Head 'em up, move 'em out...

It's that time a year round these parts...its rodeo season. Oh yes, here in Texas there is a whole season for the rodeo. Like Christmas its one or the most wonderful times of the year! However living in the BIG city like Houston (because we know nothin' is small in Texas) it can be quite the adventure getting to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo with all that stinkin traffic, but in the end...well worth it!

So if the timing or the traffic detour you away from the spirit of the rodeo how about throwing a party in its honor... as my mom would say its better than a stick in your eye.

succulants, bandanas used as flag banners or napkins, rope tied around cans or laid out on tables and old vintage jugs perfectly placed.
homemade bbq competitions, chili cook-offs, and roast corn in husk. delish.

Off to the races...have kids make their own horse on stick! Great tutorial at lightbluegrey

clint eastwood...nuff said. get a projector, throw blankets on the lawn and watch old western classics. good times.
I'll leave you with my Fox segment and the ever so funny Tom Zizka to inspire you to throw down one fantastic rodeo shindig.

Giddy up y'all...
