Rodeo Wear and BBQ: Texas Style!


When the month of February comes around, most  people think of Valentine’s Day….but in San Antonio, we think…It’s Time to Rodeo!!


The San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo has been voted the best large arena rodeo for nine years in a row and, I have to say, we are quite proud of the honor.  I’ve been raised attending rodeos and a good rodeo has always felt like home!
So, in honor of the rodeo, I am wearing denim on denim.  I do not own any traditional western wear...surprisingly as proud as I am to be Texan, I do not really like real western wear…I am not a plaid shirt, big belt buckle kind of girl!  I prefer to fashion my own.  When we attend an event, I usually wear my jeans, a white buttoned down shirt, a brown or leather jacket, boots, and lots of turquoise!!  The hat is Mr. B’s….he will wear it with his jeans and boots.  All of our adult children wear western boots and have since they first walked.

A great way to get ready for two weeks of rodeo is to go to Adkins, Texas and eat a little BBQ at Texas Pride.  Since I am watching the carbs, I had to say no to their amazing Peach Cobbler and bread…but the smoked turkey and beans were just right. The food is delicious and, of course, where else can you get catering for the oilfield!!  We discovered Texas Pride years ago when traveling to small towns for Friday Night football games.  The team on the bus had to drive right by it…the parents in the cars, just had to make a stop!!


So,  YE HAW, have a great Monday, everyone!!  Make sure you visit the talented bloggers of Visible Monday!!  and MONDAY MINGLE!!

  10. Wow. I love love horses!
    The only rodeo I went to was in Florida. Now you make me dream of watching an authentic Texan one. Denim is of course a must. And you wear denim beautifully! I am on for the party. Hope it's not too late. Will wear a kerchief scarf for sure... to look like a real (French!) cowgirl...
    See you there :-)

  17. Denim-on-denim would be my idea of western wear as well. And with the boots, you look ready for any event, western or not.

  21. For me turquoise jewelry represents western style so I don't think you have to wear western wear. You look fabulous in yours version.

    Xoxo,

  22. You did a great job of pulling off denim with denim. Love the red/orange accent with it and the jewelry is perfect! I think you made us all quite hungry. Have a great time at the rodeo, sounds like a blast.
