So I met somebody...

Hey everyone!

See this pic with my daughter...sigh...back in the good ol' days when my collar bone was in one piece??? Those days are gone... I was happy back then, I didn't appreciate the collar bone like I should have, and NOW my collar bone/clavicle modeling is no longer...sigh. HEHEHEHEHE...

If you can't tell or don't know... I'm feeling MUCH better now! MUCH MUCH MUCH better!

I'm not healed. But I can lift my arm to take pictures and I can edit on my computer. Me so happy! :)

So you all have been so great about still coming to my blog and I want you to know that I have some posts up my sleeve so although I still won't be posting obsessively like before... I've some funny things to tell you and I can't keep them to myself!

So I met someone.

I went to Vegas and met someone. My curiosity got the best of me and I took my broken self off alone in our little Honda Accord and drove myself-literally single handed-down to Vegas, not just to meet up with someone, but to also connect with my new LOVE.

If blogs aren't for confessions what ARE they good for?

So here I go... I'm spilling the beans.

On Sunday, November 1st 2009, I, Shelle, drove myself down to Vegas to go watch BULL RIDING (My new found LOVE since I first saw it at the beginning of the year this year-reruns, but I fell in love anyway)!!! That's right... I went down and met up with Jules at IT IS JUST JULES and went to the Finals of the PBR in Vegas!!! You GUYS first let me just tell you Jules is just as fun and outgoing as she is on her blog, plus she was willing to go to watch Bull Riding with me so that means she is pretty much awesome!

When I met up with her she had a gift for me. Peeps...she makes jewelry, and not fuddy duddy jewelry, but really really cute jewelry! Pictured below! :)



We honestly had so much fun.

And the PBR EVENT! You guys I ate it up! I loved every second of it. I sat there and drank in everything and had my little score sheet and whooped and hollered like a professional when they guys rode 8 seconds and gave an appropriate gasp when someone got hurt or got to close to the bull. It's so unpredictable and exciting. So did I tell you I loved it? In fact, I didn't even have the mind to take more pictures than this one:

And thankfully for Jules and her brain we got this one together! Since my collarbone was out of a commission...she took the picture... her arms are good for that. The girl is long and skinny...no lie...sigh, I was envious.

Forgive the quality it's a phone pic!

There were cowboys and wranglers and bulls and clowns and bull fighters and lights and music and...aaahhhh just to fun. I didn't even really talk to anyone around me...if you know me you are surprised huh! I didn't, I just watched. I'm still giddy thinking about it! Anybody ever needs someone to go to an event with... PICK ME!!!

Then I took JULES to Cheesecake Factory and she is such a light weight we couldn't even try the cheesecake, she got full to fast!!! lol! But the conversation was good and easy going like we have been friends for years! We took this picture after eating...again, she took the pic...her arms... her arms... remember?

So I met someone and connected with a new love.

Tell me what you guys have been up to! I'm coming around to visit you on your blogs... but I want to hear the funniest thing you have done since I've been away! :)

Here is how I feel while wearing this figure 8 brace! Just so you all know...


Love,


P.S. You have to go read the hilarious post that Sage wrote about his wife's spending habits over on Real World--HA! It is so funny! I'm not kidding! Go give him some comment love! :)

You are sooo funny. My arm worked 'cuz it wasn't broken, because I am too lazy to get my butt on a bike - doh!

Without being paid, I can honestly say Shelle is the best. I only wish we didn't live a gazillion miles away from each other - she'd be a bff for sure. She does however, live in my favorite town of allll times and I did ask hubby if we could move there just this morning. sigh..... dang.

I also can honestly say that Sunday (the day we met up) was truly the highlight of my trip - ok ok, the friggin hot cowboys helped ALOT in that matter - but it wouldn't have been the same without Shelle.

She even made sure I didn't have basil in my teeth after eating my pasta (which was sooo very yummmmy) she could have been all rude like and let me take pics with her Snow White beautiful self and laughed as I had green goop - but no! she is that awesome.

we will meet again someday my dear - we will :)

Bull riding? Seriously?

I'm glad your collarbone is on the mend.

Mama Belle said...

Now that new love is unpredictable. Who'd a thunk it?

ZenMom said...

You are so adorable.

I never would have figured you for bullriding. Seriously. But good for you - sounds like a blast! So glad you had a good time.

Clavicle-schmavicle. Can't keep a good woman down. ;)

way to ignore the pain and get on with life...

I've never looked into bull riding as a spectator sport... I do know I'll avoid the actual riding of the bull however, because I'd surely break more than a clavicle...

Chief said...

How is the collar bone? How much longer ya got wearing the brace?

I am glad you guys had a good time!

Sage's post is hysterical!

tysdaddy said...

Never mind the comment I was going to make about bull riding and all that, because as I was scrolling down your page I saw someone in your Live Traffic Feed visiting from Bemidji, Minnesota. I went to college, the first time around, in Bemidji and lived there for a time after graduation. My wife and I were married in Bemidji. Bemidji?! I didn't even know they HAD internet in Bemidji! So I'm off to track them down . . .

Glad you're feeling better . . .

LOL You are a nut!

My dad used to ride bulls...does that make me cool on your list?

What about if I told you my mom used to barrel race the horses?

I'm so glad you are feeling better!

The funniest thing I did since you've been gone...
I went catfishing. I didn't catch anything but hubby did. Those things are UGLY!!!!

wendy said...

I admire that you could drive to VEGAS by yourself (one arm and all) in all that traffic. I love to drive........just NOT where there are lots of cars and merging and stuff.
I like it when the fastest thing on the road has an orange triangle stuck to it's behind.

I love bull riding!!! OK....If that's what it takes to get a visit, I could take you to all kinds of cowgirl events. The animal auction, steer wrestling, cow pie throwing.....CAN YOU DRIVE THE 16 HOURS it would take you to get here?????
I WANT COMPANY.

and sure Jules may be long and skinny (which is good) but she doesn't have your cute dimples.
I am also NOT long and skinny ---but I have dimples, they just happen to be on my butt.

glad you are feeling better
and I haven't really done anything funny lately. Unless you want to count emptying a pickle jar full of pee. My hubby hurt his back and was flat on his back for 3 days ...could..not..move. So he had to pee in a pickle jar.
Is that funny??????

Big Blue House said...

I am so glad you had a great time with Jules. She is a fun girl. How long will you have to be in the 'cast'? The blog world is unbelievable. I am fairly new at it and it continues to amaze me how you can meet people from all over the world. I hope you get to go to more bullriding.

Southern Sage said...

Vegas is so much fun - even more so when you have someone who's super fun to go with. Glad you're feeling better...I've missed you!

Coachdad said...

Dorks....

April said...

Color me jealous! We would go to the local rodeos on July 24th and we had a real live cowboy in our midst. Looks like you had a blast! You look like peeps in the last pic!! Not the cross-eyed part, the cute goofy part!

H.K. said...

You inspire me! You didn't let your injury get the best of you and prevent you from going to Vegas. Sounds like it was a fun time!

binks said...

Ok, after reading this, I have no doubt that bicycling story was just a cover. I know you must of cracked that sucker in half after trying that bullriding stuff at the local honkey tonk bar. Its ok, we won't judge.
Well, maybe a little.....

Great to hear that you are moving a bit more nowadays.... Love that last photo---it looks like my brain feels most days.

Here you Go SciFi Dad
