You probably get this a lot. This isn't the real Caesar's Palace is it?

Ah.. Vegas. I love it. There's something about that city that gets my motor running. I think it's the happy, party attitude of everyone there. It also reminds me and more-so Jake, of the movie The Hangover. He kept reminding me of quotes everywhere we went, especially when we walked into Caesar's Palace:).

We got lucky this year and I won a certificate at the Bellagio. If you ever have the chance to stay there, I'd highly recommend it. We also got spoiled with two limo rides because of my winnings, so that was pretty cool.

I went for a couple of days for work and then Jake met me for three nights of the National Finals Rodeo, shopping and celebrity looking.

I'm not sure if I've really reiterated how I have a 6th sense when it comes to celebrities, but its true. Just this year, I sniffed out Cameron Diaz on spring break, Michelle Bachman (not a "celebrity" per say, I know) at the ISU/Iowa football game, country singer Jake Owen at Buffalo Wild Wings in Des Moines and now I can add Jay Z to the mix. Jake and I were walking back up to our room on Saturday night and I noticed a noticeable crowd around one poker table. I told Jake that "someone" or "something" was going on. So, we stopped and there was Jay Z. The security was nutz around there, so I wasn't able to prove my sighting.
One celebrity I was able to get a picture with and meet was Joe Beaver, which was the highlight for me. 

Actually it was a little embarrassing when we met him because Jake and I were walking through one of the Cowboy Christmas' when we saw him heading to this table to sign autographs. So, we immediately got in the short line. To get to Joe, we had to pass by Steer Wrestler, Dean Gorsuch. I really don't get jacked up for PRCA cowboys unless they're really big time. So, because we had to pass Dean to get to Joe, I felt bad for not asking for his autograph. So, when we got to Dean, Jake spoke up and said, "You can make it out to Leon and Joyce". (That way we didn't end up with the autograph). He gave us his John Hancock and we moved to Joe where instead of a signature, we got a picture. Anyway, Jake and I were walking away and discussing how we're going to break the news to my Dad that we got Joe Beavers picture (and could have got his autograph for my parents), but instead got Dean's autograph (who they're not even going to know). We were too embarrassed to bring that autograph home to them, so we left it in the room.
 I wish you could see my new, hot boots I got out there, but they're cut off in the pic. I'll have to show them to you later:).

Well, have a Merry Christmas!... and when I say Merry Christmas I mean it... no Happy Holidays crap!

I recently came across these balls of deliciousness at Chef n Training (I'm also reminded of the hilarious Saturday Night Live skit with Alec Baldwin on Schwetty Balls). Anyway, three ingredients: Oreos, cream cheese and chocolate...yum!

It's Vegas Baby!!

Well, Monday I'm off to one of my favorite places in the United States... Sin City! I'll be on work duty Tuesday and Wednesday, but then on Wednesday night, watch out! Jake will be arriving that evening and we have a fun-filled four days of Cowboy Christmas and the National Finals Rodeo. I've been looking forward to this week for some time.

I can't wait to see what's hot, new and sexy in the world of western fashion. This year is a unique week for women and fashion as I'm able to already post some new trends from Vegas without even being there!

The Miss Rodeo American Pageant is now underway as yesterday was contestant check-in. It was also a time to introduce all of the queens. I noticed a couple of stunning outfits that really struck my eye that I just had to share with you. Remember, what we're seeing on Miss Rodeo America now, will soon become western fashion in a few years. She starts the trends to what you'll begin to see in Drysdales and Ropers Supply. So, that's why it's so fun to be to start seeing what the future Miss will be wearing!
Love the hat Miss Wyoming! This is such a unique color and the popular, black band around the hat really compliments her dark outfit. I love this. I look forward to more colored hats.

Miss Colorado is the start to a few choices that I wanted to point out. Although monochromatic color is still the "queening way", take notice the continued trend to break up the coloring with a big, fun belt.

This type of style started to become "in" when the bling belts started to become popular. I'm happy to see that it's transforming to cute belts.
Ladies with dark hair, take note of Miss Washington... yellow is a great color on you! I can't tell from the picture, but with an outfit like this, I would have so much fun accessorizing it with chunky turquoise.

Now, these two ladies take the cake in my eyes. I LOVE the boots. I remember back in 2000 when I was in the queen contest at the National High School Rodeo Finals and the Texas queen rocked a pair of leather embossed boots over her jeans. At the time, it was a little ahead of its time, but now, it's a must.

Because the boots are their main accessory, notice how neither one have much other color anywhere else. This is a smart move. If you have fun, crazy boots, make sure not to overpower it with a wild print elsewhere.
I am a little disappointed with the color faded jeans on Miss New Mexico. Even though this portion of the contest is casual and blue jeans are encouraged, these are way too faded for the Miss Rodeo American Pageant.

I look forward to much more of the week ahead. If you have GAC on satellite, make sure to watch for me on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. I'll make sure to wave at you while I'm at the rodeo. Have a great week!

Freestylin' in Pizza Ranch

We rarely go out to eat during the week, but for some reason the other night, Jake said he had a hankering for Pizza Ranch buffet (or buff-"ett", as my sister was call it). Heck, I wasn't going to argue with him :). He would definetly make my mom proud, as Pizza Ranch is her favorite stopping ground.

So, off we went to the Waukee Pizza Ranch. The Waukee location is one of the nicer Pizza Ranch locations around. I should know, outside of Jake and my parents, I've been to a ton of them! Jake and I usually have a contest to how many each one of us have been to by looking at their napkins, which have where every location is. However, because of Jake's travels with John Deere the last couple of years, he has surpassed me, so we don't play that game anymore.

When we walked through the restaurant to find a table to sit at, Jake sadly turned to me as we were walking by the salad bar and said that the ice cream machine was down. I'm not going to lie, it did deflate my enthusasim some, but then my eyes caught two glowing machines of goodness....

The manager was standing by these two alien-like machines with the colors of the Coca-Cola brand on them. Jake and I immediately got in line for who knows what. They are called Coca-Cola Freestyle machines. They take the place of the regular pop machines on tap. These machines literally have over 100 types of pop on them! They're amazing! The manager was there helping each person as they selected their drinks. It took a second to figure out the computer screen. They obviously, will stop the occasional 5 year-old from getting pop and spilling all over the floor.

Jake was boring. He just got a plain Diet Coke (even though he had 8 different Diet Cokes to choose from: Orange Diet, Grape Diet, etc.!). I tried a Strawberry Sprite Zero. Although I wouldn't get that kind again, I still felt like I achieved a great feat trying something new. I actually disliked it so much I wanted to get a new kind, but with the manager up there helping every single person, I was a little embarrassed to dump out my pop in front of him...stupid, I know.. :).

Although the Waukee Pizza Ranch is the first in Iowa to get these machines, they will be coming to every mall, restaurant, Taco Bell very soon. Love it!

Winter Wonderland

I know... it's been a while since I wrote on here. Too many crazy things lately have taken up my time. Including this insane snow this morning... what the heck?!
But, typical Iowa for you.. it's suppose to be near 60 degrees for the next few days. So, I don't have to fret too much yet.

However this snow is making get in the mood and makes me want to start wearing my fake Uggs all of the time. I love those darn things. I actually have three pairs, one red pair and two tan/brown pairs (ssshhhh, my secret).

Have you guys seen the new, western style of fake Uggs? I'm still trying to decide if I like them.
These are real westerny, but I don't know where I'd wear them. If I wanted to dress in my cowgirl garb, I'd just wear a pair of cowboy boots. I do dig the leather-look at the top though.

 Now these next few are the ones that complex me. I think they look a little, "little girlish/teenagerish" to me. I know my niece Sierra would probably go crazy for these zebra ones and they would look adorable on her.
Again, I'm not 100% convinced. I think this look is trying too hard. I'm all about big, bling and making a statement, but I'm just not feeling it. I may change my mind in the next couple of months, but for now, my official vote is a no for me, but like I was talking about my niece... adorable for her.

What are your thoughts?

Fall Chic

I love talking about western fashion. What I experienced this last weekend wasn't "western", but it was something..

Through my real job, I had the experience of going to the Gold Cup in The Plains, Virginia. Wow, what an experience! It is an annual steeple race that happens once in the summer and once in the fall. I went because a company we partner with in DC had a hospitality tent with some of our clients.

The event itself was fabulous! All of the drinks, food and fun you could imagine all rolled into big hats and English boots.
I didn't know what really to expect. I had never been to a steeple race before. It's quite different than the rodeos here in Iowa that I've been to.
For attire, anything was a go. I took a picture of this guy to show Jake, because I thought he'd find it humorous. Although you can't tell from the pic, he had a crochet hat that looked like a pumpkin. Yikes! Although that picture isn't a good example of what most wore, a gal on the bus ride there said the event was "fall chic".
Most wore dresses with tall boots. Many wore hats and those were all over the board. Some were just cute, large flower clips; others were gaudy saucers and then there was the mix of the Royal Wedding hats. (I wish I could have taken a picture of this gal in the pink above, because I'm pretty sure she wouldn't have seen me take a picture of her because of her tooling in front of her eyes.)
This is a picture of my boss and I waiting for one of the final races to begin. We actually brought two borrowed hats, but they were left on the bus. Mine was bright purple and Margie's was bright turquoise. They probably would have been just fine for the summer event, but they definitely weren't 'fall chic" for this event. So, we went hatless.

What I learned from this event, is that I need more hats in my wardrobe besides my probably 10 cowboy hats (literally- they're from my queening days) and my cadet caps I sell on just for an occasion like this. I'll keep you posted on my findings:)

Afghan Goat Korma... What?!

Recently, my life as been a roller coaster. I apologize to my readers for not posting within the last month. There has been some life-changing circumstances in my family's life that has taken a priority. Looking ahead, I have found a new beginning. Life is too short... Period. On that note, life is too short to  be unhappy, even for a second. So I will continue to write on what makes me happy in hopes that it will inspire you to no longer feel dragged down, stressed, or plainly to give a damn about things that don't matter. Live life to the fullest!

So today's writings is something that always puts a smile on my face.. food! Today I attended the World Food Prize Iowa Hunger Summit in Des Moines. This takes place every year during the World Food Prize Festival. If you don't know what that is, it's the Nobel Peace Prize of Food. It brings attention to world hunger and because of the world's increasing population, our land area decreasing and our need for more food in a smaller area increasing, it's more important than ever to bring attention to this issue. In addition, with us being in the agricultural industry, it makes me thankful for what I have and wants me to help others. God Bless Farmers!

For the Iowa Hunger Summit, those in attendance ate a meal that only the very lucky would get in a third world country.

Depending on how "unlucky" you were in your seating, the meals were the following:
  • Afghan Goat Korma, Naan and Rice (whatever that means)
  • Butternut Squash Soup and Apple Carrot Salad
  • Prosciutto Wrapped Tilapia with Roasted Carrots
  • Chicken Caesar Wrap, Cuban Black Bean Salad and Apple Slices (This was an exception since it was sponsored by the Iowa Department Education Bureau on Nutrition)
Iowa's Governor, Terry Brandstad, was in attendance and he said hello to a small group of students at my table.

My intern came along with me and she was given the tilapia plate. She said she loves fish and tilapia, but couldn't choke this down. It was very fishy and pretty much raw.
My favorite part was the boy sitting beside me and his goat dish. He devoured it! I don't even want to describe to you what it looked like.. 

And then there was my dish... I guess God thought I needed a little break in life. I was served the chicken wrap. It's my lucky day!

No, this was not served as third-world food, but with food in mind, I had to show you this quick Baked Mozzarella Stick recipe. It looks so good! I plan to make these very soon. All you do is wrap egg roll wrappers around string cheese, wrap those in foil and bake for a few minutes. We're all pretty lucky for where we live and how we grew up to enjoy something so delightful as this!

Talk About Weird...

That pretty much sums up my blog today.

The crisp, fall air remind me of so many things... sweatshirts, football, my birthday, our anniversary and Halloween. Jake and I always carve pumpkins around October to celebrate Halloween, but here's a new one for you, how about carving a pumpkin from a pear tree? (It almost sounds like it came out of a Christmas song.)

Seriously though, a story came out that a couple in Greenfield, Iowa are the talk of the town because a random pumpkin started growing in their pear tree at home. The story from KCCI said that there was a pumpkin that was found growing in a tree in Des Moines last year. What the heck?! Have you ever had anything weird start growing in places it shouldn't of?

I also finally have a few pictures from my dad's birthday the other weekend ago. Birthday's aren't weird, but the Soukup birthday's might seem weird to some. It doesn't get much more redneck than shooting guns, grilling hot dogs and karaoke (or ker-o-kee, as my mom would say)- oh ya, that's how the Soukup's have a birthday party!
My dad was showing my mom how to shoot his handgun.. talk about scary!

 We also had the Taylor Swift threesome putting on a concert during the party. My niece and two friends were singing their hearts out. They cracked me up!

However, one of my favorite parts of the day was dear Rhonda. She brought out the fake butt and used it to distract the men. Really, not a great idea while they're shooting guns, but everything turned out okay. Her boobs looked pretty nice too. I actually find it funny that Brad is bending over at the opportune time when I was taking this picture. And to keep with the "weird" theme... there's actually nothing weird at all about these two pictures. It's just Rhonda. Ha! :)

New Purses- Wilder than Ever

Just arrived... new Krazy Cowgirl merchandise! There are more purses added and a few new necklaces on the website. As my title states, a few of them are from the wild side! When I first started the business a couple of years ago, I first sold more subtle colors in handbags like blacks and browns; however, those weren't the hot sellers. When clients wanted a new, funky purse, they wanted fun colors. So, I'm really pulling that in this round of handbags. I'd love to hear feedback!

Also, stay tuned to the blog in the next few weeks... because there may be something special in it for you (other than the already awesome reading material)!

Yeah For Farm Boys!

I got an email through an ag-marketing company the other day talking about this viral video on the internet that has been a huge hit. It's a satire, but it is also showing that the new generation of agriculture can have fun. I love dumb humor, so I found this farmer from California hilarious!
And speaking of good ol' farm boys.. how about them Cyclones?!!! From those of you not from Iowa, the Iowa vs. Iowa State football game every year is literally, a national holiday. Each state has the same rivalries, so I'm sure you can relate. Jake and I got lucky enough to fall into some tickets and I'm so happy we did. It was the best game of football that I've ever watched. It was exciting, went into 3 overtimes, it was sunny (so I got a slammin' tan) and ISU won!!

Jake and I even rushed the field.. everyone was doing it..:) We made our way to the cement barrier, where Jake jumped probably 7 feet to the field. There I was with a denim skirt jumping into Jake's arms... Romeo, I know. However, I never thought about getting back up the cement barrier. Once we yelled, took a quick picture on the field and watched the players walk back to the locker rooms, Jake attempted to convince me to jump and he'll pull me up.... again, in a skirt. I'm sure I was causing a scene saying that there was no way I was showing my sweet buns to 56,000 people. Then, some very nice older gentleman, said, "It's okay hun, nobody will look" and he pushed me up. Lordy.
My other exciting moment is when I noticed cameras over by someones tailgate. I told Jake that I thought someone famous was over there, so I told him, "let's go"! I wiggled my way into the middle of crowd and found Michelle Bachman standing right there. Although I don't have a picture, I shook her hand, said hello and kept on my way (my mom has to be proud:)). Jake thinks I can smell celebrities from a mile away (there was also an incident over spring break when I saw Cameron Diaz and nobody else did). It's funny really, I wish I could smell out more "real" celebrities, like Cameron and not so much Michelle... maybe George Strait, Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock or David Beckham, you get the picture.

I just had to pass this along... yikes!

A giant crocodile was captured alive in the . It weighed 2,370 pounds and was over 21 feet long. It looks like a dinosaur. I'd like to see the guys from Swamp People attempt this one!

I'm Not Here For a Long Time, I'm Here For A Good Time

One of my boss' dad passed away the other day and our office attended the funeral. It was incredibly sad, even for someone like myself who never met the man. I was tearing up and smiling at the same time as they pushed the casket out of the church because they played the Iowa fight song on the piano. At that point I thought, "Wow, how cool." It also made me think that maybe some are going about funerals all wrong and maybe we should all have our own, "Iowa fight song".

My dad has always joked that when he goes, he wants to be strapped to a horse and have someone let the horse go down the streets of Prairieburg, Iowa (I know, he's crazy, ha!). But honestly, as morbid as it sounds, I decided that I want my passing to be a celebration! I want to have a party, have cranberry and vodka drinks for everyone and this new song of George Strait's playing in the background.


Although, I don't plan on anything happening for at least 126 years (I'm hoping in the next few years they'll come out with a pill that will make us live another 100 years), but friends take note! I want to live my life now like I'm in a party and I want to go out with the partying continuing behind me.

Bunco Dessert Fix

Is anyone else in a Bunco club? I started about a year ago, meeting with a group of girls once a month. It's so easy and really fun.We just roll dice, drink and eat!

With our monthly game tomorrow, I had to whip something up in a hurry. I've had a hankering for peanut butter and chocolate, so I got on my favorite recipe website, and searched under desserts. I love the way this website breaks recipe ideas down in so many ways. If you are in need of a dessert or appetizer, for instance, they have it broke down by category  or if you have certain ingredients at home and need ideas, they have that too. The best; however, are the pictures. I'm definitely a visual learner. I'm one of those people at restaurants who order whatever dish is pictured on the menu.

So, I had to share this Peanut Butter Cup recipe because it's a no-brainer to make and very delicious!

One in the muffin, one for me...

Peanut Butter Cups
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
3 teaspoons baking poweder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/3 cup shortening
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs 
Miniature chocolate-covered peanut butter cup candis, unwrapped

Mix all ingredients together and fill a muffin tin, lined with muffin wrappers, 3/4 full. Put a peanut putter cup candy in each of the fillings. Bake for 18 minutes on 350 degrees and wholla!
The only problem I ran into is that mine didn't turn out that pretty. My batter wrapped on top of the candy, so you don't see it when it's done baking, but watch out... when you open the yummy goodness, the peanut butter cup is there waiting for you.

If you know of anyone looking for a nice pleasure horse for sale- let me know. She's needs to go!

Just a disclaimer... this was the first ride of the year on her! She'll make her head more level and slow her gait down with another ride or two.

Please pass it on!

I Wish It Was Fair Time All Year Long

Ahhh... the Iowa State Fair.. I LOVE it! I wish that it was the fair all year long. If you've never experienced the Iowa State Fair, you honestly have not lived. Don't you know that it was on the New York Times list of "1,000 Places to See Before You Die"? So, it's not just me saying this...

One of the best things to do at the fair is eat. At this years' fair, besides the livestock shows and Stockman's, Jake and I experienced a few "firsts".

1st- Jake tried his first fried Snickers and fell deeply in love.

1st- At the 2011 fair, one of the newest additions to the artery clogging yummy goodness was fried butter. Yes, they literally took a stick of butter, cut it length ways, put it on a stick, dipped it in a batter and deep fried it. Then, they poured a glaze to add to the madness.
Although it makes you want to vomit just looking at it, it was seriously pretty good. It tasted like a donut. I only had a bite, just to say I tried it, because I heard if you ate an entire stick, you would have to run 11 miles to burn it off and that would never happen.

This was the booth dipping the butter in batter before deep fat frying it.
Ryan was the brave sole that took the first bite. He was savoring the flavors on his pallet before giving us the verdict.

Really Mr. Vegan.. Really?

When I say this, I'm reminded of the weekly Saturday Night Live Weekend Update's with Seth Meyer and Amy Poehler when they make fun of something so ridiculous... really...I mean, really...

If you've been following the news, a few days ago, there was a story about one of my favorite places on earth... the Iowa State Fair. The unfortunate part was that the story was about a vegan protest with the butter cow (again, I would say, "really?"). This story made world news for gosh sakes! You can check the story out here. Long story short, a vegan attached a small sign with tape on the glass of the butter cow display at the Iowa State Fair that read "Go vegan".

Before I go off the deep end on how inappropriate and lack luster this statement is in so many ways... I had to show you this article in an opinion section of a local newspaper in Vinton, Iowa. I scraped sections to give you a feel of how awesome this article is. It is in response to the sign posted at the fair. Although proper use of punctuation was not noted, the writer makes some great points that makes me laugh.

"Congratulations! Your feat was pretty impressive...." "However, I think you should know that by putting a piece of paper with tape on it on the cow carved in butter, you were putting a product from a dead cow on a product from a living cow."

"Butter only uses stuff from living cows. Paper, however, is made in part from meat by-products from dead animals in it. Many adhesives, as well. So the industry that you targeted with your protest actually provided you with the technology to express yourself."

"But that's not the only way you used meat by-products during your protest about the use of meat."

"If you drove your car -- or even if you are an environmentalist who rode your bike to the State Fair -- meat by-products made that possible, as well. The ball bearings that make your wheels move are made with inedible meat by-products. The rubber in your tires, too, has ingredients from dead animals. Face it, Dude: Some cow had to die so you could put your buy some paper and some tape, and go to the State Fair to put that protest on the Butter Cow."

"You like to say that as a vegan, you don't use meat in any way. Oh yes, you do. Every day. Lots of ways. You may not "eat" meat, and there's nothing wrong with that, although the thought of using soy products to replace ice cream seems rather nasty, at least to me. I don't think that "iced dessert made from soybeans, not ice cream" is a very appealing marketing tool. But according to both the meat producers, and Vegan web sites, just about everything you use every day has some sort of meat by-product in it. Here are just a few: marshmallows, gelatin, plaster, asphalt, insulation, lubricants, lipstick, hand cream, fireworks, buttons, piano keys, glue, fertilizer (for all of those vegetables you grow to replace meat in your diet), paper, wallpaper, sandpaper, combs, toothbrushes, and even violin strings. And I haven't even mentioned medical uses, especially insulin. It takes the insulin from the pancreases of 26 cattle to keep one diabetic alive for one year. So if you have any close friends or relatives who are diabetic, you may want to keep that whole "go vegan" thing to yourself."

If you think about it, this sign says a lot. It says how uneducated some (I said some) vegans are and to be honest, it's a little scary. I completely understand those who don't like the taste of meat or choose to not eat meat for understandable reasons. What I do have a problem with is the people who are ill informed about livestock, farming and meat production in general. Those people tend to be the louder individuals who puke information out with no backing and push this type of lifestyle on people.

What people really need to know is what these types of people and statements do for the backbone of our country, the farmers. With more and more people going vegan, it puts a strain on farming, livestock prices, the cost to produce other food and really, everyone's bottom dollar. There is always a trickle effect and pushing agriculture out of the United States will have life-threatening effects on our country and the way that everyone lives. Has anyone heard of the circle of life? Do you know why we're all living and breathing today? It's not because our ancestors sat a computer all day for a living and ate lettuce. It's because our ancestors made a living doing what they had to do to make our lives easier.

Whewww- that feels good to get that out. Do I hear an AMEN!

Dressing in Style

Does anyone order through catalogs? What I usually do is if I get a catalog and see something I like, I'll usually then go online and see if it's cheaper. Most of the time it's easier for me to order online anyway- it may be a generational thing. Anyway, I'm a fan of  National Roper Supply. They don't send out a catalog unless you ask for one and they usually just send the one. They have unique items that you won't find in a Drysdales, Rod's or definitely Sheplers. Since I've been in a "dress" mood lately, I got on NRS' ladies apparel tab online and found some really cute dresses that I had to show you. They are a little pricey ($55-$75) for what they are, but they are unique. I love the crosses! I'm sure I'll be seeing more of these at the National Finals Rodeo this December.
I also had to show you my latest purchase below from Von Maur. I love the colors, especially since I nearly always wear black, so it's a nice change. I again can where this with heals (which I have already) or with a pair of cute cowboy boots. Usually at Von Maur I only look at the sale racks, but this dress caught my eye and I had to have it. 
Bailey Blue Juniors   Paisley Dress
There is also a ton of options for jewelry with this dress and even the ones above to dress it up western-style. These are a few from Krazy Cowgirl. I love turquoise and red together!

The funny thing about it is that I bought it for myself for a late Mother's Day gift. Don't get any ideas!... We don't have kids nor a pet for that matter, but Jake and I buy ourselves little gifts for Mothers/Fathers Day, just as an excuse to buy something. It makes us feel good that we just don't blow money to be spending it, there's at least some substance behind it, right? :)
