Where the sun actually shines.......

What have I been up to lately you ask.....well here is a hint:

You guessed it!  I was in Denver for the National Western Stock Show.  If you have never been it is a must for your bucket list.  Not only do you get to see the best of the best animals in the show industry you get some pretty amazing shopping as well......stay tuned and you will see some top picks from the trade show.  Denver is a great place to meet many people in the livestock industry and I always get to bump into many friends that I have met over the years and even got to meet a social media friend in person Crystal Cattle!

When I say the best of the best this is one of the top shows that people come to to compete for titles and display bulls and promote what you have worked so hard on, your livestock.  One of the bulls that was a big audience attraction was Matt Lautner's bull General Lee
Isn't he handsome?  And quite a tall bull at that!  Are you distracted by the sun and lack of snow in the picture....yeah we couldn't get over it either.

We couldn't have asked for better weather while we were out there.
Do you guys see that sunshine and that we are not wearing coats!!!  It was sunny and 60 degrees...in January.  It sure beats the negative digits we were experiencing back in Ohio!

Now on to the most important part of the trip.....the shopping!!!  The trade show is awesome for home decor, clothing, boots, everything and anything!  Here are a couple of my favorite things that you all need to have because it will make your life complete and full of happiness:
Don't judge me and yes I bought this shower head.  It is huge and like you are showering in the rain forest (I've never showered in the rain forest but this is what I imagine it to be like)  You will find a new found love for showering.....trust me. You can purchase yourself one at www.showerme.com
Twisted X Bomber Boat Shoe......if you are a Sperry lover these will take you to the next level.  I loved Sperry's, then I bought these!  They are a must have!  I wear mine all the time and they feel like you are walking on clouds....for real!

To end the trip and a huge suggestion for any of you that go out and attend the NWSS you really should check out the concerts going on at the Grizzly Rose.  I love the Grizzly Rose because they bring alot of my favorite Texas country red dirt musicians up to play which just shows they know great music!  The weekend we were there they had Josh Abbott Band and Williams Clark Green playing.  You all need to go to iTunes and download their albums because you won't regret it!  Trust Me!
And that has been my recent travels and what has been consuming my life lately!  Stay tuned because the facebook fan page is about to reach 200 followers which means a GIVEAWAY!!!!



  1. Hm, I really like those shoes and wonder if I can't justify buying them for work at the new job - a week of being on my feet all day and my feet are KILLING me. I think I may have to reward myself when I get my first paycheck!

    1. You will love them! Totally worth the money! Plus if you have a small foot like a 7 or smaller you can actually get a kids size and they're only $60! If u do order a pair get a 1/2 size smaller. They run big!!

  2. The weather has been crazy this winter! Who would of thought you would have 60 degrees in CO, in January! Thanks for sharing your trip with all of. :)
