Cowgirls Like Us

I so enjoyed reading all of your comments on the Cowgirls post. I think we're all cowgirls at heart if nothing else. It is an attitude and a presence that a woman possesses. And I think we are all very full of attitude and presence around here!

I really hope you will take time to got to the National Cowgirl Fall of Fame website. I grew up with it in my hometown and never took full advantage of it. I went there many times as a young person but didn't spend the time to appreciate the women that came before me and laid the groundwork for the cowgirls of today. It has since been moved to Fort Worth and I hope to get up there in the near future.

I wanted to share some of the pictures of the inductees that I stole off their website. (shhh!)







I just love those old pictures! Those were some awesome women. So go find out who they are!

Now, guess who the husband drew out of the hat for the giveaway sign. I couldn't believe it. But I know this gal pretty well and I have to say that the sign fits her to a T! It would be my bloggin' sis and fellow cowgirl, Train Wreck!

Thanks to everyone who participated. I'll have to start thinking of something for the next giveaway in September. Stay tuned!

I've been so busy hauling my cowkids around that I haven't blogged for a week! But this was a great post. Here are my 5 cowgirl attributes.

1. I too have cowboy in my genes.
2. Get steer crap on my hands on a daily basis.
3. Can build fence, drive a tractor, dr. cattle or horses, snip horns, haul hay, load steers, ride a horse AND get bucked off.
4. Can work a 15 hour day doin' ranch work.
5. Love deep.

Congrats to Trainwreck!!
