Iron Cowboy Challenge

Some friends invited us to go to the PBR in Dallas on Saturday.  It was being held at the new Cowboy Stadium. The husband and I thought it would be cool to go check it out.  And enjoy seeing our friends.  We see them maybe once or twice a year.

We had no idea what we were about to experience...a once in a lifetime deal is how we explain it.  I tried to take pictures but the husband and I both decided there was no way the pictures can really express the feelings we had.  It was just so cool.  So let me tell ya about it.

Our tickets were for the Luxury Suite in the Owner's Club area.

Which means you go to these unmarked doors where 4 stadium personnel are standing guard.  They take your ticket, put a wristband on ya and welcome you in.

They also explain there is an open bar and food available.  You are welcome to whatever you want FREE of charge.  Which the husband and I neither drink but we love some food!

Bar

Chefs

They had chefs standing by to prepare your salad.  They also sprinkle your cupcakes!!  Can you believe that?  You tell them what flavor cupcake you want, then whatever sprinkles you want, and they sprinkle it for you.  I mean really, who can't sprinkle their own cupcake?  Well, last night I wasn't allowed.  Here is mine.

So we made it to our suite.  The view was awesome.  We were right on the 50 yard line.  But it really didn't matter because of the gigantic TV over the arena.  It didn't matter where you sat because all you do was watch the big screen.

Big Screen

Oh, did I mention we were in the suite next to Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys.  Yea, he was right there.

Oh, and look at this mirror in the bathroom.  It had a TV in it.  I had to get a picture of it.

There were TVs all over the place.  You couldn't miss the action if you wanted to.  It was just so cool.  The country folk came to town!

Dallas

I've got lots more pictures to show ya from the concerts to the bullriding to people we know I captured on the big screen.  Thought I better split it up over a few days.  So stay tuned...

You and your husband sure do clean up good! Wonderful photo! What a great outing for you. Make my cupcake chocolate with cherries on top please.

I'm so jealous! I watched it on TV and thought it was great. I can't even imagine being there in person and not having to sprinkle my own cupcakes. lol

My sis and I went to a PBR event in KC a few years ago and it was awesome but I'm sure it didn't even come close to what you experienced.

Go Traivs Briscoe!!!

Can't wait to see the rest of your pictures.

That is so awesome! You two looked mighty nice!

Lil Mama said...

DUDE!!! That is so cool. The Hunter would have killed to see that. I really like the whole cupcake thing. Not many placed serve cupcakes let alone sprinkle them for you.

How freakin sweet is that!!

My friend can get box seat tickets sometimes through work... and every once in a while they have free food and beer. But I think you totally upstaged that. AND your own bathroom! I'm impressed!!

K. T. Sparks said...

WOW what a fun time! That was so cool to be able to live at least a night like the "rich and famous" and you looked fabulous I must add! That looked like so much fun!!!!!

Tatersmama said...

Wow! All that goin' on.. and as impressed as I am, it was the idea of having your cupcake sprinkled that made me wanna say " What About ME?"
You two are just adorable in that photo! Look at you both, flashin' those dimples... Too cute!
