Fancy This Fridays #53

Well hello there lovelies! 
Welcome to the first Fancy This Fridays of December
So… Sorry this is up late today… But I have a decent excuse. 
Last night was the first round in the 2011 National Finals Rodeo

That’s like our Super Bowl, or World Series, or…. 
Not quite as good as the Olympics since it happens every year… but you get the point. 

Every year since we started dating the hubs and I have waited for, then watched with excitement, rooting for different contestants, choosing who we thought would win, during the NFR. 
It’s our thing. We’ve even been to Vegas several times during the NFR… 

Out and about in Vegas – 2008
Can I just say, Las Vegas is an entirely different place when the cowboys come to town. Really. 
We’ve been during other times of the year too… and it’s just not the same. πŸ™‚

Last night we joined some friends for a steak dinner, a friendly game of ‘betting’ who would win the team roping and as always a round or two on the cowboy toy. (A small roping dummy.)
They take it kind of serious… haha. 

Pardon the spots… It’s time for a new camera… 
Hint hint hubs. πŸ˜‰
Anywho… guess who picked the highest placing team? Oh yep! I haven’t been doing this for this many years for nothing! hahaha. 

So tonight when you’re channel surfing and there’s nothing but reruns on anyway, flip over to GAC and check it out (8PM Mountain time). There’s ten rounds of the NFR, so for the next nine evenings you know where we’ll be… gathered around a TV somewhere rooting for our chosen team of the night. 
It is the Top 15 in each rodeo sport in the world, so anyone can win during any given round.
Makes for an exciting week and a half during December. πŸ™‚

Have a lovely weekend friends! 
And in the meantime, show us what you got!!! 
No rules this week, just link it up and please share some love with a few other links. πŸ™‚

    Ya know I lived in Vegas for a while YEARS ago. AND when the NFR came to town all my friends and coworkers kept cracking jokes about how as a born n raised Texan I must "really feel at home" as if Houston is nothing but cowboys!!! Ur right about Vegas being a totally differant city! It's 100% cowboy during the rodeo.

  8. Hope your having a great weekend in Vegas! Enjoy the NFR. It's like the Calgary Stampede for us up here in Canada!

  10. I love cowboys, DUH, there is a reason my favorite movie is 8 seconds(:

    Too bad Lane Frost isn't here to announce πŸ™
