they are messy, Outdoor Colored Bubbles are designed to clean up from most outdoor surfaces. To see how it works and cleans up, just watch the video below.
Crayola Washable Colored Bubble Launcher:
No batteries required. Just connect a bottle of colored bubbles; attach the crack handle and blow colorful bubbles. Bubbles are washable off most surfaces and non-toxic. This package contains one Bubble Launcher and two bottles of Colored Bubble Solution.
Crayola Washable Colored Bubbles come in 3 vibrant colors—Unmellow Yellow, Purple Pizzazz and Fuchsia.

Note: Colored bubbles are for OUTDOOR PLAY ONLY. Grassy and dirt areas away from houses, patios and decks are best for less mess and cleanup. NEVER use at formal events like weddings.

Are you interested in letting your little ones test these out too? Well, you're in luck because MyBlogSpark and Crayola want to give these items to one of my lucky US readers.

Moving Here

Thanks for the article from Isaiah Gaines
When we moved into our new house I don't think my husband or myself had any idea how hard it was going to be to meld our two styles together. He is much more traditional than I am and none of our furniture matched so we had to spend a lot of money just making this place look like more than a college dorm room. I know both of us are really excited to finally live together since we wanted to wait until we got married it's actually been kind of fun having conversations about things like finding a couch and whether or not we should get high speed internet at home. We've been talking in the last few weeks about whether or not we should look into getting a dog because I think it would be really good practice for us before we are ready to have children. I just love being married and even though it's a hodgepodge of sorts I'm really happy to be in our new home at last.

Stock Show & Rodeo

Yee haw! It's that time of year again! It's rodeo time in Central Texas! We had a blast during our first rodeo experience last year. Some photos can be found HERE & HERE.
The Stockshow and Rodeo started last February 9th and will end on the 26th of February. It's a very long event. I was kind of hesitant on going because of the "not so good" weather, but hubby kept insisting that we should go, so we went.
There are plenty of things to do at the fair. Live entertainment, petting zoos, shows, booths, rides, and food...lots of them!
The little miss got a new cowboy hat this year. Wait, she said "it's a cowgirl hat mama!". She also got a new rope.

It's quite windy that day, but we had fun. We might want to go back again next weekend.

America's Next Top Model

Contribution by Stevie Kirby
My wife and I love to watch TV together, but sometimes finding a show that we both want to watch is difficult. I like action oriented shows and she likes dramas and love stories. She has found a new show that she loves and it is called America's Next Top Model. This show is about a bunch of skinny girls who are trying to get on the cover of a magazine. They always have to were awful looking cloths and participate in these silly photoshoots. I think it is a ridiculous show, but wife likes it so who am I to judge her. Whenever I come home for work she is always watching it on our TV. A month ago we went and signed up for their service. I will always find something to keep myself busy until she gets done watching it. I usually try to find something manly to do like yard work or working on my truck. I love working on my truck myself, I have saved over twenty five hundred dollars in the past year by performing my own maintenance and repairs.

Why Can't We All Just Get Along?

Our dog, Buddy, almost killed this cat. Glad I was there to yell at him when they were fighting. The cat won't leave away and  Buddy won't stop barking. After all, cats and dogs don't get a long.

It's Time to Organize My Life

The internet is filled with so many wonderful photos and important information that it is sometimes hard to keep track of all the interesting things that you see online. You may be overwhelmed with all the things that you see online that you may not remember to save all of them. But what if there is a website that allows you to save every item that you find interesting online? It would sure be great to have a single place where you can save and organize your favorite items, right? Clipix is the perfect tool for those who like to have a place where all their favorite items are saved in what is called a ‘clipboard’.

My clipboards at clipix would most likely contain interesting photos that I see online. I have always been interested in photography and I would usually browse online for interesting and unique photos. I would share my clipboards with friends who are also interested with photography and even those who appreciate great photos.
You should try it and let me know how do you like it. Also, if you would like to take all your clipboards with you on the go and add new clips by taking photos of things you see, why not get the clipix iPhone app? You should visit their website today and sign up for clipix!

In Texas, cowboy boots are popular. You don't have to be a "real cowboy" to wear one. Today, cowboy boots are not just for the hard working cowboy. In fact, almost anybody can wear these boots.
 Cowboy boots is a very common accessory in the daily wardrobe for most Texans. Here, people wear these boots rain or shine. Here's my COWBOY boots COLLECTION!
I already have 2 pairs of cowboy boots before we moved to TX from CA, now I have 8 pairs! Hubby has one too, but he don't use it anymore! He used to take COUNTRY dance lessons when he was single.
