Something I Bet You Didn't Know About Me...

Okay. I'm gonna make a world wide web public confession. I am a PBR (no not Pabst Blue Ribbon-Professional Bull Riding) fan. Make that Fan (with a capital F). I am not a redneck. I don't listen to country music. I have all my teeth and don't smoke or chew. (have I broken down all the stereotypes yet? I used to think of all those stereotypes too!) I would like to own a pair of cowgirl boots and a hat. A girl's gotta accessorize you know.

So last night, my wonderful husband, and our youngest daughter and I drove to Daytona Beach for the Enterprise Invitational. This is the Minor Leagues in the PBR. The Built Ford Tough Series is the Major Leagues. I'm guessing that this is probably way more info than you wanted. Too bad! It's my Blog!!! 8)

Here are my pictures (or at least the best ones). The joy of riding and getting off safely and the agony of defeat. The poor cowboy sitting down hurt his knee and most definately had a hitch in his get-a-long! And last but not least me and my forever corrupted daughter who now knows how to cheer for the cowboys and stand up to look and make sure no one is hurt!

Some more info. Although the crowd was small, it was diverse. From the way older than me to the very young. All types of people. And they started with prayer. Nice to see all those cowboys on one knee with their hats off and heads bowed. Guess you feel pretty strongly about talking to God when you're about to get on a 1500-2000 lb bucking bull.

So there it is. I laid it out. Love me anyways and maybe next time you should join me!

(btw, PBR can be seen every Sat and Sun night at 8pm on the OLN (outdoor living network). It really is a sport and there's lots to learn about bull riding)

Where Have I Been?

That's a really good question. Truth be told, busy in the day to day grind of life. That's not necessarily a bad thing.

I have decided to step up my Stampin' Up! business. This too is a good thing. Unfortunately, blogging has suffered slightly. I'm feeling busy with classes and projects. Hanging with good people, enjoying it and making some money. Ah....

The kids are all doing well. Growing up. Being independent. This is a weird thing. I'm still adjusting to the changes. I think they'd like me to hurry up and get with the program!

Here are a few favorite things at the moment:

1. My crockpot. Did you know you could cook a meal in a crockpot every single night of the week! Fabulous! The less time in the kitchen for me, the better.

2. Scrap 2 It. My favorite local scrapbook store. Great things to look at, great people.

3. Soduku Puzzles. I'm addicted. Try it... you'll like it....

4. My new haircut. The stylist cut it with a razor and I love it. Nothing like a good razor cut.

5. Donna Downey's year long scrapbooking class at Worth every penny and heaps of fun projects. Hard to keep up with the weekly assignments, but I do my best.

That's about it for now. Hope your favorites list is long.
