It's Rodeo season in our neck of the woods! Every year since I've lived in Houston I've attended the Rodeo. This time of year means a few things....Tons of fun. Lots of nights up too late. Priceless memories.
Here's a little bit of my Houston Rodeo history......The first few years I attended the rodeo I was a bit spoiled with suite tickets, thanks to a college friend. I've been with my parents and brother to see Taylor Swift. Gone while I was pregnant. Seen George Strait in this arena twice. Taken my 11 months old because the babysitter cancelled at the last minute. Paid for too many bike cabs because my feet always hurt by the end of the night. Stood in long lines for the light rail. Gobbled down cotton candy with my nearly 2 year old. Gone with a group of M.D. Anderson kids to see Rascal Flatts. And I've had some of the best girls nights at the rodeo. If you're ever in the area during Houston's rodeo season GOOOOO! Don't let the traffic scare you. It's well worth the memories.
I was dying to see Blake Shelton but was never able to find good tickets. I made Gordon promise he'd take me to one of his concerts in the near future. And then the NIGHT BEFORE the concert my sweet sister in law called to say she had two tickets for me! YIPPEE!!! He was fabulous (and Miranda even came out to sing Home with him). The next night I saw Easton Corbin with a bunch of my best girl friends. I have to say I was super impressed. He put on a wonderful show. It was a night full of singing, laughing and story telling. I sure do love my girls and country music!
It's simply amazing how much he's changed in 12 months! At this rate, he's going to be bull riding before I can blink.
