Cook Off Weekend!

Linking up with Sami this morning for Weekend Shenanigans! I was still pretty sleepy when I woke up this morning, but I had a great weekend. Too bad today is not a holiday, that would have been nice (wishful thinking).....I hope everyone had good weekend!! This weekend in Houston was the official kick off to The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo! If you are not familiar with Cook Off (Also known as the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest) it's basically a huge 3 day party with several hundred BBQ cook off teams that compete as well as bands, dancing, eating, drinking and most important helping raise money for charity scholarships! There are over 200,000 people that come out! 


I came home to new shoes on Friday!! I'm looking forward to Spring! 

Starting off my Saturday morning off right!

A beautiful sunset at Cook off

First things first, some BBQ and an ice cold beer!

Lisa, Laila and I

We did a lot of tent hopping on Saturday night and we found a band that is AWESOME!! 
Cannot wait to see them again soon!

So much fun!!

Ready to Rodeo!

Sunday we had lunch at our favorite food truck and picked up a few plants!

We planted a few things here and there, while we had a little observer! 
Then we rode our bikes around! It was such a beautiful day out!! 


  1. I'm pretty sure Go Texan Day & the Monday after cook off SHOULD be a holiday.

    Who do we talk to about this? lol

    Stopping by from the Weekend Shenanigans link up :)

  2. I love BBQ cook off! I'm sad we weren't able to go this year. Looks like y'all had a great time!

    1. It's always a lot of fun until you want to leave (traffic nightmare) lol!

  3. Looks like fun. Love your cat! Pet him for me. :) What's the cat's name? The food looks yummy. Jealous of the nice weather!! Waiting on another foot of snow to arrive.

    1. Thank you! His name is Riley and he loves being outside! I hope you all get a break from all the snow soon!

  4. Sounds fun! I have tried lots of food trucks, but never Good Dog. Glad to hear that you recommend them!

    1. They are really good and I love that they use fresh ingredients, like so many other food trucks!

  5. Those shoes are SO cute and definitely scream Spring!

  6. love the new shoes! and I'm so jealous I'm missing the rodeo, have some BBQ for me!
