Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope you’re all recovering from a fun weekend. I sure am. Here’s a little recap of mine!
Friday afternoon, I took off with 6 of my good friends for Cheyenne, WY for our 5th annual trip to Cheyenne Frontier Days. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? It is. Basically, it’s a giant rodeo that lasts about 10 days, with big name performers every night. So if you’re from Iowa, you’re probably thinking this sounds a lot like the Iowa State Fair. But it’s so much more.
We’ve really experienced it all here. We’ve gone in small groups of 3, up to 7, and it’s a blast either way! Here are some pictures from past years….
You also may remember that this is where I bumped into my now husband for the first time in about 3 years. It went a little something like this.
Me- ‘What are you doing here, are we in Iowa?’ (there was beer involved)
Aaron- ‘No, I live in Fort Collins now. It’s Amber, right?’
Me- ‘Nice try, it’s Amanda. And it’s ok-I have no idea what your name is. Let’s send a picture to Adam and Channing!’
The rest is history. I like to revisit this fateful spot outside the
porta-potty beer tent whenever we return.
This year, we had a super fun group of girls.
We hitched a ride down to the show from our ‘camping spot’ in a nice woman named Theresa’s pickup truck.
Then, we made our way to the show! Jake Owen and Jason Aldeen. Love them both. Not to mention, we saw Jason Aldeen in his tour bus on the way to Cheyenne from Denver! He was not as entertained by us as we were by him, but we were excited, nonetheless.
Elyse was asked to ‘put her beer in a cup here’…so she did!
At the end of the night we hopped in the limo Liz and I had arranged to pick us up. We are very well rounded right? Hitch hiking on the way there, limo cruising on the way back. We like to experience it all 🙂
I’m about 100% sure this limo driver is still cleaning out the back of his limo today. It had rained and hailed, and our boots looked like this:
We had a great time, and loved seeing Elyse and Liz’s aunt and uncle, Marty and Kathy.
That was definitely the highlight of my weekend! Here are a couple more highlights:
Aaron’s old neighbor, and kindergarten teacher sent us some homemade jams…YUM!
And today, we saw The Conjuring. If you go, wear a heart monitor in case you have minor heart failure. And a diaper…just in case 🙂 haha! I LOVE scary movies…but I’ll let you know how I feel about our decision to go about 2 am. We did go to the theater by my studio with newly installed recliners for EVERY seat. We are never!!! going to another theater again!
Hope you all had a great weekend! See ya back tomorrow!
