{Weekend Wrap-up // Rodeo // Working in the Shop}

Weekend wrap-up...on a Tuesday! Yesterday I was too defeated to even touch the blog {or anything, really}. It was the Monday-iest Monday ever. But, anyhow, better late than never.

We had a pretty good weekend. Friday we didn't do a whole lot...just went to dinner and visited with Nate's parents. Saturday was our annual trip to the Ft Worth Stock show and Rodeo. It's a tradition in Nate's family that his Grandfather started. Saturday was Nate's 34th, my 20th and Mason's 6th consecutive year to go. If you know anything about me then you know that I love traditions!! We had tickets for the 2 pm rodeo so we got there around 11 to walk around the barns, one swipe of the exhibits and out to the Midway area so that Mason can ride rides. The rides are always Mason's favorite part. That boy has no fear and would ride anything and everything if we let him.

If I am being honest, this wasn't my favorite rodeo. We didn't have a whole lot of time before the rodeo started and then the rodeo itself was kind of bleh. There were no good rides at all. After the rodeo we all trucked over to Joe T Garcia's for some good food! I started feeling really sick after the rodeo with a sinus headache, so the rest of the evening was kind of a drag for me. I was bummed, but just couldn't shake the headache. 

But Sunday...oh Sunday! Sunday was our favorite day! The sun was out and we were ready to get outside!! My brother in law let us know about a stack of pallets he found in a town nearby, so we went and scooped those up {but not before Mason put on his tie with his hoodie!!}. We are working on an epic pallet project and trying to collect as many as we can. We were able to get 7 really good pallets from the stack.

When we got back we worked on cleaning out the shop and organizing everything. It was a mess from our last few projects....

I plan to do a full post on our DIY Farmhouse kitchen table, but there is another sneak peek ^^.  While we worked in the shop Mason made sure to keep all of the bad guys away from our property, ate a couple of popsicles, generously gave out some cuddles and did a little mowing. We were outside until sundown and enjoyed every minute of it.

It was the best day! We really enjoyed being able to be in the shop with all the doors open and not freezing our buns off.
