Horses Don't Work, Why Should I?


I’m a Southern girl so you know I love me some rodeos and BBQ cook-offs! Today marks the start of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s BBQ Cook-off and our awesome boss is taking our whole department at noon today! Yep, we get to miss the rest of work today to go gorge ourselves on yard stick margaritas, funnel cakes, and sausages on a stick!! Yum!! I KNOW there are some Southern ladies out there who will appreciate this and know exactly what I am talking about!

The Cook-off lasts all weekend and it gets a little crazy at night – the best part is the actual “rodeo” starts directly after and some of my fave country stars will be performing (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts!!!). If you have never been and you live in the area, you NEED to go. It is a blast!


I take that back – the BEST part is that the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo gives away over $10 million in scholarships EVERY year. There are a ton of great kids that really benefit from this and it is so cool so be a part of it all!

Ya’ll have an awesome day – I wish ya’ll could go with me!!

XOXO

I am so jealous that your boss is taking you all today! We have tickets for the cookoff this weekend, but I'm not sure if we're going to make it :( I LOVE the rodeo! We go every year! Have fun and eat lots of yummy food!

Is there anything better than the smell of meat in a smoker? I think not!!
