Friday Loves | My First HoustonRodeo

Happy Friday loves! This week has felt long and I've been off since the time change...still not adjusting well to that. I think if they want to change the time, we should have that whole week off, whose with me?!

Anyway at least this week was fun, albeit long. If you followed along on my Snapchat story (npat62) or Instagram stories (npat62) you probably saw all my over-snapping from my very first time at the Houston Rodeo. It was such a blast and even though I was beyond exhausted that night after we got home, it was well worth going to bed a little later than usual.

We got there early enough to walk around the carnival grounds, play some games and grab some yummy food (see: saying Oo I need that to just about anything). I played one game and luckily won (beating out a bunch of kids, whoops) to win my Hello Kitty mermaid plush...I love her and am glad I only had to spend $5 to win her.

After walking and eating our way through the carnival grounds, we headed inside to our seats to catch the actual rodeo shows. There was a lot of cowboy stuff going on, here are the few pictures that I took of that (mostly everything else were videos).

I was kinda bummed that they only had one event that featured female riders, but that was probably one of my favorite events of the night. Of course my absolute favorite event was mutton bustin'. If you don't know what that is, you need to youtube it asap. Imagine bull riding except take out the bull and add sheep and then a small human gripping on for dear life as long as they can stay on...that equals just about the cutest thing ever. Also this yardstick pina colada was much needed after all that walking around.

Once the rodeo events were all through with, they transformed the area with a stage ready for Sam Hunt to entertain us for the next hour. He was such a good performer and even though we were all the way up there, we still had an awesome view of the revolving stage! It makes me even more excited for Florida Georgia Line (incase you missed all my snaps and instastories, be sure to catch them this coming Monday when I Rodeo again!)


Overall it was such a fun time and I cannot wait to experience it one more time this year! Next year hubby and I already decided we need to take a day off from work to enjoy the full day of events. If you've never been to Houston or to a rodeo, I highly highly recommend partaking in the fun next year. I already convinced many of my friends and family to make the trip up next year to experience it! 

Linking up with AndreaAprilKatieand Amanda!

  3. Adorable outfit for the rodeo and so great you're getting to experience all the Texas culture and fun despite losing some sleep. The Hello Kitty pillow is too cute and such a score for $5!

  4. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your time at the Rodeo! It really is a blast, and you can always find something new or different to experience every time you go! I hope that this next trip is just as much fun!
