Calgary Stampede…

*me…back in my Calgary Stampede Ranchgirl days…*

The countdown is on!!

Soon it will be the biggest show on earth here in Calgary and I am excited! This year I am planning to head down there much more than once, and hopefully kid free…

Yes, we will be taking them one day, but it’s a bit much navigating the crowd and such with two kids that would much rather wander off than sit with mommy and people watch.

That is one of my favorite things to do at Stampede.

I’m guilty, I admit it.

I LOVE it!

People get into such amazing Stampede spirit and dress to the nines for it. LOVE!

And this year I am planning to take my camera down and capture some of that spirit!! Can’t wait!!

Are you going?!? Have you ever been?! What is your favorite part?!

Have you heard of the blue hour?!

This is amazing! I read about this from Boogieboard Cottage and had to try it for myself. Basically at BlueHourSite you can find the hour in your local area that will give you amazing evening photos.

 I have yet to try this…mostly because I tend to be in bed by 8 p.m.

I know.

But if you get out there, could you send me some of your pictures?! I would love to post them!!

Hope you have a great day!!

Hello my dear friends!!

I am in need of some help…

Ok, actually, a reader named Shell is…

She wrote me hoping I could help her come up with a fabulous name for her fledgling cattle farm and since my ideas are okay…

I’m SURE yours are much more creative!

” I am such a GIRLY GIRL! I am the kinda girl who will be out there in uggs boots and LV ear rings! LOL! 😉 I am slowing learning the farming isn’t working with shorts and bikini top! Everybody I know been trying to come up with ideas, but just nothing is like WAM BAM HELL YEA! =) For the most part I want girly. I am super girly and I think my farm name should reflect me.  I grew up on the lake and honesty know nothing ’bout cattle but I always say life and learn, that’s just part of life, if there is a will there is a way.Sounds GREAT! Just remember GIRLY! GIRLY GIRLY GIRLY! It’s going to be a cattle farm (with) some goats here and there if that helps. Maybe later on a some pigs and chickens..whatever else.  I don’t want the plain jane like people use their name or area names.  Catchy and SCREAMS buy my big beautiful beefy cows Farmer Shell, too hot to trot, raised! LOL! 😉 Thanks!” ~Shell

So I thought what better way to come up with a FABULOUS name than throw it out to you all!!

Thanks all and we look forward to hearing your suggestions!!!!
