Quinn's Shower & Yee Haw!!!

First of all, I was the only one out of Brittney, Thompson, and Molly to not post pictures of Brittney & Quinn's precious baby shower 2 weekends ago (yes, I'm REALLY behind). So, even though it's late, I have to share. It was SO much fun spoiling this sweet baby that we don't even know yet. We can't wait to meet him though! I'm especially fond of our new "tradition picture" that will be taken when each of us is pregnant. I don't know what's going to happen if two of us are pregnant at the same time because the pregnant one is supposed to stand on the end. Hmmm....we'll have to cross that bridge IF & when we get there!


Is she not just the most beautiful mommy-to-be ever?? We should all be so lucky!

OK, so after the weekend of the shower, Ryan and I decided that we needed to take advantage of living back in Texas. So, we got tickets to the Houston rodeo and Pat Green concert last Friday night. It was a lot of fun! I hadn't been to a rodeo since college, and it was the Abilene rodeo, so this was a lot bigger and better. Anyway, we got there in time to see barrel racing, bull riding (YIKES!), the calf chases (which were hilarious), and the chuckwagon races. Pat Green was really good, and Jack Ingram made a guest appearance, so that was fun. It took me back to our college days when we used to country dance at the "Mansion" (Ryan's fraternity house) every Thursday night.

Here's a shot of the bull rider who won. We definitely had "nose bleed" seats, so my pictures are taken from really far away with as much zoom as possible, and they're still horrible! Oh well...we had fun!

I hate to admit it, but I think when Ryan goes with the "redneck look" he is so stinkin' hot! I love when he wears a little bit of scruff on his face and a pearl snap shirt. :) In the picture below, can you see the kid in the middle that is hanging on to the calf's tail and is being drug around the whole arena?! It was freakin hilarious.

Your words and the pics are very sweet! Thank you for driving so far and working so hard to make the shower so special! I'm so lucky to have you girls in my life...I just don't know what I'd do without you! You're right..."it's not like us to let a tradition die!" We're one of a kind for sure!:) ... And, cute pics at the rodeo! It's funny that you say Ryan is scruffy! Matt is
"Jesus" again this year in the play and he has a MASSIVE beard! I need to post pics! He's so mad that Baby Quinn is going to meet him that way! I try to reassure him that Q won't know or care!!! HA! Anyway, I LOVE YOU! Can't wait tosee you in a few weeks..and to introduce you to my little man! :) AHHHHH!

For the record...there is no baby coming anytime soon. Stop these rumors people! This time last year Ryan was just leaving for Iraq. I still want to live with him for a little while and just be a WIFE. :)

Great pictures! Brittney is so cute pregnant! What a blessing it is that you all are still such good friends.

Keri and I are jealous that you got to see Pat Green!

I hadn't thought about 2 of us being pregnant at the same time....maybe it won't happen! Although you and I tend to do things pretty close together! Looks like y'all had fun at the rodeo!
