World's Toughest Rodeo - My Bucket List...& a Give Away!

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

It's a New Year & I'm seeing people's New Year's Resolutions everywhere I look these days ~
I myself, didn't make any...or rather, didn't put them out there for all the world to see...
Sure, I have them - I'm just not sharing them.
What I don't mind sharing however, is my own, personal - BUCKET LIST!

Who doesn't have a Bucket List, right?

Sure, I've got things on my Bucket List that will take some extensive planning (and money),
like an Alaskan Cruise or spending a couple of weeks driving to Banff...
But...I also have other, more attainable Bucket List items...

Like...Taking in a Real. Live. Rodeo!

That's right! I've always wanted to go to a REAL Rodeo...
Is it the North Dakotan in me? I doubt it - I didn't grow up in the cowboy part of the state...But I do love watching rodeos & bull riding on television.
So do my kiddos!

That's why I'm thrilled to be taking my family to The World's Toughest Rodeo in St. Paul on February 3rd!

World’s Toughest Rodeo stampedes into Saint Paul with two thrilling shows
Friday-Saturday, Feb. 3-4 at Xcel Energy Center starting at 7:30 p.m. each night.

The toughest cowboys in the world show off their skill in action-packed events that will entertain the whole family. Before the rodeo each night, children are invited to enjoy the "Cowboy Kids' Zone" where real life cowboys teach these future cowpokes how to properly lasso a steer, barrel race and even clown around.
The first 500 children (12 and under) Friday night will also receive a free cowboy hat.

Watch as nationally televised “Toughest Cowboy” competitor Charlie Barker from Ranger, TX tests his might and skill in the rodeo triathlon as he attempts to compete on up to six animals in a single night! See champion cowboys prove their grit in bull riding, bareback, saddle bronc and barrel racing exhibitions of power and agility. There is something for everyone – from barrel racing cowgirls to the wild antics of the rodeo clowns. The 2012 World's Toughest Rodeo will also feature Anthony Lucia, a nationally known trick and fancy roper that will be showcased at the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo this December in Las Vegas.
World’s Toughest Rodeo is an exciting spectacle families won’t soon forget.

Rising country star Justin Moore will perform Saturday night, Feb. 4, for the popular “Party On The Dirt” following World’s Toughest Rodeo. K102 contest winners get access to the “dirt dance,” but all rodeo fans are welcome to stay and enjoy the live entertainment. Since releasing his debut self-titled album in 2009, Moore has toured with some of country’s hottest stars including Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and Miranda Lambert. He is currently on the road promoting his second album, “Outlaws Like Me,” which features the No. 1 single “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.” Moore was recently nominated for an American Country Award (ACA) for Breakthrough Artist of the Year.

Tell me this doesn't sound like an AWESOME family date night?
I for one, cannot wait!

I have a bucket list to and I have it on my Blog. 40 things I want to do before I'm forty. One thing I want to do from that list that I'm sure we will do is go to a WILD game. a rodeo sounds fun too!

I have attended two rodeos in my lifetime... My dad actually knew one of the guys competing in the first rodeo so we met him afterwards and went out to dinner with him. A few years later we went to CO and stayed at their family ranch. I just remember being in awe of him when I was a kid.

So, although this is already checked off my "bucket list" there is still a trip to Bora Bora on the list....I keep waiting for you to have a giveaway trip to there but no such luck yet. What gives? :)
