This year to celebrate it's 10th Anniversary, they went back to the original format and my youngest and I signed up immediately. The event did not fail to please. We had such a great time and met so many lovely women. And it gave me, one on one time with my girl. This event always gets to us. It makes us both remember my uterine cancer 4 years ago and how much support and love she gave me. And how grateful we are that I am still cancer free and going strong. High five!
This is how we look at the beginning, before the 94 degree day and the smoke in the air takes it's toll on us (the alcohol didn't help either)...lol
Lots of pretty decor and a lovely spread of finger foods. Wine and Beer and all the pop and water you could want. Later we would get Sub Sandwiches and designer cupcakes, but I was so hot by then I didn't want to take anymore pictures....lol
Em found some new friends and they were instantly BFF's. Great girls! And I found me some cowboys and they were instantly my BFF's.
We then head out into the arena and we attend the Rodeo Workshop. This is where they will attempt to teach us all the ways of the sport. As you can see my hair is now up and in my hat and I am sucking back on the beer like there is no tomorrow.
Em is the first to raise her hand at each station and here she has roped her steer and then snagged a cowboy. He looks happy.
Now I am not sure if she is more enamored with the horse or the cowboy, maybe a little bit of both. Onward to the Bull Riding and they applauded her form and flair. I am sure they do not see this event done in sparkly skirts very often.
Time for a break with my lovely lady and some mingling. Kisses to Chicks and Chaps. We love them!
They had a free photo booth which was a hoot! We kept going back and they kept taking our picture. Before long it was time to say Good-Bye. We could have stayed for the rodeo but I half to admit I was exhausted. And sooooo hot! We had such a great time and they did such a great job with treating us like Fair Royalty. I hope we raised a bunch of bucks and I hope it helps a lot of women. Always, Kit
