WHAT I WORE: To See Usher at the Houston Rodeo

Friday, March 14, 2014

Hi Y'all! I love this time of year in Houston! Why? Because it's rodeo time! I'm fairly obsessed with going to to the rodeo. You'd think it was my first time going to the rodeo each year! I don't know why I love it so much! I just love the hustle and bustle of it all! I love the food, the carnival games, the animals, the shopping, the rodeo, and of course the big-hitter acts that come to perform at the Rodeo. Last year I went to see Mary J. Blige on Black Heritage Day, which is usually the first Friday of the Rodeo. This year for Black Heritage Night the committee brought Usher and I just happened to receive free tickets to go to the rodeo from some of the vendors I work with. They asked me to pick a night to attend so of cousre I picked USHER! I like to embrace all of my inner country gal when I go to the rodeo, so to attend the concert I busted out my Nocona boots & my cowboy hat.  Things I am hoping to obtain in the future for the rodeo include a bedazzled belt with a huge belt buckle, and some Miss Me jeans!  Check out what I wore to the concert and see images from the rodeo and concert below!
Can you find me? I kind of blend in!

Bulls! I'm just glad they are statues and not the real thing! Those bulls in the rodeo looked scary!
The concert is always at the end of all of the rodeo competitions for that night. The rodeo competitions start around 6:45 and have everything from barrel racing to mutton bustin!  Since I had to deal with traffic and getting to parking on a Friday night for the rodeo we were a little late to the "rodeo" portion of the event.  We got there just in time to see the last 2 bull-riders, chariot racing, college cattle rustling and the mutton bustin.  The production team for the rodeo set up the stage while mutton bustin is going on.  

Everytime I go to the rodeo I like to play with the filters on my camera! It's a great location to play with black and white and some of the other options. 

Usher is soooo sexy! Yessss honey!

After the rodeo we were still hungry because we were forced to eat NASTY reliant stadium food so we headed out to the tents of the rodeo and got some REAL food! Tina got a caramel topped funnel cake, and I had brisket and fried oreo.
